English Captain: Martin Carslake

Martin Carslake served in the Restoration navy. In 1665, he commanded the Dutch prize Charles V, then the Montagu, and finally the 2nd Rate Vanguard. In 1669, he commanded the Golden Hand storeship, under Sir Thomas Allin. He had sailed from the Downs to join Sir Thomas Allin off the coast of Spain, where they operated against the Algerian pirates. Martin Carslake was ordered to conduct offensive operations despite commanding a storeship. Sources:
