Lievens de Zeeuw This is what J.C. Mollema had to say about Lievens de Zeeuw: He served the Admiralty of the Noorderkwartier. He became a captain in 1636. In 1637, he commanded the Wapen van Nassau under Tromp before Dunkirk. In 1639, he fought at the Battle of the Downs. For his service, he received a gold medal. In 1643 of the blockading force before Dunkirk. In 1645, he served with Witte de With in the Sound. That was when they forced a fleet of merchantmen into the Sound without paying the toll to the Dutch. There is a picture on my website of De Zeeuw's ship sailing from the Vlie, with the fleet: Wapen van Nassau sailing from the Vlie in 1645. De Zeeuw served as a temporary Schout-bij-Nacht, under Witte de With, in the rescue fleet sent to Brazil and fought at the battle for Bahia, after which De With removed him from his position.
