Dutch Captain: Willem Mariniszoon (or Marinissen)
Willem Mariniszoon served the Admiralty of Zeeland. He commanded the frigate Zeeridder during most of 1665 and 1666. By December 1666, he had been relieved by Pieter Mauregnault. In June 1665, he Willem Mariniszoon fought in the Battle of Lowestoft. He was assigned to Cornelis Evertsen de Oude's division. At the Four Days' Battle, he was just assigned to Cornelis Evertsen's squadron, as a frigate. At Lowestoft, the Zeeridder may have been acting as a small ship of the line. At the St. James's Day Battle, he was attached to Jan Evertsen's squadron, with the Zeeridder acting as a frigate.
