CommentaryThis inventory may be incomplete, since the only paintings noted were found in the bovencamer, but they may of course have been gathered there for purpose of inventarization. An earlier inventory of the estate of Anthony du Plouijs, dyer, had been taken on 6 November 1634, which included all his dyer's equipment. According to this earlier inventory, du Plouijs owned houses, one on the Kloveniersburgwal, one on the Binnen Amstel and one on Huivettersgracht (Van Dillen, Bronnen tot de geschiedenis van het bedrijfsleven, R.G.P., 144(1974), p. 74). On 30 November 1627, Antonij Ploijs and Jannetje de Pau had their son Antonij baptized in the N.K. (DTB 40/426). On 14 August 1629, Antonii du Plochnij (sic) and Janneken de Pau had their daughter Janneken baptized in the N.K. (DTB 41/36). On 7 October 1630, Hans Thijsz. ceded to Anthony Duplowy, blue dyer, various yarn-spinning equipment against a debt he owed him (Van Dillen, op. cit. R.G.P., 78(1933), p. 732). On 26 September 1631, Anthonij Plouij and Janneken de Pauw had a second Jannetie baptized in the O.K. in the presence of Janneken Mathijs DTB 6/348). On 31 December 1635, the eerbare Juffr. Aeltgen Henricx, widow of the heer burgomaster Cromhout, on one side, and Janneken de Paeuw, widow of Anthonij du Plouijs, presently the wife of Cornelis Jacobsz., assisted by the latter, together with Gillis Vertangen (of INVNO 241) and Jacob Jacobsz., likewise Notary Public, solicited during his life time by the above-name Anthony du Plouis and authorized to liquidate his estate, on the other, reached an accord concerning the accounting of the assets and liabilities of the estate. Among the assets, considerable quantities of indigo and cochinella, cotton and linen fabrics, and 8,000 f. in alderman's obligations (schepenkennissen). Abraham van der Sluijs (of R 20029 of Montias2) signed as a witness (NA 412B, fol. 463, Not. Jacob and Nicolaes Jacobsz.) Pieter du Ploijs, cited in the INTRO, was Anthonij du Plouijs's brother. Anthony du Plouijs was presumably related to Gillis du Plouijs of R 20715 of Montias2.
