Arie Vlieland taken hostage


ROTTERDAM den 30 -Maart.1808 Gister nacht zyn, op het oogenblik dat zy naar Engeland wilden overfteken , door de waakzaamheid van den Officier dezer Stad, en ten gevolge van de strenge maatregelen tegen alle communicatie met Engeland, te Maaslandsluis, de volgende zes Personen met hunne goederen gearresteerd: de Heeren Boisster, C. Rency, J. Sleavin, J. Rigter, . ¦ Fril, en zekere Arie Vlieland, Schipper van het Vaartuig, mei het welk zy voornemens waren de reis te doen; zy zyn reeds naar den Haag in Gyzeling gebragt, alwaar hunne zaak verder zal worden onder-zocht. 

Rotterdam 30th March 1808 
last night when they wanted to sail to England , Due to an alert Officer of this town and due to the restricted rules  against all communications with England .The following  6 persons  Boisster, C. Rency, J. Sleavin, J. Rigter, . ¦ Fril,were arrested and a Arie Vlieland master of the vessel .
They have been taken to the Hague were their case will be researched .

The name is written different .We guess that this family had a speech defect .
the pronounciation of Vlieland with a cleft lip sounds like Freland.
In all their official papers the VL is written as a FR  so it must have sounded like that.

More about the ships of his father Jeroen Vlieland  who sailed for many  years from Rotterdam to  to Topsham


Then one day in 1808 Napoleon declared new laws. Trade between Holland and England was over that day.It was effective immediately.


Maybe Arie did not know or did not think it was much of it .He intended to bring some people to England.Which he done before.
But this time everybody was captured and send to The Hague .
In the archives we find the petions of Arie , Anthony Frisch owner of the vessel and John le Vasseur and John Sleaven who made the agreements of transporting people and goods.
It is -so far - the only courtcase i have found .

So what happened to Hendrik after this adventure .
We know he lost both his sons .
Aldert during the attack of HMS Harpy on an other ship sailed by Hendrik De Jonge Elizabeth  .This ship was captured sailing from Rotterdam to Havre le Grace in France .
Could this be the story of the captain and the drowning
Cornelis the other son died at the age of 16.
Hendrik  himself died in Noordwijk in 1821 .
We tried to find out more about his ship and detention .And asked the National Archives.in England.


Many thanks for your enquiry relating to HCA 32/1351/111. There is a research guidethat explains in more detail some of the processes of the High Court of Admiralty in relation to prize cases. HCA 32 relates to the prize papers themselves. If a verdict of condemnation of prize was reached, then the ship and its contents would be sold into private hands, for which The National Archives is unlikely to hold records. It is possible that the crew were held as prisoners of war, for which we have anotherresearch guide, but in all likelihood the sailors themselves were released from their contracted service on board the vessel and sought employment elsewhere. There are some naval correspondence files, especially in series ADM 1 which in turn is indexed in series ADM 12; these may contain further information but it is unlikely, and any search is likely to be time-consuming since the records are not available online.  It might be worth trying the National Maritime Museum for further advice, as they tend to hold more material for mercantile shipping although there are other archivesavailable as well.



We received this answer but so far no luck
We looked in the Dutch archive and looking for surname Vlieland we found an other brother Cornelis who is missing after the the raid in Ostend in 1798 .
The British expedition to Ostend on 18 May 1798 was launched to destroy gun-boats harboured in Ostend and destined to take part in the planned invasion of Britain, and to destroy the infrastructure of the port including the locks, basin-gates, and sluices of the Bruges-Ostend Canal. It was a combined Royal Navy and British Army expedition under the command of Captain Home Popham (R.N.) and Major-General Eyre Coote. The British destroyed their objectives, but the army contingent was captured by the French.
As Coote held the Dover army command, a he was appointed to command the troops employed in the expedition which had been planned by Sir Home Popham to cut the sluices at Ostend, and thus flood that part of the Netherlands which was then in the possession of the French. The troops were only 1,300 in number, and were successfully disembarked and cut the sluices as proposed on 18 May.[1] The lock-gates of the Bruges-Ostend Canal were also destroyed, which made canal navigation between Holland, Flanders, and France impossible.[2] This meant that any movement of barges had to be by sea leaving them vulnerable to attack by the Royal Navy.

A high wind off the land then sprang up, and the ships could not come in to take the troops off. French troops were hurried up, and the small English force was completely hemmed in, and after a desperate resistance, in which he lost six officers and 109 men killed and wounded, Coote, who was himself severely wounded, was forced to surrender (although he was shortly back in command at Dover after a prisoner exchange).[1]

And if you wondering what all those people and ships have to do with Jerome Vlieland ......
We are sure there is a connection and one day that will be crystal clear thanks to all this information..
