BuyerMatheus Huijbrechtsz. in de Pellecaen in de Warmoesstraet
Buyer FamilyHuijbrechtsz., Matheus
Buyer NotesMatheus Huijbrechtsz. was betrothed to Annetgen Havicks (van de Velde) from Alkmaar on 11 October 1614 (DTB 763/32). The couple had children baptized on August 16, 1615, 30 November 1617, and 22 September 1619. On 6 January 1622, Mattheus Huibertsz. and Annetje Havickx had their son Havick baptized in the O.K. in the presence of Havick van de Velde, Meijnsje van de Velde and Aeltge van de Velde (DTB 6/1). On 10 May 1630, Matheus Hubrechtsz., passementvercoper (dealer in lace and embroidery), sold his house de Pelicaen on the Warmoesstraat (no. 95) (J.G. Kam, Waar was dat huis in de Warmoesstraat? 1968, p. 35/22). The combination of first name (Matheus) and patronymic (Huijbrechtsz.) is rare enough to suggest that he may be identical with Matthijs Huybrechts, who led an attempt to exonerate predikant Hanecop in 1627, after the consistory had resolved to ban him (and refused to let him partake in Communion) for urging leniency toward the Remonstrants. He claimed that he had only signed the petition to support Hanecop. When the consistory, before which he was called, said that he had gone the way of Korach, Dathan and Abiram, he became angry and compared the consistory with the Council of Constanz and Hanecop with Johannes Hus (Evenhuis, Ook dit was Amsterdam, Amsterdam, vol.1, 1965, p.297).

BuyerRoeloff Codde [crossed out: Cornelis Jansz. Souburch]
Buyer FamilyCodde, Roeloff (Pietersz.)
Buyer NotesIn 1606, Roeloff Cod, living in the Kalverstraet in de Twee Groene Codden, bought lots in the Haarlem lottery for 1 f. 16 st. (GAA, 32/70 F 258). On 22 December 1612, Roeloff Pietersz. Cod, 27 years old, assisted by his mother Mary Roeloffs, was betrothed to Annetge Franssen de Leeuw, assisted by her father Franchoijs de Leeuw (of R 29359), both living in the Calverstraet (DTB 667/51). He was the brother of Jacob Pietersz. Codde of R 8318 and of Marten Pietersz. Codde of R 21399. Roelof Codde was a regent of the Aalmoezeniersweeshuis in 1632 (Wagenaar, Amsterdam, vol. 2, p. 300). Roeloff Codde paid a tax of 75 f. in 1631, at which time he lived on the O.Z. Voorburchwal (Kohier, fol. 241, p. 55). In the 1630s, he frequently participated in pools to insure ships. In early December 1636 (date unknown due to fire damage), Roelof Codde, Hans Schepel, and Joan Legouche all contributed to the insurance of a ship carrying muskets and powder on behalf of Alphonse de Lopez, counsellor of the French King. Lopez, in september 1639, bought Raphael's Portrait of Castiglione at an Orphan Chamber auction for 3,500 f. for Louis XIII (NA 949, film 1172, Notary Baddel). In late 1636 (exact date unknown, due to fire damage of document), Jeronimus Oosterycker lodged an insinuation against Sr. Roeloff Codde, Jan (Michielsz.) Blaeuw and Andries Pels concerning an insurance claim (NA 951, film 1173, Not. Baddel). Andries Pels was a sugar refiner, born in Antwerp in 1591, who spent some time in Hanau before settling in Amsterdam. He was married to Catrijna Vogelaer. He died in 1666 (Gelderblom, Prosopographic Data Base and Zuid-Nederlandse kooplieden, p. 310 and DTB 41/97). On 14 July 1635, Jan du Pont, merchant in Amsterdam, notified David Born, Roeloff Codde, Jan Michielsz. Blaeuw, Jacob Codde (Roeloff's brother of R 8318), and Hans Schepel that his boat to Calais had been captured by the Duijnkerk freebooters (die van Duijnkerck). This was of course to establish an insurance claim (NA 412A, fol. 35, Not. Jacob and Nicolaes Jacobsz.) On 11 April 1636, Roeloff Codde, together with 30 other merchants, testified to the credit-worthiness of Adriaen van Ackerlaeck (NA 695A, film 4821). Adriaen van Ackerlaeck had married a distant niece of P.C. Hooft in 1633 (Letter to Carel Hellemans, De briefwisseling van Cornelis Pieterszoon Hooft, vol. 2, p. 861). In 1656, Roeloff Codde had a house built on the St. Maertensdijck, for which he paid a carpenter wages equal to 1127 f. 18 st. (Van Dillen, Bronnen tot de geschiedenis van het bedrijfsleven 144(1974), p. 664.) He went bankrupt in that same year. For his bankrupt inventory drawn up under the supervision of the DBK, see INVNO 1282. He was the brother of Marten Codde (of R 21399) and of Jacob Codde (cited above), who also went bankrupt (in 1646). Roeloff Codde was buried in the N.K. on 9 May 1669 (DTB 1055/150). He was the uncle of the poet Pieter Codde (the son of his sister Anna Codde and of Adriaen Andriess) (Oud Holland, 2(1884), p. 44). He was a member of a prominent Roman Catholic family.

Buyer NotesOn 27 April 1607, Govert Jansen Verhooch, from Amsterdam, spice merchant (kruidenier), about 30 years old, declared at the request of Adriaen Pietersen Mae from Middelburgh that he had a procuration from Johan Barbosa and that he had traveled on the latter's behalf on a ship of Gerrit Eghbertsen of Emden. In December 1603, Jan Barbosa, the captain of the Castle of Recife, had been arrested in Pernambuco but had been released, along with the cargaison (NA 195, fol. 208, Not. Bruyningh, Extracten). Govert Verhooch lived op 't Water in the Ossenhooft.

BuyerAdriaen Govertsz. verwer in de verweryen in't Kalff
Buyer FamilyGovertsz., Adriaen (I)
Buyer NotesThe buyer is likely to be Adriaen Govertsz. I (de oude) since his son, Adriaen Govertsz. II, is usually designated as de jonge. The father paid a tax of 150 f in 1631, the son a tax of 100 f. They both lived on the Verwerstraet, which confirms the identification, since Adriaen Govertsz. was said to be a dyer at the sale (Kohier, fol. 225 v). On 4 May 1619, Adriaen Govertsz. (II), from Antwerp, dyer, assisted by his father Adriaen Govertsz. (I), was betrothed to Sara Wileijn, 21, assisted by her mother Elisabeth Le [...] (DTB 423/233). On 17 July 1625, Adriaen Govers de jonge, widower of Sara Wileijn, was betrothed to Jacomijntje Andries, widow of Wouter Huybertsz. (DTB 430/180). Wouter Huybertsz. was a hose dyer (NA 21, fol. 39, act dated 7 October 1623). Sara Wileijn was doubtless related to Elisabeth Wileijn, the wife of the dyer Pieter Basse (R 33127), as emerges from an insinuation lodged on 8 March 1638 by Thomas Maurois (of R 21918) and Pierre Basse, dyer, concerning the estate of Adriaen Govertsz. II and of his widow Jacomijntje Andries. Maurois and Basse were said to be the buyers of the domain het Kalf (the same name as the dye works of Adriaen Goversz. I) in the Diememeer (NA 992, film 1221, Not. J. Busch). On the relation between the French predikant Thomas Maurois and Adriaen Govertsz. de jonge, see below and the NOTES to R 21918. On 15 May 1632, Adriaen Goverts (I?), in 't vergulde Kalf, was one of the black dyers who were inspected for possible fraud (avoidance of controls) by the substitute Schout at the request of the commissioners of the Lakenhal (Van Dillen, Bronnen tot de geschiedenis van het bedrijfsleven 78(1933), p. 801). On 16 January 1638, Jacomyntje Andries, widow of Adriaen Govertsz., green dyer (II), named Willem Claesz. Listingh, spices merchant, to sell on her behalf a house and other assets for the profit of the children of her late husband (NA 952, film 1176, Not. B. Baddel). On 1 April 1638, Hans Govertsz. brought 5,000 f. to the Orphan Chamber on behalf of the three children of the late Adriaen Govertsz. (I), dyer, on account of their late mother's inheritance. Hans (or Joannes) Goverts was almost certainly the son of Adriaen Govertsz. I and the brother of Adriaen Govertsz. II. Half of the sum brought to the Orphan Chamber came from the predicant Tomas Maurois and the other half from Pieter Basse as buyer of the domain (hofstede) in the Diemermeer left by Adriaen Goverts, I for which they had committed to pay 10,000 f. (WK 5073/789). On 22 December 1638, Hans Goverts declared that his sister Anneken, 16, the daughter of Adriaen Govertsz. den ouden, dyer, and Trijntgen van den Bergh, being innocent (retarded), were entitled to a house on the north side of the Hooghstraet, plus 6000 f. in cash, which must be paid from the estate of Adriaen Govertsz. (I) (WK 5073/789). On 3 March 1661, an inventory was taken of the goods of Adriaen Goverts insolvent (III ?). Hans Goverts, named in the INTRO, declared that Adriaen Goverts II was his schoonsoon (son-in-law or possibly stepson). Jan Castel declared himself surety for Adriaen Goverts (DBK 5072/367, fol. 197 and foll., INVNO 685). Adriaen Goverts II died in 1673. On 23 January of that year he transferred to some individual the portraits of himself and his wife, of which J. van Loo is the master; the grandfather and grandmother of his wife, also by J. van Loo; the portrait of Francois van Emmerick, also by J. van Loo; the portraits of the sister of the comparant (Adriaen Govertsz.) as well as of his brother-in-law Jan Castel, likewise made by J. van Loo; a woman with a naked child and a woman with a naked bosem from the afore-said van Loo; and a Little Church (kerckje) by E. de Witte (Oud Holland 34(1916), p.52).

BuyerBarth[out]. Willemsz. in den Hamer
Buyer FamilyWillemsz., Barthout (van Beynsdorp)
Buyer NotesThe buyer, Barthout Wilemsz. or Willemsen, was a merchant and soap maker. He inherited the house den Hamer, also called de drie hamers, where he is noted at the auction, only in 1627 (from Floris van Alckemade) (Van Dillen, Bronnen tot de geschiedenis van het bedrijfsleven R.G.P. 78(1933), p. 636). On or before 21 July 1622, he and several other merchants connected with the soap and ash business, signed a petition supporting the attempt of the ash carriers to suppress competition in carrying ashes by outsiders (Van Dillen, op. cit. p.459). He paid a tax of 225 f. in 1631 (living op 't Water) (Kohier, fol. 280v, p. 64). It may be of note that Neeltje Barthouts, cited just before Barthout Willemsz. in the 1631 Kohier, paid a tax of 750 f. Neeltje Barthouts was married to Barthout Willemsz.'s brother Willem Willemsz. van Beynsdorp, who took over the soapboiling works after Barthout Willemsz.'s death. On 10 December 1633, Barthout Willemsz., 50, Jan Egbertsz. Bisschop, 43 (the brother of Paulus Bisschop of R 29011), and Jacob Cloeck, 46, made a deposition at the request of Outgert Claesz., likewise merchant. Barthout Willemsz. declared that he had bought potash (for making soap) from Outgert Claesz. (NA 409, Not. Jacob and Nicolaes Jacobsz.) On 6 April 1637, Barthout Willemsen van Beijnsdorp and Hendrick Barentsz. Hartochvelt (cited in the NOTES of R 30608), merchants in Amsterdam, declared at the request of Trojanus de Magistris that Reynier Cools had signed a contract concerning the shares in the diking of Bultsloot in Holstein (NA 1269, Not. P. Barcman, Extracten). Trojanus de Magistris was an attorney for Catholic houses, who was in relation with a number of artists. Rembrandt bought from him a painting by Rubens which he had received as collateral for a loan. He was a guardian of the painter Jan Jansz. Uijl (Jaap van der Veen, Het netwerk van verzamelaars rondom Rembrandt in Rembrandts schatkamer, Exh. Cat. Het Rembrandthuis, Amsterdam, 1999, p. 143.) Barthout Willemsz. van Beynstorp signed the February 1645 petition to the Vroedschap calling for the enforcement of currency regulations which had been issued in 1622 (Van Dillen, Wisselbanken 59(1925), p. 90). On 17 October 1646, Srs. Gerard Pietersz, 39, Rombout Verhulst, 21, and Willem Strycker, 39, declared at the request of Steven van Goor that they were coming onto the Spui by the Lutheran Church and there they had met the servant of Barthout Willemsz. and that Van Goor had asked him, in the hearing of the witnesses, whether he was willing to sell the painting that had been stolen and was now hanging in the house of Barthout Willemsz. and what he might want for it and whether he could deliver it so the deal would go through. The servant offered the painting for f. 10:10:-- and finally sold it for 10 f. (Bredius, K√ľnstler-inventare pp. 1244-5). Gerard Pietersz., Willem Stryker, and Steven van Goor were all painters. Rombout Verhulst was a sculptor.

BuyerJacob Delfft in St. Martin
Buyer FamilyDelfft, Jacob
Buyer NotesThe buyer is probably identical with Jacob Delff who was taxed 100 f in 1631 and lived on the Singel near the corner of the Warmoesgracht (Kohier, fol. 9. p. 3). On 8 January 1633, Jacob Delff, from Amsterdam, widower of Anna Schepels, living on the Coninxgracht, was betrothed to Margrieta van Weeda, j.d. living in Amersfoort (DTB 765/17). On 1 June 1639, Jacob van Campen (probably Jacob Cornelisz. van Campen (1598-1668), the natural son of Cornelis van Campen, who was married to Geertruid van Delft) brought 6,000 f. to the Orphan Chamber, in the form of an obligation owed by Philips de Flines, silk cloth dealer (of R 25445), on behalf of Sophia, 19, the daughter of the late Jacobus Delft, merchant, whose mother was Annetge Schepels (WK 5073/789). Geertruid van Delft, the daughter of Cornelis Jansz. Delft of R 21588 and of Sophie Jacobs, seems to have been the sister of Jacobus Delft.

BuyerPieter Lourens in de Nieuwendyck in de Spiegels
Buyer FamilyLourens (Laurensz.), Pieter (Spiegel) I
Buyer NotesThe buyer may be either Pieter Lourensz. Spiegel de oude(I) or de jonge(II), but more probably I, as he was often called by his Christian name and patronymic only. The father, a merchant and cloth dealer, was born in Antwerp about 1553, was married to Griet Pieters in 1582, became a citizen on 16 January 1585, and died in 1630 or 1631 (Van Dillen, Bronnen tot de geschiedenis van het bedrijfsleven R.G.P. 78(1933), p. XLIII, and Gelderblom, Prosopographic Data Base). The son, Pieter Laurensz. Spiegel de jonge(II), was betrothed to Aaltje Willems, 20, from Amsterdam, on 20 April 1607. At the time of his betrothal, he was assisted by his father Pieter Laurensz. Spiegel I; Aeltje Willems was assisted by Willem Willemsz. (Amelandt) of INVNO 1222 and Nelletgen Bartouts, her father and mother (DTB 666/66). Willem Willemsz. was the owner of the soap-boiling establishment named de Hamer on the Nieuwendijck, which, in 1626 was valued at 13,100 f. (On the assets left after their death by Willem Willemsz. and his wife Nelletge Barthouts, see Van Dillen, Bronnen, op. cit., pp. 636-8.) Willem Willemsz. was a nephew of Maritge Walichs of INVNO 719. Hendrick Laurensz. Spiegel (1549-1612), the older brother of Pieter Laurensz. Spiegel, was an art lover and collector, a distinguished man of letters, and a friend of literati including Roemer Visscher. He devised programs for several prints to designs by Hendrick Goltzius and Cornelis van Haarem (M. J. Bok, Art Lovers and Their Paintings in Dawn of the Golden Age, Exhibition Catalogue, Rijksmuseum, 1993-4, p. 160). Pieter Laurensz. I was a cloth dealer on the Nieuwen Dijck, who was a buyer of bulbs at the sale of Pieter Pietersz., horticulturist, on 25 September 1626 (WK 5073/952). The collection of Pieter Lourensz. Spiegel I and Griete Pieters was assessed by the painter Claes Moeyaert in 1631 (INVNO 267). In 1631, the heirs of Pieter Lourensz. Spiegel (de oude) paid a tax of 400 f., living on the Nieuwen Dijck (Kohier, fol. 25vo.) It was probably Pieter Laurensz. Spiegel II, living elsewhere on the Nieuwen Dijck, who paid a tax of 125 f. (Kohier, fol. 41vo.) Since the father was still alive at the time of the sale and the son should have been called de jonge, it is more likely that the buyer was the father than the son. On 3 May 1635, the books of Pieter Laurensz. Spiegel (I?) were inventorized and exhibited by Claes Cornelisz. Pronck (the son of Cornelis Martsz. Pronck of R 32466) (Van Dillen, op.cit. 144(1974), p. 90). Claes Pronck, was said to be the son-in-law of Pieter Laurensz. Spiegel (I) in an interrogatory dated 13 February 1636 (NA 889, film 595, Not. van Zwieten). Pieter Laurensz. Spiegel II seems to have become insolvent around 1633. P. C. Hooft was one of the creditors. Pronck (probably Claes Cornelisz., cited above, who was said to be Pieter Laurensz.'s brother-in-law) had apparently drawn up an agreement with the creditors (De briefwisseling van Pieter Corneliszoon Hooft, vol. 2, pp. 632-3 and p. 668). Pieter Laurensz. Spiegel I was Roman Catholic, as were Willem Willemsz. and Barthout Willems cited above. When Pieter Serwouters, the brother of Philips Serwouters of R 22040, was married in a Catholic ceremony in 1628, the event took place in the home of Pieter Laurensz. Spiegel II. The daughter of the latter, named Catarina Pieters Spiegel (1611-1652) was the godmother of Pieter Serwouters's daughter (Claudia Swan The Art of Bookkeeping, Pieter Serwouters (1586-1657) and the Status of Pictorial Accounts in Seventeenth-Century Holland in Nederlands Kunsthistorisch Jaarboek 50(2000), pp. 267-8).

Buyersolvit [crossed out: Goris de Waert]
Buyer FamilyWaert, Goris de
Buyer NotesGoris de Waert (or Weert) was a merchant, born in 's Hertogenbosch (?) around 1590 (Gelderblom, Zuid-Nederlandse kooplieden, p. 318). He was the son of Adriaen de Waert and Elisabeth van Baerle, who is presumed to have been the sister of Jan van Baerle de oude, the father of Jan van Baerle de jonge of R 20427. He was a coopmans dienaer for the Eerbare Johan Michielsz., coopman (of R 21622), according to a document dated 19 June 1612 (GAA, NA Gysberts, film 52). He married Elisabeth de Wouwer (daughter of Jan de Wouwer of R 23231) on 7 February 1616. After her death in 1619, he remarried with Tietgen Corver, born in 1591, the daughter of Jan Jansz. Corver and the sister of Claes Corver of R 8317, on 17 November 1624. When she died in 1638 she left a fortune of 200,000 f. (Elias, Vroedschap, p. 617.) Her father, Jan Jansz. Corver, signed the Remonstrant petition of 1628, as did Goris de Waert himself. Two of Tietge's brothers, Claes and Dirck Corver, were buyers at WK auctions (R 8317 and R 23516). For Goris de Waert's death inventory, see INVNO 406 of 3 January 1641. Goris de Weert, who is surely identical with the buyer, said to be merchant in Amsterdam, freighted a ship to Aelborch in the Belt on 16 July 1620 (Winkelman, Bronnen voor de geschiedenis van de Nederlandse Oostzeehandel, R.G.P., 186(1983), p. 366). On 8 July 1637, the eersame Goris de Waert and Adriaen Claesz., both merchants, together with Frans Wolphertsz. van den Berch, Jasper van Diemen, Frans Volckertsz. Croeck, Gerbrant Brouwer, Joost Baeck (the son of Laurens Baeck of R 28932), and Frans van Limborch, all curators of the estate of Dirck Corver (of R 23516) gave a procuration to Paulus Beens to request an accounting in Coningsberg for salt that had been shipped there by Goris de Weert, Adriaen Claesz. and Dirck Corver (the last for 3/11ths of the shipment) (NA 642, fil 4954, fol. 412). Gerbrant Brouwer, a grain dealer, was a regent of the Spinhuis in 1627, in which year he was portrayed with the other regents by Nicolaes Elias (Pickenoy) of R 8367. Elias, summoned on account of a delay in bringing the painting to completion, said that he was ready to paint Brouwer's clothing in the Spinhuis (Van Dillen, Bronnen tot de geschiedenis van het bedrijfsleven R.P.G. 78(1933), pp. 624-5). Frans van Limborch signed the Remonstrant petition of 1628. In 1647, Goris de Waert acquired a house on the Keisersgracht, which had apparently originally been built in 1620 as a warehouse for Gijsbert Jansz. Cloeck (E. van Houten, Grachten, p. 61). The drawing in the present lot could not be found in Goris de Waert's death inventory.
