Theunis Dirckse VanVechten in 1670; Hester's maiden name was VanArentsvelt; the Dutch family tree lists her as Hester Douwedr, using her father's first name in Dutch tradition; another source lists her father as "Douwe Janzoon deVries VanArentsvelt". Another lists Jans as Hester's maiden name, which is from her mother, Maria Jans; Barent Gerritse married Hester Fonda, widow of Jillis, sometime between 1656 and 1661 and was killed in the second Esopus War in 1663. Hester and daughter Sara were taken prisoner by the Indians. The widow eventually returned to Albany, her name appearing in occasional Albany records, as late as 1681.
