About Ide Cornelisen Corneliszen Van Vorst

Ide Corneliszen Van Vorst

Said to have been the 1st white male born and married in New Amsterdam

1652 18 Oct; Ide Corneliszen van Voorst, van N. Amsterd; Hilletje Jans, van Oldenburg

History of County of Hudson, NJ pg 430: Ide was born and married in Netherlands. In the war of 1643 the "little boy" was captured by the Indians and taken to Tappaen. Capt. de Vries and a couple of friendly natives, a few days afterward, went up and ransomed him. He married Hilletje Jans of Oldenbergh 10/18/1652. That he had a good time at his wedding is learned incidentally from the record of a law suit between him and his stepfather about two years afterward. It appears that Stoffelsen had some time previous given a dinner to Capt. Geurt Lysen and his friends, and in return the Captain had presented Stoffelsen with a negro. Two sheep were required for the entertainment, and these being taken from the common flock. Ide claimed to own one-half of them and therefore one-half of the negro. Stoffelsen replied that Ide had two sheep at his wedding and these having also come out of the common flock balanced accounts leaving the negro to him.

He continued to reside at Ahasimus as a farmer, accumulating wealth which was to eneable him to become the owner of a considerable part of the domain of Pauw.

He braved the danger of border life and exposed his property and family to the attack of the stealthy savages rather than abandon his home. During the war of 1655 he took refuge in New Amsterdam but returned to his farm when peace was established. Yet he was in danger and obliged to flee for his life. One day in Oct. 1659 the Indians came down upon him as he was engaged in dressing some meat near his house. Seizing the meat he fled to his boat and pulled across the river to New Amsterdam. The Solons who administered justice in that great city could not wink at such a gross breach of the law and they solemnly fined him 20 guilders and costs for bringing meat to the city without taking out an excise license.

From Dutch NY by Esther Singleton 1909: Tavern & Excise Laws 1658: Nicaseus de Silla prosecuted Dirck Braeck "for that deft. on last Sun afternoon during the sermon tapped for and gave drinks to 3 or 4 different persons. Def denies the same saying he only treated Nicolaes Vareth, Cornelis Aersen and Ide van Vorst and their wives to a drink of beer through friendship and good neighborhood without taking a penny as they did him many favors heretofore when after his cattle. This being a first offense the def was warned and discharged. It seems that while the masters were being entertained by one Braeck their servants were taking advantage of their absence to enjoy themselves. De Silla sues Cornelis Aersen and Ide van Vorst for their servantmen raced last Sun evening after the sermon within the city with horses and wagons and damage and disaster might have arisen. Defendants were fined three guilders each.

On Sept. 16, 1657 "Yden Corneilszen" and Hilletje Jans were present at the baptism of Tryntie, child of Claes Janszen and Anneken Cornelis.
