Note from Lorine:

From "New Netherland Connections". The 85th query published in 1996 was about Laurens Duyts, and here is the first paragraph of the reply subsequently published in the May 1998 issue:

"1996-85 [Information about Laurens Duyts aka Laurens Grootschoe] Though Laurens' surname indicates that he or his forebears once resided in Germany, in the New World Laurens was considered to be a Dane. Here is the English translation of the marriage intentions that were proclaimed in Amsterdam on 28 August 1638: Laurens Dyijs from Noortstrant, a laborer living at the Brouwersgracht, aged 26 years, with Ytgie Jans from Amsterdam, aged 18 years. This record was located by Pim Nieuwenhuis, and he comments further that Noordstrand was most probably the present-day Nordstrand, an island off shore from Husum in Sleswig Holstein."

Further notes from Lorine:

According to the Register of the Provincial Secretary 1639 Vol 1:

21 July 1639. Lease. Jonas Bronk to Peter Andriessen and Lourens Duyts, passengers in the ship Fire of Troy, of a plantation on the mainland, opposite the flatland of Manhate [sic] to raise tobacco and maize [full details p. 141 vol. I]

There is also quite a scandal involving Laurens as recorded in 1658 in the Council Minutes Vol. VIII, Dutch Manuscripts:

18 Nov. Order for the examination of Geesje Jansen, accused of having had illicit intercourse with Laurens Duyts [full details p. 1038 vol. VIII]

25 Nov. Sentence of whipping and banishment prounced against Ytie Janse for living in adultery with Jan Parcel, alias Botcher [full details p. 1049 vol. VIII]

25 Nov. Sentence.

VIII]

25 Nov. Sentence John Parcell, alias Botcher, of Huntingdonshire, Eng for living in adultery with Ytie Jans, to be placed at the whipping post with two rods in his arm, to be banished for 20 years, and pay a fine of 100 guilders with costs [full details p. 1053 vol. VIII]

25 Nov. Sentence Geesie Jansen, for living in adultery with Laurens Duyts, to be conducted to the whipping post, and fastened thereto, the upper part of her body being stripped naked, and two rods placed in her hand, to be afterwards conducted, in that wise, outside the city gates, and banished the province the term of 30 years, with costs [full details p. 1055 vol.
