APR 1 1909 ^ 


Although the family treated of in this work has not 
been definitely traced beyond Pierre de Carpentier of 
Messen, Flanders, yet its origin appears in "Histoire 
de Cambray et du Cambresis, par Jean le Carpentier," 
published at Leyden, 1664, vol. II., page 369: 

"Since the year 11 60 the family is known in the 
archives of the Abbey of Vauchelles to which much 
assistance was rendered by Barthelemy and Renaud 
Carpentier, issue of Roger, Sire de Gouy, as we learn 
from the Tournament of Auchin in the year 1096. Siger 
Carpentier and Godefroy, descended from the said Renaud, 
were held in high esteem in Cambray and adjacent parts 
about 1200. Siger gave, among others, the tithes of 
Attiche to the Abbey of Cisoing in the year 1265, as 
can be seen in the archives of that place. He was 
Seigneur de Vannes and one of the most eminent knights 
of his time and laid tfte foundation for a fair posterity, 
which settled in French Flanders, through his marriage 
with Berthe Dame en Arquenghem, by whom he had 
a son named Anseau, whose descendants maintained 
themselves with glory and fame as late as the year 1400, 
when some of them, because of disfavor, were obliged 
to retreat to France, where, to the present day, they 
keep up the rank of their ancient nobility and are Seig- 
neurs de Berthier, de Crecy, de Machy, de Ratilly, de 
Marigny, etc. 

" This House possessed in the Netherlands, where the 
main branch has been extinct for nearly a century, the 
Seigneuries de Vannes, d' Avesnes lez Obert, du petit 
Ribecourt, de Maire, de Hamarr6e, de Tilloy, de Waig- 
nou, d'Aumont, de Flechinet, etc. It gave a bishop 
to Chartres and an abbot to St. Vaast in Arras; an 
almoner to Robert, Count de Flanders; governors to 

Digitized by 



Therouane; grand bailiffs to Courtray; counsellors and 
gallant captains for armies to emperors, kings, and 
princes, and even governors to newly discovered and 
conquered countries of the United Netherlands, etc. It 
has distinguished itself through brilliant alliances by 
marriage with many noble houses. Some of the de- 
scendants of the aforesaid Godefroy de Carpentier, Sire 
de Daniel and d'Avesnes-les-Obert (benefactor of the 
Abbey of Vaucelles according to a title of the year 1280, 
and brother of the aforesaid Siger, Sire de Vannes), 
left for England and Holland, where they bear different 
arms, although descended from the same house which 
recognizes as its originators the ancient and illustrious 
Seigneurs de Gouy or Goy, who are so renowned in the 
archives of the abbies of St. Vaast d'Arras, Mont St. 
Eloy, Honnecourt, Mont St. Martin, etc., since the 
year 1036, which is mentioned by Andr6 Du Chesne in 
his genealogical works. 

" Of this house was Jean le Carpentier, Treasurer- 
General of the Emperor Charles the Fifth, who by Mar- 
guerite de Langhe, daughter of Jean, had a daughter 
named Jeanne le Carpentier, who married Matthieu de 
Keinooghen, son of Jean Escuyer and Barbe d'Espel- 
ghem, who was father of Marie de Keynooghem married 
to Adrian van der Goes."

I. i. Pieter de Carpentier * was born during the mid- 
dle of the fifteenth century, although the place of his 
birth and date have not been 
ascertained. He resided, how- 
ever, at Messen, West Flanders, 
Belgium, of which city he was 
Treasurer ("General Account 
of the Abbey of Messines, March 
5, 1507, to Easter, 1508," page 
7, Archives of Messen). His 
first wife was Catharina Godt- 
schalk whom he married in 
1488 (Family Records). The 
date of her death has not been 
obtained, although it could not 

have occurred until after 1511, the date of her son Jan 
de Carpentier's birth. The arms of the Godtschalck 
family at Lille and Brussels are 
described by Rietstap as d'arg. 
it une tour de gu. The second 
wife of Pieter de Carpentier was 
Maria, widow of Jan de Villers 
and daughter of Philips van 

Myzele and Maria (Family 

Rec.). He was Counsellor of 
the Prince de Chimay, from 
whom he received a grant of 
arms, de gu. it trots 6perons d'or, 
la molette en bos. C. un lion iss. 

•The material from which the present genealogy was compiled was obtained by 
Mr. J. L. van Dalen, Archivist of Dordrecht, part of which consisted of copies of 
a pedigree and other manuscripts relating to the de Carpentier family in possession 
of Jonkheer Coenen van Gravensloot, a descendant of the family, and the "Family 
Records" or "Family MSS.," frequently quoted, refer to such sources of information.

The following is a copy of a manuscript in possession 
of Jonkheer van Gravensloot : 

We, Servants of the Godly Word and Elders of the Congregation 
of followers of Christ at Yperen, witness to the truth of the fact that 
Roeland de Carpentier, Pensionary of this City, and Josyne van 
Hecke, his wife, are members of this our congregation, firm of faith 
and honest in the walks of life. We pray, therefore, that all brothers 
will view them in this light and receive them in their congregations. 
Done in our Church Council at Yperen this second day of April, 1584. 

By order of the Council,

We, Servants of the Word and Elders of the Reformed Church of 
Christ at Antwerp, witness: that Roeland Carpentier, Pensionary in 
the City of Yperen, and Sijnken (Josina), his wife, during the siege 
of said city has been deputized and sent here by his people and as

well at Yperen as here, during the time they have been with us have 
deported themselves as pious members of this congregation; which 
they have shown by knowledge of the faith, use of the Holy Sacra- 
ment and further with edifying conduct. We pray, therefore, that 
each and all brothers do acknowledge them as such and to show 
them all becoming Christian love. At Antwerp, January 7, 1585.

May 6, 1585, he was requested by the Magistracy of

Carpentarium and to the church of The Hague D. D. Jeremino Bas-

consequence, etc.

Art. 5. Caspar Bygarden. 

Caspar Bygarden has presented to the assembly a written protest 
in which he complains that his book was censured and condemned 
in the last Synod without his having been given a hearing in the 
matter and, as the said censure was recorded in the acts, that the 
same tends to a subtle privation of his ministry; to which the Synod 
graciously replied that it does not consider that his book has been 
censured as being heretical but only that it is not written in such a 
manner that it might be considered edifying to have it printed. Con- 
sidering that he did not clearly understand the same, Reynerus 
Donteclock, Johannes Audellius, Daniel Colonius and Rolandus 
Carpentarius have been appointed to examine his book and they 
have declared that they have found many impertinent, obscure and 
preposterous ideas in the aforesaid book, any of which tend suffi- 
ciently to error, etc.

By the contents of this present and public instrument to every 
one public notice to be given, that in the year after the birth of our 
dear Lord Jesus Christ, One Thousand six hundred and twenty- 
eight, on Thursday, the 17th day of the month of April between six 
and seven o'clock in the afternoon or thereabouts, before me, a Notary 
of the Court of Utrecht, and the subscribing witnesses as required, 
appeared in her own proper person the reputable Josina van Heck, 
widow of Roelant de Carpentier, of blessed memory, living in Utrecht 
and well known to me (a Notary) sitting up in bed, sick in body 
but in full and complete possession of her reason and faculties (we 
the Notary and subscribing witnesses not being aware of any- 
thing to the contrary). By the grace of God prudently and wisely 
bearing in mind, in contemplating the illness of men, that noth- 
ing here on earth is more certain than death and nothing more 
uncertain than the hour of death, and wishing to provide against 
her last day and that uncertain hour of death by ordaining testa- 
mentary dispositions of her temporal possessions (by the grace of 
God) has made by force of a certain open letter of grant, issued 
by the Court of Utrecht under date of the 16th of April, 1628 last, 
clearly exhibited to us, notary and subscribing witnesses, her testa- 
ment codicil and last will of all her possessions, real and personal, 
ordained and disposed, and makes, ordains and disposes of this in 
the form as follows: 

Commending her soul when it shall part from earth into the hands 
of God Almighty, and her body to a Christian burial, revoking further 
all preceding testamentary dispositions, codicils, gifts or other, made 
by her before the date of the making or passing of this in any way 
whatsoever, and disposing anew of her temporal possessions, the 
testatrix has willed and ordained, as she wills and ordains by this, 
that the collective children of Govert Gelisz, her son-in-law, begotten 
by Isabella de Carpentier, his wife deceased, daughter of testatrix, 
by the death of testatrix have and retain all such 600 Pounds Flemish 
which she, the testatrix, holds against the aforesaid Govert Gelisz, 
her son-in-law, by a rent obligation (Bond for Rent) instituting them 
heirs to this, willing and desiring that those children will for this at 
the death of their testatrix abstain from all of testatrix* further be- 
longings and inheritance. But if the same children should not be 
satisfied with this, but should say anything, or do or cause anything 
to be done against it, in such case the testatrix wills that they shall 
be excluded from and deprived of the said 600 Pounds Flemish, and 
will have to hold themselves satisfied with such legitimate share as 
by law out of the testatrix* possessions and inheritance is due, in 
this case instituting them the heirs to this legal share and no other 
part. Willing also that in this case the same children shall be charged 
out of the aforesaid legal share with all of the 300 Pounds Flemish 
which their mother, deceased daughter of testatrix, received at her

Further, testatrix bequeaths first to Pieter de Carpentier, her son r 
or his heirs if any, 300 Pounds Flemish, and this is an equivalent to 
the 300 Pounds Flemish which she gave to Jan de Carpentier, her 
son, and Isabella de Carpentier, her deceased daughter, each at their 
marriage, and in all of testatrix* other possessions, as well as of 
seigniory as of her own real and personal, such as remain after; debt 
by death, will, bequest and funeral expenses have been met. 

Testatrix has instituted and hereby institutes Pieter de Car- 
pentier, her son aforesaid, or his heirs born to him, in the one half, 
and the children collectively of Jan de Carpentier, her son, or their 
legitimate heirs born to them by representation in the parents' place 
if any had died before testatrix leaving heirs, in the other half, to be 
the sole universal heirs of testatrix. And all this preserving and 
reserving to the same Jan de Carpentier, her son, his legitimate 
share to pass to them under their legal title to the properties and 
inheritance of testatrix, free and unencumbered, he not profiting 

It is the will of the testatrix that this, her son, shall be debited 
against the aforesaid legitimate share of all which he has received at 
his marriage, and in every other way making this an express com- 

All that has been written the testatrix expressly declared to be 
her testament, codicil and last will, which she wills and desires to be 
fully carried into effect after her death, and that so far as it may not 
be in the proper form of a testament that it shall operate and have 
the effect of a codicil or last will, or as a donation because of death 
or otherwise, giving it the very best and most forcible interpretation, 
notwithstanding any impediments to the contrary because of con- 
stitutional, state or other provisions, and notwithstanding any proper 
solemnities or rights as required may not have been followed or 
entertained. Reserving, however, to the testatrix full power and 
authority to totally or partially repeal, change, increase or diminish 
this, her testament, codicil and last will as often and as frequently 
as she desires and wishes to. At the end of which she stipulated and 
requested me, the public notary, to make and deliver to her one or 
more instruments in the best form.

That Anthonis Blonck, brewer, citizen of this City, appeared before 
us in re sale to Johan de Carpentier, merchant and citizen of the same 
city, of an entire house, brewery and grounds with all appurtenances 
thereof together with all permanent fixtures, situated on Wynstraad

1705. Mercedes d'Honneur et de Noblesse dans le 
duch6 de Brabant, No. 42: 

Jean Hellincx, lord of the Fief of Sibbe, native and resident of the 
city of Antwerp. 

He represented that his family should be accounted from the 
country and city of Liege where it descended from the most honorable 
and principal, as much on account of its prominence as the many 
illustrious and noble alliances by marriage it had made there from 
time to time, bearing the coat of arms: un escu, d'or a Vours debout 
de sable, escartelU d'argent, a une face d'azur, accompagnie de trots 
saultoirs de gueulles; Uescu surmonU d*un Timbre d'argent griXU et 
lisert d'or aux Lambrequins et Bourlet d'or et de sable; cimier un 
ours naissant de Vescu, and, having established himself at Antwerp, 
where he had married Marguerite van Colen of an ancient and noble 
family of Germany, having always proved very zealous in the Holy 
Catholic and Apostolic Faith and the Royal service, maintaining 
soldiers at his own expense, and although offered the office of Grand 
Almoner, he preferred to continue his residence in the aforesaid city 
in greater style and with the same arms that his family had borne 
for three successive generations. 

King Charles II. ennobled him to bear the aforesaid blazonry by 
Letters Patent executed at Madrid October 6, 1689. 

We, the Burgomaster of the noble City of Liege, to all whom it 
may concern, Greeting: This will be certification and attestation, 
as is required by Sr. Jean Hellincx at present residing at Antwerp, 
who wishes to receive our letters testimonial in regard to the rank 
and deportment of his parents and predecessors who have lived in 
our aforesaid Town and City of Liege. To which complying favor- 
ably and wishing to administer justice to each and all whenever re- 
quired, we certify and attest immediately to the information con- 
tained and by us seen in various documents in the form of letters 
produced before us to this effect: The late Sr. Servais Hellincx, great- 
grandfather of the suppliant seigneur, one of the Maltres des Forges 
and most important manufacturers in the City of Liege, was in pos- 
session and Lord of a very old fief at Cibbe with right of the patronage

was moreover Lieutenant Captain of the Old Crossbowmen (Vieux 
Arbalestiers) under Monsieur le Comte de Waroux from the year 
1 613 to the time of \ his Highness Ferdinand de Baviere, Bishop and 
Prince of Liege. We further certify that the Sr. Servais Hellincx, 
son and grandson respectively of the Seigneurs above mentioned 
and father of the same suppliant was in like manner Matstre and 
Seigneur of the same fief, that family having been and being reputed 
among the most honorable and most important of our city as much 
by reason of the magnificence in which it lived as by reason of several 
very important and noble alliances which it made from time to time 
in aforesaid city. Wherefore we require that each and all shall 
believe herein.

Clerk and under seal of the said city the 14th day of May in the year

She was born at Yselstein, March 1, 1610. They appear 
to have resided at Yselstein. In her will she mentions 
her sisters Maria, Cecilia, Alidt and Anna van Lienden; 
also her husband Johan de Carpentier. Prior to her 
marriage to the latter, she had married first, Captain 
Godefroy Deurschot, second, Aelbert Vorsterman at 
Dordrecht, Johan de Carpentier being her third husband. 

The following is a copy of her will: 

In the name of the Lord Amen. 

From the contents of this present manifest deed it is properly 
evident and manifest that in the year after the birth of our Dear 
Lord Jesus Christ one-thousand six-hundred and forty-nine, on the 
XIX of the month of May between eleven and XII o'clock in the 
forenoon or there about, in my office as public notary, admitted by 
the Noble Court of Utrecht and with the signed certificate present 
as is required, there appeared in her proper person Maria van 
Lienden, wife of Johan de Carpentier residing at Yelsteyn, known 
by me, the notary, as being sound of body, alive and well, and in full 
possession of her mental faculties and reason as was plainly apparent 
to us. 

And declared that she, having observed and meditated upon the 
various human illnesses and that here upon earth nothing was more 
certain than death and nothing more uncertain than the hour of the 
same, to prepare for and anticipate the said hour had the last will and 
testament of all her goods without exceptions made in the form here- 
after following: 

First of all charging that when her soul shall have left this earth 
and is in the hands of God Almighty that her body shall receive 
Christian burial. Further revoking all former testamentary depo- 
sitions which have been made or filed before this date with the excep- 
tion of the reciprocal usufruct made between her and her husband 
which she holds of full value and still approves with this. 

And making deposition anew regarding her temporal goods, she, 
the testatrix, bequeathed to Maria van Lienden, her eldest sister, 
wife of Adriaen Ockers, residing at Culenburch, or her heirs in case of 
her death, the sum of six guilders. 

Item. To the children of Cecilia van Lienden, her deceased sister, 
former wife of Cornells Vinck, also six guilders. And to the child of 

Digitized by 



Alidt van Lienden, also her deceased sister, who was wife of Jacob 
van Mynden also six Carolus guilders. 

And of all the other property of the said testatrix, real and personal, 
actual and owing to her estate, which may remain after the payment 
of her funeral expenses, just debts, testament bequests aforesaid and 
her funeral services, she has instituted and institutes herewith that at 
the expiration of the aforesaid usufruct her sole and universal heirs 
shall be: Albert Vosterman and Anna van Lienden, married people, 
her brother-in-law and sister residing at Dordrecht, with the under- 
standing and express stipulation that in case of the death of both 
the aforesaid, all of the same estate shall have to succeed and go to 
the children who may be borne of and survive the aforesaid couple, 
and to Godefroy Deurschot, Anna van Lienden's child by a former 

And in case they leave no children resulting from the said marriage 
the said Godefroy Deurschot is with this constituted sole heir. 

All of which the said testatrix declared to be her absolute will and 
testament, which she wished should be executed absolutely upon her 
death. Such being according to all laws or customs which may be in 
force at Iselsteyn or elsewhere even if all solemnities (forms) required 
in this according to law were not observed nor maintained as should 
be, the same being considered as inserted, except as she, the appearer, 
may add hereto such revocation and alteration as may please her. 
Requesting that one or more properly executed deeds hereof be dis- 
patched and delivered.

1630 Mayus. 

On the 17th arrived there the ship "Ark of Noah" from the Board 
of Commerce of Amsterdam, and on the following day left the General 
Loncs with the ships Amsterdam, Utrecht, Hollandia, Munnickendam, 
Amersfoort, Provincie van Utrecht, the Zeeland Galley, the Eendracht, 
and the Yacht den Oyevaer, upon which were 599 men, and steering 
his course right for the Fatherland. His political advisers, who after 
departure of the General had full supervision, had resolved the follow- 
ing day that the Admiral Pieter Adriaenss Ita should sail for the 
West Indies with ten ships for the purpose of meeting the common 
enemy. During the succeeding days the utmost diligence was resorted 
to to prepare the vessels therefor selected. When the Admiral, 
besides the political adviser Servatius Carpentier, had left the forti- 
fication on the 14th for the City for the purpose of taking leave from 
the advisers and military heads, and the following day with a convoy 
of ninety soldiers under the command of Captain Daye. Returning 
to the fortification it so happened that just outside of the range of 
the Port situated below the City, they experienced a great rainstorm 
which extinguished the fuses and wet the muskets. The enemy 
hidden on the other side of the River in ambush seeing this immedi- 
ately crossed over, in consequence of which our people, so surprised, 
lost their courage. The Admiral and Captain did their utmost to 
steady them, but as the Brazilian enemy fired their arrows among 
them, and as they could not use their muskets, our people could not 
be held and fled without looking around. The Admiral, exposed to 
the greatest danger, defended himself courageously, but seeing that 
the men abandoned him and the enemy gathered strength, retreated 
to the City and would have been in a bad plight had not the Colonel 
and the other officers, with their men, come to the rescue, compell- 
ing the enemy to retreat. We lost thirty men, among which were 
two lieutenants and four ship clerks and the hospital assistant. The 
day after the Admiral returned with a boat to the fortification. 

Page 249: 

The majority determined that we should attack Pariba, and 
conquer the Port situated near the harbor to prevent the entering 
or leaving of vessels. For this exploit they selected the Lieutenant 
Commander Steyn Callenfels, and the political advisers Carpentier 
and van der Hagen were to accompany him. It was arranged to 
add thirteen companies, making altogether about 1600 men. 

The first of December was appointed a day to offer prayers to 
God Almighty that he would bless the intended exploit.

They were afraid that considering the season of the year the 
ships might get on shore on the coast if they went to the north of 
Pariba, and in consequence of the foregoing resolution the gentlemen 
who started on the voyage on the 2nd day of December received 
orders that the bulk of the force should not go north of Pariba; but 
if advice was received from Rio Grande, or any other place, that 
apparently it was possible to accomplish something, then in that 
case they might send something like 150 men. But full authority 
was given to undertake whatever was possible south of Pariba in 
their judgment. On the 3rd they sailed at daylight, and the next 
day found themselves at daylight abreast of Tamarica, and before 
noon the Admiral signalled that all captains of land and water forces 
should come on board of his ship. It was the political adviser Car- 
pentier who was the first to move a resolution to undertake the 
attack on Pariba, and after each one had declared to be ready and 
to have the courage therefor, two things were deliberated for the 
purpose of attacking the enemy unnoticed. First, how it would be 
best to land; and secondly, how to land the troops in good order.

Voyage to Rio Grande under Commander Smient. The same 
leaders and the advisers who had been before on the voyage to Pariba 
went along. . 

On the 25th (December) the political adviser Carpentier, the 
Admiral, the Major Bersteth, and some other naval and land captains, 
besides the engineer Pieter van Bueren, departed with ttye boats 
towards the shore and examined the entire coast between Punta de 
Marchena to Rio Grande, but found nowheres a location to 

Then the political adviser Carpentier advised that they enter the 
River and land above the Fort, but all the naval captains found 
great objections to this because they were afraid that one of the other 
ships might be fired at and sunk. For this reason it was finally 
decided that it was inadvisable to make an attack on the Fort of 
Rio Grande.

Resolved to attack Cabo St. Augustine. Everything being ready 
for the trip the Governor, the political advisers Carpentier and de 
Walbeeck, the Admiral, the lieutenant commander Steyn Callenfels 
left at night with 18 vessels, having on board 14 companies of soldiers. 
They arrived about midnight in the neighborhood of de Cabo, and 
here they encountered another five vessels cruising about there. 
The next morning before day they anchored, and the troops being 
ready the Governor and lieutenant commander, besides the advisers

and were landed with the military power. (The attack on de Cabo 
was unsuccessful.)

Voyage to Goyana. 

It was necessary to make the River Goyana unfit for use by the 
enemy, which in addition to the Quartier was all that remained to 
him now the Yacht Canari voghel was ordered there with forty men 
to lay to in the mouth of the river. The next day it was learned from 
Portugees of that place that the enemy had removed the women; 
that there was a house in which there were 13 cases of sugar; and 
that the enemy's boat lay near hidden under water; in consequence 
of which on the following day several boats with the Company van 
Garstman and forty musketeers of Major Tourlon, while at the same 
time the day before 50 men had been sent to the sugar mill mentioned 
before for the purpose of reconnoitering what the enemy was doing 
there, and also to see whether they could catch anything on the road 
which leads to Pariba and Goyana and Garasu and the Arryal. 

Mr. van Ceulen, the colonel, and Carpentier followed in a small 
vessel, and having arrived at the pass or road which leads to the 
Ingenio River, they there encountered the troops who communicated 
the fact that they had found no one and had only heard that cattle 
was grazing in the neighborhood, which they had not been able to 
find yet, and they were commanded to search further.

The voyage to Pariba having been decided on, and everything 
for naval as well as for land purposes having been provided with fore- 
thought, it was undertaken on the 24th of November under the 
Commander of Cigismundus van Schuppe, besides Colonel Christoffel 
Artichofski and the two political advisers Servaes Carpentier and 
Jacob Stachouver. (Pariba and the Ports were captured.)

Rev. Casparus de Carpentier died at Amsterdam, 
May 1 2, 1667, and was buried May 1 7th in the Westerkerk 
of that city. 

He is mentioned in all printed works as having been 
born in 1607, which is to be attributed to a wrong reading 
of the inscription under one of his portraits, saying 
" 1650, aetate 43," the year 1650 merely indicating the 
date of his arrival at Amsterdam. On another portrait, 
however, is said " aetate 39," and van Bemmel, in his 
description of the City of Amersfoort, says that he died 
51 years old. 

He wrote a poem for the book of his father-in-law, 
Rev. Petrus Wassenburg, " Dancing feast of the daughters 
of Shiloh, served with a piquant sauce out of God's 
Word" (Commission of the Walloon Churches, Library 
of the Society of Dutch Literature at Leiden); "The

Rev. Roblandus Carpentier: 

1674, April 9th. 
Rev. Visscherus, Dep. at Caucas Maritimas, stated 
that the Honorable Councilors of the Admiralty, had called 
before them the Deputies of this Classis on certain affairs, 
and made known to them that it was the desire of their 
Honors, that there might be called by this Classis a 
minister for the ship of his excellency, Rear Admiral 
(Schout by nacht) Engel de Ruyter. There was par- 
ticularly recommended for this position, Rev. Roelandus 
Carpentier, a candidate of this Classis, who appeared 
before the Assembly and was asked whether he was 
disposed to be employed as a minister on the National 
fleet. He showed himself willing, if such a call were 
made out for him, to accept it in the fear of the Lord. 
Whereupon after he had preached a sermon in the presence 
of the Assembly on the words of Paul in Rom. 8: 31, 
" If God be for us, who can be against us?" he was unani- 
mously called by the Classis to the aforesaid service. 
And having been statUe Classi examined on the principal 

Digitized by 



articles of the Christian religion, in so far as could be done, 
on account of the shortness of the time, he gave such 
satisfaction that he was ordained to the Sacred Ministry, 
in the name of the Lord, with the laying on of hands. 
The Depp. ad. caus. Man ti mas, will furnish him with 
the proper papers in the premises. VII. 81. XIX. 168.

1674, Oct. 8th. 

Rev. Roelandus Carpentier was conducted into the 
room, commissioned as preacher in the navy by this 
body, on board the ship of Mr. Engel de Ruyter, Rear 
Admiral, and gave to the Assembly an account and report 
of his work. He handed in also a good testimonial re- 
garding his labors and deportment on board the afore- 
said ship, with the request that he may remain under 
favorable recommendation, with a view to his pro- 
motion. The Assembly received this notice favorably, 
and on occasion, his advancement shall be kept in mind. 
VII. 104. 

According to Van der Aa's Biographical Dictionary. 

He became Minister in 1662, and served as such in 
1679, with the Embassy to Moscow; having returned 
from there he became in 1680 Minister at Scharwoude 
(Classis of Hoorn) where he died in 1682. He must 
have been a student of the Low German art of poetry, 
though we have been unable to discover any of the prints 
of his pen (see Bilderdijck "Geschied des Vaderl," vol. 
XI, page 281: "Algem, Konst. en Letterb. 1843," v °l-

He was buried in the Westerkerk.

Elizabeth van den Heuvel, wife of Johannes Carpentier, minister 
at Barendrecht, died the latter part of 1660 or in 1661. After his 
death she published various little works by her husband, and made 
herself known as a poetess by poems which were printed in the front 
of books and in collections of miscellaneous poems published between 
1660-1670, such as in the "Herstelde Zeeg-Triumf van Karel den 
tweede," Dordrecht, 1660. "De Vorstelijke Eeretrap" 4 , pub- 
lished in 1689, is apparently by her.

Carpentier, and was born June 2, 1591. He, who in 1641 and 1642 
was counsel, and in 1645, 1646 and 1652 justice of the city of Dord-

delegated to the assembly of the States (Heeren Staten) of Holland 
and West Friesland. Carpentier died December 17, 1672, and had 
married on July 9, 1642 (1614), Maria de Witt, widow of Hendrick

Roeland de Carpentier, was Raad in de Vroedschap (Member of 
the Town Council) and Justice of the city of Dordrecht, besides 
which, he was inspector of schools and of the City Library, also first 
dean of the brotherhood of St. Pieter, and lastly Director of the West 
India Company. He was frequently deputy to the Assembly of the 
States of Holland and Priesland. He died April 26, 1660 (1670), 
and had been married three times. His first wife was : Sara Leysten, 
by whom he had three sons, among whom, Pieter de Carpentier, 
born April 18, 1651, was Honorable or "Mansman" of the Court 
and High Tribunal of South Holland in 1674. By his second wife, 
Lucia Repelaar, widow of Waltherus Kools, he had one son and one 
daughter. His third wife, Josina Sonnemaus, presented him with 
one son and two daughters. 

He was a student of the sciences, a lover of poetry, and left many 
loose poems both in Latin and Dutch, which were greatly commended 
in his time, though they would, at present, only have placed him 
among the indifferent poets. No properly spoken collection of 
his poems exists, though between the years 1640 and 1670, few works 
were printed in Dordrecht in which one does not find poems by his 

Privately printed by him is:

Auriacae, quae Bredae est, auditorio majori, die 27 Martii 1647. 
Bredae ex officina Johannis a Waesberge illustris scholae ac Collegii 
Auriaci Typographic Jurati. 

For his celebrity, however, he is more indebted to his trans- 
lation of the Verhaelboecken van de Vereenig de Landschappen van 
Nederland van den Kardinael Bentivoglio. Rotterdam, 1648, 12 . 

He must also have published:

Pieter de Carpentier. Van der Aa's Biog. Die, 
vol. Ill, page 200: 

Pieter de Carpentier, the younger, was the fifth Governor of the 
Dutch Indies. Of his early life little or no particular mention is made. 41 
It is only known that he was born in or about 1588 and was a native 
of Amsterdam (other references say Antwerp). He must also have 
been a man of no mean origin as he was invested in the year 16 16 
with the important office of Chief Factor of the ship " de Getrouwheid " 
sailing for India. Having spent two years in India he was appointed 
Counsel Ordinary and Director General of Commerce by Governor 
Jan Pieterszoon Koen, at the time Governor of Dutch India. In 
this position he displayed great ability to the decided advantage of 
the Company, in consequence of which he was proposed by Koen 
to the Directors of the East India Company as his successor whom 
in 1623 he succedeed. 

The well known conspiracy of the English at Amboina made it very 
unpleasant for Carpentier during the early part of his administration 
and caused far reaching bitterness, both in India and Europe, between 
the two nations. 

Under the supreme direction of Carpentier, two expeditions sent 
out by Koen a short time previous in 1623 discovered the Gulf of 
Carpentier, so named after Carpentier. 

* The parentage of Pieter de Carpentier, the Governor-General, has not been ascer- 
tained, although there would seem to be no doubt of his belonging to the Dordrecht 
family, as he bore the same arms.

In the following year the Dutch took possession of the important 
island Tayouan or Formosa. The commercial interests with Ceylon 
and the main land of India were also constantly increasing, and in 
1626 a favorable alliance was made with the ruler of Malabar. 

After having served his office with great credit for four years and 
eight months, Carpentier transferred the same September 30, 1627, 
to his predecessor, Jan Pieterszoon Koen, who had returned to 
Batavia on the 27th of September. 

Thereupon he left on the 12th of November (1627) with four 
richly laden vessels for the Fatherland, where he arrived June 3, 1628, 
and made a very favorable report to the Directors of what had taken 
place during his administration. In consideration of his zeal in 
advancing the interests of the Company, he was presented by the 
Directors, besides his salary with 10,000 guilders, a gold chain and 
medal to the value of 2000 guilders, and a sword valued at 400 guilders. 

In October of the following year he was elected Director of the 
East India Company at the Amsterdam Chamber, which distinguished 
post he filled until his death which took place Sept. 5, 1659. 

In 1630, the first year in which he occupied the office of Director, 
he was sent to England as authorized deputy for the mediation of 
the previously mentioned Amboinan differences. While he was thus 
engaged in London, the Directors were constantly and strongly 
urging him to again accept the Governorship of Batavia, but, in 
spite of the fact that much fame and profit would accrue to him in 
this office, he persistently declined the offer. 

Carpentier was quite tall of stature, and had heavy hair and 
beard, thick moustache, brownish eyes; was fair and of ruddy com- 
plexion and had a pointed chin. When he returned to the Fatherland 
he was 40 years of age. 

He was frequently attired in a yellow coat with a band, over 
which he wore a black cloak, so that from outward appearance he 
bore more resemblance to a minister than a merchant. His portrait 
was painted by Valentyn who added the following inscription: 

De vorstelijke koets der Ooster-Maatschappy, 

De guide toom van die bekommerlyke wagen, 

Ten deel door hem gemaakt, die waardig was te dragen 

Die naam, en 00k 't bestier de rossen in de Ley 

Van Indian, wierd aan de Carpentier bevolen,

His portrait appears in du Bois Vies des Gouvern. G£n6raux.
