Dutch Captain: Adam van Brederode

This is based on my translation of the entry in Mollema's "Honor Roll" with some additional material:

Adam van Brederode served the Admiralty of Amsterdam. He lived until 1676. In 1665, he distinguished himself at the Lowestoft in the Haarlem (46 guns). In 1666, he burnt English ships in the Elbe as a reprisal for the attack on the Vlie by Robert Holmes. In 1673, he commanded the Prins te Paard (55 guns) at the Battle of the Texel. In 1676, he commanded the Vrijheid (50 guns) in the battles at Etna and Palermo and in the latter battle was severely wounded.
