In 1898, Garret E. de Wees, claiming to be a native of Zaandam, Holland, gave the following history: "In 1563 there was born in Dortrecht, Holland, Jan Pietre, the only son of his parents, who died when he was very young. He was adopted by a family who gave him the surname of de Wees which being anglicized means the Orphan, thus originating the name of de Wees, or later Dewees." It looks reasonable that such should be the case, as it was customary in those days to give surnames according to the avocation or circumstances in which one was placed, thus Jan Pietre, the orphan, became Jan Pietre de Wees.
