Dutch Captain: Adriaan van Cruiningen

Adriaan van Cruiningen served the Admiralty of Zeeland. He commanded the frigate Ter Goes (30-34 guns) at the Battle of Lowestoft and in August 1665. He fought in the St. James's Day Battle, where he commanded the Dordrecht (49 guns). In 1671, he commanded the Veere (or Kampveere) (50 guns). He also fought in the Battle of Solebay, in May 1652, and continued in command in July and September 1672. That is the last that my sources mention him. Sources:
