On the origin of Henrik de Hemmer

+1 vote
I would like to where he was born in 1520s in Aalborg (Denmark) but as some suggested that he emigrated from the Eight Years War in Heusden in Geldern/Westphalen probably around 1570s. However, in case of the Dutch equivalent naming, Henrijk van Hemert, there were possible another surname under "van Haeften" to which is a topography also in Geldern (Holland). Above all can we get closer to what name and dates his parents had and where they came from?  At once thanks!

I'm looking for the same man. At least I now know that his ancesterscame from Nederhemert near Heusden in Holland. They owned Kasteel Nederhemert until 1546. They came from a nobel famely caled de Cock van Hemert that original came from Châtillon-sur-Marne. Raoul van Châtillon aka Rudolph I de Cock 1225 - 1283 got the name Cocq and his son was Gijsbert de Cocq van Hemert, Lord of Nederhemert - app.1258 - 1280.

I'm sure thet Henrik de Hemert came from that famely as there coats of arms are almost semilar. - But I do not know the line from Gijsbert de Cocq van Hemert to Henrik de Hemmer. I Hope this can be helpfull, and that we can help each other.

All The best from Annette Damgaard, Denmark
