research by Delta 98 Den Haag: a wax seal from Christine Roelants - Cremer van den Berch van Heemstede

 an antique wax seal stamp with the coat of arms of

Roelants / Roelands
and also used in the 17 and 18th Century by
Collemans / Kollemans
(click on the following images to enlarge)

a painting in the collection of Museum Rotterdam
by Pieter Tiele, dated 1769, with a view in Rotterdam, titled:
Gezicht op de Korenbeurs aan het Steiger

showing 5 coats of arms / wapenschilden / familiewapens

the 4th is described by the Museum Rotterdam as of
I. Hendrikus Gollemansto my opion this should be Collemans
for Iohannes / Johannes Hendricus Collemans,
dean of the bag carriers / bearers guild Rotterdam



searching Roelants because the same coat of arms:


and Roelants - Collemans:


Francois / Fransois Martinusz Collemans / Colleman (1685 or 1690 - 1757)
married in 1714 with
Maria Catharina Pietersd Roelands / Roelants (1689 - 1732)


and because the provenance of the stamp is the estate of the family 
van den Berch / Bergh
the search went on to find a connection:

Christine / Christina Elisabeth Roelants (1822-1902)
married in 1840 with
Isaac Lambertus Cremer van den Bergh / Berch van Heemstede 
(1811-1879)
and we found a picture with the married couple:


  but ..... all the above might be coincidental ... 
or the result of my unbridled imagination

in Dutch: familiewapen Roelants / Roelands en Collemans / Kollemans, wapen: drie gebladerde aren / korenaren naast elkaar geplant in de grond, helmteken: een wereldbol / globe omgord door een ring, schuin rustend op de wrong en helm

unknown but....... Curtius, Kurz, de Cort, Kortum, Korten, Kort, Cort, Kurs .........

 

we could not find an exact similar coat of arms,
the most near came 

Kurz of Prague / Praha


and the coat of arms described on the Curtius Website with in the 
General Armorial of J.B. Rietstap, for the family

de Cort - Cort (de) - P. de Liege, de Curtius, Cort Heyligers, Holl.


the name Curtius goes way back, documented in the
Nuremberg Chronicle:


the Liber Chronicarum by Hartmann Schedel, printed in Nuremberg by Anton Koberger in 1493, or Nuremberg Chronicle as it is generally called, is one of the most important German incunables and the most extensively illustrated book of the 15th century



various ways the name was written:
de Cort, de Corte, Korte, Korten, Kurtz, Kurtze, Cortum, Corthum, Kortum, Khurtz, Curtze, Korten, Korth, Kurs, Kurt, Kurtzer

Liesbeth / Elisabeth Margaretha Julia Vrijland (1955-2021),

daughter of Cornelis Wilhelmus Derk Vrijland (1916-2012) 

and

Bartha / Adriana Engelbartha Fraser (1918-2006)


- this Fraser wax seal is sold to an US collection -

the Vrijland / Vryland coat of arms 
is documented at the CBG - The Hague as:
a shield quarterly, 
I and IV - in red / gules, per fess of silver / argent between stars,
II and III - in red / gules a roze with leaves (on our stamp it looks like a tulip), a crescent and in blue / azure two stars

the Fraser coat of arms at the CBG:
a shield quarterly,
I and IV - in blue / azure, three flowers / frases (on our stamp they are depicted as stars)
II - in gold / Or, a lion rampant, debruised by a riband of red / gules,
III - in red / gules a lion rampant
as crest an ostrich holding a horseshoe in it's beak,
as motto: In God Is All
after some limited research we found Bartha Fraser to be 
the daughter of Jan Fraser (1871-1949)
the son of Jan Jacob Fraser (1896 born in Middelburg)
son of Gerrit Hubertus Fraser,
son of Hugh Adriaan Fraser (1815 born in Vlissingen)
son of Jan Fraser (1776-1852)
son of Hugh / Huybrecht Fraser (1745-1823)

son of Alexander Fraser (born circa 1720) and Anna McCulloch, they married in 1745 in Abernethy and Kincardine, Moray, Scotland

the coat of arms, specific with angels as supporters and motto God Is All, 
leads us to the 18th Century 
House of Fraser of Saltoun, Lords of Philorth and Fraserburgh

see here below no. 17 (click to enlarge)


And what about the ostrich with a horseshoe in it's beak?

For centuries, in several cultures, one thought ostriches 
were fond of eating metal objects
William Shakespeare writes in The Second Part of King Henry VI:

I'll make thee eat iron like an ostrich and swallow my sword like a great pin

known: two brothers Van den Bergh marry sisters Cock and the lamb or cow of the family Crucius

            an 18th century iron fob or wax seal pendant, 

known as a SWIVEL, with triple matrix, a scrollwork frame and 

a central clutch to push down to hold the to be used matrix in place,

we see:

a conjugal coat of arms, for a marriage

I. a castle with towers and reversed flags / vanes of the family 

Van den Bergh / Berch

II.  a bend between two escallops of the family 

Cock

for the marriage in 1746 of

Pieter Van den Bergh (1708-1783) and Johanna Hadewich Cock (1702-1768)

no children documented

or

 Jan Van den Bergh (1707-1737) and Adriana Geertruid Cock (1705-1734)

their daughter, Cornelia Helena Van den Bergh (1733-1741), died at the age of 8

Pieter and Jan were sons of 

Isaac Van den Bergh (1677-1728) and Cornelia van Leeuwen (1675-1753)

Johanna Hadewich Cock and Adriana Geertruid Cock were daughters of 

Mattheus Cock and Hendrica Cornelia Bouman,

and perhaps the above: no children and early deaths, might explain the empty third matrix


a coat of arms, quarterly with inescutcheon

I.  Van den Bergh - a castle with towers and reversed flags / vanes

II. van Leeuwen - a red chevron with three escallops



III. Crucius - per fess in green a lambalso refered to as a cow and a cross pattee


for mothers side of Isaac Van den Bergh: 

Sara Crucius (1651-1687) 


she married in 1675 with Christoffel Van den Bergh (1639-1719) 

Crucius is also documented as: Kruisius, Crutius, de la Croix


IV. Reijnders / Reynders - in gold, a double headed eagle 

for mothers side of Cornelia van Leeuwen: 

Anna Reijnders (1645-1699) married with Jan van Leeuwen


V. in blue / Azure two crossed swords


in Holland we found this coat of arms for: Riebeeck / Riebeek, 

but no relationship with Bergh / Berch found.

We think it might be derived from the coat of arms / armoirie / blason of 

Jean de la Cour, seigneur De Buisson et vicomte de Caen or 

the blason of Buisson de Champigny en France-Comte, 

in Holland the French name De Buisson et de la Caen was probably written as 

Debuissonet de la Cane 

we found documented:

Maries des Marquis de Buissonet de la Cane (1599-1669), 

she married in 1617 with Isaac van den Berch (1595-1665)


as supporters two lions rampant regardant 

and topped with a five leaf crown

and beneath it all a ribbon with a small face,

the third matrix is vacant / empty
