Laurens Degelcamp

The way that Laurens Degelcamp is described in the list dated 28 November 1652 is "Laurens Hermansz". His full name must have been Laurens Hermanszoon Degelcamp. He commanded the ship Groeninger Nicolaes (24 guns). That is the ship that Ron van Maanen calls the "Groeningen Nicholaes". He has the interesting data, which I have annotated further:
