The wedding banns [image] (declaration of intentions) for "Roeloff Janssoon and Anna Jans", dated April 1, 1623, from the Reformed Oude Kerk in Amsterdam, Holland:
Roeloff Janssoon, born in Maesterland, a seaman, aged 21 years, having no parents, [for parental consent] assisted by Jan Gerritsz., his nephew; residing 3½ years at the St. Tunis gate, of the one part; and Anna Jans, born in Vleckere in Norway, aged 18 years, assisted by Trijn Roeloffs, her mother; residing at the same place of the second part.
He "signed" with a crude "R", she with a "+".
