Dutch Captain: Matthijs Paradijs
Matthijs Paradijs served the Admiralty of the Maze. In 1690, he commanded the frigate Rotterdam (44 guns) when he served as a convoyer in the North Sea. On 4 June 1692, he joined the fleet following the Battle of La Hougue. He commanded the ship Maagd van Dordrecht (60 guns). Apparently, later in 1692, with great effort, he brought the Rotterdam flagship Berschermer to Hellevoetsluis. In 1694, he was with the Mediterranean squadron. Sources:
