The baptism record for Jan Hendrickszen Brevoort and Annatie Bastiaans Eillsen's second child, Hendrick Janse Brevoort, on December 17, 1670 lists the mother of the child as 'Jannetie Jans'. Does anyone know if this was an error on the baptism record?
The witnesses for this baptism were Gysbert van Loenen (aka Gysbert Elbertszen Uytenbogaert) and Marritie Hendricks. I know that Marritie Hendricks was the sister of Jan Hendrickszen Brevoort, so it does appear to be the correct father, but why is the mother's name different?
Also, why is Annetie Bastiaens listed as both the mother and the witness for their 4th child, Elias on June 21, 1676? Was it common for a mother to also serve as a witness for her own child's baptism, or is it possible that her mother was the witness and also had the same name?
