After some further research, I have discovered that my ancestors came from Laren near Amsterdam, before they eventually made their way down to Den Haag. I have also discovered an earlier generation. See my previous posting for the main tree, but amend the earliest known ancestor to read "Hermanus Willemse de Rijk" (rather than simply "Harmen") who was married to Grietje Gerrits Bakker. He was born about 1779 in Laren. Also, add his father who was Willem de Rijk, married to Marijtje Kempen. That gets me back to about the 1750s.
