Buyer NotesAbraham de Ligne (or Lingne) was a merchant and wine dealer, born in Antwerp, who stayed some time in London before migrating to Amsterdam (Gelderblom, Zuid-Nederlandse kooplieden, p. 306). In 1606, Abraham de Ligne bought lots for 3 f. 12 st. in the Haarlem lottery (GAA, 4/88 F 30). In 1608, Abraham de Lingne joined a number of Amsterdam merchants in a petition to the burgomasters of Amsterdam requesting the revocation of a prohibition on the use of cashiers to effect money transfers (Van Dillen, Wisselbanken, R.G.P. 59(1925), p. 16). On 7 and 18 October 1610, Abraham de Ligne, together with Jacques Nicquet, Marten de Meyer, Gillis Sautijn, Frans Steenhuysen and Cornelis van Forest, along also with Pieter van Geel (of R 31692) and Elias van Geel, without prejudice to the rights of Henrico de Haze (of R 28875), notified the directors of the Chamber of the V.O.C. that Hans Bouwer (of INVNO 537) and Jasper Bouwer had sold them certain shares in the V.O.C. which had not been delivered to them and which they would like to dispose of (Van Dillen in Economisch-historisch Jaarboek 18(1930), p. 109-110). Marten de Meyer was involved with Hans Verbiest in a dispute concerning the setting up of a sugar refinery which they decided to submit to arbitration on 21 March 1612 (Van Dillen, Bronnen tot de geschiedenis van het bedrijfsleven 1933, pp.4-5). Gillis Sautijn (1555-1608) was a merchant in silk cloth, born in Antwerp, who was first noted in Amsterdam in 1591 (Gelderblom, Prosopographic Data Base and Zuid-Nederlandse kooplieden, p. 313). On 1 September 1614, Lucas van Teylingen, bouckhouder van de op- ende uytslach van de wynen, deposed that, on 22 May preceding, a cooper or wijnverlater by the name of Abraham de Lynge had come to the comptoir of the excise tax on wine to ask permission to store some Rhine wine belong to him (Abraham de Lynge) in a certain cellar (Van Dillen, Bronnen tot de geschiedenis van het bedrijfsleven R.G.P. 78(1933), p. 93). The merchant Abraham de Lingne, 58 years old, made a deposition on 11 May 1635 (together with Cornelis Martsz. Pronck of R 32466, Cornelis Gysbrechtsz. van Goor, and Nicolaes Cuysten) concerning deliveries of sulfur (NA 695A, film 4981). He may be identical with the silk and caffa cloth merchant of that name cited in the same year 1636. He was then said to be de oude, presumably because he had a son or nephew of the same name. In this act, dated 15 January 1636, Jean de Ligne (perhaps Abraham's son), 37, declared at the request of Jacques and Guillaume van Hoorne, merchants, that he had joined in a company with Abraham de Ligne de oude in the month of May 1632 to exploit caffa, in which he, the witness, was to be master caffa worker and Abraham de Ligne would supply the capital and the silk to be worked up (Van Dillen, Bronnen tot de geschiedenis van het bedrijfsleven 144(1974), p. 101.) Abraham de Ligne I freighted three ships between 1601 (when he was only 22 years old) and 1608 and 4 ships between 1609 and 1616 (Winkelman, Bronnen voor de geschiedenis van de Nederlandse Oostzeehandel R.G.P. 184(1983), p. 601 and 185(1983), p. 629.) In 1631, Abraham de Ligne, living on the East side of the Keysersgracht, paid a tax of 175 f. (Kohier, fol. 301vo, p. 69). He died before 7 February 1650, when Andries Pels and the spinster Grietie Dircx attempted to collect money due to them from the estate of Abraham de Ligne (NA 181, film 2083, Not. Eggericx). It was probably Abraham de Ligne II who bought paintings at the auction sale organized by the St. Lucas guild of The Hague on 8 April 1647 (Bredius, K√ľnstler-inventare, p. 489).
