Dutch Captain: Cornelis Hollardt

Cornelis Hollardt served the Admiralty of Zeeland. In 1671 and into early 1672, he commanded the snauw Tijdverdrijf (6 guns), which served as an adviesjacht. He fought in the Battle of Solebay, where he commanded the adviesjacht Bruijnvisch (6 guns). He was assigned to Lt-Admiral Banckert's squadron. He was still with the fleet on July 31, 1672, with Lt-Admiral Banckert. The only other place that we see him was with Cornelis Tromp's fleet sent to operate on the French coast in from May 1674. He commanded a 32-gun ship attached to Lt-Admiral Banckert's squadron. Sources:
