Sir Richard Grenville or Greynvile, (1541? - 1591), is described in the Dictionary of National Biography as 'interesting himself, in company with Sir Humphrey Gilbert, in 'an enterprise for the discovery of sundry rich and unknown lands', which never came to fruition. Further light has been shed on this plan and its abandonment, since the writing of that article, Richard Grenville did indeed produce such a scheme in 1574, which the Queen refused to licence, and the existence of that scheme became known when John Oxenham and two other Englishmen were captured in Panama in 1577.
