Descendants of Jacob Klaasz KOENDERTS & Maartje JACOBS

This Descendant Journal contains all the descendants of Jacob Klaasz KOENDERTS (1630-1662) and Maartje "Dove Meert" JACOBS  that I have been able to identify to-date. Jacob and Maartje lived in the fishing village of Egmond aan Zee, Noord-Holland and had at least children that I am aware of.
Their sons,Leendert Jacobsz, our direct ancestor, apparently chose to change his surname to HALF and therefore this ancestral line carries the surname HALF or HALFF.
Their great grandson Cornelis Dirksz HALFF (1720-1802) is the subject of the Pedigree Chart below.
