Rob Koning's Genealogical Homepage

Specialiced on Groningen and East-Frisia



Welcome at Rob Koning's Genealogical Homepage. In this fashion I want to try to make the data I've collected over the years, easier accessable for the people which are interested in them. Most data collected covers the provinces of Groningen, Friesland en Ost-Friesland (Germany), because my family has it's roots there. My familyname is Koning (Connincks, Kuininckx, Cunnink, Konings, Coninckx, Koenink, etc., etc.). If you can add something and/or have improvements, I would like to hear of them by E-mail E-mail adress. This data will be checked, if necessary, and added to the collected data. That's why I would like to have the sources included, to recall the finds (With books please also include name book, writer, publisher, date and ISBN number if these have been supplied).
On this page will also be a few shortcuts to homepagina's for interesting information for the genealogists among us.

The genealogy of the Koning family

do press ^ this ^ link to check the data out

Familyhistory of the Koning family from Groningen from about 1650 until now. The roots of the family are probably in North-Germany. It is known that the family had lived between 1600 and 1700 in Emden and Groningen. It is probably because of war, fighting in the region and their religion, the family moved several times between Groningen and Ost-Friesland (the surrounings of Emden). Furthermore it's known that a lot of members of this family had a function as notary, lawyer, schepene, judge etc. and a number of my living relatives have still such a function. Also some were Mayor and clergyman.

Origin of the familyname Koning

Where the family came from originaly is not known to me at this moment. There are however several possibilities which I like to sum-up here with references and quotations.

Request for help with the following searches:

  • There are clues that the regent Lubbert (or Egbert) Coninck wich in 1506 had 'the honour' Graaf Edzard van Oostfriesland, the new appointed lord of Groningen, to accommodate in his house in Groningen, direct family is. Of this I haven't found direct clues yet. I'm also not sure if this forfather has exsisted for certain. The trail between 1500 and 1650 is very vague by the many movings. Maybe there is someone who could help me further. The Northern-German searge is for me the biggest problem.

  • I'm also looking for data about a female Koning from about the end of the 1700's. She was married with refrent van Laer Dinckgreve Wich worked and lived in Sleen. I'm looking for her name, the name of her parents and of course dates and places.
