Laagland Family Name 1811
As a result of the Napoleonic decree in 1811 all Friesland residents had to have a family name registered. The head of the household had to have their chosen name registered at the local town hall. This was a huge change, especially in the north and in the east of the Netherlands, where many people had never used a family name.
Hette Klazes chose the surname Laagland.
Hette Klazes registered the Laagland family name on behalf of himself and his three daughters 'Tjitske 33, Antje 26, Akke 25, all of Snikswaag and his son Klaas 30 of Westermeer'. He also registered his son Klaas's two children Teerde Klaasz 5 and Hette Klaasz 5 (months?), both of Westermeer.
