I desperately need some help. I am researching the Bender family tree and getting nowhere fast!! All that I have at this stage is: Johanna Catriena Bender married Frans (Rijkse) Paling on 24 December 1775 in Woerden. Utrecht, Nederlands Hervormd scan 597.
Unfortunately I can't/read understand the scan. Is she from The Hague??? Any help would be SO MUCH appreciated!
Many thanks in advance.

Woerden en Johanna Catriena

trouwt den 17 decemb(er) 1775
Er is aen haar gegeven haar
attestatie om te 's Haage
of elders te mogen trouwen
den 24 december 1775.
[Frans Paling, (previously unmarried) young man from Woerden, and Catriena Johanna Bender, (previously unmarried) young woman from 'Poutspak' in Hessen-Darmstadt, currently both living in The Hague, gave notice of their marriage on the 17th of December 1775. They were given a certificate of attestation to be married in The Hague or elsewhere on the 24th of December 1775.]
i.e. she was from 'Poutspak' in Hessen-Darmstadt.

That seems too dissimilar. Pretty much only the initial P matches there.
I think the placename will end in -bach.

Indeed, the only place which seems to somewhat match Pontspak phonetically is Butzbach. In fact, it might be that the entry says Poutspak instead of Pontspak.
At least Putzbach or Putzpach is a fairly regular variant of Butzbach, and Butzbach was part of Hessen-Darmstadt at the time.

Looking for this marriage in The Hague I came across another marriage of possibly her sister (or other relative):
"Den 31 december 1775 Johan Theodorus Scheeffer, j.m. geb. te Essen, gewoond hebbende te Haarlem, en nu te Amsterdam, met Johannetta Christina Bender, j.d. geb. te Boetsbach in het Hessen-Damse, en wonende alhier."
Notice of the same marriage given in Amsterdam:

Ah, so, there it's Poutsbach:
(Den 10e december 1775)
"Frans Paling, j.m. geb. en wonende te Woerden, met Johanna Catharina Benden, j.d. geb. te Poutsbach, onder Hessen-Darmstad, woonende alhier."
[Frans Paling, young man born and living in Woerden, with Johanna Catharina Benden, young woman, born in Butzbach in Hessen-Darmstadt, living here.]
I'm emending the reading of the entry recorded in Woerden to Poutspak.
