1 Tomas Clasen b: Abt. 1490 in Huizinge, Groningen, The Netherlands d: 1568 in Huizinge, Groningen, The Netherlands Age at death: 78

est. There is information about Tomas and Sytske in the forward of the Huizinga Stamboek. It lists the 10 children and says the 5 oldest

ones married perhaps before 1556. Katrina married in 1556, Eltje before 1567. These names and dates came from Fre Ellens on www.

.... +Sytske (Sytke) Tomes b: 1495 d: 1571 in Huizinge, Groningen, The Netherlands m: Bet. 1520 - 1530 Age at death: 76 est. Had 10

children and Katrina was the 6th child.

Age at death: 41 est. Farmer - he was a "Burchtheer" - a lord or landowner. He lived at Melkema - a large farm near the town of

Huizinge. Abel Huizinga took us there in 1993 and I have a video of this place. He belonged to the Baptist church. His descendants are

listed in the Stamboek 1555 - 1883. That is where I found most of this information on these long ago ancestors. Derk Pieters & Katrina

Tomas are the parents of generation # 1 - Jacob Derks & Katrine Ritzes. Page I. In 2006, Melkema House is still there, present owners

are now running a restaurant and theatre in it. - per JL Bolhuis.

.. 3 Jacob Derks b: 1557 in Huizinge, Groningen, The Netherlands d: Jul 13, 1620 in Maarhuizen, Groningen, The Netherlands Age at

death: 63 est. Stamboek said he was a farmer in Maarhuizen (Winsum). Abel said he was a Mennonite minister and lived at Rasquert by

Baflo, The Netherlands. Stamboek said in 1585 he was a Leeraar der Doopsgezinden to Rasquert (Baflo). Stamboek also said "op de

plaats, later bewoond door Jacob Lippes {IV, 2,3}. This means "lived on the place later lived on by Jacob Lippes".

Maarhuizen/Winsum/Baflo are all within walking distance of each other.-per Robbie Huizinga Their children are listed in Generation II

in Stamboek Robbie Huizinga thought the word "Leeraar" can be translated minister or teacher in this sense as they both teach religion.

and also received some from Abel, I printed for him the direct descendant listing and he said it was correct. He wrote that "in those

days it was often money by money, love was at the second place. Also kinship was closer in those days." Could have died in

Maarhuizen - acc. to Fre Ellens in www. Father: Lippe (Sierts) Syerts Mother: Geele Oomkes

4 children with 1st wife and Geertruid was the first child. He had 6 more children with his second wife. All are listed in

Stamboek Gen. VIII, 80, Page 25. Olfert himself is listed in Stamboek on page 11, VII, 25, 1. "Landb. op Edema to Uithuizen,

later shop keeper en kasteleen to Tinalinge". This quote came from Abel in 1997 from ancestor pages. Father: Luitjen Ulferts

Huizinga in 1997. Born on the Uithuizen farmstead "the Edemaheerd". Lived on this farm named "Edema" in Uithuizen, The

Netherlands She was from the Mennonite Church. On her son Ulferts death record her name is spelled as Geertruida (with an

"a") Wiersum. It is her ancestors that are in the Stamboek, so it is thru  that we go back to Melkema.

...................... +[4] Hindrik (Hendrik) Pieters Huizinga b: Oct 19, 1771 in Oldehove, The Netherlands d: Jul 06, 1817 in Saaksumhuizen, The

Netherlands m: Apr 25, 1800 in Eenrum, The Netherlands. Age at death: 45 He was a farmer-and lived on the Saaksumhuizen

homestead since he bought it in 1811. Both Hendrik and 3 wives died young and left his 4 young children. Abel Huizinga's

book (#7 in the back) says that in 1818 the children received the land because on Jan. 20, 1818 Freerk Pieters Huizinga (farmer

in Baflo) and Tjaard Luitjes Wiersum (guardian and co-guardian of the 4 children) appeared before Mr. Hendrik van Bolhuis,

public notary of Winsum. He and his siblings took on the name of Huizinga, for reason unknown. It is possible that they took

that name from the woman's line (#17 in back of Abel's book). Their farm was large - 78.75 acres. In Abel Huizinga's book #17

Page 14. Al Geurink writes that in 1811 Hendrik bought the Saaxumhuizen farm # 69a of his parents plus the neighboring farm

# 69. On Jan. 20, 1818, he sold both farms to the farmer's couple Meindert Berents Wieringa and wife Trijntje Kars Elzes.

Sellers were the family guardian "Freerk Pieters Huizinga, farmer from Baflo, and the second guardian Tjaard Luitjes Wiersum

of the four underaged children of the deceased Hinkrik Pieters Huizinga and the deceased Geertruid Ulferts Wiersum. The

Page 15. I have his picture with his wife and the house he was born in in Saaksumhuizen. Ulfert/Olfert are the same name. In

1997 Abel gave death date of 12-12-1874. Gary Verver had "He was born 1805 in Saaksumhuizen, Baflo, Groningen,

"Ulfert was 3 years old when his mother died and 13 years old when his father died, the brother of Hindrik Piers became his

guardian and they sold the farm for a price of Fl. 15,555,-. Where he grew up is unknown. In 1826 he went to Houwerzijl and

married Anje Kaasen Lap on June 11, 1829. In 1834 he bought the house in Houwerzijl at Zwartewaterweg 5." per Dirk

Huizinga. Dirk said that his mother told him that "her grandparents Berendina Noordhof and Klaaske Bomers also lived in the

house on Zwarteweg (or Zwartewaterweg) 5 - probably bought the house after Anje Klaasen Lap died." Dirk is the son of

Hendrik Huizinga and Sietske Kooy who I met in Holland in 1993.

...... 5 Lippe Syerts b: Abt. 1608 in Huizinge, Groningen, The Netherlands d: May 31, 1679 in Garsthuizen, The Netherlands Age at death:

71 est. Farmer - name could be Sijerts instead of Syerts. Wilkemaheert was the name of their farm near Garsthuizen (Stedum),

Netherlands. Stamboek - Gen. IV, 2, Page 2. He was from the Mennonite Church. From Melkema. The Stamboek says Lippe's wife's

name is Trijntje Jans. In March 2006, I talked to Abel Huizinga again about this as earlier he had told me Lippe's wife's name was

Aechtie Jans. This is what he wrote to me, "When Martje Lippes got married her parents are named Lippe Sijerts and Aechtie Jans and

they are also parents of Jan & Jacob Lippes. They also had a daughter Geertje married to Luyrd Lues. This pair had 2 daughters. In

the Melkema book are some mistakes. If Lippe Syerts was married before to Trijntje Jans it is not proven. The possibility is there.

Anyway, Aechtie Jans is the mother of his 4 children." In April 2006 I received information from Sjouwke Nube and she had both

women as Lippe's wives along with these dates of birth, death, marriage. She also had the 4 children belonging to Aechtie Jans. I am

going to put Trijntje Jans as Lippe's first wife. Sjouwke's info. is found in the ancestor papers of Florence Venhuizen that she sent me

in April 2006.

Saaksumhuizen homestead since he bought it in 1811. Both Hendrik and 3 wives died young and left his 4 young children.

Abel Huizinga's book (#7 in the back) says that in 1818 the children received the land because on Jan. 20, 1818 Freerk Pieters

Huizinga (farmer in Baflo) and Tjaard Luitjes Wiersum (guardian and co-guardian of the 4 children) appeared before Mr.

Hendrik van Bolhuis, public notary of Winsum. He and his siblings took on the name of Huizinga, for reason unknown. It is

possible that they took that name from the woman's line (#17 in back of Abel's book). Their farm was large - 78.75 acres. In

Abel Huizinga's book #17 Page 14. Al Geurink writes that in 1811 Hendrik bought the Saaxumhuizen farm # 69a of his

parents plus the neighboring farm # 69. On Jan. 20, 1818, he sold both farms to the farmer's couple Meindert Berents Wieringa

and wife Trijntje Kars Elzes. Sellers were the family guardian "Freerk Pieters Huizinga, farmer from Baflo, and the second

guardian Tjaard Luitjes Wiersum of the four underaged children of the deceased Hinkrik Pieters Huizinga and the deceased

Geertruid Ulferts Wiersum. The farms were sold for a total sum of 15 thousand 555 guilders. Father: Pieter Jans Mother:
