Lineage to Charlemagne and Others.

Many of the present v. O-s paternal lineage goes back to patriarch Aert (van Osenbrugge) b. ~1550. However, if we trace the roots through some female ancestors, we can go back much further to well known historic figures such as the Nijenrodes, Graaf Willem I of Holland, William the Conqueror, Charlemagne (Karel de Grote), the Kings of the Franks and even Claudius Tiberius (10 BC-54).

One of these female ancestors was Teuntje van Dorland (1642-1700), who was married to Hendrick van Osenbruggen (leenman of Culemborg, †Rijswijk), and was a descendant of the Dutch Nijenrode family. Her ancestry can even be traced back to Marc Anthonius, who's second wife was Cleopatra. Marc Anthonius' daughter was the grandmother of Julius Ceasar.

Hendrick and Teuntje's son Willem (1672-1719) was married to Maijken Dirckse Curff. Her family lineage also goes back to William the Conqueror and further. Look here for chart.

Bernt's grandson Willem Hendrikse was a deacon at this (Reformed) church from 1702-1704.

Bernt died before 1658, because his widow remarried on February 14, 1658. Since the baptize registers, in Rijswijk, start at 1638 his birth can't be found (in this village).

~married~ Aelertgen Hendricks (1615-1645)

Hendrick (1635-1695) ~married~ Teuntje Gijsbrechtsdr van Dorland (1642-1700 )

Hendrick Berends (1635-1695)

Hendrik Berends (also written as Berntz), marries Teuntje Gijsberts van Dorland on February 10, 1659. Hendrick's birth is probably before 1638.

Around 1700, the children of Hendrick and Teuntje take the names Van Osenbruggen, Van Osnabrugge, Van Ossenbrugge.
The oldest members of this family married well to do daughters in the Rijswijk region. Being "leenmannen" initially, the possession of orchards, often inherited from their wives' side, indicate that growing fruit was a major source of income during the end of the 17th century and the beginning of the 18th century. In 1985 there was still a fruit grower, named Van Osenbruggen in Rijswijk.

Willem Hendrikse van Os(s)enbrugge (1672-1719) ~married 1~ Mayke Dirks Kurf,
~married 2~ Jannetje Hartogs van de Hair

Willem Hendrikse van Os(s)enbrugge (1672-1719)

Families were fruit & vegetable growers.


Willem was a deacon at the Reformed church in Rijswijk from 1702-1704.
Look here for a large drawing from that time.


In 1719 Willem buys a large farm named De Hope in Rijswijk.
Old records show that on March 10, 1719 the heirs of Heteren sell a farm of 3 mergen and 2 hont to Willem Hendrikse van Oosenbruggen for 445 guilders.
In 1716 he had already bought an adjacent parcel of land of 5 hont.
Old land nomenclature:
1 mergen = 6 hont
1 mergen = 8400 m^2
1 hont = 1400 m^2
1 hectare = 10.000 m^2 = 2.5 acres
Therefore, his land area was a total of 3.5 hectare or 9 acres.
