Before standard surnames, people were also named for their hometown or occupation. But I believe that if a Dutch man named Seger had a son named Hendrick, his son might be called Hendrick Segers (one s). His grandson might be called Segerss (two s). You can see this in Martyrs Mirror at http://www.homecomers.org/mirror/ where some Segers were persecuted for their Mennonite faith.
