About Evert du Marchie van Voorthuijsen

For a picture and further biographical information see: http://www.parlement.com/9291000/biof/00878

Well known Dutch Jurist; Member of the Staten Generaal (the Dutch Parliament) as a Deputy (in the 2nd Chamber) then as a Senator (in the 1st Chamber)

He had the family nickname Heer der Heerlijkheden (Lord of Lordships) because of his numerous domains, which included for some time the ancient domain of Alt Voorthuysen near Elten in Germany--no longer in the family today. He was also Heer van Maarssen, Ter Meer, Bergesteyn, Poelgeest, Koudekerk, Zwammerdam, Schagen en Den Engh

For the continuation of this extended branch of the family, known from this generation on as Du Marchie van Voorthuijsen, please refer to:

To read more about the ancient domain of Alt Voorthuijsen, scroll down about one fourth of the way in: http://forthuyse.googlepages.com/teachersirememberpartthree from which I will quote:

"Sinds de aanleg van de autobaan is de oude Heerlijkheid Voorthuijsen van Stokkum afgesneden en alleen nog via omwegen bereikbaar. Maar nog tot na de Tweede Wereldoorlog vormde onze Voorthuizerweg de lijnrechte verbinding met het kasteeltje en de heerboerderij. De bewoners van Voorthuijsen hadden omgekeerd altijd nauwe betrekkingen met ons dorp. Zo werkten heel wat Stokkumers er als personeel in de huishouding, als koetsiers of op de boerderij. Ook werd de melk van het grote melkveebedrijf tot de komst van de autosnelweg via Stokkum geleverd aan de zuivelfabriek in Zeddam. Voorthuijsen is een oeroude woonplek, oorspronkelijk horend bij Stokkum.


Translation: Since the construction of the Autobahn the old Domain of Voorthuijsen has been cut off from Stokkum and can only be reached in a roundabout manner. But till after WWII the Voorthuizer Way formed a direct connection to the small castle and the manorial farm. In return, the occupants of Voorthuijsen always did have close ties to our village. Quite a few Stokkumers worked there as personel in the household, as coachmen, or on the farm. Until the arrival of the Autabahn the milk from the large dairy enterprise also got delivered through Stokkum to the dairy processing plant in Zeddam. Voorthuijsen is a very ancient habitation, belonging originally to Stokkum.


Note: Stokkum is still on the Dutch side of the border--but lost Elten and Voorthuijsen to the German side. The autobahn seems to have 'Westbanked' the area of Elten apart from Stokkum, the way the Apartheid Wall is doing to many ancient Palestinian areas in the Westbank today--cutting formerly integrated localities off from each other."
