Hello, I am interested in this Peter Fountain and was he in Cuba?

Peter Fountaine was apparently a French Huguenot refugee. He is mentioned in the Calendar of State Papers Domestic [William & Mary]
- March 1692 the yearly sum of 80l. to Peter Fountaine, a French sea officer and refugee who served as a volunteer in the Navy in 1691
and again in 1694:
- 28 June 1694 Mr. Peter Fountaine is to be ordered to go on board such ship as Lord Berkeley shall think fit.
