This moment there are about 400 living persons with the name 'Maarleveld' on this world.

Most of them (379 in 2007 see: http://www.meertens.knaw.nl/nfb/index.php?taal=eng ) are living in The Netherlands. But there are also Maarlevelds living in Germany and The United States of America.

On this website there are data of more 1200 Maarlevelds and about 600 partners, living between 1500 and today. It is not clear of all this Maarlevelds belong to one family. After research in Dutch archives it is possible to make three familygroups of Maarlevelds. The ancestors of each group lives all the seventeenth century in the west of The Netherlands in the province South-Holland.
