Portrait of the 'Dartmouth'
The 'Dartmouth' viewed from the port quarter and carries, on the broadside, nine guns on the gun deck, two forward and four aft on the upper deck and two on the quarterdeck. She has square decorated ports. Robinson identifies this as a 32-gun ship (rather than a 30) based on the number of upper deck guns, making it either the 'Sapphire', 'Success', 'Swan', 'Mermaid' or 'Dartmouth': of two others the 'Eagle' was made a fireship in 1667 and the 'Sorlings' was lost in 1667. The quarter galleries are early (so it is unlikely to be the later 'Sapphire' or 'Swan') and since they and the stern galleries are very similar to the 'Portsmouth' (PAH1841) it may be the Portsmouth-built 'Dartmouth'.
