Notes for Arij Korenwinder
The facts surrounding Arij Koornwinder are slim to say the least.  We know he was born in Hazerswoude in 1756, the same birth year as Wolfgang Amadeau Mozart to give you some perspective on the times.   But unlike Mozart, it does not seem that Arij distinguished himself since there are very few records available about him.

We know he married Neeltje Kroon on March 3, 1780, on a cold (4°C) and windy day in Woubrugge.  The marriage probably was more out of necessity rather than desire, since their daughter Johanna arrived a mere 3 months later, in June  of 1780.  Four more children followed over the next 10 years, of which one died at a young age.

There is no record of Arij's profession or the date of his death.  Neeltje's father, Abraham Kroon, ran one of the mills in Woubrugge and many of his brothers and sons also worked in the mills.  Whether Arij joined the family business is unknown but he did move to Woubrugge after his marriage since we know that Johanna and all her siblings were born in Woubrugge.
