Citing Wikipedia:
"Hendrick Corneliszoon Lonck (Roosendaal 1568 - Amsterdam 1634) was een Nederlandse zeeheld van Brabantse afkomst. Zijn naam wordt ook gespeld als Lonk, Loncque en Loncq. Hij was de zoon van Cornelis Pieterszoon Lonck en Dichna Heinrich. Hij was de volle neef van de Zeeuwse viceadmiraal Cornelis Symonszoon Loncque. Roosendaal was in die tijd nog een zeehaven en Lonck was vermoedelijk reder. In 1604 vestigde Hendrick zich in Amsterdam waar hij op 2 november dat jaar de Antwerpse Grietgen Lenaerts huwde. In 1606 was zijn kapitaal zo'n 6000 guldens, opgebouwd door te werken als reder, schipper en koopman. In 1612 kocht hij een duurder huis. In 1623 en 1624 deed hij mee aan de expeditie van admiraal Willem de Zoete tegen de Barbarijse zeerovers. Hij bouwde toen kennelijk al een goede reputatie op, want hij werd kort daarna door de West-Indische Compagnie gevraagd als admiraal te functioneren, wat hij afwees vanwege zijn leeftijd. Hij veroverde echter, in 1628 alsnog admiraal geworden, samen met Piet Hein de Spaanse zilvervloot. Toen Hein ontslag nam bij de WIC, nam Lonck in 1629 onmiddellijk zijn functie van kapitein-generaal over en veroverde in 1630 met een vloot van twintig schepen een deel van Brazilië: Olinda en Pernambuco. Dit was Loncks laatste reis: na terugkeer op 20 juli 1630 nam ook hij ontslag. Hij werd op 10 oktober 1634 begraven in de Oude Kerk te Amsterdam."[4]
"Adm. Hendrick Corneliszoon Lonck (or Loncque and Loncq) (born 1568, Roosendaal – 10 October 1634, Amsterdam), a Dutch naval hero. He was born in Roosendaal in the southern Netherlands, of Brabant origin. His parents were Cornelis Pieterszoon Lonck and Dichna Heinrich. He was a full cousin of the Zeeland Vice Admiral Cornelis Symons Son Loncque. In 1604, he married Grietgen Lenaerts in Antwerp. In 1606, Lonck captained the Witte Leeuw (White Lion), a 320-ton merchant ship armed for war, and approached the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Near Tadoussac, he boarded two of Pierre Dugua, Sieur de Mons' ships, pillaging them for cannons, furs, mounts, and munitions. In 1623 and 1624, Lonck participated in the expedition of Admiral Willem de Zoete against the Barbary Coast pirates. Having made admiral by 1628, Lonck, in the service of the Dutch West Indies Company, joined Admiral Piet Hein in the Battle in the Bay of Matanzas, a naval battle during the Eighty Years' War in which a Dutch squadron was able to defeat and capture a Spanish treasure fleet. Lonck replaced Hein in 1629 as captain-general. In 1630, he commanded a Dutch colonizing expedition of 52 ships, 15 sloops, and 3,780 sailors that captured the historic city of Olinda, Brazil on 14 February. followed by the capture of the Brazilian state of Pernambuco after a feeble resistance by Matias de Albuquerque, its Portuguese Governor. It was to be his last voyage, returning to the Netherlands on 20 July 1630. He died in Amsterdam and was buried on 10 October 1634 in the Oude Kerk in Amsterdam."[5]

Yes there is a clear d in the first part and a flat A maybe. So I think we can put it to Adriaen, as it is defo not Pieter, Jodocus to long also called Joost impossible, and defo not Cornelis.

Brothers named of Hendrik at internet by binnenlandsvaarderskapel are Pieter, Adriaen, Cornelis and Jodocus. Looking at the marriage subscription look like Adriaen now?
