In the 18th century members of this family conducted a big business under different names (Handelshuis Stadnitski en Zoon; later, Stadnitski en Cuperus; about 1800, Stadnitski en van Heukelom), trading with Germany, Switzerland, Spain, and the Caribbean islands and equipping ships. They were also bankers.
