Biographical synthesis

Adrian Valzolio de Jonge (alt. the younger) (b. ca. 1630; d. 1687). Merchant.

Living in George Bosschaert's house in Antwerp as cashier in 1653. He had been at Cadiz in 1652 "at the time of the said lading being imployed thither from Antwerp by the said Boschaert to looke after his businesse there"[1]; "a Brabanter by birth, borne at Loven, and liveth at Antwerp with Mr Boschaert"[2]

Adrian Valzolio de Jonge lived with George Boscaert "about six yeares last" (as of April 1653), including four years with him in Spain.[3]

Adrian Valzolio calls himself "the younger" in a deposition of March 29th 1653 on behalf of George Boscaert for his plate and silver in the Morning Star[4]

Evidence from High Court of Admiralty

Twenty-four year old Adrian Valzolio de Jonge deposed June 14th 1653 in the High Court of Admiralty. He deposed in support of Jan Boschaert in "The claime of the said Boscaert for his silver in the Saint John Evangelist.[5]

Adrian Valzolio de Jonge deposed again two days later on or after June 16th 1653 in the High Court of Admiralty. In this case he deposed in support of Jacques Pinquet in "The claime of the said Jaques Pinquet for his silver in the Sampson Salvador and Saint George[6]

Comment on sources

There is evidence of a Valzolio family of Louvain (Leuven) in the early and mid-C17th, which, given Adrian Valzolio the younger's stated birth place of Loven (i.e. Leuven), may be his family. The reference includes mention of a Jean Baptiste Valzolio, married to Marie Adriani, daughter of Adrien "dit Adriani" "mort le 19 Janvier 1644". The source, which dates from 1720, states "Cette Famille de Valzolio tire son origine de Turin, Capitale du Piémont. Un certificat des Rois d'Armes de Brabant du mois d'Août 1678, nous apprend qu'elle est tres-ancienne & reputée pour noble, par les alliances qu'elles a faites avec les Famille di Vischa, di Monte, di Giodda, di Lomelli, &c.".[7]

The Valzolio family archive is located in Archives de l'Etat à Liège.[8]

An interesting record exists in the Archivo General de Indias in Seville of an "Adrián Vauseul de Valzolio" from 1642. The archival metadata state: "Expediente de información y licencia de pasajero a Indias de Adrián Vauseul de Valzolio, mercader, natural de Lovaina, hijo de Huberto y de Ana Logier, con su cajero Nicolás Naquens, natural de Amberes (Bélgica), hijo de Juan Naquens y de Magdalena Namones, a Nueva España. Incluye copia registro de mercaderías."[9]

This Archivo General de Indias record identifying Adrian Valzolio's parents as Hubert and Anne Logier matches to modern genealogical data, which give Hubert Valzolio "banquier" (b.1550, Poirino, Piedmont, d.?) and Anne Logier (b.1555, d.1616), and having seven children, the seventh being Adrian (b.1601, Valenciennes, d.?).[10] The same genealogical source does not identify a son Adrian of Adrian Valzolio (b.1601, d.?). However, one of Adrian's brothers, Jérôme Valzolio (b. 1589, Valenciennes, d.1660) is shown as having twelve children, including a son "Adrien Valzolio" (b.1630, d.?).[11]

A further Spanish record in the same Archivo General de Indias, from 1656, may refer to Adrian Valzolio the younger. The archival metadata state "-Número 2.- Autos del año 1656. En 4 ramos:... 3. Autos de Adrián Vauseul de Valzolio, flamenco, con el prior y cónsules de Sevilla, sobre que le abone la cantidad con que sirvió al Rey por su carta de naturaleza, que se suspendió, a petición del Consulado."[12]
