Subject: Dutch east indies actions 1830-31

Looking for any detailed information on naval actions during the 1830-31 fighting re: Belgian independence/revolution, but not concerned with European theater. What happened in the Dutch East Indies in these years, especially all information on naval actions. My ancestor served as an enlisted hand on the Dutch corvette Zr. Ms. Heldin and returned a rich man to his home in Germany. The fortune he acquired as a non-officer necessitated the Heldin having shared in rich captures during those years, his share would have been small, but nonetheless his fortune was made, as he migrated to America and became a successful businessman thereafter. But what actions, what prize captures, did the Heldin enjoy during those years? Very hard to come by knowledge of this conflict, especially the East Indies happenings.
