Dutch Captain: Jan Minne

Jan Minne served the Admiralty of Amsterdam. He commanded the Prins te Paard (52 guns) with Scheper's expedition to the Sound in 1683. His ship was one of those wrecked and he was drowned in a storm on 15 November 1683. The disaster was in part due to the fact that little maintenance had been performed on the ships and they were poorly equipped. De Jonge only mentions him in conjunction with the expedition to the Sound and his death in the storm. Sources:
