Cornelis Teunisz bought a windmill on the VOLGERWEG in the Beemster a former inland lake which was diked and emptied hence requiring a series of windmills to keep pumping water out of the newly created farmlands thereby keeping it dry and workable. The trade name of Molenaer ( which was the spelling of the name in those days, was chosen by Ariaen/Adriaen as the family name. The “ Beemster “ is in the province of North Holland some 15 km from Amsterdam.
Prior to 1640 research has shown that Cornelis Teunisz originated from the province of Friesland. All records in those days were stored in churches and the 2 most likely churches were both destroyed by fire and all information was lost. Also in that period people did not have surnames as we know them today but rather they used the father’s Christian name and the letter “z” denoting the Dutch word zoon, meaning son or son of; or the letter “d” denoting the Dutch word dochter meaning daughter.
