Henderikus never married and worked as a Carpentry Joiner[3] most likely with his father. It is likely that he lived all of his life in Harderwijk.

During the period 1855-1862, he was noted as living with his mother and two siblings Josephus Eligius and Wilhelmina in the Luttekepoortstraat[6].  

In 1863, Henderikus was noted as a witness to the declaration of the birth of Antonius Wilhelmus Hendrikus Roosen.  Henderikus' occupation was noted as Cabinetmaker[5].  

In the period 1862-1870 he wass noted as the Head of the household[7]. This reference recorded his occupation as Carpentry Joiner.  His sister Wilhelmina and brother Josephus Eligius (now apparently separated from Sophia Soomer) were also living with him.

He died at his home in the Luttekepoortstraat[3] – most likely number 332, which he would have assumed after his father's death.  He was only 38 years of age.  His death was registered by his younger brother, Josephus Eligius.
