Lost with the warship Amsterdam and likely saw service in Ireland
Niko Brinck’s observations
Another Horsmonden cannon in the Wreckmuseum of Terschelling, NL. It was cast in 1623 by John Browne as his initials I B are near the touch hole. It is an iron saker, probably cast for land-use in Ireland as it shows a small club on the first reinforce. The gun was found by the divers of the island in a wreck of an Amsterdam warship and the gun shows the arms of this Admiralty.
