BuyerJan van Belle
Buyer FamilyBelle, Jan van
Buyer NotesJan van Belle came from a family of hatmakers originally from Wijnoxberger (Bergues). He spent some time in Breda before settling in Amsterdam before 1615 (see following document) (Van Eeghen in Jaarboek Amstelodamum 76(1984), p. 57). On 18 June 1615, Jacques de Horne in Vlissinge declared at the request of Jan van Bolle (probably a transcription error for Belle) that the petitioner (Van Bolle) in the year 1607 had spent two years with him (Van Horne) in Calis (Calais) in France learning ivory turning (yvoirdraeyen). He had completed his time (of apprenticeship) and had behaved properly (Van Dillen, Bronnen tot de geschiedenis van het bedrijfsleven 78(1933), p. 114). From the following betrothal document it emerges that Jan van Belle was about 14 years old when he began his apprenticeship. Jan van Belle, yvoirdraijer (ivory turner or carver), 26, was betrothed to Lijfje Andries (Kaen), 29, living on the Delftse Bierkay, assisted by her sister Elisabeth, on 16 May 1619 (DTB 423/267). Jan van Belle was thus the son-in-law of Andries Jansz. Kaen (or Caan) of the present inventory. On 23 October 1631. Jan van Belle and Lijfje Andries had their son Johannis baptized in the O.K. in the presence of Sara IJsacx and Steffeny Andries (DTB 6/319). Sara IJsacx may be identical with the buyer Sara Isaacks of R 37195. At some point, Jan van Belle went back to the family business of hatmaking. Van Belle was closely connected with the family Wijmer-Six. On 7 March 1627, Pieter Wijmer (of R 28340) was a witness (godfather) at the baptism of Andries van Belle, the son of Jan van Belle and Lijfje Andries (Van Eeghen, op. cit. p. 57). Jan van Belle paid a tax of 5 f. in 1631, at which time he lived on the West side of the Beursstraet (Kohier, fol. 266v. p. 61). On 19 October 1630, Jan van Belle, along with Gillis Silvester (of R 32668), was cited as arbiter in a dispute between Hendrick Jansz., clock maker, and his apprentice Joost Sillemans, concerning the time that Sillemans was supposed to spend in Hendrick Jansz.'s service (NA 847). On 4 October 1635, Jan van Belle appeared before the Orphan Chamber as guardian over the children left by Daniel Eduards, hatmaker (WK 5073/789). On 16 October 1635, Jan van Belle, hat dealer, named Christian Barentsz., cadet of His Grace the Count of Oldenburg to collect from Michiel Lemens 158 f. for hats delivered (NA 991, fol.23, Not. J. Bosch). By 14 February 1634, he had become merchant, as emerges from a deposition where he gave his age as 39. In this deposition, he declared at the request of Marten van Rutgers that he had sold to Anthony van Davelaer (of INVNO 1030), on behalf of Alida Sicx, widow of Adriaen Cromhout (cited in the NOTES to R 27634), 24 morgen of land, for 415 gulden per morgen (NA 409, film 4787). Alida (or Aeltge) Six (1596-1647) married Adriaen Cromhout on 7 June 1615. She was the daughter of Guillame Six (1564-1619) and the aunt of Jean Six (married to Maria Wijmer) of Rembrandt fame, who is also cited below (Elias, Vroedschap, pp. 365 and 458). On 20 March 1635, Maria van Belle, daughter of Jan van Bellen, ivory turner and hatmaker, and of Lijfje Andries Kaen, living in the Beursstraet, was baptized (Moeller in Jaarboek Amstelodamum 76(1984), note 46). On 8 December 1635, an Orphan Chamber sale was held at the request of Tys Jansz. and Jan van Belle, the guardians of the child left by David Draet and Grietge Everts. The sale, which is not included in this databank, contained virtually no art. The total proceeds were f 642: 4:--. In 1636 and 1637, a niece and a nephew of Pieter Wijmer married, respectively, a brother and a sister of Jan van Belle (Van Eeghen, loc. cit.) In 1638, Jan van Belle bought a lot on the Keizersgracht where he carried on his hatmaking craft (along with ivory turning ?) He lived on the Beursstraat until his death. His remains were carried from the Beurstraat to the N.Z. Kapel for his burial on 24 July 1649 (Van Eeghen, loc. cit.) He died in impoverished circumstances, due to his inability to reimburse Jan Six for a loan of 3,697 f. 10 st. which he had incurred on 2 January 1640. Because only 583 f. had been repaid by the time of his death, his house, at the sign of the Breda hat, was sold bij executie on 19 January 1656 for the benefit of Jan Six (whose surety was the art dealer Gerrit Uylenburg, the son of Hendrick Uylenburg of R 24428). What was left of the proceeds was inherited by Maria van Belle. Shortly before the marriage of Maria van Belle to the merchant Herman Hagerfeldt in 1651, her portrait had been painted by Jan Lievens. In his Album Amicorum, Jan Six had written a poem, in 1659, in praise of her portrait. Gondina Weerdt also wrote some lines on the portrait (published in a bundle of her poems) (Van Eeghen, loc. cit.) Maria van Belle seems also to have been a poet. Jan van Belle seems to have remarried. On 18 March 1660, Barent Graet, painter, 32, living in the Spiegelstraet, was betrothed to Maria Booms, widow of Jan van Bellen (Bredius, K√ľnstler-inventare, p. 1326).

BuyerWillem Verdoes, een van den vrunden
Buyer FamilyVerdoes (van der Does), Willem
Buyer NotesThe buyer is likely to be Willem van der Does (1547-1624). He was chief sheriff (hoofdschout) of Amsterdam from 1584 to 1620, receiver of the Convooien en Licenten until 1584, bought the brewery het Lam c. 1600, married Maria Govertsdr. Glimmer in 1571, the daughter of Govert Jansz. and Marij Joosten (Elias, Vroedschap, p. 325). He invested 1500 f. in the first subscription for V.O.C. shares (Van Dillen, Het oudste aandeelhoudersregister, p. 167). In 1606, he bought lots in the Haarlem lottery for 10 f. 16 st. No address was given, but he probably lived in the same house as his son on the Oudebrugsteech in de Trouw (GAA, 124/47 F 911). Willem Verdoes was apparently related to the late Andries Jansz. Caan. The widow and children of the widow of Schout Verdoes, living on the Heeregracht, were taxed 300 f. in 1631 (Kohier, fol. 305vo, p. 70).
