Generation XII - Rutger Branch


On this page

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.

XII-r23. Rudolf Evert van Gorkom
Rudolf, born in Zandvoort on 12 December 1923, worked at the same bank as his father did. One of his colleagues at Pierson's was a telephone operator, called Johanna Maria van Waardenburg (Joop), with whom he got engaged. She was born in Gorinchem (!) on 26 januari 1921 as daughter of Arnoldus van Waardenburg and Maria Anna Antoinetta Mötter (Marie). Father Arnoldus was born in Hurwenen on 21 March 1883 and died in Gorinchem on 20 December 1952. He was a wholesaler, trading paper, printed matter and baking ingredients. Mother Maria was born in Millingen on 24 November 1891 and died of tuberculosis in Gorinchem on 10 August 1942. Daughter Joop, called "Mop" by the Van Waardenburg family, was a passionate swimmer and rower. Just like her brothers and sisters, she often helped in her father's business. After secondary school (MULO), she worked as a telephone operator for the PTT (state telephone company) in Gorinchem and Utrecht, until she went to Pierson's.

As Joop's family was roman-catholic, Rudolf was expected to be baptized as a catholic too. After this they could marry, as they did on 7 July 1951 in Gorinchem, or "Gorkum" as people pronounce the name of the ancient little city. It was certainly a special way of renewing ties between the city and the family that carries it's name. Joop had a kitchen and bedroom on the second floor at the De Clerqstraat in Amsterdam. For some reason Rudolf was expected to stay with his parents, as the house was considered to be too small for two persons to live in. However, when Joop became pregnant and the impression arose that she was going to be single mother, it was decided that Rudolf could go and live with his wife. The cradle of Rudolf Evert Arnoldus had to stand in the kitchen. Fortunately they were able to buy a house at the Ruysdaellaan in Nieuw-Loosdrecht in 1956. Here a second boy was born, called Valentijn Arnoldus Evert. After a short and wasting illness Joop died on 9 November 1991 in the Diakonnessenziekenhuis (a hospital) in Hilversum. More about her two sons is told on the page about generation XIII.

XII-j21. Jacques
Jacques, the eldest son of Izak van Gorkom and Janna Elisabeth Klaassen (known as Jacques and Betsie, generation XI-i86), was born in Weltevreden, a suburb of Batavia in the Dutch East Indies, on 2 February 1921. Batavia is nowadays Djakarta, Indonesia. Weltevreden means "very satisfied". Like most colonials the family lived like aristocrats, having many servants. As a consequence Jacques was raised for a good deal by the baboo, the Indonesian nanny. He grew up in the tropical land of myth and mystery till he was six. In 1927 his father, warrant officer in the KNIL (Royal Netherlands-Indian Army), retired after which the family went back to the homeland.

Entrance of encampment in Weltevreden
Just some postcard from Weltevreden, dated 3 March 1911, to give
an idea of the colonial architecture of the Dutch.

It was quite a change for him. Being used to a very protective environment in a very tropical country he suddenly found himself in wet, cold and crowded little Holland. He would never really adjust. In Dordrecht he went to the H.B.S. (Hogere Burger School), more or less the highest education you could get on secundary school level. As he preferred canoeing in the vast marshes of the Biesbosch to studying arythmetics, it took him till 1940 before he graduated. By then the Second World War had broken out. As a son of a warrant officer he was supposed to go to the Koninklijke Militaire Academie (Royal Military Academy) in Breda, not far from Dordrecht, to become an officer as well. Because of the German occupation this wasn't possible anymore of course. In 1942 he travelled to Switzerland, illegally passing borders and occupied territory, but came back to ask the girl he had fallen in love with to come with him, as he intended to stay in Switzerland. By then all single men were forced by the Germans to work in German factories, good enough a reason to escape to a neutral country.

Finally in November 1942, Jacques, his future wife and their friends Piet van den Nieuwenhof (Peter) and Aly Turkstra (Alice) escaped to Switzerland. The full story of this escape is told on Jacques married the woman who had come with him, Alida Frederika Batens, in Montreux on 15 June 1943. She was born in The Hague on 14 June 1922 as the daughter of Petrus Johannes Batens and Louise Marie Sustrath. Her family called her Ada, but Jaques named her Li, because of her rather dark complexion. Their friends Piet and Alice married on the same day.

Alida Frederika Batens Jacques van Gorkom In 1959 there were four children. Li and Jack, as Jacques called himself since the war, decided to emigrate to Australia. It was the intention to go to Perth, but somehow they got stuck in a temporary lodging near Sydney. Alida called this object in which the family lived the chicken shed. It was in St. Mary's, near Penrith, nowadays a suburb of Sydney. Penrith enjoyed world fame for two weeks during the Olympics of 2000 because of Lake Penrith, where the rowing matches were held. Quite soon the writer of this page was born, nearly eleven years after the youngest of his siblings. And quite soon Jack and Li were able to buy a new home in Werrington, also near Penrith, at the dead end of an unpaved street, bordering the Australian bush. In September 1964 the family returned to the Netherlands, stayed for a year with Li's mother (Louise Sustrath) in The Hague and then moved to Delft. There Jack found a job as head of the students administration of the Technical University Delft, then called TH Delft, thanks to his excellent command of English, German and French.

Already at the beginning of the fifties Jack and Li had turned to all sorts of "occult" interests, like tarot, astrology, eastern philosophy and so on. In 1973 Jack wrote the book Tarot - leidraad voor het leven (Tarot - guideline for life), published by Servire in Wassenaar. It was rather successful as all 5000 copies of the first edition were sold. Jack died in Delft on 2 January 2000, when the new millennium was just thirty hours old. In April 2005, Li (Ada) moved to the nursing home Eben Haëzer in Amsterdam. She died on 16 June 2011—two days after her birthday—at the age of 89. More about their children you can find here.

The story of Jack's life has a remarkable parallel to the one of Albert, which can be found below on this same page. Albert too joined the Allied Forces during WW2 and afterwards he emigrated to Australia as well.

After their marriage they emigrated to Canada, but returned when Dini was expecting the first of their two children.

Due to WW2 and the German occupation, which started in Holland in May 1940, he had to abandon his studies and decided to escape the country in order to become a so-called Engelandvaarder ("One who sailed to England") and join the Allied Forces. After a long journey through Belgium, France and Spain he made it to Portugal and finally to England in November 1943, where he joined the U.S. Army Engineers Corps. Later on he became a member of the 27th Armored Infantry Battalion of General Patton's 3rd U.S. Army. In 1946 Albert was demobilized and returned to Holland to finish his studies.
