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 where some Segers were persecuted for their Mennonite faith.
