I could not find any sources in Ancestry or family search. Only FAG. I'll leave this to the Netherlands Group

In the meantime and until better sources are found, I added links in the narrative of each profile to the other-- as part of the FaG source item.

I also added Dutch roots to the tags

I should have added that additional information can be found on this website, Boshuizen en varianten, by Cornelis Boshuizen:

Liberally using Google Translate, I was able to gather that the information re: Jannetje van Boshuizen as daughter of priest Pontiaan van Boshuizen was sourced to "De Nederlandsche leeuw" (1993) and H.J. van der Waag's "Kwarstietstaat Jannetje van Leeuwen."  I have tried to locate "De Nederlandsche leeuw," but it wasn't readily available in the States and I don't have the tools (or linguistic skills) to navigate any online options.

Translation of the "Jannetje" text in the tree of Cornelis:

Jannetje Ponsdr. Janneke / Jannigje van Boschuysen, b. presumably Leiden [zuid-holland] circa 1525, deceased. Woerden [zuid-holland] before May 24, 1576 (Mo) "Ons Voorgeslacht 1989, p.191",
, "De Nederlandsche Leeuw 1993 col.141-142" // ** 12 May 1556 ** Jannigje Pontiaansdr Boshuizen proves, widow of Gerit Jansz Verheij with Bastiaan Cornelisz her husband in the presence of Cornelis Fransz and Jacob Gerritz as guardians of her children Pons, Willemke and Gerrit their paternal inheritance. Among others Pons as the eldest son 10 acres "leenland" in Bulwijck (OV 1989 p.191). Among her relatives was Coenraad Gillisz van Boschuysen, who appeared in Woerden on 24 May 1576 as a guardian for Jannetje's left-behind daughter Haasgen (Van der Waag, 'Jannetje van Leeuwen', 191-192); he dies before 19 Apr 1587; his widow then leased with her son Gerrit Coenenz. van Boschuysen as guardian, 12 acres land at Woerden on Ternoysvelt of the owner of the vicarie in the cross chapel in Woerden. Frans van Berendrecht Jansz. see below Margriet van Boschuysen.

Cornelis Boshuizen is citing the best available sources (no official BMD church records in existence for the relevant timeframe).

Unfortunately neither the 1993 issue of "De Nederlandsche Leeuw", nor the 1989 issue of the magazine "Ons Voorgeslacht" with the "Kwartierstaat Jannetje van Leeuwen" by H.J. van der Waag are freely accessible online.

Considering that these publications are from respectable genealogical societies and that there is no indication that Cornelis is misquoting I attached Jannetje as daughter of Pontiaan.
