Maarten Cornelis Hofstede was christened in Woubrugge on 10 March 1737. He died in Moordrecht on 28 October 1775. On 5 February 1762 he married with Aaltje de Vos. Aaltje was christened in Zuid-Waddinxveen on 1 January 1741, daughter Daniel Willems de Vos and Maria Jans Radder. From information supplied by Marina G. Hofstede it appears that Aaltje de Vos, widow of M. Hofstee, was born in Zuid-Waddinxveen on 22 December 1738, but there is no child born to a de Vos on that date in Waddinxveen. This same census also has the dates of Aaltje's son and daughter-in-law incorrect. Most of the following information has been supplied by Marina G. (Ineke) Hofstede and she is still looking for more information. Some of the information has also been supplied by Hendrik Johannes Hofsteede (1934). The family of Maarten Cornelis and Aaltje must have been quite well-to-do because when Maarten was buried in Moordrecht it is noted that both bells tolled once at a cost of F9.17.0 and for his daughter Maria, both bells, twice at a cost of F12.2.0.

Cornelis married with Maartje Admiraal who was baptized in Nieuwe Wetering on 9 April 1767. She was daughter of Cornelis Admiraal and Marijtje van Leeuwen. A census of Delft gives the birth date of Cornelis as 23 February 1763 and of Maartje as 12 April 1763. Cornelis lived in Delft until 1838 when he returned to Woubrugge. He lived and died in the 'bejaardentehuis', home for the aged at C15. His death registration indicates the name of his wife as Aaltje Admiraal. The birth of his children indicates mother's name is Maartje. At the time of Maartje's death on 20 March 1831 in Delft, Cornelis is a shipbuilder's hand (Scheeptimmermansknecht). When son Maarten was born the family resides on the Molenstraat.
