About Jochem Ghijsen Wessels

Jochem Wessels was born in Europe. By the early 1650s, he was in Beverwyck where he acquired a house lot. He was a baker in Albany until his death in 1681.

He was the husband of Geertruy Hieronimus (the widow of William Hoffmeyer). Their marriage produced at least three children. In 1657, he sued his stepson (William Hoffmeyer) for a house. He appeared frequently before the local courts! In 1658, he sold a house and lot in Beverwyck to Wouter Albertse - another baker.

In 1660, his name was on a list of people petitioning the court for more freedom in pursuit of the fur trade.

In 1679, his home was included on a list of Albany householders.

Jochem Wessels filed a will in February 1681. He died later that year.
