Dutch Captain: Adriaan Laurenszoon Poort
Adriaan Laurenszoon Poort served the Admiralty of the Maze. He had fought in the Four Days' Battle as second captain on Aert van Nes's flagship, the Eendracht (76 guns). He was probably in the St. James's Day Battle, as well. In May and June 1673, he fought in the Schooneveld battles, in command of the Schieland (60 guns). He also was at the Battle of the Texel, still in command of the Schieland (now carrying 58 guns). He was assigned to Isaak Sweer's division. In June 1674, he commanded the Schieland (60 guns) in De Ruyter's expedition to Martinique. Sources:
