CommentaryPieter Belten de oude was born in Antwerp in 1565 and died in Amsterdam in 1626. He was married, first, to Levina Caluwart Simons (1566-1612) and, second, to Maria van Goesbergen. He was one of the firt directors of the Westindische Compagnie. He lived in a house in the St. Anthonijbreestraat near the St. Anthonijsluijs, which he had bought from Hans van der Voort (I), the brother of the painter of the painter Cornelis van der Voort. This house was bought by Rembrandt in 1639. His son Pieter Belten de jonge (1606-1639) married Constantia Coymans in 1627. On 16 February 1634, Hendrick Voet, Pieter Belten (de jonge) (the son of Pieter Belten de oude), together as the nearest relatives and guardians over Johannes, 7 years old, the son by his second marriage (naesoon) of Pieter Belten (de oude) with was Maria van Goesbergen, declared before the Orphan Chamber that he (Johannes) was entitled to 36,000 f. for his mother's inheritance (WK 5073/789). On 22 February 1627, Anthonie Thijsz. (cited in the INTRO), widower of Elisabeth Bachers (the daugher of Andreas Bacher), 32 years old, assisted by his uncle Anthonius Thyskens, professor of theology at Leyden University, living on the Breestraet, was betrothed to Magdalena Baltes, from Amsterdam, 27 years old, assisted by Pieter Belten de oude (DTB 432/66). On the baptisms of the couple's children, see the NOTES to R 987. After Anthony's death, she remarried with Anthony's cousin Christoffel Thijsz. in 1634. On 19 August 1635, the newly married couple had their son Christoffel baptized in the N.K. in the presence of Pieter Beltens (de jonge) (DTB 41/395). On 25 October 1637, their son, again named Cristoffel, was baptized in the N.K. in the presence of Samuel de Bacher (the son of Andreas de Bacher) (DTB 42/49). Magdalena Beltens and Christoffel Thijsz. sold the house on the Breestraet to Rembrandt on 5 January 1639 (Dudok van Heel in Kroniek van het Rembrandthuis 97/1-2, pp. 7-9.)
