Born John Roberts, much of his early life is unknown. However, he would later become the most successful pirate of the Golden Age, capturing over 170 vessels in his career. It is unknown why he changed his name to Bartholomew, but it's possible it was an homage to the privateer Bartholomew Sharp.
Although history remembers Roberts as "Black Bart," he never used that name during his lifetime.
