Notes Francis James Cochius (died. 1669), was the rector at the gymnasium in Harderwijk, and later the professor in practical philosophy and eloquence at the high school there. He held these posts until 1647, when he resigned as the rector and became professor of medicine. At the same time he was city physician. He was retained as Professor Ordinarius in practical philosophy for 6 years.

Crispijn de Passe the younger (c.1594 – 1670) was a engraver, the son of Crispijn de Passe I (q.v.); born in Cologne and followed his father to Utrecht. From 1617-18 he spent much time in Paris, where he worked on Pluvinal's 'Maneige Royal', returning to Utrecht in 1629. After his father's death in 1637, he moved to Amsterdam taking the family firm with him. From the 1640s he increasingly became interested in publishing broadsides and in 1665/1666 he was questioned by the government for the pro-Orange broadside "Sinne-Beeld.Ter eeren van Sijn Doorluchtighste Hoogheyt Wilhem de III. Prins van Oranjen". In last years he suffered from insanity.
