Significantly, the earliest mention is Cornelis Jansz alias Slecht te Woerden on 25 October 1577, nine years earlier than all save one record of confrontation between the Slecht family and the Bailiff of Woerden, possibly indicating an origin for this surname other than parochial pejorative; The earliest record of confrontation occurred on 9 August 1562, which pertained to the brother of Cornelis Jansz alias Slecht te Woerden, namely Gerrit Jan Pieter Florisz, later called Gerrit Slechten on 14 July 1609.
