Ancestors of Cornelia Maas, Wife of Johannes Holsaert and Rutgert Waldron

Page history last edited by Liz Johnson 6 years, 11 months ago

Ancestors of Cornelia Maas

© 2013 Elizabeth Johnson

 

 With thanks to Cor Snabel, who recently identified the significance of the name 'Maas',

to Chris Chester, Renee Dauven, Howard Graham, Granvyl Hulse, and Mike Morrissey,

and to all others before us who have generously provided their valuable contributions.

 

 

Generation 1

 

1 Cornelia Maas (Thomas), born about 1675, Jamaica, Queens County, NY. Parents: 2 Thomas Franszen and 3 Neeltje Urbanus. [Note 1]. Married between 1695 and 1702, NY City, NY, to Johannes Holsaert, born about 1672, probably at Sluys, Flanders, died before 1710, son of Johannes Holsaert and (probably) his second wife, Johanna Havens, with whom he married in 1672. 

 

A note on Cornelia's surname: Cor Snabel recently identified the significance of the name 'Maas' as a short form of the name Thomas. The Dutch often used the latter half of a person's name as a nickname or everyday name. Thus a Cornelia may be called Neeltje, Nicolaes becomes Claes, Urbanus becomes Banus, and Thomas becomes Maas. Cornelia's surname comes from her father's first name (a patronym), and her siblings also had the surname Thomas or Thomaszen.

 

Johannes Holseart (Cornelia's father-in-law) was clerk of the town of Flatlands, Kings County, New York for a short time, about one or two years before he died in 1687. Here is an example of his signature, from a deed dated 18 September  1686 (Stoffel Jansen deed to Pieter Klaesen), found in Town Records of Long Island. Flatland Miscellaneous Papers; New York Municipal Archives, Microfilm Roll No. 75, p. 95.

 

 

Cornelia Maas remarried about 1714 to Rutgert Waldronson of Daniel Waldron and Sarah Rutgers van Langendyck, baptized on 24 October 1677, New York Dutch Reform Church, died in 1720, New York. Rutgert's baptism witnesses were Rutgert Willemszen and Marritie Waldron.

 

Proof of Cornelia's second marriage with Rutgert Waldrom can be found in two land records, made in May, 1710, and July, 1717. In the first, dated May 30, 1710, John Lucassen of Gravesend, Kings County, NY deeds to Cornelia Holshart, "widow of Johannes Holshartt late of Fflatlands in the county aforesd", for 66 pounds, a house and 2 1/2 acre property or garden spot, fenced, "bounded North by the highway South and east by the heyres of Garret Coerten deceased, and west by Harmannus Hoogland", and also a tract of woodland containing about 5 1/2 acres. This first deed also provides a date at which her husband was known to be deceased [Note 1a].

 

In the second deed, dated July 18, 1717, Rutgert Waldron of the city of New York and Cornelia his wife sell to Josiah Drake of Oyster Bay, Queens, NY for 85 pounds a house and garden spot in Flatlands "Bounded North by the highway South and East by the heires of gerrit Coerten Deceased and West by Hermanus Hogelandt" in fence, containing about 2 acres, previously sold to Cornelia by John Lucassen [Note 1b].

 

Rutgert Waldron of New York left a will dated June 14, 1720, in which he mentions "my seven children" who were Daniel, Samuel, Richard, Johanes, Sarah and Cornelia Waldron, and Ann Holsaert. The child mentioned last, Ann Holsaert, was his step-daughter, a child of his second wife Cornelia Maas and her first husband, Johannes Holseart. See Abstracts of NY Wills Vol. II 1708-1728, page 226.

Notes

 

1: Johannes Holseart II and Cornelia Maas are much more likely to be the parents of the Cornelia Holsaert who is said to have married Cornelius Emans than the known daughter of Benjamin Holsaert and Annetje Luyster who, if she was baptized shortly after birth, would have been only 10 years old at the time of their marriage, assuming she was his first and only wife. Thanks to Renee Dauven for pointing this out.

6: Urbanus Luursen owned three houses in a row on the Haarlemmerstraet in Amsterdam. One house was already on a property when he bought it in 1644, and shortly thereafter he built two more houses on adjoining properties that he acquired in 1644. The middle of the three houses was called "De Gelderse Metselaar" (The Mason of Gelderland). He sold two of these three houses shortly before he moved to New Netherland in 1646.

 

From New Netherland Connections Magazine Vol. 4, No. 4, p. 90 author Pim Nieuwenhuis, "Abstracts from Notarial Documents in the Amsterdam Archive":


20 Jun 1646 [not. H Schaef, 1323/178]. Urbanus Luurs from Wagenen (=Wageningen), about to sail on de Prinses to New Netherland in the service of the West Indies Company as master mason, makes a payment of 168 carolus guldens to Jacob and Gerrit Pieters, brothers of Amsterdam, for equipment for the voyage.

 

Urbanus Luursen sailed back to Holland in June 1647 aboard the Prinses Amelia, leaving behind his expectant wife Jannetje Claes, and two small children, Hermen and Neeltje. His reason for returning to Holland may have had to do with the sales of his two properties on the Haarlemmerstraat, each of which had been sold for nearly seven thousand guldens. But the Prinses Amelia sank off the coast of Wales in the Bristol Channel on September 27, 1647. One of the 86 passengers who died was Urbanus Luurs, master mason originally from Wageningen.

Orphanmasters of New Amsterdam, June 19 and 21, 1659. Summary (EJ):

Jannetje (here called Bonen), a widow with children, wishes to marry a third husband, Tomas Verdon. Verdon has one son Jacob, age 3, of a previous wife, and she has four children: Hermanus Urbanus, age 17, Neeltje Urbanus, 15, Urbanus Urbanus, 10, and Teunis Tobiassen, 8. Both parties ordered to make settlement on their previous children before approval for the marriage can be given. Abraham Clock and Evert Duyking are named guardians for Jannetje's children. Jannetje settles 50 florins on each of her four children. Thomas Verdon settled similarly on his own son.
Source: Minutes of the Orphanmasters of New Amsterdam, pp. 92-94.


Important note: Boones, Boonen or any Bo- surname for Jannetje Claes is technically incorrect. This was a derivation of her husband's first name (Urbanus = Banus, which was rendered as various forms of Boonen in New Amsterdam). This probably happened because Urbanus died so soon after moving to New Amsterdam, and his wife/widow, Jannetje Claes, was not well enough known by the recorders of New Amsterdam court and church records for them to recognize her true identity. Meanwhile, her identity as his widow was important to her, her children, and to the Orphans Court, since when he died, he was owed a salary by the Dutch West Indies Company. Thus she became known as Jannetje Bonen (probably a mistranscription of some form of Banes). But her correct name is proven in the marriage and baptism records of Amsterdam. See Note 6, for instance.

Translation (EJ):

 

Jacob Leurtss of Wageningen mason's hand, age 22 years, having no parents, living in the Harlemerdwarstraet, 

& Styntie Douwes of Enkuhisen, age 21 years, living in the Angelierstrae, having no parents.

 

Chris Chester notes: In 1908 a genealogy of the Kuykendall family was published: http://books.google.com/books?id=SB9ZAAAAMAAJ&

At page 34 (Chapter V) it recognizes that Jacob and Urbanus were brothers. And it states that it is not known whether Jacob was married prior to coming to NN in 1646. It also states that he must have died in 1656.

 

Van Laer's Settlers of Rensselaerwyck, places Jacob Luyersz in Rensselaerwijck in 1651 and 1652 (page 43).

 

The family of Luurs Jacobsen (who is first called van Kuykendaal in the 1706 baptism record of his last child, Seytie at Kingston), which can be found in the 1908 genealogy starting at page 37, appears to be correct when compared with the records of the Kingston Dutch Church. The family is found in the Kingston records and in the records of the various churches in the Minisink Valley area in the later generations.

Janny Venema's Deacons' Accounts 1652-1673, Beverwijck/Albany notes that Jacob was deceased in 1655, and his widow, Stijntje remarried.

& Judith Crottel of Amsterdam, widow of Pieter Arianss, living on the B_eepatt 


14Amsterdam marriage record had no note concerning his place of birth.

15: A note online at http://www.earljones.net/aqwn1163.htm#31788 indicates that Beatrix Hermans, mother of Jannetje Claes (here called 'Boanes'), received Power of Attorney to collect 221 guilders that Urbanus earned on the ship De Princes on September 19, 1648. However, Urbanus, a master mason, would not have worked on a ship, since no jobs for masons exist on ships. Urbanus must have been hired by the Dutch West Indies Company for a project at New Amsterdam (which paid 221 guilders). But unfortunately he died before September 1648, after less than a year of residence there.
