1596/7 – ?
From page 10 in “Van Eaton & Allied Familes” by Steven Earl Coulter:
The earliest family record is the baptism in a church at Breda, Holland, on March 23, 1597, of Johannes Marinessen, son of Marinus Adriensen and Maria Hendricksen. (The surname was made by adding”sen” — meaning son — to the father’s first name.) This Johannes married Wilhelminia Hoannes, and they had a son Jacob Jansen, born in 1632, and baptised October 22, 1634 at Etten, eight miles from Breda, Holland. (In Dutch, Johannes and Jan both mean John, so the parents probably used the shorter name.)
