I am interested in Pieter Jans, who sailed to America on the Bontecoe in 1660, where have you found this information about his brothers from? I became interested in the Hagewolt
family due to my own ancestry though i have yet to find an a connection to Pieter Jans.
Willem Hilberts Hagewout (b. 13/07/1705) is my 6th great grandfather, his son Hilbert Willems is mentioned in severval books about Meppel, sometimes under the surname Hagewout sometimes as Moes.
