Familiewapens op lakstempels / zegelstempels,
soms bekend, soms onbekend.
Coat of arms on wax seal stamps,
sometimes known, sometimes unknown.
Collection: Delta 98 Den Haag, The Hague, The Netherlands


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 
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
