Like most geneologies that date back 300 years, there are a number of versions on Jan Jansen. In my "version", I tried to resolve the inconsistencies between the other versions and the timeline.
I'm afraid I didn't keep very good notes regarding my references. Two web sites that you may find useful are:
Also, the book, Pirate Utopias, has information on Jan Jansen. Whether he ever visited his son in America is unsubstantiated speculation, but Anthony did seem to have enough money to be a rather wealth landowner, holding several properties in New Amsterdam.
Another book that might interest you is an historical novel about Anthony's wife called The Drowning Room.
If I come across more of my reference material, I will pass it along to you.
