Allert Tamessen in 1645
Allert Janszoon Tamessen (or Taemsen) commanded the Enkhuizen Directors ship Dolphijn in 1645. The Dolphijn carried 34 guns and had a crew of 85 men. We know Allert Janszoon Tamessen, because he commanded the Wapen van Hoorn (30 guns and a crew of 115 men) in 1652-1653 for the Admiralty of the Noorderkwartier. He I have confused him in the past with the Zeeuws captain Allert Janszoon, who commanded the Dubbele Arend during the First Anglo-Dutch War. Sources:
