Can you help as it is difficult to find information from the Netherlands.
My wife is a descendant of Fradrik) Frederick?) de Ridder (Redder?).
He was a Merchant Navy Captain, born around 1794 in the Netherlands. He married Mary Baines in 1812 in Blakeney, Norfolk, UK.
We are trying to find any information we can about his birthplace and/or parents.
This link provides information about his son: http://www.kettlenet.co.uk/kettle/tree/072.htm
Are you able to help?
I wish you success in your own research.
