VAN DAM, AMERSFOORT
Escutcheon with coat-of-arms of Willem van Dam (Amersfoort 1596 - Leiden 1673), mennonite and mayor of the city of Amersfoort, depicted with coats-of-arms of his grandparents Van Dam, Leemputte (Van Leemput), Verborch, De Berges ten Essendelle.
17th century. Oil on vellum, framed in gilt frame. Good condition, frame slighly damaged. (31x14cm). On the back in ink some notes on the genealogy of the Van Dam family. Willem van Dam (Amersfoort 1596 - Leiden 1673) was a mennonite who fled in 1618 with his brother Peter to Holstein where he founded Friedrichstadt on the Eider. He was the son of Peter van Dam and Digna van Leemputte. Peter van Dam was a son of Pieter van Dam and Marie Verborch (also written as Verburgh). Digna van Leemputte was a daughter of Jan Jacobsz. van Leemputte and Catharina de Berges ten Essendelle (famous as Trijn van Leemput in Utrecht for demolishing the castle Vredenburgh in 1577). In 1616 after the death of stadhouder Maurits the political situation changed and the Van Dam brothers returned. In 1619 Willem became mayor of Amersfoort. When this city was besieged by Ernesto and his cousin Raimondo Montecuccoli on the 13th of August 1619 Van Dam decided to surrender the city a day later. Van Dam was prosecuted and banished for life for this betrayal. The Staten of Utrecht changed that verdict in 1631. In 1635 he became mayor of Amersfoort again and would serve 11 times more in this capacity. In 1648 he became member of the Staten-Generaal of the Netherlands. In the disastrous year 1671 he fled with his second wife Johanna, daughter of Rombout Hogerbeets, to Leiden, where he would die a year later. His son Pieter van Dam became lawyer ("Advocaat" ) for the VOC and secretary to the "Heren XVII." Descendants of Van Dam married with Van Zegwaart, Graafland, Pit, Wttewael van Stoetwegen. H151

HOPTON, STRETTON GRANSOME, CANON FROME, BISHOPS FROME, GEORGE III
Grant of arms donated by Isaac Heard, Garter, principal King of Arms and George Harrison, Clarenceux, King of Arms of the south east and west parts of England, to the reverend William Hopton (?-1841), heretofore known as William Parsons of Stretton Gransome in the county of Hereford, now city of Hereford clerk in order to grant him the arms belonging to the name of Hopton he took earlier in the year by Royal decree.
British Empire, d.d. 1 August 1817. Vellum charter, good condition. 60x45 cm. Manuscript text and calligraphy, with 4 coloured coats of arms (three of the King and the officials and one of Hopton). Original 'signatures' (written names) and attached wax seals of both officials in decorated wooden (spane) casings. Encased in a made to fit oblong wooden case, with metal closing mechanism and clothed with red linen, decorated in gold with GR initials and crowns. This comes with an original letter from George W. Marshall, Rouge Croix, from the College of Arms dated 1900 and the Royal licence (signed by Queen Victoria) adressed to Lieutenant-Colonel Hopton for a change of name and arms from John Dutton Hunt to Hopton. This charter explains that William Hopton, heretofore William Parsons, only surviving son of John Parsons MP of Kemerton Court county Gloucester, deceased by Deborah his wife who was the daughter of Richard Hopton of Canon Frome in Hereford and the aunt of Richard Cope Hopton also deceased, took the name of Hopton by Royal decree of 11 March 1817 in order to inherit the Canon Frome estate. It also relates to the impressive family history dating several centuries back. The Hoptons had lived at Canon Frome for several generations, the succession often being through the female line. The Canon Frome estate was one of the largest in the county and he was a typical ‘squarson'. William (Parsons) Hopton, married twice (first to Mary Graves and second to Anna Poole), and his eldest grandson by the second marriage, Edward married his cousin, Clare Ellen Trafford. A soldier who served in the Crimea, Indian Mutiny, and the Kaffir and Zulu Wars, Edward became a General and was knighted in 1900. He, and his son Edward after him, were Trustees of the Michaelchurch Estate, and Eliza Rawson bought them a house (at Cagebrook in the parish of Eaton Bishop?). It seems that Canon Frome Court is now inhabitated by a rural living community of adults and children. Kemerton Court (apparently the ancestral home of the Parsons family) still exists and in the village of Kemerton there is a two storey tower still known as "Parsons folly". Unusual is the grant of a crest "out of a Ducal Coronet" "under the peculiar circumstances and the antiquity of the family" but "may not be made a precedent." H96

KRETZER, VON IMMERTREU, FERDINAND I
Patent of nobility donated by Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand I of Austria (1793-1875) to Joseph Kretzer von Immertreu for his 37 years galant services to the Empire as soldier and officer.
Austrian Empire, Vienna, d.d. 17 July 1836. Folio. Full red velvet, with yellow and black ribbons. Good condition, except for a stain on the silk end paper. 38x30 cm. 10 pages. Manuscript, calligraphic text on vellum, with printed decorative margins. With a very large hand painted coloured coat-of-arms. In the end the original signature of Ferdinand I and of Anton Friedrich Grafen Mittrowsky von Mittrowitz and Nemischl. Imperial wax seal with one large crack, in a disc shaped copper case, attached to the document by the gold cord of the binding. All encased in a metal box. This patent of nobility was donated by Ferdinand I of Austria in the early days of his reign (1835-1848). Ferdinand I is widely believed to have been a weak ruler and it is sometimes supposed that he lacked intellectual capacities. He also suffered from ill health. During the revolution of 1848, Ferdinand fled the country and abdicated in favour of his nephew Franz Joseph I. The patent explains at length the reasons why Kretzer recieved his nobility. He was born in Jägerndorf and joined the army in 1796. He became "Fahnrich" and subsequently "Unterlieutenant" in 1809, "Oberlieutenant"in 1813, "Kapitänlieutenant" in 1819 und "Hauptman" in 1831. He left the army in 1833 as a pensioner. He took part in the campaigns in 1799, 1805, 1809, 1813 and 1814 (Napolenonic Wars). Between 1803-1805 he was first teacher at the "Regiments-Knaben-Erziehungshause" (military school) and in 1809, 1813 and 1814 he was "Regiments Adjudant". He recieves the noble title and the right to call himself "Kretzer von Immertreu" which translates as "always loyal". His son also served in the military and became General-Major. H176

Menestrier, Francois
Abbrege' methodique des principes heraldiques, ou du veritable art du blason.
Lyon, Coral/du Perier, 1661. 11o. Full leather, worn top spine end. Paper somewhat browned. Exlibris Daniel de Bruin. (18)+III+(9) pages. Illustrated with a folding engraving of the coronation of Charles King of Naples and Sicily in 1165 by Cardinal Raoul de Chevriers and 10 full page engravings of coats-of-arms and woodcuts in the text. Some water staining in the first few pages. Claude-François Ménestrier (9 March 1631 - 11 January 1705) was a French heraldist, a member of the Society of Jesus [Jesuit], and attendant of the royal court. Ménestrier was born in Lyon. He produced numerous books on heraldry, and was one of the greatest authorities on heraldry of his age. Ménestrier was the professor of the colleges in Chambéry, Vienne, Grenoble, and Lyon. During 1669-70 he intended to travel to Germany and Italy, but only reached Paris and lived there to his death. He was the most widely known heraldist of his time, and from 1611 he was in close correspondence with Philipp Jakob Spener, the founder of the German scientific heraldry who refused the merely symbolic interpretation of arms. Ménestrier maintained that we can know the essence of heraldry only from the sources from the age of living heraldry, but he was also influenced by the heraldic view of his age. Thus, his researches were abortive. This attractive book is dedicated to Claude Joseph and Leonard Francois de Chevriers, two French noblemen. The 'epistre' contains a genealogy of their family. H146

ROOPE HARRIS, BRISTOL, GREENWAY, AGATHA CHRISTIE, LEAKE, TOWNLEY
Grant of arms donated by Stephen Martin Leake, Garter and Charles Townley, Clarenceux, Kings of Arms, to Roope Harris (1747-1811) of Bristol. Roope Harris became Roope Harris Roope afterwards.
United Kingdom, d.d. 10 september 1771. Vellum charter, 33x43 cm. Good condition. Copperplate hand engrossed, calligraphy, with large hand coloured coat-of-arms. Two wax seals of the mentioned kings of arms, in perfect condition, in decorated tin cases, attached to the document by silk ribbons. The charter comes encased in a contemporary oblong leather case, decorated with embossed, gilt patterns, lined with decorated coloured paper, broken at the hinges and worn. This charter confirms the coat-of-arms of Roope to Roope Harris of Bristol, who took the name and the coat-of-arms of Roope on 11 July 1771. Roope Harris (1747-1811), son of Ambrose Harris, son of Nicholas Harris of Dittisham, inherited the Roope estate at Greenway on the river Dart from Margaret Deeble (Margaret' Deebles Will 1777), so long as he agreed to take on the surname of Roope, hence the name 'Roope Harris Roope'. Roope Harris is the link between two branches of the Roope family, the Roope's of Little Dartmouth, Devon and the Roope's of Oporto, Dittisham, Kingswear etc. Greenway was bought by Agatha Christie in 1938 as a summer house for her and her husband Max Mallowan. The house is now owned by the National Trust. Greenway was previously owned by The Gilberts who finally sold Greenway around 1700 to Thomas Martyn, about whom nothing is known, but through him the property descended to the Roopes, a family of successful Dartmouth merchants. By 1780 Roope Harris Roope was the owner. He had apparently been born in Massachusetts (USA) and later travelled widely on business whilst also having 15 children, 6 of them born at Greenway. In 1791 Roope sold Greenway to Edward Elton, a Bristol merchant venturer and MP (his family also owned Clevedon Court). H168
