This is the following information I have obtained.. please let me know if you are connected or have any further information.

Starting from my Grandparents - focusing on my grandfather side - being the KWANTEN family blood line.

Nicholaas Marie Kwanten
Born 1909 in Limburg Netherlands
Died 1991 in Sydney Australia

Married. Henriette Maria Agnes Smits 1917-2007 and had 7 Childen who all reside in Australia, they are:

Andrew, Edward, Elbert, John, Nicholas, Henrietta, Mary.

Nicholaas Marie Kwantens parents were Pieter Jan Hubert Kwanten 1871 - ? born in Horst, Dongen, Noord-Braben, Netherlands who married Henrica Hermina Thijssen ? - ? born in Boxmeer, Noord-Brabent, Netherlands - married in Boxmeer, Noord-brabant, Netherlands on 4/9/1900. Nicholaas had a brother called Jan Hendrick Herman Kwanten 10/07/1901 - ? in Gennep, Limburg, Netherlands.

Pieter Jan Hubert Kwanten's parents were Jan Kwanten ? - ? birth and death (unknown) who married Antonetta Huberta Drissen ? - ? birth and death (Unknown). Pieter had a brother called Michiel Martin Kwanten 1869-1930 born in Horst, Dongen. Noord-Brabent, Natherlands and died in Nijmegen, Gelderland, Netherlands. Michiel Martin Kwanten was married to Anna Maria Wilhelmia van de Ven who died in 1949.

Jan Kwanten's parents are unknown and where the link becomes unclear - which is what I am trying to locate.


Further to this - If you follow Henrica Hermina Thijssen's side of the family (she was married to Pieter Jan Hubert Kwanten) her father was Henricus Johannes Thijssen ? - 1912 - he died in Boxmeer, Noord-Brabant and Mother Theodora Sibilla Hombergen ? - 1881 she died in Boxmeer, Noord-Brabant. They both had Children named Anna Theodora who died in 1900, Cornelis Antonius Hubert, Henrica Hermina, Wilhelmus Herbertus.

Henricus Johannes Thijssen's parents were Cornelis Antoon Thijssen and Anna Gertrudis van Dijck. Thats as far as I know on that one.

Theodora Sibilla Hombergen's parents were Wilhelmus Hubertus Hombergen and Theodora Van den Wollenberg.

I hope this helps someone in their search.

Please let me know if you fit in anywhere and fill in the gaps.

If you have any information - please contact me.

Thank you so much! That information was very helpful and so interesting.

The scripts were a great add too, thanks for translating too. Those sites I have seen but are hard for me to understand.

I dont speak or understand dutch so your assistance helps.

If you find anything further, please let me know.

I am not part of this family nor have I done any research as far as the Kwanten family concerned. I just happened to be researching my dutch ancestry and Ryan Kwanten's name popped up on some site saying he was of dutch ancestry. For some reason I decided to read about him on wikipedia. Then being as I love family history, I searched the Kwanten name on here. I found this posting and this is what I can tell you.
Ryan Kwanten is from Sydney, NSW, Australia. His father's name is Eddie Kwanten. His mother's name is Kris. I was thinking maybe Eddie Kwanten is the Edward on your post.

Have a great day, Gina

Hi Jodie
I came accross this family tree, looking for our relatives in Australia (as we lost track long time ago) and I have some additions if you are interested.Your grandfather Nicolaas Kwanten is my fathers brother, who is Henricus Cornelis Marie, born in Gennep on 22071907 and died in Well on 14031985. And my father was not the only brother, there was, as you said, Jan Hendrik (1901), Theodora (1903), Antonetta (1905), my father, Nicolaas, Frannciscus (1911) and Gertruda (1919) who is as far as I know, still alive. My name is Leonarda (born in 1949 in Well) and I know live in South Africa with my husband. My two children are still in Holland.
Pieter Jan Hubert, by the way, was born on 21011871 and died in 1946.
Where do you fit in??
