      • John WIlliam Workman (the Dutch form of his name being Jans William Woertman) died in Amsterdam, Holland, some time before the year 1647. Little is known of him except that he was married and had a family. It is believed that he was an
        emigrant from England, comming to Holland as a result of religious persecution during the time of the Puritan upheavals. In Holland, John seemingly integrated into the social and religious way of life of the people there and his family adopted
        their customs so completely so that during the time of their emigrations, they were known mainly as sons, daughters, of wife of John. In church records the patronymic pattern was followed almost completely so that John's son, Richard, is
        recorded as Dirck Jansen very frequently. As early as the year 1628, Jans WIlliam Woertman had married Harmtje (Hannah, an unusual name among the Dutch) and they were the parents of at least three children born in Amsterdam, Holland.
