Joseon decided to send the Dutch
men staying behind to Japan. They were gathered in Namwon
and received clothing under the order of Minister.
According to ¡ºDagresiter Nagasaki¡»(August
14, 1668), Joseon provided clothing, rice, fabrics,
and other goods. It shows that sending Dutch people
to Japan was executed in the frame of the relief system
for castaways between Joseon and Japan.
The answer of consent to sending back Dutch People in
Joseon was handed to Chawae in April and finally, the
Dutch people departed for Japan in June.
Their number was seven(7) because one person died. They
all arrived in Nagasaki and were sent to VOC branch
in Deshima after interrogation of the Nagasaki governor.
Then, they left Japan and returned to their home via
Seven Dutch men staying behind in Joseon were permitted
to leave for Japan. They departed from Nagasaki by the
Nieuwpoort and changed to the Buijenskerck at the middle
of their voyage.
While the Buijenskerck arrived in Batavia on Nov. 30,
the Nieuwpoort arrived on April 8, 1669 via Coromandel(¡ºHutink
Version¡»p, X V II).
Seven people arriving in Batavia met Hamel remaining
there and returned home in 1670.
After retuning home, they claimed their unpaid wages
during their stay in Joseon to the "17 Lordships"
on Aug. 29, 1670 like their previously arriving mates.
According to the record, they would receive the unpaid
wages in accordance with the precedent of payment to
the seven people who returned home previously.
Handrick Hamel and his mates returned home in Aug. 1670,
17 years after they drifted in Joseon in August 1653.
In this way, the event of Dutch people's shipwreck in
Joseon which was registered in history among Joseon,
Japan, and Netherlands dropped as a curtain.
