Re: Jans Claesen Romeyn ( Romayne, Romine, Romaeyn)

That will be difficult. The registers of baptisms and marriages start after the Eighty-Year War (1568-1648). Mostly you must search in notary documents and tax registers.
In Amsterdam: they begin about 1700. See: https://stadsarchief.amsterdam.nl/english/archives_database/genealogy/doopregisters2/zoek/index.en.html
Be aware, that in Dutch the name is also written Romeijn and Romijn.
The name Jans is female; the name Jan is a male. In fact the word Jans for a male means ‘of Jan’. So, Jans (male) is a genitive. Christoffel Jans means Christoffel of Jan. So, Jan is the father.
Jan Claessen Romeijn means: Jan, son of Nicolaas Romeijn.
I give you some sites to search; but keep in mind: most baptismal and marriage registers start after 1648, mostly about 1700.
