Notes on Officer


Biographical notesref:

DECKER (Pieter Claesse), zeekapitein bij het collegie ter admiraliteit te Amsterdam, voerde het bevel op het fregat Bommel in 1672, en over het tweede smaldeel der schepen onder den admiraal Jacob Lobs, bestemd tot het vrijhouden der Zuiderzee, om Amsterdam en Noord-Holland tegen overval te bewaren. Niet alleen voldeed hij aan dien last, maar verontrustte ook de in de omstreken gelegerde Fransche en Munstersche troepen. Vermoedelijk is hij dezelfde Amsterdamsche kapitein wiens schip Zeelandia, van 64 stukken, bleef op het Goodwinsend bij het binnenzeilen van Duins in 1690.

DECKER (Pieter Claesse), sea captain by the Admiralty Collegie to Amsterdam, the command on the frigate Bommel introduced in 1672, and the second squadron of ships under Admiral Jacob Lobs intended to keep free of the Zuiderzee, to Amsterdam and North Holland to protect against robbery. Not only did he meet that burden, but also troubled the French stationed in the vicinity and Munster troops. Presumably he is the same Amsterdamsche captain whose ship Zeelandia, 64 pieces, kept on Goodwin Send in the inner liner of the Downs in 1690.
