Children

2nd Marriage

  • 1669 16 Jun; Evert Pieterszen, wid Grietje Arents; Hillegondt Joris, wid Jan Corneliszen

NA DRC Marriages 1639-1801


His wife, Hillegond Joris, joined the church on 2 July 1662 (ibid. 75), and both of these may have been re-entries or on summary lists of members. Hillegond Joris and a Jan Corneliszen whom we may assume was her husband appear together on 12 July 1654 and he last appears on the baptismal register, 25 July 1666.

Jan died not long after that, for, with banns dated 16 June 1669, Hillegond Joris, as widow of Jan Corneliszen, married Mr. Evert Pietersen Keteltas, widower of Grietje Arents. He was a school teacher, and he and Hillegond lived in the old Van Hoorn home on the south side of present Stone Street, between William and Broad Streets in about 1674 and in 1686. At this time both were shown as members of the Dutch Reformed Church (Holl. Soc. Yearb. 1896:173; 1916:30). Hillegond was a midwife, and from 21 April 1655 was one of the official midwives of the city. She was recently called "the famous midwife" (Record 72:291). She appeared as a witness of the baptisms of numerous children, many of whom are of no traceable relationship to her, the first one on 27 Sept. 1643. On 7 March 1670/1 Evert Pietersen and wife Hillegon Joris asked the Court to "authorize some persons to compose if possible the differences arising between the above named Hillegont Joris and her children by a former marriage relative to their father's property." The difficulty must not have been serious or of long duration, for Hillegond continued to witness the baptisms of her grandchildren, the last time on 4 July 1683.

Children: . . .

i. Cornelis Jansen. . . .

ii. Joris Jansen. . . .

iii. Neeltje Jans.

A child named Vroutje was baptized 12 Dec. 1643 in the Dutch Reformed Church in New Amsterdam as the child of Hillegond Joris and without witnesses. On 7 July 1644, Tryntje Jonas, the official midwife, made a declaration "respecting a confession of Hillegond Joris as to the paternity of her child." On the 9th and 11th of July four persons declared that "Hellegond Joris had said that Jan, the pilot of the Seven Seas, was the father of her newly born child." On the 14th the Fiscal (Sheriff) brought suit against Laurens Cornelissen, skipper of the Maid of Enckhuysen, for (1) smuggling, (2) adultery with Hellegond Joris, and (3) speaking disrespectfully of the director-general (the second charge having been denied under oath on 28 July, it was dismissed) [Calendar of Dutch MSS 28, 89 f.].
