A Draught of a Jacobean Three Decker, the Prince Royal

By W. Salisbury, published August 1961


Launched in 1610, the Prince Royal 55 guns, was built at Woolwich by Phineas Pett and rebuilt there in 1641. She was captured and burnt by the Dutch 13 June 1666 during the Four Day Battle. In this article the author suggests that a ‘mutilated pencil drawing’ in the National Maritime Museum’s plans collection (HIS0098) might represent the ship. Details of the reconstruction of the missing portions are given together with a sheer draught drawing and suggested section of the Prince Royal.
