BuyerArtus de klockspelder
Buyer FamilyGeerdincx, Artus (de klockspelder)
Buyer NotesThe buyer, Artus Geerdincx, was clock player in the Oude Kerck in Amsterdam (Oud Holland, 3(1885), p. 47). On 3 October 1598, Artus Geerdingh, from Antwerp, beyerman deser stede (bell ringer of this city), 31 years old, living in the O.Z. Kerckhoff, assisted by Franssen Felbier (I), was betrothed to Anneken Coesters, from Antwerp, 29, assisted by her nephews Pieter Koster and Daniel Mostart (DTB 408/396). Daniel Mostart, the witness, was the father of Daniel Mostart II of R 21940. Francois Fellebier (I) was a silk cloth dealer of Antwerp origin (NA 563A, 2 June 1634 and Gelderblom, Zuid-Nederlandse kooplieden, p. 300). He died before 16 October 1637 when his widow Dorothea Pieters, mother of 8 children, whose father was Frans Felbier, appeared before the Orphan Chamber (WK 5073/789, fol. 250). Francois Felbier I paid a tax of 5 f. in 1631, at which time he was living on the Cingel (Kohier fol. 12vo, p.5). The following documents presumably refer to Francois Felbier II, the son of Francois Felbier I, who apparently owed Molenaer for paintings delivered. On 20 November 1641, Johannes (Miense) Molenaer had a notary notify Franchoys Felbier of the following facts: On the 19th of the month he had requested and received from the aldermen an order impounding a shipment of goods that Felbier had received from Moscovy and had them deposited in a neutral warehouse, of which the notary had the key. On the 26 of November, Molenaer insinuated Felbier again, claiming that Felbier had had the goods removed in secret and that he wanted to know where they were. Felbier's sister answered that Francois Felbier was still a minor and could not do business without the consent of his mother. She claimed that Molenaer had shamefully cheated him (her brother). The goods, which belonged to her mother, had been brought to a neutral place on the Achterburgwal near the Gasthuismolenbrug (Obreen's Archief voor de Nederlandsche kunstgeschiedenis 7(1888-1890), p.291). Francoys Felbier I was also the father of Joost Fellebier (II), who was 22 years old when he was betrothed to Annetie Visschers, the daughter of the print-maker Claes Jansz. Visscher, on 31 August 1646 (Oud Holland 4(1886), p. 223). On 15 June 1600, Artus Garding and Tanneken Costers had their son Harmen (of R 33623) baptized in the O.K. in the presence of Sytgen Matheus (DTB 3/237). On 28 February 1608, Artus Geerdinck and Anneken Geerdinck had their son baptized in the N.K. in the presence of Daniel Bueckelaer, Hans Vorsten, and Anneken Felbiers (DTB 4/232). Hans Vorsten was the father of Daniel Vorsten of R 32387. Annetje, the widow of Art Gerdijnck, was buried on 26 September 1630 (DTB 1045/28). She was the full niece of Antony Nijs (1544-1626) and was thus related to the latter's son Anthony Nijs II of R 7616. The identically named Artus Geerdinx (1640-1692), son of Herman Geerdinx of R 33623, carillon player and clavecin-maker, was a merchant and collector of naturalia. Artus Geerdincks I was also the father of Herman Geerdincks of R 33623 (I. van Eeghen Het geslacht Nijs ... Jaarboek Amstelodamum 60 (1968), p. 97.)
