    Notes 
    • The name Duercant, in its variety of spelling, is mentioned in the records as early as 1418, for on 27 February of that year Willem Duercant attaches his own seal to a document in behalf of the sheriff of "Gherwerscoep" (about 4 miles N.E. of Woerden in the province of Utrecht) who possibly had no seal of his own. This seal has Willem b. Duercant's name on it, and shows a fess and in chief a label with three points. During the following century another Willem Duercant is mentioned on 6 June 1519 a a landgenoot (landowner)in the landcourt district of Naaldwijk, 12 miles W.N.w. of Rotterdam, in a charter in the same collection as above. And about 50 years later there must have been again another Willem Duercant, whose son Dirck Willemsz. Duercant (the father of Lion Gardiner's wife) was in 1603 schepen at Woerden. According to the Orphan Chamber record Willem Duercant had tow other sons besides Dirck, viz. Pieter and Elbert Duercant.

      The parents of Lion Gardiner's belonged to the magistrate families of the small city of Woerden, at that time in the Province of Utrecht, at present in South Holland. Dirck was a schepen there in 1603 but died prior to 7 October 1607. His wife Haechje Bastiaens had a brother Pons Gerritsz.
