The Noorderkwartier ship Engel (UPDATE)

Carl Stapel found a list of Noorderkwartier ships in 1652 that will "make news". By that, I mean that there is information in there that is not found, otherwise. One of the ships mentioned is a hired ship named Engel (29 guns and a crew of 75 sailors). The captain's name was Woogters. This would appear to be the ship listed as number 107 in Vreugdenhil's list. Vreudenhil says that the Engel was lost in 1652. Carl Stapel says that this ship is NOT the ship in Vreugdenhil's list. Sources:
  1. personal communication from Carl Stapel, "lijst alle capiteins 1652 in het Noorderkwartier", 2006
