About Gabbe Holdinga

Holdinga State

Holdinga State stood at the Humaldawei No. 41 under Ee, Dongeradeel.

 Old Holdingha  
arise   Regarding the origin of the stins / state is unknown.  
History   Probably Hold Ingen (1511) or Old Holdingha (1640) to Ee an older house Holdinga than Holdinga to Anjum.  (* 1) Gabbe Holdinga, who was married Tiemck Meckema, from the oldest family Meckema from Kollum, was first mentioned in 1444.  He then closed with another hoofdelingen an agreement with the city of Groningen.  In 1449 was Gabbe grietman in Dongeradeel.  Whether he lived or Ee Anjum is unknown.  (* 2) The only son of Gabbe and Tiemck, Botto, inherited in 1472 the main Holdinga goods.  In 1474 Botto was with Gabbe Jaerla and young Jucke Wibalda of Metslawier Dokkum involved in the murder of Ede Hessels of Boazum who was ingetrouwd on Tjaerda in Rinsumageest.  In 1491 he opposed with Feye Hesselsz (Remmersma), married to Bottes cousin Tieth Meckema against the authority of the city government to Dokkumer Minne Jaerla to negotiate with Groningen. 
In 1511 was Old Holdinga owned Bottes son Wilcke Holdinga.  It was already a tenant farm.  Both Holdinga Houses to Ee and Anjum came from Wilcke his son Botto of Holdinga.  Holdinga state to Anjum Botto received at his marriage with Hack Feyes Eysinga in 1535 with.  He left a Latin chronicle of the history of Friesland.  In it he paid attention to, among other things, the age of his own family.  He informed thereby that the Holdinga along with the Camminghas and Tjaerda's had the right to the swan hunting in Oostergo.  Also in 1640, the owner was the same as that of Holdinga in Anjum, viz. Johan Onuphrius rectangular Schwartzenberg and Hohenlansberg.  It was in 1643 by Doedt of Holdinga, married to Georg Wolfgang rectangular Schwartzenberg and Hohenlansberg, bequeathed to her son Wilcke Holdinga rectangular Schwartzenberg and Hohenlansberg who inherited in 1641 also Holdinga House Leeuwarden. 
The family Thoe Schwartzenberg has Old Holdinga at any time sold between 1641 and 1698, because in that last year's 2/3 owned by Jan Joosten which then full voting rights because he trustee is about Jan Jansen for the remaining 1 / 3 part owner.  Jan Joosten was civil lieutenant to Dokkum and in 1692 married Ansckjen Pijters from Ee.  Almost certainly it is good then comes from the family of Ansckjen. 
On Sunday, May 29, 1718 married their daughter Jantje Jans Wiersma Michiel Freerx Minnema, "vroedsman the City Dockum".  Michael is already listed as an owner in the stemkohier of 1718, so there may be assumed that Jan Joosten and his wife are now deceased.  In 1718, the farm as well as 10 years earlier still leased to the widow of Jacob Mackes, but in 1728 Michael himself is listed as a user.  Urban vroedsman seems to have become a farmer.  Tiena years later the state in the name of the then 13-year Wikjen Minnema, daughter of Michael and his third wife Betske Ates.  Wikjen in 1746 married the former India Goer Dr. Hendricus Canter Visscher from Dokkum, but died already two years later.  It's good in 1648, owned by captain Jan de With whom Wikje married in 1750 and therefore the woman's house was on Stania State to Oenkerk.  More than thirty years remain the property of Jan de With, because still in 1778 "Old Zeekapt. Jan de With" as an owner listed in the stemkohier.  is in 1788 and 1798 "Sjoerd Rijperda" in the assessment lists acknowledgment.  Dr. Sjoerd Ripperda was in 1788 already widower of Rebecca de With in 1787 at the age of 35 deceased daughter of Jan and Wikje.  He leased the property to Peter Martens, who also lived there 10 years earlier under his father.  Sjoerd died in 1813 in Nijmegen, but has already sold before his death the sate.  This is evident from the name of the owner in 1818: Dirk Jacobs Holdinga.  He has taken this family name in 1812 to the state and must previously have already become owner.  Dirk Jacobs Holdinga is still listed as owner in 1838.  Both marriages Dirk remained childless and in 1862 we find Riemke Jacobs Heeringa, widow of Ids Lieuwes Sijtsma as owner.  Ten years later, their daughter Dieuwke owner Idzes Sijtsma, married to Klaas Wiersma Jelles.  Klaas died on June 25, 1886 and from then until his death in 1898, is son Jelle Wiersma Klazes at the helm.  After that lives here Siebren Meinderts Douma, presumably as a tenant.  Later attends son John Sijbrens Douma on the farm, while owned by mr. Eelke Meindersma, subgriffier of the District Court of Zutphen, Abe Meindersma that Paris, Ned.  India and The Hague lived and Elisabeth Meindersma, each for 1/3.  They shall be heirs of the widow of Jelle Wiersma Klazes Elisabeth Wepkes Botma whose mother was Sytske Meinderts Meindersma. 
Originally a farm of the stelp type.  In 1872 showed Klaas Wiersma Jelles a Groninger Dwarshuis for places.  According to the foundation stone laid "Jelle K. Wiersma, aged 13 years and Riemke K. Wiersma age 11 years," the foundation stone of the building on 1 July 1772. After 1972 heard no country more and it was converted into a farmhouse.  In 1980, however, this is excluding the stookhut and part of the house destroyed by fire.  The heavily damaged living area was later reduced as much as possible to its original state. 
That indeed at Old Holdingha is a old stins, as suggested by the name, is evident from the stins whose in 1718 indicated immediately south of the sate.  On the cadastral map of 1832 whose land is depicted as an orchard surrounded by a wide moat. 
(* 1) For the argument to * Holdinga to Anjum.  In the 16th century, seems at least to have existed a tradition a source of Ee. 
(* 2) Tiemck, his widow, testing led to 1472 FT, no. 29. She speaks about Aalsum, Anjum and Kollum.
