I found this old message on the board. I have a Johannes Berghoffer (Berghofer) mentioned in the web-site of "niet-joodse Spier families". This Johannes married a Grietje de Vette in AMsterdam and had a daugther, Maria Elizabeth, as well as two sons, Johannes and Frans Jacob. Could you confirm whether this is the same Johannes Berghofer from Horinghausen mentioned in your message? If so, is there anything known about his ancestry?

Hello Eric, It is the same one. Grietje de Vette was buried 16 April 1789 at the Zuiderkerkhof. They lived that time at the Spiechelgracht. Johannes married again with Anna Magdalena Konink, who came from Bremen. The banns are dated 23 October 1789. Johannes place of origin is recorded here as Haringhuisen in Hessen. That´s all I have. I have no further ancestry of him. The ending "hoffer" is a local German variant of Berghoff, a "Hoffname". Kind regards, Marnix Berkhoff.
