Richard Hakluyt: London’s role in navigation and history

Anthony Payne

Richard Hakluyt (1552-1616) is famous for his Principal Navigations, intended both to record past maritime achievement and to inspire new endeavours.

Hakluyt was supported by the Clothworkers' Company and by his cousin (also Richard), a Middle Temple lawyer connected to City overseas trading interests.

This lecture will explore Hakluyt's enterprise in the context of these London associations.

This is a part of the Tudor Ports of London series celebrating the centenary of the Port of London Authority (PLA). Other lectures in the series include:
The Legal Quays: Sir William Paulet, First Marquis of Winchester
Mary Rose: The First Ship of our Standing Navy
The Livery Companies in Tudor London
Merchants and Heroes: London's history in the time of John Stow

The final event will be a conference at The Museum of London in Docklands on the 16th of May: The Tudor Port of London: An Archaeological Investigation
