Dutch Captain: Johannes Regermorter
Johannes Regermorter commanded a 30-gun ship hired by the Middelburg Directors. He seems to have fought in the Battle off Dover on May 29, 1652. In July and August, he was with Tromp's fleet on the voyage to the Shetlands, when the fleet was ravaged by a storm. In mid-August 1652, he was assigned to Witte de With's squadron. In December, he reported that Blake's fleet was on the Flemish coast. He seems to have fought in the Battle of the Kentish Knock. At the Battle of Dungeness, he was in Jan Evertsen's squadron. He fought in the Battle of Portland, where he was killed. Prior to his death, he had rescued Captain Cleydyck and most of his crew, when Cleydyck's ship was sunk. His ship carried his body back to Zeeland, as part of the 17 ships that sailed to Vlissingen after the battle. We wondered if his ship might have been the Leeuwin, a Directors ship that was known to have been at the Battle of Portland, according to Hondius. Sources:
