Husband of #160 in the genealogy. Ledley cites T.G. Bergen in the Begren Family (1876), p. 558, no. 974, to identify Jacob as the Jacob Bergen baptized on Sept. 23, 1731 at the Port Richmond (Staten Island) Dutch Church. As Jacob and Margrietje Bennet were married prior to 1745 when daughter Grietje was baptized at Port Richmond, then Jacob would have been aged only 14 or 15 when married. This is highly unlikely (as Ledley acknowledges) and Bergen's identification is likely in error. Hereinafter cited as "Willem Adriaense Bennet of Brooklyn."
