Cornelia Jacobs van den Berch

aunt Cornelia
Burial date: 
September 15, 1667

When they married in 1634, Cornelia lived in Delft and Elsevier lived in Rotterdam. After their marriage, they lived on the east side of the Verwersdijk.

Symon was from the Leiden publishing family, son of painter Aernout Elsevier. Symon was Capiteijn van de Peuijeniers, and died in 1644 (DTB 39, p.6).

Ten years later, the house was severely damaged when the gunpowder depot blew up. Cornelia, Elsevier's widow, made several claims for damages and received hundreds of guilders as compensation.
