Born

c. 1623-1624 (he was 35 years old on 5 March 1658; on 4 April of the same year, however, he indicated to be 34, see Bredius 1921). Although it is assumed in older literature (Von Wurzbach 1906-1911) that he was born in Amsterdam, there is no proof nor indication for this.

buried in the Westerkerk on 31 August 1664, coming from the Rozengracht (Jaap van der Veen in De Beer et al. 2019, p. 711). His widow remarried in 1667 to Dirck van Helm (died 1672), commissioner of the Utrecht Ferry Service (Bredius 1915-1921).
Family relationships
this field records any family relationship to one or more other artist(s).
He married Maria Jansdr. Mosijn (died after 1682) from Bruges, sister of the engraver Michiel Mosijn with whom he worked together (Catherine Levesque in The Illustrated Bartsch, commentary 1986). On 6 April 1653 they had a daughter Neeltjen baptized in the Nieuwe Kerk in Amsterdam (in The Illustrated Bartsch 1986, Holstein 2001 and Saur 2016 wrongly indicated as their wedding date, R. van Leeuwen, June 2019). On 26 January 1655 a daughter Lijsbeth was baptized in the Nieuwe Kerk (names of the parents: Reijer Seeman and Maddeleentje Seeman, DTB 43, p. 295, R. van Leeuwen, June 2019). His widow posted banns with Dirck van den Helm on 25 November 1667 (DTB 491, p. 142); they married on 9 December 1667 (Bredius 1921). Zeeman was the stepfather of the sculptor Abraham van der Plas (J. van der Veen in De Beer et al. 2019, p. 909, note 8).
