Dutch Captain: Gerard Beelaerts

Gerard Beelaerts served the Admiralty of the Maze. He was born in Dordrecht on 20 June 1673 and died at The Hague on 24 May 1718. He was appointed as lieutenant on 20 February 1691. In 1701, he was promoted to Extraordinary Captain. In 1702, he was promoted to Captain. In 1710, he was appointed to Schout-bij-Nacht (Rear-Admiral). Unfortunately, he seems not to have been mentioned by De Jonge, so all we know is what is in Luc Eekhout's book. Sources:
