Here is Sjoerd's and Baukje's wedding registration:

Huwelijksakte Ferwerderadeel, 1857
Man: Sjoerd Jans Posthumus
Vrouw: Baukje Pieters van Vliet
Datum: 11 april 1857 Akte nr. 8

Maybe Sjoerd's birth:

Geboorteakte Schoterland
Aangiftedatum 27 december 1830
Sjoerd Jans Posthumus

This works, but this Sjoerd appears to have died unmarried:

Overlijdensakte Schoterland, 1884
Aangiftedatum 18 juli 1884, akte nr. 149
Sjoerd Jans Posthumus, overleden 16 juli 1884, oud 53 jaar, ongehuwd

Do you know his birthday? There was another Sjoerd Jans born in Friesland close to 1830, in case you were just estimating:

Geboorteakte Westdongeradeel, 1826
Aangiftedatum 5 augustus 1826, blad nr. 53
Sjoerd Posthumus, geboren 5 augustus 1826
zoon van Jan Sjoerds Posthumus en Zwaantje Reins Posthumus

I think this is Baukje's birth:

Geboorteakte Leeuwarderadeel
Aangiftedatum 11 maart 1831, blad nr. 31
Baukje van Vliet, geboren 10 maart 1831
dochter van Pieter Alberts van Vliet en Lieuwkje Wobbes Boonstra

So you see the fathers' and grandfather's names used for the children: Jan, Pieter and Albert.
