Dutch Captain: Hendrick Schrevels

I noticed that Hendrick Schrevels was listed in my document prior to 1645. In March 1628, he commanded the Zeehaan frigate (6 guns and a crew of 50 men). The Zeehaan was a vessel of 50 lasts. In 1635, he commanded the Harderwijk, as he did in 1639. He arrived late to the fleet and was assigned to the squadron of Denijs. In 1641, he commanded the Gouda. In 1643, he commanded the Frederik Hendrick, a flagship. With Witte de With's fleet in May-June 1645, he is listed as commanding the Prins Hendrick (30 guns and a crew of 100 men). Almost certainly, the Prins Hendrick is actually the Frederik Hendrick. Sources:
