The Dutch fleet sent to the Caribbean in 1677

I have not seen this list of ships dispatched to the Caribbean in 1677 to fight the French anywhere else. Thanks to Mr. Carl Stapel who compiled the list. All ships belonged to the Admiralty of Amsterdam. I have done only minor editing. We are the beneficiaries of Mr. Stapel's work.
  • Adm Date Built, Ship, Guns, Captain
  • A 1665 Beschermer, 50 guns Jacob Binckes
  • A 1654 Huis te Kruiningen, 56 guns Roemer Vlacq
  • A 1665 Agatha, 50 guns Jan Bont (he was later beheaded )
  • A 1643 Zeelandia, 44 guns Pieter Constant
  • A 1668 Leiden, 34 guns Galtie Galtjes ( he was a commandeur for captain Richewijn [who] died on the way to the West-Indies ).
  • A 1661 Middelburg, 36 guns Jan Swart
  • A 1661 Popkensburg, 24 guns Pieter Stolwijk
later in september 1676 they were joined by:
  • A 1644 Star, 30 guns Pieter Cooreman
  • adviesjachten A ? Fortuijn commandeur Jan Erasmus
  • A 1675* Kreeft, 8 guns Gerrit Soeteman
  • A ? Soete lam

  • A 1674* Sperha Mundi, 9 guns
  • A Koning David
  • A Monnik
  • A 1667* 26 st
  • Wapen van de Hertog van York ( a former fireship from 1667 ! ).
I may not have divided the list correctly. If not, I will correct it later.
