The Groenewold seems to have been renamed Groningen

I have just finished my first reading of a letter from Eimert Smits, the researcher who compiled the information listed at De Sneuper website. I now suspect that the Friesland admiralty ship Groningen was actually the purchased Groenewold, renamed. The length and beam fit, for example: 132ft x 31ft. Eimert Smits indicates that the Groningen was in service in 1652, as Hendrick Janszoon Camp's flagship. I'm starting to understand why that is likely.
