xx Assenede 28/7/1749 Joanna De Sutter
Assenede 20/6/1775

He was named after his grandfather who was also his godfather.  His godmother was Barbara Pieters, married to his uncle, Franciscus Sabo. He married in Assenede on 2 May 1733.  His bride was Francisca Mattheeuws, the daughter of Jacobus Mattheeuws and Pieternelle Van Ypre.  She was also the widow with 3 sons of Jan Vandevelde.

She gave him one daughter.  She died on 31/5/1749 and was buried with a medium religious service.  About two months after her death, on 28/7/1749, Henri remarried.  His new bride was Joanna De Sutter.

They lived on a farm which was the property of Master daene ("jonckheer daene") and the heirs of Mister Colins, lawyer ("dhoirs van den heer avocaet Colins").

While married to Henricus, Joanna, together with her brother Lieven sold their part

"... in a farm with a house and a barn with the green and the dry wood on it and with about 900 rods of land belonging to it and divided into 2 parcels, one situated next to the other in the aforementioned city of Assenede, Danckaertseecke district... and also another field of approximately 900 rods situated in the parish of Oosteecloo... altogether for the sum of 200 pounds."
"... in een behuysde en beschuerde hofstede met de groene en droge cathyllen daer op staende alsmede ontrent de drij gemeten lants daer mede gaende, in 2 stucken d'een aen d'ander gestaen ende geleghen binnen de voorseyde stede van Assenede, wijck van Danckaertseecke... ende nogh ontrent de 3 gemeten geleghen op de prochie van Oosteecloo... t'saemen voor en omme de somme van 200 ponden."

In fact "groene en drogen cathyllen" meant all the fixed accessories such as hedgerows, fences, enclosures and the like which were on the farm and never sold separately.  That didn't include the fruit trees.  Neither did it include the poplars one saw on so many farms until fairly recently.  These had to be lopped and otherwise maintained by the tenant but the timber was the property of the owner of the farm.

Hendrik had 2 horses, 4 cows, 2 yearlings, one calf and 2 pigs.  A man and a cowherd helped him on the farm where he grew wheat, oats, buckwheat, barley, peas, linseed, beets, clover and potatoes.

Hendrik died in Assenede, aged 73 on 20/6/1775.  His estate reckonings closed on a positive balance of 430 pounds.

Two months after his death, on 29 August 1775 Joanna remarried with Ambrosius Mattheeuws, the son of Guillelmus Mattheeuws and Martina Dhondt.  He was born there on 7/12/1743.  Ambrosius' brother Joannes and Petronella No, Joanna's stepdaughter were the witnesses.  Perhaps Joannes, the best man, was impressed with the No family because 5 years later he married Joanna's daughter, Caroline No.

Ambrosius died in Assenede on 2/12/1794.
