Buyer NotesIt is not clear whether the clerk recording this and other purchases of other works with the name of the buyer Hillebrant den Otter meant to distinguish it from Hillebrant Pietersz. Otter of R 28004, R 28512 etc.. This conjecture seems more likely than not, and it is assumed here that the buyer was Hillebrant Florisz. den Otter (1567-1643), the son of Floris Dircksz. den Otter (1530-Hamburg 1590) and the brother of Claes den Otter, the underbidder at R 28642. Hillebrant Florisz. married Ermgaard Stuyver (Haarlem 1566-1616), the sister of Baertge den Otter, who married Jan Stuyver of R 30120. Hillebrant den Otter was a rich merchant who freighted many ships in the period 1590-1610. He paid of tax of 500 f. in 1631, at which time he lived on the Singel (Kohier, fol. 11, p.4). On 22 November 1632, Hillebrant den Otter, lord of Vryenes, assisted his niece Magdalena den Otter when she drew up a procuration naming the attorney Hugo van Groenewegen to represent her before the Court of Amsterdam (NA 843, fol. 776, Not. Hoogeboom). On the next day, three witnesses reported having seen a large painting dragged out of the house of Hillebrant den Otter (ibid. fol. 780). Hillebrant Florisz.'s daughter Antoinetta (or Theuntge) married the painter Frederick Vroom (son of Hendrick Vroom) on 23 November 1636. After her death he remarried with Elisabeth van der Nun (1651). When Frederick died in 1667, the house den Otter on the Boomsloot was still in his possession, along with a portrait of Hillebrant den Otter. The house had been used by actors to store their costumes (Bredius, K√ľnstler-inventare, pp. 649, 654). In his testament of 15 November 1636, Hillebrant den Otter mentioned two daughters: Magdalena den Otter van Ravensburgh and Lucia den Otter van Ravensburgh (Oud Holland 11(1893), p.95)
