Carrie: Thanks for help! Did your search include the Lutheran baptismal register of the Gouda congregation? On July 26, 1637 Jan Joachims(?) and Maritij Pietersz had a Joachim(?) baptized (image 10 of 238). They also had baptisms on April 1, 1635, June 15, 1636, May 16, 1640, Febr 16 1642 and May 31, 1643, maybe more. My problem is not to be certain of my transcipt of the last name Joachim, it looks more like Jorgims(z).That name does not make much sense to me... Could you have a look?
Even if the name could be read as Joachim, that still leaves the challenge of Wouterszen, or van Weert. Where could Jochem have acquired these as a last name? So, we are reaching to place Jochem in Gouda. Your suggestion to look in adjacent villages or towns makes sense if we can validate the current information : "Gouda" and "1637".
