cousin Lambrecht's son Adriaen Lambrechts Leeuwenhoek (1662-1739), the notary, had his license suspended by the Heren van de Weth for “disrespect” and “disobedience”. They seized his recrods and he left Delft, even though he continued to act as a notary for another year, according to the Burg geneology.
