Luc Eekhout has just a short bio of Gerrit (Gerard) van der Dussen. Gerrit van der Dussen was born in Schiedam on 10 November 1636. He lived until 17 July 1711. He was a commander in the expedition to take William III to England in 1688. He served the Admiralty of Amsterdam. He was promoted to extraordinary captain in 1675. In 1687, he was promoted to captain. He was promoted to Schout-bij-Nacht on 26 September 1703. He became a Vice-Admiral on 22 March 1709. This is based on Luc Eekhout's book Het Admiralenboek.
