Van Laer (Albany, N.Y.: University of the State of New York, 1869; rev. 1916-1918), III:61, footnote: "The first mention of Tjerck Claessen occurs under date of April 24, 1656, in the register of marriages of the Reformed Dutch Church of New York, where he is given as from " Grootholt in Zunderlandt." This place has not been identified. Grootholdt, or Groote Holt, is the name of a small place near Borkelo in the province of Gelderland and also of a forest near Assen in the province of Drenthe, but no district by the name of Zunderlandt is found near either place. G. J. Honig, in a note on Tjerck Claessen de Witt inserted in Algemeen Nederlandsen Familieblad, 1889, 6:47, for the purpose of eliciting information that might connect him with the family of Johan de Witt, the grand pensionary of Holland, suggests that Zunderlandt may refer to Saterland, a small district in Oldenburg, and Schoonmaker, History of Kingston, p. 477, says : " This place is supposed to be Saterland, a district of Westphalia, on the southern border of East Friesland." Considering, however, that Tjerck Claessen, in a power of attorney to his brother-in-law, Jan Albertsen, of June 9, 1661, printed on another page, speaks of land inherited by him at " Oosterbemus in Oost Vrieslant," and that he had a sister Emmerentje de With, who in the record of her intended marriage at New Amsterdam to Marten Hofman, in 1664, is described as from " Esens in EmbderlV, it seems likely that " Zunderlandt " is a mistake for "Emderlandt " and that Grootholt was located not far from Esens in the northern part of East Friesland.".
