Annetje's first spouse, Aert, abandoned her in Holland. She had one son by him, Cornelius. She was able to obtain a divorce from Aert. There was a daughter as well
1664 . . . By May 13, 1664 Annetje petitioned the Wiltwyck Court to auction off Aert's belongings stating that he had "absented himself". See the Ulster County Genealogical Society newsletter, "genie', July 1997 for a genealogy.
1664 . . . The evidence of her desertion and the remarriage of her husband in Holland was presented by Annetje Adriaensen to the Director General and Council of New Netherland which awarded her a divorce August 21, 1664, so that she could marry again.
1684 . . . Ulster County, New York Probate Records, Volume I and II, by Gustave Anjou (page 45) transcribes the following Will: Jans, Gritie - widow of Jan Lembertsen: Testamentary disposition, dated June 27, 1684, and written in Dutch: "Her daughter (haer dochter) Annetie Adriaensen shall have, in advance, the bed, pillow and two large cushions (kleyne kussens), and Geesje is to receive the two large cushions (groote kussens), also the silver top-iron (ovryser). Residue to be divided between them. Grietie Jansen (her mark) No witnesses. Warning - Info from Gustave Anjou'
Aantekeningen:Zij gaf op 13 mei 1664 het gerecht van Wiltwyck opdracht om een inventaris lijst te maken van de eigendommen van Aert Pietersz Tack om die bij opbod te verkopen, zodat ze haar schulden kon betalen. Ze beweerde tegenover het gerecht dat Aert in Amsterdam was getrouwd met een andere vrouw. Aert kreeg de opdracht van het gerecht om antwoord te geven op de klachten van zijn eerste vrouw. Hij werd bevolen te verschijnen, maar hij kwam niet. Hem werd toen een straf opgelegd (slaan met een roede, brandmerken en verbanning uit de kolonie). Op 21 augustus 1664 kreeg Annetje toestemming om te scheiden en te hertrouwen.
On May 13, 1664 she gave the court of Wiltwyck command to create an inventory list of the property of Aert Pietersz Tack to sell them by auction, so she could pay her debts. She claimed in front of the court that Aert in Amsterdam was married to another woman. Aert was commissioned by the court to answer to the complaints of his first wife. He was ordered to appear, but he never came. He was then imposed a punishment (spanking with a rod, branding and banishment from the colony). On August 21, 1664 was Annetje permission to divorce and remarry.
In August 1664, Annetje successfully petitioned for dissolution of her marriage to Aert Petersen Tack. Her petition stated Anneke Adriaens for Dissolution of her marriage with Aert Pietersen Tack (of Haerlem), who afterwards married another woman in Holland.[2]

Removed the parents as Aerjan Jans is the father. See notes below about mother.

I propose we disconnect the mother to facilitate the childrens merges until we can verify the correct spelling for Annetje.

We know that Annetje married Tack and Van Ettern. Any objections?

I am inclined to also agree now that Adriaen van der Donck is NOT the father of Annetje.

The correct father seems to be Aerjan Jans instead, per the baptism photo detail.

Her correct patronym should probably be Aerjans, and versions like this one as "Arians" and such may simply be a mistaken reading of the j for an i.

As currently written, this profile gives the impression that the Annetje whose baptism record appears here has been confirmed to be the woman who emigrated to New Netherland and married Aert Tack and Jacob van Etten.

I have not seen any confirmation that Annetje was from Amsterdam, much less that she is the woman who was baptized there in 1645. I like what Gouverneur said about this record: "We know that on Aug 29, 1645 in the Old Church of Amsterdam was baptised Annet, daughter of Aerjan Janss and Geertje Jans. Witnessed by Agniet …. and Anna Terhase; but we don’t know if she is the Annetje who married our Aert. [Baptisms Amsterdam, Old Church, 8/63]."

Note that he interprets the father's name as Aerjan Jans, not Jans Aerjan.

How many Annetje Aerjans might have lived in 1600s Holland?

Is there any actual evidence that Adriaen van der Donck had a daughter named Annetje (or any other name, for that matter)?

Every detail in the profile for Arians-3 (except for the parents named in the data section) is from the biography for Annetje Arians/Adrians/etc. who married Aert Tack and Jacob van Etten. The fact that someone speculated that van der Donck was potentially eligible to be Annetje's father did not cause a new person to come into being.

The birthdate belongs to a different Annetje Arians who wasn't the daughter of Adriaen van der Donck.

Her father is Aerjan-1. The baptismal record lists Aerjan-1 as her father.
