Familierelaties

Son of the Catholic bailiff Willem Jansz de Wet and Maritge Jacobsdr. His brother Gerrit (†1674) was also a painter; Jacob married Maria Jochemsdr van Woubrugge on 20 May 1635, which marriage remained childless. Maria's date of death is unknown; on 12 May 1639 Jacob married a second time, to Maria Jabosdr. from Diemen. They had five children, the eldest of which, Jacob II, also became a painter. Maria died in July 1671 and was burried in the Grote Kerk (based on Van Thiel-Stroman in Biesboer/Köhler et al. 2006).

    mentioned as member of the Guild in September 1677. Van Meurs 1900 assumes that this is Jacob II. Merlo 1850 thinks that it is one of the two sons of a (further unknown) painter Jan de Wet from Cologne. Thieme/Becker does not mention the Cologne episode. Gerson 1942/1983 does not specify which Dutch artist it could be (p. 243, note 5). It probably concerns Jacob de Wet I, as he was 'abroad' after 1675 (Biesboer/Köhler et al. 2006). The fact that the catholic painter Jacob de Wet I left Haarlem shortly after the 'Rampjaar 1672', which for catholics was certainly a disaster due to the puritan/protestant takeover of the city government (the 'Alteratie'), makes his departure for catholic Cologne very plausible (J. Kosten 2017-02). According to Jager 2016, the mention of a Jacob de Wet in Cologne cannot refer to Jacob II, as he was at work in Scotland at the time. It can be Jacob I, as he had given somebody his power of attorney , because he was planning to be out of the country ('alsoo hij van meeninge was uytlandich te reysen')
