    hi,

    Van Silfhout is a wellknown name in Wageningen, there used to be also 1 or 2 firms with that name - if you look in the Dutch phonebook now (www.detelefoongids.nl) you'll find 7 (private) entries in Wageningen alone, and many more in the region.
    Jordaan I couldn't find any in Wageningen, but there are some in the region around Wageningen, for example in nearby Veenendaal. And it is a quite common name in and around Amsterdam. In Wageningen I did find Jordens, in case the surname has been changed a bit...
    Hope it helps!
