Golden Phoenix was captured dutch prize. She was taken from the dutch in 1665 along with another ship called the slothany. Her original name was 'Gouden Feniks' After 1668 she was owned by Captain William Wildy and others and called just Phoenix. not sure what happened to her after that but Wildy commissioned another smaller ship to be built in 1670 and it was named Phoenix too but it sank at Scilly in 1680.
