Dutch Captain: Bastiaan Tuyneman

Bastiaan Tuyneman (or Tuynemans) served the Middelburg Directors. At the start, he commanded the 30-gun ship Sint Laurens. In the opening action of the war, off Dover, his ship was disabled and captured by the English. In 1659, he commanded the Zierikzee, and was with De Ruyter's fleet that was dispatched to the Baltic. He fought at the Battle of Lowestoft in 1665, where he commanded the Wapen van Zeeland (36 guns) in Jan Evertsen's division. Sources:
