A double first cousins marriage in the Warrebie family in Dordrecht

Jan Warrebie and Henderijntje Warrebie were married on 5 May 1771 in Dordrecht
Johannes (Jan) Warrebie (1746-1775) and Hendrina Warrebie (1736-1785) ware married on 5 May 1771 in Dordrecht, The Netherlands. Their surname is spelled in different ways. Jan, for example, was baptized in Dordrecht on 23 October 1746 as a younger son of Thomas Warbie and Elisabeth de Raad (1706-1797). Hendrina was baptized in Dordrecht on 14-3-1736 as eldest daughter of Tristom Warbie and Aartie de Raad (1713-1785).
Their fathers were brothers and their mothers were sisters, so Jan and Hendrina had the same 4 grandparents: Thomas Warbie (±1670-1732), Catharina 't Hooft (1675-1746), Denijs de Raad and Hendrikje Troost (1677-±1749). Jan and Hendrina Warrebie had two children: Anthonij (1772-1807) and Aartje (1774-1802). Jan Warrebie was buried on 4 March 1775 in Dordrecht.

Dordrecht
Hendrina Warrebie's remarriage was on 2 July 1780 in Dordrecht. Her new husband was Hendrik Sleper (also: Slijpers). He had been born in Limburg, the southeastern part of the Netherlands. Their daughter Anna was baptized in Dordrecht on 19 November 1780. Hendrik may have died soon afterwards, for Hendrina was a widow again when she was buried on 1 January 1785 in Dordrecht, aged just 28.
Their son Anthonij was married in 1802 in Dordrecht and had two children, too, before he died on 24 September 1807, aged 35, while serving as a sailor on the Dutch fleet.

Anthonij Warrebie was serving as a sailor on the Dutch fleet when he died op 25-8-1807.

Same Name - Adriaen Wouters Visscher

My 17th-century ancestor Wouter Jacopssen Visscher had 2 sons named Adriaen. They were distinguished by the nicknames “de Ouden” (the Old one) and “de Jonge” (the Young one).

Adriaen Wouters “de Ouden” Visscher was probably born between 1625 and 1630 in Raamsdonk, Brabant, The Netherlands. He was known as Ariaen de Ouden”. He is likely a son of Wouter’s second marriage with a woman named Lijsken Ariens.
Ariaen “de Ouden” was married on 25 February 1655 in ‘s-Grevelduin-Capelle, Brabant, to Cornelia (“Neeltjen”) van Tilborgh. Neeltjen was baptized on 22 January 1634 in ‘s-Grevelduin-Capelle with witness Japickgen Jacobs. Her parents are my triple ancestors Adriaen Woutersz (†1678) and his wife Toniske Seeu (±1605-1680). Ariaen and Neletjen had 7 children, all girls: Lijsken, Teuntje, Dingentke, Marie, Anneke and Wouterke (twice). The oldest two girls were named after their grandmothers.
Ariaen likely died between August 1678 and May 1684. Cornelia’s death was recorded on 5 September 1704 in Vrijhoeve-Capelle.

Adriaen Wouters “de Jonge” Visscher was baptized on 29 May 1635 in ‘s-Grevelduin-Capelle. He was later known as Adriaen or Arien “de Jonge”. He is a son of his father’s third marriage to Anneken, a daughter of Tielman Jacops and Adriaentken Oerlemans. Anneken was widow of Adriaen Dircks “den Ouden” van Clootwijck and had a daughter Adriaentken van Clootwijck. Anneke’s first husband had a brother with the same name, too, and they both had the same parents, while their grandfathers were both named Adriaen.
Arien “de Jonge” was married on 26 December 1667 in ‘s-Grevelduin-Capelle to Anneke Adriaense van Tilborgh, an elder sister of Neeltjen. Anneke was baptized on 11 January 1632 in ‘s-Grevelduin-Capelle with the same witness as Neeltjen. Anneken was already 35 year old at the time of her marriage, and she had no known children. After Arien’s death, recorded on 23 September 1681 in ‘s-Grevelduin-Capelle, Anneken took a second husband, Jost Smits, in 1684. Anneke’s death is recorded in Vrijhoeve-Capelle on 7 April 1699.

Ancestor Score 2020: 79.7% in the 10th generation

Inspired by the Ancestor Score of other blogs and GeneaNet's definition, I generated my first one in February 2016. Since then I haven't just been able to increase my score, I also had to remove a whole line of wrong ancestors***. I could partially replace them by already existing ancestors - due to inbreeding among my ancestors, which didn't increase the score either. Therefore, I decided to generate a new in-between ancestor score in August 2018 to be able to continue this series of posts. In 2019 I continued the Ancestor Score Series of posts.

Geneanet defines the Ancestor Score as 

comparing the number of possible ancestors with 
the number of identified ancestors on a 10-generation report”. 

My Ancestor Score at generation 10 in the period 1600-1740 is 79.7%. It will never reach the 100%, because some cousins intermarried in generation 7. The total number of my “known” ancestors - starting with my parents (generation 2) - is currently 4618.

   **) The Bandwidth of a generation is determined by the earliest and latest known birth or baptism date within that generation.
  ***) I have many ancestors in places like Sint Anthoniepolder, 's-Gravendeel, Wieldrecht and Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht, where pre-1800 baptism records are missing.
