Re: Machet in Bolsward
- Tony, Ynske,
Just as I promised last week I have publised my data on the family (de)
Machet or originally Mazetti. Ynske gave me some of these data.
Caesar Claudius Mazetti came to Bolsward between 1560 and 1570 and he
started the City Bank of Lone. He was a Noble man who had a castle in
Frinco (Italy) . Because he came to a protestant(the raise against the
catholic church was just a few years before) his properties were
confiscated by his family.
Frinco is a small town in the triangle Milan, Genua and Torino. Also
known as Lombardije. Earning money with lones was social not accepted
(and probably prohibited for dutch) foreners did this job.
The word "lommerd" originates from this.
Via this link you will come to Jelte Heerckes and his two wives Rigtje
