Dutch Captain: Matthijs Laurenszoon
Matthijs Laurenszoon served the Admiralty of Zeeland. He was with the fleet on 23 May 1673, where he commanded the adviesjacht Zwaluw (6 guns), when he was attached to Lt-Admiral Bankert's squadron. He was apparently absent from the First Schooneveld Battle. He certainly was present with the fleet on 12 June, when he was still with Bankert's squadron. He fought in the Battle of the Texel in August, where he was assigned to Cornelis Evertsen's division in Bankert's squadron. In 1674, he was with De Ruyter's expedition to Martinique. He commanded the water fluit Bruijnvisch. Sources:
