Hello

This is a rather old post but I was searching on van der Puije and wanted to find out the history of this family (I am a descendant). Did you make progress in your research?

Hello Mr. Lamptey,

I have not been here for a long time and just saw your post. A historical reference was found that mentioned one as a brief governor of Elmina Castle. Little information was forthcoming from the Netherlands because the records in Middleburg which is the ancestral home were destroyed during World War II. A reputable and effective Dutch genealogist might be of some help but I have not had the time to locate one. The one I tried wasn't much help. The family's founder Jacobus had a coat of arms and a mottto : "Stella Duce". I have not been able to determine the colours of the coat of arms which is unfortunate because Heraldry could determine more information based on those colours.

I hope this is of help.

My family tree indicates that Jacobus van der Puije, Governor of Elmina, Gold Coast, in 1780, son of William van der Puije from Zeeland, born in 1703, is my great, great, great, grandfather. Jacobus had a son Peter with a local lady, Ayaley Ablah. Peter later became Commandant of Birecco. The van der Puije family in Ghana now is very huge and we are eager to trace our ancestry as far as possible. I would therefore be extremely grateful to get more information about my ancestor Jacobus van der Puije.
