(1) Duifhuis served as Catholic pastor of the Jacobskerk between 1574 and 1578.

(2) Utrecht borrowed Helmichius's services from the Dutch refugee church in Frankfurt for part of 1578.

(3) Facing certain, dismissal, Modetus fled the city in autumn 1588; his formal dismissal came in Feb. 1589.

(4) The appointment of Van Zeist, whom the consistorials called Abbot of Oostbroeck and Father of Klare Water, occurred without the formal approval of consistory, congregation, or city council, so that its status was always unclear; said by one magistrate to be appointed ‘provisionally’, Van Zeist was at his own request ‘granted leave’ (veroorloft) in 1601. ARA, OSA 73, i. 33, 68, 95.

(5) Son of Henricus Caesarius.

(6) Appointed by consistory and magistracy in 1607, Bruno was not formally invested in office until 3 Jan. 1608.
