17th & 18th century inventories.- An Inventarie taken of the goodes of James Parker pursor of his Maties Shipp called the Dreadnought..., manuscript on vellum, 2 membranes, a few small flaws, some surface wear but still legible, yellowed and slightly creased, 1010 x 120mm., 18th November 1646; and 4 others, including another 17th century inventory and 3 18th century inventories, all manuscripts on vellum, v.s., v.d. (5). ⁂ First mentioned, Dreadnought was a 41-gun galleon of the Tudor navy, built by Mathew Baker and launched in 1573. She was a radical innovation over contemporary ships. Dreadnought took part in many of the naval engagements between Britain and Spain in the late 16th and early 17th centuries. Under Captain Thos. Fenner, she was part of Drake's fleet which "singed the King of Spain's Beard" with the raid on Cadiz in Spring 1587, and also took part with the English fleet against the Spanish Armada in 1588. Having been rebuilt at least twice Dreadnought was broken up in 1648.
