There were only 2 Dircks on the 1698 Venhuizen church membership list: a Dirck Spanjart and Efru Cornelis and a Dirck Harckesz and Pietertie Wouters (the only Pietertie I found in Venhuizen that year). Both lived in de Buurt. Name comparisons say Dirck Harckesz was the father of Cornelis.
On Dec 25 1682 Dirck Hercksz, the son of Anne Floris, made profession of faith. The fact that his mother was labeled in his profession of faith record indicates there was another Dirck Harkesz in Venhuizen at this time. Since I found no Pietertie Wouters in the Venhuizen membership lists, it's likely that our Dirck Harckesz wasn't this one. It's also possible that Dirck's mother Geert Hermans died soon after giving birth to him and his father Harcke Dircksz then married Anne Floris the next year. However, there is no marriage record for them in Venhuizen and no membership record for Anne either - and Venhuizen does have the records for these years.
