As far as I could find out, our family(name) dates back to 1400. Originally from what is now the noth-west of Belgium (Vlaanderen or Flanders)and/or the south-west of Holland (Zeeuws-Vlaanderen).
The exact translation in English is; someone going to heaven. Though I could not find any religious connection through the centuries. Our ancastors were craftsmen and workers.
