I have this page dated 24 May 1652

There is a page dated 24 May 1652. There had been a date of 29 April 1652, but a line is drawn through it. The page has a list of seven Rotterdam captains:
Dirck Claesz van Dongen
Isaack de Jongh
Jacob van Cleijdijck
Sijmon Cornelisz van der Meer
Ruth Jacobsz Buijs
Arien Cornelisz de Zeeuw

We could play a game of "what name seems to not belong here?". The name that is "out of place" is Dirck Claesz van Dongen. The others commanded Rotterdam Directors' ships, but he commanded a ship involved in fishery protection. Does anyone have an explanation?
