Footnotes

[1] Note from Herwijnen Through the Centuries website:  “Adriaen Meertensz served as buurmeester of Herwijnen in 1616. (Van Maanen, R.H.C., "Bestuurders en dienaren binnen de heerlijkheid Herwijnen (1616) 1700-1800 (1809)", pp. 33-36, published by Gens Nostra)”
[2] Note from Herwijnen Through the Centuries website:  “The Rijckhuijsen transcripts mention Marike Allerts Kempen as the wife of a Maerten Ariens de Jongh. It is unclear from his notes as to which Maerten Ariens she married. Even though this couple is sometimes noted as the parents of Beerntje Maertens (see A-II-d) it seems more probable that she married to this Maerten, born circa 1603. (Van Rijckhuijsen MSS, found referred to in certain Gens Nostra articles as "Copye-brieven", translated by Engel Roza)…Probably the Meerten Adriaansz Jongh who served as waardsman in 1634. (Van Maanen, R.H.C., "Bestuurders en dienaren binnen de heerlijkheid Herwijnen (1616) 1700-1800 (1809)", p. 36, published by Gens Nostra).”
[3] According to the Herwijnen Through the Centuries website, Nieletien and Huiberet (Neelke and Huibert) had a son named Arien. I believe this Arien to be the same as the Arien Huiberts who called Alert Heymans “his uncle” in the Kingston court records (see section on Albert Heymans Roosa). He probably would then be the same person who was with Albert Heymans and Arien Allerts in the incident with the canoe and the one who said he had visited Albert Heymans’ wife during a riot.
