Wolfgang von Graben (also named Wolfgang de Groben, Wolfgangus de Gröben) (-1521), Viscount (Burggraf) of Saldenhofen, lord of Graben and Kornberg; Wolfgang was the son of Ulrich III von Graben (died 1486), imperial viscount of Marburg and Graz, lord of Graben and Kornberg, state captain of the Dukedom of Styria and advisor and chancellor to Emperor Friedrich III of the Holy Roman Empire. Wolfgang married, moved 1483 to Holland where he remarried, whence sons Pieter and Abraham. Both sons called Graeff, but De Graeff was the Dutch spelling of Von Graben in the 14 and 15th century.

Sources[]

  • De Graeff in the Nieuw Nederlandsch biografisch woordenboek. Deel 2 - no apparent reference to the Herman question: "...Een adelsdiploma aan Andries de Graeff en zijn zoon geschonken door keizer Leopold in 1677" ... "Zekere Wolfgang von Graben zou, naar Holland omstreeks 1483 gekomen, daar gehuwd zijn en een zoon Pieter hebben gehad, ..."
  • Herman op den Graeff (1585-1642) - "Ancestors of Andrea Kay Warner"; Page has "6680. Herman ..." at the top, states that his father was "13360. Abraham ..." with no dates; later says the "Abraham" is speculative; later "quotes" from the Bincelini 1662 book, ending (tantalisingly) with:
    • "c. Wolfgang De Groben married 1483 moved to Holland where he remained, remarried and from whom the Op den Graeffs - Pieter Op den Graeff (married Grietz Pieters Berents (Grieta Pietirz) Abraham Graeff born 1490 - Dutch Reformed, estates seized by the Pope in 1561, died at Dusseldorf a few years later. "
Three more recent publications are cited below that. "13360. Abraham" a few pages later adds nothing to Abraham.
  • Op den Graeff - partly repetitive but clearly favours Duke paternity; email requested clarification, October 2013.
  • Early lineage of the Op den Graeff family - includes:
    • "Source of Information: Works of Gabriel Bincelint, printed in Ulm Germany, 1662."
    • .....
    • "(2) Abraham op den Graeff, born 1490, died 1561, age 71, in Duesseldorf, Germany
    • "Child: Herman Isacks op den Graeff, born 26 Nov. 1585 in Aldekerk, Germany, died 27 Dec. 1642, Krefeld, Germany.
    • "Married: Gritijen Pletjes, daughter of Driessen (Abdreas) Pletjes and his wife Alet Gobles Syllys on 16 Aug. 1605, at Kempen, Germany. Greitijen died 17 Jan. 1643 in Krefeld, Germany."
        • an obvious flaw there: Herman born 24 yr after father dies; email query sent, October 2013; it bounced: address no longer exists.
