    Notes 
    • From Michelle Boyd: There were two Gerrit Jans Deckers marrying within a year of each other in Kingston, the first marrying Magdalena Willemz Schut and the second Margriet Janz Decker. Both grooms were marked with “j. m.”, meaning neither had married before. Also, Gerrit and Magdalena had children at the same time as Gerrit and Grietje were having their children. Thus, the two grooms were two separate people rather than one man who married twice.
      This leaves the question-who was the father of the Gerrit Jans Decker who married Grietje?
      Jan and Magdalena had no children named Jan, Heyltje, or Willemptje baptized in the Kingston record (only Jacob, Willem, Grietje (believed to have been named after Magdalena’s mother), and Neeltje). While the above suggests that this Gerret was Jan Broersen’s son, it offers no further clues to prove it. However, a Willemtie – was the witness at their son Jacob’s baptism.
      The names and baptismal witnesses of Gerrit and Grietje’s children can offer no clues as they would have named their children after both sides of the family and members of both Decker families would have been witnesses to the baptisms. (Gerret and Grietje did name their first three children Jan, Heyltie, and Grietje.)
      In the family of Jan Gerritsen, there is a son named Gerret but no daughter named Margriet (or Grietje). In the family of Jan Broersen, there is a daughter named Grietje, as well as a son named Gaerleff (probably a misspelling or mistranscription of Gerrett). As Grietje would not have married her own brother, it can be safely assumed that her husband, Gerrit, was the son of Jan Gerritsen and she was the daughter of Jan Broersen, while her brother Gerrett/Gaerleff was the one who married Magdalena Schut.
