The Battle of Black Trench occurred in September 1719, when a Spanish Navy merchant convoy was ambushed by the pirate captain Edward Kenway and the crew of the Jackdaw in the Yucatan Channel. The Jackdaw fell upon the armed merchant ship Neptuno and her escorts, the schooners Santa Monica and Santa Clara, and the Jackdaw disabled all of the ships. The pirates proceeded to board the Neptuno, capture it, and plunder it, and they made off with 3,000 reales.
