Notes: Adriaen resided in Brazil in the West India Co. Colony as early as 1649, but he left there in 1654. He was on Staten Island NY by 1655 and was the representative of Baron Hendrick van der Capellen.
In 1655 during The Peach Tree War, the colony on Staten Island was destroyed and Adriaen and his wife and 5 children were captured by natives from Hackensack. Who were these five children????

Adriaen was released in Oct. 1655 and his wife and children a short time later. They returned to Staten Island to live but by 1656 he was ill. Between 1657 and 1668 he and Clara had 3 more children - who were they??? He eventually left Staten Island for Bergen NJ and was there as early as 1665 when he was an ensign in the Bergen Burgher Guard. On 18 Feb. 1677 he was buried at Bergen.

I am seeking Adriaen's ancestry in the Netherlands or any additional info on his years in Brazil. --------------------------------------------------

Jan Janszen, who eventually acquired the surname of Postmael from the occupation of mail carrier, according to a family tradition, lived in Harlem where he leased a farm from Laurens Jansen on April 23, 1679. (History of Harlem by Riker, footnote page 388).

Jan Janszen alias Postmael remained in Harlem until 1683 or 1684. At that time he removed to Kingston where his wife's family resided, and lived there until his death a few years later. His name is found "Postma" on the Kingston records. His widow married again, Thomas Ennis, and they had two children baptized at Kingston.

NOTE: I am seeking information on Elizabeth, wife of Abraham, Jan Janszen's son. On October 24, 1708 at Kingston DRC, Abraham and Elizabeth were sponsors at the baptism of Abraham, third child of his brother Jan Post, Junior, and Cornelia Isselsteen, and a torn page in the record leaves the name Elizabeth Van Dans------ incomplete. It possibly could be Van Dansich, as mentioned in the Passenger Lists under date of January 20, 1664, but found in no other early record as a family name.

Some of this POST family line did reside in Bergen County, NJ and is not to be confused (but could easily be) with the POSTS who descend from Capt. Adrian POST. --------------------------------------------------

In 1662 he was residing at Bergen (Now Jersey City, NJ) In 1694 his widow sold the land at Bergen to pay his debts. His son Hans along with his bother Jan were part of the orginal Patentees of the Acquackanonk Purchase which included what is now Passiac, Paterson and Clifton, NJ. --------------------------------------------------

Notes From Lorine: I believe you will find that Janet T. Reimer's article "The Early Spier Family" as published in The Genealogical Magazine of New Jersey Jan. 1980 vol. 55, Number 1, is a terrific resource for this family.

Be aware though that in her list of children for Hendrick Spier & Magdalena Hans/Jans, the inclusion of a possible daughter Tryntie bp. 12 July 1654 as found in the NY RDC records, is not correct. This Trynite is an Oosteroom.

The ancestor of the Oosteroom family in New Jersey was Hendrick Janszen. He married Tryntie Lubbertse (born ca 1637 Albany NY) on 4 Dec. 1652 in the Reformed Dutch Church in New York City. His wife Tryntie was the daughter of the immigrant ancestor of the New Jersey Van Blaricom (Blarcom) family - Lubberts Gysbertse, a wheelwright from the town of Blaricom in the Netherlands who came to the colony of Rensellaerswyck in 1634. This Hendrick Janszen and his wife Tryntie had a daughter Tryntje baptised 16 Aug 1654 Reformed Dutch Church in New York City.

The sponsors were Jan Corneliszen BUYS (aka DAMEN) who was married to Tryntie's sister Eybetye, Gysbert Lubbertszen (a brother to Tryntie), and Aeltje Schryvers) Of course DAMEN is my line.

The arrival date you show for Hendrick of 1659 is the date of his second arrival in the New World. His marriage to Magdaleen Jans is found in the records of the Reformed Dutch Church in New York City on 14 Sept. 1652 as such:

"Hendrick Janszen van Aschwaerde in't Stift Bremen en Magdaleen Jans van Swol".

We know that Hendrick was in NY then in 1652.
