Vanderslice Ancestors

Taken from "Record of the VanDerslice Family" - The first Van der Sleize was found by a nobleman's wife lying on a beach of the North Sea near or in the city of Groseingen, Holland. He was adopted by the family, but could not take their name. They, not knowing his right name, gave him the name of Van der Sleize, meaning - From the sea Beach. He grew up in their family and married their daughter. The father and mother died and left him and his wife their estate and title which was the father's, he being a Baron. The crest of the Baron was an Arm with a Coat of Mail on it and a dagger in its hand striking downward. The Baron Van der Sleize on taking his title was given as a Crest a Shell representing the place or beach where he was found. He amassed a fortune and was very charitable. For his charity, which was very great, he was endowed with the Cross of the Legion of Honor which was put on a Shield (Dutch) in addition to his Father-in-law's Crest and his own, and the motto 'Sans Crainte' to constitute his Coat of Arms. The motto means 'without fear.
