Lucas Jacobs

"Lucas Jacobs, corn merchant" of London, imported corn to the metropolis for at least thirty-seven years (1608-45). Between 1608 and 1639, he is said to have brought in 120,100 quarters, and to have lost £3000 in this trade during the years 1638-40. His example during the earlier years, it is stated, caused others to enter the trade, whereby London " has been from time to time provided." His activities were characteristic of the second period of the metropolitan market, for he exported corn (at least once by his English factor) as well as imported it."[1]

Abraham Stockman

"There is an Insurance of 2000 pounds flemmish made upon the said silver by Marcus Tirick Doddart van Haveren Abraham Stockman all Hamburghers And otherwise negatively, and further cannot depose"[2]
