Sy Scholfield quotes "Barthold Hinrich Brockes" by Eckart Klessmann (Ellert & Richter, 2003), p. 13: "Aus dieser Ehe gingen fünf Kinder hervor: vier Töchter, von denen nur die 1681 geborene Anna Elisabeth das frühe Kindesalter überlebte, und Barthold Hinrich, der am 22. September 1680 zur Welt kam, einem Mittwoch; „ein wenig über ein Viertel nach 1 Uhr zu Mittage"."

Translation: This marriage produced five children: four daughters, of whom only 1681-born Anna Elisabeth survived early childhood, and Barthold Hinrich, who came into the world on September 22, 1680, a Wednesday; "A little over a quarter past 1 o'clock noon".

Note: 22/9/1680 OS was a Wednesday.
