About Aucke Janse Van Nuys

AUCKE Janse Van Nuys was the common ancestor of the Van Nuys family in America,

In 1651 he with his wife, Magdalena Pieterse, and some of his children emigrated from Holland to New Amsterdam (now New York.) He was a carpenter, and his name appears in numerous early records in New Amsterdam, Brooklyn, and Flatbush, from which records these items were obtained.

On May 6, 1653, he sold his house and lot in New Amsterdam, and in 1654 he was employed as master carpenter in the erection of the first church on Long Island, in Flatbush, near New Amsterdam.

There are records of purchases of several tracts of land in this region. In 1673 he was appointed Schepen or mag- istrate, by Governor Colve, an office similar to that of alderman of the present time, and in 1674 he was one of the representatives to the "Convention of Delegates" called by the governor to meet in New Orange (Albany) after the capture of the Netherlands from the British.

His name is in the list of those who in 1687 took the oath of allegiance to Great Britain after New Nether- lands had been re-taken by the British. A facsimile of his signature is given in Stiles' History of Kings County, New York, so we know that he was not an illiterate man.

He was three times married. His second marriage was to Lysbert Clausen and the third to Gurtruyd Jacobse.

Of his nine children five were born in America. The nine were Annetie, Gurtruyd, Janneke, Jan, Abagail. Pieter, Jacobus, Femitie and Ida. Very different names these from those borne by the descendants of the present day.

His will was dated May 15, 169 4 and probated in 1698.
