BirthOrigin*Hendrick was from Lochum, (this is probably the village of Lochum in Westerwaldkreis in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany), and was perhaps born there circa 1635. Date is estimated.1 

Family

Lysbeth van Bengale b. c 1643
Children
  • Heindrick b. b 17 Jul 1659; offered with a view toward further discovery in the record. The putative mother of the child appears to have been in a de facto relationhsip with the candidate father during his tenure at the Cape
  • Jacob Hendrixe van Hagen b. 28 Aug 1661; offered with a view toward further discovery in the record. The putative mother of the child appears to have been in a de facto relationhsip with the candidate father during his tenure at the Cape
(Passenger) ShipVoyage On 31 May 1658 Hendrick Hagens sailed on the Harpe from Wielinging to de Caep de Goede Hoop where it docked on 17 11 1658.2,3 
(Witness) Attestion On 20 May 1661 Cornelis Willemsz: and Georgius Frederick Wreede declared that the gunner, Willem Cornelisz was absuive toward Fredericus, creating a commotion in the process. The commander, Johan Anthoniszoon van Riebeeck, ordered that he be put in irons, but before the fiscal, Abraham Gabbema, arrived on the scene to implement the order, Cornelisz: retrieved his his side arm [sword] and ran toward Fredericus. Fortunately for the latter Hendrick Hagens and François de Coninck intervened and disarmed Cornelisz:. I have assumed Cornelis Willemsz: to be the individual from Linden, elsewlhere in the record described as a cadet. Corrections are welcome.4 
Occupation* On 12 April 1664 Hendrick Hagens was readmitted to the service of the company at his own request and appointed as an adelborst at a remuneration of 13 guilders per month.3 
(Father) BirthMaria Hendriks was born circa 1668 in de Caep de Goede Hoop. Even though Maria was said to be between 65 and 66 when she married Oortman in 1714, this seems unlikely. Oortman was around 38/39 and I am guessing that Maria was more likely around 45/46 - an age gap that seems more probable between a couple. It also fits more logically with her potential age at her first marriage. However, this date does seem to rule out Hendrick Hagens as her father. He does not, as far as I can tell, appear in the record after 1664.5,6,7 
Monsterrollen and Opgaafrollen (Muster and tax rolls)In 1660 Hendrick Hagens was enumerated in the muster roll, he was recorded as from Lochum, cadet.1
On 1 March 1661 Hendrick Hagens was enumerated in the muster roll, he was recorded as from Lochum, cadet.8
On 1 April 1662 Hendrick Hagens was enumerated in the muster roll, he was recorded as from Lochum, cadet.9
In 1663 Jacob Cloete and Feigen Radergoertgens were enumerated in the muster roll, they were recorded with two knechts Hendrick Hagens and Albert Barends Gildenhuisz. I have assumed the first to be Hendrick Hagens who until 1662 was recorded as an adelborst [cadet or midshipman] and who re-enters the service of the company as an adelborst in 1664.10

Declaration of Corn: Willemsz:, Corporal, and George Fredericus, of Uts [Oedt, near Cologne?], that on Monday, the 16th inst., about 8 p.m. the gunner, Willem Cornelisz:, of Rotterdam, used some bad words towards G. Fredericus, which went so far that a great commotion was created at the Fort. The commander ordered the gunner to be put in irons. The latter (whilst deponent, the corporal went to inform the fiscal [Abraham Gabbema] of the row, and who also heard the bad words), went into his room for his side arms which he brought out bare in his hand. He ran with it to G. Fredericus, but H. Hagens and Frans de Coninck took the sword from him and prevented him from doing any mischief. He swore and scolded and made a great noise, &c.
