Soon after my Return from Leyden, I was recommended by my good Master Mr Bates, to be Surgeon to the Swallow, Captain Abraham Pannell Commander; with whom I continued three Years and a half, making a Voyage or two into the Levant, and some other Parts.

Does it mean: Captain Abraham Pannell was the commander of a ship named Swallow?

Yes, it does mean tha Abraham Pannell was the commander of a ship name "Swallow", which by the way was suggested in the books to be a slave-trading ship.
