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 (http://www.genlias.nl) .
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
been:
Calman [ben] JACOB Medex.
