Phips salvages Nuestra Señora de la Concepción

Last updated: November 1, 2017 at 2:59 am

[ 1687 ] A diving bell is used by Sir William Phips to recover treasure from the wreck of the Spanish galleon Nuestra Señora de la Concepción in the West Indies. Phips’ salvage of the Spanish galleon off San Domingo earns him a knighthood and eventually makes him High Sheriff of New England. In 1690, Phips unsuccessfully tries to take the city of Québec (New France). The remains of one of his ships, the Elizabeth & Mary, are discovered in the St. Lawrence Gulf at a depth of 3 m (10 ft) by diver Marc Tremblay in 1994.
