English 16th Century sea history;
Lord Howard of Effingham, Sir Richard Grenville, Drake and the Armada


This page picks up details of the parts played by the Revenge,
by Lord Howard of Effingham
and by Sir Richard Grenville
in the Elizabethan campaigns of sea expansion that culminated in the Armada,
as recounted in the excellent and most readable Sir Francis Drake
by George Malcolm THOMPSON (Book Club Associates 1972).

Under headings for Revenge, Grenville, Howard and the Azores,
the following list extracts and summarises indexed items in the above publication

There are two mentions of Sir Richard Grenville's action in 1591 off the Azores, leading to the surrender and foundering of the Revenge
(see Revenge, pp 256, 304 below)

Any further information, on-line or otherwise, about this naval action and the participants would be most welcome
