CommentaryOn 28 January 1595, Joost Brest de jonghe (II), coopgesell (merchant's employee), 18 years old, appeared and testified at the request of Raphael le Febur that he had spent four years in the Canary islands and that he was there at the time that Hans Hansz. van Vlissinghe, skipper of the Roode Leeuw, arrived in the Canary Islands with his ship and was immediately imprisoned by the Inquisition, which proceeded to confiscate and sell the ship's cargo. Joost Brest de oude (I) signed the deposition as a witness (NA 47, Not. Heylinc, cited in Maandblad Amstelodamum 39(52), p. 68). On 26 December 1610, Joost Brest (II) and Bijateris Velge had their son Maliaert baptized in the O.K. in the presence of Tanneken Brest and Maliaert de Mel (DTB 4/337). Maliaert Brest is probably identical with Meynard Brest cited below. Maliaert de Mel was most probably related to Anthony de Mel of R 20549 whose daughter Sara's baptism was witnessed by Margriet Brest in 1605. Joost Brest II was in business with Anthony Bourmans and Andries Graeuw I according to the post-mortem accounting of Graeuw's assets of January 1617 (dated 15 May 1626, WK 5073/1192, and INVNO 682). Joost Brest de jonghe paid a tax of 50 f., at which time he lived on the West side of the Keisersgracht (Kohier, fol. 300vo, p. 69). On or about 5 December 1633 (date illegible to fire damage), in a letter (?) addressed to Joost Brest or to whom it might concern, an unnamed person stated that he had insured a shipment of perishable wine on a ship laden for Rotterdam, which had been forced to land in Dunkerk due to a storm. Brest was apparently responsible for the policy (NA 947, Not. B. Baddel). On 12 May 1634, Jan van Ystenhout from Middelburg tried to collect money from a letter of exchange issued by Joost Brest (NA 771, Not. Verhey). On 11 September 1635, Joost Brest, 57, and Nicolaes Stracht, 44, made a deposition at the request of Neeltge Croonen. They declared that they had been at the house of Neeltge last Sunday and stood before the bed of her husband Hendrick Anthonisz. He apparently confessed that he had brought a child into the world in an episode of drunkenness (NA 772, Not. Verhey). Neeltge Cornelis Croonen, born in Middelburg in 1577, married Arent Bouwers Spijcker in December 1600. She remarried with Jan Jansz. glass engraver of R 31132 of Montias2 on 27 January 1613, Finally, she married once again with Hendrick Anthonisz. de Vries (cited in the above deposition) on 8 March 1622 (Elias, Vroedschap, p. 154). Joost Brest died between 28 February 1636, when he was named as an arbiter in a dispute concerning the inheritance of the estate left by Marten Hooffman, and 18 June 1636, when he was replaced as arbiter in consequence of his death (NA 695A, omslag 73, fol.420, Not. J. Warnaerts). On 7 March 1639, Jean Legouche (cited in the TEXT of R 160) had a notary notify Sr. Maljaert (Meynaert) Brest (cited in the NOTES to R 3120 of Montias2) and the widow of Joost Brest that payment was due on a letter of exchange that the late Joost Brest had issued in Rome (NA 1498, film 1572, Not. J. Oly).
