I suppose to you searching genlias (

Source       Parish register - Baptism
Archive location       Streekarchief Voorne-Putten en Rozenburg
General       Item number: 10
Place: Brielle
Congregation: Brielle Kleine of Sint Jacobskerk
Type of source: Doopboek
Denomination: NDG
Date of baptism: 02-02-1689
Child       Johanna
Father       Claes Jansz Romeijn
Mother       Lijsbeth Jans
Witness       Leentje Jans

You see the father: Claes Jansz Romeijn.
That is for our times: Nicolaas son of Jan Romeijn.
In those old times the first son was named with the name of the grandfather father-side. In my family the string is: Willem-Theo-Willem-Theo-Willem-Theo etc. My eldest brother is Theo, my father Willem, my grandfather Theo etc.
In this case the string of the eldest sons is:
Father Claes Jansz Romeijnin 1689 (may be married in 1688 or 1687). Born probably 1659.
His father Jansz Romeijn married about 1658; his father would be named in the string Jansz Claes Romeijn and born about 1629. Is that the Romeijn you started your question with? In that case, his father might be named Claes Jansz Romeijn.
In that case, this family in this box is your family. Now we know the town (probably), but we have an hypothesis and thus a start for further research.
