|Antonia was born
probably at Bloemstraat 181 in the colourful Jordaan district. She was named after an older sister who died approx 9 months earlier.
She spent, at least, the first few years of her life lving at Bloemstraat 181 but by the time her younger brother, Wilhelmus Johannes was born in 1879, the family had moved down the street to Bloemstraat 86. When she was 9 years old, the family was still living at the same address.
Location of Bloemstraat 181 and 86.

|Antonia married Jacobus Johannes Lambertus
Rault on 24 October 1894 in Amsterdam. Antonia had no occupation, Jacobus’
years of age and worked as a Butcher.|
The witnesses to the marriage included Willem Hendrik Mulder (stated to be an uncle of Antonia, another Carpenter) and Antonius Mattheus Hendriks who was married to Antonia's aunt, Antonia Maria Roosen (born 1864 in Harderwijk).
|Jacobus was born in Amsterdam at Tweedebinnendwarsstraat 389 and his parents were Johannes Cornelis Casparus Rault and Wilhelmina Johanna Vontijn/Fontijn|
After their marriage, Antonia and Jacobus lived in more than 16 different homes in Amsterdam between 1894 and 1915 but it is not known why they moved so often. It seems that they may have lived with a number of family members - aunts and uncles, so maybe they had very little money.
Some of the Amsterdam houses they lived in are noted below. There were quite few others!
When their first child, Maria Helena Johanna was born in 1895, they were living at Warmoesstraat 17[16,1]. Jacobus occupation was stated as Butcher and Antonia's occupation was stated as Civil Servant (Ambtenaar).
When Geertruida Theodora Maria was born in 1896, they were living at Spuistraat 1 and Jacobus occupation was stated as In service (Bediende). This could mean he was working as a Servant, Waiter or other kind of service job. Now Antonia has no job. In 1898, they were living at Dirk van Hasfeltsteeg 57[20,21]. In January 1899, Jacobus is temporarily unemployed.
By May 1900, Jacobus was working as an Undertaker's Assistant (Aanspreker) and the family lived at Langestraat 88. Perhaps thi is the start of his long term career? In 1902 they were living at Zeedijk 17. In December 1903 they were living at Prins Hendrikkade 58[26,32].
In 1903, Jacobus declared the death of an aunt (AGJ Rault) and stated his occupation as an Undertaker's Assistant. Again in 1907, he declared the death of another aunt (HCC Rault) and again in 1911, another aunt (AGJ Rault) and in each case he stated his occupation as Undertaker's Assistant[10,11].
From AGJ Rault death certificate
For one year from September 1907, they lived at the Korte Lijnbaansteeg 4 - probably with Antonia's father and mother. From February 1911 they lived at Warmoesstraat 25 and later moved to Warmoesstraat 20 in July 1915 where they stayed for another 5 years. Antonia may have operated a shop in the Warmoesstraat 20, Amsterdam[3,4]. At least during their last 10 years living in Amsterdam, they were reasonably settled.
Later he may have worked as a qualified Undertaker.
After the death of Antonia's father, Peterus Theodorus in June 1913, Antonia's mother, Geertruida Paulina Philippina Mulder, lived with the Rault family.
In June 1920, Antonia, Jacobus and 3 children moved to Heiloo a small town lying south of Alkmaar. It is not clear if her mother moved to Heiloo also but her death is recorded in Amsterdam.
The only record found in Heiloo is an entry for the family in the Heiloo Bevolkingsregister (inhabitant's register) for 1921-1936. The entry was made in June 1923. Jacobus' occupation is stated as a Trader in Petroleum. The family members recorded in this register are Jacobus, Antonia and the children Maria Helena Johanna, Josephina Geertruida Maria and Cornelis Theodorus Jacobus.
From the Heiloo Bevolkingsregister 1921-1936
Jacobus died in Heiloo on 10 July 1936 aged 64 years[13,14].
Shortly after, in August 1936, Antonia is recorded as moving to Bergen (just north of Alkmaar). This move is also recorded in her Amsterdam Persoonenkaart (inhabitant's register) which further states that she lived at Kogendijk 49 in Bergen with her daughter Josephina and her family.
This reference also tells us that she moved from Bergen back to Amsterdam in June 1943 and lived with her brother, Theodorus Wilhelmus Carolus Roosen, at Frederik Hendrikstraat 108 (3rd floor). She may not have stayed very long with Theo since she moved to Alkmaar and died there on 19 May 1944.

|It is believed that
Jacobus had (at least) 9 children:-
From Maria Helena's birth certificate
From Geetruida's death certificate
After Nicolaas married Josephina, he gained his own Bevolkingsregisters entry in the same period. This reference notes 4 children:-
The family is noted as being of the Roman Catholic faith and are living at Kogendijk 49. No death dates are provided in this reference.
From reference 30. Note: the family name has one 'a' scrubbed out inconsistently.
