Jan Janszoon Dick Jan Dick lived until 10 July 1690. He served the Admiralty of the Noorderkwartier. He was a captain in 1671 and a Schout-bij-Nacht in 1673. In 1672, he fought at Solebay where his ship, the Jozua was sunk. In 1673, he commanded the Eenhoorn (70 guns) at Schooneveld, and fought as a Schout-bij-Nacht at the Battle of the Texel (Kijkduin), where he was severely wounded. In 1674, he served under Cornelis Tromp on the French coast and in the Mediterranean Sea. In 1688, he commanded a squadron in the fleet that brought William III to England. In 1690, he was killed at the Battle of Beach Head (Bevesier). This is from my translation from Mollema's "Honor Roll".
