What is "Langelaar"
The word Langelaar goes back to the year 1472 when there was a Hendrik van Langelaer in the neighbourhood of Scherpenzeel (Holland).
"langle", a farm that looks like a castle , stood between Scherpenzeel en De Glind.
It was also known as the forest "langlo" (lo is an old word for forest) , the word "laer" means a open place in the forest.
On this place , there is a new farm named "De Langelaar" also known as "Groot Langelaar", because the old farm burned down (nearly the year 1900).
De farm in 1731
In 1998 we can find the name Langelaar everywere, but I think most in the neighbourhood of Ede, Veenendaal and Barneveld.
Is everyone named (van) Langelaar family?
I still don´t know , but maybe we get soon the answer.
