Eldert Houthuijzen and Anna Catharina Lubbeking

A page from the church books of Huizen. The page shows an index of church graves from the first half of the 18th century. I am particularly interested in grave 24, where my 6th great-grandparents Eldert Houthuijzen and Anna Catharina Lubbeking found their final resting place. According to this index, the grave belonged to Eldert Houthuijse. Buried are Anna Lubbekingh, wife of Eldert Houthuijsen, on 7 January 1766, a son of E. Houthuijsen, on 30 April 1767, and Eldert Houthuijsen himself, on 29 December 1772 (the month is omitted, but I know...

Aaltje van ‘t Land

A page from the Putten baptism book, with baptisms from 1767. In the middle of the page is Aaltje, daughter of Theunis Harmse and Grietje Johannesse, from Huynen (nowadays known as Huinen), a hamlet near Putten. She was baptized on 8 March 1767. Aaltje’s surname is not listed on the page. Maybe the family did not use it yet, at the time, or maybe it was just not written down. From later records I know the surname is Van ‘t Land. Aaltje van ‘t Land (1767-1853) is my 5th great-grandmother. I descend from her son Jacob Prins,...

Death certificate of Barbera Theresia van Cauwenberge

Death certificate of Barbera Theresia van Cauwenberge, my 3rd great-grandmother. Her death was registered by her son-in-law Carel de Wandel (Carolus Franciscus de Wandel in full, husband of Bernardina Coppens) and someone I don’t know, Pieter Francies Heijndrickx. Strangely enough, the name on the death certificate was Maria Theresia, not Barbera Theresia as it should be. Did her family not know her name? It’s possible, in 1868 a granddaughter was named after her – Maria Theresia Barbera. That suggests that there was at...
