In 1692 Stout was arrested in India while serving with James Kelley. The prisoners escaped by boat four years later and made their way to Bombay. There, they enlisted as crew members under the command of Captain Edgecumbe aboard the Mocha. Eight days after leaving port, Stout and other members of the crew seized the Mocha. Twenty-seven of the Mocha's crew escaped and reached shore safely, but Captain Edgecumbe wasn't as fortunate. The pirates bludgeoned him to death, threw him overboard and stole the ship's booty. With the success of the attack, the pirates elected Stout as their new captain. Captain Stout sailed their newly captured ship to Mergui Archipelago, southeast of Burma, where he ran into the merchant ship which had arrested pirates Robert Culliford and others. Stout captured the ship, freed the pirates who then joined his crew. In 1693, Stout cruised between India and the Strait of Malacca alongside the ship the Charming Mary. They were extremely successful, plundering lots of booty from seven or more ships. Stout was a cruel man who had a priest tortured after capturing a Portuguese ship and on another occasion, seizing a vessel, locking up its crew and burning them alive along with the ship. The Mocha and Charming Mary parted ways in 1697. Stout sailed off to the Laccadive Islands where he was eventually murdered.
