Marretje was born in about 1636 in Nordstrand, Schleswig-Holstein, Denmark (now Germany). Her father was Hans Hansen or Jansen (Hans Hansen Van Nordstrand). Hans was born Bet. 1600 and 1610 on Nordstrand Island, Schleswig-Holstein, Denmark (now Germany), and migrated to New Amsterdam in 1639. Hans was a farmer, and owned a farm in the Flatbush neighborhood located in the borough of Brooklyn in Kings County, Long Island, New York. The community name derives from the Dutch for "level forest" and is presently bounded by Parkside Avenue, Nostrand Avenue, Avenue H and Coney Island Avenue. It includes the southernmost portion of Prospect Park. Marretje's father Hans Hansen Van Nostrand (or Nordstrand) married 1st Rymerig Volkert, and they had these children-Jan, Volkert, Marritje, Simon, and Rommetje Hansen Van Nostrand. His first wife died before 1645, and Hans placed Marritje who was just 9 in the home of a farmer Phillip Garretsen where she learned the art of homemaking. Hans Hansen Van Nostrand married for a second time 29 Nov 1652 at Kingston, NY to Janneken Gerrits Van Loon, and they had these children: Catherine, Gerret, Jan, and Peter Hansen Van Nostrand. The children and descendants of Hans most often spelled their name Van Nostrand, though it often appears recorded spelled a number of different ways, Van Noorstrand, Van Nordstrand, Van Norstrand, Van Noordstrandt. Hans died in 1690 in Flatlands, (Brooklyn), Kings, Co., NY. After Jurian's death Marritje remarried to Jacob Jansen Stoutenburgh. Marritje died after 1670 in Ulster, Kingston County, New York.

Jurian and Marretje (Hansen) Westfall had 6 children-Rymerick Westfall, Nicholas Claes Westfall, Johannes Juriaen Westfall, Abel Westfall, Symen Westfall, and Elsjen Westfall.

According to

Marritje "Maria" was the daughter of Hans Jansen Van Nordstrandt, who wed Reymerig Volkert and lived at Nordstrandt Island in present Germany. They had three children; Jan, Simon, and Marritje (Maria). Shortly after Marritje’s birth in 1636, the family came to America and Hans took up farming at Amersfoort (Brooklyn) on Long Island. Reymerig died soon thereafter and Hans married Jannetje Van Leeuwen at New Utrecht, Long Island. They had seven children. Maritje was eventually bound out to a tavern keeper at Fort Orange (Albany, NY) and in 1653, at the age of seventeen, wed Juriaen Westfall.

In 1654, Juriaen and others moved to the Esopus Creek area to establish a settlement. This was chartered by the Dutch as the city of Wiltwick (Kingston, NY) in 1661. There Maria had six children:

1) Rymerick in 1654 2) Nicholas in 1657 3) Johannes in 1659

The Kingston Dutch Church was established in 1660 and the following children were christened there.

4) Abel, C: 25 Sep 1661. (Died 1689-96) 5) Symon (Simon), C: 30 Sep 1663 6) Elsje (Elsie), C: 27 Jun 1666. (Died ~1687)

Jurian died in 1667 and left six children of ages one to thirteen. Maria soon married Jacob Jansen and raised her children in Kingston.
