Dutch Captain: Adriaan Solderwagen

Adriaan Solderwagen served the Admiralty of the Maze. He fought in the Battle of Lowestoft, where he commanded the small frigate Schiedam (25 guns). He was assigned to Jan Evertsen's squadron. By August, he was no longer in command of the Schiedam. He does not appear in my references after that. Sources:
