This question is beyond the chronological limits of this newsgroup but I don't think there is anywhere else I could ask this question. The real story in which Robinson Cruse was based involved a Lieutenant Captain Thomas Stradling, read https://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/the-real-robinson-crusoe-74877644/. Could he have been the same man as the namesake son of Edward Stradling, 4th Baronet of St Donat's Castle, who died at sea?
