Luc Eekhout has a small bio of Lieven de Zeeuw
Under the year 1639, Luc Eekhout has a small bio piece about Lieven de Zeeuw. I have seen his first name written in a number of ways, including in handwriting from 1628 or 1629. Lieven de Zeeuw served the Admiralty of the Noorderkwartier. He took part in the Battle of the Downs in 1639. He was also on the abortive expedition to Brazil, under the command of Witte de With from 1647 to 1650. In 1639, he was appointed as a temporary Schout-bij-Nacht. This is from Luc Eekhout's book Het Admiralenboek. As I have previously written, we know he was in company with Maarten Tromp on 10 July 1639. This is a link to the longer piece that I had written about Lieven de Zeeuw.
