Ilpenstein Castle (second half 19th century)
|Built by||Volkert Overlander|
Ilpenstein Castle (Dutch:Ilpenstein, Huis te Ilpendam, Hof te Ilpendam) was a castle of the Free and high Lordship of Purmerend, Purmerland and Ilpendam, located in Ilpendam (Waterland) in the north of the city of Amsterdam.
After Overlanders death Frans Banning Cocq, who had married his daughter Maria, inherited his influence and properties in the north of Amsterdam as well as the title Lord of Purmerland and Ilpendam. After Banning Cocqs death in 1655 the castle belonged to the Amsterdam regent family De Graeff.
The last residents of the castle were Christina Elisabeth de Graeff and her husband Jacob Gerrit van Garderen. In 1872, the castle was sold and a new building was constructed at the site.
