Hi

I am not related but found some info

Christina Brus is the mother of Johannes Brus. Christina was an unmarried mother.
She had at least 4 children in te village of Dieren and 2 children in the town of Zutphen
On 25 Jul 1839 she moved from Dieren to Zutphen. street: Melatensteeg.
There she lived unmarried with Barend Evers (probably the father of her last 2 children)
The family story that she or her children where related to nobility is probably not true.
The children of unmarried mothers were often embarrassed because they had no known father. So they told everybody that they where related to a highborn person. I have seen and heard this many times.
Christina Brus was a servant. So she could have been in a relationship with her boss.
More likely it was just an other servant or boyfriend who was the father of her children.
It is almost impossible to find out.
