A veer or veerpont is a ferry.
If you can’t find a person, try looking in the records on the other side of the ferry. People living on one side of the river may have normally used a ferry to go to church, but if the ferry was out during the winter or bad weather they might have had to go to another church to have their children baptized. People could have used the ferry to go to a market on the next island, and perhaps met a spouse there.
If your ancestor was a ferryman, you may find an appointment by the local government in town records.
