|Christina van Loveren
born circa 1671, Amsterdam 1
died 1730 2
will dated 11 February 1730 3
| She is possibly the Christina who was baptised on 6th June 1673 in the|
Oude Kerk Amsterdam, the child of Jan Juriaansz and Annetje Jans. This
possibility is given some weight by the fact that her aunt, named as Sara
Jurriaansz, assisted her at the ondertrouw ceremony in 1694.
When she registered her intention to marry, in the Amsterdam Ondertrouw
register, dated 12th Novmeber 1694, she declared that she was 21 years old
and that her parents were dead. When she made her will in July 1713 she
was stated to be 38 years old, a discrepancy of 2 years.
(My thanks to Bernard de Vries for copies of the baptism, marriage and
ondertrouw records and for bringing them to my attention).
In their joint will of 1713 she and her husband, Willem van Zijl, bequeathed to
Hendrik Elbertsz, infant son of the deceased Johanna Cok and Gerrit Elbertsz,
a share in their estate equal to those of their children, stating that they did
this as grandfather and grandmother.
Her Deceased Estate Accounts are dated 1730. There is an item of
burial expenses to Hendrik Nusser dated 19th October 1730.

Notes: She is not mentioned in the Estate Accounts
drawn up in 1732 after her mother's death, and since
only 8 children are mentioned in her father's Estate
Accounts of 1728, all 8 of whom are named in the later
1730, accounts, she presumably died before the year
1726 without leaving any heirs.
