  • Notes 
    • He was a sea captain based in Boston. From a letter in the Boston News Letter, 25 Jan 1732/3, from Mr. David Linzey, mate of the brigantine Robert, dated 13 Dec 1732:

      "Sir, this comes to acquaint you of the dismal misfortune that has happened, Viz., the loss of Captain Balch. He was knocked overboard with the gaft seventeen days after we left Boston, about 5 o'clock in the afternoon, in lat. 17ยบ 3' N. We reckoned ourselves four leagues to the east'd of the Island of Antigua."
