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.
