Fr. Blockmans, 1938).

Around the time period of 1218, a couple of confiscations of Ghent
produced cloth goods occurred in Bruges by the Count of Flanders,
because of the monies owed to him by the city for building a sluice at
Damme near the mouth of the river Lieve.
Jan (John) Bruninc who had come to Bruges lost 32 died cloth sheets,
while Filips (Philip) Van der Hagen en Ogier (Otger) Bake, who had
brought 56 died cloth sheets to the Bruges fair, also lost their goods
to the Count. The heirs of the wronged people, some of whom claimed they
were ruined by the confiscation, in 1305-1312 requested restitution from
Robrecht van Bethune. Names of relatives of the latter two merchants
appear on the Ghent referendum of 7©9 January/ 8 April 1297; Clais
(Nicolas) Bake, merchant and citizen of Ghent, and Bauduins (Baldwin)
del Haie, master drapery manufacturer and citizen of Ghent (Source:

Note: de French version of the family name van der Hagen (Haghen) is:
