Could an old (16th Century) cannon be heard five miles away?

Could very old (16th Century) cannons be heard five miles away? This is pretty important for a story I'm writing. I know that later, huge artillery pieces could be heard for many miles, but these would be small iron pieces for a small military outpost. On a calm day, could their sound travel that far?
