Dutch Captain: Jan de Laucourt

Jan de Laucourt served the Admiralty of the Maze. In 1671, Brandt called him Joan Jacob de Laucourt, when he commanded the newly built Rotterdam ship Zeelandia (44 guns). In 1672, he fought in the Battle of Solebay in the Zeelandia. He not very heavily engaged as his ship had just one man severely wounded and one lightly wounded. Sources:
