Jan Hendrikse Boon originated in Lippe, Germany

Boon seems to be a quite common surname in Holland. I do have ancestors with this surname in the villages Moordrecht, Lekkerkerk and Goudriaan. In Dordrecht, Holland, I stumbled upon another, not related, Mr. Boon.

Jan, son of Hendrik Boon, was born in the county of Lippe in Germany. In May 1719 he was a widower, living in the village of Ridderkerk, Holland, when he was married in Dordrecht to Magdalena Schuurmans, who was living at the Varkenmarkt in Dordrecht. Her place of origin is given as "Mulheijm", likely Mülheim; Germany features 5 different places named Mülheim.

Dordrecht, Sunday May 7, 1719:

Jan Hendrikse Boon married Magdalena Schuermans on 21 May 1719 in Dordrecht.
The couple had a daughter, Hendrikje, baptized on 12-1-1721 in Dordrecht.
