The first spouse of Petrus Joannes, Maria Catharina Claeys was born in Kaprijke on 4 September 1800.

In 1830 the address of this couple was listed in the population registers as Balgerhoekstraat,124 with two farm-hands and two maids; in 1846 their address was Balgerhoekstraat, 159 and in 1866 it was Balgerhoekstraat,31.

Petrus Joannes didn't go looking very far for his bride.  In the figure below we show the double relationship: his grandmothers were the sisters of her grandfathers.
