The family tree for the period 1650-1800 is still under construction. It is based only on baptism, marriage and burial registers. This restriction may have resulted in incorrect interpretations, i.e. an incorrect integration into the family tree. After all, the following also applies in genealogy: one source is no source!

Further archive research will take place as have been done for the family tree period 1430-1650. Thereby family data will be sought in judicial and notarial deeds, as well as in orphans court documents and tax records. This will result into a more solid foundation, but may also lead to corrections.

Family branches

The family tree for the period 1650-1800 consists of 13 branches which are listed in the following scheme.

Growing and extinct branches of the Van Bohe(e)men family in 1650-1800.

The two green-colored branches continue to grow in the subsequent period 1800-1950. Together they count 181 persons becoming the Van Bohe(e)men family name at birth.

The nine pink-colored bars concern family branches extincting in the period 1650-1800 (together 110 family members). This happens because male members die young, remain unmarried or have a childless marriage.

Five fathers forming a starting point of a branch are brothers. This five are mentioned at the left side of the scheme. They are sons of Dirk Jansz. van Bohemen, He can be found in the family tree for the period 1430-1650.

At the right side of the scheme, you can see the amount of generations distinguished in the period 1650-1800 and the number of family members belonging to these generations. For exemple, the green-colored branch of Cornelis Dirksz. van Bohemen has 4 generations with 140 family members. The other growing branch of Cornelis Jansz. van Bohemen has six generations with 45 family members.

Most branches have a label. For example, the family branch of Gerrit Jacobsz van Bohemen (also named Vercroft) is named Leiden baker’s branch. This label corresponds with the most common place of residence and the most common profession  among the members of the first generations.

The different labels illustrate that, already shortly after 1650, a part of the family works outside agriculture and has been urbanized. Examples are the The Hague soldier’s branch iand  the Leiden baker’s branch.
