Two very interesting databases have recently been added -
one is the Voyage of Ship Gelderland 1 September 1640 to 12
November 1641 from Texel to Morocco back to Texel
This is the Journal of the Ambassy of the Lord Anthonis de
Liedekerke , translated and transcribed by my good friend
Cor Snabel & Liz Johnson
On the 1st of September 1640, the ship Gelderlandt sailed
from Texel on a diplomatic mission to the King of Morocco.
On board were the Dutch Ambassador Anthonie de Liedekerke,
Lijsbeth Jans with her brother-in-law Jacob Arissen, and
the painter Adriaen Matham.
The 1640-41 diplomatic mission to Morocco was made in order
to renew the Dutch alliance with Morocco, and to effect the
release of some fifty men who had been employed aboard the
ship Erasmus van Rotterdam.
Cor also kindly transcribed the list of Released Prisoners
on the ship Erasmus van Rotterdam 1638 and that is online
