Chapter Summary

This appendix section of the book titled The Same but Different?: Inter-cultural Trade and the Sephardim, 1595-1640 presents the Dutch signatories of the 1602 petition and their relationships with Sephardic merchants. The examination of available notarial documentation from Amsterdam evidences that over half of the signatories had documented business dealings- and often multiple dealings over many years-with Sephardic merchants in Amsterdam. This petition is one of many discrete pieces of evidence that point to a potent truth ignored by traditional histories of early modern trade and trade networks, namely that trade, and the networks constructed for the pursuit of this trade, were far more fluid and open to merchants of varying backgrounds than has heretofore been admitted.

Keywords:Amsterdam; Dutch signatories; inter-cultural trade; Sephardic merchants
