CommentaryPetrus Pulleus was predikant in Amstelveen in 1608. He was named predikant in Amsterdam on 25 May 1626. He was married to Aeltge Ymes (of R 23786 of Montias2) who survived him. He died in August 1629. Lourens de Groot (or de Groote), one of the two guardians of Pulleus's children, was a wealthy merchant who invested 9000 f. in V.O.C. shares. Born in Antwerp circa 1563, he first settled in Middelburg, then in Amsterdam, where he was still living when he married Johanna Le Maire (betrothal, 2 January 1597. He was 33, she 20. She was assisted by her mother Susanna le Maire and her stepfather Jaques de Willem. His nephew, named Pieter van Pulle, must be related to the predicant Petrus Pulleus. Hendrick Laurensz. or Laurentius (1588-1649), the second guardian, was a well-known publisher and printer, the brother of the predikant Jacobus Laurentius who bought at the present auction (R 23781). The portraits of Salomon le Maire, Pieter le Maire, and Susanneken le Maire were recorded in the estate of Johannes le Maire of INVNO 1170. On 1 November 1609 Petrus Pelleus married Grietge Tijmes (1589-1629) and, after her death, Grietge Claes Visscher (1590-1645), the daughter of the printmaker Claes Jansz. Visscher (Dudok van Heel in Jaarboek Amstelodamum 80(1988), p. 33). Visscher Laurentius was portrayed by J. Backer as Lieutenant in the company of Cornelis de Graaff in 1642.
