New Amsterdam (New York City) New York Reformed Dutch Church Baptisms 1639

In memory of Ted Brassard 1930 ~ 2001

Ted was the creator of Ties That Bind The Chains of Life, a webpage devoted to his beloved hobby of genealogy. The first child of Theodore Brassard and Ellen Therese Perkins, Ted was born in Fulton, N.Y. on May 1, 1930. Sadly, Ted died Aug. 23 2001 after a 21 month battle with cancer.

Ted was the first person to transcribe and place the baptismal records of the New Amsterdam (New York) Reformed Dutch Church online. Ted worked very hard to complete this task so that all researchers could freely access these records. Ted was my inspiration for adding the marriage records for this same church as a complementary set of records to the task he laboured over.

Ted was a diligent researcher and his webpage was used by many. The genealogy community has lost a generous and kind hearted man in Ted. The following records were Ted's labour of love, and are placed on The Olive Tree Genealogy with the permission of Ted's wife, Pat.

Ted's Notes:

This is the first of a series of files on the baptisms at the Reformed Dutch Church of New Amsterdam. Accent marks on names have been left out for simplicity so that the data is acceptable to all computer platforms and no one will get those funny little squares or squiggles on the screen. Ufortunately many of the records I had concerning data prior to 1639 are missing, lost, or destroyed after all these years (it is about 20 years ago that I copied most of them). So I only have six baptisms for 1639.

The following is a list of Ministers of this church, their births, deaths, and lengths of service:

  • Jonas Michaelius, b. 1577, served from 1628 to about 1633
  • Everadus Bogardus, b. ca. 1607, d. 1647, served from 1633 to 1647
  • Johannes Backerus, served from 1647 to 1649
  • Joannes Megapolensis, b. 1603, d. 1670, served from 1649 to 1670
  • Samuel Drisius, b. 1620, d. 1673, served from 1652 to 1673
  • Wilhelmus Van Nieuwenhuysen, b. 1645, d. 1681, served from 1671 to 1681
  • Henricus Selyns, b. 1636, d. 1701, served 1682 to 1701
  • Gualterus du Bois, b. 1666, d. 1751, served from 1699 to 1751
  • Henricus Boel, b. 1689, d. 1754, served from 1713 to 1754
