Cornelis Tijbij was Bastiaan Tuyneman's lieutenant at Dover on 29 May 1652
I had not taken in the fact that Cornelis Tijbij was Bastiaan Tuyneman's lieutenant on the Sint Laurens, which was taken by the English off Dover on 29 May 1652. In August, Cornelis Tijbij now commanded the fireship Ostende, a frigate. Later in 1653, he commanded a Directors' ship from Zeeland, the Luipaard.
