English ships in the First Anglo-Dutch War I just completed a first draft of a comprehensive ship list for the English, in the First Anglo-Dutch War. The main purpose was to provide an overview, showing which battles a ship participated in. The list has ship name, nominal guns and captains. Ships are marked, where they were hired merchantmen or prizes. Most armaments are those which were typical for the ship. Where that was unknown, the armament was estimated, based on the burden, where known. The battle information is drawn from R.C. Anderson's article in the 1938 Mariner's Mirror.
