About Hendrick Cornelissen van Buren

Cornelis lived near Buurmalsem, Gelderland, Holland. He came to New Netherland twice under 3-year contracts to Kiliaen van Rensselaer. He emigrated in 1631 as a young man on the Holland ship “d’Eendracht” (The Unity) and settled in Rensselaerwyck, near Fort Orange. When his contract was over in 1634, Cornelis sailed back to Holland.

He returned to Fort Orange, New Netherland a second time, permanently, on the ship “Rensselaerwyck” in 1636 with his wife. Catalyntje Marense Van Alstyne (1619-1648) gave birth on January 30, 1637 to a son, Hendrick Cornelisse Van Buren, onboard ship at sea before arriving in New Netherland in April, 1637. A second son, Marten Cornelissen Van Buren, was born in 1638.
