The descendants of Jan Cornellis and Stijnje Jelles.

I. Cornelis [*Unknown] married to [*Unknown] had a son with the name Jan Cornellis.

A. Son Jan Cornel(l)is/Knellis/Kornellis, coming from the town Meedhuizen (after 1811 part of the municipality Delfzijl), province Groningen, Netherlands, married on November 15, 1739 in Opwierde, since 1811 part of the municipality Appingedam, province Groningen, Stijnje or Stinje Jelles, coming from Opwierde; they lived in Meedhuizen as (little) farmers. Stijntje was baptized on September 26, 1717 in the Slochteren church, "as daughter of the married people Jelte Rolefs and Avcke Foppes".

[*Note A.G.: Her first name "Avcke" is an old Dutch word for "Afke". Another daughter Jacobje (Jelles/Jellis) of this couple was baptized in Slochteren, province Groningen, on November(?) 16, 1711 and married on December 1, 1733 in the town Farmsum, province Groningen, to Jacob Willems; Jacobje Jellis and spouse Jacob Willems baptized on August 26, 1742 in Farmsum a son Willem (Jacobs), a full cousin of the children of Jan Cornelis and Stijnje Jelles. Willem Jacobs was, with his later wife Geertje/Grietje Sijmens, a witness at the marriage on May 15, 1780 in Wagenborgen, province Groningen, of his full cousin Afke Jans and Aike Geerts and signed also their marriage contract].

In the Meedhuizen churchbooks is recorded "that Jan Cornellijs made his confession of faith on March 17, 1726 after good education", that he "was elected on January 1, 1733 as deacon in the place of the retiring book-keeper" and reelected on April 23, 1747. In those church-books is also listed that "Stijnje Jelles is accepted on November 29, 1748 after education as member [*of the church]", nine years after her marriage. Jan Cornelis must be born before 1706 and he died in October 1761; he was buried on October 16, 1761 in Meedhuizen — according the Meedhuizen church cashbook 1754-1827 — 12 days after the birth of his last daughter Trintie and 28 days before her funeral). His widow Stijnje Jelles remarried on May 13, 1764 as "widow of Jan Cornellijs" in the Meedhuizen church Sijpke Jans, "coming from Siddeburen", province Groningen. Stijnje Jelles was buried on November 7, 1768, seven years after her first spouse Jan Cornelis. As far is to be researched Stijnje's second marriage with Sijpke Jans stayed childless: according to the Meedhuizen church books "a son Jan of the parent Sijpke Jans was baptized in the church on October 14, 1764", probably a son coming from Sijpke's former marriage. [*Note A.G.: in the corresponding, baptizing church book of Meedhuizen was even spoken about "an adult little(??) son Jan of father Sijpke Jans"].

A. The children of Jan Cornellis and Stijnje/Stinje Jelles:

1. Son Knellis/Kornelis/Cornelis, baptized October 15, 1741 in Meedhuizen (as "son of the married couple Jan Knellijs and Stijnje Jeltes".

2. Son Jelle (Jans), baptized December 22, 1743 in the Meedhuizen church as son of Jan Knellis and Stijnje Jelles. He probably died before 1748.

3. Daughter Aefke, baptized December 19, 1745 in the Meedhuizen church, a child of Jan Cornelis and Stijnje Jelles; she must have died in infancy before 1750 because of the baptizing on May 17, 1750 of their second daughter Aafke.

4. Son Jelle (Jans), born between January 1 and April 14, 1748, baptized on April 14, 1748 in the Meedhuizen church as son of Jan Cornellis and Stinje Jelles.

6. Daughter Anje (Jans), baptized in the Meedhuizen church on May 1, 1752 as daughter of Jan Cornellis and Stinje Jelles.

7. Son Jan (Jans), baptized March 17, 1754 in the Meedhuizen church as son of Jan Cornellis and Stinje Jelles.

8. Daughter Trinje (Jans), baptized September 5, 1756 in the Meedhuizen church as daughter of Jan Cornellis and Stijnie Jelles. According to the cash-book of the Meedhuizen deacons "this child of Jan Knellijs was buried September 24, 1756".

9. Daughter Aaltje/Aaltin (Jans), baptized January 29, 1758 in Meedhuizen.

10. Daughter Trintie (Jans), baptized on October 4, 1761 in the Meedhuizen church as daughter of Jan Kornellis and Stijnje(?) Jelles. The cashbooks of the Meedhuizen church recorded that "a child [*Trintie] of Jan Knellis was buried on November 13, 1861 in Meedhuizen", 28 days after the funeral of her father, Jan Cornelis.

A1. Cornel(l)is/Knellis/Kornelis/Kornellis Jans married April 4,1763 in Meedhuizen Griete Freeks, both coming from Meedhuizen. [*Note A.G.: According the Meedhuizen church cashbook 1754-1827, in which was recorded that Cornelis Jans and wife Grietje Freeks buried at least seven(!) of their children — the last time a little son on March 28, 1777 — this couple must have had at the end eight children. Only their last daughter Stintie (or Stijntje) Cornelis stayed alive, till she (probably) also died on September 16, 1809 in Meedhuizen, unmarried, at age of 35 years. Those losses must have been very tragic to this married couple!].

A1a. Daughter Stinje (Cornelis), baptized on December 4, 1763 in Meedhuizen. She was buried on December 16, 1763 in Meedhuizen, as it was recorded in a cashbook of the Meedhuizen deacons when they noted the income of 6 stivers and 4 doits "by Kornelis Jans when he buried that day his daughter".

A1b. Son Jan (Cornelis), baptized January 1, 1765 in Meedhuizen. Probably buried on December 19, 1766 in Meedhuizen.

A1c. An unknown child, who was buried on September 23, 1768? [*Note A.G.: Maybe the date of the burial of a child of Jan Knellis on December 19, 1766 in the cashbook of the Meedhuizen church accords the funeral of his son Jan (baptized January 1, 1765) and this unknown child was buried later, like on September 23, 1768???].

A1d. Daughter Aallie or Altin (Cornelis), baptized January 3, 1768 in Meedhuizen. Probably she was buried on October 19, 1769, according the Meedhuizen church cashbook 1754-1827.

A1d. An unknown child, baptizing date is unknown; probably buried on September 28, 1770 in Meedhuizen, as was recorded in the cashbook of the Meedhuizen church.

A1e. Daughter Stijnje (Cornelis), baptized February(?) 16, 1772 in Meedhuizen. Probably she is buried on August 10, 1774 in Meedhuizen.

A1f. Daughter Stintie (or Stijntje) (Cornelis), baptized on January 22, 1775 in the Meedhuizen church [*Note A.G.: In the Meedhuizen church book is recorded that "on September 16, 1809 Stientje Kornelis died in Meedhuizen, about 35 years old, unmarried". Probably the same woman as the before-said Stijntje Cornelis]. The Meedhuizen church cashbook noted also that "on September 19, 1809 they recieved 59 stivers while Stijntije Kornellis was buried that day".

A1g. An unknown son, baptizing date and place unknown, buried in Meedhuizen as "the Little Son of Knellis Jans and Griete Freeks" on March 28, 1777, according the income of 7 stivers as it was noted in the Meedhuizen church cash-book 1754-1827.

[*Note A.G.: Maybe Stijntje Cornelis took care of her parents and their little farm(?) — maybe even the farm of her grandparents? — while In the before-said church cashbook was also recorded that "on April 27 and May 16, 1810 Derk Remkes, Aaltien Eilders, Grietien Jans and Dyntie Poppes paid the church the so-called "boelpenningen" - what means "money from an auction" — of [*the just deceased] Stijntien Kornelys", to a total sum of 38 guilders and 22 stivers (or 39 guilders and 2 stivers.) While in the same cashbook also was recorderd that "Korneelis Jans and wife [*Griete Freeks?] paid on January 19, 1809 (the Meedhuizen deacons) also his "boelpenningen" of 85 guilders, 15 stivers and 5 doits" this public auction probably must be dated in the end of 1808, almost a year before the later death of Stijntje Cornelis, maybe while she was already too ill to continue her management of the (little) Cornelis Jans farm?? Her father was at that time 67 years old and maybe sold the farm by this age?].

In the marriage contract of her sister Afke Jans with her bridegroom Eike Geerts in 1780 is written that "the right of representations (if both marrying people will die without children) will go to the children of the married couple Anje Jans and Jan Jans".

Father Jan Jans Buur survived by his age of 83 years all his four children and wife Anje Jans. [*Note A.G.: The Dutch source "NGV computergenealogy" gives as birthdate of Jan Jans Buur May 6, 1746, but that doesn't fit with his age of 83 at his death year 1826].

[*Note A.G.: Another source gave as birth year 1743]. At this marriage Hindrik Berends (Bult) was the widower of Grietje or Grietie Reintjes or Reinties (coming from Weiwerd, widow of Hindrik Roelfs) with who Hindrik Berends was married since October 16, 1774 in Weiwerd; [1m]Grietje/Grietie Reintjes/Reinties died on May 23, 1784 and was buried in Weiwerd, 5 days later. [After her death the inventory of their (im)movables was registered on October 22, 1785 according "a farmstead with 13½ "deimpt, beklemd" land [*= about 6¾ hectare], 2 old horses, 4 cows, 4 young cows, 10 sheeps, 2 pigs, 2 sold foals and all the other goods"]. Hindrik and [1m]Grietje had at least the next children:

[1m1]. Son Jan (Hindriks Bult), born January(?) 11, 1778, baptized on January 25, 1778 in the Weiwerd church; "as son of Hindrik Beerends Bult and wife Grietje Reintjes"; he married October 25, 1816 in Delfzijl (certificate number s2) as laborer (and later also farmer) the maid-servant Tietje Kornelis Stol(te), born August 21, 1791 in ... as daughter of [*the deceased?] Cornelis Roelfs and the female farmer Geertruid Hindriks. [*Note A.G.: To confuse us, be aware that the father Hindrik Berends Bult had two different sons, both of which were named Jan Hindriks Bult! In my opinion the first son Jan Hindriks Bult, born in 1778 in Weiwerd, was called to the first spouse of Grietje Reintjes, named Hindrik Roelfs; the second son Jan Hindriks Bult, born 12 years later in 1790 in Weiwerd, must be called to the second spouse of Grietje Reintjes, named with the same first name Hindrik (Be(e)ends Bult) as her first spouse! Besides that there was also a marriage on March 1, 1893 in Termunten (certificate number 3) of Kornelis Bult, son of farmer Hindrik Jans Bult and wife Trijntje Hindriks Bons and grandson of Jan Hindriks Bult and wife Tietje Kornelis Stol(te) with his bride Geertruida Meedema, daughter of the farmer Jan Klaassens Medema and his wife Grietje Jans Bult and also granddaughter of Jan Hindriks Bult and wife Tietje Kornelis Stol(te)]. Jan Hindriks Bult and Tietje Kornelis Stol had at least the next two children:

[1m1a]. Hindrik Jans Bult, born about 1817 in Wagenborgen; later part of the municipality Termunten; married April 6, 1844 as a farmer in Termunten (certificate number 3) Trijntje Hindriks Bons, born about 1819 in Oterdum, municipality Termunten(?), province Groningen, as daughter of Hindrik Jans Bons and Hilke Jans Hijbels. This couple had at least four children. [*Note A.G.: like before said, his grandson Kornelis Bult married in 1893 in Termunten granddaughter Geertruida Meedema of his sister Grietje Jans (Bult) Medema].

[1m1b] Grietje Jans Bult, born October 4, 1825 in Wagenborgen "as daughter of farmer Jan Hindriks Bult and Tietje Kornelis Stol(te)"; she married on June 2, 1843 in Delfzijl (certificate number 24) the farmers help (and later farmer) Jan Klaassens Me(e)dema, born on March 11, 1810 in Meedhuizen as son of the farmers Klaas Migchiels Medema and Anje Luurts. This couple had at least five sons and three daughters.[*Note A.G.: see also the before said note!].

Aaltje Jans died March 26, 1810 in Weiwerd, "leaving a son and three daughters", according the Weiwerd church-books. The death of her spouse Hindrik Berends in Weiwerd was noted on Thursday April 2, 1829 in the town hall of Delfzijl: "On April 2, 1829 Hindrik Berends Bult was deceased in the house number 55 in Weiwerd, 77 years old, farmer of profession, living in Weiwerd, son of the deceased Berend Jans, by life laborer, and of Geeske Hindriks, have lived on the Meeden, born in Stedum(?) [*province Groningen], widower of Aaltje Jans, leaving five children". [*Note A.G.: Talking about those five children: Hindrik Berends Bult had one son Jan Hindriks Bult from his first wife Grietje Reintjes and four from his second wife Aaltje Jans, with for the second time(!) also a son named Jan Hindriks Bult see my notes before!]. By the French law in 1811 Hindrik Be(e)rends must have chosen the surname Bult. They had four children:

A9a. Jan Hindriks Bult, born March 14, 1790 in Weiwerd "as son of Hindrik Berends Bult and Aaltje Jans"; he married December 15, 1814 in Delfzijl (certificate number 23) Lisabeth Frederiks Korf(f),, born February 12, 1792 in ... as daughter of the farmer Frederik Arends Korf and Marieke Stoffers. Lisabeth Frederiks Korf(f) must have died before August 1831. Her widow Jan Hindriks remarried August 11, 1831 in Delfzijl (certificate number 13) "as land user" Albertjen Meinderts Spanjer, born January 9, 1803 in Nieuwolda, as daughter of the laborer Meinder(t) Beerends Spanjer and Epke Tiddes, legalizing also one former born child (*their daughter Epke Bult). [*Note A.G.: In the marriage certificate of his daughter Maria in August 1842 is noted that "her father Jan Hindriks Bult was a farmer". However, just a month later, during the marriage of his son Fredrik Jans Bult in September 1842, the profession of father Jan Hindriks Bult was noted "as laborer". It seemed that in this month father Jan Hindriks Bult lost his (little?) farmstead?? The loss of his farmstead in those agricultural disasterous years 1842-1846 could be caused by the very bad situation of the Groningen farmers by human deseases like cholera, a severe cow desease and the upcoming and heavily destructive "potato decease"]. From the both marriages were born the following children (*Hindrik Berends Bult's first five children came from his first marriage):
