B-I-a <A-III-b in Some Herwijnen Residents> HEIJMAN GIJSBERTS [ROSA], probably born in Herwijnen circa 1580-85, was the son of Gijsbert Goerts [Roosa/Rosa] and Maria (Marije) Alerts <A-II-a>. He was still living in 1637, but had died before 1651. Heijman was married to IJken (Eijke) Jan Kuijstendr of Andel, North Brabant, Netherlands.

Most of their children and their descendants remained in Andel for generations. For a modern day map of Andel it's vicinity click here.

His children, presumably by Eijke Jans Kuijsten:

[Recorded by] Schepenen (Bank of Tuil) Goirt Janssoon & [Abraham Gijsbertsz] Roosa:

(Judicial Archive of Tuil, # 1249, folio 28. Translated by Marco Schelling.) Note: from this record it is not certain that Gijsbert Heijmonsz was a Rosa, but the likelihood seems strong.
Her brother, Jan Heijmanszoon Rosa, was made guardian of Anneke's children.
Anneke was married to JOOST ASSWERENSSE (Sweers) DE COCK, born circa 1613, died before 27 Jun 1693, widower of ADRIAENTGEN WILLEMS DE POORTER, born circa 1613-20. (GTMWB, 1999, no. 4, p. 246.)
JOOST SWEEREN DE COCK, is mentioned as a neighboring property owner in the polder "Kammet" on 2 Jan 1664, 10 Mar 1666, and 1 Nov 1666. (Judicial Archives at Heusden: Woudrichem R407.) He is again so mentioned on 1 Jan 1669 (Judicial Archives at Heusden: Woudrichen R406); on 24 Mar 1683 and 7 Jan 1695 (Judicial Archives: Andel R7). The "Kammet" is located within the larger polder of "Opperste" in the eastern part of Andel. This same property is mentioned on 27 Jun 1693 when it is stated that JOOST SWEERE DE COCK, in his life schout of Wijk, owed a rent of 6 guilders, yearly, on a piece of property in Andel, at which time his children signed a letter in which they abandon this land and leave it to the village of Andel. WILLEM JOOSTEN DE KOCK is mentioned as his eldest son. The rent had been paid to 1690. After this the village had leased the property. (Archives of the Geestelijk Kantoor Delft kept at Den Haag, inv. No. 600.)
JOOST SWEEREN DE COCK, schout of Wijck, purchased on 27 Jan 1668 some ground in Andel from JAN HEIJMANSZ. ROSA, for the amount of 125 guilders. (Judicial Archives at Heusden: Woudrichen R407.) This land located in the "Sint Rombouts Polder", was located in the north-western part of the village, next to Giessen. This same property was sold by JOOST DE KOCK, schout of Wijck on 9 Dec 1676 to JAN BASTIAENSZ. CRULLART for 77 guilders, paid. (Judicial Archives at Heusden: Andel R7)
