About Femmetje Jans

New Amsterdam - Immigrants

Femmetjie's children were born on Staten Island in 1662 and in 1667.


1674 May 27; Gerrit Egbertszen, Femmetie Jans; Pieter; Hendrick Rycke, Aeltie Jans



When Harmentje married Govert she was a resident of Flushing, Long Island, New York.

Govert Gerrits Egbert m. twice, 1st – ca. 1657, Harmentje Harmens, widow of Willem Janszen van Devener and Gerrit Hendrickszen, (according to some sources Egbert was her 3rd husband, 4th was Gerrit Tysen Van Velsor) res. Flushing, Long Is., NY, 2nd – 1674, Richmond, Staten Is., NY, Femmetje (Jaepje) Jans (possibly last name Hagewout?). The homestead could still be seen in 1964. (also said to be res. Esopus, NY) ‘Gerret’ was present but escaped at the massacre of 1663 at Wiltwyck, NY. From: http://freepages.family.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~emty/Section_D_Govert_Egbert_Family.html

Confusing and conflicting information about the marriages above. The only way it could be so is if Govert and wife divorced and remarrried which is unlikely.
