One inconsistency that I have seen in that Jacob Claesz. Duijm is pretty consistently described in 1652 as serving the Enkhuizen Directors, but Dr. Elias and the list of ships at Vlissingen in July 1653 describes him as serving the Edam Directors. The ship is the same, the Zon, or Vergulde Zon (or Son in 1652 style). In 1652, Hendrick de Raedt's pamphlet and the lists from 15 July 1652 and 19 or 20 September 1652 all describe him as serving the Enkhuizen Directors.
