Nationality/school
South Netherlandish
Born
Hulst (Zeeland) 1584
c. 1584; Cornelis' birthday is unknown. In an archival document of 29 April 1604 it is mentioned that Cornelis is 20 years old. In a different document of 3 August 1635 he is listed as being 50 years old. From this we can deduce that Cornelis must have been born around 1584 (Van der Stighelen 1991, p. 88).
