Soloman Syed was an Indian seaman aboard the Obra Dinn during her last voyage in 1802. He caught a fatal lung disease and succumbed to it.
Story and fate
Later, off the coast of Portugal, he and a fellow crewmate, Renfred Rajub, died of a lung disease that they had caught in a lascar house back in England. Surgeon Henry Evans could only rule out consumption as the cause.
The East India Company insurance assessment of the Obra Dinn incident awarded Syed's estate £15 in outstanding wages.
