a painting of a militia company was in the inventory made in Amsterdam in 1691 of the estate of Catharina Hooft, widow of Cornelis de Graeff (Frans Banning Cocq was related to the Hooft and de Graeff families)
this picture is presumably the militia company by Gerrit Lundens listed in the inventory of Pieter de Graeff, Amsterdam, 1709 (the size is not given in either case)
almost certainly in the Pieter van der Lip sale, Amsterdam, 14 June 1712, nr. 27
a picture supposed to be Rembrandt's modello for the Nightwatch, on panel and exactly the same size as this painting, belonged to Heer Boendermaker in 1758
