Genealogy of the Lycklama à Nijeholt
Tinco Lycklama was the oldest of the seven children of Jan Anne Lycklama à Nijeholt (1809-1891), esquire, mayor of Opsterland and a member of the States Provincial of Frisia, and his wife Ypkjen Hillegonda van Eysinga (1815-1854). Tinco was named after his grandfather who was “grietman” (mayor-judge) of Ooststellingwerf (1788-1790) and Utingeradeel (1790-1795). Tinco’s mother passed away when he was only 16. Four brothers and sisters died young. His sister Eritia Ena Romelia Lycklama à Nijeholt (1845-1902) and his brother Augustinus Lycklama à Nijeholt (1842-1906) survived him. On 21 July 1875, in Oosterhout, he married the catholic Baroness Juliana Agatha Jacoba thoe Schwartzenberg en Hohenlansberg (Oosterhout, 11 June 1845 – Leeuwarden, 11 June 1914), a daughter of Gemme Onuphrius Tjalling Burmania, Baron thoe Schwartzenberg en Hohenlansberg (1806-1862) and of Hendrika de Hoogh (1803-1880). In Cannes, Tinco Lycklama, technically only an esquire, went by the nickname of “Baron Lycklama”. Tinco and his wife remained childless.
