    The Samuel Pepys in Huntingdon between Peterborough and Cambridge.

    Samuel Pepys was no sailor but he did rise to be Chief Secretary to the Admiralty during the reigns of Kings Charles II and James II. His reforms at the Admiralty were important in the early professionalization of the Royal Navy. He is also famous, of course, for writing his diary.

    I think that it probably refers to Prince Maurice, (Moritz Pfalzgraf von der Pfalz), 1621-52, the younger brother of Prince Rupert, who as Commander in the West of the Royalist forces captured Dartmouth in October 1643 and with it forty Parliamentary ships. After the Royalists surrendered in 1646 he and Prince Rupert were banished from England by order of Parliament.

    Maurice returned to the Prince of Orange's army until the summer of 1648 when he joined Prince Rupert and the Prince of Wales (later Charles II) in a squadron of warships that had defected to the Royalists. In 1649, Maurice sailed with Rupert on his raids against Commonwealth shipping from a base at Kinsale in southern Ireland until their squadron was chased by Robert Blake from the Irish Sea to Lisbon and the Mediterranean. When Blake drove the brothers from the Mediterranean, they sailed to West Africa where Maurice raised his flag as Rupert's vice-admiral in a captured English ship, renamed the Defiance. With only four ships remaining, they crossed the Atlantic in 1652 to resume their privateering activities in the West Indies.

    Maurice was lost at sea during a storm near the Virgin Islands in mid-September 1652. His loss deeply affected Rupert who for many years believed a persistent rumour that Maurice had survived the storm and was a prisoner of the Spaniards.

    Well done! Spot on so you win the spot prize Dave.
    Maybe we should put up all these obscure factoids as a quiz at the end of the year to see if everybody is keeping up with our posts.

    The Hoste Arms at Burnham Market in Norfolk.

    It is named after Captain Sir William Hoste KCB RN, one of Lord Nelson's protegees. He fought in many sea battles. Some of his exploits inspired events in Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey-Maturin series of books. One of his sons became an Admiral. Sadly, I believe that the pub sign no longer bears his picture but simply the name of the pub instead.
