These pages will try to give the (currently) known information on the family name
This name is formed in the early 19th century, shortly after Napoleon
had installed the civil registration.
When a young father (Jan Frans van Enschut) gave the name
of his mother as a givenname to his newly born son as a tribute to his
mother (Maria Agneta d'Achard) who was the last of an ancient french bloodline.
Because this is potentially an enormous amount of information I will limit myself to two ways of presenting:
first: all my known Ancestors
Second: all known Descendants of Jan Frans
If you have new or different information please let me know.
Because this is personal information I fully recognise that some may oppose to posting it on the web.
If so, please let me know and I will suppress all information that is not obtainable through public records.
Mainly this site is to bring people together and to acknowledge the the bonds we share
Hans d'Achard van Enschut, November 2007
