The captain of the Faem in March 1653
I have this photograph of a page that says that the captain of the Amsterdam Directors' ship Faem (28 guns), in March 1653, was kapitein Jacob Cornelisz Swart. Most documents just say "Jacob Swart", so you don't know if the man was Jacob Andriesz Swart or Jacob Cornelisz Swart. This definitely says "Jacob Cornelisz Swart".
