David K. Conover:
"On the earliest surviving list of members of the Dutch Reformed Church of Brooklyn, Sep 12, 1660, appear the names of Willem Gerritse van Couwenhoven, his first wife, and her parents. He was Magistrate of Brooklyn 1661, 1662, and 1664. Willem Gerretse, on behalf of his first wife, was one of the three heirs to the Brooklyn grant of his father-in-law, Joris Dericksen Brinckerhoff, and joined with the other heirs in selling this property on January 16, 1661. He was Signed a petition on May 25, 1662 as schepen of Brooklyn. He was deacon in 1663 at Reformed Dutch Church, Breukelen, Breukelen Province, Nieuw Nederland. His name appears on the patent of Flatlands, 1667 and he apparently removed there about that time. [He was an Elder of the Reformed Dutch Church at Flatlands in 1677. He signed the oath of allegiance at some time between Sep 26-30, 1687 being called a resident of "fflackland" and native born. The Records of the Brick Church, Marlboro, Monmouth County, New Jersey, originally known as the Reformed Church of Freehold of the Navesink, begin in 1709 and show that in that year seven children of Willem Gerretse were already members of that congregation namely, Cornelis, Pieter, Albert, Jan, Jacob, Neeltje (Nelke), and Sara. In 1717, two other children appear as members, Annetje (Antie) and Jacomina (Jockamiinke). It was not until 1721 that the church shows as members "Willem Ger Kowvenhoven and his wife," and since the wife, Jannetje (Janneke), appears alone on the list in 1723, it seems possible that Willem Gerretse died between 1721 and 1723. He sold his plantation in Brooklyn to his son William and moved to Monmouth County, New Jersey in November, 1709. The existence of the original Bible of Willem Gerrete, with his own record of his marriages and the births of his children, states that he married "Altieu Yoris" in the year 1660. She was Altje, daughter of Joris Dericksen Brinckerhoff, and was the widow of Cornelis Mattys (Mathiews). She died on June 3, 1663, and Willem Gerretse married secondly, on February 12, 1665, "Jannetie Peters," who was Jannetje, daughter of Peter Monfort. She was baptized as Jannetje on May 8, 1646, in the Reformed Dutch Church of Nieuw Amsterdam."
