SimsVille Families

Some time ago Maisie started with a family information-page for each playable family. I liked the idea of giving some backgroundinformation of the families, but didn't want to write a full page for each of my families.
Instead I decided to create a page similar to the one of my playable NPC page, where I give some information of each family.

This list is alphabetical, and the 1st family is always the one that gets number 1 behind their name, like Fen and Goofy Mishoen are the Mishoen 1 family, and Marc, Nuan and Tika are the Mishoen 2 family.
Uni-households and combined roommate families are not included in the list.

The Belio Family 
Bram and Ling moved to SimsVille when their daughter, Jo, was only a toddler. They moved here together with Ling's brother and sister, Quan and Yin, to raise their kids away from the big city. When Jo was 10 years old, the family expanded with the birth of their twin boys, Steven and Stephan.
Jo wasn't an easy teen, but eventually made it to college, and married Jack Penninkmeijer in April 2021. In 2022 Jo and Jack had their son, Eli, giving Bram and Ling their first grandchild.
Steven also made it to collge, but his twin-brother didn't. Stephan however did move out to try and make it on his own.
Soon after moving to SimsVille, Bram opened Belio's Bunk, a toy store, in SimsVille, while Ling started out as a housewife. When the kids got older she got a job in housekeeping.
Despite the succes of the store, the family never was able to buy their own house, and are still renting a house in SimsVille.

 The Burrie-Mertens Family
Melissa Mertens is one of the oldest daughters of Mia and Ludo Mertens (read more of their backstory here). She and Mario met at college, after he just broke up with his girlfriend, Magda Sels. Even though they had been dating for some time, they lived with roommated right after college.
In 2025 they bought a house in Simmeria.

The de Leeuw Family:

The de Leeuw-Lillig Family
Larissa de Leeuw married Johnny Young when he first moved to SimsVille. They had one daughter together, Elisa, and Johnny also had a daughter from a previous marriage, Mairi, but she never lived with them, since she was almost 18 by the time Johnny and Larissa got married. Seeing Johnny was quite a bit older than Larissa he died when Elisa was only a teen. Larissa raised their dautgher on her own. She found love again in Berend Lillig when Elisa was already at college.
Berend Lillig is the former boyfriend of Ella (Rai) Roque. They moved in together rather quickly, and have one daughter together, Madeleine. Despite living with Ella, Berend kept looking around and couldn't resist temtation in the form of Emily Robins. He broke up with Ella, and moved in with Emily. This was never Emily's plan, and the couple couldn't make it work, so they broke up as well. Not long  after their break-up Berend met Larissa, and started dating her.
They have been together for several years now, but still aren't married. They live in a rental house in Simmeria, but spend all their free time in their cabin in The Ardens, preferably with their children and grandchildren.

The Draper Family
Jason Draper moved to SimsVille with his sister, Mia, and their grandparents, Eve and Jonas, after their mother, Marie died. He went to college and lived alone for a while after graduation. Jason had many girlfriends back then, one of them being Kristianne Spits. Who broke off their relationship after finding out she was pregnant, and didn't see Jason as a fit father. She never told him about the pregnancy, nor does he know about their twins, Anabel and Anthony.
After his break-up with Kristianne, he went back to the girl he went to college with, Ada van Straten.  They ended up buying a house in Simmeria, they have 1 son, Lucas, and Jason opened his business, Cup Of Cake.
Ada and Jason broke up in 2022, because they both knew they wanted different things from life. Ada wanted to get married and have more children, which wasn't something Jason wanted. Jason got the business and Ada got the house. Jason lived in an apartment for some timen, but after selling his business he was able to buy a small house. Lucas lives 3 days week with his dad.

The Gerrits Family

Even though Marie was working at SimsVillle Up Hill Elementary School, the couple decided to move to Simmeria to be closer to the hospital where Sya was (and still is) working.
The couple got married in 2018. They both wanted kids, and so they contacted Sya's best friend, Marcus Young, and asked him to be a donnor for them.

She hasn't yet reached that goal, but she hopes to get there with the elections of 2026.
Chu and Quan already had Anna when they moved to SimsVille, but when Anna was 6, they expanded their family with a son, Benny. When they were 54 and 53, Quan and Chu decided to adopt a child, something no one in their families ever expected them to do. They got through, and in 2024 they welcomed another son into their family, Florian. By that time both Anna and Benny had moved out.
Anna surprised them all by getting pregnant unexpectedly at college when she was only 19. Followed by another unexpected pregnany a year later. After college she opened her own bookstore at SVU and got married to the father of her children, when she was already expecting their 3rd child.

The Mishoen Family
Lin-Mei and Gruns were one of the first ones to move to SimsVille all those years ago. Gruns and Lin-Mei opened their own gym. After their death Fen took over, but despite liking fitness, Fen eventually sold the place to focus more on a stable career.
Gruns and Lin-Mei's 2 daughters, Nuan and Fen,  decided to move with their parents. Nuan was already married to Marc by that time, and the couple already had a daughter of their own, Tika.
Fen, on the other hand, was kind of a wild one. She decided to stay with her parents, when her sister and her family moved to the house next door. Soon after moving to SimsVille Fen met Gunnar Roque, and she started seeing him. When she got pregnant, she hoped Gunnar would choose her over his girlfriend, but he stayed with his collegesweetheart, Frieda. Fen gave bith to their son by herself. She always resented him for ruining things for her and his father, and she was never able to to forgive him, even though she did know it really wasn't Nio's fault. Nio was mostly raised by his grandparents.
A few months after Nio's birth, Fen met Goofy, and not long after their first meeting, Goofy moved in. Even though Fen never had a lot of attention for Nio, Goofy always had time to spend with Nio. It seemed like Goofy was the one for Fen, because after a few years Goofy and Fen got married. And despite her bad relationship with Nio, Fen gave in to Goofy's pleads for a child of his own, and they had Tina.
Nio moved out as soon as he could. He didn't go to college, and married his older girlfriend Stella, who he later has 3 kids with.
Tina kind of took after her mother, and got pregnant at 19, from a guy who left town when he heard he would become a father.
Despite not being the best mom, Fen is a devoted grandmother to her 4 grandchildren. She and Goofy try to spend as much time with them as possible, and even moved to Simmeria, because both the kids live there, to be closer to their grandchildren. They take them out on trips and arrange sleep-overs.
