European Aristocracy
Jacob Abcoude was a member of the aristocracy in Europe.


Lord of Gaasbeek, in 1436 he transferred it to Jan of Horn, lord of Baussignies.[1] In 1445 he's called lord of Gaasbeek, Steyn and Putte as he inherits the lordship of Diepenbeek in name of his wife Margaret of Schoonvorst, daughter of Koenraad, lord of Elslo, the text seems to imply Koenraad was alive but let the inheritance pass directly to them.[2]
