If he signed the Magna Carta there might be hope for Holland as well, to be freed from their slaverey. What do you mean by "signing?" Did he compose the Magna Carta? Or just put his autograph under it with a bunch of others who agreed? [/quote] Yes I know it is a Dutch name, my father immigrated from Holland after the war. The descendants moved to the northern area of Holland where my relatives hail from. As far as I know he helped draft the Magna Carta and was one of the signees. [/quote]
Well it turns out that a trip down memory lane in the old family bible reveals that not only am I directly related to a Knight Templar, but he signed the original Magna Carta and was given a Knights burial in London where you can still view his tomb. See pic below.
How cool a discovery is that!
