Herengracht 546 (Jacob van Lennep wandelroute)
His wife Henrietta Roell grew up on the Herengracht at number 546. Her father was against getting engaged to Jacob, perhaps because of the age difference (she was ten years older than him), perhaps because of the money (Jacob was not as wealthy as some other parties ), perhaps because of Jacob's reputation (he already had some affairs with girls).
