Dirk Stoop is not listed in the death registers of Utrecht until 1725; it is quite likely that he died in Hamburg. As he was officially granted to work in Hamburg in 1681, it seems logical he stayed there. Other sources presume (whithout reason) that he died in Utrecht, in 1686 (Wurzbach), or after 1681 (Thieme/Becker) (R. van Leeuwen, March 2019).
