In New Amsterdam Tryn built a house on Pearl Street. The West Indies Company owed her money when she died. Her daughters attempts to claim it establish the time of her death.

In 1643 he was on the council at Albany, 1644 president of the board, 1657, 1658, 1661, 1662 magistrate. A surgeon, he added to his occupations by becoming a fur trader and the captain of a sloop. In 1644 Indians burned Abraham's farm. His wife was missing for several days but was apparently recovered as the youngest child was born the next year. The two wives, because of their similar names, have often been treated as one. Tryntje Jochems was the daughter of Jochem Ghijsen of Amsterdam. Katrina Wessels was the daughter of Jochem Wessels of Albany.

Notes: Family also known as Schermerhorn. Quote from aforementioned book follows: "Jacob Janse (Schermerhorn), was born in 1622, in Waterland, Holland, it is said; though in 1654 his father was living in Amsterdam. He came to Beverwyck quite early where he prospered as a brewer and a trader. In 1648 he was arrested at Fort Orange by Governor Stuyvesant's order, on a charge of selling arms and ammunition to the Indians. His books and papers were seized, and he himself was removed a prisoner to Fort Amsterdam, where he was sentenced to banishment for five years with the confiscation of all his property. By the interferance of some leading citizens, the first part of the sentence was struck out, but his property was totally lost. These proceedings against Schermerhorn formed subsequently a ground of a complaint against Stuyvesant to the States General. [O'Callaghan's Hist. N.Y. I.,441] He made his will May 20, 1688, and soon after died at Schenectady. His estate was large for the times, amounting to 56,882 guilders. His wife was Jannetje Segers, dau. of Cornelis Segerese Van Voorhoudt." My line is through Jacob's daughter Jannetje Schermerhorn who married Caspar Springsteen b.c. 1670 at Boswyck, L.I. the son of Melchior Sringsteen and Gertruyd Bartholds (Bartels).

Immigrant's Children:
Elsje d. after 1704 m.1. Pieter Cornelissen Vanderveen 1652 New York, NY m.2. Jacob Leisler 11 Apr 1663 New York, NY Notes: Thymen was a ship's carpenter for the West Indies Company. He may have come to New Amsterdam with Director Twiller. He did not find favor with Kieft, the following director, who with the council admonished him for faulty repairs. Thymen replied that if the ships' captains did not tell him of the problems and the council did not fund the repairs, what could they expect? Thymen's home was on the corner of Pearl and Wall Streets. In 1643 he sold the property to Jan Janse Damen, apparently planning to move to Long Island, but he died before he could do so. His widow then married Dirck Corneliszen Van Wensveen by whom she had Cornelis bp. 17 Mar 1647. Marritje's third husband was Govert Loockermans by whom she had Jacob b. 17 Mar 1652. The story of the feud over Marritje's estate is covered with very interesting analysis of Dutch and English inheritance customs and law in "According to Holland Custome" by Firth Haring Fabend, Halve Maen, Spring 1994.

Notes: Provost says Barent's father was probably Gerret Hendricksen who immigrated to New Amsterdam from Zwolle in "St. Jean Baptist" 1661. Barent was a tailor. He was one of 22 men selected to establish Bushwyck in 1660. He was a drummer in the militia 1662, poor master in 1664, magistrate 1665, constable 1667. In 1671 Barent made a gift deed for his children by Grietje which noted her poor health. She probably died soon after. Grietje's father, Dirck Volkertszen, was one of the guardians for the children. Barent and his second wife, Marritje, moved to the Dutch settlements in Delaware about 1676 but had returned to New York by 1683 where they were living with Femmetje and her husband. Then they returned to Bushwyck. Grietje's first husband was Jan Nagel and their child, Fytie bp. 23 Apr 1651 NY m. Jan de Consiely.

In summary, Dirck and Christina lived with her mother and stepfather, Jan Janse Damen, until Damen threw them out. After that they lived one step ahead of their creditors with the help of their brothers-in-law. In 1657 Dirck was charged with stabbing a cooper over a game of dice. They moved to Bushwyck about 1643 but Indian attacks sent them back to the city. They returned to Buskwyck about 1660. In 1663 they were fighting with a neighbor who charged that Christina called him an awful name. In 1668 Dirck refused to report the amount of land within his fences and the New Amsterdam court instructed the constable to reprimand or fine Dirck if he should be unmannerly. In spite of his irrascability, he seems to have been a citizen of some note in Bushwyck.

Notes: Cornelius and Ariaentje were probably married in the Netherlands. Ariaentje was an orphan who inherited some money from an aunt. The inheritance established her home as Rengerskerk on the Island of Schouwen where the Swits first stayed when they came to the Netherlands. After Cornelius' father was killed by an Indian in 1641, he took over the family farm in Harlem. Cornelius was in debt to the West Indies Company and working to pay it off when he, too, was killed in an Indian attack. The farm was destroyed and Ariaentje and the children were captured. After their ransom, the family was hard pressed to make ends met. Ariaentje married Albert Leonards in 1656. In 1663 her oldest son, Claes, was accidently shot and killed by his neighbor in Albany, Philip Hendrickse Brouwer. In 1664 Ariaentje petitioned the West Indies Company for cancellation of the family's debt in exchange for their farm. In 1690, during the raid on Schnectady, Ariaentje's son, Isaac, and a grandson, Cornelis, were captured and taken to Canada. Isaac escaped and Cornelis was released soon after.

Notes: Cornelis Maessen Van Buren came to New Netherland twice, both times under 3-year contracts to Kiliaen van Rensselaer. The first visit lasted 1631-1634. The second visit, begun 1636 saw him accompanied by his new bride and their first child was born aboard ship. From the time of his arrival about 17 April 1637, his family occupied a farm on or near Papscanee Island. He and his wife died on the same day in 1648 leaving their children in the care of a fellow immigrant. His third son took the name Bloomendaal (now Bloomingdale) as there did not exist a confirmed use of surnames among Dutch families until the advent of the British control over the colony encourage the adoption of surnames.
