More about Cornelis Adriaanszoon Cruijck

Dr. Elias has more about Cornelis Adriaanszoon Cruijck. Cornelis Arentszoon Cruijck served the East-Indian-Indian company, up to November 1652. At that time, he became captain of the Vogelstruijs (eventually taken by the English at the Battle of Portland). Later, he was appointed to the council and as assistant to Lord Obdam. He established himself later at Schiedam, where in 1665, he was appointed to the town cuncil. Later that year, he was placed on the council of deputies of their high majesties of the fleet. Sources:
