About Gerrolt Taeckes van Cammingha

Camminghaburg at Leeuwarden

 The Camminghaburg was about northeast of Leeuwarden.

The lock is mentioned for the first time in the 14th century. History In the year 1200 the Cammingha's already mentioned and they were the most powerful family of Leeuwarden. Still remember many street and ward names to them. The Camminghaburg was just west of the present Cambuurplein. The Castle experienced a double omgrachting and reinforced for port and was surrounded by other defensive works.

Early 14th century the lock inhabited by Regnerus Cammingha and in 1398 by Gerrit Cammingha. Gerrit was ally of Albrecht of Bavaria, count of Holland. By his Alliance he had his Salazar by a Dutch occupation, making him the anger of the people on his neck. The castle was besieged and after the capture was the occupation killed and partly partly to flee.
Around 1500 polite Friesland troubled time and the castle was destroyed, after which it was rebuilt by Prince ca 1510 Cammingha and his wife Kathleen of Madi. With the death of Nguyen Cammingha in 1589 the family in the male line dies out. His daughter Edwert inhabits from 1589 the lock with her husband Fred Juckema.
After to have been in possession of the family Juckema inherited the castle through inheritance, into the hands of the Burmania's and later the family Rabbit on to Epemastate Ysbrechtum.
By the end of the 18th century the Castle no longer privately inhabited, but has the only time served as a prison. In 1785 the Executive Council gives command to the Camminghaburg outside Leeuwarden to powder magazine remodel: it was used as ammunition or arsenal. Finally, the lock was in 1810 with chapel and outbuildings demolished.
Of the Camminghaburg are several pictures have been preserved. The oldest picture of this lock dates from 1552. It is a portrait of the then occupant Cammingha, Rienk van that was painted by Adriaen Valle. To this is the castle in a romantic landscape. the castle is surrounded by a moat on a site, which could be achieved through a large Gatehouse with a saddle roof between spout facades.
The castle itself consisted of two wings, which late-medieval forms, and in the Middle a kind of Tower with gable roof, that the remainder of a possible Salazar may have been.
One wing had two storeys on the corner a small guerite Tower, while the other had only one storey. This second wing was not much lower than the other wing, because here a room with large Windows. Perpendicular to the second wing stood a los barn-like element with large gable roof between Gables and a stepped gable above one of the large doors.
There is also an image geblevn, which kept the situation in 1782. This we see that the building has received a traptop and down a corridor on columns with arches with was. The barn cross on the building is now gone.
