Excerpt from Lives of the Most Celebrated British Admirals: Containing a Concise Account of the Characters, and an Accurate Detail of the Gallant Achievements, of the Most Distinguished Naval Heroes

Tins gallant seamen was the second son of Thomas earl of Surrey, and afterwards duke of Norfolk. Owe have no certain account of the exact time of his birth. He began very early, however, to testify his inclina tion to the sea-service for in 1492, when he was a very young man, he went out in a ¿eet commanded by sir Edward Poynings, with a view of acquiring skill in naval affairs, and in the art of war. The ¿eet which Poynings commanded, consisting of twelve sail, was sent by lung Henry VII. To assist the duke of Burgundy against his rebellious subjects. In couse quence of this assistance from the king of England, the duke was enabled to regain possession of the town and port of Sluys, which had been seized by his enemies; and in the course of this expedition, our young and noble seaman gave proofs of extraordinary bravery, and had on that account the honour of knighthood conferred on him. He gave frequent instances of his courage during the same reign; and on the accession of Henry VIII. That monarch made ch0ice of him for his standard-bearer; which in those days was not only amark of particular favour, but of the highest confi dence and respect.
