69/2856 [Surinam]. Archive concerning the plantation 'Rust en Werk', ±1834-1896, consisting of 4 notebooks and over 200 loose documents, containing (transcripts of) balance sheets, invoices/ receipts, divisions of property and other documents concerning the inheritance of (parts of) the plantation, cheques and official/ personal letters, all manuscript.

= The plantation Rust en Werk at the Commewijne river was founded by Wigbold Crommelin as a coffee plantation in 1750, together with the plantations Lust tot Rust and Einde Rust, situated nearby (and also referred to in a few documents in this archive). It was sold in 1774 to Pieter Constantijn Nobel and inherited in 1808, after the death of his widow, by his son-in-law Theodor Gülcher. Gradually, the cultivation of coffee was being substituted by that of i.a. cocoa and cotton, and in the second half of the 19th century by sugar cane. By then, Theodor Gülcher's eldest son Pieter Constantijn and after his death his cousin (or nephew?) Jan Marie had taken over the plantation. Pieter Constantijn and later Jan Marie, together with Charles le Chevalier (and later (also) W.R. Ferwerda), ran the plantation from their domicile in Amsterdam. They signed and sent the documents concerned to Pieter Sligcher, barrister in Monnikendam, co-owner of the plantation and representative of other family members and co-owners, cousins/ nephews Barend van Spreekens and Pieter Hendrik van Gelder (both living in Velp) and Johannes Thiebout, lawyer in Zwolle. The invoices concern purchases of materials for the plantation or sales of i.a. sugar and rum (the names of the sellers provided); some documents are about cultivation matters (e.g. readying land and buying seeds for the growing of cocoa or sugar cane); some letters concern the matter (and difficulty) of obtaining new employees after the setting free of slaves after the emancipation of 1863. There was a noticable decrease in proceeds in the years after the emancipation due to the lack of workmen. All in all, this archive gives a detailed, apparently complete, and valuable insight in the goings on on a Surinam plantation in general and Rust en Werk in particular. Most documents bear the stamp of the "Familie-Archief Pont" (descendants of one of the mentioned family members?). Also with almost 40 plates from Suriname in Beeld (publ. Paramaribo, 1903), including a few showing the Rust en Werk plantation.
