About Frederick Lubberts

Sailed with Peter Minuit

Witnessed the deed from the Connektikut Indian Tribe to the Dutch West Indies Company/Minuit for Connecticut river & Hartford. The English Settlers moved in Downriver & restricted trade so they moved the settlement to an area where Minuit had been with Henry Hudson and bartered the island from the Manhattan Tribe & Long Island. They established New Amsterdam, now known as New York.

The House of Good Hope, and Hartford, Connecticut

In 1633 the Dutch in New Amsterdam received word that some English traders were encroaching on the Eastern boundary of New Netherland, the Fresh River, called by the indians “in their tongue Connettecuck”. The Dutch had discovered this river in 1614, and ten years later they sent two of their families and six other men to settle on its banks, to trade with the indians and to maintain Dutch claims on the area. In 1632 Edward Winslow, the governor of the New Plymouth colony of Pilgrims, made a trip up the Fresh River and discovered it “to be a fine place”. He picked out a spot for a trading post, and it was soon occupied by a handfull of English traders. In June 1633 Director van Twiller sent his Commissary, Jacob van Curler, to the Pequot indians who lived on the banks of this river, and van Curler purchased from the Pequot chief a tract of land called Sickajoock (now Hartford), “one league down along the river and one-third of a league in width to the high land.” (A league is about three miles.) This is in the present Dutch Point area of Hartford, Connecticut. Here van Curler constructed a trading house, which was optimistically christened the House of Good Hope, and fortified with two cannon. The Dutch sailor who served as a witness to the signing of this deed from Sassacus, sachem of the Pequots on 8 Jun 1633 was 24-year old Frederick Lubbertsen. The other men in van Curler’s group, who also witnessed the signing, were Gilles Pieters, Claes Jans Ruyter, Domingo Dios, Barent Jacobz Cool, and Pieter Louwensen. (Claes Jansen de Ruyter, also called Claes Jansen van Naerden, was the brother of Lubbertsen’s wife Styntje.) The Chief of the Sickenames was paid for the said land one piece of duffels, 27 ells long; six axes; six kettles; eighteen knives, one sword blade, one shears, and some toys.

In the Plymouth colony the news of the Dutch fortified house was received with concern. The Pilgrims did not feel themselves strong enough to tackle the Dutch singlehanded, and Bradford and Winslow appealed to their new neighbor, the Puritan settlement at Massachusetts Bay. Its governor, John Winthrop, had arrived with a party of 900 settlers only three years earlier, but he felt his people were not yet ready for expansion. So the Pilgrims of New Plymouth realized they must go it alone. They built a big bark, put the frame of a house on it, and in September 1633, under the command of Lieutenant William Holmes, they sailed defiantly upriver to the spot Winslow had selected, (now called Windsor). When they arrived at Good Hope, the Dutch stopped them and asked them where they were going. The English answered “Up the river to trade,” and van Curler burst out: “Strike and stay, or we will shoot you.” But the traders showed him their commission from the governor of New Plymouth, and sailed on. Hans Janse Eencluys, in charge of artillery, forbore to fire. (Bradford later remarked: “The Dutch threaten us hard, yet they shoot not.”) The small Dutch detachment at the House of Good Hope sent a letter to Director Wouter van Twiller in New Amsterdam: “We made a protest to William Holmes, Lieutenant and trader, against his settlement on the Fresh River. He refuses to leave.” (Signed, Jacob van Curler, Frederick Lubbertsen, and Carel Fransen 25 Oct. 1633.)

I am seeking all genealogical and biographical details for the family documented below including their ancestors, children, and grandchildren and the spouses thereof, including the full names of those spouses' parents. All additions and corrections within this scope, however speculative, will be greatly appreciated. Frederick Lubbertsen of New Amsterdam I am indebted to Dr. Edward Rockstein for generously sharing his research on Frederick Lubbertsen. Technically speaking, Frederick's patronymic should be rendered as Lubbertszen but Lubbertsen was the form used by Frederick himself. 1. FREDERICK1 LUBBERTSEN was born in Amsterdam, Holland, Netherlands 1606 and died in Brooklyn, Kings County, New York 22 November 1679; he ws first married in the Netherlands to STYNTJE JANS. Styntje was born in the Netherlands circa 1607 and died in New Amsterdam in 1657. Frederick married second in New Amsterdam, Kings County, New York on 17 August 1657 TRYNTJE HENDRICKSE, widow of Cors Pietersen Vroom and daughter of Hendrick Tomassen and Elsie Martense. On 25 December 1662 Frederick and Tryntje were living in Brooklyn; they were listed there as members of the Reformed Dutch Church. Obviously, Frederick was the son of a man named Lubbert. In the Ancestral File of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, some researchers have stated that Frederick was the son of Lubbert Albertsz and Aeltje Jansd of Amsterdam, North Holland. Any evidence to support or refute that possibility would be greatly appreciated. In the records of the New Amsterdam Reformed Dutch Church, we find several baptisms that were witnessed by Frederick and or one of his wives. On 8 December 1641, a Styntie Jans witnessed the baptism of Rammetje, daughter of Hans Janszen van Noorstrant. On 21 May 1646, Fredrick Lubbertszen witnessed the baptism of Nicolaes, son of Barent Janszen. On 25 June 1646, a Styntje Fredricks witnessed the baptism of Paulyntie, daughter of Jan Stephenszen the schoolmaster. On 26 February 1651, Frederick Lubbertszen & wife witnessed the baptism of his granddaughter Christina, daughter of Jacob Leendertszen [Van der Grift and Rebecca Fredericks]. On 16 January 1656, Frederick Lubbertszen witnessed the baptism of Jacobus, son of Jan Peeck and Maria de Terwick. © 1999 d Perry Streeter d 3273 NYS Route 248 d Canisteo, NY 14823 d d d 4 October 2002 FREDERICK LUBBERTSEN OF NEW AMSTERDAM 2 On 8 May 1658, Fredrick Lubbertszen and Tryntje Hendricks witnessed the baptism of Wyntie, daughter of Pieter Stoutenburg and Aefje Van Tienhoven. On 3 December 1662 Frederick Lubbertsen and Annetien Jans witnessed the baptism of Sara, daughter of another one of my direct ancestors, Jan1 Pieterszen van Huysum and his wife, Grietje Jans. "Freric Lubbertsen" is as he signed his name. He emigrated to this country at an early period, residing at first in New Amsterdam as early as 1639, where in 1641, he was one of the "12 men to whom the trouble with the Indians was referred," (Source?) 23 May 1640 he obtained a patent for a large tract covering most of South Brooklyn. 4 September 1645, he obtained a patent for another plantation in Brooklyn, to which he removed; and was magistrate from 1653 to 1655 and again in 1673. Lubbertsen was a slave owner. There was a bill of sale of a "Negro from Frederick Lubbertsen to Richard Lordt. The Negro's name was Antony and Lubbertsen transferred true ownership to employ the said Negro during his life time in all such work as the said Richard Lordt shall think proper." Dated November 28, 1647. (Virginia ?, correspondence [1999]). Recall that Frederick Lubbertsen was one of the early owners of land in the area of Brooklyn on Long Island. He received a grant to lands in Brooklyn in 1640 and another in 1645. It has been speculated that he didn't move to Long Island until after receiving the grant in 1645. There are records showing him as a magistrateintheareaofwhatisnowBrooklynin1653to1655andin1673. I've seen it reported that Frederick Lubbertsen lived from 1606 to 1679 and was possibly the son of Lubbert Albertsz and Aeltje Jansd. It is believed that Frederick Lubbertsen came to America from Amsterdam with his wife Styntje Jans (b. abt 1607, d. 1657). In 1657, after the death of Styntje, Frederick married Tryntje Hendrickse, daughter of Hendrick Thomassen and Elsie Martense and the widow of Cors (Cornelius) Pietersen Vroom. In 1662 Frederick and his wife Tryntje were living on Long Island. (Dr. Edward D. Rockstein, correspondence, 22 September 2002) Frederick wrote his will on 22 November 22, 1679; it was proved on 10 July 1693: Will of Frederick Lubberse and Tryntie Hendrickse, his wife. Daughter, Elsie married Jacob Hansen. Testators also bequeathed to her a farm and one third interest in residuary estate. To Rebecca the sum of six hundred guilders wampum. To daughter Aeltie a farm. To son Peter and Hendrick Corson a farm. Also one-third in the said farm to then brother Cornelius Corson. Testatrix bequeaths all gold and silver belonging to her body to her two daughters, share and share alike. Residuary estate divided among the children. The executors were not named but the will was witnessed by William Bogardus. It was recorded in Liber 1 of conveyances on page 315. © 1999 d Perry Streeter d 3273 NYS Route 248 d Canisteo, NY 14823 d d d 4 October 2002 FREDERICK LUBBERTSEN OF NEW AMSTERDAM 3 Child, by Styntje Jans: i.
