Johannes van Regermorter's ship

From the Witte de With's journals, I found that Johannes van Regermorter's ship was named Leeuwinne (the archaic spelling). Johannes van Regermorter was killed in the Three Days Battle (Portland), but his ship survived. One of Witte de With's lists from May 1653 gives the name. In August 1652, Johannes van Regermorter's ship, a Middelburg Directors' ship, carried 30 guns and had a crew of 105 men. Sources:
