Johannes Vermeer’s father, Reynier Jansz, was born in 1591 at the Beestenmarkt. Vermeer’s father lived from age 6 to 17 at De Drie Hamers (The Three Hammers) inn, also located on the Beestenmarkt. He studied in Amsterdam but returned afterwards to the Beestenmarkt in Delft with his wife. Johannes Vermeer’s sister, Geertruyt, was also born at the Beestenmarkt in 1620. Vermeer himself never spent any time here, but the rest of his family lived here for many years.
