About the van Foreest surname

In het boek “Van Ridders tot Regenten” van van Nierop (in de Hollands historische Reeks) wordt de teruggang van de adellijke families in Holland aangehaald.

In 1913 (de eerste editie van het Rode boekje) leefden er nog maar 4 families, die in rechte lijn afstamming van oude Hollandse adel konden aantonen:

  • Van den Boetzelaer,
  • van der Duyn (in 1947 uitgestorven),
  • van Foreest en
  • van Wassenaer.
