Family relationships
this field records any family relationship to one or more other artist(s).
Son of the silversmith Cornelis Alexandersz. de Bie and Catharina Hendricksdr. ten Oever, an aunt of the artist Hendrick ten Oever from Zwolle; he is therefore not to be confused with the author of the Southern Netherlands of 'Het gulden cabinet vande edele vry schilder const' (Antwerp 1661). His father died between January (when he held a daughter Janneken over the font) and August 1630 (when his widow posted banns with (another) silversmith: there are more silversmiths in the family: Sara de Bie, sister of Cornelis Alexdersz. was married in 1638 with Jan Lutma). De Bie baptized a daughter Sara on 23 March 1663. Mother Maria died in 1654. On 8 August 1664 De Bie made his will, appointing his only daughter, 11 year old Sara his sole heir. His exact date of death is unknown: he was buried on 12 August. His daughter Sara followed him on 23 August in the grave. His mother in law received the inheritance and payed the death-duties (Jager 2016).
