Arie Cornelis Van Eeden (June 14, 1766 Haarlem - November 19, 1836 Haarlem), nurseryman
Jan Arie Van Eeden (1795 Haarlem - 1858 Haarlem), nurseryman
[From Journal of a Horticultural Tour
, 1823, p. 169-171:] The name of Van Eeden having been noted, for more than a hundred years past, in this line of horticulture, we naturally began by inquiring for Van Eeden's bloemistry. We soon discovered that there were no fewer than four of the name, all descendants, we believe, of a common ancestor who had acquired fame as a florist, and all possessing gardens in the neighbourhood of each other. These are situate to the south of the town, on the other side of the Sparen, a small river which flows partly through Haarlem, and partly on the outside of it, under the fortifications. We entered the garden of Mynheer Matthew Van Eeden, over the door of which was inscribed Hqf van Flora....The flower-garden of Mr H. Van Eeden and Co. is larger than that which we had more particularly examined. The collection, again, of Widow Van Eeden and Son is but small. The most extensive collection is doubtless that of Mr Arie Cornelis Van Eeden.
