CommentaryGuillaume Petiteau, merchant from Antwerp, was first noted in Amsterdam in 1594 (Gelderblom, Zuid-Nederlandse kooplieden p. 311). On 7 March 1606, Guillame Petiteau, from Antwerp, 28 years old, living in the Nes, assisted by his father Jeronimus Petiteau and his mother Tanneken van Liesvelt, was betrothed to Aeltgen Pijnappels, from 's Hertogenbosch, living op de Plaets (de Dam), assisted by her uncle Ambrosius Kemp (of R 37055). Tanneken (alias Anneken) van Liesvelt was the mother of Cornelia Kieff, the wife of the painter and art dealer Jan Basse (of R 7637), of Catharina Kieff, married to Israel Gerbier (of R 23616), and of Anna Kieff, married to Pieter Rodenburgh. Guillame Petiteau was a merchant who did business with France. In 1602, he imported sugar syrop from La Rochelle, which he sold to Guillaume Wijs, sugar refiner (Van Dillen, Bronnen tot de geschiedenis van het bedrijfsleven R.G.P., 69(1929), p. 602.) He invested 900 f. in the first subscription to the V.O.C. on behalf of Pieter Boll Cornelisz. living in Haarlem (Van Dillen, Het oudste aandeelhoudersregister, pp. 248-9.) He was a shooter in the company of Adriaen Pietersz. Raep in 1603 (Oud Holland 15 (1897), p. 134). Aelten Pijnappels, wife of Gielgaem Piettoes (sic), was buried on 10 October 1611 (DTB 1043/107). Guillaem Petiteau must have died soon after (in any case, before October 1613 when this sale was held). Hans (or Jean) Petiteau, who received the proceeds of the auction sale with Jan Hansberch (van Hensbergen) was a paper dealer. He was probably a close relative of Guillame Petiteau. He was first noted in Amsterdam in 1623 (Gelderblom, op.cit. p. 311). Hans Petitau and his sister, living on the Cingel, paid a tax of 75 f. in 1631 (Kohier fol. 12, p.4). On 8 January 1635, Jan van Ceulen, acting on behalf of Bonaventura and Abraham Elsevier in Leiden, insinuated Jean Petiteau. They claimed that 300 bales of paper which they had bought from Petiteau had not been delivered. This had harmed their business and caused idleness among their workers, especially now that the wars in Germany had brought about a great scarcity of paper (Van Dillen, Bronnen tot de geschiedenis van het bedrijfsleven 144(1974), p.77). On 3 August 1638, Abraham Dies[...], book dealer, 62, and Anna Petiteau, spinster of major age, 63, declared at the request of Hendrick Braems and Jacomo van Uffele(n) (of R 7706) that Hans Petiteau, merchant in his life time and paper dealer, had died on 14 May 1637 (NA 696A, Not. J. Warnaerts). Anna Petiteau was the sister of Hans Petiteau. On 25 June 1640, the Notary Willem Hasen certified that Abraham de Hertogh was a citizen of Amsterdam and a merchant and that he was lawfully married to Juffr. Anna van Zoelen (one year). Anna van Zoelen was the only heir of Hans Petiteau. Hasen had known Hans's sister Anna Petiteau for 23 years (NA 1601, fol. 57, Not. W. Hasen). On 27 December 1633, Jan van Hensbergen (cited in the INTRO), as husband and guardian of Elisabeth Pijnappel, Elias van Ceulen (of R 37031 of Montias 2), as husband and guardian of Susanna van Pijnappels, and Bartholomeus van Gennip (of R 27481 of Montias2), as husband and guardian of Agatha (Agnieta) Pijnappels, all daughters of Aeltje Pijnappels, gave a procuration to a resident of Den Bosch to collect moneys due to them from the late Anthony Pijnappel and Margriete Brieven (NA 595, fol. 409, Not. Lamberti). On 17 June 1650, Jan van Heynsberch (probably identical with Jan van Hensbergen) signed an agreement with 23 other creditors of Cornelis van Bruegel (cited in the NOTES to R 35467 of Montias2) in reduction of his debts (DBK 5072/972).
