There must be another daughter Sara. Mind, Trijntje = Tryntie = Catharina.

Search yourself.
The name: Abraham Martens Klock = Abraham son of Ma(a)rten Klock.
Trijntie Alberts = Trijntie daughter of Albert.
The name Trijntie indicates the west-southern part of the Netherlands (Zeeland and province of Holland); other Dutch provinces would write in that time Trijntje (western part) or Trineke (eastern and southern part).
As far I can find, the name Klock (not De Klock) appears in that time in the towns of Pernis, Spijkenisse, Den Haag, Scheveningen, Rotterdam. That is the south-west of the Netherlands. In Vlaanderen, the name is mostly De Klock.
