Dutch Captain: Philip van der Gijssen
Philip van der Gijssen served the Admiralty of Amsterdam. In 1688, he commanded the Noord-Holland (46 guns) in the fleet that carried Willem III to England. In June 1689, he commanded the frigate Damiaten (36 guns) and operated under the command of Gerard Callenburgh in the Channel. Curiously, while De Jonge lists him with the fleet in 1688, Philip van der Gijssen is absent from the index. In 1696, he commanded the Amsterdam (64 guns) in the fleet commanded by Philips van Almonde. Sources:
