My atlas of the Low Countries lists four Beeks in The Netherlandes, one in Limburg, two in Gelderland, and one (Beek en Donk) in North-Brabant.  In the above list, I cannot be sure which of the Beeks is which except that when the entry reads “Beek NB” it may by Beek en Donk in North-Brabant.  But I cannot  even be certain of that.  Use the list with care.

  1. One of the places mentioned here as Beek has been renamed since and is currently called Prinsenbeek. The street names Groenstraat, Markt, Rietdijk, Valdijk and Emer are all located in or around Prinsenbeek. Best Regards, Bart.

  2. The streets ‘Spronkpark’ and ‘Wolfeinde’ are in Beek-Limburg.
