Jurriaan François de Friderici, former soldier and Governor-General of Suriname from 1790 to 1802, died in 1812. Alongside his military career, he was also a planter and owned thirteen plantations. After his death, a memorial tablet for him – most likely after this design by Gerrit Schouten – was placed in the Dutch Reformed Koepelkerk. The monument was lost in the fire that destroyed the city in 1821.
