Cabin boy: no.1 in series
Ship's boys were usually aged between twelve and sixteen years. Some came from poor families, others who had been convicted of petty crimes or vagrancy were recommended by magistrates. They were at the bottom of the naval hierarchy and were tasked with such menial duties as cleaning the pigsties and hen coops.
