Today I thought it would be interesting to post our family shield…it can only be used by male descendants of my grandfather’s grandfather, J.T. Hendrikse, from IJzendijke.


It’s a very catholic design, but that’s what history gets you :-). It’s based on the colors of Zeeland, blue for the sea and silver for the crests on the waves. It’s displaying the front of the Campveerse tower in Veere where our ancestor Gilles Hendrikse lived.
