The research of the Heeren family takes us back to 1622 Adriaan Heeren before this time the Spanish were in control of most of southern Holland and Belgium and destroyed many records.The struggle, which would continue until 1648, had a major impact on the lives of the ordinary people from Brabant. Soldiers from both the Spanish and the State side destroyed the harvest and plundered. The residents of Tilburg in particular were the victims of hunger. Many Protestants who lived in the south fled to the north, taking a lot of capital with them, which meant an economic blow to Brabant. City dwellers also suffered from the war. Steenbergen, for example, was taken several times and the city was virtually destroyed at the end of the war.
