About Hilletje Gerritse Lansing


Hilletie Lansing was the daughter of New Netherland pioneers Gerrit Frederickse and Elizabeth Hendrix Lansing. She was born in Holland before her parents left for America.

By the mid-1660s, she had married Albany tavernkeeper/trader Storm Vanderzee. The marriage produced several children who established the Vanderzee family with an important Lansing connection in Albany and in the region.

Vanderzee died in 1679. A joint will left everything to his wife with provision that half the estate be divided among their children when they reached adulthood. At the same time, she stood to inherit a share of her father's estate in Holland.

Within a year, Hilletie had remarried. Her second husband was Willem Ketelhuyn - who took over her husband's tavern. As she was still in her twenties, Hilletie gave birth to at least three Ketelhuyn children over the next deade - with two sons being christened "Storm" in honor of her first husband.

The tavern was located beyond Albany's north gate. In 1697, she is included on the city census in the household of her husband.

Hilletie Lansing Vanderzee Ketelhuyn died before March 1715 when Ketelhuyn re-married.
