  • Notes 
    • Dutch had the tradition of using patronymic..... names. Father was Wobbes, the son became Jan Wobbes.... In the Archives, trace back to Jan Wobbes. Interestingly, on the death record for his wife, Geeske Jacobs, her full name is listed as Geeske Jacobs Smitter, daughter of Jacob Hendriks Smitter and Hiltje Alberts. Jan is just Jan Wobbes. Did Jan assume the Smitter name from Geeske's side of the family? [2]
