Sr John Hawkins should be on the list
MAY I propose one more name to the list of important 'Sons of Plymouth'?
It is that of Sir John Hawkins, pictured left, a man who did more for Plymouth than most of the other names put together.
He is not so well-known probably because of the lack of history taught in our schools today.
His popularity declined in Victorian times on account of his involvement with the slave trade.

It is strange that people conveniently forgot the slavery much nearer home that was domestic service.
