English Captain: John Andrews

John Andrews served in the Restoration navy. In 1664, he was appointed as captain of the Lizard. Apparently on 10 May 1665, he had been with the fleet, but by 3 June 1665, the Lizard was lying at Portsmouth. In 1666, he was appointed to command the Sophia. On the other hand, Syrett and DiNardo say he died before 1665. I have reviewed all relevant sources, and this is the extent of what could be found. Sources:
