Per L&M Companion:
Served in the Commonwealth navy and from 1661 held five commissions before his death in action in 1666.
TERNE, Henry,—was appointed commander of the Hampshire in 1661, and the Milford and Portsmouth successively in 1663. He commanded the Dreadnought of fifty-eight guns in the great action with the Dutch in 1665; and, on account of the gallantry he there displayed, was promoted in the following year, 1666, to the Triumph, a second rate of seventy-two guns. In this ship he was unfortunately killed in the first action which took place with the Dutch in the month of June following.---Biographia Navalis. J. Charnock, 1794.
