I posted about my brick wall ancestor Naatje Foppen (or Johanna Magdalena Foppen) before. A quick summary of what I know:
Naatje and her twin sister were born on 29 July 1792 in Naarden, and she was baptized Johanna Magdalena on 22 August 1792. She was born out of wedlock. Her mother was Magdalena Foppen. Her father's name was listed: Lucas Castisch. But the first name Lucas was striked through, and the last name Castisch cannot be found anywhere.
Naatje never married, but had two sons, Johannes (my ancestor) in 1815 and Jacob (who died in infancy) in 1828. Nothing is known about the father(s) of the boys.
Naatje died in 1864 in Naarden. As far as I know she spent her whole life in Naarden.
I did not find anything else on Naatje's mother or sister.
Recently scans of the church books of Naarden became available online. I had seen it many years ago, but I only made notes of Naatje's baptism. Time for another look. Here is the baptism entry:
Transcription: Maria Rosa & Johanna Magdelena, geboren [=born] 29 Julij, gedoopt [=baptized] 22 Augustus, [father]
Lucas Castisch, [mother] Magdelena Foppers, Spurius [=out of wedlock].
I could not find Magdalena's baptism or burial, and I could not find anything else about Maria Rosa.
I did see a few others with the name Foppen in Naarden. The most interesting one is Maria Francisca Foppen, who was married to Hendrik Rijnders. They had a daughter named Maria Rosa, the same name as Naatje's twin sister! The name Maria Rosa is not that common, so chances are that Maria Francisca is related!
Hendrik and Maria Francisca married in Naarden, in 1779:
Summary: Henderik Reijnders, born in Heteren, a soldier stationed in Naarden, and Fransiska Foffer, born in Bergen op den Soom [Bergen op Zoom], now living in Naarden, married in Naarden on 12 September 1779.
Unfortunately I have been unable to find [Maria] Francisca in Bergen op Zoom, or Hendrik in Heteren, so far.
To be continued, I assume.
