Property in Delft owned by members
of Leeuwenhoek's extended family

Oude Delft 26

Cornelis Maertens Hogenhouck (-1656) paid the 1620-1632 verponding 455r3 and the 1632-1654 verponding 466r2. The entry references E0537 now Koornmarkt 41a - “see folio 935”. The back end of E0541 is close enough to the back end of E0538 now Koornmarkt 41 that the gardens may have been connected in the 1600's. The progression of owners and sales letters was the same for all three properties: Hogenhouck, de Bock/van Leeuwen, Keiser, Overschie.
