Surnames: FERLEMAN, FERLEMANN

I'm trying to track the surname "FERLEMAN". I was told this weekend that the family comes from Zeeland, Netherlands but the best I can tell, "Frederick FERLEMAN" and wife "Sophie Christine (Hoege) FERLEMAN" emigrated from Ladbergen, Westphalia, Germany to New Knoxville, Ohio in 1860. I think I have this line tracked directly back to me.

This new information indicates the family has a Dutch Coat of Arms. In this report I was told that Maaike Anthonette FERLEMAN (b. 1850) married Johannes Willem WAS in 1879 in Haamstede, Netherlands. Maaike was the daughter of Hubert Willem FERLEMAN and Neeltje Hoogenboom FERLEMAN.

I'm also told a FERLEMAN name appears on a stone near a lock from 1736 in the village Oud Vossemeer the reference is to him being a Dickmaster. The name appears to be W.E FERLEMAN. Finally, I'm told from another genealogist that the family goes back to 1640 in Zeeland.

Today, I found at the CBG-Netherlands (on-line) 4 references to the name FERLEMAN. But I only speak english and don't really understand what it all meant. Such as what is the Collectie Bloys van Treslong Prins A. I only understand some of the words but can't figure out the only thing (What
is Prins A. - Prins is Prince)

The earliest use of the name I can find is Johan Herman Wilhelm FERLEMAN (V), I think he's from Ladbergen, Westphalia, Germany. I'm getting a feeling there are two lines to the surname FERLEMAN. One the German (FERLEMANN) and another the Dutch (FERLEMAN). Now I've also found a
Frank Lewis FERLEMAN from the early 1900, who lived in Waterford, Ireland. I've got to think the German and Dutch FERLMAN's are related.

Another issue I'd like to figure out is what the name FER-LE-MANN means.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
