a Dutch colonial administrator, who served as governor of Curaçao (1803–1804); the Dutch Gold Coast (1810–1816); Sint Eustatius, Saba and Sint Maarten (1817–1822); and Suriname (1822–1827). Abraham de Veer was born on Curaçao to governor Johannes de Veer and Gijsbertha Vos. After making a career in the colonial government of Curaçao, he was, together with Cornelis Berch, given temporary civilian control over the island after it had been returned to the Dutch due to the Peace of Amiens. He resumed his work in the colonial administration after the new governor Pierre Jean Changuion arrived.
