New Netherland Settlers

Albert Jansen & Elsjie Jans & Their Van Woggelum, Provoost & Van Loon Descendants

Authored by Lorine McGinnis Schulze

Albert Jansen married Hilletie Willems in Amsterdam in 1638. Soon afterwards he left Holland and sailed to the wilderness of New Netherland (New York). When he arrived in 1642, he settled in New Amsterdam, which was little more than a fort with approximately 270 people. Its gabled homes, the Dutch language being spoken, and Dutch laws would have offered some familiarity to newly arrived Albert.

When Albert married Elsjie Jans in New Amsterdam in 1652, they were both widowers. Elsjie had been married to David Clement in Amsterdam in 1641. Albert and Elsjie's had four daughters and a son, all named in the Orphanmaster's records of New Amsterdam after Albert's death. Eljsie married for a third time to Otto Grimm but no children are known of that marriage. Three of the daughters of Albert and Elsjie married into the Van Woggelum, Provoost and Van Loon families.

This book contains details on the lives and adventures of Albert and Elsjie and their children. Documents and sources are included.
