I am very busy with the Hagewolt-family because it's my mothers' family.
The oldest Hagewolt I have is Johan Hagewolt. About 1500 he was the third sherrif of Rouveen, a village which was founded a few tens of years before. In that same period also an Albert Hagewolt, with his wife Mette, lived in Rouveen. They sold land to the nuns of Zwartewaterklooster.
I think that the Hagewolt-family originate from a small hamlet south to Hasselt, which doens't exist anymore. That hamlet was called Haudighwold. The Hagewoldfamily used to live in Hasselt in the 17th and 18th century. They also lived in Meppel. The Meppel Hagewolts' though originated from Rouveen.
Hagewolts can be found in Rouveen untill about 1800. Members of the family moved mainly to De Wijk and Ruinerwold.
If you want to know more about the Hagewolt (nowadays Hagewoud) family, I hear from you.
