Statement of responsibility note
Although the names R. en J .Ottens appeasr on the map, the date 1704, which appears would indicate that the work was actually completed by the father Joachim Ottens. The brother's name was propabaly added at a later date as they formally went into partnership in October 1726 (Philip D. Burdem, The Mapping of North America II, 2007. p. 405)
