CommentaryThe presence as a witness of Isaacq Dorta, who was probably a Portuguese Jew, and the Jewish name of Francois's wife Rachel Mendiz, suggest that this was perhaps one of the few religiously mixed marriages in Amsterdam (unless Jacob Francois was himself Jewish). Jacob Francois was in jail, probably for debts.
