English Captain: Leonard Lidcott

Andrew says that Leonard Lidcott was an army major. In 1648, he was assigned to the navy. In 1648, he was assigned as captain of the Dutch prize Satisfaction. From 1649 to 1650, he was captain of the 3rd Rate Garland. In 1650, he was assigned as captain of the 2nd Rate Rainbow. R. C. Anderson suggests that Leonard Lidcott may never have actually served at sea, despite these assignments. Certainly in the summer of 1648, Francis Penrose commanded the Satisfaction. Neither Michael Baumber nor The Letters Of Robert Blake mention Leonard Lidcott. Sources:
