What happened to his house?
My thanks to Johan Geertzenwijk for providing the following information about the owners of the property after 1800. By then, Leeuwenhoek's house was considered one parcel. The Kadaster map of 1832, which labeled them C 153 and C 154 was revised in 1859. At that time, what were two properties during Leeuwenhoek's life were united under one number, C1507.
