AD 1600?-1703

Soetricks (also Soetrix)

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

The Soetricks family were Roman Catholics originally. Apparently this gave problems when Cornelia Soetricks married Antony van Opstal, a Dutch Reformed Protestant, as these were uncertain times as far as religious freedom was concerned. Their son Peter's eldest children were first christened Dutch Reformed, and a few days later Roman Catholic as well. Their younger children were christened either Dutch Reformed or Roman Catholic, apparently reflecting the changes in political climate. All later descendants were Roman Catholics again.
