For a number of generations, the families of van de(r) Krol lived on the farms ‘De Groote Krol’ and ‘De Kleine Krol or Elleboog’ in Garderbroek, a hamlet near Kootwijkerbroek in the municipality of Barneveld. De Groote Krol, which is currently home to Krollerweg 9, and De Kleine Krol or Elleboog, now home to Garderbroekerweg 102, are located a few hundred meters apart.

Genealogical research has shown that everyone with the name ‘van de Krol’ or ‘van der Krol’ is a descendent of the same ancestors of one of the two farms.

Descendants of Frederik Dirksen all come from the farm de Groote Krol. Descendants of Aert Lubbertsen all come from the farm de Kleine Krol of Elleboog. People did not start using the name van de(r) Krol until 1811.
