Journal of Edward Montagu edited by Anderson for 18th February 1665:

"A fine sunshine day, little wind at N and NW, but cold,
This day about noon Colonel Belasis came on board me with a letter from my Lord Belasis with reference to his transportation to Tangier."

from L&M Companion ... John Belasyse, 1st Baron Belasyse (1614 - 1689) has two sons who appear in the diary, principally as duelists
-- Sir Henry, his eldest,
-- and John.

Sir Henry, an Anglican convert, was Captain of foot for the Hull garrison Oct. 1660-1662, and 1665-d. -- from The History of Parliament: the House of Commons 1660-1690,

So this is probably the Capt. Belasis in charge of his father's trip to Tangier.
