Franz Hals

User: user13
Franz Hals

Hals was an ancient and honourable patrician family, intimately

connected with Haarlem for well-nigh three hundred years. The name first

appears in the annals of the city in 1350, and again and again

individuals bearing it held the offices of Burgomaster, Treasurer, and

_Schepen_--Alderman or Magistrate.


Pieter Claes Hals, Franz' father, was appointed a magistrate in 1575. In

1577 he was one of the _Regenten_, or Governors of the city Orphanage,

and in 1578 he became President of that famous institution.
