About Roger Grenville, Esq., of Corwall

McKee, Stirland and several other authors have named Roger Grenville (father of Richard Grenville of the Elizabethan-era Revenge) captain of the HMS Mary Rose when it sank during the Battle of the Solent.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_Rose

The Mary Rose was a carrack-type warship of the English Tudor navy of King Henry VIII. After serving for 33 years in several wars against France, Scotland, and Brittany and after being substantially rebuilt in 1536, she saw her last action on 19 July 1545. While leading the attack on the galleys of a French invasion fleet, she sank in the Solent, the straits north of the Isle of Wight. The wreck of the Mary Rose was rediscovered in 1971 and salvaged in 1982 by the Mary Rose Trust in one of the most complex and expensive projects in the history of maritime archaeology. The surviving section of the ship and thousands of recovered artefacts are of immeasurable value as a Tudor-era time capsule.
