Great6: Von Haften and Van Abcou(w)

English: Castle Galesloot by Jutphaas, drawing by Jacobus Stellingwerff, around 1700

Johannes van Haften was baptized on July 28th 1715 in Jutphaas, province of Utrecht, son of Volkert van Haften and Niesje Adriaans Gijssen, and he was possibly buried on February 22nd 1784 in Amsterdam. 

His intended marriage with Clara van Abcou(w) was on May 14th 1745 in Amsterdam and they married on May 30th 1745 in Breukelen. Clara van Abcou(w) was born in Oegstgeest, province of South Holland. I haven’t found her baptism or burial.

I received a very generous letter with the following information from a Dutch person researching their own tree. Jeffrey Lieuwen

The province of Soth Holland was created in 1840 by the division of the province of Holland. It includes a mainland part and the islands of Goeree-Overflakkee, Voorne-Putten, Beijerland-Hoekse Waard, Ijsselmonde. Provincial capital - The Hague (Dutch: Den Haag) is also a seat of the Dutch parliament and government an an important center of the Dutch political life since the Middle Ages. Several interesting old cities as Delft, Leiden, Gouda, and good sea resorts with sandy beaches with Scheveningen the most known.
