[S1169] Charlotte Wilcoxen, "Ships and Work Boats of New Netherland, 1609-1674", A Beautiful and Fruitful Place (1991): 54–55, "A record of the West India company dated March 28, 1624, notes that “the colonists going to New Netherland for the Chamber of Amsterdam will be mustered tomorrow.“12 A sequel to this entry shows that on March 30, 1624, a special manifesto was formally read to colonists preparing to sail on the ship Nieuw Nederlandt.13 Wassenaer, in his Historisch Verhael, says that the Nieuw Nederlandt was a vessel of 130 lasts (about 260 tons); her skipper, Comelis Jacobsen Mey. He also declares that it was this ship that brought over the thirty families of Walloons who have generally been accepted as the first bona fide colonists (that is, complete families) to New Netherland. Since both of these contemporary sources support the claim that this group came on the Nieuw Nederlrandt in 1624, the matter would seem to be settled, but many years later, in 1688, one of these Walloon refugees, Catelina Trico, at the age of 83 deposed that she came on d’Eendracht (Unity) in 1623.14 This has muddied the issue of what ship brought these first settlers, and the claims for both have been carefully examined and reported on by two well-known historians of the Dutch in America, CA. Weslager and Arnold J.F. van Laer.15

Other reliable sources do not give a date. Packrat-pro (http://www.packrat-pro.com/ships/DeEendracht1.htm) uses 21 Jan 1623/4, just before sialing on 25 Jan 1623/4. Other souces (without citation) place the marriage at the Walloon Church in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
