The first Zee born in Holland

When Bruin Bruinszoon Zee was born in Medemblik in March 1735, he became the first Zee born in Holland; his mother Anna and father Bruno were German, and moved to this little harbour town in the north of Holland around 1733. All of our family members can trace their line back to Bruin Bruinszoon Zee. For most of us today, this is our 3rd, or 4th-great-grandfather.

A tough start in life

Bruin grew up in Medemblik in challenging circumstances. His mother Anna died when he was 15, and his father Bruno followed shortly after when he had just turned 18. That year, 1753, was particularly tough: a week after his father died, he had to watch helplessly as his three sisters were placed in an orphanage: one of them would not leave alive. There was nothing left to him in a will, so he had to make his own luck in life.

Things change: he meets Jannetje

A girl from Lutjebroek would provide that good fortune.

Jannetje Tromp was four years younger than Bruin, from a small but well known family in Grootebroek, about 15km from Medemblik. Her father Frederik Pieters Tromp was not only the head of the town council, but an established investor, landowner, and the headmaster of the school in Lutjebroek. However, he wasn’t well.

Frederik Tromp’s death announced in the “Mathematische liefhebberye, met het nieuws der Fransche en Dutsche scholen in Nederland, Volume 8” [>]

Frederik Tromp died on May 13, 1760, after a long illness, six months before Jannetje and Bruin were married in Lutjebroek that December.

Jannetje was left a large sum of money in his will – several thousand guilders, and some of her father’s land. And so, the young couple had options.

The Summer of 1763

April 2nd, 1763. They’ve been living in Lutjebroek now for over 2 years, and have a young daughter – Anna, named after her grandmother.

This Saturday morning, Bruin is reading the newspaper. The headline story has been the same for weeks: more details of the Treaty of Paris, ending the Seven Years’ War, and half of the paper is given over to the minute details of the agreement. Turning to the advertisements, he spots something that catches his interest.

On the following Monday, April 4th, there’s going to be an auction in the Inn at Zuidscharwoude at 1pm, for a Ship building business. Worth a look! He discusses it with Jannetje: they have the money to buy it, isn’t it worth a shot? And so, on Monday, Bruin makes the trip to De Roode Leeuw in Zuid Scharwoude.

The trip turns out to be worthwhile. A sale is agreed quickly, and they don’t waste any time moving on it. On May 19th, Jannetje gets her blessing from the church to move parishes, and on May 28th, 1763, Bruin becomes the new owner of the Pannekeet, a historic house and shipyard in the Heerhugowaard. The price? A steal, at 150 guilders.

Purchase agreement for Pannekeet Shipyard, bought by Bruin Zee on May 28th, 1763

Following in his fathers maritime footsteps, Bruin Zee is now officially an entrepreneur and shipbuilder. A new chapter in their lives awaits.


Bruin and Jannetjes new house at Pannekeet was already a very historic building when they bought it, dating back to the early 1600’s. It can be seen drawn on this map of the area from 1625.

“De Groote Zuyder Vaart”, map by Baert Claesz in 1625.
The house at Pannekeet on the same map, to the right of the windmill.

Right across from the Pannekeet shipyard was the Staert windmill (also known as Molen ‘G’ in Zuid Scharwoude), built in 1575. This was a peculiar type of windmill known as a Wipmolen, likely the largest of its type in North Holland, and survived until 1934 when a fire destroyed it. This windmill would have been Bruin Zee’s view to the west from Pannekeet.

A family of Schoolteachers

Bruin Bruinzoon Zee had a great fondness for education, the inspiration for which came from his wife’s father Frederik Tromp. Three of his children became schoolteachers: the first was Bruin, followed by Frederik and then Pieter.

Frederik Zee: The fifth Frederik

This Frederik Zee was definitely a character. Unlikely as it sounds, he was the fifth Frederik to be born to his parents, Bruin & Jannetje. Put another way, he was one of five brothers all named Frederik. The Frederiks of 1763, 1764, 1766, and 1768 did not survive beyond a year old. But he did.

His father Bruin was very keen for all his children to be very well educated – and just like two of his other brothers than made it to adulthood, he became a teacher. His school was in Spanbroek.

Frederik the fifth was fond of a drink. This much is clear from a school inspection in 1817:

The following year, he got a better review:

Smoked Ribs and Birdcages: The sale of Frederiks things, 1825.

When Frederik died, unexpectedly, in 1825, his wife Lijsje sought help to clear out the house, and his nephew Louwris Zee, and his sisters husband Jacob Gorter, took it upon themselves to organize a big garage sale, with sale by auction, in April that year. The auction was well attended – in excess of 100 people, including family, friends, and curious bargain seekers turned up to rummage through his estate.

The records of who bought what, and who showed up, give us a curiously detailed snapshot of life in Spanbroek and West Friesland in 1825, and more specifically, exactly what was in Frederik Zee’s house.

First out of the traps was Piet Wever, who bid 10 cents for a reading desk, getting the first bargain of the day, probably because of its cumbersome shape and size. Once things started selling, and notwithstanding that he was organizing the thing, Jacob Gorter didn’t waste any time, buying an egg-rack for 50 cents. Louwris Zee wasn’t to be outdone … he quickly got involved too. Item number 15 was …. a piece of bacon. That took the highest price of the day so far, at 2 guilders 10 cents. A smoked rib was the next item, going for 45 cents to Aris de Jong from Spanbroek.

Jan Zee from Benningbroek, his brother, was also at the auction, patiently biding his time before stepping out of the shadows to snatch up two buckets, for 2 guilders 10c. Following this, a series of copper kettles, pans, and other kitchenware went to various bidders.

Auction record, from Notaris Pieter Levert [> Acten 1824-5, p293]

After a series of small lots – coffee pots, baskets, tin cans, candle holders – the star of the show was brought in: Frederik Zee’s horse and cart. The horse went to Dirk Koolhaas for 45 guilders, and the cart must have been a spectacular one, for it raised 122 guilders. The horse went out, the sheep came in (with two lambs), and these too were sold for good money.

Back to the house contents – everything conceivable was now for sale: fire stokers, soup bowls, bird cages, plates (including Delft Blue), and about 20 paintings. Jan Zee bought two of them, likely not Rembrandt’s, as he got them for 35 cents. But Frederik certainly had a good collection of them. The auction ended with a total value of 480 guilders and 85 cents.

Pieter Zee: Teacher Three

The third teacher was Pieter Zee, in the Purmer.

Three Brecht/Bregje's - clearing up confusion
Bregje Jans Ham (1709-1749) was married to Frederik Tromp. She was the daughter of Jan Pieters Ham and Trijn Gerrits Dorst, and the mother of Jannetje Tromp who married Bruin Zee, and Aaltje and Brechtje Tromp. She was earlier married to Dirk Adriaans Komen. [Source: WFA, various Notarial documents 1700-1750 >]

Brecht Pieters (1687-1763), was married to Pieter Frederiks Tromp in 1699, and these were the parents of Frederik P. Tromp. Daughter of Frederik ... The Pieters may refer to Pieter. Suspicion that he married his cousin, or ... even closer relation? (aka Bregje Freeks). Her parents remain unclear.

Brecht Jans Fokels (1644-), was married to Frederik Jacobs Tromp (b.1652?). These are the parents of Pieter Frederiks Tromp.

Trijn Gerrits Dorst
Great tabloid stories about her father Gerrit Dorst (Grotedorst). Add those in.

Finding Brecht Pieters
Boedelscheiding 1705 [>] Pieter Frederiks Tromp, neef van Digna Dirks Pilleman. Neef = Een zoon respectievelijk dochter van iemands oom/tante. Digna 1st wife of Wijbrand Pieters (now remarried), visser, Broekerhaven. Digna is also granddaughter of Jan Teunisz Fokels/Roker x Aaf Gerrits. Also listed Pieter Teunisz, Frederik Pieters as Belendende (neighbours), and Broer Pieters (witness).

Broer Pieters x Dieuwertje Kornelis [>]

Three Bregje Pieters in Lutjebroek 1700-1760. One is our Bregje. There is also a Bregje Pieters, died 1757, body came from Enkhuizen, and a young Bregje Pieters Kuiper mentioned in a will of 1723 as minderjarige nagelaten.
16-May-1718 Lutjebroek, Impost op begraven Luijtjen Pietersz, aangever Bregje Pieters, nihil. Likely brother. There were no other known Bregje Pieters in Lutjebroek at this time, but it could be the 1757 Bregje. 

Luitjen Pieters married Trijn Cornelis Nov 23, 1700 Westwoud.
