SHIPS PASSENGER LISTS
DE PEREBOOM (THE PEAR TREE)
Sailed from Amsterdam July 1654, arrived New Amsterdam 17 Dec. 1654
|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:

F1From research of Cor Snabel:
In 1654 about 27 or 28 children
arrived on the "Peereboom". Only one name is known that of
sixteen year old Hendrick Claesz. was assigned to Lodewijck
Jongh on 16 Nov. 1654.
FOONTNOTE: Email from Nora Probasco June 2011
I have located the date De Pereboom arrived in New Netherland per the info below:
The Early History of the Jews in New York, 1654-1664, Vol. 2, pp. 3-4
[Footnote 4] N. Y. Colonial MSS., Vol. XIV, p. 83, in N. Y. State Library... Mr. A. J. F. van Laer, the archivist in charge of manuscript records at the New York State Library, to whom thanks are due for many courtesies in the preparation of this paper, in a letter to the writer in reference to the date of sailing of the Peartree, wrote as follows:
"The date, July 8, 1654, in the entries of which I sent you copies in my letter... refers to the time when the ship de Pereboom left Holland...
...Barsimson apparently arrived here [New Amsterdam] August 22, 1654, when it appears that his passage money of thirty-six guilders were paid...
