From VAN EATON & Allied Families, by Steven Earl Coulter, 1974:

WESTBROOK (courtesy of William E. Westbrooke, 265 Buckingham Way, Apt 101, San
Francisco, Calif. 94132)

Jan Teunisen. On July 27, 1641, Jan Theunissen, carpenter of Leijden, Holland, age 36, engaged as a free man for the term of four years to serve as a carpenter in the New Netherland colony of Kiliaen van Rensselaer. This was a blanket contract, and the date July 27th is the date of sailing to confirm the agreement. Jan Teunisz, from Leyden, carpenter, sailed by Den Conick David from Amsterdam, July 23, 1641; arrived at New Amsterdam, Nov 29, 1641.

On Nov 22, 1646, Jan Teunissen, schout (similar to bailiff) of Breuklen, contracted to cut and convey to the Ferry, timber for a house for sergeant Doman and to erect the same. Jan was appointed sheriff of Breucklen on Dec 1, 1646.

In keeping with the Dutch custom of family names, Jan Teunisen may properly have named a son Anthony Jansen (Jan’s son).
