Davidts-2 and Christoffelssen-1 appear to represent the same person because: This is the oldest paternal ancestor in this chain in need of a merge into the patronymic NNS PPP. No tree conflicts. Thanks! Court records show that David used a patronymic.

See also another source for David, at the foot of page 35, footnote #3 in the book "Early Records of the City And County Of Albany, and Colony of Rensselaerwyck (1656-1675)" by Jonathan Pearson, 1869. https://archive.org/stream/earlyrecordsofciv1alba#page/n85/mode/2up/search/Christoffel+Davits

This same source also has his father still living in Beverwyck/Albany in 1657. I would recommend the location of his birth be changed from Kingston to Albany, if you agree.
