Postscript: Aldus geinventariseert ende beschreven den 26 February 1664 ende getauxeert den 10 Marty daeraenvolgende door Susanneken Anthonis end Weijntje Willems.

CommentaryAt least three men with the name of Cornelis Rengers (Rengersz., Rengerss) are known, all three with a connection with the garment or cloth trade. On 18 April 1609, Cornelis Rengers, hat retail merchant (hoedecramer), 29, living in the Warmoesstraet, assisted by his uncle Hans Vorsten, was betrothed to Gijsbertje Gijsbers, from Dordrecht, living in the Huydevetterstraet, assisted by her mother Pleuntgen Bastiaens (DTB 414/34). He was the father of the following. On 13 August 1638, Cornelis Rengerss, cloth merchant, 26, from Amsterdam, assisted by his father Cornelis Rengersz. de oude, living on the corner of the Oudebruchsteech, was betrothed to Geertruyt Jans, from Amsterdam assisted by Matheus Evertsz. her former guardian, living on the Nieuwe Dijck (DTB 449/257). The most probable owner of the goods in this bankrupt inventory was the following. On 27 April 1656, Cornelis Rengerss, from Amsterdam, cloth merchant, 28, assisted by his mother Hester Bosijns, living in the Gravenstraet, was betrothed to Dorothea Wouters, from Amsterdam, 27, assisted by her mother Cornelia Jacobs, living on the Heeregracht (DTB 476/22). Hester Bosijns was probably the daughter of Abraham Bosijn (of R 38605) and of Hester Cleuteringh. The name Sara given to a daughter of Cornelis Rengerss and Dorothea Wouters also supports the hypothesis that Hester Bosijns was the daughter of Abraham Bosijn, whose mother was named Sara Keyser. Sara Bosijns, cited below, was probably Abraham Bosijn's sister. On 20 March 1657, Cornelis Ozeas Rengerss and Dorothe Wouters had their son Oseas baptized in the N.K. in the presence of Hester Bosijns. On 17 September 1658, Cornelis Rengersz. and Dorothea Wouters had their daughter Sara baptized in the presence of Gerrit Cornelisz. and Sara Bosijns (DTB 43/392). On 16 November 1646, Cornelis Rengers, cloth merchant, who is likely to be identical with the faillit owner of the goods in the present inventory, lodged an insinuation against Willem Sicx (of R 25271 of Montias2), claiming that some French cloth that he had given him to dye had come back damaged (see the NOTES to R 25271). On 11 September 1650, Cornelis Rengers witnessed the baptism of Jacob, son of Jacob Aertsz. Colom (of R 33555) and Sara Rengers (who may have been Cornelis's sister) (DTB 8/285).
