(siehe auch: Wideman)
Grandfather, James Wideman. A goldsmith and an iron worker, and a resident of Antwerp. In 1600 or 1601, he moved to Mantua to work at the court of the Duke of Man- tua, where his daughter was one of the ladies-in-waiting. In 1608, he was back in Antwerp, writing to the Duke about rubies worth "many millions of scudi" and three watches set in gold rings. Interestingly, in the Indianapolis Museum there is an Augsburg ring watch, circa 1600, punched "IW", and another in the Schatzkammer der Residenz in Munich.
