CommentaryDr. Claes Jansz. Wassenaer was a medical doctor and a wine dealer. He was also publisher of an historical series, which was continued by Barent Lampe (of 28400) after his death. On 20 November 1599, Claes Jansz. (van Wassenaer), 26 years old, living in the Haarlemmerspoort in the Nieustadt, was betrothed to Griet Jacobsdr., 24, living on the O.Z. Voorburchwal. The bride stemmed from the distinguished Persijn family (J.Z. Kannegieter, Dr. Nicolaes Jansz. van Wassenaer 1571/2-1529, Jaarboek Amstelodamum 56 (1964), p.74). His daughter Machteltgen van Wassenaer was 19 when she married Jacob Bartholomeus van Ter Heyde, alias Jacob van der Heyde (at whose request INVNO 260, a notarial inventory of Wassenaer's possessions was drawn up a few days before this sale) and a buyer at auction (R 24355). Nicolaes van Wassenaer was buried in the O.K. on 28 September 1629 (ibid. p. 97). Jan Jansz. Wassenaer, who was probably the brother of the late Dr. Claes Jansz. Wassenaer, became one of the directors (supposten) of the Bank van Lening. He was married to Machteltge Jans. His son, named Johannes, who became preacher in Niewendam and later in Buiksloot, married Maria Poppen, born in 1606, the daughter of the wealthy Michael Poppen. The marriage took place on 5 June 1635 (Elias, Vroedschap, p. 287). For the inventory of Nicolaes van Wassenaer's movable goods, taken before the sale, see INVNO 260, R 177 of Montias1.
