English Captain: Benjamin Firmase
Benjamin Firmase served towards the end of the Commonwealth. From 1659 to 1660, he commanded the 6th Rate Truelove (14 guns). Later in 1660, he commanded the 6th Rate Henrietta pinnace (6 guns). He did not serve after the Restoration (I checked sources to verify that). Sources:
