I am looking for Constant (Constantin) Burvenich (born September 10, 1827 in Deinze). He was a teacher in languages (French, English) and thaught at the school for horticulture in Gentbrugge (Louis Van Houtte school; about 20 km from Deinze). On the 8th of November 1850, he is also mentioned on the student list at the same school to take some lessons in horticulture. He followed courses in the class of 2 famous botanists Planchon and Scheidweiler. Prof Scheidweiler also thaught at the Veterinary school in Brussels (Cureghem). The 4th of October of 1852 is is listed as a member of the examination committee of the school for admission of students.
One of Constants brothers is Frederik (born June 26, 1837 in Deinze). He also went to the school for horticulture in Gentbrugge where he graduated and became a teacher at the same school. Frederik is my great grandfather. At the moment I am preparing a biography on F.Burvenich because he was a well known horticultarist here in Belgium.
Their father is the cuppersmith, Louis Burvenich (born Nazareth - close to Deinze, February 19th and died in Deinze, August 1st 1841). Their mother passed away on March, 18th, 1842. Consequently Constant and Frederik were 15 and 5 yrs old when their mother died.
I have a lot of information on our family but I prefere to communicate on my professional Email address (firstname.lastname@example.org
). Constant is of special interest for the biography of F.Burvenich. I also would like to meet you personally to show and check some information to be sure that we are dealing with the same Constant. Showing you the family tree up to the 18th c. is not a problem.
Constant Burvenich published three books.
