Captain Fortunatus Wright (d. 1757), English merchant and privateer, was financed by British merchants in 1744 at the outbreak of war with France to outfit a ship to prey on French shipping in the Mediterranean, which he did successfully for more than a decade. When prizes taken from the French included Turkish property, the Ottoman Empire - backed by the merchantsof the Levant company, successfully lobbied the British government to rule that turkish goods could not be seized. Wrwight was arrested briefly in December 1747, but soon returned to privateering; he was lost at sea and presumed dead in 1757.
