Son of following. Commanded a trading expedition
from Boston to Hudson Bay in 1683, and built a fort some miles up the
Nelson River. Pierre Radisson captured the fort, and carried Gillam a
prisoner to Quebec, where he was promptly released by the governor.
Sailed for Boston, and arrested on behalf of the Hudson's Bay Company
for poaching in their territory. Seems to have turned pirate a year or
two later; captured at Boston, carried to England with Captain Kidd, who
had been arrested at the same time, and hanged with his fellow pirate.
