Sir Walter Raleigh, English navigator, born in Hayes, in the parish of Budleigh, Devonshire, England, in 1552; died in Westminster, England, 29 October, 1618. His patronymic was written in 13 different ways, but Sir Walter himself spelled it Ralegh. Little is known of his father, Walter, except that he was a gentleman commoner, and that an earnest wayside remonstrance from him with the Romanist rioters of the west in 1544 caused his imprisonment for three days, and threats of hanging when he was liberated. His mother was the daughter of Sir Philip Champernown, of Modbury, and the widow of Otto Gilbert, by whom she was the mother of Sir John, Sir Humphrey, and Sir Adrian Gilbert. The book, held at the University of Michigan Library was produced from a digital copy that can be downloaded from, with a search by either author of title.
