1667

Samual Pepys in his Diary made an entry about Leigh on July 17th.  He wrote: "My sister Michell came from Lee to see us; but do tattle so much of the late business of the Dutch coming tither that I am weary of it.  She saw the Royal Charles brought into the river by them, and how they shot off their great guns for joy when they got her out of Chatham River."
