(ibid, Van Maanen).”
[2] Note from Herwijnen Through the Centuries website:  “The Rijckhuijsen transcripts mention Marike Allerts Kempen as the wife of a Maerten Ariens de Jongh. Sometimes being noted that they were the parents of Beerntje Maertens, who most certainly was born about the year 1585. Nevertheless, it is not quite clear which Meerten de Jongh, this one or his grandson of the same name…(Van Rijckhuijsen transcripts, found referred to in certain Gens Nostra articles as "Copye-brieven", translated by Engel Roza)”
