Brent Brisben

Brent W. Brisben is an American treasure hunter best known for salvaging the shipwrecks of the historic 1715 Treasure Fleet, a Spanish treasure fleet returning from the New World to Spain. During the early morning hours of July 31, 1715, seven days after departing from Havana, eleven of the twelve ships of this fleet were lost in a hurricane near present-day Vero Beach, Florida; because the fleet was carrying silver, it is known as the 1715 Plate Fleet. Some artifacts and coins still wash up on Florida beaches from time to time. Brisben and his father William O. Brisben founded 1715 Fleet - Queens Jewels, LLC in 2010; the Brisbens purchased the exclusive salvage rights to the 1715 Treasure Fleet from the heirs of world-famous treasure hunter Mel Fisher. Just 17 days after the purchase, a subcontractor to 1715 - QJ recovered the only bronze swivel gun found on the 1715 Fleet. Hidden inside the bronze cannon were 40 silver reales. Within a month of the cannon find, a mother/daughter team of subcontractors of Brisben's company recovered the "Pelican in Piety".

The find was valued at $885,000. In July 2013, Brisben and his crew aboard the M/V Capitana made headlines with the recovery of 51 gold escudos valued at $300,000. Days on Sept 1, 2013 a family of subcontractors recovered 50 feet of gold chain and 5 gold escudos valued at over $350,000. On July 28, 2015, Brisben announced that the same family of subcontractors had found over 50 gold coins worth 1 Million Dollars; the centerpiece of the find was an rare coin called a Royal dated 1715. The Royal coin was a perfect specimen of Spanish coinage made for King Phillip V. On July 30 and 31 of 2015, Brisben and his crew aboard the M/V Capitana made one of the most significant finds in 1715 Fleet History. On the actual 300th Anniversary of the sinking of the 1715 Fleet, they recovered 300 gold coins including 7 Royals. Over the next week of salvage they added 50 more coins including 2 Royals; the story of the recovery of 350 Spanish Escudos and 9 Royals worth 4.5 Million Dollars made headlines worldwide.

The rhyme was first recorded when published in Mother Goose's Melody in London around 1765. In this version the names of the birds were Jack and Gill: There were two blackbirds Sat upon a hill, The one was nam'd Jack, The other nam'd Gill; these names seem to have been replaced with the apostles Paul in the 19th century.

Both hands are shown to the child as fists with the two fingers with marked nails pointing forward – these represent Peter and Paul.
