= The documentation of the criminal trial against Helmond resident Balthazar Stercksel, standing accused of the murder of Willem Philips Somers. The story reads like a modern day thriller. It all starts with the visit of "schepenen" Willem van Dijck, Cornelis Hoofdt and drossard Johan de Cassemajor to the severely injured Willem Somers in his house: "en aldaer denselven Somers gequetst bevonden te sijn, met een steeck in de linkerborst tusschen de tweede en derde rip, penetrerende tot in de caviteijt van de borst, ende hem door de heer drossard afgevraagt sijnde, wanneer, door wie hoedanigh en op wat plaatse en in wiens presentie hij de voors: quetsure ofte wonde gekregen hadde; heeft daarop geantwoort en verklaart dat hem den voors: steek opheden desen namiddagh de clocke omtrent half twee uuren met een mes door Balthazar van Stercksel wonende alhier, is toegebragt (...) en dat aldaer present was de heer Capellaen Otterings, en Gort Aarts, knegt van Thomas Raaijmakers (...) en Jan Antonisse van Gerwen". The second document dated September 19th 1728 is the autopsy report of Willem Somers. The collection of documents spans over a decade and includes testimonies of the three gentlemen present at the attack, the official indictment of the, until then, fugitive Balthazar Stercksel and his violent capture ("Dat denselven gevangenen als doen verscheijde dreijgement dede seggende tegens Peter Coolen ik sal u wel vinden al was het over ses jaer vloekende en sweerende ten huijse is uijtgegaen alswaneer de glasen sijn ingeslagen. Dat den gevangen alsdoen het daer bij nogh niet en heeft gelaeten, Maer aende huijsinge van Jan van Oekel veele baldadigheden gepleegt. Dat den gevangenen is bevonden omtrent de huijsinge van Francis van Oekel met een snaphaen in de handt" (dated September 29th 1729)). The trial starts in April 1734 and many documents concern depositions for and against the defendant. Unfortunately, the outcome is not known. Most documents signed by clerk H. Donker.
