      The Buis-family being of Groninger origin, you might have more result by putting this specific question to the Groningen-group.

      The different patronym may also be a mistake made by the person who wrote the 'real' certificate or by the person who made the data available on GenLias.
      As my grandfather used to say:"You shouldn't believe something just because it's written down or printed!" :-)

      Met vriendelijke groet,

      Beste Group,

      Is any aware of an patronymic naming case in which one child does not
      carry the father's name but some other? What I am saying is that I
      have an ancestor, who by all records is a son of Derk Jans Buis from
      Groningen and all of the children are properly named according to the
      strick rules of the patronymic system and have "middle" names of
      DERKS but for my one ancestor Klaas GEERTS Buis. Is there some rule
      for the deviation here or is it possible he was actually a son of a
      brother of Derk Jans Buis?
