The Aftermath of Cadiz

The Return of the Armadas

The first reports to reach England about the actions of the Cadiz expedition had raised high hopes. On July 18 off Dover eight or nine Dutch merchantmen, that had got away from San Lucar on June 24 in defiance of a Spanish embargo, were spoken with by Sir Henry Palmer. Three days earlier, they had put ashore at Salcombe four Bristol mariners who had escaped with them. All reported the naval action in Cadiz bay and the taking of the town. From France came even more glowing tales — the English had taken Jerez as well as Cadiz and were marching on Seville, Spain; Don Antonio's younger son with 6,000 Berbers and many galleys had joined them; the Berbers, with part of the English army, were to stay in Cadiz while the rest went on to Lisbon, Portugal. Lord Admiral Charles Howard and the Earl of Essex were called upon to discuss and defend their conduct of the expedition at a series of meetings with Queen Elizabeth I and their fellow Councillors.
