Postscript: Aldus geinventariseert inden sterfhuijs van den voors.

CommentaryEmanuel van Basserode was the son of Pieter van Basserode. He was apparently born in Anwerp between 1553 and 1556 (Gelderblom, Prosopographic Data Base and Zuid-Nederlandse kooplieden, p. 294). The family was Lutheran. On 13 June 1596, Emanuel van Baserode, merchant in Amsterdam, and Clara van Baserode (his sister ?) drew up a procuration to collect money due to them in Koningsberg (in East Prussia) (Winkelman, Bronnen voor de geschiedenis van het Oostzeehandel, R.G.P. 178(1981), p. 403). In 1608, he signed a petition to the burgomasters of Amsterdam, along with a number of other merchants, requesting the revocation of the prohibition to use cashiers to effect money transfers (Van Dillen, Wisselbanken, R.G.P, 59(1925), p. 16). On 24 June 1619, Emanuel van Basserode sold a warehouse on the Heeregracht to Jan Macare, wool merchant (the brother of Abraham Macare of INVNO 549). The house was located behind Basserode's own house, called De Appelboom. The store house and Basserode's house were situated outside the Gasthuysmolenpoort on the N.Z Achterburchwal (Jaarboek Amstelodamum, 21(1923), p. 143.) He apparently lived in his house de Appelboom until the end of his life. He also owned a house on the Nieuwe Houtmarkct on Vlooienburg from 1625 until his death in 1637. He had bought the house on 21 January 1626 from Jan Jochemsz. Pol, carpenter (later lumber dealer), for 6,000 f. (I. van Eeghen, Waar woonde Rembrandt in zijn eerste jaren? Maandblad Amstelodamum 46(1959), p. 153). This house and sugar refinery was rented by Rembrandt from May 1637 to May 1639 when he bought his house on the Breestraet (Van Dillen, Bronnen tot de geschiedenis van het bedrijfsleven, R.G.P. 78(1933) p. 590 and S.A.C. Dudok van Heel, Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669): een veranderd schildersportrait in Christopher Brown et al. Rembrandt de Meester en zijn werkplaats, Exh. Cat. Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, 1991, pp. 56-7). ). On 27 January 1624, Emanuel van Baseroode (signs), from Antwerp, widower of Sara (van) Seroij, living on the Coningsgracht, was betrothed to Janneken Willems, widow of Henricus Meijssenius (one year), assisted by her guardian Cornelius van Coeschot de oude (DTB 669/224). (Thus Janneken Willems was his second and not his first wife as per the INTRO). On 29 December 1626, Emanuel van Basserode had his daughter Anna baptized in the Lutheran Church in the presence of Gerardt Verpoorten (of R 27491) and of juffr. Badsans (DTB 139/202). Anna, born 27 February 1626 (but only baptized on 29 December of that year?), married Francois de Coster III (1625-1653), son of Francois de Coster II and grandson of Francois de Coster I of R 29540, on 17 November 1648. After De Coster's death on 23 October 1652, she remarried with Antonie van Beaumont on 24 May 1661. Antoni van Beaumont was an old deacon of the Reformed Church. He got in trouble with the consistory at the time of his marriage with Anna Basserode because Anna was the widow of the brother of his late wife. But, because of his church connections, the objections were soon dropped (Roodenburg, Onder het censuur, p. 312). When she died on 19 September 1669, an inventory of her possessions was taken which included een conterfeijtsel van Rembrandt sijnde een out wijfje as well as paintings by Jan Lievens, Hercules Seghers, and Philips de Koninck (De Navorscher, ibid., Oud Holland 16(1898), p. 7, and Dudok van Heel, op. cit. p. 66). On 16 September 1632, Emanuel van Baserode had his other daughter Clara, baptized) in the Lutheran Church in the presence of Willem van Dalen (of R 33610 of Montias2) (DTB 140/168). She married Johan van Overbeke, on 28 May 1652. Before he left for the East Indies where he lived for a number of years, Van Overbeke translated some psalms and wrote some poetry (De Navorscher, 28(1878), pp. 240-1). On 11 March 1634, an arbitration agreement was reached between Baserode and Jasper Jansz. Ypelaer (cited in the TEXT of R 181) concerning the use of a path and a waterlosing which ran between the house of Substitute Schout Tengnagel (of R 19457 of Montias2) and the house of Marten Codde (of R 21399 of Montias2), belonging to Baserode. The arbiters were Simon van der Does, former alderman, (of R 28462); Cornelis van Campen (of R 31987); and Nicolaes Balestel (of R 36475), together with Hendrick Danckertsz. (of R 27728) and Herman Jansz. (who appeared in a deposition with Hendrick Danckertsz. in the NOTES to R 27728), both rooimeesters. It was agreed that Baserode and Jasper Ypelaer would pay Tengnagel 25 f. and 140 f. respectively, but that Ypelaer would henceforth have unrestricted access to the waterlosing. Ypelaer's house was located on the West side of the Koninxgracht (NA 694B, film 4980, Not. J. Warnaerts). On 9 November 1634, Emanuel van Baserode, merchant, as husband and guardian of Janneke Willems, the heiress of Judith Cornelis, named his cousin Elias Jansz., living in Utrecht, to collect 50 f. from the heirs of Hendrickge Elias (NA 843, fol. 765, Not. Hoogeboom). In March 1653, Francois de Coster gave Rembrandt power-of-attorney to collect debts due to him. Baseroode was a rich man, possessing thousands of gulden worth of schepenkennissen and other securities. He made a bequest in his testament to the diakonen van de Luters kerck. In 1631, he was living between the Cingel and the Warmoesgracht when he paid a tax of 650 f. (Kohier, fol. 7vo, p. 3). Emanuel van Baserode died on 18 November 1636 (De Navorscher, ibid.) On 19 November 1637, Pieter van Montfoort and Willem van Dalen (cited above) appeared before the Orphan Chamber as guardians according to testament of Annetge, 11, Claertge, 2, and Judith, 6 months old, whose late mother was Jannetge Willems, and declared that the children were entitled to various assets, including a house on the Coningsgracht near the Gasthuismolen, named De Appelboom, and a sugar refinery in Vloyenburch, on the north side of the Amstel (WK 5073/789). In an accounting of the estate, made in October 1637, at the request of his widow Jannetje Willems, the sugar refinery was estimated 4,200 f., the house on Vloyenburch, 2,400 f., and the house Den Appel, 12,000 f. (NA 598, fol. 351-377, Not. Lamberti).
