The Amsterdam ship Haerlem in 1631

Yesterday, I received the first few pictures from an Amsterdam ship list dating from 1631. One of the ships was the Haerlem, said to be a vessel of 225 lasts. I did a calculation and the ship could be one of those with dimensions 125ft x 31ft x 12ft x 7ft, which eventually carried 40 guns. In 1631, the Haerlem carried 2-bronze 24pdr, 4-short bronze chambered 18pdr, 2-bronze 12pdr, 14-iron 12pdr, 6-iron 5pdr, and 8-steenstukken. The Haerlem had a crew of 106 men and was commended by Commandeur Hendrick Cleuter. The page is annotated with 4 July 1631.
