Buyer NotesExtensive biographical data about Hans van Loon, his family, and his circle are contained in the notes he wrote for the better part of his long life. These were published in Nederlandsche Leeuw, 1917, pp. 15 and foll., 55 and foll., and 69 and foll. He was born in 's Hertogenbosch about 1577, spent some time in Rotterdam and Haarlem before settling in Amsterdam and died in 1658 (Gelderblom, Prosopographic Data Base and Zuid-Nederlandse kooplieden, p. 307). He married Anna Ruyckhavers, daughter of Marten Ruyckhaver (or Ruychaver) and Alit van der Laan, in Haarlem on 27 May 1597. His first two children, Gertruyd and Nicolaes, were born in Rotterdam. On 7 June 1604, the couple had their son Willem baptized in Amsterdam. The witnesses were Adriaen Spierinck (Hans's swager), Marie Gerrits van Dijck (his sister-in-law), and Alit Foreest, wife of the receiver general Foreest in Alkmaar. Hans Willemsz. van Loon invested 2,900 f. in the first subscription for V.O.C. shares of 1602 issued by the Enkhuizen Kamer of the V.O.C. (unpublished information supplied by Roelof van Gelder). He was a merchant associated with Andries Rijckaert (I ?) and, at times, with Pieter Bas (the father of Claes Bas of R 23906), Gerard van Schoonhoven (of R 31988), and Hillebrant den Otter (R 28004). He was a co-founder of the Compagnie van Assurantie. In a document of 26 May 1599, Hans Willemsz., living on the Zeedijck, refused to honor a letter of exchange submitted by Antony Gaillart (I) (of INVNO 662) (Winkelman, Bronnen voor de geschiedenis van de Nederlandse Oostzeehandel, R.G.P. 178(1981), p. 456.) That this was Hans Willemsz. van Loon is confirmed by his purchase of lots for 1 f. 16 st. in the Haarlem lottery of 1606 when he was said to be living on the Zeedijck in de Raap (GAA, 85/22 F 641). Later he lived on the Keisersgracht where he conducted his business. On 17 October 1619, Hans van Loon and Anna Reuchavers had their child Lieven baptized in the presence of Jan van Dalen and Marij Gerrits (DTB 5/297). Jan van Dalen, a stone (or brick) dealer who delivered stone in Leeuwarden, was married to Charlotte [...] (NA 889, 9 June 1636). On 5 December 1618, Jan van Daele was summoned along with many other stone dealers and stone carvers by the master of the tax on coarse or bulk wares regarding his stock (NA 381, fol. 542 and foll.) Both Jan van Dalen and Hans van Loon signed the Remonstrant petition of 1628. In 1623, Hans van Loon and his wife Anna Ruyckhaver were portrayed by Cornelis van der Voort. She was 43 years old at the time. In 1631, Hans van Loon paid a tax of 575 f., at which time he lived on the Keysersgracht (Kohier, fol. 295, p. 67). On 31 May 1620, Hans van Loon appeared before the Orphan Chamber in a dispute over goods left by Albert Symonsz. Jonckheijn (WK 5073/889). Hans van Loon's sister Johanna married Joost Hessels. Their daughter Cornelia Hessels married Gothard or Godert Kerckering of R 21249 (Elias, Vroedschap, p. 381.) He seems to have been the uncle by marriage of Marie van Offenberch, who married Dr. Robbert van der Hoeve of R 24408. On 17 April 1637, Pieter van Loon (1607-1679), another son of Hans van Loon, and his wife Anna van Foreest (daughter of Nanningh Foreest) had their son Nanningh baptized in the Remonstrant Church (DTB 301) (see also, Elias, Vroedschap, p. 443). Hans Willemsz. van Loon must not be confused with Hans Willemsz. (van) Elbinck of INVNO 516, who was a grain dealer.
