It runs out that the Journal of John Narborough gives the English fireship names for Solebay
Pages 80 to 81 of R. C. Anderson's book, Journals and Narratives of the Third Dutch War, in the section covering John Narborough's journal from January 7, 1671/2 to September 18, 1672, has the English fireship names and their divisional assignments. It doesn't address the French, however. Apparently, they only had 6 fireships, not 16, as Geschiedenis van het Nederlandsche Zeewezen had indicated.
