AD 1480?-1638

see page on Ten Hage

Like the van Uitwijk, Van der Dussen, Van Drongelen, and other families in our tree the Schellaert family belonged to the founding fathers in "het Land van Altena", east of Dordrecht and south of Gorinchem, see map. They were heren of Sleeuwijk, a town across the Merwede river from Gorinchem. In 1632 Sleeuwijk consisted of only nine houses, but a century later this number had increased to 61. Nowadays Sleeuwijk is a modern small town of little historical interest.
There are more possible links between this family and other families in our tree: Maria Schellaert, born around 1593, married Jacob van Rijswijk, born around 1575 (occupation heer van der Hille), son of Joost Joostzn van Rijswijk (occupation "schout" and "schepen" of Gorinchem) and Anna Jacobs Snoeck. We do not yet know the missing pieces in this puzzle.
