Unknown or... Drooglever - de Bie

an 18th century wax seal stamp
with a confusing coat of arms


we think it might have belonged to a person with relationship to two families

Drooglever and De Bie

also written as or changed into
Droogleever, Drooglever Fortuyn, De Bije

the coat of arms we see here:
in silver an embattled black / sable fess 
with on it a lion passant, between seven bees (4 and 3)

we found two occassions where the two families are mentioned together:

in 1739, the marriage of Paulus GerritZn Drooglever & Petronella De Bie,
see: Parenteel van Ambrosius De Bije, go to no.159 to find them and their children

and
in 1770, the built of Het Hofje Van Mevrouw Van Aarden / Aerden
 in Leerdam, The Netherlands

Hofjes or Almshouses in Holland were managed by a board of members called Regenten,
Paulus Drooglever and Huibert De Bie were Regenten of that hofje,
their coat of arms are present in the building since 1770-1772


terms in Dutch: in zilver een beurtelings / gekanteelde en tegengekanteelde dwarsbalk van zwart / sabel, beladen met een gaande leeuw, vergezeld van zeven bijen, 4 in het schildhoofd, 3 in de schildpunt, als helmteken een gesloten vlucht met ernaast een onduidelijk voorwerp

Unknown


a wonderful wrought / forged iron 
17th century 
wax seal stamp, made in the form of the flower of the
Crocus Sativus
protecting the Safran inside

 the matrix has a heraldic coat of arms, showing:
on the shield a tree in full leaf,
as supporters two lions, 
one half and rampant, 
the other lion rampant and rear regardant with tongue and tail,
as crest a barred helmet 
an outcoming, half lion with tongue, tail and sword


we have not been able to trace this coat of arms

We have been looking for the combination 
of safran with the image on the matrix.
We came across the Swiss village Linn, 
in the kanton of Aargau in the Schrattentahl.
This village has a single tree as it's coat of arms,
that tree represents the famous 
Lime tree of Linn
also called the
Linner Linde or d' Lende vo Lenn
The region of Aargau is known for it's safran culture.
Safran was used as medicin during the pandemic plague of the Black Death 
during the 14th, up into the 19th century.

A saga of the Linn Tree is about the victims died of that plague,
who have been burried in a mass grave outside the village
and the tree was planted on that spot.
