Coenraad Noyon (9/7/1890 – 22/12/1966)

Coenraad was born in Leeuwarden, Friesland, where he went to school. During his sea-officers’ training at the Institute in Den Helder, he was president of the Institute’s Senate. In the WWI he commanded a mine sweeper and in 1919 he retired as Lieutenant Commander 2nd class.

On the 25 November 1919 he married Alice Wilhelmine Fortanier (4/1/1898 – 12/5/1959). He was very popular during his marriage because of his cheerful songs which he accompanied with his guitar.Alice Noyon-Fortanier with Tjerk

Due to his father-in-laws protection and his relationship to M. Treub, he received bank training in Rotterdam (where his son Tjerk was born on 24/12/1920) then in Tilburg and later some years in Paris (where his daughter Blanche was born on 1/10/1922 in Courbevoie, Haut-de Seine) at the Banque de Paris et des Pays-Bas. Afterwards he briefly worked in Amsterdam and The Hague. In 1928 he had to take another job at the Incasso Bank in Schiedam, who had just taken over the bankrupt Slavenburg Bank. During several mergers in 1935 Coenraad was transferred to The Hague, where his children completed school.

Shortly after the war he took absence of leave, with the military rank of captain, to make a few trips as Governor to overlook the returnees who were transported by ship from Australia and the Dutch Indies to the Netherlands. Back at the bank (now Amro Bank), he was stationed in Amsterdam, where he retired in 1955 as attorney general at their headquarters. He remained active for several years as administrator of a foundation for hard-hearing children.

After the death of his wife he remarried (14/3/1961) to Martijntje Bouman (19/8/1917 – 15/4/1973) which was not a success. After a year she put him out of his house and squandered his antique furniture. After divorcing him (15/1/1964) she was once again married for two years and did probably the same to her new husband.

The last two years of his life were not happy, because of his unsuccessful second marriage and his difficulty with breathing. He died with emphysema.

For his grandson and namesake, he had a special name “small Coen” while he was as “big Coen” definitely a head smaller.


Alice Wilhelmine Fortanier (4/1/1898 – 12/5/1959)
At the age of 19 (?) she became director of a charitable home in Driebergen, where French children from the WWI front area were cared for. She received a French distinction “Officier de l’Instruction Publique”.
Later in life she gave lectures to the Dutch public about French literature.
