In 1573 the Siege of Alkmaar occured, during which the local administration got lost; we start somewhat later, in 1589 :


Gravestone of Frans Jansz. IJpelaan, merchant of horses (Witte Kerkje, Heiloo), 1680 :

Gravestone 1680

 For those foremost intested in unraveling the hystorical myths, see to start with :

  • The Egmond’ sources, after a century there is no ‘controvery’ left; the ‘bella diplomatica’ was already settled in 1940, and since it has been messed up;
  • The archeology, with the exemple of Limmen, on how real archeological findings are enclosed into an ‘esoteric’ framework;
  • The Runxputte, on how easy myths come about, when barkeepers and pastors decide to them;
  • Engelmundus of Velsen, one of the three apocryphal early-mediaeval saints of Kennemerland, the others are Willibrord of Heiloo and Adelbertus of Egmond;
  • The counts of Holland came in the Twelfth Century from Ghent; earlier, ‘Holland’ was an inhabitable marsh, where hardly anyone dwelled.
