IntroductionDen 9e januarij 1635 sijn de naergelaten goederen van Symen Thonisz. ende Anne Jans zal. vercocht.
CommentarySymen Thonisz. may possibly be identical with the buyer named Symon Theunissen, afsetter (illuminator of maps or prints), who bought a travel coffer at the sale of Pieter Mercijs (INVNO 578) on 13 February 1625. He may also be identical with the same (?) individual who bought many lots at the sale of the sculptor Cornelis van der Block (INVNO 631) on 12 May 1629, although the latter is more likely to have been a carpenter. The following baptismal records undoubtedly refer to the owner of the goods in this sale. On 2 September 1618, Sijmon Teunisz. and his wife Anne Jans had their son Govert baptized in the N.K. in the presence of Marij Jans (DTB 40/17). On 13 March 1629, the same parents had their daughter Elisabeth baptized in the N.K. in the presence of Ester Jans (DTB 41/13). Symen Thonisz. may have been the brother of Pieter Thonisz. (one of the buyers at the sale), who in turn may have been the painter of that name (see the NOTES to R 8388 of Montias2), and of Hendrick Theunisz., likewise a buyer (R 8368 of Montias2), who married Lysbeth Jans (the sister of Anne, Marij, and Ester Jans ?).
