I believe that Sijmon Corneliszoon's ship sunk in June 1652 was the Prins
I was reviewing Vreugdenhil's list of Dutch ships and I now suspect that Sijmon Corneliszoon's ship sunk in June 1652 was the Rotterdam Director's ship Prins. The Prins is mentioned by Vreugdenhil as having been sunk in 1652, and is a Rotterdam Director's ship. The Prins is the only ship mentioned in the published literature that I have seen that fits the ship sunk in June.
