IntroductionOp den 13e april 1635 zijn de naergelaten goederen vercoft van Procureur Hendrick van Marcken.
CommentaryThe procuror Hendrick van Marcken was married to Maritgen Everts de Swart. He was an attorney before the court (de Vierschaer) of Amsterdam. He was portrayed as a shooter in the company of Reynst Pietersz. in a group portrait by Dirck Barentsz. in 1585 (Oud Holland 15(1897), p. 136). He was the father of Frans van Marcken of R 23546 of Montias2, sheriff of Amstelveen in 1635; of Maritgen van Marcken, married to Andries Mombers; of Diewertgen van Marcken, married to Pieter Cornelisz.; and of Aeltgen van Marcken, married to Barent Gerritsz. Bernardyns, who died before 11 May 1629, when she appeared before the Orphan Chamber as a widow with children (WK 5073/789). Aeltgen van Marcken apparently remarried with Jan Garbrantsz., ship's carpenter, before 9 January 1636, when she was scheduled to appear before the Commissary for Small Affairs (commissaris voor cleijne saecken) (NA 991, fol. 1, Not. J. Bosch). On 29 July 1632, Anna Claes, assisted by her guardian Hendrick Claesz. van Marcken, appeared before the Orphan Chamber on behalf of her children with her late husband, a shoemaker (WK 5073/789). Hendrick van Marcken was portrayed, possibly by Cornelis Ketel or by Dirck Barendsz., approximately in 1609, in the Korporaalschap of Reynst Pietersz. and vaandrig Claes Claesz. Kruijs (Blankert, Amsterdams Historisch Museum, p. 404). In 1602, Reijnier Paeuw invested 100 f. for Hendrick van Marckel in the first subscription for V.O.C. shares (Van Dillen, Het oudste aandeelhoudersregister, p. 251). Hendrick van Marcken was a buyer of porceleijn at an Orphan Chamber sale of 16 October 1626 (WK 5073/952). Hendrick van Marcken must have died in late 1634 or early 1635 when his family came to an agreement on the settlement of the estate. which had apparently had more assets than debts and was to be turned over to his creditors. The agreement was signed on 11 February 1635 by the widow Maritgen Everts de Swart; by Frederick Harmensz. Dickstein, her brother-in-law; by her nephew and guardian Jan Pauw; by her son Frans van Marcken; by Andries Mombers, married to Maritgen van Marcken; by Pieter Cornelisz., married to Dieuwertgen van Marcken; and by Aeltge van Marcken, widow of Barent Gerritsz. (Bernardyn) (NA 991, film 1220, fol.25, Not. Jan Bosch). On 14 March 1636, Maritge de Swart, widow of Hendrick van Marcken, named Hugo van Groenewegen to defend her against Frans van Marcken, Schout of Amstelveen (NA 991, fol.26, Not. J. Bosch).
