Van der Straaten Emblem,German Origin ?Dutch Name ?
Posted by: Nina Van dort Van Dort (ID *****3669) Date: November 29, 2003 at 04:14:13
  of 2355

I would like to Ask If there is a good Explanation with Document Proof ,
on the Van der Straaten Family from Ceylon

If Coporal Engelbertus van der straaten
was born in singen ,Baden(Germany)

The Emblem is not Dutch as we found out,
then this Line comes from Germany,
I have the Family emblem but am not sure which part of germany it drives, from ?
Also On my Part I came across of a
"von der stra -E -ten , Family in the Near of Hamburg area,
Every thing can Happen under the SUN!
this is not to Say
"The Van der straatens are this Family ,but the names Does Ring Into theirs ?!!"

I was myself very Shocked Then Admused,As Later on I was told "they " came from Gérmany , It made an impression on me.
When Genealogy´s not known , I beat the Grass, You be surprise ?? at the Feedbacks !

This documentation does not take place in Singen ,as The Data were Destroyed (World War II )
thus making a New Central center in Stuttgard, Germany
It was told That I should look into the stuttgard Area.
As the emblem should be Around this Aerea.

That is why I have to Hang on this family Emblen for Another source ,As Family documentation,
(as in the old days)

Does any one know where to Ask In stuttgard ?

I am sure there must be some kind of heraldic Documentation.?
it seens there is a Famaily Link to the Early Ancestors before Engelbertus Van der straaten,
A female Member with the name
( von ) - Hannah /Hannen / Hainen ? Can be All varitions
German Origin.
This was an Insider Van der straaten Tip.

This member is a Source as a Link to the German high Astrocrats in Germany .
Also the Colours are Pastel,Giving me a late Baroke Impression, Very undifinate , as Family Colours .(Hope Coporal Engelbertus did not go to War in them! sorry ,!)

(Well it is for me not personally Important (Royals here & there ) - but All Data helps to form a Better Family Documentation . I Only want Propper Documentation done .)

Also I would like to ask on Data on my Great grand Father ,
Edwin Arthur van der straaten,
born in Ceylon born 27-Octember 1867
(who married , 2-7-1892 his first cousin Evagelin (Eva )Van Dort.

His Parents are John Engelbert van der Straaten & Sarah Nancy Van Dort,
(d/o of Johannas Vd & Margretta Protenella Kalenberg.)
Ewin v der straaten ´s Grand mother is Agida Van Dort.

Edwin van der straaten was a Locomotive Driver for the Malayan railways in 1900.
Could be he was even Earlier in Malaya.

Due to a picture of the Malayan Railways in 1893, where many of his family were Active in the Raiways,
Active work started in Malayan Railway some 5o Good Years before this Date ,Bringing Many Burghers to Malaya.To be Active civil servants of the British Empire.

Could any One give me a tip , to where I could write to ask on him ,thanks,
Or Does any One know When He died /was Buried ? in Malaya.

I have made a Documentation to prove an Errow
(Written by Altendoft and van der Wall ) on

Johannas (Jocobus;Note there are a few, which started this Mistake )Van Dort

In the Van Dort & Van der straaten Genealogies it was done very Clever only to Mention Johannas Van Dort(And was Correct too. Complied by the same Gentelmen)

It is a mistake that
Under the Kalenberg Genealogy
see Margretta Pertronella Kalenberg
married a Johannas Jocobus Van Dort ,
s/o of Johannas C Van Dort & Neydorff,
(This is incorrect )

She married Johannas (? Jocobus ) son of Leonard Van dort & Frincina Perera..

Why I am Mixing the Van Dort & van der straaten Genealogy ? here is because My Line goes 4 generations ,Linking these names

Agida Van Dort is Daughter of Leonard Van dort & frincina Perera,(Agida VD married Pieter engelbert van der straaten)

Agida Van Dort ´s (Only ) brother
is Johannas Van Dort

Johannas Van Dort´s Daughter, Sarah Nancy Van Dort married her 1st cousin
John godfred Lewis (Ewdin ) van der straaten.( His Mother Agida Vd )

Sarah VD & John Godfred L (Ewin ) van der straaten ´s son
Edwin Arthur van der straaten
married his 1st Cousin
Evagelin (Eva ) Van Dort
(d/o Willem Van Dort(Proctor Gampola 1863) & Dorothea christina Botejü.

Edwin VDS & Eva Van Dort Daughter
Antonette Edith van der straaten , Married Aelain Van Dort.
Thus Making Aelian Vd & Edith vdS, A variety of Connections .Between Themselves.

The 4 Non stop Union , of the Van Dort -van der Straaten.
Helps Prove Johannas (J ? )Van Dort ,
Is the son of frincina Perera & Leonard Van Dort,
As sure as I am sitting here. I Hope .

There was a mistake to Link him to Neydorff & Johannas cornelius Van Dort,
Which is A complete Other Line,
I hope Corrections will be made,.on the kalenberg genealogy , & this issiue Rest .
Thanks for your Patience.Nina.Van Dort
Pls Excuse the doubel Van dort my KeyBoard got jamed.
