Dutch Captain: Adriaan van Rheede
Adriaan van Rheede served the Admiralty of Amsterdam. In July 1654, he commanded the jacht Prinses, a vessel with 12 guns and dimensions 70ft x 18ft. He commanded the Tromp (or Muiltromp) at the Battle of Lowestoft, where he was assigned to Cornelis Tromp's squadron. The Tromp was taken in the battle and Adriaan van Rheede was captured, however the Tromp eventually was "let go" and rejoined the Dutch, although without her captain. Sources:
