To the



Christopher Malim

  • There appears to have been an older Christopher Malim (?father of Christopher Malim in HCA 13/64 f.14r) who was also a shipwright of Redriff.

-- "FOURTH LION'S WHELP: Built by Christopher Malim of Redriff. Used for experiments on the "project of a Dutchman" c. 1633. Works in the hold were ordered to be removed in March 1634 as they were of no use in a man-of-war. I have not found any details of these works, which were probably carried out by Cornelis Drebbel, who died in 1633. Struck a rock in St. Aubin's Bay, Jersey on 4 August 16361 and sank, without loss of life."[1]
