In 1755 he bought Bergestein from the Borre de Amerongen family, enabling him to join the Utrecht "corps of nobles", which he did in 1758. Stewart-General of Utrecht. Utrecht representative in the Amsterdam chamber of the East-India Company (1759-1764). Deputy to the States General (1767-1785).
According to Strier, van Hardenbroek proposed to Belle de Zuylen at some time after 1767 (probably in 1770), but at a time when she had already decided to marry Charles-Emmanuel de Charriere and leave Utrecht.1
At the Assembly at the Mademoisells Bottestein on March 27, 1764, Boswell conversed with Hardenbroek and Madame Geelvinck. Hardenbroek said to the latter "You are the loadstone" to which remark Boswell commented, "I am the steel".
