There is a lot of documentry information about the family in Eysden, nr

Seen this?

Today I came across the name Hartog JACOB on Genlias, the wonderful Dutch
website where the various archives are trying to put out details of all their
holdings back to the 1700's ( .
I can't be sure this is the right man - it is an entry concerning the death of
his wife Hester SCHAAP who died aged 69 on August 09th, 1812. her parents were
Levy Moses SCHAAP
Mozes, not Moses

Its a stupid question I know, but would the name Hartog Jacob be an uncommon one
or not at that time?!!!!
Before the Napoleontic occupation 1794-1812, many [and most Jews] had no family
name. French law made them all citizens and ordered them to choose a family name.

Hartog [ben] JACOB should have been common, while his brothers name could have
Calman [ben] JACOB Medex.
