Buyer FamilyMessu (Metsu or Metzue)
Buyer NotesThe buyer may be Philips (I) or Jerson. Philips Metsu (I), the son of Jacques Metsu I, was a prominent sugar refiner, born about 1574 in Belle, Flanders. He married Catharina Merchijs in 1600 and became a citizen of Amsterdam in 1601. On 23 April 1604, as widower of Catharina Merchijs, he was betrothed to Edel Schellinger Cornelisdr., the widow of Gerard Rendorp. Edel was the daughter of Cornelis Schellinger de oude of R 20235. Philips Metsu was assisted by his brother Jerson and his brother-in-law Andries Ryckaert (I) (the husband of Catharina's sister Susanna) (DTB 411/203). He invested 3,600 f. in the first subscription for V.O.C. shares (Van Dillen, Het oudste aandeelhoudersregister, p. 175). In 1631, Philips Messu, living on the Heeregracht, paid a tax of 300 f. (Kohier, fol. 306vo, p. 70). He was said to be 73 years old in a declaration of 24 March 1648 (Van Dillen, ibid.) He was distantly related (through his grandfather) with Gabriel Metsu, who was his next-door neighbor (letter from Adriaan Waiboer). Cathalijntge Metsu(e), the daughter of Philips Metsu(e) I and Catharina Merchijs, married Abraham de Schilder (of R 20401) on 9 December 1619. In 1598, Jerson Metsu married Adriana van den Eijnde, the daughter of Hans van den Eijnde de oude, born about 1578. In a deposition dated 12 June 1635, Jerson Metsu declared that he was 65 (born about 1570) (NA 695A, film 4981, Not. J. Warnaerts).
