CommentaryAndries Cuijlert, surgeon, and Andries Cuijlert, wine distributor, may possibly be identical. The following betrothals refer to the surgeon. On 24 March 1626, Andries Cuilert, from Hasselt, widower of Geertruy Snellen, living in Zwoll, where the banns were also to be proclaimed, was betrothed to Maritje van Neck, no living parents, assisted by her acquaintance Grietie Thijssen (DTB 670/135). On 30 November 1630, Andries Cuylaert, along with a number of wine dealers and wine distributors, was insinuated. He was living at the time near the Niselsluijs (NA 910, film 1146, Not. Eyloff). On 26 October 1632, Andries Keijlert, widower of Marrij Claes van Neck, living in Zwolle, surgeon, was betrothed to Margriet Hoekemans van Toornhout, widow of Hans Marijn, living behind the O.K. (DTB 672/156). Hans Marijn, like Keijlert, was a wine distributor, which makes it less improbable that the surgeon became a wine dealer himself. The following documents surely refer to wine dealer (and possibly former surgeon). On 1 August 1634, a few months after the present transfer of household goods in lieu of house rents took place, Andries Keijlert married Maria Boelis, the daughter of the procureur Hendrick Boelisz., whom he named to represent him in his absence on 1 August 1634, a few months after the present transfer took place (NA 991, fol. 38, Not. J. Bosch). On 18 November 1634, Willemtje Jans, 57, the former servant maid of the late Hendrick Boelens, procuror, declared at the request of Andries Boelens that she had heard the producent (Andries Boelens), who was going to Copenhague, that he was owed a certain sum of money by Andries Kuylaert and that he did not know how he would obtain payment (NA 843, fol. 773). Andries Cuijlaert, wine distributor, born about 1598, lived first near the Papenbrug, later on the Egelantiersgracht (De Navorscher 93(1952), p.22)). On [...] February 1638, two witnesses whose names were left blank, testified at the request of Jean Sauvage, that they had met Andries Coelaers on February 13 last talking to the requirant (Sauvage) by the beurse (the stock market). Coelaers (Cuilaert) had asked whether he (Sauvage) would take some wines for which his master Juriaen Huijbertsz. (the wine dealer cited in R 178 of Montias 1) had made a bid. Sauvage answered that he would not. Whereupon they parted (NA 952, Not. B. Baddel). On 20 November 1638, Cuylaert transferred to Jan van Baerle II of R 20427 an obligation with a face value of 947 f. issued by Laurens Gillisz. in Bergen in Norway (NA 1498, Not. Oly). Cuylaert is known to have had two sons and a daughter. The painter Pieter Cuylaert, born about 1627, lived at first on the Rozengracht, later on the Elandsgracht. He married Margreta ter Burgh, born in Amsterdam about 1640, on 1 September 1663. He was buried in the N.K. on 21 November 1671. Like his father, he had money troubles. A first inventory was taken of his movable goods in the wake of his arrest for a debt of 274 f. on 18 June 1668 (INVNO 1331). A second inventory was taken after he became insolvent again (owing to a debt for house rent!) on 26 February 1672 (Bredius, K√ľnstler-inventare vol. 3, p.943). Andries's second son was Hendrick Andriesse Cuijlaert. On 7 February 1658, Hendrick Andriesse Cuylaert, from Amsterdam, 26, broker, assisted by his aunt Grietie Roelofs, living on the Blomgracht, was betrothed to Maria Hendricx, 22, no living parents, living on the Princengracht (DTB 684/13). Hendrick Andriessen was admitted as a broker in 1650. The daughter of Andries Cuylaert, named Christina Kuylaert, born in 1642/43, married Johannes Westerhout, diamond polisher, on 2 August 1671 (De Navorscher, loc. cit.) Nanning Cornelisz. II, cited in the INTRO, may be identical with the individual of that name, who sometimes used the last name Neutecooper, was the brother-in-law of Hans Mathijsz. Snoeck (see the NOTES to R 21311 and 32516 of Montias2).
