I removed Janse from Willem's name because this was not part of his name. William is the first born son of Rev. Everardus Bogardus and Anneke Jans. He has no relation to his mother's first huband, Roeleff Jansen and as such would not have had Janse or any version of Janse included in his name. HIs baptism records and mother's will calls him by Willem, not Willem Janes. I can not find any documents from the time when he was alive where he was referred to as Willem Janes. "Janse" and other variences of Roeleff Jansen's name appear to have been added Willem's name by later generations.

clerk in the Secretary's office in New Amsterdam in 1656.
