l ´esperance

In the newspaper we can read that the ship of Jeroen Vlieland which we assume is the stepfather of Jerome Nicholas Vlieland is for sale.
In the add you find that Nicolaas Montauban van Swijndregt the well sailed ship last sailed by Jeroen Vlieland offers for auction in 1811.
width 40 x 19 feet with all anchors , mast , ropes a.s.o.
In 1804 the ship was captured as a Prize.
We find in the newspaper (green marker )in England in 1804 the auction of the
L´esperance as prize.
In 1811 we find in the Rotterdam newspaper.
Also sold by Nicolaus Montauban van Swijndregt a ship sailed by Jeroen Vlieland L'Esperance
Click on the photo and it will enlarge.

Francois van Swijndregt, commissionair of waterlaws, married in 1748 Elysabeth Montauban. Their son Nicolaas combined the names van of his parents and was named as Montauban van Swijndregt. He was a broker , In 1787 he was banned because of his connections with the Patriotic party , but in 1795 he got amnesty.
So in 7 years Jeroen or Yarhan as he is called at the wedding of his (step)son John and at the death of his wife was sailing between England and Holland.
