Daily entries from the 17th century London diary
From the site mentioned by David Bell.
Kentish, built Johnson at Deptford 1652 and wrecked in 1672.
Cool, and there's some history to the fact that Sam calls it the "Kent," and that it was launched as the "Kentish."
This 601 ton frigate *HMS Kentish*, built the same year as the Parliamentary victory at Kentish Knock, was I guess named after that victory.
It was renamed to *HMS Kent* upon the Restoration in 1660.
Wrecked near Cromer in 1672, alas.
