Buyer NotesThe retail silk dealer (sijdewinkelier) Simon Englebrecht was a director of the Amsterdam Schouwburg from 1637/38 to 1642/44 (Jaarboek Amstelodamum 72(1980), p. 41). On 31 December 1631, Sijmon Engelbrecht, from Aachen, 25 years old, assisted by his father Casper Engelbrecht, living on the Keysersgracht, was betrothed to Aaltje Schabank, from Aecken, 29 (DTB 438/183). On 29 July 1642, Sijmon Engelbrecht and Aldegonda Schabank had their daughter Maria baptized in the N.K. in the presence of Catarijna Bijsemans (DTB 42/316). On 2 February 1648, the couple had a child baptized in the presence of Hendrik Bitter, Gertruijten Blanchetse, and Susanna Engelbrechts in the N.Z. Kapell (DTB 65/44). In 1637, Simon Engelbrecht was one of the actors (speelers) of the Academie, i.e. the Schouwburg (Wagenaar, Amsterdam, vol. 2, p. 398). The address above corresponds to this occupation. On 2 November 1638 Symon Engelbrecht was one of about 100 creditors who signed an agreement for the reduction of the debts of Jeronimus and David Heesters (cited in the NOTES to R 28923 and R 7706 resp.) (DBK 5072/872). On 19 July 1644, the honorable Coenraed Heusch and Symon Engelbrecht, merchants, acknowledged, for themselves and for their heirs, having received out of the hands of Francisco Beze, doctor in medicine, and Calman Abrahamsz., German Jews, various pearls, brooches, and other jewels (the total value of which came to f. 54,850, including a brooch estimated 40,000 f.) These jewels were to be kept for safe-keeping and as collateral for a loan of 22,500 f. that they had extended to Doctor Beze and Abrahamsz. (NA 1600, fol. 18-19, Not. W. Hasen).
