Egbert Meeuwssen Kortenaer's squadron

From Dr. Elias, we find that Egbert Meeuwssen Kortenaer, whose permanent rank was kapitein-ter-zee, was a temporary squadron commander, acting as the admiral for the squadron. His temporary vice-admiral was Gideon de Wildt, who was appointed by the Admiralty of Amsterdam. His temporary schout-bij-nacht (rear-admiral) was Abel Roelantszoon Verboom. He was usually called Abel Roelants in the published literature. Sources:
