Marten Huysvoorn, Ambassador's Timeline

September 1762

In September 1762, on the advice of Governor of Ceylon, Lubbert Jan Van Eck (1762-1765), a Dutch Ambassador was sent to Ayutthaya to conduct secret negotiations with the Siamese court to obtain the person of Prince Thepphiphit or his son(s). Ambassador Marten Huysvoorn, who was informed of local affairs by Werndlij, described Siam as being in a state of confusion. The court was hesitant to receive him because it suspected the intentions of the Dutch.
