1772: New windchest. New manuals and partly new mechanism. Extension by a Fluit 4'.
1867: Repairs by N.A.G. Lohmann. Sexquialter and Mixtuur replaced by Viola da Gamba discant and Salicionaal 4'.
1901: W.K. Beukema moves the organ to Mensingeweer without
its dummy Rugpositief. By placing the organ in Mensingeweer the intonation was

The organ was buyed for fl. 400,-.
