Records of the Reformed Dutch Church in New Amsterdam/New York - Marriages

Marriage Book of the Register of the Persons who are herin recorded, and who were married here or outside the city of New York from the 11th Dec. 1639

Source: The New York Genealogical and Biographical Record published 1890 and 1940


  • New York was New Amsterdam until 1674
  • Researchers in this time period should also familiarize themselves with common Dutch phrases used in Baptismal, Marriage and death records. The serious researcher will also need to be very familiar with Dutch naming systems and patronymics
  • Remarks within square brackets [ ], are Lorine's own notations and research. The names are for the most part, in patronymic form. The actual surname the family may have taken, would not have developed for some years. If known, I have indicated the family name which this individual or his/her descendants eventually took.
  • Remember that spelling was largely phonetic in this time period - and your ancestor may be found under a variety of names (patronymics) and spellings ..... so... be creative! In these early records the use of "Van" is not usually part of the surname, but is intended as "from" showing the place of origin of the individual.

Understanding these records:

From 27 August 1673 on, the first date is the date the parties registered their intent to marry. The last date is the date of the actual marriage. Example:

"den 3 May. Willem Heyer en Catalyntie Mol den 26 May"

"den 3 May" means Willem and Catalyntie registered on the 3 May of that year. "den 26 May" is the actual marriage date.

dicto means that entry occured in the same month as the preceeding entry (the one above it). If the preceeding entry also uses "dicto", keep reading up until you find a month. Example:

"den 3 May. Willem Heyer en Catalyntie Mol, j.d. Van N. Yorck, den 26 May"
"den 28 dicto. James Spencer en Maria Carlee met een licentie den 28 dicto."

Here we see that James Spencer and Maria Carlee registered their intent to marry on 28 May (as per the entry before theirs)

eodem means the entry occured on the same day as the one preceeding. Example: In the following three entries we see that Andries Holst registered his intent to marry on the same day as Francois de Fenne. Francois' entry uses "den 6 dicto" so we must read up to find the first preceeding entry with a month - and that is Delivery Stantely with the month of Sept. Thus Francois' entry is 6 Sept. as is Andries'.

"den 2 Sept. Delivery Stantely, en Engelje Boeckhout, Getrouwt den 2 Octob."
"den 6 dicto. Francois de Fenne, en Margareta Blanck, Getrouwt den 9 Octob."
"Eodem. Andries Holst, en Cornelia Van Tienhoven Getrouwt den 23 Septemb."
