Occupation: teacher at a primary school, "koster" and "voorzanger" in Loosduinen. He had 25 children from his three marriages. His first wife, Margrieta de Zoete (who was probably related to him) died at the age of 40 from paralysis of the gullet. She and Hendrik had three children (not mentioned here). His second wife, our ancestor Maria van der Elst died at the age of 53 from a stroke. She and Hendrik had fifteen children, at least eight of whom died very young. Hendrik and Maria Blok had another seven children (not mentioned here). Hendrik died at the age of 88.

2. Willem de Zoete
* ? + ?
This Willem, teacher at a primary school in Benschop, was probably Hendrik's brother. In Hendrik's two wills, Willem is named as guardian for Hendrik's children in case of their parents' death. This never became necessary because Hendrik reached a considerable age.
