The arms of the family
Evenboer, assumed in 1985, are canting arms and derived from the
hamlet Ruitenveen in the municipality Dalfsen, Netherlands.
The arms of the family
(von) Padberg of Küstelberg in Sauerland, Germany, were granted:
Brandenburg-Preusische Standeserhebung, Berlin, Germany, 11th January
1876, and 14th June 1882.
These granted arms
resemble the arms of the old noble family von Padtberg, extinguished
in the male line shortly after 1945, from which the former probably
descends. Both these families are described in: Genealogisches
Handbuch des Adels, Adelslexikon Band X, Limburg an der Lahn 1999, p.
The Padberg arms were
also registered by the armiger in the Netherlands with the Fryske Rie
foar Heraldyk, Genealogysk Jierboek 1990, p. 153.
The crest can be depicted in two ways:
1. an eagle’s wings with two bars Vair, and
2. issuing from a coronet Or five ostrichfeathers, two Or and three
Both arms were restyled and assumed in 1985 by the armiger before
registration at the Centraal Bureau voor Genealogie. The artwork was
done by Karel van den Sigtenhorst.
