His grandfather Gerrit was a glazier and his father Jacob, a successful portrait painter who enjoyed the patronage of local aristocrats and members of the upper middle class.
During the 1630s, the young Aelbert trained with his father, and in the early 1640s the two artists collaborated, with Jacob executing the portraits and Aelbert the landscapes.

 Kingdoms in crisis   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
For the next twelve years the island was engulfed in a ruinous conflict involving Irish confederates, Scottish covenanters, English parliamentarians and royalists from each of the three Stuart kingdoms.

 Shiver My Timber -- A Pirate RPG
Unless you're playing a middle- or upper-class character or there's a specific reason in his background (i.e., a servant whose master insisted that he learn his letters), chances are that your character is illiterate.
While you may apply with a pirate who is "between ships" and looking for work, the best way to get into the game is to join one of the pirate crews that are currently operating in the game.
Since the game takes place in the 1640s, the only church in St. Elmo's would be the Church of England.
