Additional remarks There were two men named Jacob van Vladeracken in this period. This Jacob was probably a son of Gerit van Vladeracken and his wife Catharina. Between 1482 and 1484 he married Mechtelt Jans van Nuland, widow of Goyaert Peters Wytmeri (d. 1481/2); he had been married before but nothing is known about his first wife. In 1483/4 he became a sworn brother of the Illustrious Confraternity of Our Lady in 's-Hertogenbosch and in his will he expressed his desire to be buried in the Confraternity chapel in St John's church. His widow Mechtelt remarried after Jacob's death and was buried elsewhere.
