1/2. Christina Romijn
(blood-relationship 0,78 %)
* 5-6-1753 (Den Haag), relationship with "Antoni Migel" (1777), (probably:) relationship with Joannes de Fooij (1781), x Hendrik van der Kamp (Den Haag 28-9-1784) + 12-4-1829 (Den Haag)
Christina and her sister Angeniet were twins. Christina had a relationship with a man she called "Antoni Migel", from which our ancestor Catharina Michgels was born in 1778. It is likely that subsequently she had a relationship with Joannes de Fooij from which a son was born, also called Johannes. The child was christened in the Roman Catholic church in "de Oude Molstraat" in the Hague on 2-6-1782, an "onecht kind van Christina Rommeijn en Joannes de Fooij", but it died before reaching the age of one. Probably Christina expected a more stable relationship when she married Hendrik van der Kamp in 1784, but this was not to be. At their marriage the couple stated their intention to move to Arnhem, Hendrik's hometown. However, their only child, Cornelis van der Kamp was christened in The Hague, in the "Grote Kerk" on 27-3-1785. Had Hendrik already left his wife by then, or did this happen a few years later? It is certain that Christina and her two children had to rely on support from "het Burgerlijk Armbestuur" from 1791 until 1811 because Hendrik had left his family to fend for themselves. Christina was selling fruits in the street ("loopt met vrugten") to make some extra money.
For her descendants see the page on Michgels.
