Georgius Justinus Kolff, Bailiff of Spijk
At the time when Georgius Justinus Kolff (A
XIIa) was the Bailiff of Spijk François Cornelis van Aerssen (1725-1793)
and his wife Everdina Petronella gravin van Hogendorp (1730-1794)
were Lord and Lady of Spijk. The witnessed the baptization of his
daughter Everdina Cornelia Kolff at Spijk on 8 March 1778. It must
not have been a coincidence that Georgius Justinus Kolff turned up
in 1790 at Essequibo (Suriname, Dutch later British Guyana), since
François Cornelis van Aerssen also was a gouvernor of the West-Indische
Compagnie (West India Company).
More on George Justinus was found - recently (July 2009) - by the webmaster on internet. This is information regarding the Genealogy: that of George Justinus and of his 2nd wife Marie Brunel and their daughters at Essequibo and Demerary in Guyana. The webmaster (and the archivist) will do more research on these new details).
The family of Maria van Heteren, wife of Wolter Kolff
Searching the registers of baptization and marriages of Nijmegen the
closer relatives of Maria van Heteren (VIII)
were mapped out. It appeared that she was a cousin of the influential
Pontiaen Singendonck, who married in 1601 with Beliken van Heteren.
Almost without any interruption during 1619-1645 Maria's uncle was
mayor of Nijmegen.
