Hi, Richard. Not sure all the references to Lorenzo in chanties are related. There will have been plenty of them of that name aboard I'm sure.
WG: Stan gives several possibilities for this name 'none of them convincing' in his opinion. See page 250 In SftSS. I'd be interested to see Gibb's take on this. His book hasn't got an index.
