    Sir Richard Grenville (1542-1591) was a sailor and explorer. A cousin of both Sir Walter Raleigh and Sir Francis Drake, Grenville led a distinguised military career fighting against the Turks in Hungary in 1566 and later organised the defences of Devon and Cornwall in preparation for the expected attack by the Spanish Armada in 1588.
