Dutch Captain: Cornelis van der Hoeven

Cornelis Jacobszoon van der Hoeven served the Admiralty of the Maze. In 1672, he commanded the snauw Faam (12 guns). He seems to have fought at the Battle of Solebay. In 1673, he commanded the frigate Schiedam (20 guns). He fought in the Schooneveld battles and the Battle of the Texel. He was assigned to De Ruyter's squadron at the latter battle (Kijkduin). He also participated in De Ruyter's expedition to Martinique in 1674, where he commanded the flute Juffrouw Katarina (9 guns). His ship transported 146 soldiers to Martinique. Sources:
