      >>Dianne,
      >>
      >>Nobility and wealthy farmers did use a surname and often towns folk too.
      >With
      >>each century, up to 1811, more and more people used surnames. Most common
      >>people didn't have surnames. Traditionally Frisians have sued a patronymic
      >>names like, Tjerk Jans (Jan'son'). Their first name usually came from
      their
      >>mother's father. There is more to the tradition than what I explained
      here.
      >>Even when families did use a formal surname, they contiued to use this
      >>tradition. For example, my grandfather was Jacob Jans de Hoog, his father
      >was
      >>Jan Tjerks de Hoog, and his mother's father was Jacob Hoeksma.
      >>
      >>In my experience (I may be wrong) a larger number of towns people used
      >Dutch
      >>surnames prior to 1811. Can anyone comment?
      >>
      >>Frisian names ending with -sma, -ma, -inga, -inia (really an -inga), -da
      >are
      >>patronymic. Although there are exceptions, non-patronymic -sma and -ma
      >names
      >>likes my gr-grandmother's maiden name Hoeksma. Names ending with -stra,
      are
      >>origin names (I think -na is an origin ending too). If you would like,
      send
      >>me a list of your Frisian surnames and I can probably tell what most of
