Antonia was born at her parents' home at the Vischmarkt 653 on 9 June
1846 and was baptised on the same day at the Harderwijk Roman Catholic
Church in Harderwijk.
Her godparent was her cousin, Anna Antonia Roosen
(born 1832). Anna was just 16 years old herself but 16 years was
a mature age in those days[1,2].
Antonia grew up and was educated in
Harderwijk as part of the small but closely knit Catholic
population. Antonia was not yet 5 years old when her mother died
in January 1851.
In the period before 1870, Antonia lived with
her older sister, Alijda Bernarda Roosen who was married to Wilhelmus Johannes Zikking, at their house in the Hondengaatstraat in the centre of Harderwijk.

Antonia Maria's baptism entry
Shortly before 1871, Antonia left Harderwijk for Amsterdam. She may have met up with her aunt, Maria Sebilla Roosen or brother, Peterus Theodorus Roosen
and possibly lived with him at Bloemstraat 86 but in any case, not long
after arriving there, she met her future husband. She worked as a
Domestic Servant at the time.
Antonius Mattheus Hendriks
Antonius was born on 7 August 1841 in Amersfoort, Utrect, NL. His
parents were Hermanus Hendriks and Cornelia Antonia van Daal.
from Antonius Mattheus Hendriks birth certificate
Antonius had been married twice before he met Antonia Maria
His first marriage was with Maria Adriana Putman on 9
June 1869 in Amersfoort. With Maria Putman, Antonius had one
son, Hermanus Jacobus Hendriks, born 1 July 1870. Hermanus
died on 5 September 1871 aged just 1 year. Maria Putman died on 8 January 1872 in
Amersfoort[9,12]. During their marriage, Antonius worked as a Stucco Renderer (Stucadoor).
Antonius was not long a widower. After only 7 months, he married Wilhelmina van Leunen on 8 August 1872 in Amsterdam. The marriage certificate states that Antonius resided in Amesfoort.
Presumably, Antonius travelled to Amsterdam early in 1872 to meet and
marry Wilhelmina but Ref 12 records that he officially advised the
Amersfoort authorities only on 9 September 1872 and there is no
reference to his second marriage. Wilhelmina lived and worked as
a Domestic Servant in Amsterdam at the time of the marriage and Antonius plied his trade as a Stucco Renderer.
How did they meet, was it arranged? Were her domestic duties in
the house where Antonius lived? Wilhelmina was born on 4 January
1839 at her parent's house at Kerkstraat near Spiegelstraat 302 in
Amsterdam. Her parents were Hermanus van Leunen and Maria
Nieuwenhuijzen. Wilhelmina died on 2 November 1874. She and Antonius were living at Haarlemmerdijk 439 at the time.
Antonia Maria Roosen & Antonius Mattheus Hendriks In Amsterdam
Third time around for Antonius - he and Antonia met and were married on
5 August 1875 in Amsterdam.
Their Banns were announced on 25 July and
1 August. Antonia's older brother, Peterus Theodorus Roosen was one of the witnesses.
Antonia worked as a Domestic Servant and Antonius continued to work as a Stucco Renderer.
from Antonia Maria's marriage certificate
From July 1875 until July 1877,
Antonia and Antonius lived at Noorderstraat 11 and their first child,
Antonius Mattheus was born there[15,16].
From February 1878 until September 1879, they lived at Bloemstraat 58, the house of Antonia's brother Peterus Theodorus Roosen and their second child, Geertruida Cornelia Antonia Hendriks was born there[17,18].
Between September 1880 and November 1886, they lived at Lange
Leidsedwaarsstraat 120 and their last four children were all born there[19,20,21,22].
Around June 1888, the family moved to Da Costakade 87 but stayed only
approximately 1 year before moving back to Amersfoort. They were
entered into the Amersfoort Inhabitants Register on 26 June 1889[23,24].
Antonius and Antonia Maria ca 1892
Throughout the period 1880 through to 1889, Antonius stated his occupation as Stucco Renderer but it is believed that at the Lange Leidsedwaarsstraat address, Antonius and Antonia may have operated a small Pub (public house) as an annex to the ground-floor cafe (now a Tex-Mex restaurant).

This was, of course, just a "return home" for Antonius.
Amersfoort is located between Amsterdam and Harderwijk but for Antonia,
most of her relations had by then left Harderwijk. All the children
moved with them. Antonius was a Publican in Amersfoort and Antonia was a Shopkeeper.
