DTB Delft inv. 49, folio 182
Arnold Ramp's first wife Cornelia was from from 's-Gravenhage. When they married in 1683, he lived on Oude Delft. When one of their children died in 1687, they lived on Papestraat. Three years later, when Cornelia died, probably from complications of giving birth to Adriaan two weeks earlier, they lived on Voldersgracht. Ramp purchased the house from Anna Cocx, who was buried on March 4, 1689, widow of notary Govert Rota, who had died in 1660. At the sale, Ramp was reizende bode and a note says in 1701 is zijn beroep kamerbewaarder van de raad- en schepenkamer, which probably added when the house sold, date unknown, to Anna van Gijsen.
By 1711 until the end of his life in 1734, he lived in Choorstraat 49 (C250). Pieter de Molijn had the house before 1648, but no confirmation that he was related to the de Molijn family that Leeuwenhoek's sister married into. Pieter de Molijn is listed as a widower living on Choorstraat when he married in 1627. He paid the 1585-1648 huizenprotocol 142v1, the 1620-1632 verponding 106v4 and the 1632-1654 verponding 110v4. In both 1710 and 1711, he bid unsuccessfully on houses across the street on the north side of Choorstraat.
He was buried in the Nieuwe Kerk in a grave with six minor children.
Arnold Ramp appears in a lot of the online documents, several of them involving ships of the East India Company, others involving people who died owing him money. As one of the City's curators, he was involved in a number of estates. He was also an executor of several wills.
Below are those that specify his occupations. Willem Broccart, Cornelis van der Sleyden, Adriaen Hoppesteijn Van Leeuwen, and Jan de Bries were the notaries.
