Notes:

Laurens Jansen's share of the De Meyer lands, bought jointly with

his brother Cornells, laid the foundation of the ample estate he acquired at

Harlem, but which, with his grandsons, passed out of the name.

His election as an overseer in 1677, and repeatedly afterward, and

the other responsible duties intrusted to him, evince the respect in which

he was held. He died in 1727, probably at Harlem.

His name was usually written in the church records as Louwerens Jansen, and following the established Dutch custom of the time, his children were called Louwe, afterward shortened to Low, which was adopted as the family name, by his children, and not the name of Kort-

right, which most of the other descendants did.

-------------------- From The Courtright (Kortright) Family, by John Howard Abbott, pages 28-29:

Laurens Jansen (Kortright), b. 1651, at Beest, Gelderland, Holland, and ancestor of the Low family of Harlem, was the youngest son of Jan Bastiaensen (Van Kortryk), and came in 1663, with his parents.

He married in 1672, Mary, dau. of Albert Heymans Roosa and his wife, Wyntje Ariens, at Esopus. The Roosa family came from Herwynen, Gelderland, Holland, sailing in the Bonte-koe, April 15th, 1660, and went immediately to Esopus, where he and his wife united with the church of which two years after, he became an elder.

Governor Stuyvesant giving a name to Wiltwick (Esopus), May 16th, 1661, appointed Roosa one of its first schepens. Here he took up land, for which he got a patent in 1664, and died in 1679, leaving a good estate, and eight surviving children.

Laurens Jansen's share of the De Meyer lands, bought jointly with his brother Cornelis, laid the foundation of the ample estate he acquired at Harlem, but which, with his grandsons, passed out of the name.

His election as an overseer in 1677, and repeatedly afterward, and the other responsible duties intrusted to him, evince the respect in which he was held. He died in 1727, probably at Harlem.

His name was usually written in the church records as Louwerens Jansen, and following the established Dutch custom of the time, his children were called Louwe, afterward shortened to Low, which was adopted as the family name, by his children and not the name of Kortright, which most of the other descendants did.

His children were Annetie, Albert, Wyntie, Neeltie, John, Gysbert, Cornelis, Belitie and Lawrence. -------------------- http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=familyties&id=I24480
