I found this awesome website that may be helpful in your American Revolution research.
The website contains a listing of 8000 prisoners of the British during the American Revolution.
The listing is alphabetical, by surname.
Comments from the Website:
“The British used the ships at Wallabout Bay, later the site of the Brooklyn Navy Yard, for naval prisoners on this side of the Atlantic. The prisoners included men captured on American privateers, merchant ships, French, Spanish, and Dutch vessels. After April 1780, the Jersey was the receiving ship where names were entered into records. [emphasis added]
