Biographical synthesis

Daniel Sloyer the younger (b. ?; d. ca. 1691). Merchant.

Probably born in Hamburg.

Resident in Cadiz in early 1650s, living "neare to the Torreon in Cadize".[1] Continued to be resident in Cadiz until at least 1664.[2]

Daniel Sloyer the younger's father was the Hamburg merchant Daniel Sloyer the elder, who lived in Hamburg and who was deceased by late 1652, leaving his widow in Hamburg, and Daniel the younger's brother, Franz Sloyer. Daniel Sloyer the younger had part-ownership of the ship the Saint George with his brother ffrancis (alt. Franz) Sloyer.[3]

Franz Sloyer had a commercial relationship with his brother Daniel Sloyer the younger, frequently shipping goods to Daniel in Cadiz and receiving returns to Hamburg from Daniel.

Anne Blondé in her University of Ghent master's thesis (2008-2009) reproduces a list of "Mayordomos" for Cadiz from 1663 to 1703, citing Hendrik Vandeginste, De Vlaamse natie te Cádiz (1665-1700). Een socioculturele benadering, Gent, RUG (onuitgegeven licenciaatsverhandeling) (Gent, 2000) as her source. As Mayordomo for 1664 she lists "vermoedelijk Daniel Sloyer" (translation: probably Daniel Sloyer).[4]

Daniel's brother Franz Sloyer predeceased him. A Reichskammergericht record contains the "Testament von 1691 des Daniel Sloyer, Kaufmann in Cadix". The same record contains an "Inventar von 1687 des Nachlasses des Franz Sloyer, Kaufmann in Hamburg".[5]

Evidence from High Court of Admiralty

Daniel Sloyer the younger was the lead claimant in the High Court of Admiralty for the ship the Saint George, which had been seized in 1652 by the English parliament's ships. The full title of the claim was "The clayme of Daniel Sloyer Abraham de Boyes Detliffe Classof and others of Hamburgh, and Vincent van Campen of Cadize in Spaine but borne in Hamburgh for the shipp the Saint George whereof John Martyns is master and her tackle apparell and furniture lately taken by some of the Parliaments shipps."[6]

Harman Reyndorp and ffrancis Sloyer, both merchants of Hamburg, freighted the ship the Saint Paul of Hamburg (Master: Hendrick Luck) in 1653 to go in ballast from Lubeck, where she had been built, to Dronten in Norway to take in a lading of 6000 deals on behalf of Harman Rayndorp and ffrancis Sloyer "and carried and delivered them at Cadiz to Daniel Sloyer brother of the said ffrancis for accompt of the said Hance Reynsdorp and ffrancis Sloyer". Harman Reyndorp and ffrancis Sloyer together owned a sixteenth part of the ship.[7]

ffrancis Sloyer freighted the ship the Crowne Imperial (Master: Hans Meynerson) in July 1653 at Hamburg for Cadiz "to goe to Cadiz and carry barley, beanes and peece goods, which were laden by him and Peter (?Roodt), Derrick Dobbelar, Albert Ankelman, and other merchants of Hambourough”. At Cadiz the goods were delivered to “Daniel Sloyer, Vincent Van Campen, John Scrother and others, factors and merchants there residing".[8]
