This Waterborg family has its roots in Leek, Groningen. While the earliest forefather found was a weaver, later generations were involved in shipping.

I am not sure exactly when the family took the name Waterborg. I have found several acts in civil registration dated after 1811 where the name is not used. You will also find the name spelled Waterberg.

There is another Waterborg family in Groningen with origins in Leer, Oostfriesland, but I have not found any relationship between them and this one.

Note: In the following genealogy I have included some related families. The ones that are part of the genealogy proper will be numbered in the form W.IV.3 (which means fourth generation, third family).
