Apparently the Flying Dutchman is believed to be a Dutch man-of-war seen in clouds around the Cape of Good Hope.
According to Wikipedia, the origin of Davy Jones is even more vague.
So, my question is what is the first sci-fi and fantasy novel, novella or story that mentions Davy Jones. A simple mention of Davy Jones' Locker is not what I am looking for (since that appears to have been an idiom used for the bottom of the sea). Davy Jones himself must be mentioned.
In order to clarify:
- The work should be considered as sci-fi and/or fantasy.
- It must mention Davy Jones.
I am not looking for any non-sci-fi work that mentions Davy Jones as a bedtime story, however, feel free to mention them in the comments.
