"The emigrant ancestor of this family was Jan 'Janse' Ver Kerken, who came from Bruennielzen, a town on the River Linde, near Bruen, Holland. He embarked on the good ship 'Rostree' with his wife, Mayke, and children, and upon his arrival at New Amsterdam in 1663, with his family, took up his abode at New Utrecht, Long Island, where he settled and became possessed of large tracts of land. His wife, mayke Gisberts, appears on the assessment rolls of new Utrecht in 1675-76-83-93. Jan Janse

The marriage record lists him as a "young man of Beusichem," which is a small village near Buren. Sometime after the marriage, the couple relocated to Buurmalsen, a small farming community on the river Linge, about 60 kilometers southeast of Amsterdam. Beusichem and Buurmalsen still exist, and the church in Buren, built in 1347 in which they were married still stands. There is a plaque in the floor of the sanctuary with the name Verkerk.
