Tracing their lineage back to the 18th century, the Dutch East Indies' Labrijn and Van Motman families have long been pillars of heritage and prestige. Both families have earned their place on the List of Dutch Patrician Families, a recognition that underscores their continuous, prominent role in Dutch society for over 150 years.
The rich heritage of the Van Motman family, in particular, has been vividly captured in Hella S. Haasse’s novel, 'Heren van de Thee' (The Tea Lords), providing a window into their historical significance.
Today, Percy Labrijn seeks to honor these deep-rooted family traditions. Aspiring to be a pioneer and uphold his patrician legacy, he is driven by a profound desire to contribute meaningfully to society, continuing the legacy of leadership and societal contribution that defines his family's storied past.
