About Pieter Reinders Roersma

Pieter Reinders Roersma was the first Roersma. His father's name was Reinder pieters. Pieters is taken from his fahter, who was Pieter. They took their fahter's name and added an "s" to the end. In 1760, the use of last names was started in the Netherlands. (The same situation occurred with the Fokkemas. Tjeerd Fokkema was the first Fokkema. His father was Fokke Tjeerds.) "Roersma" means - "one who rows boat.".
