Privateers and Pirates
- Willem Blois van Treslong
- Maarten Harpertszoon Tromp
- Cornelis Tromp
- Dirck Simonszoon van Uitgeest
- In 1628 Uitgeest commanded a fleet of 12 ships on a privateering commission of the Dutch West Indies Company to Brazil. When he returned with his fleet in April of 1629 it was with a very good result: he had captured more than 12 Spanish and Portuguese ships during his voyages. One of the ships under his command was the Ter Veere. The Captain of this ship was Jacob Hendrikzoon Lucifer, the son of Hendrik Jacobszoon Lucifer.
