In 1586 Rooelant Volster was the baptism witness for Elizabeth, the daughter of Jaques Chrijstal and Elisabeth Nannes. This Jaques, under other spellings such as Jakis Krisstal and Jakis Muer, was a captain of an army in which several men were married in Enkhuizen in 1577 and 1584 to 1587. His name would indicate he was a Huguenot from France or Belgium. And since Roelant is mentioned here 2 years after he ended his time as a captain in the international army, it’s clear he still lived here and had some kind of important position.
