Family relationships
this field records any family relationship to one or more other artist(s).
Possibly the son of Jacob Roelofsz. de Vries, bachelor in Haarlem, 18 years old in December 1626 (RKD notities Bredius) Ecartico calls his father Jan de Vries, with question mark. Roelof Jansz. is also erroneously called Jan Regnier/Reynier de Vries . On 11 October 1659 he posted banns at 28 with Marytje Adriaens from Haarlem. His witnesses were Reynier Hals, son of Frans and his 2nd wife (De Vries 1886). He mingled with a couple of other painters socially apart from Reynier, like Egbert van Heemskerck and a certain Leendert de Laeff (Jager 2016) and Roelof de Vries, Pieter de Nijs, Jan Theunisz. Blanckerhoff, Johan Hackaert and Aert van der Neer. it seems that they were often implicated in brawls, sometimes with serious wounding (Van Thiel-Stroman 2006, p. 188)
