Marinus de Clerq in 1652

Marinus de Clerq was with the Dutch fleet in early December 1652, so he probably fought in the Battle of Dungeness. There is a note in Dr. Elias's book (Vol.II, p.84) that in June 1652, Marinus de Clerq commanded the ship previously commanded by Captain Schooneman. In the 26 February 1652 list, Captain Schooneman commanded the Dolphijn (28 guns), a ship belonging to the Admiralty of Rotterdam (the Maze).
