***  My original family tree went back no further than Jacob Jansz van Hell. The name indicates that the name of Jacob’s father was Jan . Therefore, if I wanted to find a link between the van Hell's and the van der Hell's,I had to find a 'Jan' who would fit between Jacob (Jan's son) and Reyer (ReynierJansz van Hell, who had been identified as a 'Merchant in Amsterdam' by Vos, as a descendant of the van der Hell's by de Vries, and who could be Jan's father. (It was unlikely that another van Hell family lived in Amsterdam at that time. Amsterdam was then a relatively small city).

Unfortunately the data at the Amsterdam archives pertaining to the 16th century and before only mention given names and fathers' names, - no family names. That was customary at the time.

Nevertheless I managed to find a 'Jan' who fitted the picture well. He was Jan Arent, baptized on July 7, 1566 in the Oude Kerk in Amsterdam, son of Reyer Jansz and Jans Lijn.  Reyer Jansz married a Jans Stijn in the same church on Oct. 12, 1567.

In spite of the discrepancy between the wife's and the mother's names and the fact that the birth of the baby preceded the marriage by more than a year,(which may  have been  a common occurrence in those times!), the two names of the baby suggest  a very  plausible fit:  Jan,  the name of the paternal grandfather,and  Arent,  the second name of the  paternal  grandmother.  (Her father's name).

 

****  Jan/Johan  appears  under  these  two  names  in  different sources. De Vries mentions him as Johan Henricksz van Hell, while Vos calls him Jan van der Hell. Since both married  Stijne Arents on the date indicated, they are one and the same person. In fact, Jan was a bastard son of Henrick van der Hell, and was  therefore a van Hell.
