... as a supplement to my note earlier today about R Man and Plymouth, I now find - Newcastle Courant - Saturday 26 October 1728 - that Commodore St Loe took over the Plymouth because his men weer seasoned to the climate, and R Man was sent home in anther ship, presumably Lyon.

To complicate matters Robert Man was Captain of Lyon in 1728 - see Stamford Mercury - Thursday 05 December 1728
