Flagmen of Lowestoft: Admiral Sir William Penn (1621-1670)
As captain of the fleet at the Battle of Lowestoft in 1665, he was in the flagship of James, Duke of York, who was in overall command. His experience and advice to the Duke did much to ensure the victory. Penn's son, a Quaker dissenter, was in 1682 the founder of the English colony (now American state) of Pennsylvania - the 'Penn' prefix being added by specific command of Charles II in honour of his father.
