Information about Joost Banckert de Jonge
Joost Banckert de Jonge had commanded the ship Liefde (26 guns) in the First Anglo-Dutch War up to the Battle of Portland. I had known that he was killed in the battle, but I only realized last night that his ship had been captured, as well. That means that I will need to revise my ideas about the ships in the service of the Admiralty of Zeeland, later in 1653.
