RAPHAEL

ALTERNATIVE NAME:  RAPHAELL
DESCRIPTION + /

RAPHAEL or RAPHAELL. 1468 or slightly earlier wreck of English cargo vessel which foundered in Bude Bay outside the jurisdiction of the law, homeward-bound to Bristol from Gdansk with "divers goods" which washed ashore and picked up by local tenants of the Abbot of Cleeve in and around the Bude area, since these tenants came from nearby Poughill. The owner of the vessel launched a claim for the restitution of his goods, leading to a counter-claim by the Abbot of Cleeve asserting his right to wreck. The RAPHAEL had earlier landed some crew or passengers at Sandwich and at Plymouth en route to Bristol. Constructed of wood, she was a sailing vessel.
