pictures of houses, etc. The family declined in the 1600's after the seige of Maastricht. I have had mtDNA tests done by "FamilytreeDNA" (Haplogroup H). I would be interested to compare, since there is a - not very credible - story that we would originally have come from England (Hampshire). If it's any lead: Coat of arms is (1) three red
lions rampant on gold, (2) three silver roses on red, (3) four golden hammers on blue, and (4) a green oakbranch on silver.
