Branch Details

Summary of the main branches in the Bosschaerts genealogy

The familyname Bosschaert is originally very strongly represented in the province of Antwerp; mainly in the cities of Antwerp and Lier and also in many cities in East and West-Flanders. In the course of the time one has established in the Zeeland, in the Betuwe (Gelderland) and in Amsterdam. Finally the family lives in many countries.

All our data is not (yet) linked. Hereby a survey of the main branches: I included the oldest generation with their family and a link to their genealogy to show their descandants.

High Summits, Deep valleys

Genealogy of Diericx Bosschaert, born ±1400, with 1.855 persons in 21 generations (1400-2004).

Wouter BOSSCHAERT, son of Dieric, was a butcher, born ±1425 and lived "bynnen Eekere in Vriesendonc". Wouter was married with Lysbeth VAN HAUBRAKEN. This is the first known generation of the noble branch of de Bosschaert (de Bouwel)'.

Around Antwerp

Genealogy of an ancestor Bosschaerts, born ±1470, with 13.047 persons in 18 generations (1470-2006).

The missing first name of this ancestor is presumable Gielis, son of Jan (born around 1430, who lived in Lier and Boechout). He was married with Liesbeth Van Vinckelaer.
Their known sons were: Adriaen, Sebastianus (lived in Nijlen and Lier) and Gielis Bosschaerts (lived in Lier and Boechout).
In this large branch you also find the genealogy of Bosschaerts-Persyn and a research of the PERSYN branch that migrated from Lokeren to San-Antonio (Texas, USA).

The islands Walcheren and Beveland

Genealogy of Pieter Bosschaert, born ±1530, with 1.675 persons in 16 generations (1530-2002).

Pieter BOSSCHAART was born in Goes in Zeeland around 1560, and died in Breda in 1595. He was married with Janneken CHRISTIAANS, native from Poperinge in West-Flanders.

This oldest generation was possible migrated to the Netherlands as a result of the Eighty Years' War. The islands Walcheren and Beveland were not fixed with the mainland. That’s why these islands were attractive for the expelled and suppressed people. It gave them a certain feeling of safety and security.

Research done by Wisse Bosschaart (born 1916) and Rogier Bosschaart.

Farmers in the Betuwe

Genealogy of Cornelis Bosschaert, born ±1570, with 12 generations (1580-2000).
Also a Genealogy of van Brummelen, before Bramhall and de Bromali di Masci, in 25 generations (1200-2003).

Cornelis was native from Woerden in the province of Utrecht.
His son Jan was married with Matje Jans van Nes, and remarried in 1659 with Lijsbeth Melissen.
In these branch we find residences like: Woerden, Amsterdam, Leiden and Utrecht. But the centre of gravity of these Bosschaert lineage is found in the Betuwe: the farmer population of Zoelmond and Beusichem. The origin of Cornelis is not known yet. He might have swerved to evade the war violence of the Eighty Years' War.

Genealogy of Joannes Bosschaert, born ±1600, with 380 persons in 15 generations (1600-1998).

Joannes was married in 1627 with Catharina CHRISTIAENSEN or BASTIAENSEN.
Joannes might be a son of Andries Bosschaert and Catharina Basseliers. Further investigation might confirm this lineage.
Their children: Joannes Baptist (1628) was a famous painter (married with Barbara Bisschop and remarried with Joanna De Bie), Elisabeth (1630), Cornelius (1631) was married with Maria Raevens, Catharina (1634), Quirinius (1636) and Joannes (1640).
Jan Bosschaert, the all-round-artist, is part of this genealogy.

Franciscus (or sometimes Augustinus) lived in Beveren and Doel, and was married in 1662 with Elisabeth Janssens.

Further ancestors might probably be found in East- or West Flanders in stead of in Antwerp.

The painter Thomas Willebrordus Bosschaert (1613-1654) is part of this genealogy. He belonged to a later generation than P.P. Rubens, and had another style. He was most attracted with the elegant figurative language as it can be found on the paintings of Antoon Van Dyck. But Thomas Willebrordus became an independent creative painter, and was able to develop the base of Van Dijck in other ways.

In this genealogy we marked all the Ambrosius and his descendants with a Roman number (exclusive for this genealogy). In reality the father and son are indicate as 'de Oude' (the Old) and 'de Jonge' (the Young), but it is very confusingly when de Jonge (the Young) becomes the oldest of the family.
