uncle Cornelis Jacobs van den Berch married Elisabeth Heyndrics van Waert

November 23, 1630

uncle Cornelis Jacobs van den Berch, living on Oosteinde, married Elisabeth Heyndrics van Waert, from Leiden, in Leiden. The only two Delft records are betrothals, one at each church, at the end of November. If they followed the common pattern, they were married two weeks later.

They lived in Benthuizen, where he was sherrif (schout). Around 1646, his nephew Antony Leeuwenhoek, his sister Cornelia's son, lived with him as an apprentice for perhaps a couple of years.
