The Arms of Nicolaas Laarakkers

The armorial bearings were designed by H.K. Nagtegaal from Delft, a leading heraldic artist and genealogist from the Netherlands and were assumed in 2006.

The arms are partially canting: A "Laar" (from the Latin word "Hlaeri") means an "open spot in a forest" while "akkers" is Dutch for agricultural fields. The key refers to the profession of the great-grandfather of the armiger, Lodewijk J.M. Laarakkers, b. Hertogenbosch 28 October 1874, prison warden, house master of the Correctional Facility of Scheveningen (The Hague), decorated with the gold medal of the Order of Oranje Nassau (23 Oct. 1939), d. Wassenaar 12 October 1953.

Lodewijk was married at Hertogenbosch, on 15 November 1902, to Anna Elisabeth Jadot, b.Hertogenbosch 5 August 1867, d. The Hague 30 August 1937.

The oldest known ancestor of the armiger is Jacobus Jacobsz. op de Laeracker (literally in English "on the Laeracker") who lived in 17th century and was a farmer on the Laarakker at Haps. The Laarakker was the property of the monastry of Sint Agatha in Cuijk but was leased by the family. He married, (Cuijk 1 November 1681 and Haps (Roman Catholic) 15 November 1681) Judith Peters Bloemers, who died at Haps on the 10th of May 1717.

An older coat of arms, from the 14th century, is known. This is a seal which was used by Hendrick Dircksz Laarakker, who was a "schepen" (an alderman) of Cuijk and Haps. However, it has not been possible to prove that the current Laarakkers family descents from this person.

The armiger was born in The Hague, is a practicing Roman Catholic and is a member of the Nederlandse Genealogische Vereniging and the Centraal Bureau voor Genealogie. He has published a book about his family history called "Ons Voorgeslacht. Stamreeksen Laarakkers, Van Zwet en De Groot,".
