Capt. Jonathan SIERS, Master of the sloop Carolina
NOTE:  This may be the same Jonathan SIERS on the Quit-Rent Rolls of Essex Co., East Jersey Province, in 1696, who owned 160 acres of land, yet it seems unlikely to me that a sea-faring man would also be a farmer. 
Subject:  Jonathan SIERS / SEERS / SEARS
Occupation:  1725-30, sea captain, NJ
