BuyerIsacq Warnersz. Kisgens
Buyer FamilyKisgens (Kitsgens, Kistgens), Isacq Warnersz.
Buyer NotesOn 4 January 1601, Isaac Warnersz., 21, assisted by his father Warnar Kistgens, was betrothed to Claertge Gerrits, 24, assisted by Mary Gysberts, her mother, and Gerritge Gysberts, her godmother (DTB 409/307). On 22 December 1602, Isack Warnaersz., ironmonger (ysercramer) and Claertgen eerrits had their son Warnaer baptized in the O.K. in the presence of IJtgen Warnaers (DTB 4/52). IJtgen Warnaers was the sister of Isacq Warnersz. The painter Jan Basse witnessed her pre-nuptial contract with Ghijsbert Jansz. Keyser (see the NOTES to R 7637). Warner Jansz. (Isacksz. ?) Kisgies was betrothed to Aejltje Hillbrants on 13 December 1631. Warnar, son of the late Isaacq Warnaerts Kistgens, was buried in the N.K. on 15 November 1685 (DTB 1456/295). Isaack Warnersz. was the guardian of the children left by Femmetgen Jans and Jan Dircxsz. compasmacker (INVNO 875). On 23 January 1627, he assisted Trijn Jans (Hoogsaet), the daughter of Femmetge Jans and Jan Dircksz. (Hoogsaet), when she was betrothed to the skipper Pieter Claess (Wijnman, Uit de kring van Rembrandt en Vondel, 1959, p. 22). Thirty years later Trijn Jans Hoogsaet was portrayed by Rembrandt (see the NOTES to R 23594). The Hoogsaets were Mennonites, as, presumably, was Isaack Warnaertsz. On 22 April 1632, Isaac Warnaertsz. Kistgens, broker in potash, had received a notice sealed with the notary's seal in which was written: These three vats of potash should be delivered to Isaack Warnaertsz. Kistgens, living near the Raemsbrugge in Duijnhelm in Amsterdam. The comparant (Kitsgens) had seen on the Leidsche Veer three vats of potash marked A which the skipper of the barge had said were destined for him, but no bill was sent with it (NA 843, fol. 114, Hoogeboom). On 14 December 1633, Isaack Wernersz. Kitsgens, for himself and for his brother-in-law Jan Gerritsz. (presumably the brother of his wife Claertge Gerrits), together with some other individuals (listed in the NOTES to R 25295, transferred a single grave to Hendrick Fredericksz., beer distributor, of R 25295 (NA 595, fol. 398, Not. Lamberti). Pieter Warnaertsz. Kistgens was also a brother of Isaack Warnaertsz. On 27 May 1610, he insinuated Coenradt van Berensteyn (NA 372, fol. 53). On 11 July 1619, various individuals from Utrecht declared themselves sureties for the journey of Pieter Warnaertsz. Kitsgens and his wife to Jerusalem, which they had also subsidized. They were Pieter van Gheel (probably of R 31692), Steven Degens, Elias van Gheel (probably Pieter van Gheel's brother), and the sugar refiner David de l'Hommel, of INVNO 230 (NA 381, fol. 14). Pieter Warnaertsz., married to Maritge Michiels, drew up his testament on 4 September 1624 (NA 389, fol. 91). Jan de Haes (cited in the NOTES to R 20029 and R 26078), a bloemist (flower grower), was the brother-in-law of Michiel Kitsgens (information provided by Anne Goldgar).

Buyer NotesJean Herel or Harel was born in Aken in 1594, the son of Elizeus Harel and Maria Motte. He remained unmarried and died in 1687. He was a Regent of the Walenweeshuis in 1637, 1638, 1641, and 1642. In 1637, he was one of the four regents of the orphanage portrayed by Bartholomeus van der Helst (Amsterdammers geportretteerd; Kopstukken 1600-1800 (N. Middelkop ed.), Exh. Cat. 2002/2003,, p. 188). His father's widow, living on the Keysersgracht, paid a tax of 65 f. in 1631 (Kohier, fol 94vo, p. 23). In 1643, Jan Harel joined a number of other Amsterdam merchants in calling for stabilization of the currency (Van Dillen, Wisselbanken R.G.P., 59(1925), p. 85).

BuyerJacques Bours packer in de kelder
Buyer FamilyBours (Boursse), Jacques (II)
Buyer NotesJacques Boursse (II), born about 1589, was the son of Jean Boursse I of Valenciennes. He seems to have been a nephew of Jacques Boursse I, also of Valenciennes, married to Roberta Nouel (de Noel), who died about 1622 (see below). Marguerite Boursse of St. Malo, the daughter of Jacques Boursse I of Valenciennes and of Roberta Nouel, was betrothed to Jean Seulin (II), born in Aachen about 1599, on 1 October 1632, the son of Pierre Seulin of INVNO 1306. On 3 December 1632, Jacques Boursse I remarried with Catharina Pieters Seulijn, the daughter of Pieter Seulijn (Seulin) of INVNO 1306 (Jaarboek C.B.G. 19(1965), p. 164). Another daughter of Jacques Boursse I, named Bertranne Boursse, married Jean le Roux in 1619. Jacques Boursse II was a weaver of caffa and later a warehouse packer and merchant, first noted in Amsterdam in 1610 (Gelderblom, Zuid-Nederlandse kooplieden, p. 296). He owned, or was employed in, one of the numerous Amsterdam warehouses (packhuisen). On 1 September 1618, Jacques Bourse (II), from Valenciennes, caffawercker, assisted by Jan Bourse (I), his father, living in the Verwerijen, 29 years old, was betrothed to Anne de Fore (Forest), widow of Jean le Febure (le Febre) (11 months widow), living in the Cortehondtstraet (DTB 422/390). (Jaarboek C.B.G. 19(1965), p. 164). On 30 November 1622, Jacques Bourse (I), merchant, presented his two children with Roberte de Noel and brought 3,200 f. on behalf of the children for their mother's inheritance. The sons-in-law were said to be Jean le Roux (married to Bertranne Boursse) and Jean Seulin (married to Marguerite Boursse) (WK 5073/789). In any case, Anna de Fore survived her husband Jacques Boursse II. She drew up her testament on 28 July 1658, naming Jean Boursse II as her universal heir. She confirmed a bequest to her son Jean of 425 f., who had supported her and therefore deserved more than her other children. Jacques Boursse (III) had been given money to outfit him for his marriage and Esaias Boursse had received money for learning and exercising the art of painting and for his trip to Italy. She left the children of Elisabeth, from her first marriage, 25 f., the children of Magdalena, also from her first marriage, 12 f., the children of Jacques Boursse (III?) 25 f., Esaias Boursse, 25 f., her daughter Anneken, 200 f., and her son Guiljam, 300 f. Jean Boursse II approved the testament (Bredius, K√ľnstler-inventare, p.124). On 3 July 1627, Antoyne Heyme, Jacques Bourse (II), and P. Simon signed a contract to set up a company of packers. The contract was renewed several times, with different signatories, but Jacques Boursse remained a member of the company (Van Dillen, Bronnen tot de geschiedenis van het bedrijfsleven R.G.P. 78(1933), pp. 629, 644 and 144(1974), p. 49). On 1 September 1635, the honorable Jan Lambertss, 60, grain dealer, made a declaration at the request of Jacques Boursse (II) concerning the price of Russian rye in 1624 (!) (NA 412A, fol. 155, Not. Jacob and Nicolas Jacobsz.) On 20 November 1635, Sr. Jacques Boursse (II), merchant in Amsterdam, 57, made a deposition at the request of Samuel Gillis (perhaps Samuel Gillisz. Cooren of R 24944) concerning the prices of V.O.C. shares (NA 412B, Not. Jacob and Nicolas Jacobsz.) Jacques Boursse II was buried on 20 December 1648 (Nederlandsche Leeuw 50(1932), col. 239). His children included the book seller Jacques Boursse (III), the painter Esaias Boursse, Anna Boursse (married to Meyndert Taeckel), Jean Boursse (II) (of INVNO 898) (married to Machtelt Bronswinckel), and Guillaum Boursse (1626-1672) (for details see the TEXT to R 1062 of Montias1). On Bertranne Boursse, see the NOTES to R 18924. On 18 March 1656, the widow of Jacques Boursse (I?) (presumably his second wife, Cathalina Seulijns) stated that neither master nor apprentice tailor had worked in her house to make new or to repair old clothes of wool or silk (in contravention of tailors' guild rules) (Van Dillen, op.cit. 144(1974), p. 645). Jean Boursse II died between 8 and 9 November 1671 (NA 2410, Not. J. de Winter, fol. 165, INVNO 898). Jacques Boursse III married Clara, daughter of Anthony van Breen, in 1648 (DTB 466/71). On 11 August 1648, Jacques Bours (signs Boursse) (III), assisted by his uncle Jacques de Forest (Fore) (the brother of his mother Anna de Fore) and his cousin Jacques Boursse den ouden, signed a pre-nuptial agreement with Clara van Breen, assisted by her father Anthony van Breen and her brother Gillis van Breen and the heer Dirck van Os, dijckgraaff van den Beemster, her especially good friend (II), cited in the NOTES to R 21382 (NA 1597, Not. W. Hasen). Jacques Boursse den ouden, the cousin of Jacques Boursse III, may have been a son of Jacques Boursse I who died in 1622. On 3 May 1658, Jacques Boursse III and Clara van Breen had their son Gillis baptized in the presence of Mr. Gillis van Breen from Beverwijk. Clara van Breen was the youngest daughter of Anthony van Breen and of Marij van Breen. Anthony Smijters (of R 29995) had been present at the baptism of Clara in 1618 (I. van Eeghen, Daniel van Breen 'schriftsnijder' te Amsterdam en Beverwijk Maandblad Amstelodamum 77(1990), pp. 52-3). Anthony van Breen was one of the witnesses to the first accounting of the V.O.C. on 31 August 1602 (Van Dillen, Het oudste aandeelhoudersregister p.252). Maria van Breen, another daughter of Anthony van Breen, married Herman Becx II on or about 2 March 1639 when the couple's prenuptial contract was signed (see the NOTES to R 26927). Cornelia van Breen, cited below, was the niece of Anthony van Breen. On 4 September 1623, Lambert Helmichsz. van Tweehuysen, living in Dantzig, assisted by his swager Marcus Westhoff and his uncle Lambert van Tweehuysen(I), signed a pre-nuptial contract with Cornelia van Breen, born in Dantzig, assisted by Daniel van Breen, her brother, and Anthonie van Breen, her uncle, as well as Andries Rijckerts and Philips Metsue, her neven (NA 291, fol. 135, cited in Wijnroks, Handel tussen Rusland en de Nederlanden 1560-1640, p. 278). On Marcus Westhoff, see the NOTES to R 27047. On the merchant Andries Rijckaert, see the TEXT of R 1116 of Montias1. On Philips Metsue, see the NOTES to R 27367 of Montias2. Daniel van Breen was secretary of the Remonstant Simon Episcopius at the time of the Synod of Dordrecht. On 15 August 1658, Jacques Boursse (II), for himself and as father of Maria, Anthony and Jacobus Boursse; Guilljam Boursse; Anna Boursse, spinster of majority age, assisted by notary J.H. Leuven; and Esaias Boursse, all children of the late Jacus Boursse and Anna de Fore; as well as Jan Maurissen (of INVNO 1330), as father and guardian of his two children, procreated by Elisabeth le Febre, his late first wife, who was a daughter of Jan le Febre and of the aforesaid Anna le Fore, recognized and approved the testament of their parents and their stepmother of 23 July 1658 (Bredius, op.cit. p.125). On 28 March 1679, Sr. Anthony Boursse (the son of Jacques Boursse (III) declared that he had seen the testament of the late Anthony van Breen passed on 20 March 1649 and the codicil of 30 July 1651, as well as the testament of his mother Clara van Breen and the Weeskamer act of his father Jacques Boursse (III) of 14 October 1659 and the agreement between his father Jacques Boursse and Gillis van Breen (the grandfather of Clara van Breen), and the inventory of his late brother Jacob Boursse (Oud Holland 3(1885), p. 70).

BuyerBalthes Jansz. drogist in de Halsteegh
Buyer FamilyJansz., Balthes (Balthasar)
Buyer NotesOn 3 April 1618, Balthasar Jansz. (affixes drogist to his signature), from Hambruch, 27, no living parents, living in the Halsteech, was betrothed to Wybrechje Bennings, 26, assisted by her mother Lysbeth Lamberts. Lysbeth Lamberts was a witness at the baptism of a child of the goldsmith Wouter Frericx and of Griet Opkes in 1596 (R 31714) (DTB 422/212). Wybrechje (Wijbrich) Bennings, born in 1592, the daughter of Jan Benningh Claesz. and of Lijsbeth Lamberts Coppen, was buried on 9 November 1629 (Elias, Vroedschap, p. 44). On Jan Claesz. Benning, feather dealer, see the NOTES to R 26500. On 10 January 1621, Balthasar Jansz. drogist and Wijberchje Bennings had their son Johannes baptized in the N.K. in the presence of Lysbet Matheus van Hake (DTB 5/134). Balthasar was a dealer in herbs and other medicines. Balthasar Jansz. drogist bought drogist equipment at the sale of Pieter Mercijs on 25 February 1625. He was still living in the Halsteech in 1631 when he paid a tax of 350 f. (Kohier, fol. 212, p. 49). He was also the owner of a house in the Warmoesstraet (see the act of 3 October 1635, where he appeared with Neeltge (Cornelis) Canters, widow of Jan Benningh Coeckebacker I in NA 597, fol. 113). According to Elias, Balthasar Jansz. died shortly before November 1646, but his death inventory (INVNO 1241) was actually taken on 11 June 1646. The total wealth of the couple was estimated at 280,000 f. in 1646 (Elias, ibid.) Curiously enough, according to a deposition by two witnesses of 29 December 1638, Balthasar Jansz. (another?) had been dead two years in the preceding May (NA 834). On 30 May 1642, the inventory of Magdalena Jans, daughter of Sr. Balthasar Jansz., and of Paulus Jansz. IJpelaer, the brother of Gabriel Jansz. IJpelaer of INVNO 264, was taken. The goods were found in the house of Balthasar Jansz. The clothing alone were evaluated at 2,753 f. and the jewelry and silver at 4,826 f. There were virtually no works of art in the inventory, which may have been incomplete (NA 413, film 1381, Not. F. Bruyning). Another daughter, named Elisabeth Jans, married Jacobus Reynst (1621-1667), who became a director of the W.I.C. (Elias, Vroedschap, p. 369). Balthasar Jansz., together with Jan le Gouche, were the court-appointed curators of the estate of Johannes le Maire, whose inventory was taken on 13 October 1642 (INVNO 1170).

BuyerJan Roup op de Achterburchwall
Buyer FamilyRoup, Jan
Buyer NotesOn 29 October 1617, Jan Roupe had his daughter Geertgen baptized in the Lutheran church in the presence of Willem Vinck and Willem van der Hoevelen (DTB 138/216). Willem Vinck is perhaps identical with the merchant of that name who was the father of Abraham Vinck of R 29545. Willem van der Hoevelen may possibly be identical with the leather maker Willem van Heuvel of R 33337. Jan Roup is surely identical with Jan Roep who paid a tax of 20 f. in 1631, although lived at that time on the Singel (Kohier, fol. 11, p. 4). On a deposition (dated 27 September 1635) involving Jan Roep, who was said to have committed scandalous acts with the wife of a fur worker, see the TEXT to R 1094 of Montias1.

BuyerPhilips Fonteyn in de Nes
Buyer FamilyFonteyn (Fontaine), Philips (Philippe) (de la) (I)
Buyer NotesThis is likely to be Philippe de la Fontaine, dit Wicart (I), born about 1593 who was married to Marie Flament. The couple baptized a child, named Andries, on 9 February 1620 in the Wals Kerck (DTB 130/98). On 23 February 1631, Philips was called boratwercker (he made borat, a mixture of silk and woolen cloth), when, together with Dirck van Millegem of R 24343, he turned over a house in the Hoochstraet to Jan Courten, seller of second-hand clothes, where Pieter ter Haer (of R 21042) was living (NA 910, Notary Pieter Eyloff). Jan Courten (Koerten) (c. 1622-before 1669) was betrothed to Etje Cardinaels on 5 October 1647. At this time Jan Koerten was said to be a shopowner. Etje Cardinaals was assisted by her father Mr. Sybrant Cardinael who was very probably a surgeon. Jan Koerten and Etje Cardinaals were the parents of Johanna Koerten, a famous paper cutter (knipster), who married Adriaen Block in 1694. (Oud Holland 42(1925), 78-9). Philips Fonteyns I was living in de Nes when one of his children was buried on 11 April 1635 (DTB 1130/54). On his son Philips Fonteyn de jonge (II), born in 1616, of INVNO 1253, see the TEXT of R 1174 of Montias1. On 2 July 1638 Philippe de la Fontaine I, 45, silk cloth merchant, and Abraham Robijn, lace worker, 34, testified about an individual they both knew, at the request of Abraham Hey (NA 1466, film 1556). On 16 September 1639, Jacob Fransz. tailor, 50, and Loduwyck van Wouw, 22, made a deposition at the request of Philippe de la Fontaine de oude, silk cloth merchant, about an incident in the cloth trade concerning Gillis Silvester (of R 32668) which had occurred some months ago (NA 421, fol. 196). The brother Jan (of R 8357) of Philippe de la Fontaine II, married Maria Kuysten, the sister of Elisabeth Kuysten, the wife of Hendrick Aertsz. Kemp, probably of R 25363 (Nederlandsche Leeuw 52(1934), col. 246.) On 29 February 1640, a broker declared at the request of Willem Muylman, merchant, that Muylman had sold to Philips Fonteyn de jonge (II) four bolts of watered silk stuffs for f. 1043. A dispute ensued about the measurement of the bolts and the ensuing payment (Van Dillen, Bronnen tot de geschiedenis van het bedrijfsleven R.P.G. 144(1974), p. 258). On 19 February 1650, Jan Fonteyn sold to his brother Philip Fonteyn II half of a property with a garden house located outside the Regulierspoort (NA 1818, film 2083). He is not identical with Jean de la Fontaine, married to Margaretha le Thor, the daughter of Johannes le Thor (II), who was buried on 11 November 1678.

BuyerPieter de la Tombe
Buyer FamilyTombe, Pieter de la
Buyer NotesPieter de la Tombe,1593-1674, born in Amsterdam, was a book and art dealer as well as a painter. His brothers Jacob, Isaack and Nicolaes (1593-1674) were also book dealers and artists. On 28 March 1650, the honorable Sara Smijters, wife of domine Petrus Brest, gave power of attorney to Pieter de la Tombe, living here, to collect money due to her from Henricus Geldorpius arising from the sale of a house (NA 1818, film 2083). Sara Smijters, named in this act, cannot be identical with the woman of the same name married to Rogier van Loij (of R 32674) who had died before 1634 when Van Loij remarried. On 7 September 1657, Catharina Cloppenburg, widow of Emanuel Colijn, book seller, gave a procuration to Pieter de la Tombe to collect money from a book seller in Paris (Oud Holland, vol. 4 (1886), p. 142.) On 21 February 1671, Pieter de la Tombe wrote a codicil to his testament in which he bequeathed to his sister's son Abraham Fabritius his share in a house in the Warmoesstraat next to the corner of the St. Annastraat and twee sijne conterfeytsels zoo in zijn jonge als oude dagen door Rembrandt van Rijn, plus six of the best paintings that he would leave behind (NA 1772, Not. Spitzhoff, cited by I. van Eeghen, De familie de la Tombe en Rembrandt, Oud Holland 71(1956), pp. 43-4). In a deposition of 17 June 1650, Rembrandt declared that, shortly after the auction of the paintings of Leendert van Beyeren, Pieter de la Tombe had come to see some drawings that he, Rembrandt, had acquired and indicated that he might like to buy them (NA 1787, fol. 213, cited in Strauss, Rembrandt Documents, p. 281). Pieter de la Tombe also witnessed a procuration that Rembrandt drew up in 1653. After the death of his brother Jacob, he became a preferred creditor of Rembrandt. He died at an advanced age in 1674 (I. van Eeghen, op.cit. pp. 43-49). Pieter de la Tombe was first trained as a book binder, then became a seller of prints and drawings. His shop was located on the Vijgendam in de Fransche Bijbel (Strauss, op.cit. p. 359). He was the son of Desiderius de la Tombe, born in Brussels, who married Anna van Eyck in London around 1589, and died in 1629, Desiderius seems to have been a brother of Leon de la Tombe, the father of the painter Salomon de la Tombe of R 30861. Pieter was therefore Salomon's cousin. Beside Pieter, Jacob, and Leon de la Tombe, Desiderius had a daughter Anna to whom his father bequathed a part of a house in Brussels in 1610. On 28 December 1613, Anna de la Tombe was betrothed to Jean Smyters Antonisz., 24, French teacher.
