grandfather Thonis Phillips Leeuwenhoek (-1643) made a will

Date: 
April 2, 1643

A month before he died, grandfather Thonis Phillips Leeuwenhoek (-1643) made a will. He bequeathed multiple properties (E0073, E0079) on Oosteinde and (A0985 - A0991) outside Oostpoort on what is now Dr. Schaepmanstraat to uncle Huijch Thonis Leeuwenhoek. He bequeathed 4,000 g to father Philips Thonis Leeuwenehoek's (-1638) four children, including Antony, to be paid when they came of age. The bequest to Huijch, a basketmaker, included the basket making business that Thonis Philips had developed in the Oosteinde house. The bequest to Antony and his siblings was worth much less.
