History of Herwijnen

"A great agricultural depression, affecting first the inland areas and North Brabant, in the 1650s and early 1660s, became general in nature in the late 1660s. (One must wonder if this depression influenced AL(D)ERT HEIJMANSZ ROOSA's decision to immigrate to New Amsterdam in the spring of 1660.) After 1662, grain and dairy prices fell dramatically, and rents, because the Republic had been the only west European county regularly exporting and re-exporting great quantities of agricultural produce. This depression, came also to the rest of Europe, but lasted substantially longer in the Republic, not coming out of it until the mid eighteenth century. This was mainly caused because English ships sealed off the harbors preventing the Dutch to trade."
