Dutch captain: Jan van Hardenbroeck
Jan van Hardenbroeck served the Admiralty of Amsterdam and was in the Danish service from 1675 to 1678. In 1676 he commanded the Danish ship Anna Sophia (56 guns) and fought at the Battle of Oland (in June 1676). In August 1676, he was before Ruland with the Danish fleet commanded by Cornelis Tromp. From 1678, he returned to the Dutch naval service. In 1688, he commanded the Gideon (60 guns) in the fleet that took Willem III to England. This is an edited version of Andrews communication, augmented slightly. Sources:
