A son Charles and his two parents from Netherlands to Maryland 1759-60

I am looking for potential surnames of a family who moved from the Netherlands to Maryland around 1759-60. It is believed they changed their name to Holland. Perhaps they were from Holland, and their name was a bit complicated. I don't know. The firstborn son, born in the Netherlands, was named Charles (b 1758). If anyone might be able to do some research over there, I would be more than happy to help pay for any time/copies/etc. if there is any possible record from that period. After arriving to Maryland, the family later had two more sons, Thomas and Jacob. They may have been merchants of some kind while in Maryland. The father later moved with his son Thomas to Alabama/Limestone County. Any information or tips would be appreciated.
