AD 1420?-1742

Van Opstal (also Van Obstal)

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

This family were originally living at the churchyard ("kerckhoff") in Gilze, near Tilburg. It is interesting to note that the family name only came into use when Jan Wouter Jan Woutersz. began calling himself Van Obstal, probably because this was an easier way of identifying himself. "Van den Kerckhoff" was also a name used for some early members of this family who were living at this churchyard.
