Notes

It was reported that the King "is very much pleased with the new frigate built at Portsmouth, the Royal Oak, and has ordered Tippets, the shipwright who built her, to build just such another, and not to mend her in any part, being assured that anything which is not just so cannot be so good" (CSPD, 9/3/1665, quoted in The Ship of the Line Vol I).
