Den Houttuyn

The list of the passengers on "Den Houttuyn" which sailed June 1642 is published on page 605 of the Van Renselaer Bowier Manuscripts.

Van Rensselaer Bowier manuscripts, being the letters of Kiliaen Van Rensselaer, 1630-1643, and other documents relating to the colony of Rensselaerswyck. Tr. and ed. by A.J.F. van Laer, archivist. With an introductory essay by Nicolaas de Roever, late archivist of the city of Amsterdam; tr. by Mrs. Alan H. Strong. Albany, University of the state of New York, 1908. 909 p. facsims. 23 cm.

Kiliaen van Rensselaer asked Domine Johannes Megapolensis

"His reverence will please look after my people and goods who in the name of God now go over in the ship "den Houttuyn".

The persons who sail are the following:

  • Domine Johannes Megapolensis
  • Machtelt Willems, his wife
  • Hillegont, Dirrick, Jan, and Samuel, his children
  • Abraham Staes, surgeon [See Lorine's further research notes below]
  • _______ _______, his servant
  • Evert Pels, beer brewer
  • _______ _______, his wife
  • _______ _______, his servant
  • Cornelis Lambertsen van Doorn
  • Jochim Kettelheun
  • Johan Helms van Barlt [editor says Barlt is in Schleswig-Holstein]
  • Johan Carstensen van Barlt
  • Juriaen Bestvael (sic!) van Luijderdorp
  • Claes Jansen van Waelwijck
  • Paulus Jansen van Geertruijdenbergh
  • Hans Vos van Badens
  • Juriaen Pauwelsen van Sleswyck

Written in the margin of the letter book were 3 additional names:

  • Hendrick Albertsz van Londen, 29 years old [see Den Harinck 1639]
  • Geertruijt Dries van Doesburch, his wife, 23 years old
  • Hendrick Dries, 21 years old, her brother

It is to be remembered that the said Hendrick Albertsen for his three, Abraham Staes for his two, Evert Pels for his three, must pay the skipper, Adriaen Dircksen, for their board in the same manner as all the other freemen, but that board of the farm hands is charged to me.

N.B. The bookkeeper in the colony must regularly see to it that the board of the freemen is charged to their account, as Director Kieft sometimes charges it with that of other people in one lump to the patroon..."

New Netherland Ships Passenger Lists Project
I've started reconstructing ships' passenger lists from various source (see below for details) and will be providing these lists online as I complete them. In some cases, I've been able to reconstruct names for a ship list that has never been published before! In other cases, I've been able to add names to previously published lists. This is an Olive Tree exclusive.

This is a huge project, one I am working on alone, and I will complete it as time permits. If you would like to help Olive Tree bring such databases to the Internet for all to use FREELY, please read about the two ways you can help. With a little expenditure of time or money on your part, you can help make this project (and others) a reality.

Lorine's Research Notes With Sources: I reconstructed the names of those sailing on various ships from the following sources. Please note that not every source was used to reconstruct every ship. I have indicated which sources were used for each individual:

  1. Abstracts from Notarial Documents in the Amsterdam Archives by Pim Nieuwenhuis published in New Netherland Connections in series Vol. 4:3,4; Vol. 5:1-3 (hereafter NNC)
  2. Early Immigrants to New Netherland 1657-1664 from The Documentary History of New York (hereafter EINN)
  3. Settlers of Rensselaerswyck 1630-1658 in Van Rensselaer Bowier Manuscripts (hereafter VRB)
  4. E. B. O'Callaghan's Calendar of Historical Manuscripts in the Office of the Secretary of State, Albany NY (hereafter CHM)
  5. New World Immigrants: List of Passengers 1654 to 1664 edited by Michael Tepper (hereafter NWI)
  6. Emigrants to New Netherland by Rosalie Fellows Bailey, , NYGBR; vol 94 no 4 pp 193-200 (hereafter ENN)
  7. De Scheepvaart en handel van de Nederlandse Republiek op Nieuw-Nederland 1609-1675 unpublished thesis by Jaap Jacobs [hereafter JJ][Olive Tree Genealogy database]
  8. The records of New Amsterdam from 1653 to 1674 [hereafter RNA] [an online book from Ancestry.com]

From Lorine's Research: We can also add to this list:
