Jan Jacobs Hogenhouck

Other name: 
Jan Jacobs in ’t Ossenhooft
great great-grandfather Jan
Burial date: 
January 1, 1586

He was a cloth seller, member of the Veertigraad, and Delft's first mayor after Independence in 1573.

He got his name from his boyhood(?) home, the Ossenhooft on the Markt, west side of the Bijbelbrug.

When he bought the house on D0197 now Brabantse Turfmarkt 76-78, the largest property on the block, he used the name again and throughout his life as part of his own name.

Achter de Gevels says he owned other property, including on Hippolytusbuurt, but I can't find evidence in Historisch GIS Delft.
