BuyerGerrit Brant
Buyer FamilyBrant, Gerrit (I)
Buyer NotesGerrit Brant (I) was betrothed to Neeltje Jeroens Giijsels on 10 August 1623 (DTB 428/147). He was a signatory of the Remonstrant petition of 1628 and was himself a Remonstrant. He paid a tax of 10 f. in 1631, at which time he lived near the Nadorst steech (Kohier, fol. 232, p. 53). On 9 March 1628, Gerrit Brant and Neel Jeroens had their daughter Cornelia baptized in the N.K. in the presence of Aefjen Jeroens (DTB 6/200). On 8 November 1652, Cornelia Brant, from Amsterdam, 25, assisted by her father Gerrit Brant, living on the Rockin, was betrothed to Jan Steen, from Leyden, broker, widower of Clara Haenecops, living on Egelentiergracht (Oud Holland 4(1886), p.139). This Jan Steen is not identical with the painter of that name. On 16 June 1633, Gerrit Brandt, clockmaker, 39, and Jacob Maire (?), apothecary, 19, made a declaration at the request of Hendrick Schut, likewise clockmaker, about a certain Luijfellen who had come to Schut's house and had kept the clock that he had apparently taken or borrowed (NA 770, film 5191, Not. Verhey). It is probably a coincidence that Hendrick Schut bore the same name as the painter whose bentname was Brootsaeck. On 30 July 1615, the watchmaker Jan Claesz. declared that he had insulted Mr. Henrik Schut, clockmaker, by reason of drunkenness but that he knew nothing but good on Schut's account (Van Dillen, Bronnen tot de geschiedenis van het bedrijfsleven R.P.G. 78(1933), p. 123). On 3 March 1637, Gerrit Brant, horlogie macker (clock maker), 42 years old, made a deposition at the request of Hessel Jansz. Vlasbloem concerning the death of Francoijs Buys in the Vissteech (NA 695B, film 4981, Not. J. Warnaerts). 1642, he was named, along with the poet Jan Vos, director of the Schouwburg (theater) of Amsterdam (Jan Wagenaar, Amsterdam, vol. 3, p. 398). He was the father of the poet and tragedian Geerardt Brandt (initially a clockmaker), who wrote De veynsende Torquatus in 1644 (Oud Holland 7(1889), pp. 94-5) and was also the author of a famous history of the religious troubles of his time. After the death of his first wife, Gerrit Brant I was again betrothed to Maaike Stevens, widow of Joost van den Ende, on 26 October 1645 (DTB 678/134). He was buried on 8 February 1659 (DTB 1068/140). Joost Brant, who was also a clockmaker, may have been Gerrit Brant I's brother (see NA 772, act of 10 July 1635).
