Death of Hieronymus
He died in Veere on 22 April, 1669. He was buried in the church in Stavenisse on 4 May. His tomb, which can still be seen, was made by the renowned sculptor Rombout Verhulst. Margaretha Huyssen subsequently married two more times.
After the death of Margaretha, the castle was hardly ever used, and fell into neglect. The two tall chimneys on the roof had already disappeared in Cornelis Pronk’s drawing of the building of approx. 1743. There are also other signs of deterioration in the drawing.
