Sir Easton and Sparwoude

Sir Ian Easton married into the Van Duyn-Sparwoude bloodline and thus has ties to the Illuminate according to this author. Ian’s marriage was dissolved. Did he marry for money and a title? Rena was thirty-four when they got married. She had two children late in life. Did Ian do a background check?

Did Ian hound Margarethe to claim some of Clara’s money? Did she lie about getting it? We are talking about The Thirteen.

In 1970 I considered asking Rena to be my wife. In 1985 I married Mary Ann Tharaldsen who descends from Leif Ericson. Mary Ann was married to Thomas Pynchon who wrote Vineland.

Leif was the son of Erik the Red and his wife Thjodhild, and the grandson of Thorvald Asvaldsson.

I mentioned a Mexican woman in the Christensen bloodline. Was a line of this family amongst the Mormons who created colonies in Mexico? Vikings! Consider the Buck Foundation.

 The Van Duyns are connected to the Dutch East and West India Companies. Information on this family is sketchy, but defectors from the Illuminati who have converted to Christianity, confirm their part in the Illuminati bloodline.

Clara Van Spaerwoude (or Sparwoude) (1530-1615) was a noblewoman in Delft, who donated part of her estate upon death to the families of her half-brother Adriaan and half-sister Maritgen. You can read more about here in English here or Dutch here

From a genealogical standpoint, the interesting thing about Clara’s Sparwoudefonds is that you had to prove a relationship to Adriaan or Maritgen to claim the money – and this continued up until the early 20th century.

An official in the Dutch government was tasked with researching the descendants and disbursing the money. An example for my family, which I don’t have access to, is “dossier Van Duyn (Westland) (CBG), auteur E. A. van Duyn, ‘s-Gravenhage. Met stukken betreffende het Sparwoudefonds: Bijvoegsel tot de Nederlandsche Staatscourant Woensdag 29 December 1926, no. 253.” There are other examples for other surnames.

Does anyone have a background in exploring the genealogy of the Sparwoudefonds? It may be an interesting project, and helpful to those researching Dutch genealogy that relates to those claiming the funds

Clara Jansdochter van Spaerwoude (sometimes written Sparwoude) (ca. 1530 – 4 August 1615) was a Dutch noblewoman of Delft who is chiefly remembered for her great wealth and various charitable funds from her estate. The most famous of these granted a sum of money to each of her relatives and their descendants upon their marriage, and was in continuous operation until 1922, when the monies were liquidated by the Dutch government.

Life and legacy[edit]

Clara was the daughter of Jan Heyndrixzn. (1477–1552) a goldsmith of Delft, and his second wife Willemtgen Willemsdr (1495–1564). In 1556 she married Arent Vranckenzn. van der Meer (died 1596), a high-ranking city official and burgemeester in Delft. Following her death on 4 August 1615, she was interred on 8 August in the Oude Kerk in Delft, where her prominent tomb is visible still.

As Clara and her husband had no children together, upon her death she donated her considerable riches to various charitable projects, including a fund for “poor relations”, typically interpreted as meaning all descendants of her elder half-brother Adriaan and younger half-sister Maritgen. A payment was made to each relation upon their wedding.

Originally a considerable sum of money, the amount paid dwindled over the centuries as a result of inflation and the increasing number of “relations.” In the early 20th century the Dutch government retained an official whose responsibilities included maintaining the pedigree of Clara van Spaerwoude’s family and disbursing the funds to qualifying relatives.

By the 1920s the fund still held half a million guilders, but the payment per relation had dwindled to the equivalent of €11.35. In 1922 the Dutch government passed a law liquidating the balance of the fund and dispensing it among the poorest 10% of adult van Spaerwoude relations.

In 1626, Peter Minuit traded some trinkets to the Canarsie Indians to purchase Manhattan Island.

The history books like to report the value of the trinkets as $24. The purchase was supposedly a good deal for the Dutch. The Canarsie Indians didn’t own Manhattan Island, it belonged to other Indians, so it is debatable who got the best deal that day. That was the beginning of the Dutch colony of New Netherlands, and its capital New Amsterdam, built beside Ft. Amsterdam, all three later renamed New York.

The Van Duyn family (also spelled Van Dien, Van Duyne, et. al.) was one of the Dutch families to come over to the Dutch colony of New Netherlands which was connected to the Dutch West India Company. Other early important New Netherlands families from the Netherlands include Van Sise, Van Cleef (also spelled Van Cleve and Van Cleave), Van Coorn, Van de Water, Dooren, and Stoothoff.

In 1649, fifteen years before the British took New Netherlands from the Dutch, Gerret Cornellissen Van Duyn immigrated with his older sister from Brabant, Netherlands (Brabant is a district so. of Eindhoven in southern Netherlands, but at the time Van Duyn came over it included Belgium.) to New Amsterdam.

(This date is according to Claypool, Edward A. Descendants of Dennis Van Duyn and Alice Tunison Chicago, IL. In contrast to this The National Cyclopaedia Vol. 4?, p. 258 states that he came over in 1640 which is a mistake because that was his date of birth.)

For some reason, Gerret Cornelius Van Duyn returned to Holland to Zwolle on the east side of the Zuider Zee, although he had originally lived in Nieuwkerk in Zeeland before going to New Netherlands, America. Gerrit C. Van Duyn was a coarse, non-spiritual, ignorant man who did carpenter work. His lack of interest in Christianity seems to have carried down through quite a number of generations. After coming to the New World again, he moved away from New Amsterdam fairly quickly to New Utrecht. (Now I believe that is where Greenwich Villiage is.)

Leif was the son of Erik the Red and his wife Thjodhild, and the grandson of Thorvald Asvaldsson. His year of birth is most often given as c. 970 or c. 980.[7] Though Leif’s birthplace is not accounted for in the sagas,[8] it is likely he was born in Iceland,[4] where his parents met[7]—probably somewhere in Breiðafjörður, and possibly at the farm Haukadal where Thjodhild’s family is said to have been based.[4] Leif had two brothers, Thorstein and Thorvald, and a sister, Freydís.[9]
Thorvald Asvaldsson was banished from Norway for manslaughter and went into exile in Iceland accompanied by young Erik. When Erik was himself banished from Iceland, he traveled further west to an area he named Greenland, where he established the first permanent settlement in 986.[8][10] Tyrker, one of Erik’s thralls, had been specially trusted to keep in charge of Erik’s children, as Leif later referred to him as his “foster father”.[11]
