Sample text

This success in bulk trades developed independently of Antwerp’s problems. Nevertheless, Antwerp’s decline eventually did benefit Amsterdam through immigration. In the first decades of the seventeenth century, Portuguese merchants in Antwerp began to move—in ever increasing numbers—into the northern Netherlands, especially to Amsterdam. Partly as a result of this relocation of human capital, Amsterdam showed a clear advantage as a location from which to trade with the Iberian Peninsula, particularly during the Twelve-Year Truce.

Peter Stabel, Bruno Blondé, and Anke Greve (Apeldoorn: Garant, 2000), 228–30. Gelderblom echoes Jan de Vries and Ad van der Woude in believing that Amsterdam’s rise was a result of its own maturation, independent of the chaos in Antwerp in the last two decades of the seventeenth century. As Gelderblom indicates, by the time Parma took Antwerp, 100 merchants from the southern Low Countries had already settled in Amsterdam. Between 1578 and 1630, over 400 such merchant families immigrated to Amsterdam.

46 Commodities moved in English, Portuguese and Italian ships, and distinctions about the origins of the merchant capital spawning these voyages were often unclear. 47 The volume of the trade in the fifteenth century waxed and waned according to political circumstances, but in busy years a dozen or so ships from Portugal might visit English harbors. Fewer English ships visited Portuguese harbors, but English cargoes were characterized by much Pohl, Die Portugiesen in Antwerpen, 68–9. This process of merchant migration has received its best explanation to date from Oscar Gelderblom, Zuid-Nederlandse kooplieden en de opkomst van de Amsterdamse stapelmarkt (1578–1630) (Hilversum: Verloren, 2000).
