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

the Hogenhouck family

Koornmarkt 20

Abraham Maertens Hogenhouck (1580-1641) and his son Maerten Abrahams Hogenhouck (1617-1673) paid the 1632-1654 verponding 336r3, 336r4. In 1642, two properties were united, when Maerten Abrahams, who had inherited from his father Abraham Maertens, bought the property to the north from the widow of Adriaen Pieters Crouser (4f297). Maerten died in 1673 and bequeathed the combined property to his son Abraham Maertens (1649-1708) in 1675. After that, their ownership history becomes the same. Both went to Coccejus with the same sales letter. Was this the brewery the Eenhoorn? It was 1 property south of Koornmarkt 24, one of the Graswinckel family's breweries after 1658.

Margareta Maertens Hogenhouck (1588-1648) lived here with husband Engelbert (Egbert) Jacobsz Pau (Paeuw) (-1648).

Koornmarkt 41

Cornelis Maertens Hogenhouck (-1656) bought this property, the De Drie Hoefijzers brewery and house, in 1610 for 10,200 g. See Achter de Gevels, which lists him and his wife as residents and him and “juffr Hoogenhouck” as the owners. Historisch GIS has Margaretha and Jacob listed as owners. It went to the same owners as the others, first de Bock and Boudewijn van Leeuwen (separate sales letters), then the Keiser brothers (same sale letter) and then the three Overschie brothers (same sale letter). Is the bridge named after Boudewijn van Leeuwen?

Koornmarkt 41a

Cornelis Maertens Hogenhouck (-1656), brewer, bought this smaller property next to his brewery in 1652. He paid the 1585-1648 huizenprotocol OAD inv. 731 fol. 325V2 and the 1620-1632 verponding 449v4 and the 1632-1654 verponding 460r1. The back end of the prop is close enough to the back end of E0541 now Oude Delft 26 that the gardens may have been connected in the 1600's. This smaller one got merged into the larger E0538 at some point. All three have the same owners and sales letters after the Hogenhouck family sold it.

Koornmarkt 43A

When Adriaen Cornelisz van Rijck bought this property, named the Beugel (stirrup), and at some point changed its name to what it is called when he sold it in 1639, Keizerskroon (imperial crown). Van Rijck is listed as a malt maker with a corn merchant to the south and a brewer to the north. This is at odds with Achter the Gevels van Delft, which states that in 1610 Cornelis Hoogenhouck paid ƒ 10,200 for the building to the south, Kornmarkt 41, the Drie Hoefijzers brewery.

When van Rijck sold the Keizerskroon to Pieter Hogenhouck 19 years later, van Rijck is listed as a brandy distiller. The brewer to the north has been succeeded by his son, a doctor. While Cornelis Maertens Hogenhouck is listed as the southern neighbor, so is a bookbinder.

Pieter Abrahams Hogenhouck (-1679) bought it in 1639 for f 5000. He is listed as a merchant. When he sold it 12 years later to Nicolaes van der Mast, he is listed as a brewer. The same doctor and bookseller are his northern and...

Maerten Jans Hogenhouck (1550-1613) and his wife and then widow Catharina van der Dussen owned this property from 1578-1619 Charter 3.833. He paid the Haardstedengeld in 1600.

Next, Jacob Maertens Hogenhouck (-1638) bought it (not inherited?) for 6,222 g Charter 6434, “Duit op gulden 367/36 16 r1, 8/9”. Jacob lived there with his wife and then widow Catharina van der Made (-1651) from 1619 to 1652, when it was divided into three. He paid the Haardstedengeld in 1638.

Maerten Jans and Jacob Maertens are listed on the 1585-1648 huizenprotocol OAD inv. 731 fol. 322r2 sale letter 2W132v or 2u132v as well as the 1620 verponding folio 452r2. Jacob Maertens paid the 1632-1654 verponding folio 462r4, listed on three separate lines:
