The Ternate Lineage

  Detail from a churchbook from the 'Christelijke Hervormde Gemeente' in Ternate, showing the record of the birth of Willem Pesulima, son of Jacob Pesulima and Magdalena de Rooij on 9 February 1834. Later on the name of the child changed to Willem Passelima.
Godfather and godmother are Johan de Leeuw and Christina Tuhulele.

Here we find the descendants of Hendrik Pesulima. According to the tradition he settled down at Ternate, a small island in northern Maluku. During the English rule he was member of the Ambonese corps consisting of 400 soldiers including Thomas Matulesi from Saparua. The Dutch, when they got back the rule over Ambon on 25 March 1817, refused to take over the Ambonese corps from the British.
Hendrik Pesulima then should have gone to Ternate after the disbandment of the corps in 1817.
The family name undergoes several changes from Pesulima to Passelima.

Hier vinden we de nazaten van Hendrik Pesulima. Volgens de overlevering vestigde hij zich op Ternate. Hij zou tijdens het Engelse (tussen)bestuur over Ambon deel hebben uitgemaakt van het Ambonese korps van 400 soldaten onder wie ook de vrijheidsstrijder Thomas Matulesia uit Saparua. De Nederlanders willen bij het herstel van hun gezag in Ambon, op 25 maart 1817, het korps niet overnemen van de Engelsen.
Hendrik Pesulima zou dan na de ontbinding van het korps in 1817, naar Ternate moeten zijn vertrokken.
De familienaam ondergaat een aantal veranderingen van Pesulima tot Passelima.

The oldest descendant of the Pesulima/Passelima family we found in Ternate is:

Married to Magdalena DE ROOIJ.
They have one son:


  Both father Jacob and son Willem Pesulima are mentioned here, we believe. Page from the Almanak en naamregister van Nederlandsch-Indie, 1862, with residents of Ternate.

Profession: innkeeper [kastelein] Club Minerva.
The Club Minerva is mentioned in the book 'Ternate, The Residency and Its Sultanate (Bijdragen tot de kennis der Residentie Ternate, 1890) by F.S.A. de Clercq, Translated from the Dutch by Paul Michael Taylor and Marie N. Richards:
'Walking further along the beach, one comes first to a crossroads. The classrooms of the European school are located here. On the corner is the club building, not often visited by the inhabitants but a welcome refuge for travelers and strangers. The club has a well-supplied reading room containing journals and newspapers that have already circulated among the members. The fortunes of the club have varied, sometimes enjoying a large number of interested members, at other times temporarily languishing because of some local quarrel, but it has weathered all storms fortunately for Ternate, since the club provides a very pleasant amenity in this small place. The club is called the 'Minerva', a name given to it by its founders and still used.'

Greta's father was the first who provided me with some information about the family tree. At the time he passed away I wasn't really started to collect more info; the idea to build a family tree came years after his dead. I often wished we could talk more about the family history. I'm sure he would have been very enthusiastic about the whole idea and he certainly would have accompanied me on the tour along all the family members in the Netherlands and maybe abroad!

Oom Bert vertelt over zijn jeugd in Indonesië: Mijn grootouders van vaders kant heb ik nooit gekend. De tweede vrouw van mijn opa heb ik ontmoet toen ik met mijn vader, die groot verlof had, naar Ternate ging. Ik was waarschijnlijk nog geen vijf jaar oud. Oma Dina, zo noemden wij haar, kan ik me niet meer herinneren. Het enige wat me van Ternate is bijgebleven is dat je vanaf de voorgalerij van het huis waar wij logeerden, de vulkaan van Ternate goed kon zien. Wat ik me uit die tijd in Ternate ook levendig voor de geest kan halen is dat het strand er prachtig was en dat we zeeschildpaddenvlees aten.
Mijn lagere school-tijd was verschrikkelijk. Omdat mijn vader bij de Posterijen was, werkte hij hooguit drie jaar in een plaats. Zo zijn we enkele keren verhuisd. Ik vond het helemaal niet leuk om van school te veranderen. In ben de lagere school begonnen in Surabaya. Tussentijds zaten we in Jakarta en Bandung. Ik heb de lagere school afgemaakt in Semarang. Bovendien had ik in die jaren veel last van astmatische-bronchitus. Ik heb heel wat keren met mijn hoofd tegen de muur gebeukt om maar adem te kunnen halen.
Na het laatste jaar van de lagere school gingen we in de grote vakantie naar Probolinggo. Daar woonde mijn opa van moeders kant, opa Sander (Siahaya). Mijn moeder had genoeg gespaard en zei: 'We gaan nou naar opa, met vakantie'. Zij had haar vader toen enkele jaren niet gezien. Opvallend genoeg ging in die vakantie in Probolinggo mijn astmatische bronchitus in korte tijd helemaal over. Om die reden zijn wij in Probolinggo blijven wonen. De eerste tijd woonden we bij de jongste broer van mijn moeder in huis. Daar woonde opa Siahaya ook. Later trokken we naar een huurhuis. Probolinggo was toen een kleine stad die samen met Pasuruan en Lumajang tot de suikerstreek hoorde.
Omdat in Probolinggo geen HBS was, heb ik er de Mulo gevolgd tot en met het eindexamen. Opa Siahaya was een lieve en een opvoedende opa. Als gepensioneerd onderwijzer gaf hij nog altijd les aan zijn kleinkinderen, als één van ons ergens niet uit kwam. Hij had een eigen werkkamer waar hij ook een groot blik met snoep bewaarde. Als wij als kinderen een liedje kwamen zingen vooor zijn deur, kregen we een snoepje. Mijn vader was inmiddels in het hoofdkantoor van de Posterijen in Bandung terecht gekomen. Als je daar zat dan was je 'onder dak', dan was het trekken van de ene plaats naar de andere wel voorbij.
Na die drie jaar in Probolinggo zijn we naar Malang verhuisd. Daar heb ik de HBS gedaan. Ik kon geen examen doen omdat de oorlog met Japan uitbrak toen ik in de eindklas zat. Na de oorlog kreeg ik een brief dat ik toch het diploma van de HBS zou krijgen. Volkomen onverwacht hoorde ik dat ik naar Nederland zou gaan om te studeren. Buiten mij om had mijn vader vanuit Bandung een studiebeurs voor Nederland voor mij aangevraagd. Pas toen de beurs was toegekend heeft hij mij er over verteld. Mijn eerste reactie was dat ik helemaal niet naar Nederland wilde. Maar een paar maanden later was het al zover. In begin 1947 ging ik als 'beursaal' naar Warmond. Daar werden wij opgevangen en van daaruit werd voor iedereen een verblijfplaats geregeld. Ik werd redelijk snel opgehaald door tante Jo, de zus van mijn vader (zij en mijn vader leken sprekend op elkaar). Zij woonde in Leiderdorp. Ik ging studeren in Delft, maar het reizen brak mij zowel lichamelijk als mentaal op. Op aanraden van mijn studiebegeleider ben ik toen de HTS gaan volgen. Zodoende kwam ik in Dordrecht terecht. Daar was ik ook in de kost.
Na mijn studie kon ik aan de slag bij de Kunstmest in IJmuiden, waar ik ook stage had gelopen. Ik heb wel veel gesolliciteerd in Indonesië, tot en met de minister van Industrie aan toe, maar ik kreeg nooit bericht terug. Vermoedelijk had dit te maken met de relatief veel hogere salarissen die in Nederland betaald werden.

Profession: directielid STO (opleidingsinstituut voor gymleraren) in Bandung.
Oom Bert vertelt: 'Met mijn broer Job heb ik veel geschreven toen ik in Nederland woonde. In 1968 is hij zon twee maanden bij ons in Amsterdam geweest. Hij studeerde in die tijd in Amerika met een beurs van de Indonesische regering. Hij heeft daar in 1970 een hartaanval gekregen en is overleden . Zijn lichaam is gebalsemd en overgevlogen naar Indonesië. De regering wilde hem bij de 'helden van de revolutie' begraven, maar mijn moeder wilde dat niet: 'dat gebeurt niet, want hij is helemaal niet zo. Begraaf hem maar op de begraafplaats van zijn vader.'

      V.1 Philipbert SCHENKHUYSEN, born Manokwari, West Papua (New Guinea, Birdshead isle) on 21 March 1919. He moved to The Netherlands. He died in ... on 14 September 2001.
Career: KNIL-soldier.
De heer Schenkhuysen heeft als kind onder meer op Ternate en Ambon gewoond. Over die tijd vertelt hij ons als we hem bezoeken in februari 1994:
Ik ben geboren in 1919 in Manokwari op Vogelkop eiland. Op jonge leeftijd verhuisde ik met m'n ouders naar Ternate, waar ik tot 1931 woonde. Op Ternate woonden christenen en mohammedanen. Zij stonden op goede voet met elkaar. In die tijd was de christengemeenschap in Ternate één grote familie. Ze beschouwen elkaar als broers en zusters. Ze beschermen elkaar. Je noemde iedereen oom en tante. Mijn onderwijzers in school waren juffrouw Dousee, meneer en mevrouw Jansen en meneer Tannenbaum die later met juffrouw Dousee trouwde.
Mijn vader was inspecteur van politie. Als je vader zo'n functie heeft word je alom gerespecteerd. Je hebt een streepje voor. Iedereen is beleefd, de deur staat altijd voor je open, er is altijd plaats voor jou. Mijn vader was niet erg streng, maar er waren wel regels. Er was wel discipline. Als je moeder half Europees en half Indonesisch is zoals mijn moeder, dan krijg je van beide culturen wat mee. Je leert heel gauw Maleis, ook door je vrienden. Mijn moeder was niet streng.
Mijn opa van moeders kant was al overleden toen ik werd geboren maar mijn oma (Sophia Christine DAMAPOLIE, e.g.) heb ik nog gekend, zij was een molukse vrouw. Mijn vader had een huis laten bouwen in haar tuin dus wij woonden naast haar, nadat we eerst een tijd in een huurhuis hadden gewoond. Oma woonde alleen met haar zoons Wim en Joop. Ik was het lievelingskind van oma. Ze vroeg me bijvoorbeeld wat ik wilde eten. Oma was een lieve vrouw, oma was alles. Ze voedde ons ook op. Vroeger luisterden we nog naar de ouderen. We hadden eerbied voor de oudjes.
Op mijn twaalfde gingen wij naar Ambon omdat mijn vader daar ging werken. De familie Passelima komt oorspronkelijk van Ambon en heet er: Pesulima. Toen wij naar Ambon verhuisden, woonden de meeste Pesulima's in Galala, zo'n vier kilometer van de stad Ambon. Zij kwamen ons begroeten bij onze aankomst daar. Wij gingen wonen in de stad Ambon maar hadden een soort buitenhuis in Galala. Daar gingen we in de weekeinden vaak naar toe. Mijn vader hield er van om daar te jagen en te vissen.
In Galala woonden oom Nanny en oom Toet. Zij woonden naast elkaar. Er woonden meerdere Pesulima's in Galala. Veel mannen waren KNIL-militair geweest en hadden nog onder Van Heutsz in Aceh gevochten. Wij gingen het meest om met oom Nanny. Hij was getrouwd, maar had geen kinderen. Ze hadden wel een aangenomen dochter.
Met oom Nanny zijn we ook eens naar het dorp Soya geweest. Dat was omdat de familie Pesulima altijd de raja van Soya is geweest. Soya is een rustig bergdorp. Ik mocht als oudste zoon van mijn moeder nog in een soort stenen zetel zitten.
Enkele Pesulima's zijn in de Japanse tijd vermoord (onthoofd) door de Japanners. Dat was omdat ze onderdak hadden verleend aan Australiërs.
Van Ambon ben ik in 1938 het leger in gegaan. Eerst naar een opleidingsbataljon in Bandung en later naar Malang. Na de oorlog ben ik naar Nederland gegaan. Mijn vader heb ik pas weer ontmoet toen ik tien jaar geleden met vakantie terug ben geweest. Hij woonde toen in Timor of één van die eilanden. Hij vroeg: 'Wat kom je doen'. Maar hij was wel blij mij te zien. Hij is acht jaar geleden overleden. Mijn moeder is in 1942 overleden.

    IV.8 Helda PASSELIMA

Helda is mentioned in a death certificate as the unmarried daughter of Herman Lodewijk Passelima and Rieka Josephina Sohilait. This is somewhat confusing because other information would indicate that Herman Lodewijk had already died in Ternate in December 1918.

We found a source that mentions Elizabeth Alhita Pesulima born Ternate 1833. Not clear how she relates to this lineage. Possibly she is also een child of Jacob Pesulima and Magdalena de Rooij.
