Birth certificate of Geertje Westland

Birth certificate of Geertje Westland, my 3rd great-grandmother, born on the 4th of this [November 1827] at ten pm, here [in Huizen] in house number 122, daughter of Joost Lambertszoon Westland, fisherman, 36, and Jantje Smit, no occupation, 33, spouses, living here [in Huizen] in house number 122.

The certificate is signed by the registrar and by two witnesses, the father was unable to write his name.

Note the middle name of the father: Lambertszoon, son of Lambert (so can you guess the name of Geertje’s paternal grandfather?).
