stepping stones of maritime history

History

Concordia was wrecked somewhere of the coast of Cuba in 1744.

She was coming from Curacao, Honduras and was headed for Holland. The usual route was past Havana trough the Bahama strait. 

Master: Jan Spoor

Jan van Stralsund was a sailor who came back to Amsterdam.  He testified before a notary to prove that he had sailed on the Concordia. He tried to get his back wages in this way.
