Marriage*He married Maria Bartelz, daughter of Elisabeth van Angola, circa 1685.1

Names in the record, in publications, etc.The name of Cornelis appeared as Cornelis Heermanse in the cited publication(s.)2
The name of Cornelis appeared as Cornelis Reremans in the cited publication(s), I suspect the last name might be a transcription error by Hattingh, and that it was in fact Heremans. The letter H was often written in a way that today we may perceive as an R.3
