Grietje was an heiress, ultimately of Hendrick Adriense van der Burchgraeff and Annetje Janse of Laeckervelt in Holland. This came through Cornelis Hendrick Van Ness and Maycke Hendrieux van der Burchgraeff. She brought Pieter Claesen wealth as well as rank, and Grietje was well educated.

Pieter Claesen Wyckoff and Cornelis Hendrick Van Ness engaged in prolonged controversy with Van Slichtenhorst, the autocratic director of the colony, which ended when Pieter left the colony in June 1649 and Van slichtenhorst was arrested on 18 April 1652 by order of Pieter Stuyvesant, director of the colony. Considering the prominence of Cornelis Van Ness, one can but wonder what old world connection between the two families there may have been which led to the marriage of Grietje and Pieter, who had so recently been a laborer. Her superior education and rank must have been of immense importance to her young husband when he took up his new duties in Amersfoort.
