AD 1480?-1726

Hagoort (also Van Hagoort)

For younger generations of ancestors who are descended from this family:
see page on Boll

The family took their name from Hagoort (or Haechoort), which used to be a village in "het Land van Altena" east of Dordrecht and south of Gorinchem, see map, where they were living at the time. Towards the end of the second World War the old village was destroyed, and nowadays a few scattered new farms and houses remain. Hagoort could however not have been the original hometown of this family, since Gerrit Adriaensz' was called "the Hollander", meaning that he must have had his roots in the Province of Holland (Gorinchem?), apparently unlike most people in Hagoort, who probably would have been from Brabant. More information on the Hagoort family can be found in Piet Groeneweg's homepage.

Children of
Gerrit Adriaensz. (van Hagoort) (1545?-1638?)
and Unknown

1. Jacobus Gerritsz. Hagoort
* 1574? + ?

2. Aert Gerritsz. Hagoort
* 1576? x I. Marijke Cornelisd. II. Emmeke Samuelsd. (Dussen 14-10-1626) + ?

3. Sophia Gerritsd. Hagoort
* 1578? x David der Pyre (also De Pierre or Du Piere) + ?
Sophia's husband was the first Protestant clergyman of Hill and Babyloniënbroek in "het Land van Altena" from 1610 to 1652. He was a "Gomarist" (or "contra-remonstrant"), representing a strict school of thought which emphasized predestination, rather than free will. Even as the 80-years war of independence from Spain was still not quite finished, great religious and political conflicts arose within the emerging Dutch state between the "Gomaristen" and the "Arminianen" (or "remonstranten"), who held more liberal beliefs. The reverend David had quite a feud with his Arminian colleague Grevius in Heusden. Fortunately for David and Sophia, "Stadhouder" Prince Maurits of Orange decided in 1617 to end these conflicts by supporting the Gomarists and ban the Arminian school of thought. As a way of making this very clear, the former political teacher of the Prince, the able and well-loved "raadspensionaris" (acting head of government) Johan van Oldenbarneveldt, an Arminian who also had differing views on ending the war with Spain, was executed in 1618 on fabricated charges of "high treason". The reverend Grevius was dismissed. David and Sophia's daughter Janneke wanted to marry her uncle Jacob Gerritsz. "Hollander" from Hagoort (apparently after the death of Leijntje Jansd. van Son?) but her father was very much against this. We do not know how this ended. There is also a reference to Maria Davids du Piere (who must have been another daughter of David and Sophia), who was the second wife of Dirck Dircksz. van Clootwijck, related in the 4th degree to our ancestor Jan Reynaerts van Clootwijck (1440-1518).
