The son of Pieter Willems Verberne and Louisa van Scharenberg left Texel and settled in Leiden. He got married to Adriana Cornelia van Hulst. Willem Pieters worked as a head master at a school in Hazerswoude, Zuid-Holland, Netherlands. He was a bully and a very stringent man. After about 8 or 9 years he left the school and people seemed to be happy that he did.
