THE SIBLINGS OF THOMAS SWARTWOUT

by Cor Snabel © 2014

 

Finding the marriage intention of Ryckje Swartwout and the sponsors at the baptism records of her children were the keys to find and connect most siblings of Thomas Swartwout.

 

 

The family of

RYCKJE SWARTWOUT

sister of Thomas Swartwout

 

Gerrit Gerritsz Roelvinck, born in Nahuys [?] about 1612, tobacco merchant on the Brouwersgracht in Amsterdam, was buried 28 October 1678 in the Oude Kerk in Amsterdam.[1]

On 13 April 1641 he registered intention [2] to marry with Riske Swartwout, born in Groningen about 1614, buried 19 July 1663 in the Oude Kerk in Amsterdam.[3]

They had at least 8 children:

  1. Roelof Roelvinck, bapt. 16 February 1642 in the Noorderkerk in Amsterdam.[4] (sponsor at baptism: Annetje Swartwout, sister of his mother)

  2. Tryntje Roelvinck, bapt. 20 September 1643 in the Noorderkerk in Amsterdam.[5] (no sponsor at baptism)

  3. Geertruyt Roelvinck, bapt. 4 December 1644 in the Noorderkerk in Amsterdam,[6] (sponsor at baptism: Geertruyt Schutte, wife of Harmen Swartwout)

  4. Geertruyt Roelvinck, bapt. 10 December 1645 in the Noorderkerk in Amsterdam.[7] (sponsor at baptism: Geertruyt Swartwout, probably Geertruyt Schutte)

  5. Roelof Roelvinck, bapt. 17 Seprember 1647 in the Oude Kerk in Amsterdam.[8] (sponsor at baptism: Wybrant Swartwout, brother of his mother)

  6. Maria Roelvinck, bapt. 23 February 1649 in the Oude Kerk in Amsterdam.[9] (sponsor at baptism: Geertruyt Roelvinck, sister of her father)

  7. Egbertus Roelvinck, bapt. 18 February 1652 in the Noorderkerk in Amsterdam.[10] (sponsor at baptism: Harmen Swartwout, brother of his mother)

  8. Gerrit Roelvinck, bapt. 8 August 1655 in the Noorderkerk in Amsterdam.[11] (sponsor at baptism: Geertruyt Roelvinck, sister of his father)

 

Rykje Swartwout was a sponsor at the baptism of:

Cornelis, son of Thomas Swartwout, her brother, on 15 May 1636.

Tryntje, daughter of Harmen Swartwout, her brother, on 17 February 1637.

Johannis, son of Harmen Swartwout, her brother, on 22 January 1643.

 

 

The family of

WYBRANT SWARTWOUT

brother of Thomas Swartwout

 

Wybrant Swartwout, born in Groningen about 1592, brewer's hand on the Haarlemmersluys in Amsterdam. On 9 April 1622 he registered intention [12] to marry with Gerbrich Harmens, born about 1592.

They had at least one child:

  1. Sweertjen [Assuera] Swartwout, bapt. 16 March 1623 in the Oude Kerk in Amsterdam.[13] (sponsor at baptism: Betjen Henrix, unknown)

Gerbrich Harmens was sponsor at the baptism of:

Femmetje, daughter of Harmen Swartwout, on 21 May 1630.

 

Wybrant Swartwout was rather active in buying and selling houses, starting in 1627. In 1660 he was still alive, when he and Floris Jansz Adelaer sold a house and land. This Floris Adelaer is an intriguing man, because on two occasions he also was sponsor at the baptism of Harmen Swartwout's children.

sister of Thomas Swartwout

 

Laurens Grapengieter, chirurgyn in de Kapelsteeg in Amsterdam. On 5 December 1631 he registered intention [14] to marry with Annetje Swartwout, born in Groningen about 1601.

The following notarial document also confirms the family relationship between Thomas Swartwout en Harmen Swartwout.

[Thanks to Chris Brooks for sharing this].

 

Notarial Archives Stadsarchief Amsterdam [35] Notary Cornelis de Grijp, Amsterdam.

[Translated]

Roelof Swartwout, living in New Netherland, now here present and Cornelis Swartwout, living here, sons of Thomas Swartwout and Hendrickje Barendts. Harmen Swartwout and Otto Barentsz Smient in the name of Hendrickje Barendtss, having power of attorney from her husband Thomas Swartwout, who stood bail in 165(?) for an amount of 735 guilders. Because the first-mentioned are now adults, they declare that they want to release Harmen Swartwout from their share of the amount. Dated 7 April 1660.

 

This was just before Roeloff Swartwout returned to New Netherland on the Bonte Koe, which sailed on 16 April 1660 from Amsterdam. Perhaps he was in Amsterdam for the wedding of his brother Cornelis on 31 January 1660.

 

-o-o-o-o-

 

I could not find any burial records for “old” Roelof Swartwout from Groningen and his wife Tryntje. But from the marriage intentions we are able to pin down the approximate death date of “old” Roelof.

In 1622 when his son Wybrant is going to get married, he has to bring in proof of his father's consent, so Roelof must have been alive. In 1631 daughter Annetje has to bring in proof of her mother's consent, so daddy must have past away.

When Ryckje is going to get married in 1641 she testifies that both her parents are dead, so mother Tryntje must have died between 1631 and 1641

 

-o-o-o-o-

 

However, there is one Swartwout from Groningen that I was not able to connect to the siblings above and that is Jan Swartwout.

 

 

The family of

JAN SWARTWOUT

brother [?] of Thomas Swartwout

 

Jan Swartwout, born in Groningen about 1596, tailor on 't Rokin. On 21 March 1619 he registered intention [36] to marry with Grietje Dirx, born about 1589.

They had at least one child:

1. Marytje, bapt. 11 July 1621 in the Oude Kerk in Amsterdam.[37] (sponsor at baptism: Jan de Wael, unknown)
