Hillebrandt Jeroenszoon's ship, the Hollandsche Tuin

Hillebrandt Jeroenszoon commanded the small, hired ship on 25 June 1652 and remained in service until about March 1653, when the ship was lying in the Texel, paid off. In August 1652, he was on a convoy to Muscovy. In September, his ship was lying in the Schooneveld with Witte de With's fleet and presumable fought in the Battle of the Kentish Knock. In December, he was assigned to a convoy that was to separate from the fleet and head for the French channel ports. This is the data for the ship:
