Sir Francis Drake (1541 or 1542) in England.     Among many of his achievements he is perhaps remembered best for his involvement in the Spanish Armada and circumnavigating the globe on his famous World Voyage.  Sir Francis Drake died of dysentery at 55. The next day he was buried at sea in a lead coffin off Puerto Bello to the sound of trumpets and cannons.
