  • Glaude Le Maistre, or Delamater, as usually written by his descendants, had sprung from an ancient house of Brittany, the Lords of Garlaye, whose chateau and estates lay in the parish of Derval, in the diocese of Nantes. It was eminent in the civil and military service, the church, and the law. Its members had held commands in Picardy, where one of its now scattered branches, in which the name Claude first appears, became allied

  • early in the sixteenth century to the lords of Caumartin. Claude Le Maistre, Sieur De Hedicourt, becoming a Protestant, was, with others, imprisoned and fined at Amiens in 1588, at the instance of the League. He was a man of talent and spirit, and showed great valor in opposing the entrance of the Spaniards into that city in 1597, when soldiers in the garb of peasants, selling apples and nuts, had gained admission. Our Glaude Le Maistre was no doubt of this family, members of which had removed to Artois, where he was born, as before said, in the town of Richebourg. After escaping the country he comes to notice at Amsterdam, in 1652, an exile and a widower, living in the Tanners' cross-street, having lost his wife, Jeanne De Lannoy. On April 24th of that year he married Hester, daughter of Pierre Du Bois, of Amsterdam, though late of Canterbury, England, where Hester was born. Some of the Le Maistres had also taken refuge at Canterbury, and circumstances make it nearly certain that Glaude was among them, and with the Du Boises had left England because of the civil wars then raging, or the threatened rupture with Holland, and, perhaps, in his case, to take ship for New Netherland, as he soon did, appearing with Tourneur first at Flatbush, and afterward at Harlem.

  • Glaude le Maistre, born 1620, as his autograph is, ancestor of the entire Delamater family in this country, having died before the date of the Dongan patent, his widow, Hester, and sons Jan and Isaac, took his place among the patentees. An exile from his home at Richebourg, in Artois, it was while living in the Loyerdwarsstraet, at Amsterdam, April 24, 1652, that Glaude married Hester Du Bois, who was his second wife (his first wife having been Jeanne De Lannoy) , and, as we have seen, also of a French refugee family. Glaude spent some of his first years in America at Flatbush, working as a carpenter, and there four of his six children were born. With Meyndert Coerten, Walraven Luten, Pierre Billiou and others (Mrs. Billiou, a Du Bois, was probably related to Mrs. Delamater*), he applied, August 22, 1661,

On November 6, 1687, Claude's widow married Jan Tibout, the parish clerk. In view of this event, she and Tibout had entered into an agreement, September 23, preceding, with her sons Jan and Isaac, and son-in-law Bussing (who together took the real estate, having power to do so from the absent heirs, Abraham and Jacobus Delamater, and Moses Le Count), by which she was to "have the free use of the house and erf at the strand," while she lived, and Jan and Isaac were to pay her twenty-seven schepels of wheat yearly. "Should any land be drawn during Hester du Bois' lifetime, it shall belong to them both, to wit, Jan Tibout and Hester Du Bois."

The will was proved September 9, 1703, only a few days before the widow married Henry Bogert, of Marbletown, to which place she removed with some of her children. The Hoorn's Hook farm and other lands of Jan Delamater were sold, in 1710, to Samuel Waldron.
