A son of Jan Pietre Hendrick DeWees, Adriaen Hendricksz DeWees was born in Beverwijk, circa 1595. He was first a shoemaker, and later one of the first brokers in art, registered 1 Oct 1639. (in Amsterdam, I presume). He married Hillegont Goverts in 1615 in Beverwijk. They had at least two children: Henrick Adriaensz DeWees (1615-1679, married Adriaentje Jans in 1640), and Catharina who married engraver Jan de Visscher in 1657.

His residences, per Oude Kerk web site:
In the year 1656: at the Heerenlogement (Heeren means gentlemen, logement means inn)
In the year 1657: Heilige Wegspoort (at the time of marriage daughter Catharina to engraver Jan de Visscher)
In the year 1674: at the time of his death, "in a little house in the Oudemanshuijspoort"
(Oudemanshuispoort literally means old man's home gate)
