26 January 1792, Weesp, North Holland, Netherlands[3,4]
Marten Post Marten
was born ca 1723 since his marriage Banns entry stated his age as 28
years and there is evidence that his father's name was Harmen since Harmen Post made his "mark" on their Marriage Intention.
It could be assumed that he was born in Weesp but I am not certain and baptised in the Netherlands
Reformed Church since he was married and buried in this church in Weesp[1,2,3,4].
Marriage to Rebekka Krijgers Marten and Rebekka Krijgers announced their Intention to marry on 10 July 1751 in Weesp.
This would normally have been lodged at the Town Hall or with the Court
and they would have published their first Bann the next day.
Marten Post & Rebekka Krijgers Marriage Intention, Netherlands Reformed Church, Weesp
The image below shows an entry from the Weesp, Netherlands Reformed
Church records. The 3 Banns headings at left are crossed
out. Normally there would be dates shown and in this case they
would probably have been 11, 18 & 25 July. Why these are not
shown is unknown. Also, there is a note - "hier in de kerk
getrouwt" - "here in the church married" - but again with no date
recorded. If their marriage followed the usual pattern of 3 weeks
of Banns then their marriage would have been on Sunday, 1 August 1751.

in the Netherlands Reformed Nieuwe Kerk (the New Church) in
Amsterdam on 30 March 1718. Her parents were Antonij Krijgers and
Classie de Bruijn. Isack Krijgers and Ariaantje de Bruijn, probably uncle and aunt, were

It seems that they lived their married lives in Weesp and both
passed away there. We don't know what Marten's occupation was but his first son, Harmen, was a Cobbler. Maybe he learned that trade from his father?
Marten and Rebekka also made irregular visits to Amsterdam,
probably to visit Rebekka's family and to participate as Wtnesses to the baptism of various
children born to Rebekka's family.

the cost of his burial which is presumed was paid by Rebekka or perhaps
one of his sons. The cost was 13 guilders and 18 cents[3,4].
