The familyname finds his source in a farm close to Oosterwolde, Ooststellingwerf in Friesland. Only a few years the family lived here coming from Oldeberkoop and before from Jubbega in Schoterland, all located in southeast Friesland.
About this family is a complete genealogy published in 1995 by Jan, Matty & Joan Ten Hoor. The Ten Hoor-familytree is a combination of my own research about my paternal grandmothers family and the published genealogy.
All people named Ten Hoor are members of this family. A very vast part of the family settled in the United States.
