About Hendrick Jansen Kortright (Kortreght)

Hendrick Jansen Van Kortryk (son of Jan Bastiansen Van Kortryk and Yolanta De La Montagne) was born 1648 in Beest, Holland, and died in 1741 at age 93 in Kingston, Ulster Co., NY. He married Catherine Hansen Webber on December 14, 1672 in Esopus (Kingston), Ulster Co., NY, daughter of Hans Webber and Elsje Pieters Van Hamburg.

Note:

Not sure which was his first child: Hendrick's first child being born at Harlem, in 1674, he was probably then living there, but as before stated, he settled in Ulster County, buying land at Mombackus, town of Rochester, where he raised a large family

who bore the name of Kortright or Cortright, and whose descendants have

become numerous and widely scattered.
