According to Biographica Navalis, Vol 2, page 245 (I can't link to it, but it's on archive dot org), Dilkes also commanded the Restoration and the Bredah in the 1690's

Sorry, due to a spate of spam I have had to reinstate the Captcha. I know it's a pain and will update to a better solution soon.
You only have to pass this once per session though, once passed you will not see it again for a while.
