Dutch Captain: Gerolf Ysselmuyden

Gerolf Ysselmuyden served the Admiralty of the Maze. He fought in the Battle of Solebay, where he commanded the Delft (62 guns). The Delft was assigned to Lt-Admiral De Ruyter's squadron. The Delft had 20 men killed, 13 severely wounded, and 4 lightly wounded. Gerold Ysselmuyden was among the wounded. De Jonge writes that Gerolf Ysselmuyden had been captain of marines, and fought in the Battle of the Smyrna Convoy on the old ship Klein Hollandia (44 guns), which was sunk. Sources:
