About the Fernhout surname

In the book by joh Klos :"Genealogie van Jan Jurgen Fernhout" I find the history of the one branch of the Fernhout family. It starts with Jan Jurriens Varrenhoud. b. ca 1690 zn van Jurrien Varrenhoud tr. op 12-10-1709 met Jentien Meynen dr. van Meyne Meynen vevener te Pesserveld. I also find among others the name of Meijne Jans Varnholt 1713 Edgar Richard Joh. Fernhout 1912 1974 and others. My relation to the Fernhouts is I was married to Jan Jacob Fernhout, son of Jacob Fernhout son of Jan Fernhout. This is very confusing because Jacob and Jan Fernhout occurred many times in the book. Later more about the Fernhout family. As you wil realise this is a task that will take many many hours. Corrie Fernhout
