Jan Hals (I)

painter, draftsman
North Netherlandish
Haarlem 1620
c. 1620. According to Van Thiel-Stroman he was born between 1618 and 1623: 16 May 1618 his brother Frans II was christened, and on 21 July 1623 his sister Adriaentgen.
Haarlem 1654
ca. 1654. According to van Thiel-Stroman 2006 Jan and his wife Sara died before 1654, since after 1654 there are no more documents concerning them; on 11 November 1654 the two children of the couple were admitted to the orphanage. On June 11, 1674, one of these children named Jan was buried, which Van der Willigen erroneously mistook as the funeral date of the father.
