3 DaniŽl Langenberg proclaimed in the Lutheran Church of Kampen on the 8th, 15th and 22nd of November 1807 his intententions of marriage.

It was recorded that; 'D. Langenberg from Zwolle, living in Koekoek, and Hermina Harms Jong 'Daughter' (this indicates Hermina had not been previously married) from Zalk, will marry on the 29 November 1807.'

A confirmation letter from W.H. Schlosser, Mayor (or equivalent) of Zalk states that on the 6 November 1807 DaniŽl and Hermina were in 'ondertrouw' (dutch) which means they have had the banns published.

The Church wedding of DaniŽl and Hermina took place on the 29 November 1807 at the Lutheran Church in Kampen.

8 In February 1825 DaniŽl and his family perished as a result of a great flood which extended over large tracts of Overijssel. Their bodies were found days later in the vicinity of Zwolle.

The flooding was catastrophic, river dikes broke in numerous locations and in many places the water crested the dikes, flowing over with high speed while the water mass and debris destroyed everything in its path. In some low-lying areas such as IJsselmuidenís Koekoekspolder, where DaniŽl's family lived, the inundation reached well over 9 feet.

The flood inundated about a third of Overijssel and also large parts of neighbouring Drenthe and particularly Friesland. Two thirds of Friesland was flooded as a result of as many as thirty breaches in the Frisian main sea dike. In Friesland 17 people drowned and the land was untenable for farming for more then ten years. A year after the flood the large expanses of stagnant water brought malaria and the subsequent loss of more than 4,000 individuals in Friesland alone.The plight of Overijssel shortly after was exhaustively detailed by author J. ter Pelkwijk, a graduate of the University of Harderwijk. Commissioned by the Overijsselís governor, Ter Pelkwijk in his book 'Overijssels Watersnood' covered the entire flooded region in a step-by-step account, identifying the dike breaches, sometimes even the extent of the breach, naming nearly all those who perished including DaniŽl Langenberg and his family, itemizing the damage done to farms and homes, and detailing stories of heroic rescues as well as tales of great personal tragedies.

In the book it is written that DaniŽl Langenberg and his family lived near the 'high plank bridge' at the western end of Koekoek [on a farm called 'Goede Hoop' (Good Hope)]. DaniŽl and his heavily pregnant wife and four children took refuge in a 'bok' (a type of boat) that was fastened to the plank bridge. The severe flooding resulted in the plank bridge and supporting piles giving way forcing DaniŽl to unfasten the 'bok'. The family drifted in the 'bok' for one to one and a half hours towards a house in Wekeren where the 'bok' sank in a strong eddy, six bodies were found here.
Daniel and Hermina's 16 year old daughter Harmpjen (Hermpjen) was the sole survivor. The bodies of the family were found over subsequent days and weeks. The body of nine year old daughter Annigje was found on the 18 February 1825 at 5.00 pm at Wekeren, Mastenbroek. The bodies of DaniŽl and his twelve year old son, Jan, were found on the 23 February 1825 at 4.00 pm near the house standing in Wekeren. The body of six year old Aaltje was found on the 21 April 1825 at 3.00 pm at Mastenbroek/Zwollerkerspel. The body of 3 year old Grietje was found at Westenholte. 
Family: F440
 
9 In February 1825, as a result of a great flood extending over many dutch provinces Jan and Grietje's son DaniŽl and his family were drowned. Ironically, unlike his other siblings, DaniŽl was born in Zwolle in 1776 as a result of his parents fleeing the 1776 floods in Koekoek which eventually saw much of the city of Zwolle, the Overijssel capital, and vicinity inundated. The flood of 1825 was to far surpass the 1776 flood in magnitude.

37 Although some eighteenth and nineteenth century authors authors have written that Wierd was a nephew of Grote Pier, the Frisian chroniclers Peter and Worp van Thabor, contemporaries of Wierd, have written of him only as Wierd van Bolsward. Modern authors such as J.J. Kalma believes that Wierd is not related to the family of Pier and not the son of Pier's siblings Sybren, Abbe or Tijdt. Brouwer in the Encyclopedia of Friesland states that Grote Wierd was not the nephew of Grote Pier but his Ďlieutenantí who was probably born in Bolsward and died in Leeuwarden on 30 November 1528.

Uilke and Eeke lived at number 188 Grootzand, Bolsward.

Siebrigje Laagland (Langenberg) is the great great granddaughter (2nd great granddaughter) of Uilke Tietes De Jong. Siebrigje has in her possesion the bible of Uilke Tietes De Jong. One can only speculate as to why the leather bound bible with an embossed silver clasp has the follow dedication engraved on the back of the clasp:

'18 September 1838, to Uilke Tietes De Jong, in memory of Sara Cremer'

The bible no doubt even in the early 1800s' would have had significant monetary and religious value. The Friesland Archives reveal that a Sara Jans Cremer died on the 18th of September, 1838 in Uilkes hometown of Bolsward, Friesland. She was just 33 years old. Sara Jans Cremer was of the family de La Lande Cremer. The Cremer's owned a local Pharmacy and a Tannery. It is believed that Uilkes worked for the Cremers in either their Tannery or Pharmacy. It is recorded the Uilke was a 'Winkelbediende' or shop assistant so it is most likely that he worked at the Cremer pharmacy. The de La Lande Cremer trace their ancestors back to the French Huguenots of Southern France. Sara was just 33 years of age when she died, at the time Uilke would have been 25 years of age. The archives show Sara was married at the time of her death to Hendrikus Brouwer, they had five children the youngest a boy of two years. The archives also show Uilke married Eeke Gerrits Koster in May 1839. It would not be unreasonable to speculate that Uilke and Sara had been good friends. Perhaps Uilke worked for Sara in the pharmacy. The dedication in the bible (the bible was quite possibly Sara Cremers) suggests they at least shared a strong religious commonality. Who presented the gift of the bible to Uilke is unknown, probably a Cremer relative, possibly Sara's husband, parents or sibling. Coincidently Uilke Tietes died in 1846 at the age of 33 years, the same age that Sara Cremer died. (Ref 1 & 3)


NOTES: Family de la Lande Cremer

Sara Jans Cremer was the daughter of Jan Cremer and Joanna de la Lande. Sara's older brother Jacobus, born 2 February 1800, was the first to adopt the surname de la Lande Cremer. Sara appears to have retained only her fathers surname, Cremer. Sara's parents married in Amsterdam 25/1/1799. Jan, a mechant from Gronigen took Joanna with him to live in the province of Friesland. Joanna was the great great granddaughter of Pierre de la Lande, a haberdasher and manufacture of ribbon, chord and rope in Paris. Pierre de la Land, born about 1640, was a Huguenot and had to flee from France as a result of religious persecution. Together with his wife Jacomijn (Jacomine) Mouche and his young son Jean Pierre de la Lande they settled in the religiously tolerant Amsterdam. Their descendents lived in Haarlem, Amsterdam, Bolsward and Keulen (Germany). For a long time they were members of the Wallonian Church. (Ref 2)

81 Dirk was a 'Meester Loodgieter / Leijdekker' (Master Plumber and Slate Roofer) by profession. During the 1780s Dirk became involved in local politics and in the period 1781 - 1786 was a 'Vroedsman' (Councillor) and in 1787 became Burgemeester (Mayor) of Bolsward. This was a period of instablility in the Netherlands and was referered to as the 'Patriotic Times'. France had undergone a bloody revolution and 'patriots' in the Netherlands also sort there own liberation from the dominance of the House of Orange later to become the Dutch royal family. Burgemeester Eeerdmans and other leading citizens of Bolsward successfully lead an uprising against the House of Orange seeking trading concessions from the Hague allowing Bolsward to continue its tradition of international commerce. The patriotism they displayed was to Friesland not necessarily the Netherlands.

Dirk's son Suffridus Eerdmans a Surgeon stationed in the West Indies was a prisoner of war (1811 - 1814) during the Napoleonic War. Following his imprisonment Suffridus was Officer Surgeon in the Dutch army from 1814 serving in the V Gezondheid (Medical) 6e Battalion Artillerie.

If unlucky enough to select the wrong enlistment number from the draw, Durk, like many young dutch men was required to perform military service on reaching the age of 19. In 1887 Durk's enlistment number was not selected and he was excused from military service. It appears however that Durk felt military service was not such a bad idea and on the 11th of May of that year Durk made an enlistment number exchange with a newly selected recruit Dirk Brouwer. Durk was to embark on on a military career that would span 16 years.

Initially serving 4 years on home soil in the Netherlands in the National Military from 1887 until 1891 Durk would follow this by 12 years on foreign soil in the KNIL. On the 14 june 1891 Durk signed on for a six year enlistment period in the colonial military based in the Dutch East Indies (Indonesia) as a volunteer soldier in the Royal Dutch Colonial Army (known as the KNIL; Koninklijk Nederlands-Indisch Leger, and also refered to as the Royal Dutch-East India Army). On 26 September 1891 Durk boarded the steamship 'Burgermeester Den Tex' in Amsterdam and embarked for the Dutch East Indies arriving a month later on the 2nd November in Padang on the island of Sumatra. On arrival Durk was placed in the 4th Depot Battalion Infantry followed by a transfer on the 12 March 1892 to the 17th Battalion Fusiliers. On 4th May 1893 Durk was transferred to the medical services assigned to hospital duties. On the 26 September 1897 Durk re-enlisted for a further 2 years in the colonial army and re-enlisted again on the 26 September 1899 for a further 4 years. On the 27 February Durk received the bronze medal (reason unknown). On the 7 June 1901 some 10 years after enlistment a 'reorganization' of the military occured in Batavia and Durk now served as a corporal 'male-nurse' in the military Hospital. On the 24th February 1903 Durk was awarded the silver medal for services during military operations in the Aceh war. In 1903, the final year of his military service Durk was promoted to sergeant-in-charge nursing. Durk now married to an an Indonesian-Dutch intended to stay permanately in the Dutch East Indies obtaining a Netherlands-Indie passport on the 1st September 1903. In 1903, Durk travelled to Malang where he was honorably discharged from the military on the 3rd October 1903 receiving a life time annual military pension of 240 florins (including a 300 florin bonus for time in service) begining on the 3rd of November 1903.
Three months later, on the 3rd February 1904, Durk passed away at the age of 36 years and was buried in Malang on the island of Java.


Durk married Indonesian Johanna Mathilde Van Horsen on the 15th March 1899, and had two sons Jan and Jelke. Both Durk and his wife died young and their surviving son, Jelke, was placed in an orphanage in Indonesia.
Durk is buried in Malang in the Dutch Christian Cemetery, on gravestone 269 are the words "Hier rust / Durk Hartkamp / geb. te Oude Haske / (Friesland) 29-12-1867 / overl. te Malang 3-2-1904 / R. 1. P. (1119)

Durk and Johanna's son Jelke Hartkamp married Sophie de Graaff. An expulsion of people of Dutch heritage from Indonesia by president Sukarno in 1948 led to Jelke and Sophie and their family of eight children migrating to the Netherlands in search of Hartkamp relatives.

106 Jan Dirks HARTKAMPs occupation is listed as a male farm worker, a peddler, a sellers hired hand and seller of homemade products (inlandsch kramer). On his daughter Siebrigje's birth certificate Jan was recorded as a 'venter' or delivery person. Evertje Viles De Jongs occupation is listed as a female farm servant and female housekeeper.

One of Jan and Evertjes sons, probably Durk went to Indonesia as a soldier in the Royal Dutch Colonial Army (KNIL; Koninklijk Nederlands-Indisch Leger, also refered to as the Royal Dutch-East India Army) stationed in Malang (Java). He married an Indonesian and had two sons. Both parents died in Indonesia and the surviving sons were placed in an orphanage in Indonesia.
One son, Jelke Hartkamp, married an Indonesian. An expulsion of people of Dutch heritage from Indonesia by president Sukarno in 1948 led to Jelke and his family of 8 children and his wife migrating to the Netherlands in search of Hartkamp relatives. The children included five boys (Jelke, Andries, Jacob Eddy, Frans, and George (Sjors) and three girls (Joke, Henny and Erna). On arrival in the Netherlands the Dutch government placed the families in Hotels. Jelke then began his search for Dutch relatives he had never previously met or been in contact with. After asking every visiting salesmen to the hotel if they new of any Hartkamps he was eventually told by a traveller from Joure that he new of Hartkamps in Joure. Jelke and his family eventually settled in Joure, Friesland.

113 It is here with Sybren Hylkes and his siblings, a very important change is made, which will effect their future descendants. In 1811 people has to take a family last name, this was started by Napoleon in France. Since the world population was growing at a fast pace, and due to people naming their children after themselves as either the "son of" or the "daughter of", it was felt that one common name should be use and future generations would use the same common last name. Although the practice was started in France, it soon spread throughout the world. Sybren Hylkes choose to use "Hoekstra" as his last name. It is known that Sybren Hylkes was the only one of the brothers who was not a builder of ships, as his occupation is shown as a farmer in Nijega. Although his brother chooses the surname of Spaan, Sybren Hylkes Hoekstra's descendants would be known by this surname. Sybren Hylkes siblings Aaltje and Fedde Hylkes started using the last or surname of "Spaan". The word "Spaander" in Dutch means "chip" (of wood) and since Fedde Hylkes was a carpenter ship builder, he felt the name of "Spaan" would be appropriate and would represent his occupation in life. Sybren Hylkes HOEKSTRA

118 Emke until 1906 lived in Schettens, Friesland. In 1906 he emigrated to America on the ship Noordam of Rotterdam. With a loan of fl 500 from a farmer friend he arrived in America on the 7 March 1906. He was 21 years of age and unmarried. He did not remain in America but returned to the Netherlands, where he repaid his loan.

120 Gerbrig had a son out of wedlock 3 years after the death of her husband Roelof Nicolaas NOOORDERBROEK. It is believed that the father of this son was Gerrit MONDRIAAN. The child Gerard was given the mothers maiden name of KNORR. Gerrit MONDRIAAN is known to have been married twice before he met Gerbrig Knorr in Amsterdam. His first wifes name was Fronica Hermina VERMENT (1814 - 1847). His second wifes name was Johanna OSSEN. Gerrit MONDRIAANs older brother Willem Frederik MOONDRIAAN is the grandfather of the Dutch artist Piet MOONDRIAAN (1872 - 1944). Gerrit MONDRIAAN has a common ancestral tie to the great Dutch Artist Vincent Van GOGH (1853 - 1890). Gerrit's great grandmother, Josina Van GOGH, was the sister of Jan Van GOGH who was the father of Vincent Van GOGH's great grandfather. Refer to the notes of Gerard Knorr for more details.

121 Jacob Knorre was born about 1693 in the small village of Niedermeiser which is near the city of Kassel. At this time Niedermeiser was in the territory of Hessen-Kassel. In a conflict between Austria and Prussia the prince of Hessen chose the side of Austria. The Hessian parliament however favored the Prussian side and in 1866 Prussia annexed the teritory of Hessen-Kassel. Together with the small state of Nassau it became th new Prussian province of Hessen-Nassau. Jacob KNORRE
 
122 Johan Frederik Knorr is not listed on the local birth registry as his older and younger siblings were. Johan's death certificate however does list Johann George Knorre and Justina Elisabeth Hoffman as his parents. Johan was born in Hoxter while all his older and younger siblings were born in Niedermeiser. Interestingly Johan had an older brother with the same name, Johan, who also reached adulthood.

In the Netherlands in 1811 the Napoleonic decree made it law that the head of each family register at their local municipality a chosen surname. This led to a large increase in newly adopted 'fixed' surnames. Particularly in the north and east of the Netherlands where many families had until this time not used permanent surnames. Rather from generation to generation they would adopt the male parents first name as a surname for the next generation and as a result each successive generation would have a different last name (surname). Many families, begining with nobility, adopted surnames at a much earlier date, even as early as the sixteenth century. In 1811 Johan Frederik Knorre registered the surname Knorr in Bolsward.

Individual Note:
Op het oog een goede klant van de voerman Haije Haijema was Suffridus Cram er (Kramer), Medicine Doctor. Hij huurde in 1775 nogal eens wat. Twee paar den en de knecht moesten o.a. eens mee naar Lemmer, met de eigen wagen v an dokter Cramer, om zekere Collegiale Comparite bij te wonen. Helaas, to en de rekening over 1775 kwam, gaf de dokter niet thuis. Aanmaningen mocht en niet baten. Het kwam op de rechtdag van 4 oktober 1776 voor het nederg e- recht. De wagenaarsbelangen werden behartigd door notaris Dominicus Mar nstra. Dokter Cramer schakelde de advocaat Dr.Sicco Heineman in. Er werd o .a. bezwaar gemaakt tegen een post van 22 juli, waarbij een wagen met tw ee paarden en een los paard werden gehuurd voor een plezierrit naar Hindel oopen en Galamadammen. Dokter Cramer zou een en ander hebben besteld vo or zijn 25-jarige schoonzoon Bauke S.Osinga, verwer en glasemaker te Worku m. Daar zou ook de rekening heen moeten, althans volgens de dokter. Haije ma was het er niet mee eens. Het kwam twaalf keer op de rol bij een rechtd agzitting en pas op 22 mei 1778 kreeg Dr.Suffridus Cramer, bij verste k, de opdracht binnen acht weken te betalen. De advocaat had toen al afgeh aakt.

130 In 1825 violent storms ravaged the north sea coastal communities of the Netherlands. As the flood waters spilled across the lowlands many lives were lost including the family of DaniŽl Langenberg (refer DaniŽl Langenberg 1776 - 1825, Person ID: l1438). This was referred to as the great flood 'Watersnood' of 1825. Vast tracts of the lowlands particularly in the provinces of Friesland and Zeeland lay inundated with water for many years after. The following year, 1826, produced an unusually hot summer, prime conditions for mosquitos. The outcome of this was a grave malaria epidemic breaking out in numerous Dutch coastal areas of the Netherlands. The victim of this mosquito borne illness is struck with recurrent cycles of shaking chills, fever and sweats and if left untreated the patient literally becomes exhausted to death with the recurring episodes. Many died from complications such as pleurisy and pneumonia. In 1826 the city of Groningen in the east of the Netherlands recorded some 8,000 diseased persons of which 3,000 died out of a population of approximately 30,000; Amsterdam had about 2,400 deaths from malaria. Friesland and Zeeland, which were considered the most malarious regions in Europe and had been for centuries, also recorded numerous deaths although the exact numbers are not readily available.

A 1905 Newspaper article, Niewsblad van Friesland: Hepkema's courant, lists some of those individuals that succumbed to this illness, the cause of which was unknown at the time. The list includes two Laagland family members living in Snikzwaag: Klaas Hettes Laagland who died 6th August 1826 aged 72 years, farmer 'boer' and his son Hette Klazes Laagland who died on the 23rd December 1826 aged 36 years, farmer 'boer'.

Also listed, for the Oudehaske region are Roelof Koops Knobbe, aged 68 years, died 10 August 1826, peat boss 'veenbass', and his wife Margen Harmens Toering, aged 62 years, died 15 August 1826. Roelof and Margen are the great grandparents of Margen Alberts Snoeyer, wife of Harmen Jacobs Langenberg (1799-1873, Person ID: I0068).
Outbreaks of malaria still occurred in Friesland in the 1900's. As children the brothers Herman (Person ID: I0067) and Martin Langenberg (Person ID: I0068) both suffered from malaria in the 1940s while living in Bolsward, Friesland, both recovered.

135 As a result of Jan's father Taede losing his position in the Police force Taede was forced to take his family to Germany where Taede found work in a colliery. Taede died from pneumonia whilst in Germany.
In October 1911 at the age of 19 years Jan was called for military service in the Netherlands. The military records show the Jan's father had passed away and that Jan, now the bread winner of the family, was a mine or pit worker living in Sharnebeck, Westphalia, Germany prior to military service. Jan was placed on extended furlough on the 14 June 1915, military service was typically 5 to 7 years. Jan joined the Territorial Army in August 1918. Following his completion of service Jan was discharged from the Territorial Army in October 1932.

Jan Laagland found a career in the Dutch Police force reaching the rank of major. Jan taught at the Police Academy in Amsterdam where he was known as Jan 'Law book'.

138 In the census of 1894, at the age of 26 years, Taede is recorded as a Policeman 3rd Class living in Terkaple, a small village in Haskerland a region within the municipality of Utingerdeel which is now part of Skarsterl‚n (Dutch: Scharsterland). In November 1896 the Queens representative 'Commissaris der Koningin' promoted Taede Laagland a Policeman, 'agent van politie', in Leeuwarden to a 'veldwachter' or rural patrolman in Menaldumadeel. This was gazetted in the Leeuwarder Courant on the 5th November 1896. Menaldumadeel (Menameradiel, eng.) is a Friese municipality of approximately 70 km2 to the west of Leeuwarden and includes Taede's hometown of Berlikum. One of Taedes nightly duties was to ensure that the local publicans did not serve alcohol after closing. Unfortunately Taede accepted one too many 'tipples' as he did his nightly rounds and found himself retiring a little prematurely from the Police force (Source: Eeke Laagland, 2007). The census of February 1903 records Taedes previous occupation as worker in a card factory and current occupation as a buyer for a shop. It would appear Taede lost his 'veldwachter' position sometime prior to 1903 but then sometime after, in order to secure an income, Taede and his family moved to Recklinhausen north of Gelsenkirchen in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, where Taede worked in a colliery. After only a short time in Germany Taede died from pneumonia in 1906 or 1907 at the age of 39.
Taede's wife Siebrigje was pregnant at the time with Dora. Dora was born in Germany three months after Taedes death. Siebrigje and her eight surviving children returned to Joure, Friesland soon after. Taede and Siebrigje's son, Jan Laagland, was called Jan 'Lawbook' and was a major in the Police force and taught at the Police Academy in Amsterdam. Taede and Siebrigje's son Klaas had two daughters, Thea and Corrie.
Siebrigje Hartkamp re-married 6 years after husband Taede's death. Siebrigje married Minne Roels Rypkema. Minne was a 'Colonial', a professional soldier in Indonesia. There were no children by this marriage. Minne was on a six guilder weekly military pension but also worked in a nursery in Joure to support Siebrigje and his eight step children. Siebrigje divorced Minne in Ljouwert on 12 November 1942. Of Taede and Siebrigjes eight children who reached adulthood all married (Source: Clara Laagland, 1982).
