When the first Bishop of Haarlem, Nicolaas van Nieuwland, was obliged to vacate the benefice in 1569, because of endless difficulties arising from his lack of administrative ability, the governance of the see was taken over by the Vicar-General, Godfried van Mierlo, and remained in his hands until he himself was eventually nominated as the new bishop on December 11th, 1570. In the interim an inventory was drawn up of the goods and chattels of Egmont Abbey, the revenues of which were earmarked to supply the bishop's table. The inventory, which was limited to those things that came directly under the control of the Abbot, provides a great deal of information not only about utensils and the like but also about various parts of the monastery, including the Abbot's lodging, the count's quarters, the kitchen, the guesthouse, the women's almshouse, the gatehouse, the infirmary, the refectory and the sacristy. On the basis of this and previous evidence it is now possible to reconstruct the ground plan of the monastery, although some of the details are still only conjectural.
