Captain Hoseason and Ebenezer Balfour of Shaws conspire together to kidnap David Balfour, the true heir to Shaws.  Ebenezer pays Hoseason 20 pounds to take David to the Carolinas, to be sold (for Hoseason's profit) as a slave. After Mr. Shuan, the 1st officer, murders the cabin boy in a drunken rage, he has David take on the cabin boy duties.

When  Alan Breck Stewart comes aboard, he leads his crew to kill and rob the Highlander. Unfortunately for him, David  sides with Alan and they fight off the crew's attack, with Hoseason wounded in the arm by a pistol shot from David  in the fight. With 6 crew dead (including the pilot Mr. Shuan), he bargains with Alan and agrees to set him on  land.

The ship Covenant wrecks on the shore of the Isle of Mull and Hoseason tries to get the surviving crew to kill Alan but Allen escapes them with the help of the Covenant's 2nd officer Mr. Riach. Hoseason returns to Queensferry  and informs Ebenezer that David drowned (only having seen the boy washed overboard and not learning of his  survival).
