New Netherland Settlers
Lodewyck Cornelis Post & His Wife Agnietje Bonen
Lorine McGinnis Schulze
Sometime between October 1647 and July 1652, Lodewyck Cornelils Post, his wife Agnietje Bonen, and their children left Amsterdam Holland to settle in New Netherland (New York). Research into Naarden Holland church records has revealed Lodewyck's birth and his parents' marriage in that city.
When Lodewyck and his family arrived, New Amsterdam's population was just over 600 people and it was growing rapidly. New Amsterdam's gabled homes, the Dutch language being spoken, and Dutch laws in place would have offered comfort to newly arrived Lodewyck and Agnietje.
Court records in New Amsterdam (New York City) reveal 20 years of Lodewyck's involvement in various cases. Often he was being taken to court for money owed to others in the community. Lodewyck was also involved in attempts to protect his daughter Belitje from her abusive husband.
