Mabel Spell and James F. Banta located data in the county of Friesland that indicates that Epke, son of Luuesz "probably spent his entire life at Minnertsga and Jelgersma nearby. These places were located north of Harlingen, a seaport. Epke owned an hereditary interest in a farm called Jelgersma Estate. This entitled Epke to vote in the Landdag, the county assembly."
The Landdag was the Legislative assembly of the County of Friesland in the Dutch Repurblic. Only the owners of certain hereditary properties were eligible to vote on the Landdag. Some members of the Landdag represented towns and districts while others represented only their own properties and families.
