Text source

A captain Forbes came to Roskilde with fifty men and informed Niels Trolle, lensmand of Roskilde, that a Dutch convoy had just arrived at Elsinore. His men were garrisoned at Elsinore, and at Christianshavn in July 1645, when he recruited new soldiers. He appears to have been attached to the navy.
