Stayner (d. 1662)
A naval commander, he distinguished himself in the First Dutch War (1652-54) and was rear-admiral of the fleet in early 1660, and on the voyage with Mountagu early that year.
Stayner was a friend and confidant of Mountagu, and in 1660 helped him in some electioneering in Dover.
He was knighted by both Cromwell and again by Charles II (a situation similar to Mountagu's brother-in-law, Henry Wright).
In 1662 he died in Lisbon.
