Hi there!

David Marley in his "Wars of the Americas - A Chronology" gives the following account of the allied fleet in the Caribbean 1697 sent against Pointis:

Five days after Pointis left Cartagena, he's fleet of 10 warships and 2 auxiliaries is sighted by the Anglo-Dutch fleet under VA John Neville's command, sent to the West Indies against Pointis expedition. After joining with Commodore George Mees's squadron (flag on 'Breda' 62) and 8 Dutch ships under Commodore Hoogenhoeck at Barbados on April 27, Neville's fleet has sailed as far West as Jamaica searching for the French.
The allied fleet totals almost 30 sail, among them Neville's flagship 'Cambridge', 'Monmouth' 66, 'Rupert' 64, 'Pembroke' 60 (capt. James Studley, later John Litcott), 'Sunderland' 60 (capt. Roger Bellwood), 'Trident' 54, 'Newcastle' 52, 'Colchester' 50, 'Lincoln' 50 (capt. Nicholas Dyer), 'Warwick' 50 (capt. Anthony Tollet), 'Bristol' 48 (capt. Stephen Elliott) and the hired ships 'Princess Anne' (capt. William Wakelin), 'Gosport' and 'Virgin'; as well as Hoogenhoeck's 'Hollandia' 72, 4 fireships and the bomb ketch 'Lightning'.
