Google Book Search
Google Book Search now has even more good resources available online. There are the British State Papers Domestic for the Commonwealth for 1652 to 1653. You can actually download the PDF file for this book, which is amazing. Frank Fox had highly recommended this book to me. The first three volumes of The First Dutch War are searchable, online. I wish that the rest were available, but they are held up by the copyright issue. I have previously mentioned that Granville Penn's book about William Penn is available, and that is a good primary source. Now, Corbett's booklet about the Earl of Darmouth's van de Velde drawings from the Navy Records Society can be read online.
