  • Notes 
    • Hij studeerde rechten in Groningen en arriveerde in 1751 in Batavia als onderkoopman: hij zou nooit meer terugkeren naar Nederland.
      In 1763 kwam hij in de Raad van Indië
      In 1777 eerste raad en directeur-generaal
      Hij werd gouverneur-generaal (1780-1797), de laatste van de VOC. Zijn bestuur werd gekenmerkt door grove misbruiken. Een speciale Commissie-generaal moest orde op zaken gaan stellen in Indië, maar bleek daartoe niet in staat. Het was een rommelige periode, ook omdat in Nederland de Bataafse Republiek was ontstaan en de Vierde Engelse Oorlog in feite de nekslag betekende voor de VOC: de Engelsen waren militair sterker op zee, de verbinding met Nederland werd bijna onmogelijk, en er kwam een einde aan de vestigingen in India en op Sumatra.
      In december 1799 gingen alle schulden en bezittingen van de VOC over naar de Bataafse Republiek.
