Camp Vere

Camp Vere, a fortified seaport of the Netherlands, in the province of Zealand, is situated on the island of Walcheren. Formerly it was a place of considerable commercial importance, indications of which are still seen in its beautiful cathedral and town house. In Camp Vere the Scottish merchants had their staple, which was transferred thither from Bruges in 1444, i.e. all goods sent from Scotland to the Netherlands were deposited in that city, and there they remained until sold. These Scots formed a separate community in the city, and amongst the privileges they enjoyed was the right to be governed by the law of their own country.
