Jan Cornelis Haaxman, a serge worker (saaiwerker), married Trijntgen Claes on April 27, 1625.

Their son Cornelis Jans was baptized on September 10, 1628 (DTB inv. 55 fol. 61). On April 4, 1665, living in Ketel, he married Annetgen Louwen van Ouwelande, living on Gasthuislaan (DTB inv. 130 fol. 8; inv. 23 fol. 8v). In a will they made on May 8, 1666, Cornelis was noted as a baker on the Geer. He was described as robust and healthy (cloek en gezond) and she as sickly and lying in bed (siekelijck van lichaam te bedde leggende). She soon died.

Cornelis Jans lived to almost 90 and had three more wives. The second was Grietje Philips Schravelaer, whom he married on 1667-01-30. He was noted as a widowed bread baker living on the Geer. She was the daughter of the baker for the Kamer van Charitaten from 1645 to 1667, succeeded by his new son-in-law Cornelis Jans. Cornelis moved into the home where Grietje grew up on the Schoolsteeg. Their daughter, Hillegont Haecxman, was baptized on 1668-11-13 (DTB inv. 11 fol. 41v). Their other daughter, Maria Haxman, was baptized on 1670-04-27 (DTB inv. 58 fol. 126v) but must have died young.

The third was Leeuwenhoek's niece. On 1674-03-28 Cornelis Haecxman, widowed, living on Oude Delft, Schoolstraat married Maria Molijn, living on Choorstraat (DTB inv. 74 fol. 5v; 131 fol. 94v). Their son Jan Haacksman was baptized on 1678-04-24 (DTB inv. 11 fol. 138v), and Maria died two weeks later.

Cornelis married for the fourth and final time on 1680-02-03. Noted as a widowed baker living on Schoolstraat, Cornelis Haecxman married Margreta Heringh, living on Voorstraat (DTB inv. 75 fol. 75).  They had seven children. Loos-Haaxman's geneology has five of them, missing the first two sons named Hendericus, who must have died before the third was born in 1689.

Maria, 31, and Henrikus, 28, were unmarried. His will of 1714-10-23 and estate inventory of 1717-01-12 (both by notary Jan de Bries) show that he died a wealthy man.

Cornelis's children

Hillegont Haaxman married Jan Beman, brother of bookdealer and Leeuwenhoek's printer Adriaan Beman on 1687-08-24. When they married, Jan, living on the side of the Oude Kerk, was a clerk at the Bank van Leening who rose in the last few years of his life to be the cashier (kassier). Their son Jan Jans Beman was baptized 1702-04-20 (DTB inv. 59 fol. 215) and their daughter Hillegont Jans Beman on 1706-10-05 (DTB inv. 13 fol. 34v). The father Jan died in July 1724. Loos-Haaxman's article gives some details of their wills to point out that Cornelis Jans the charity baker was more prosperous than this bank clerk. When Hillegont Haaxman was buried on July 23, 1735, she was living on Oude Delft by the Boterbrug (DTB inv. 49 fol. 10v).

Jan Haaxman, Hillegont Haaxman's half-brother, was one of the beneficiaries of Leeuwenhoek's estate. See Related people under Learn more below.
