If anyone has information regarding the ancestry of Theunis Thomaszen QUICK or any other information about him or his wife Beliktgen, or the names of the wives of Frans QUICK [#4] or Jacob QUICK Sr. [#5], please contact me.

This surname may also be spelled KWIK or CUYCK in some records and sources.

Based on Dutch naming practices, Theunis Thomaszen QUICK's father was probably named Thomas QUICK. I have seen many secondary sources that claim a Thomas is the father of Theunis Thomaszen QUICK. However, none of them give primary evidence.
