Introduction:

Whilst researching “van Waterschoot van der Gracht” and variations, other interesting information has continued to come to light. This page offers links to various and diverse detail. Not all of that linked is necessarily and / or directly associated with “van Waterschoot” but it is interesting nonetheless.

One of the historical difficulties has been the shifting nature of the name itself – refer elsewhere in this site.

FAMILY RESTAURANT:

Found originally by a “google” search, there is a Restaurant Waterschoot located at:

            Bochtenstraat 11, 2310 Rijkevorsel, Belguim.

            Tel.+32 (0) 3 314 78 78 or Fax +32 (0) 3 314 78 78.

It is owned / managed by a Phillippe Waterschoot, who is also the Chef.

Website:  www.restaurant-waterschoot.be

            (links to http://users.pandora.be/restaurant-waterschoot/ ).

Dual sites in Dutch and French exist. The Restaurant is also referenced at other sites, and as best determined, in terms of detail and assessment (guides in other words), information gleaned from these references indicate an excellent establishment with fine food and excellent hosts.

However, what caught my eye is the Restaurant logo which would seem to feature two martlet (for further detail on martlet, check the family crest pages).
