Heemskaerk Early Origins



The surname Heemskaerk was first found in Holland, where Heemskerk is a municipality and a town in the province of North Holland which dates back to at least the year 1063, when the town was known as Hemezen Kyrica, Latinized Frisian meaning Church of Hemezen. The place holds many historical monuments, among them the Huldtoneel, a man-made hill located near the current Rijksstraatweg, where once the Counts of Holland where inaugurated. Two castles, Castle Oud Haerlem and Castle Heemskerk were built in the twelfth and thirteenth century respectively to protect the County of Holland against the West Frisians. Both castles survive today. Castle Heemskerk, renamed Castle Marquette in 1610 is now owned by a Spanish hoteleliers.
