Welcome on my website
After 1699 the surename Suyderhoeff disapeared and we only see the familyname written with CK instead of the F or the double FF. From 1811 we only see the name Zuiderhoek as we write now, all the other spellings have desappeared.

Old Beijerland it was Jan Suijderhouck the founder and Arend
Suijderhouck or Suijderhoeck, in Pijnacker the founder of the family.
In the North of the Netherlands living Family Zuiderhoek, has
no commitment with our family. They have their origin in the North of
Germany a small hamlet called "Vellage", The
Zuiderhoek family, living in Grand Rapids Michigan, are decendants of the
Zuiderhoeks-familie of the North of The Netherlands.
Jan Suijderhoeff van Haerlem, married Diewertje Hasselaer, called himself "van Haerlem" and entering the job as major of Schiedam. (A small village in the near of Rotterdam). Some children from him, took the name “van Haerlem: the name of the other children took the name “ van Hasselaer". A cousin of Jan van Haerlem, “Jan Suijderhoeff van Haarlem” was married to Agneta Lette, where we watched on an excerpt from the civil status of the name Suijderhoeff van Haarlem " then ended the name on CK. He would later used the familyname Suijderhoeck.
search in those old time requires good effort, because of the often unusual
name adoption. The family Suijderhouck from Oud Beijerland would later lived
in Pijnacker too. Also be the names Suijderhoeck, Suijderwijk and
Suijderkerck often confused. I have taken Pijnacker as a basis of the family
.The first ancestor from Pijnacker is Arend Zijbrandtszn Suijderhoeck, born
around 1550. On the page "Genealogy"
you find the whole familytree.
