The list of the crew for the ship Faem

One of the documents that I just received is a list of the crew, including sailors, soldiers, and boys (jongens) for the Amsterdam Directors' ship Faem, commanded by Jacob Cornelisz Swart. There were 89 sailors, 29 soldiers, and 6 boys. The soldiers were a particularly diverse lot: one from St. Malo, one from Finland, one from Hannover, one from Danzig, as well as men from more pedestrian places, such as serveral from Swol (Zwolle).
