Hello Roy,

I think his name was Dirk Huijer. He came from the village (?) called Boekholt which was the old spelling (I think) of his birthplace , today called Bocholt in Munsterland, Germany. Years ago, maybe this village was part of Holland? Limburg province? I don't know for sure, it is just a guess... the borders changed over time. You could research that.

There is another man mentioned on the document, Barend Kamshoof, with whom Dirk lived. The street (straat) name is there.. Anjelierstraat? but it is difficult to read... also Geadstraat? Anna Bosman lived on Palmstraat which was also near Geadstraat.

Is it possible these streets were in Amsterdam? You could look on a map or gazetteer or directory for a place with streets called Palmstraat and Anjelierstraat and Geadstraat.

Do you have any idea how old this document is? It mentions also that Dirk was 24 years old, and Anna was 26 years old. If you know the year of this record, you could estimate their birth years.

The other ancestors you mentioned... how are they related to Dirk Huijer? Were they born before or after him?

I see the word "Rooms" attached to both Dirk and Anna. I think it refers to a religion, Roman (Romsche?) Catholic??
