Johan Williamson Leijel was a citizen and burgess of Gothenburg. He had business dealings with Johan Macklin [SSNE 7423] in 1663. On 11 December 1667, he signed a deposition stating that Johan Bierman helped him out in Amsterdam when he was a representative there for the College of Commerce (Swedish). Bierman not only made him a citizen of Gothenburg but also captain of his ship St Johann. Leijel got a pass with the same ship in ballast, one way from Amsterdam to Bordeaux or Rochelle, there to take on salt or wine. But after Bierman was ordered by Karl XI to go to Brabant and thence to England, he gave his factor power of attorney. Contrary orders followed from factor Johan de Swann and Mattias Bierman; Namely to unload the ballast and ship with new green white wood and go at great expense to St Thomas, to be equipped, and this despite Bierman’s orders.
