Notes :

The Royal Anne, built at Woolwich and launched in 1709, was a fifth rate and the last oared fighting ship built for the Royal Navy. She was carrying Lord Belhaven, the new Governor of Barbados, to the West Indies in 1721 but when bad weather forced her to return to port in Falmouth and she was wrecked on the Stag Rocks. The site was discovered by members of the Southwest Branch of the N autical Archaeology Society in 1992, and artefacts raised include cutlery bearing Lord Belhaven's family crest.
