Joris GODERIS / GODERUS / GOEDERIS / GODDERIS etc.
He married Maurintgen
Elva Lyon made out a good case for the family being Mennonites :
"Members of the Goderis family were baptised as adults (and witnessed
other adult baptisms) in the Haarlem Dutch Reformed Church for a period
spanning two generations and nearly twenty years (1639-1658)". Elva did
not include Lysbeth (below) who was baptised as an adult in
1835 in Overschie. At this time Haarlem had so many Mennonites amongst
its prominent citizens it was called the "Mennonite Haarlem" making up
15 to 20% of the population.4
1606- Joris Goederis bought a lot in de lottery of 1606 in Haarlem,
meant to finance the building of the Oudemannenhuis (Old Men's House).
The participants would submit a short piece of prose or poetry which was
registered with the ticket purchase :-
No. 74. Als(t) God(t)
beha(e)cht ist beter benit als beclacht - If it pleases God, it is (the
situation will be) better envied (because I won) than pitied
(because I lost).
The registration ends :-
Haerlem Joris Goderis in St. Usselstech(?) - fl.2 st. 2 (2 guilders 2
stuivers = 42 stuivers, so he bought 7 tickets @ 6 stuivers each).
