In 1597, his grandfather, Tiarck, paid Weinkauf on Parcel 13, Klein-Holum, Ostfriesland, in Tjarck’s father’s name (probably when Tjarck’s grandmother Rinnolt Remmers died, since it had been her family’s property)
In 1650, Tjarck’s father Haye said that had been when he was 3 or 4 years old, and he couldn’t remember anything more about it.
In 1670, the parcel is still referred to as Hayo Bremers’ farm, but the name Tyarck Bremers is now attached to it too.

The Weinkaufprotokolle des Amtes Esens, a record of property transfer fees from 1554 to 1811, shows that Seriemer Vogtei Herd 13, a 43-Diemat parcel, was once the farm of Remmer Koncken.

In the 1632 Deichrechnung, Seriemer Herd 13 is still listed under the name Remmer Koncken, although he probably died around 1590. In 1635, the name Hayo Bremers is attached to the farm. In the 1650 “Designation und Erkundigung,” a roundup of Weinkauf records from years past, the property is described as belonging to Haye Bremers:

“43 [Diemat], wurde vor ungefähr 60 Jahren auf ihn [verweinkauft]. Er weiß sonst keine Nachricht, da er damals noch ein Kind von 3 oder 4 Jahren war.”

[43 Diemat, was “Weinkaufed” for him about 60 years ago. He knows no other information, because he was then still a child of 3 or 4 years.]

At some time between 1658 and 1696 (possibly in 1670), the Seriemer farm passes to Hayo’s son Tjarck, whose death is recorded in 1696, at which time the farm is passed to his son Haye.

The names Rinnolt and Remmer are both carried down among Tiarck Bremers’ descendants.

The Weinkaufprotokolle itself has an intriguing history, best covered in a separate article.

At this period in local history, it is unusual for a family name to be entered in the records. Most people were identified by their given name plus their patronymic: Tiarck Haigen[son], or Tiarck, the son of Hayo. It is noteworthy that for several decades of successive generations of this family, the records identify them as Bremer or Bremers.
