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.

5 Fedde Sybrens was a builder of wooden ships in Lemmer, Friesland, Netherlands. His occupation is listed as "Scheepstimmerman" which in Dutch means "Ships Carpenter", he later is shown as "Master Shipwright". He married at the age of about 23 years in 1708 with Aaltje Klases.One year later they bought a house and shipyard in Lemmer. At first, they lived at Nr.50 in Lemmer (1716). Later at Nr.43 (1729). In 1733 at Nr. 45. They went to the Mennonite Church in De Knijpe. They were baptized in 1709. Because they were Mennonites, their children are not baptized when they were first born. Their son Hylke Feddes baptized his children in the Reformed Church when they were several years old. In 1744 they lived with five people in the house, possible two adults and three children, only two of the children names are known.

From the pages of the official documents of the city of Lemmer, Friesland, Netherlands. This documentis dated 8 Jan.-15 Jan. & Jan 22 in the year 1700 and is located in Boek (book) 33, bl.134: This document reads as follows:

"Fedde Sijbrants with his wife living at Heerenveen want offer and permission at the buying of a certain shipyard with the carpenter's shop and carpenter's equipment also housing and property existing in two rooms and the property large in his surrounding 122 1/2 feet about every year tax with fifty Car. guilders 15 Stivers ground rent to the Noble Sir Districts Master Andringa according to the lease letter on the first November in every year appear due date to pay, wider powers the afore-mentioned lease then will do, the aforementioned Sir District at West and North, Hendrik Bottes at East and the Zijlroedeat South, next as large and small, good and bad as the seller thus long has ..., bought from Aucke Gerrijts, Master schipwright in Lemmer, for the amount of one thousand gold guilders of 28 stivers each, to be paid in instalment, as first at the start six hundred Car. guilders, then all the coming years on St. Petri next to it each time two hundred and fifty Car. guilders until the full payment, all in free cost unharmed money with its premium full the bought has completed. Has been paid".

It is known that Fedde Sijbrens was living in Lemmer because the census of Lemsterland of 1744 included a Fedde Sijbrens. He is listed in the Tax System, Lemmer 1749, as Fedde Zijbrens, shipwright, number individual 5, offer amount of money 10-0-0. It would not be until his grandsons Sybren Hylkes and Fedde Hylkes, would we see the use of the name of "Hoekstra" and "Spaan" for the first time.

It is known that Fedde Sijbrens was a representative of the people of Lemsterland in 1744 because he is shown in the town records as being a "Volkstelling Lemsterland" which means "Representing the people".

Several notations were found in the records of Lemmer as follows:

It is noted in the records in Lemmer that "In 1709 both Fedde and his wife Aaltje buy a shipwright in Lemmer for 1000 gold guilders of 28 stivers each.

TR1 HYP LEM, fol. 122: Fedde Sijbrens, master shipwright, living at Lemmer, sells new ship September 1, 1732.

TR2 HYP LEM, book 47, page 68: Fedde Sijbrens, master shipwright in Lemmer, confess by this that he has conveyed to Nanne Anes, woodpurchased at Lemmer such 1200 guilders as me Fedde Sijbrens from Herman Everts with his companions. Written on March 15, 1728.

SYBRENS, Fedde (Sijbrens) (I0580)
 
6 Hylkes Feddes, like his father, was a builder of wooden ship. A trade he learned from his father as was the custom for a father to pass along to his sons. Hylkes occupation is listed as a "scheepstimmerman", which means "ships carpenter".

In the book of Lemmer TR11 HYP LEM, book 50, p. 66 it states "Fedde Hylkes, shipwright in Lemmer, owes to Harm Jouert Stapert, purchaser there, for the half and Gerrit Ridderinkhof, purchaser in Zwolle, for the other half. Amount of 125 guilders for wood at delivery of the koff ship now on my yard will be built and for my paid wood will be used".

Also found in TR12 HYP LEM, book 50, p. 67 it's stated "Fedde Hylkes, etc. owes to Jouwert Sjoerds Stapert, amount of money 895 guilders, in case of delivered wood, to be used at the koff ship. now is building on my yard, and will be delivered by the shipmaster Age Everts. Written January 29, 1791".

In TR13 HYP LEM, book 50, p. 134, it states "Feede Hylkes etc., owes to Haring Martens de Koe, shipmaster in Lemmer, amount of money 1800 guilders, in case of paid taxes for the buying of wood to the building of a "smak" ship for my creditor, Written November 16, 1796".  
FEDDES, Hylke (I0568)
 
7 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. HOEKSTRA, Sybren Hylkes (I0563)
 
8 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.

9 Leaving the local Bolsward school at the age of 14 years, Herman began what was to be a 45 year career in the Dairy Industry. On the 14th of March 1949 at the age of fourteen Herman began working as a laboratory apprentice progressing to skilled dairy worker Buttermaker/Centrifugist at the Bolsward dairy factory "Hollandia Ltd" a producer of milkproducts and foodstuffs. Herman's father Jacob was also employed at 'Hollandia'.
In 1955, Herman (20 years) and his younger brother Martin (18 years) emigrated to Australia. The brothers departed from Rotterdam on the 13 September 1955 on the S.S. Sibajak. Like many new immigrants to Victoria, Herman and Martin were initially located at the Bonnegilla migrant camp in northern Victoria. They soon relocated to Dumbalk in Gippsland where Herman found employment at the Dumbalk Co-operative Butter and Cheese Company initially as an Ordinary Hand and quickly qualifying as Buttermaker.
After two years at the Dumbalk Co-op Herman returned to Friesland where he married Siebrigje (Siepie). Herman and Siepie departed Rotterdam for Australia on 11 February 1958 on the S.S. Johan van Oldebarneveldt. On returning from the Netherlands in 1958 the young couple stayed temporarily in Dumbalk (11 Feb - Aug 1958) before moving to Moe where Herman became senior buttermaker for the local co-op. After 11 years at Moe, the family moved to Koroit in Western Victoria where Herman took on the position of butter room manager in the newly built Murray Goulburn dairy factory. This was one of the biggest challenges of his career as he and his staff had to commission the new equipment which was the first in Australia. After 10 years at Koroit he transferred to the Leongatha Branch in Gippsland as butter room manager then factory manager. After 45 years in the dairy industry Herman retired in 1995.
Herman and Siepie ran a grazing property in Mardan for over 20 years. Herman passed away in 2012 after a long illness. Siepie lives in the family home in Leongatha.

12 Ytje Jacobs BLOK remarried some four years after the death of her first husband Johan Frederik KNORR. Ytje marrried her second husband, Hayes Steffens ELGERSMA on 10 DEC 1826 in Bolsward, Friesland.

13 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).

33 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.

47 Bauck Poppema also known as Bauck Foppesd. van Popma or Bauck Hemmema, was a legendary Dutch heroine known for her defence of the fort Hemmemastate during the conflict between the Schieringers and the Vetkopers in 1496.
Bauck was born in Terschelling and died in Berlikum, Friesland in 1501. Bauck was the wife of Doeke Hettes Hemmema (died 1503) an ally of the Schieringers party. In 1496, a pregnant Poppema successfully defended the fort for a time during a siege by Vetkoper invaders from the city of Groningen. Eventually, however, enemy reinforcements arrived, after which the fort fell and all but one of Bauck's soldiers were executed. Bauck was imprisoned in Groningen, where legend holds that she gave birth to twins while chained in a dungeon. She was released in 1497.
In Friesland Bauck Poppema has become a metaphor for a "brave woman" a Frisian heroine.
Daughter of Foppe Popma and Wilsck Aedesd. Gerbranda. Bauck Poppema married Doeke Hettes Hemmema (d. 1503), chieftain to Berlikum. From this marriage were born several children, of whom a daughter and a son reached adulthood.
Bauck Poppema grew up as one of fifteen children of Foppe Popma, lord of Terschelling and Wilsck Aedesd. Gerbranda. Three of her sisters joined the Sion nunnery near Dokkum. Bauck Poppema married Doeke Hettes Hemmema a Schieringer nobleman. The couple lived at Hemmemastate, a fortified stone tower (stins) surrounded by heavy earthen ramparts and a moat near Berlikum. It was the time of a bloody civil war between the Schieringers and Vetkopers. A conflict that lasted over a century from 1350 to 1498.
In August 1496 Bauck Poppema played a role in this struggle. Schieringer 'hoofdelingen' or nobels had in the summer of that year made several attacks on Vetkoper property and the Vetkopers sought revenge. Taking advantage of Doeke Hemmema's absence whilst in Franeker consulting with Schieringer party members the Groninger Vetkopers attacked Hemmemastate. According to contemporary chronicler Worp van Tabor at that time there was only Bauck, who was pregnant, her brother inlaw Alef Hemmema, and twenty soldiers defending the stins. The Vetkopers first attack using 'bussen' or cannon focused on the earthen ramparts but made little headway. The defenders returned fire knowing they would have to kill many Groningers to bring an end to the siege. In the second attack, the attackers tried to approach the stins by the canal under the cover of dampened hay. The defenders of Hemmemastate fired shots setting the hay on fire. Again there were many casualties among the Groningers: nine wagons full of dead and wounded were transported to Leeuwarden. Still the Groningers remained and prepared a siege tool, a 'cat' to conquer the stins. Alef Hemmema and three soldiers seized an opportunity that night to break through the siege to seek help from his brother Doeke, but it was too late: on September 3 Hemmemastate was stormed by Vetkopers allies from Oostergo. All soldiers, except one, were slain by the conquerors.
The pregnant Bauck Poppema was transferred to Groningen, Peter Tabor wrote "Groningen took the woman and imprisoned her showing her no mercy." Sixteenth century chronicler Winsemius wrote, 'In prison, Bauck Poppema gave birth to twins'. Worp van Tabor and Schotanus however wrote "in prison she bore a dead child". The oldest source, Peter van Tabor, is silent on Bauk's pregnancy and the birth of any children. Though he wrote that in May 1497 Bauck was exchanged for the Vetkoper Tjalling Lieuwes (Jellinga) who had been held prisoner by Franaker Schieringers.

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.

Popma Ancestors and the Island of Terschelling 'Skylge'

Until the Saint Hubert Flood of 1287 Terschelling was not an island at all and could be reached on foot from Frisia. Soon after the island became important for the Hanseatic fleets. For centuries the city of Zwolle was in charge of keeping the searoute of the Koggediep. In 1322 count William III of Holland gave Terschelling as a fief, including the low and high jurisdiction,†to Claes (Klaas) Popma, a scion from a mighty Frisian family. From 1322 to 1615 Terschelling remained a fief of Holland. Terschelling was ruled as a grietenij, a Frisian district. In 1482 Rienck Popma concluded a commercial treaty with the English king Edward IV. The Popma family was not the only claimant to the jurisdiction of Terschelling: the provost of the Saint Donatus at Brugge and Cornelis van Bergen competed with them in the early sixteenth century. The final possessor at the end of the sixteenth century, Charles of Aremberg, discovered he owned an impoverished island. In 1499 troops of a Frisian warlord had plundered the island, and in 1569 the castle of the Arembergs had been burnt down. In 1615 Aremberg sold Terschelling to the States of Holland.
In 1666 West-Terschelling was devastated by the English. The English fleet originally planned to attack the Dutch merchant fleet which was moored before the coast of Vlieland, the next island to the west. When the Dutch vessels retreated towards Terschelling, the English followed, destroyed 150 Dutch vessels, and landed in the harbour of West-Terschelling. The town was burnt to the ground by the English only leaving the Brandaris light house undamaged this attack would become known as 'Holmes's Bonfire' after the English admiral Holmes. The Great Fire of London later that year was considered by the Dutch to have been God's retribution. The next year, in 1667, the Dutch under command of De Ruyter executed a retaliatory expedition, and dealt the English navy a heavy blow at the Raid on the Medway (also known as the Battle of Chatham), in effect ending the Second Anglo-Dutch War. In the eighteenth century whaling helped the islanders to gain some prosperity.


In 1612 Terschelling had been divided into two separate municipalities. During the reign of the Dutch Patriot government, in 1805, Terschelling, Skylge in Frisian became again a Frisian island, but in 1814 it was added to the new province North-Holland, and the island was united into one municipality. In 1942, during the German occupation of the Netherlands, it was decided to add Terschelling again to the province of Friesland, a decision confirmed by Dutch law in 1951.
The island in its current shape was formed in the Middle Ages from a sandy area called De Schelling in the west and the original island Wexalia in the east. The name Wexalia, Wuxalia, or Wecsile is the medieval name of eastern Terschelling. However this name disappeared at the end of the Middle Ages. The last appearance of the name Wexalia is in a treaty between Folkerus Reijner Popma, then ruler of Terschelling, with king Edward of England in 1482.
The oldest traces of civilisation on Terschelling date from around 850, when a small wooden church was built on a hill near Seerip or Strip. This hill was later used as a burial ground and is known as the 'Striperkerkhof'.
Although Dutch is the national language of the Netherlands, on Terschelling both Dutch and Frisian are spoken. Frisian is said to be the closest living relative to Early English. Historically on the western side and on the eastern side of the island Frisian dialects dominated. Whereas a Dutch dialect called Midslands was the main language of Midsland and the surrounding area on the center of the island. The use of the three dialects is on the decline on Terschelling and all dialects are slowly being replaced by the standard Dutch language.

66 Dirk Hendriks HARTKAMP is listed as a shop servant, worker. His father owned a shop as he is shown as a shopkeeper, so he may have worked for his father. He also served in the National Military. Town records also list him as a fisherman, and as a workman. HARTKAMP, Dirk (Durk) Hendriks (I0547)
 
67 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.

With no room for a third son at the yard *Johannes youngest son Jan would find employment in shipyards in Amsterdam, Sliedrecht and Utrecht.

In 1919 Jan moved to Leeuwarden and worked in the shipyard of Molle van der Werf. In 1920 Jan Langenberg took over the company. From this period the Langenberg shipyards built wooden sailing yachts and high-speed motorboats. In 1925 Janís eldest son Johannes Langenberg began work in the yard. During the following thirty years the business did well with the new popularity of sport sailing and many sailing yachts were built at the yards.
After 1945 no new vessels were built at the yards only maintenance still continued.
Johannesís father Jan died in 1955. In 1963 the waterway was closed and with that came the end of the shipyard of Johannes Langenberg.

94 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.

97 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.

98 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.

Poppe was heer (schout) van Terschelling. Hij pachtte het eiland van Filips van Bourgondie. Terschelling was in zijn tijd belangrijk voor de zeevaart. Dit uit zich onder meer in het loodswezen. In 1413 konden schepen op het Vlie gebruik maken van loodsen. In 1414 kreeg Poppe Zyvaerden van Terschelling door de graaf het bestuur over Griend opgedragen. Uit de bewoordingen blijkt reeds, dat ook hier een feitelijk bestaande situatie op zijn Hollands gewettigd werd.
Poppe Zijvertszoon deed datgene waar het in feite om te doen was: hij betaalde, net als zijn voorgangers en opvolgers, het huisgeld aan de graaf:

"1422. Tegen kwitantie van de heer op de 25e dag van juni ontvangen van Poppe Zijvertsz. van Terschelling het huisgeld dat die van Terschelling de grafelijkheid jaarlijks zijn verschuldigd, te weten van 12 stigen, elke stige voor 20 huizen gerekend, en elk huis 2 oude Vlaamse groten, waar hij voor betaald heeft 5 Engelse nobels, 5 Frankrijkse kronen, 1 Hollands schild en 7 Vlaamse groten, makende 5 pond 4 schellingen 9 Vlaamse groten."

Hij deed dat als hoofdeling op Terschelling, gevolmachtigd zendbode van dat land en van 's lands wege. Terschelling was dus een 'land', een feitelijk onafhankelijk staatje. In de tekst van het verdrag zelf, in het Staatsarchief van Bremen heet het: "Wij Reiner Poppenzoon hoofdeling en grietmannen en rechters van het gemene land van Terschelling." En het verdrag wordt besloten met: " .. zo hebben wij grietmannen en rechters des lands van Terschelling voor ons en onze inwoners ons landszegel besneden aan deze brief gehangen."

Uit een Friesche oorkonde van 1476 vertaald door Winsemius staat het volgende: "dwaet kund, kanlick ende openbaer alle goede lyuden deer dijsse brief schillen syaen ieff heard lessan, datter ien Schillenghe eff twyspan was twysken Renick Poppasoen op Schillengha fander ener zyde, ende twyska Ybele Silligha Sioerdts Poppasoens weduw, ende hyara beder dochteran ende swageren fan der oder zyde".

Sjoerd stichtte in 1330 een kapel te Oosterend op Terschelling, niet ver van zijn stins. Wellicht is zijn vader Klaas, heer van Terschelling of mogelijk was Sjoerd mederichter van Klaas. Met hem wordt voor het eerst het geslacht genoemd, dat tot de Hollandse machtsovername van 1502 naar Friese traditie de heren van Terschelling zou leveren.

Sjoerd did not found in 1330 a vault too Oosterend on terschelling, far from its stins. Possibly its father klaas is, lord of terschelling or possible was Sjoerd mederichter of klaas.

Hij noemde hem zijn rechter en beval de inwoners en allen die er hun zaken kwamen doen behulpzaam te zijn.

Behalve dit Vlie was er in het noordwesten nog een belangrijk zeegat, namelijk het Marsdiep.

Tussen het middeleeuwse Terschelling en de vaste wal bestonden nauwe banden. Zo ressorteerden de eilander parochies onder het 'Westergose' aartsdiaconaat van Sint Jan. De Johanneskerk van Hoorn werd overgedragen aan de nabije Friese abdij Lidlum en het Friese hoofdelingengeslacht der Popma's bouwde vanuit de omgeving van Oosterend aan zijn machtsbasis op het eiland. Ten zuiden van Oosterend stond de stins van de familie Popma.

Between the medieval terschelling and the fixed rampart narrow links existed. Thus came under the eilander parishes under the ' Westergose ' aartsdiaconaat of sint Jan. The Johanneskerk of Hoorn were transferred to the close friese abbey Lidlum and the friese hoofdelingengeslacht of the Popma's built from the surroundings of Oosterend to its power basis on the island. At south of Oosterend the stins of the family Popma stood. First papers track of the leading group on terschelling date from 1322. the earl of the Netherlands, Willem III of Bavaria, therefore also considered themselves as the legitimate lord of friesland and of terschelling. On 3 May of that year he carried Clays Elfssone on to pass sentence for him, the earl, imposed to collect and in short all rights pay for exercise which him belonged to as an earl to its opinion. He called him are right and please the inhabitants and all came do that there their matter helpful to be. Noorwestelijke the waters according to some historians must be the community of waddeneilanden with the fixed country around 1300 broken. A river mouth which existed already (the later Vlie) became then this way broad and deeply that it became necessary here preserve barrels. Except this Vlie there was still a sea breach important in the northwest, namely the Marsdiep. Senior reported on the betonning in the Vlie date from 1323. it concern an agreement between Claes Popma and mederichters of of the Schellingh, have been closed confessed with the city camps, he who of duke Albrecht jnt Marsdiep "had the right for" barrels moegen legghen jnt Vlie ende. According to the agreement with the city camps Claes with its mederichter set up the "voerhuijs", the land-mark at West-Terschelling. This can on indicate there that earl gave Dutch tintje to Willem with its appointment to a simply existing friese situation. The richter and are mederichter or mederichters were the hoogstgeplaatsten, the malicious country the common free, grondbezittende farmers, eigen-erfden.

One 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 his family of eight (nine?) children and Sophie 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.

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.

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)
