The Trip Family Tree
The Trip Family

This family tree shows the direct line of Trips from Gerrit Jansz, who lived in a house in Zaltbommel named "the Trip" (or "de Trip" in Dutch), through my grandmother's father (Hendrik Jan Trip), to the present. Although I have some information about recent generations, I have omitted these details to protect their privacy.

On the left is the family coat of arms, as shown in the Nederland's Patriciaat, 1963. On the right is a family tile, made some time after World War II.

Coat of Arms: In red three golden "trippen" (wooden shoes).
Helmet sign: an advancing deer in natural color.
Color: gold and red.

 

The "trippen" in the coat of arms are wooden-soled shoes to wear over and protect the "indoor" shoe.

It seems safe to say that the ancestors of the first Trips were shoemakers, of a specialized variety. The book on the Trip family in the 17th century mentions that the name Tripmeker was in use in Zaltbommel in 1369. This seems like a possible source for the Trip name, given the coat of arms.


Gerrit Jansz
(1460?-1530?)

Gerrit Jansz, also named Gerrit in the Trip, lived in Zaltbommel in 1495; still alive in 1530.

    In 1660 they started building the Trippenhuis and in 1662 Hendrick and his wife Johanna de Geer and Louys and his wife Emerentia Hoefslager moved there. Their families died out in 1796.

Scato Trip died in Lisse in 1721.

I believe that the owner of the portraits of Elias and Adrianus Trip, the Laman Trip family, are descended from Scato's son Hendrik Jan (> Scato Trip 1742-1822 > Herman Trip 1776-1846 > Willem Laman Trip 1809-1873 > Herman Laman Trip 1840-1876). The Laman name appears to come from Herman's wife's mother, and was passed down to all Herman's children.

Notes

I have found one source that lists possible earlier ancestors:

  • GERRIT BENNINGH GERRITSZN, born ca 1370. Married BAERT VERBURGH.
  • GERRIT BENNINGH GERRITSZN, born ca 1400. Married KATRIJN PAULUSDGT VAN NECKEREN.
  • JAN BENNINGH GERRITSZN, born ca 1430, Schepen van Amsterdam in 1471. Married JACOBSDGT.

I have no evidence that these are actually relatives. But given these dates (there's an amazing tendency for the generations to be 30-35 years apart), we'd expect the next generation to be Gerrit Janszn in 1460, which matches the above. These were found in a kwartierstaadt that included the oldest Trips in this tree. A kwartierstaadt is a format of genealogy in which you can find the father of any individual by taking that person's number and doubling it. These people were not under the correct numbers to be Trip ancestors. However, taking the number of Jan Benningh Gerritszn and dividing by two should point at his son or daughter. This didn't point at a valid person in the tree either, so I consider it at least a possibility still. The person who posted this kwartierstaat said that it was compiled by his grandfather long ago, so he had no further information to add.
