Sir Francis Charles Chichester KBE (17 September 1901 – 26 August 1972), was an aviator and sailor born in Barnstaple in 1901. He was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II for becoming the second person to sail single-handed around the world, and the fastest circumnavigator, achieving this feat in nine months and one day! (The first recorded solo circumnavigation of the globe was by Joshua Slocum in 1898 but it took him three years with numerous stops). The sea-faring Chichester family were the owners of the grand Arlington Court, the stately home near Barnstaple now owned by the National Trust.
