Simplified Van Gorkom Family Tree
Simplified family tree of the Rutger branch. The scheme is based on the parents of generation XI. In other words, we only took the members of generation X who had children, and from them we worked our way back to Rutger of generation I who once came from Gorinchem to Utrecht. It means that all ancestors are left out who did not have a descendant belonging to generation XI. For example, Abraham Thomasse van Gorkom and Anneke Heijndricx (generation III) had ten children, but only the eldest and youngest are shown as they are the only ones with descendants belonging to generation XI.

Children of Abraham van Gorkom and Catrijn Abrams Godron (generation V-a74)
Abraham was son of Hendrik Abrahamse and Gerrichje Mierhout (IV-h48) and grandson of Abraham Thomasse and Anneken Heijndricx (III-a27).

VI-g96. Gertruijd
Gertruijd was baptized in the Domkerk on 14 February 1696. She married Wouter Schouten on 7 May 1721. At the time she lived in the Lijsbethstraat (Elisabeth Street). Witnesses of the marriage were the father of the bride, so Abraham, and the mother of the groom. Wouter lived in the Ballemakersstraat (Ballmakers street) at the time of his marriage. The couple had two children, Cornelis Schouten and Catharina Schouten (Kaatje). According to a notarial record, they lived in the Predikheerenstraat (Preachers Street) in 1753.

Both Geertrui and Wouter were merchants or traders, according to a notarial deed of 24 May 1750. They were rather successful and from 1738 on they bought several houses. On 11 April 1753 they donated to son Cornelis a house on the south side of the Neude and on 30 July of the same year daughter Caatje got a house in the Predikheerenstraat (not her parental home), two chambers in the Kloksteegje (Bell Alley) and a house in the Vinkenburghsteegh. This notarial deed mentions that Geertrui had a bad health, but as she was able to think clear and talk well and knew she was going to die, although uncertain about the hour, both she and Wouter wanted to give away their properties when still alive. Geertrui signed the deed herself. She died a few months later on 24 August 1753. Wouter died around 1756.

Son Cornelis owned a store. Although it is not recorded, it might be that he took over the store of his parents. And he did well too and went on buying real estate, farming fields (along the Biltse Grift, a little canal) and bonds. He married twice, first to Beatrix van Ommeren and his second wife was called Stijntje van Doesburg. Cornelis had no children of his own. He died in Utrecht on 4 May 1784, still living at the Neude. Executor of his will was his cousin Jan van Gorkom, son of Isaak. All cousins of Cornelis received a bequest of 1000 guilders as stated in his will.

VI-p97. Pieter
Pieter was baptized in the Domkerk on 1 August 1697. The family address was Bergstraat. Later on in life, this son of Abraham and Catrijn became rather rich as notarial records show. Pieter lived in Amsterdam at the Jan Hansjespad, outside the Raamsgate, jurisdiction Nieuwer-Amstel. He owned the house "De Rynsche Wynbergh", a pleziertuin (recreational garden) and a bleekveld (bleach ground). Apart from that he owned in Amsterdam a house in the Blomstraat, at the north side of the street, west of the Tweede Dwarsstraat (second side-street). He married Anna Margaretha Meyer under prenuptial agreements; this deed was drawn up on 13 September 1763. Pieter was at that time already 66 years old, so it was probably not his first marriage. Maybe the deed itself can give some more information about this. Also we do not know his profession. He died on 31 August 1773 in Nieuwer-Amstel. His heirs were the children of his sister Geertruij and of his brother Isaak. So we may conclude that Pieter had no children of his own. It was nephew Jan van Gorkom, son of his brother Isaac, who settled the inheritance.

VI-m99. Maria
Maria was baptized in the Jacobikerk on 27 July 1699. Witness was Jannetje Godron, probably the mother of Maria's mother, as christenings seem to be an affair of the mother's mother in those days.

VI-i01. Isaac
Isaac was baptized in the Jacobikerk on 17 February 1701. The family address was still Bergstraat. Isaac moved to Rotterdam for some unknown reason. It is in this town that he married Johanna Craal on 30 November 1728, both living in Roozant. Johanna was from Arnhem originally, in the east of the Netherlands. Their oldest child Abraham was born in Rotterdam as well in 1729. Apparently the family moved back to Utrecht between 1729 and 1731 as their other children were born in Utrecht.

Isaac and Johanna owned an uitdragerswinkel, a secondhand shop, as stated in a notarial deed from the much later date of 28 May 1795. It is not unlikely that the store was situated on the west side of the Lange Nieuwstraat (Long New Street), near the Korte Smeesteeg (Short Forger's Alley) on the corner of the Korte Elleboogsteegje (Short Elbow Alley). They had at least ten children. More about these children on the page about generation VII. All children, except the eldest, were born at the same address, Korte Smeesteeg. On 29 march 1751 Isaac died at the address "Lange Nieuwstraat next to the Korte Smeesteeg" and was buried in or near the Catharijnekerk (St. Catharine's church).

Later on Johanna Craal married again, this time to Anthonie Rietveld in Utrecht on 8 July 1752. This new husband therefore became the stepfather of Isaac's children. It was a Roman-Catholic marriage; they married in the parish Dorstige Hartsteeg (Thirsty Heart Alley). It seems that Anthonie was the Roman-Catholic, which was, as a consequence, of great influence on the education of the young children, aged 9, 7 and 3 years old. This education does not seem to have effected son Abraham much. He was already 23 years old, married and not living at home anymore. The rest of the originally protestant family, however, changed into a Roman-Catholic one. No children were born out of the marriage of Anthonie and Johanna. Johanna died on 25 January 1789. Anthonie died on 2 January 1795, living in the Lange Nieuwstraat then.

The notarial deed of 28 May 1795 gives a lot of information about the family situation from about 1750 onwards. When Isaak died the financial situation of the store was far from healthy. In fact the costs and debts were larger than the benefits. Only by zeal and diligence Johanna and her second husband overcame that stage. The store must have moved across the street to a location near the corner of the Zuylenstraat many years later. At the time that Johanna died, the house was not completely owned by the couple yet and eventually son Jan van Gorkom bought the house and store in 1795 for 1450.- guilders. The deed gives an accurate description and overview of the estate and the furnishings of store, home and stable and its value, compiled by daughter Aletta. Later on the store was owned by the descendants of Jan and was developed into an antique shop. In 1915 the shop still existed, but it did not survive the 20th century.

VI-n03. N.N.
From 1703 onwards a sad succession of burials follows. The first one was a nameless child on 26 August 1703.

VI-n04. N.N.
The second nameless child was buried on 4 December 1704.

VI-n05. N.N.
The third nameless child was buried on 13 January 1705, just six weeks after the previous one. The mother died a month later on 11 February 1705.

VI-n06. N.N.
The fourth nameless child was buried on 13 September 1706.


  
Children of Bartholomes van Gorkom and Stijntje Cornelis van Orsou (generation V-b76)
Bartholomes was son of Hendrik Abrahamse and Gerrichje Mierhout (IV-h48) and grandson of Abraham Thomasse and Anneken Heijndricx (III-a27).

VI-e99. Elisabeth
Elisabeth was baptized in the Domkerk on 20 February 1699.

VI-c01. Cornelis
Cornelis was baptized in the Domkerk on 24 July 1701.

VI-f04. Francijntje
Francijntje was baptized in the Domkerk on 5 March 1704.

VI-b05. Bart
Bart was baptized in the Jacobikerk on 12 November 1705. The family lived in the Slooresteeg. At the time of the christening Bart's father did not live anymore, according to the register.


  
Children of David van Gorkom and Willemijn Tibing (generation V-dh95)
David was son of Hendrik Abrahamse and Gerrichje Mierhout (IV-h48) and grandson of Abraham Thomasse and Anneken Heijndricx (III-a27).

VI-a21. Annigje
Annigje was baptized on a Christmas day, on 25 December 1721, in the Domkerk. Ten months before her parents married in the same church. In 1721 the young family lived at the Varkenmarkt. Annigje married in the Domkerk too, at the age of 36 to Jacobus Kemp on 27 March 1758. It is possible of course that there was a first husband who has not been traced. This is not very likely though, as the record would have said that she was a widow. It is more likely that she stayed home, until she felt not needed by her mother anymore. She was the eldest sister after all, differing 21 years in age with her youngest brother. At least two daughters were born. In the Jacobi Church, on 24 July 1760, Maria Kemp was baptized. Four years later, on 4 July 1764, Wilhelmina Kemp was baptized in the same church. At both occasions the family was living at the Pauwsteeg. Wilhelmina married Dirk Kraker on 21 September 1790. Six children are known from that marriage.

Mother Anna, widow of Jacobus Kemp, died on 10 February 1801 at the address Op 't Springweg in de weeskameren, leaving behind adult children. She was buried in the Buurkerk.

VI-h23. Hendrikje
A second girl was born, baptized on 6 October 1723. The family was again living at the Varkenmarkt. She married to Casper Sinkstock. In Dutch the family name Sinkstock sounds like it comes from a novel, meaning something like "zinc stick" or "sinking stick". Casper was a soldier in the Bekker regiment.

Catharijnekerk by Saenredam
Hendrikje was witness at the christening of two of the children of her brother Willem and sister-in-law Anna Maria van der Wal. Probably she had no children of her own. On 6 May 1787 she died in the Bergstraat, leaving behind adult friends, and was buried in the Jacobi churchyard.

VI-w25. Willem
Willem was baptized in the Jacobikerk on 14 July 1725. It is the church where many Van Gorkoms were baptized. Sadly this Willem died at the age of just one and half years on 2 January 1727 and was buried at the Jacobi churchyard.

Image to the right is a painting of the interior of the Catharijnekerk as seen in 1636 by Pieter Saenredam. Click here for an enlargement.

VI-w27. Willem
A second Willem was baptized in the Catharijnekerk on 3 June 1727. Mother Willemijn was already three months pregnant of this second Willem when the first Willem died. It was quite common in those days to pass on a name, when a child died at young age. Willem married Anna Maria van der Wal on 31 October 1755. He was 28 years old then. They had eleven children, who are named on the page about generation VII. The family lived from about 1761 till 1770 in the Hamsteeg bij de Varkensmarkt and from 1771 till 1801 in the Catharijnsstraat. According to one of the birth records mother Anna was a lutheran. Willem died in Utrecht on 11 July 1801 at the age of 74. His wife Anna died half a year later on 1 December 1801, living in the Santstraat.

VI-i29. Isaak
Isaak was baptized on 22 February 1729. We believe it is this Isaak who married Dorothea de Heeger on 17 January 1749. Actually there were two Isaaks at the time, who were second cousins. As the marriage record does not give a clue about either the parents of Isaak, or his age, we had the choice between the Isaak at this place or the other Isaak, who is also on this page (generation VI-i25) and who was born in 1725 as son of Abraham van Gorkom and Anna Maria Olivier, and grandson of Thomas Abrahamse van Gorkom and Sofia van Seventer. We concluded that there were two reasons to decide in favour of the Isaak who was born in 1729 as son of David and Willemijn. In the first place we looked at the names of the children of Isaak and Dorothea. It shows that they gave the names David and Willemina to two of the children, which are the names of the parents of the Isaak of our choice. Furthermore there are two attempts to call a daughter Pieternella. This is not a very common name, but as a matter of fact mother Willemijn had a sister called Peternella.

Second reason to decide for the Isaak who is son of David and Willemijn, is the report of the death of a completely other David van Gorkom, who was married to Willemina Gerrits (generation VII-d66). This David died in Lonneker, at the outskirts of the town of Enschede, on 28 May 1833. He was a son of Gerrit, mentioned below, so son of a brother of Isaak who is son of David and Willemijn, making him also the son of a second cousin of Isaak who is son of Abraham and Anna Maria Olivier. It turns out that the death of David in Lonneker was reported to the authorities by David Wijnand Jennes (generation VIII-a86), a greatgrandson of Isaak who was married to Dorothea de Heeger, and by the brother-in-law of this greatgrandson. In the death report of David from Lonneker these two are called 'cousin' and 'cousin-in-law'. If this David Jennes is indeed a greatgreatgrandson of David and Willemijn (because his greatgrandfather Isaak is son of David), than the grandfather of David Jennes is a first cousin of David in Lonneker. However, if the greatgreatgrandparents of David Jennes are Abraham and Anna Maria Olivier (because his greatgrandfather Isaak is son of Abraham), than the grandfather of David Jennes would have been a third cousin of David from Lonneker. The latter option seems to be less likely.

As a kind of illustration to all confusion, the fathers of the two Isaaks married at nearly the same time. These two fathers were eachothers first cousins David and Abraham. David married on 21 February 1721 and Abraham on 13 March 1721.

Smeetoren At the time of his marriage the Isaak of this section lived in de Catharinastraat (St. Catharine's street). This street is called Willemstraat nowadays and is found in Wijk C (the C-quarter) in the north of the old city, as Mark Wagenbuur (mark @ wagenbuur.nl) informed us. According to his information the Catharinastraat was renamed in 1863 on request of the population of Wijk C, which was known for its loyalty to King Willem III.

The marriage record also tells that Isaak was a church member of an unnamed protestant church. Isaak and Dorothea had at least ten children as mentioned on the page about the next generation (generation VII), and remarkably as well, in 1786 they happened to live in the Lange Smeesteeg (Long Forge Alley), the same Lange Smeestraat where a direct descendant, Emy (generation XIV), was born 200 years later, in 1983. Her birth triggered her father to start researching genealogy, and the foundation of this website was the result of it.

In the days of Isaak it was a small street, more to the south of the city, running from the Oude Gracht towards the Smeetoren (Forge Tower), which was part of the western city wall. On the painting above you see this Smeetoren, as seen from the north. It housed the Astronomical Institute of Utrecht University from 1643 until 1854. The drawing was made in 1843, eleven years before the tower was torn down. The city wall itself had already been demolished in 1831 and following years and replaced by a park in English landscape style, designed by J.D. Zocher Jr and his son—the same landscape architects who designed the Vondelpark in Amsterdam. The church in the background is the Geertekerk (St. Gertrude's Church). The roof to the left is the Bartholomeus Gasthuis, a hospital since 1367, nowadays a nursing home, standing on the corner of the Smeestraat. The same Bartholomeus Gasthuis can be seen behind the tree on the photograph below. On the photograph, you can also see a pattern of darker stones in the middle of the junction, which marks the place where the Smeetower once stood. The street in the middle is the Lange Smeestraat, which you can look down all the way to the Oude Gracht (Old Canal).

Dorothea de Heeger died at home in the Smeesteeg as a widow on 3 February 1816. The report to the register was made by her son David, a bricklayer who was living in the Tugthuissteegje, according to the death record. In the record the first name of his mother is spelled as Theodora, which is a mistake. This is even reason for her greatgranddaughter Johanna Theodora/Dorothea (generation IX-j10) to go to court for a name change. On 23 March 1799 an Isaak van Gorkom died. As he was living in the Lange Smeesteeg, you may assume that it is Dorothea's husband Isaak. The funeral was in the Geertekerk. According to the death record he had money, meaning that the church did not have to pay for the burial. The record also says that he was leaving behind a wife and grown-up children.

VI-j31. Johannes
Johannes was born in the Catharinastraat, nowadays known as Willemstraat. Hw was baptized, more or less around the corner, in the Jacobikerk on 11 March 1731. On 9 June 1752 Johannes married Johanna Serri, also in the Jacobikerk. Johannes was just 21 years old then. It seems they had no children as no birth records were found. They might have moved to another city of course, but this is unlikely as the death record of Johanna was found, stating that she died on 29 November 1789, the funeral being in the Buurkerk.

VI-j33. Jacobus
Jacobus was baptized in the Domkerk on 6 May 1733. On 27 November 1754 he married in the Domkerk as well. His wife was Johanna Milders. Just like Johannes, Jacobus was 21 years old when marrying. They had a twin, called Hendrica and Willemijntje, baptized on 24 November 1754. Willemijntje died six weeks later on 4 January 1755 and was buried door order van 't Gerecht (by court order). The mother was buried three days later on 7 January 1755. On 14 November 1755 Jacobus married Anna Maria Haak. Jacobus and Anna had several children as well as mentioned on the page about generation VII. Anna Maria died on 12 July 1787 and was buried in the Catharine Church. Jacobus van Gorkom died on 8 July 1812 at the age of 79. His son Ary and the son-in-law of his son David, called Steven Bitter, gave notice of his death to the authorities.

Lange Smeestraat
Jacobus died in the Oude Mannen- en Vrouwenhuis, the House for Old Men and Women, located at the Oude Gracht.

VI-g35. Gerrit
Gerrit was baptized in the Jacobikerk on 2 October 1735. He was nearly 30 years old, when marrying Cornelia van der Tol in the Catharijnekerk on 16 May 1765. They had at least two children, who are mentioned in more detail on the page about generation VII. Interesting to note, by the way, that Gerrit is the fifth boy in a row that shows regular intervals of two years: births in 1727, 1729, 1731, 1733, 1735 and 1737.

VI-e37. Everd
Everd was baptized in the Jacobikerk on 5 June 1737. He died after ten months on 15 April 1738.

VI-e38. Everd
Willemijn was pregnant for seven months already when the first Everd died. As the next child turned out to be a boy as well, they called him Everd again, when baptized on 5 June 1738, exactly one year after the first Everd. It doesn't seem to be a lucky name, as the second Everd died at the age of two, on 21 March 1741.

VI-aa39. Aletta
Aletta was baptized in the Domkerk on 6 September 1739. She probably died as an infant.

VI-e42. Everd
Nearly exactly a year after the death of the second Everd, a third Everd was born. He was baptized in the Jacobikerk on 11 March 1742. The family lived in the Koestraat. It is unclear what happened to Everd later on.

Children of Abraham van Gorkom and Anna Maria Olivier (generation V-a88)
Abraham was son of Thomas Abrahamse and Sofia van Seventer (IV-ta63) and grandson of Abraham Thomasse and Anneken Heijndricx (III-a27).

VI-c21. Cornelis
Cornelis was baptized in the Jacobikerk (James' Church) on 24 April 1721, together with his twin brother Jan. The family lived at the address Oude Gracht in 't Tinnegieterspoortje, meaning "Old Canal, in the Pewter Casters' Gate". This address remained the same for all siblings of Cornelis. His father Abraham had been born at this address, or very close to it as well, just like his aunts and uncles and his grandmother Sofia.

After the death of his parents, Cornelis became the guardian of his younger sister Sophia. It was probably this Cornelis who married in the Domkerk (Dome Church) Cornelia Boden from the Botterstraat on 10 February 1745. Both their parents had supplied permission to marry. Cornelis was a soldier in the regiment of general Baron van Rhede. A child called Mari was baptized in the Domkerk on 11 January 1749, the family address being Botterstraat. Two days later she died and was buried in the Buurkerk. A daughter Cornelia was baptized in the Dom Church on 21 November 1751. Now the address was Lijsbethstraat (Elisabethstraat). Daughter Anna Maria was baptized in the Geertekerk (St Gertrude's Church) on 23 May 1754, while the address of the family was in de Vrouwjuttestraat of Briettesteeg then. Two days later she died and was buried in the Nicolaikerk. The same address, we may assume, was now described as in de Birgittensteeg bij de Lange Nieuwstraat. Last known child of the couple was Sara, baptized in the Domkerk on 22 June 1755. From that date on, hardly any information about this family can be found.

VI-j21. Jan
Jan was baptized in the Jacobikerk on 24 April 1721, together with his twin brother Cornelis. Jan married Hendrina Beverloo in the Domkerk on 25 December 1745, so on the First Day of Christmas. A child Abraham was baptized in the Dom Church on 5 July 1747. They lived at the address Moolensteeg aan de Nieuwe Gracht. It appears that the child died on 26 May 1749. Jan passed away at the address bij de Geertebrug in het Tinnegieterspoortje on 11 September 1760. This home address is also the often mentioned address of his parents who had died seven years earlier. It is not clear whether the same house was meant. On 14 November 1760 Hendrina declared before the Momboir Chamber that her husband had not left any children.

VI-t23. Thomas
Thomas was baptized in the Geertekerk on 13 June 1723. Nearly twenty years later, on 3 February 1743, a Thomas died at the address in het Tinnegieterspoortje aan de Oude Gragt tussen de Smee- en Geertebrug, meaning "in the Pewter Casters' Gate at the Old Canal, between Smeebrug and Geertebrug", the latter being two bridges across the Oude Gracht. Based on this address, it has to be assumed that the Thomas who died here, is the same Thomas who was born in 1723 as a son of Abraham and Anna.

VI-i25. Isaac
Isaac was baptized in the Catharijnekerk on 1 April 1725.

VI-sa27. Sofia
Sofia was baptized in the Domkerk on 31 October 1727. As there was another Sofia soon afterwards, she must have died at young age. It looks like she was buried on 23 September 1729.

VI-s30. Sofia
A second Sofia was baptized in the Catharijnekerk on 16 April 1730. At the age of 19, Sophia gave birth to her son Baltus van Gorcom at the address of her parents Op de Oude Gragt. Her mother Maria Olivier was the witness of the baptism of the child in the Catharijnekerk on 3 February 1750. The story of Baltus is a rather odd one. Baltus married Maria Masthout on 24 May 1779, but he used the family name of Frowijn (sometimes spelled as Verwijn). An explanation could be that Baltus was named by his mother after his biological father. Indeed there was living in Utrecht at the time, a Balthasar Frowijn who was old enough to be the father of Baltus, but he was married to Johanna van der Puijl.

Baltus and Maria had three daughters. Sophia Willemina Frowijn was baptized on 30 January 1780. Margaretha Johanna Frowijn was baptized on 9 September 1781 and Hendrina Frowijn on 7 September 1783. Sophia Willemina married in 1804 Jan Lamie, a bricklayer, born in February 1781, son of Jan Lamie and Elisabeth Montfellier. Their son Jan Lamie, so named after his father and grandfather, was born in Utrecht in 1806. The button maker Baltus died on 22 January 1829. It was his grandson Jan Lamie, 23 years old then, who gave notice of the death of Baltus Gorcom, 79 years old, husband of Maria Masthout. He declared that the deceased did not leave any children behind, which is a curious remark. One year later on 3 January 1830 Jan Lamie, 47 years old, father of young Jan, and bricklayer too, gave notice of the death of Maria Masthout, 73 years old, widow of Baltus Gorcom. The deceased left behind adult children, so the son-in-law of Maria and Baltus declared.

Mother Sofia did not stay single after the birth of her son Baltus. On 13 July 1756 she married in Utrecht Sijmen Broekman (Simon). He was some five years younger than his wife. From this marriage six children were born: Elisabeth Broekman was baptized in the Domkerk on 25 February 1757, Abraham Broekman was baptized in the Jacobikerk on 7 September 1758, Cornelis Broekman was baptized in the same church on 18 September 1760, Hendrynxje Broekman was baptized in the Domkerk on 15 September 1764, another Elisabeth Broekman was baptized in the Geertekerk on 24 February 1766 and Maria Broekman was baptized in the Domkerk on 14 June 1769. The family lived Op de Springweg, Caatsteeg buiten de Weertpoort and Molensteeg op de Springweg. Sophia died on 4 March 1802 leaving behind her husband and grown-up children. She and Simon lived in the Jacobikerksteegje then. The widower Simon remarried on 19 June 1804 Josina Penning (Joosje), born in Utrecht in about 1744. Simon died on 16 June 1820, 85 years old in the home for the elderly. His second wife was already deceased.

When son Cornelis Broekman died at the age of 66 in Utrecht on 3 July 1826 his mother was called Elizabeth Verwijn. Wrong first name of course, but the surname Verwijn (Frowijn) appeared once more in this history.

VI-a32. Adrianus
Adrianus was baptized in the Catharijnekerk on 5 August 1732.


  
Children of Isaac van Gorkom and Dirkje Woertman (generation V-i95)
Isaac was son of Thomas Abrahamse and Sofia van Seventer (IV-ta63) and grandson of Abraham Thomasse and Anneken Heijndricx (III-a27).

VI-j24. Johannes
Johannes was baptized in the Catharijnekerk on 14 August 1724. He was buried after two and half weeks on 31 August 1724. The family address was Springweg aan de Wal.

VI-j26. Johannes
A second Johannes was baptized in the Catharijnekerk on 10 September 1726. After the death of the mother the custody for this child was arranged by notarial deed. Johannes is mentioned again in a notarial deed drawn up on 26 February 1733, when his father married his second wife Angenita van der Sluijs. He was 7 years old then.

A Johannes married in the Jacobikerk on 29 June 1752 Johanna Serrie (Sorie), daughter of Max Sorie and Anna Maria Lamie. On 17 March 1754 a son Isaak was baptized in the Domkerk. Unfortunately he died on 9 April of the same year and was buried at the Jacobi Churchyard. The address was Lange Viesteeg. It is the only known born child of this couple. Johanna died on 29 November 1789 and was buried in the Buurkerk. She left behind 'her husband and no children'. Johannes died ten years later on 9 December 1799 and left behind adult family, according to the church record. He was buried in the Buurkerk as well. Both Johannes and Johanna lived at the home for the elderly.

It is not completely certain to which family this Johannes belongs. One possibility is to present him here as a son of Isaac and Dirkje, but he could also be a son of David van Gorkom and Willemijn Tibing (above). It seems more satisfactory to place him in this family. Since Johannes named his son Isaak, it makes more sense to link this Johannes to the parents Isaac van Gorkom and Dirkje Woertman and not to the parents David van Gorkom and Willemijn Tibing. A second important argument is that a Johannes died as a mondige vrijer (adult unmarried man) at the address Catharijnestraat on 31 March 1759, which was the address of David and Willemijn Tiebing at the time.

VI-si27. Sofia

VI-z37. Zophia
Zophia, or Sophia, was baptized in the Jacobikerk on 31 March 1737. The family address had stayed the same. Sophia also stayed single and was 86 years old when she died on 27 January 1823. Like her sister she was living in the home for the elderly at the Oude Gracht bij de Jansbrug then.

VI-a40. Anna
Anna was baptized on 15 May 1740. The family still lived at the address Sakkedragerssteeg. Anna is mentioned in a notarial deed of 27 November 1762. For now nothing more is known about her.

VI-j43. Jesina
Jesina, also known as Josina, was baptized in the Domkerk on 27 February 1743. Again, the address was Sakkedragerssteeg. Josina married Arnoldus Duwel. Two children are known: Isac Duwel and Elisabeth Duwel. Isac married Cornelia van den Broek Hazeveld. They divorced on 14 July 1818.

VI-n23. N.N.
On 15 March 1723 a nameless child of Jan was buried in the Jacobikerk (St. James's Church).

VI-n24. Nella Margarietta
Nella Margarietta was baptized in the Janskerk (St. John's Church) on 30 April 1724. In the same year, on 9 September, a child of Jan was buried in the Jacobikerk. It was probably this child Nella Margarietta, as a few years later another child was given the same names. Nella Margarietta was named after her grandmother Neeltje Kuijpers. The middle name refers to two relatives. Father Jan had a sister called Margaretha and grandmother Neeltje had a sister, who was called Grietje Kuijpers.

VI-j25. Jelis
Jelis was named after his grandfather Jelis van Makkum. He was baptized in the Jacobikerk on 30 September 1725. Jelis married Petronella Mouton in the Domkerk on 15 December 1756. Already in 1750, though, their first child Johannes was born, son of Jilles van Gorkum and Pieternella Muller, a church record says. The names Petronella Mouton and Pieternella Muller resemble to such an extent that one may assume the same person was meant. Even in 1828, in the death record of daughter Johanna, the name Muller reappears as a corruption of the name Mouton. She was also known as Pieternella Mulder, Maton and Waton.

It means that the first child was almost seven years old, when his parents got married or could marry. A second child was one year and a half at the time. Maybe this late wedding was due to Jelis' profession, as he was a soldier. Most of the children were born in the Wijde Doelen, in the south of the old city, but between 1768 and 1780 the family moved back to the Zakkedragersteeg, the same alley where Jelis and his wife used to live in their childhood. Jelis died there on 19 August 1780 and was buried in the Jacobikerk in the northern part of town, leaving behind his wife and five children. Petronella died on 20 February 1803 and was buried in the Buurkerk, still living in the Zakkendragersteeg. She must have been poor, as in 1780 she was bedeeld door the Aalmoesenierkamer (given money by the Chamber of the Chaplain), having five underaged children. The children of Jelis and Petronella can be found on the page about generation VII.

VI-n27. Nella Margrita
Nella Margrita's family name was also Van Gorkom with an "o". She is the second daughter with these two christian names. She was baptized in the Janskerk on 26 January 1727. She married three times. First (Laurens) Mauritz Verheij in the Domkerk on 7 February 1753. He must have died in about 1762. In a notarial deed of 15 September 1762 the widow Neeltje Margareta and her four minor children Jan Verhey, Geertruyd Verhey, Margareta Verhey and Jelis Verhey were mentioned as heirs. The next day, on the 16th, she would marry Huijbert van Osting in the Jacobikerk. He must have died too, as she married Arnoldus Loschert in the same church on 9 May 1782. Helena Margareta, as she was called now, died at the address Korte Rozendaal on 12 January 1810. She left behind her husband and adult children.

Sophia was named after the mother of her father. She was baptized in the Jacobikerk on 17 October 1728. On 8 November 1729 a child of Jan van Gorkum was buried in the Jacobikerk. It must have been this one year old child.

VI-z30. Zophia

Leendert was baptized in the Janskerk on 20 January 1710. The family lived at the address Bij de Jacobibrug. On 23 January 1715 a child of Michiel was buried in the Jacobi churchyard. It might have been this Leendert, as a second Leendert was born soon afterwards.

On 10 July 1742 he married in Utrecht in the Catharijnekerk (St. Catharine's Church) Geertruij Mine. Dirk lived in the Bergsteeg then and Geertruij at the address op de Nieuwe Camp. There were some difficulties to prove Dirk's descent, but by now it is clear that he is a son of Michiel. For instance, Dirk and Geertruij had nine children. Among the names of the children there is a Maria and a Leendert, names of Dirk's mother and brothers. According to the Momboir Registers Dirck declared that his aunt Elisabeth Smit, old spinster from the Bergsteeg, did not have any children when she died. This aunt has the same family name as his mother.

In the same momboir registers can be found that Frans Minnee and Barbara Robberts were the parents of Geertruij Mine. On 21 December 1792 a Dirk died. It must be the son of Michiel and Maria who died in the 'Home for old men and women', leaving behind adult children. Geertruij died one month later in the same home for the elderly on 28 January 1793, being a widow then and leaving behind adult children as well. Dirk was master coppersmith for his profession. There is one notarial deed from 1751 in which Dirk rented a house 'outside the Weertpoort'. Several children were born at that address. They are mentioned on the page about generation VII.
