Simon's Family History

 
TWELTH GENERATION


Jan Frans MONTENACK / MONTENAEK etc. was originally from Weert in Limburg, Holland.

He was married 1st to Sara Willems on 24 Feb 16301 :-

He married  2nd Elisabeth or Lysbeth GODERIS / GODERUS on the 6 March 16322.

Elisabeth was baptised as an adult on the 19 Dec 1635 in the Dutch Reformed Church at Overschie, South Holland3. This was a dual baptism with her daughter Grietgen. No mention was made of her age. The baptisms took place only 6 months after the previous child Mouweritntge was baptised in Rotterdam. There is no indication of how old Grietgen was or why she was baptised in Overschie with her mother and not in Rotterdam. For some reason there must have been a problem with Grietgen's baptism in Rotterdam. The mother's baptism in Overschie was by attestaion of the church of Rotterdam. Perhaps Grietgen's was a delayed baptism caused by a refusal to baptise her until her mother was baptised, possibly causing a dispute with the church in Rotterdam? An adult baptism tends to confirm the opinion that the Goderis family were Mennonites who did not believe in baptism until adulthood was reached5.


1633 Gregory Lang Camer or Camerling, Jan Fransz Montenack and Joris Jacobsz S'Hartogenbosch lay at the request of Coenraidt Pietersz of Venlo a statement about an argument between Peter Clementsz, local auctioneer and Coenraidt Pieters.

  • Elva Lyon in her article in the New York Genealogical & Biographical Society Record in 19925 she mentions that Jan & Lysbeth had 5 children (unanmed) born in Rotterdam & Amsterdam between 1635 & 1646. She obviously did not include Grietgen baptised in Overschie, which leaves 3 more unnamed children. I have yet to check the Amsterdam registers.
