About Peter van Panhuys

Peter Panhuys was a merchant, burgher of Antwerp, steward and treasurer of Antwerp. He was born in 1529 in Walhorn, Limburg, and province of Liège. On 13 June 1561 he married Margrijete Bartholomeus von Eyckelenburgh, called Hooftman. The family had 13 children. Margarijete was a daughter of a noble Austrian. Her father was a merchant in Antwerp, but also mayor of Trier, where she herself was born in 1545. The family was very wealthy and belonged to the regent families of Antwerp, until the siege of Antwerp in 1585. In 1576 , Antwerp joined the pacification of Ghent and the Union of Utrecht. This was the largest Dutch city, at that time 100,000 inhabitants, the capital of the Dutch revolt. The period to 1585 is known as the Antwerp Republic, where Catholicism was officially forbidden. Sent by the Pope, the Spaniards reconquered all Flemish cities and stood on 3 July 1584 for the port of Antwerp. They put in the Scheldt a 730 meter long bridge of ships, so that the city would be starved. City surrendered to the Spanish military leader Alexander Farnese, Duke of Parma. The opponents of the Spanish King had the time to leave the city of Antwerp. Many Protestant merchants and intellectuals left for Amsterdam, but also in Germany and England. Among them, Peter Panhuys, spouse and 13 children. Peter and Margarijete passed away in Amsterdam while family dispersed in Holland and Germany. Today, most of the Panhuys or van Panhuys are Dutch. http://www.panhuys.com/history/
