BOISSEVAIN | Charles "Handelsblad" and Emily (Updated Jan. 29, 2017)

Charles Handelsblad Boissevain (1842-1927).
He was editor and publisher of Amsterdam's
Algemeen Handelsblad.
The Charlestje Family Group, headed by Charles and Emily Boissevain, is the one that my grandmother Olga, Charles's sixth child, drummed into me when I was a boy of 4 to 9 years old in Canada.

I first collected information on my Boissevain ancestors for a booklet I gave to my parents on their 50th wedding anniversary in 1982. My mother corrected it, added to it and deleted certain things that she felt improper to reveal. It is now my trusted guide to the family.

This post is built around that source and a list and numbering system begun by the late Matthijs (Thijs) Boissevain after the Boissevain family reunion a quarter-century ago in Boissevain, Manitoba, Canada. I made certain modifications in his system that are listed in the Notes at the end of this post.

The first six generations of the Boissevain Family before Charles are covered in another post.

1111316 Charles Handelsblad Boissevain (Root of Tree) was born 28 Oct 1842 in Amsterdam, son of Gideon Jérémie Boissevain and Maria van Heukelom. He was editor and part owner of the Amsterdam Algemeen Handelsblad. Charles died 05 May 1927 in Drafna (Naarden), at 84. Charles married, at 24, 27 June 1867 in Woolston (Hampshire, England) Emily Héloïse MacDonnell, 23. Emily was born 01 Jun 1844 in Dublin, daughter of Hercules Henry Graves MacDonnell and Emily Ann Moylan. Emily died 26 Jan 1931 in Blaricum, at the age of 86.

The Handelsblad reports invasion of Holland and Belgium,
May 10, 1940. "Netherlands at War with Germany." It was a
short war. After Rotterdam was obliterated, the Queen surrendered.
The 1111316 in front of Charles Handelsblad's name establishes his patrilineal "Pedigree". It shows the birth order of each person by generation.

The prefix 1111316 can be added to each of the following numbers to take them back to the Ur Boissevain in the Dordogne, Lucas Bouissavy.

Charles had 11 children by Emily Héloïse MacDonnell:
1 Charles Ernest Henri ("Eh Ha") Boissevain, born 09 May 1868 in Amsterdam.
2 Maria Boissevain, born 27 Oct 1869 in Amsterdam
3 Alfred Gideon Boissevain, born 28 Dec 1870 in Amsterdam.

8 Eugen Jan Boissevain, born 20 May 1880 in Amsterdam.
9 Petronella Johanna ("Nella") Boissevain, born 24 Dec 1881 in Amsterdam.

A Jan Maurits Boissevain
, born the 10th child on 05 Feb 1883 in Amsterdam. Under the numbering system used here, in families with more than 9 children, the 10th child is numbered "A", the 11th is numbered "B" and so on. This keeps the numbering to one column per generation while retaining the ability to sort on that column.
B Catharina Josephina (“Teau”) Boissevain was born the 11th child on 23 Jan 1885 in Amsterdam.

Notes

1. This is what genealogists call a Family Group, one of the two main organizational devices, the other being the Pedigree. (The Pedigree starts with a person today and works backward through parents and grandparents.) 
2. I have attempted to pursue accepted genealogical notation and principles, updated to minimize Roman numerals, which are impossible (or at best inconvenient and difficult) to sort. 
3. Numbering System. The late Matthijs (Thijs) Boissevain after the Boissevain family reunion a quarter-century ago in Boissevain, Manitoba, Canada. He used the Henry Numbering System for keeping track of individuals in Family Groups. I have modified the Henry system slightly so that it is both simple and sortable, using 1-9 for the first nine children and then using the alphabet for the next 26 children. This eliminates the need for periods between numbers at least for families with no more than 35 children in a single generation, which in a monogamous family is a fair bet.
4. Modifications. I have also modified the list prepared in favor of making the numbering system sortable by computer. I have also (a) updated Thijs's list where I have better or newer information, (b)  trimmed some duplicative words,
5. Dates. I have used European format for dates, i.e., dd-mmm (three-character, no period)-yyyy, following genealogical convention. 
6. Order of Surnames. I have also placed maiden names before married names as in Anglo-Saxon (as opposed to Dutch and Spanish) tradition.
7. Non-Patriarchal. I have included both men and women in the numbering system.numbering.
8. Dropped Prefixes. After six generations  I have dropped the prefix 1111316 identifying Charles, for simplicity.
9. Weighted to More Ancient Ancestors. Since the older generations are the most valued, with more descendants, I have made taken most pains to be inclusive about sources for these individuals. I have tried to be brief about living people, who can speak for themselves.
