English Captain: William Bustow

Apparently, Bustow is the correct spelling for William Bustow's last name. In 1664, he was lieutenant on the Unicorn. In 1666, he was captain of the fireship Young Prince. He successfully attacked and burnt Pieter Salomonszoon's ship the Liefde at the Four Days Battle. In 1667, he commanded the frigate Francis. In 1673, he commanded the Mary yacht. He was drowned in 1675, according to Pepys. Sources:
