These are the six daughters and two sons of Dirck Volckertszen De Noorman and Christina Vigne. The old patronymic system was still observed by most of the Dutch and Scandinavian families in New Amsterdam, so the children's surnames were based on their father's first name. Dirck's children's surnames were variously spelled DIRCKS, DIRCKSE and DIRCKX.
Another tradition, observed in New Netherland and colonial New York and New Jersey, involved the first names given to children: typically, the first two boys and first two girls in a family were named for their grandparents. Dirck and Christina named a daughter after Christina's mother Ariantje, but no (known) children were named for her father. They named their first son Volkert, which under the patronymic system would have been the first name of Dirck's father. We can only guess whether one of the other daughters was named for Dirck's mother.
Dirck's children and grandchildren went in many directions and settled in numerous places. The map located at the middle of this page may help if you're not familiar with the New York region. Many of the placenames on this page are also linked to Google Maps and will appear in a new window.
Grietje DIRCKS m. (1st) Sergeant Jan Hermanszen SCHUTT by 1650. A soldier, he was killed by Indians in 1652. They had one child, Fytie (AKA Phebe), baptized 23 Apr 1651. (Grietje was short for Margrietje or Margaret. It should not be confused with the similar name Geertie, which was Dutch for 'Charity.' There was a 'Geertie Dircks' running around Manhattan and popping up in records during the 1600s. Grietje and Geertie were two unique individuals.)
Fytie "Phebe" SCHUTT...bapt. 23 Apr 1651, m. Jean "Jan" DE CONSIELLE (or DE CONSIELJE/CONSIELLE, later spelled CONSELYEA). [2008: There is still a Conselyea Street in Bushwick.]
Elizabeth CONSELYEA....bapt. in 1677 at the New York DRC, witnessed by Stynte NAGEL and Jan NAGEL. [The former was her mother's half sister. Jan NAGEL is a problem. He was not listed — not even as a stepson — when Grietje's children were named in Orphan Court records after her second husband Jan NAGEL died. Perhaps the listing should have read 'Jurian NAGEL.']
Margaret CONSELYEA.....m. Nicholas (Claas) BOGART (BOGAERT/BOGERT). She may also have m. a John VAN TILBURG, possibly 1st. ["History of Harlem" by John Riker, 1904]
Petrus "Peter" BOGART....m. Marie ROOME
Marie BOGART....m. Andrew VAN TUYL
Margaretta VAN TUYL...m. William METCALF
Pieter CONSELYEA...b. ca. 1688, m. Sarah MILLER
Barbara CONSELYEA....m. Tunis VAN CATS
Johannes VAN COTT....(also seen as VAN KATT)
Losee VAN COTT....14 Nov 1789-29 Sep 1824, b. in Washington, Duchess Co., NY. He died on in Canaan, Columbia, NY. He m. Lovinia Jemima PRATT, and reportedly died from consumption (tuberculosis) at the age of 34.
Lovinia's nephew Parley PRATT, son of her brother Jared PRATT, was one of the early Mormon apostles of Joseph SMITH. The highway route between Salt Lake City and Park City, Utah, runs through Parley's Canyon, which he explored and had named after him. Parley met his demise after he took the wife of one Hector McLEAN of Arkansas as his own 12th wife. Hector tracked them down at a farm near Van Buren, Arkansas, on 13 May 1857. He stabbed Parley in the chest and then shot him in the neck. (Utahns still revere Parley as a martyr. Arkansans had the same sort of feelings about Hector, and did not convict him when he was tried for murder.)
NOTE: Four months later, on September 11, 1857, Utah Mormons practiced their doctrine of "blood atonement" by killing 120 Arkansans in a California-bound wagon train, shortly after their wagons passed through Salt Lake City. The killers included Mormon church leaders and Mormon militia members. A happy rumor circulated in Utah afterward, that persons responsible for Parley's murder were among those slain.
John VAN COTT....7 Sep 1814-18 Feb 1883, b. in Canaan, Columbia Co., NY, died in Salt Lake City, UT. He was born during the War of 1812, and his youngest child would live to witness the next British invasion: Beatlemania!
He married Lucy Lavinia SACKETT (17 Jul 1815-31 Jan 1902, b. at Stephentown, Columbia Co., NY, d. at Salt Lake City, UT) on 15 Sep 1835 at Canaan, NY. Influenced by his cousin Parley PRATT, an early apostle of Joseph SMITH, Lucy and John joined the Mormon church about 1844. They moved to Nauvoo, Illinois in 1846, and was a "captain of ten" in their 1847 emigration on the Oregon Trail. They arrived in the Salt Lake Valley on 25 Sep 1847, although, at the behest of Brigham Young, John went back out on the trail to assist other Mormon emigrants in reaching the Salt Lake valley. He settled near the current South Tenth Street and West Temple Street. John was appointed as the first marshal of Salt Lake City. Five years later was appointed the church's ambassador to Scandinavia, living there from 1852 to 1856 and again from 1859 to 1862, returning on the ship Waldemar. A descendant's site reports that "After his return, he yielded obedience to the law of celestial marriage and took five wives, by whom he became the father of twenty-eight children." His fourth wife, Caroline, was the daughter of his first cousin Anson PRATT and Sarah BARBER. (Another PRATT cousin, Orson PRATT, was an original member of the Twelve Apostles of the Mormon church. He had a brief falling out after Joseph SMITH sent him off to England and then tried to have an affair with Orson's wife.)
In addition to Lucy, his wives included: (2) Jemima MORRIS, 4 Aug 1831 to 23 Mar 1851, born in North Coleford, Gloucestershire, England, died in Salt Lake City, UT (17 years younger); (3) Laura LUND, 26 Feb 1843-1 Dec 1913, born in Amaya, Denmark, died in Salt Lake City, UT (28 years younger); (4) Caroline Amelia PRATT, 20 Jun 1840-10 Oct 1915, born in Detroit, Wayne Co., MI, died in Salt Lake City, UT (26 years younger); and (5) Caroline Lena Cassia ERICKSON, 27 Jun 1833-14 Nov 1901, born at Brevik, Skaraborg, Sweden, died in Salt Lake City, UT (19 years younger). John continued his career in the higher echelons of the LDS church, serving as one of the "First Seven Presidents of Seventies" from 1862 until his death. Twenty six of his children are listed below.

Grietje m. (2nd) Sergeant Jan NAGEL Von Limberg on 27 Sep 1652, and lived with him in a house "on the north side of Hoogh Straet opposite the [City] Hall" — which had been sold to him by one of her father's Scandinavian friends, Claes CARSTENSEN, in 1653. On 4 Feb 1654 she was one of the witnesses, along with her uncle Jan VINGE, at the baptism of sister Magdalena's daughter Marritie. Jan elevated himself to the position of burger on 13 Apr 1657 but died soon after, leaving Grietje to care for three children. On 28 May 1658, the New Amsterdam Orphans' Court recorded: "Appear Abraham Verplanck and Andries De Haas who declare that Grietje Dirck, widow of Jan Nagel, has remarried and has appointed them guardians of children of the aforesaid deceased Jan Nagel and of her former deceased husband Jan Schutt who left a little daughter named Fytje Jans, 7 years old. The two children of marriage with Jan Nagel are a son named Jurrien Jansz Nagel, 5 years old, and a daughter named Styntje [Christina] Janzen Nagel, 2-1/2 years old. Fytje Jans (Schutt) is to receive 150 guilders. The other two each 75 guilders." The Holland Society Year Book, 1901, lists conveyances of land, 1665-1672, including: "Nagel, Jan (widow of) to Asser Levy (Jew)."
Jurian NAGEL, baptized 28 Sept 1653 at the New York DRC, witnessed by "Cornelis Van Tienhoven, Cornelia Hendricksen, Jannetje Eesens." He may have been the Corporal Nagel stationed for 22 months in North Harlem about 1673. ["History of Harlem" by James Riker, 1904.] He lived in "Boswyck" per the records of the Flatbush Reformed Dutch Church when he m. Jannetje PHILLIPS (daughter of Phillip LANGELAN and sister of Annetje PHILLIPS who married his uncle Volkert DIRCKS) on 1 Jan 1679. [The marriage record erroneously called her "Maria" but did let us know she was a "yd of Pynacker, Holland."]
They moved to Manhattan Island soon after marrying. Jannetje became a member of the New York DRC on 25 Aug 1679, a little more than a month before they baptized their first child there. Jurian became a member on 30 May 1683. They were both listed in church records in 1686, when they were reported living on New Street, and again in 1696 when it was reported they had previously removed to Bushwick. They possibly moved by 1694: on 14 Nov 1694 he and former Hoogh Straet neighbor Dorothea CALYER witnessed a baptism at the Brooklyn DRC. The 1698 Census listed him at Bushwick with a wife, five children and five slaves. A 1706 property list reported he owned 95 acres at Bushwick. Jurian's will was dated 2 Dec 1732 and probated 23 May 1738 (copy not found). The executors were his son Jan and son-in-law Andrew STOCKHOLM. It was witnessed by Hendrick VAN DE WATER, Pieter DEWITT, and Abraham LOTT, all of Bushwick. Jurian lived to be about 84, and Jannetje must have lived to at least 80.
Jan NAGEL.....bapt at the New York DRC on 1 Oct 1679 with his mother listed as "Jannetje." He died before 1695, when a later son was also named Jan.
Philip NAGEL...bapt. 29 Mar 1682 at the New York DRC Philip m. Annetje VAN WYCK (bapt. 9 Jul 1682, dau. of Cornelis VAN WYCK and Anna POLHEMUS — who was the dau. of the minister of the New York DRC). In 1706 he owned 13 acres at Bushwick. He was named in his father's 1732 will. The 1738 Census reported his household as 2 males over 10 years, 3 females over 10 years, 2 females under 10 years, and 7 slaves. On 10 May 1741 he sold 40 acres of his property to brother-in-law Andrew STOCKHOLM. In 1742 he was listed as one of the Justices of Bushwick.
Jurian NAGEL....bapt. 18 Apr 1704: "Jurrie. Phillippus Nagel, Annatje [witnesses:] Jurrie Nagel, Annetje Van Wyck." The witnesses must have been his grandparents. Jurian married and had a son and daughter, both born by 1728 (per 1738 Bushwick census). He also had 4 slaves in 1738.
Elizabeth NAGEL...b. or bapt. on 1 Jan 1726 (unconfirmed). She m. Johannes SWART (ca. 1730-1798, son of Jacobus SWART) on 13 Sep 1746 at the Flatbush DRC. They are found in the records of Readington Reformed Dutch Church, Hunterdon Co, NJ, the Tohickon Reformed Dutch Church, Bucks Co, PA, and the Deep Run Presbyterian Church, Bucks Co, PA (1761). About 1770 they moved to Loudoun Co., VA, very near the future Washington, DC.

Neeltje NAGEL...probably b. ca. 1697, d. by 1728. She m. Andrew/Andries STOCKHOLM (1696-20 Feb 1773), whose surname likely indicated his family origins.

They were listed as members of the New York DRC in 1686 [it identified them as living on Brede Weg (Broadway)]. A hundred years later, some of their descendants in Tarrytown, NY were Tories during the American Revolution and subsequently moved to British Canada. Their surname evolved to ORSER, and the branch would later include an Olympic skater named Brian Orser. In the meantime, however, the name took time to evolve from the patronymic system.
Aert AERTSZEN....bapt. 29 Apr 1678 at the New York DRC, witnessed by "Evert Aerentsen, Marrije Hercks."

Grietje m. (3rd) to Barent GERRITSEN Van Swol/Van Flaesbeck, on 11 Mar 1658. A New Amsterdam city map made in 1660 showed Grietje was still living on Hoogh Straet. One of their neighbors on Hoogh had been Jochem CALYER who died in 1658, leaving a widow Magdalena WAEL and five children. She remarried to Gysbert Teunison VAN BARENDT and moved with him to Bushwick. By the following year the family moved across the river to Brooklyn, a small settlement on the Long Island shore south of Greenpoint, where the Calyers and Grietje's family continued their association. Grietje became very feeble in her last years and died by April 1671. Barent, left with the children, remarried on 11 April 1671 to Marritje HENDRICKS. They were listed as members of the New York DRC in 1686. Grietje and Barent had five children.

Magdalena m. (1st) to Cornelius HENDRICKSEN Van Dort, (AKA Cornelius CAPER, the nickname referring to his trade as a pirate or privateer). They had one daughter, Maria, who was baptized as 'Marritje' on 4 February 1654. The witnesses were Jan VIGNE and Grietje DIRCKS. Cornelius was killed by Indians at New Amsterdam on 15 Sep 1655. Less than two months later, the New Amsterdam Orphans' Court reported on 9 Nov 1655: "Cornelis Hendricx Van Dort died leaving widow and minor. Madaleene Dircx his widow. He had no other relatives in the country. Jan Vinge, a relative of the widow [her uncle], and Hendrick Kip, an old burgher, at her request appointed guardians. Jan Vinge refused." The matter was settled on 16 Nov 1655: "Madaleen Dircx, widow of Cornelis Hend. Van Dort requests to have appointed as guardians, Abraham Verplanck and Andries De Haes, which is allowed."
Magdalena m. (2nd) to Herman (Hendricksen) ROSENKRANZ (b. 1612 in Bergen, Norway), in March 1657. (The Holland Society Year Book, 1900, stated they registered their marriage on 28 Mar 1657: "1657. March 28. Madalena Dircks, widow of Hendr. Van Dordt, decd, about to marry Haring Hendricksen, of Bergen in Norwav. She has one minor child by her deceased husband, named Maria Cornells, now about three years old. Sets apart for her child 500 Carolus guilders. Mortgages her house and lot at New Amsterdam, where she lives, next to Evert Duyckingh's."

Her baptism was witnessed by Abraham Isaac VERPLANCK, Laurens PIETERSZEN and Adriana VAN TIENHOVEN. She m. Jan LEQUIER () on 11 Nov 1663. His name was probably a contraction of "L' Esquire" - their marriage record named him "Jan Escuyer de Parys." Jan, formerly of Paris, arrived in New Amsterdam on 19 Jun 1658 on the "Brownfish." [Holland Society Year Book, 1902] On the same ship was Ensign Dirck SCHMITT of the West India Company. Jan is found next, enrolled in Ensign SCHMITT's company, up the Hudson River at Esopus on 16 Mar 1660. On 28 Feb 1663 Jan patented for a grant of land in Bushwick. In November he and Rachel were married.
They lived in Bushwick and owned about 20 morgens (40 acres) of land a little further north in Newtown, where their oldest son eventually made his home. On 1 Feb 1664, Jan received permission to have Abraham JANSEN, a carpenter, erect a mill on Mespath Kill (Newtown Creek). On 3 Apr 1664, "John Lequier of Paris" was appointed magistrate of Bushwick. He was listed as "Ensign Jan Lequie" on the rolls of Captain Joost KOCKHUYT's foot company of Bushwick in 1686. [Information on Jan from the St. Nicholas Society Genealogical Record, Vol. IV, p. 178]
On 19 Nov 1682, Rachel participated in the Flatbush DRC baptism of "Grietje, child of Lourens Corneliz [KOECK], Margritie Barends [FLAESBECK] [witnesses:] Jean Parys, Rachel Dirks." 1706 land records showed Jan owned 108 acres, and a mill and 25 acres. Rachel lived at least until September 1705, when she was listed in Jan's will. He died in 1713. They had ten known children. [Descendant Notes: A Hanna LEQUIER m. John OSTERBURG on "Tuesday after the 19th Trinity 1739" at the Lutheran Church of NY. An Arientje LEQUIER m. Johan ROSEVELD Jr. on 8 Nov 1746 at the Flatbush Dutch Reformed Church. An Elizabeth LEQUIER m. Dominicus VAN DER VEER Jr. at Flabush on 2 Jul 1748. There was another marriage on 2 Jul 1750, between Abraham LEQUIER and Cath. COLJER (CALYER?), followed by a baptism for Jacobus, son of 'Abm. Liquir' and 'Cath. Coljer' on 18 Feb 1753, both at the Flatbush DRC. There is an undated report of a marriage between an Abraham LEQUIER and Maria SEBRING.]
Christina LEQUIER....bapt. 14 Dec 1664 ("Johan, Rachel Dircks; Christina; Jaequis Casjou, Christina"), possibly died by 1705 as she was not listed in her father's will

William LEQUIER.....bapt. 22 Sep 1670: "Ghielliam. Jan Lequier and Rachgel Dirckx de Noorman of Boschwyck, parents." He married a Catryntje (Catherine). He received £225 from his father before 1705, and thus did not get an equal share in his father's will.
Jan LEQUIER.....bapt. 7 Aug 1705: "Jan. Giliam Lerue, Catryntje. [witnesses:] Jan Lerue, Maria Sevenhove." The witnesses were his grandfather Jan LEQUIER and his aunt Maria, wife of Jan SEVENHOVEN. He married a Jannetje and had at least two children by 1733, per baptism records. He was listed as a sponsor at a 1754 baptism, by which time his wife was an Elizabeth.
William LEQUIER....baptized 18 Aug 1730 at the Jamaica DRC, Queens Co., NY, recorded as "Gielyam"
Maria LEQUIER....baptized 27 May 1733 at the Jamaica DRC, Queens Co., NY, recorded as "Marya"
Rachel LEQUIER.......bapt. 14 Dec 1679, listed in the Flatbush DRC records as "Ragel" the daughter of "Jan Lewish and Rachel Dirks" - baptism witnessed by Michiel Hainelle and Janetie Miseurol, listed in her father's will. She married David SPRONG of Flushing, Queens Co., NY on 17 Nov 1694: den 17 [Nov]. David Spronck, j.m., Van Vlissingen, en Rachel Lequir, j.d., Van Boswyck, beyde wonende tot Boswyck. Getrouwt op 't Lange Eylt. She may have been only 14 at the time. (NOTE: See her slightly younger cousin Rachel VOLKERSE for another SPRONG marriage.) It's reported (documentation not given) that Rachel was listed as the widow of David SPRONG on 23 Oct 1731 and 5 May 1739.
....bapt. 29 Mar 1696 at the Brooklyn DRC: "Annitje. Davidt Sprong, Ragel Sprong. [witnesses:] Teunis Woertman, Katryn Sprong." She reportedly m. Daniel BODETT (BORDET?). However, there was a 20 May 1714 Flatbush DRC marriage record for "Annejte Sprong" and "Simon Durie" which may pertain to this Annitje.
David SPRONG.....bapt 8 Sep 1700 at the Brooklyn DRC: "David. David Sprong, Rachel. [witnesses:] Henricus Fereest, Femmetje." (Femmetje was probably Femmetje FLAESBECK, wife of Hendricus DE FOREST and first cousin of Rachel Lequier SPRONG. Both were granddaughters of Dirck De Noorman.)
Christina SPRONG....bapt. in the Brooklyn DRC on 26 Oct 1707: "Cristina. David Sprong, Rachel [witnesses:] Pieter Para, Christina Sebering." (Peter PRAA was remotely related by marriage, and 12 years later would own much of Dirck's old farm at Noorman's Kill. Christina Volkertse SEBRING, wife of Roelof Jansen SEBRING, was a first cousin of Rachel Lequier SPRONG. Both were granddaughters of Dirck De Noorman.)
Maria (Mary) LEQUIER....listed in will; m. Jan SEVENHOVEN on 11 Oct 1693 at the Flatbush DRC: "Jan V. Sievenhoven to Maria Le Laye" [Holland Society Year Book, 1898, p. 95]

Annetje LEQUIER.... baptized at the Harlingen DRC on 14 Oct 1730: "Isaac Lequejer and Atje Cataljouw, Annaetje"
" In the name of God, Amen, September 13, 1705. I, John
Laquere, of Bushwyck, in Kings County. I leave to my loving wife Rachel
Lequere, all estate during her life. I leave to my eldest son, Johans
Lequere, all that certain parcel of land within the bounds of Newtown, upon
which he lives at present, being 20 morgen or thereabouts, lying next to the
land of Cornelius Yorisen, in full of his pretence of being heir at law.
After the death of my wife, all the rest of my estate is to go to my
children, Johan, Mary, Rachel, Peter, Abraham, and Isaac. In the division of
my estate, after each of the other children has had 225 [pounds?], then my son William
is to have a share with the rest, he having had that amount before."
Witnesses, Dirck Andriesen, William Huddlestone, Jr. Proved, September 8,
1713. [Book 8, p. 200, Wills of NY Surrogate's Office]
Volkert's baptism in the Dutch Reformed Church in New Amsterdam was witnessed by step-grandfather Jan Jansen DAMEN, Philip GREAR, Maria PHILIPS and (boo-hiss!) uncle Cornelis VAN TIENHOVEN, whose title "Secretaris" appears in the record of the event. He was raised at Smit's Vly, and sometime after 1646 moved across the East River to their new farm house at Noorman's Kill. His family may not have settled there permanently until the mid-1650's, after the Indian wars subsided. In 1667 he contracted with his father to work 200 acres of this farm, in exchange for eventually receiving title to the land. Volkert married Annetje PHILLIPS about 1668. Her father was Phillip LANGELANS, who sailed from the Netherlands to New Amsterdam in 1659 on the ship "Faith" with his wife and two daughters. The other daughter was Marie, who married Grietje Dircks' son Jurian NAGEL. Jurian's aunt Annetje was thus also his sister-in-law, and Volkert's nephew was also his brother-in-law.
When the Dutch recaptured New York from the English in 1673, Volkert became a magistrate of Bushwick under the short-lived Dutch authority. The English and Dutch concluded a treaty in 1674 that returned New York to English control. His name then appears on the 1675 and 1676 Assessment Rolls in Boswyck as Volkert Dierckse. In 1677 he was listed as a member of Dominie Van Zuuren's church, and in 1686 was commissioned lieutenant of militia [p. 147 of Cal. of Eng. Man.]. In the 1682 baptism of his daughter Lydia at the Flatbush DRC, his name was recorded as "Folkert Dircksen" and that of his wife was "Annitje Flippsen."
Volkert appeared on the 1683 Rate List of Bushwyck as Volkert Dircksen (assessed taxes for 200 acres). On 10 Aug 1684 he witnessed the baptism of niece Lisbeth, daughter of Peter Schamp and Janetie Dirks of Bushwick, at the Reformed Dutch Church of Flatbush. On 21 Nov 1686 the NY DRC showed a baptism for: "Jacop. Joost Dulje, Madleen Delefeebre, parents [witnesses:] Folkert Dircksen, Elisabeth Lodowycks." He sold some of his land in 1685 to Peter PRAA, and shows up again on a land patent in 1687. In that same year he was listed on the roster at Bushwick when he took the mandatory oath of allegiance to England. On 9 Sep 1688 Volkert witnessed at the baptism of granddaughter Antie, daughter of Cornelius Cortelyou and Neltje Volkers, at Flatbush. He died before the Kings County census in 1698. Based on the participants and description of the 1689 land transaction between Volkert's brother Jacob and son Dirck, he may already have died by July 1689.
Many of Volkert's children moved to New Jersey after his death. It is also likely that his wife Annetje went with them, as an undated (approx. 1710) map of the Harlingen tract in Somerset County, NJ, shows the adjoining properties of "Anna Volkerse, Claus Volkerse, Dirck Volkerse and D. Volkerse"
[the last entry may be son Philip, with the initial P miscopied as a D, but the evidence is that Dirck owned two lots there].
See the New Jersey page for further information on Volkert's descendants
It appears that Jacob was less successful than his siblings, as his property amounted to about a quarter of what each of the rest had. On the 'Assessment Roll of the Real and Personal Property in Boswyck, made up on the 19th August, 1675' (when he was about 29 years old), he was listed as:
However, a year later he had doubled his land holdings, for on the 'Assessment Roll of Boswyck made up 23 Septemb. 1676' he was recorded as:
Dierckse, Jabecq 1 poll 2 horses 1 do of 1 yr 2 sheep 10 morgans land 65 18
Jacob's appearance on assessment rolls Boswyck in 1683 showed a possible reversal of fortune:
Dirckx, Jacob: 1 poll, 1 horse, 7 morgans of land 44.
His name also showed up on a protest against the salary of Rev. Dominie POLHEMUS. The last record of him was in 1689 when he sold property to his brother's son Dirck:
"17th July, 1st year of William and Mary , Jacob Dirckse by and with consent of Barent Flacxbeeck, Pieter Schaimpe, Jurian Nagel, Hendricus Defforeest, William Aertsen and William Huddleston conveys property in Bushwick to Dirck Folkert."
July 17 1st year of William and Mary, Purchased from Jacob Dirckse land at Bushwick, bounded East South and west by land of widow Folkert."
[Kings Co. Deeds, 1:63-MsRec 264]
It is unknown whether he married. He did not appear on the 1698 census.
Ariantje (Adriantje) was baptised at the New Amsterdam DRC on 21 Aug 1650. The witnesses included Jan VINGE, Claes CORSZEN, Lysbeth CREGIERS and Aefje VAN TIENHOVEN. She was probably named after her grandmother Adrienne Cuvelier ("Ariantje Cuvilje" in Dutch). In DRC records she is also listed as Marritie DIRCX or DIRKS. She m. Carel HUYSMAN (Charles HOUSEMAN) about 1675. They moved to New Jersey by 1680. Carel was listed at a DRC baptism in New York in 1703. They had five children. (There was another "Adriantje Dircks" in New Amsterdam, who m. Jan De Vries on 10 Dec 1679.)
Magdalena HUYSMAN.......bapt. 21 Mar 1676 in New York, when her mother was listed in the church record as Marritie DIRCX. Magdalena m. Jan VAN DER VOORD (per DRC records, but also reported as VAN DER HORST)
Charel VAN DER VOORD...bapt. at NY DRC, 12 Sep 1703, with sponsors Carel HUYSMAN and Stynte SCHAMP, his grandfather and his mother's first cousin.
Mary HUYSMAN.......bapt. 25 Mar 1680 at the Bergen, NJ, DRC: "Marey. Sjarel Huysman, Adriaentje Dirckse [witnesses:] David De Maree, Angenietje Streyckers"

Johannes HUYSMAN.......m. Christina HOPPE, 21 Mar 1701
Her baptism was witnessed by Abraham VERPLANCK, Pieter JANSZEN Noorman and Marritie ABRAHAMS. She m. Pierre (Peter) DES CHAMPS (1636-1694) on 7 Oct 1674. He was listed as 'Pieter Scamp of Bushwick, a soldier from Gendt' (Ghent, Belgium?) and she as 'Jannetje Dirks from Noortman's Kill.' [Early Settlers of Kings County, Long Island, NY, by Teunis Bergen, p. 248] They lived on the north side of Dirck Volckertszen 's property, on ten morgens (20 acres) he transferred to them on April 26, 1677. Dirck had previously given Jennekin an adjoining meadowland. When he took the 1687 loyalty oath, 'Pieter Schamp' of 'Boswijck' reported he had been in the New World for 15 years.
Peter died by 1694. A SCHAMP family site by Robert Brian Stewart tells us that Jannetje "participated in the troubles of the times and was brought before the court on 9 January 1694 in Bushwick, Kings County, New York. Apparently, Rachel, the wife of John Luger, and the 'widow Jonica Schamp' of Bushwick were presented before the court of Sessions for having on 24 January previous assaulted Captain Peter Praa. (This Peter Praa was also the purchaser of her father's property?) In their assault, they tore him by the hair as he stood at the head of his company in Boswyck. They were heavily fined and released after making due confession of their fault. (Records of Court Sessions, in Old Road Book, City Hall of Brooklyn, p. 25)." On the 1698 census she was shown as a widow with six children. She did not appear on the 1706 property lists in Bushwick.
Jannetje SCHAMP.......bapt. 27 Jul 1675
Joost SCHAMP.......at times called "Justis," his given name was the Dutch version of "George." Joost was b. at Bushwick, Kings Co., New York, and bapt. on 23 Aug 1676 at the Dutch Reformed Church on Manhattan Island. He was taxed "one piece of eight" to pay for common fences in Bushwick on 6 November 1701. He married Margrietje LOCK, daughter of Claes Hendrickszen LOCK and Christyntje (?) HENDRICKS, about 1703. A 1706 entry listed him as "Joost CAMP" and indicated he had 40 acres at Bushwick. By 1713 he had owned and sold land near New Brunswick, NJ, to his sister Lisbeth and her husband Barent COOL. Moving to Franklin Township, Somerset County, NJ, he was listed in the local militia in 1715 as Sergeant George Schamp. He purchased 500 acres in Readington Twp., Hunterdon Co., NJ, on 13 May 1728, "betwixt the North and South Branches of the Raritan River" from Daniel COXE of Trenton. His will was written on 28 May 1760 and proved on 14 Jun 1760 at Pleasant Run, Readington Twp. (Much of the information on Joost is from a SCHAMP/SCHOMP family site.)
George SCHAMP.......ca. 1704-. The New Jersey Calendar of Wills lists a George SCHAMP, of Reading Twp., Hunterdon Co., NJ, with a will written 28 May 1760 and proved 14 Jun 1760. There was a later George SCHAMP, a saddler, who advertised his business at Pluckemin, NJ in 1771.

He had 3 children by his first wife, but it's unknown whether Christina had any descendants. As "Styntie Schamp" she and her uncle Carel HUYSMAN were listed as witnesses at the DRC baptism of Charel, son of Jan VAN DER VOORD and Magdalena HUYSMAN on 12 Sep 1703.
