Captain William Kidd had two kids.
Sara and Elizabeth Kidd lived with their mother, Sara Oort Kidd, on 56 Wall Street in New York City when William Kidd was put to death in 1701.
While waiting to be hung, Kidd confessed no crimes to the chaplain, only that his greatest sorrow was dying without the chance to say good-bye to his wife and children back home.
