Maarten Schaeff's ship Engel

By 27 March 1653, Maarten Schaeff's ship Engel had been paid off. Sadly, the list I just received doesn't have dimensions, but it does had a gun list and crew figures. The Engel was primarily armed with 8pdr and 4pdr guns, with a couple of 12pdr and 3pdr guns, in addition. The crew consisted of 100 men and 20 musketeers. I was interested by the terminology in this list, as they are usually called "landsoldaten" (land soldiers).
