About Huybert Lambertse Brink

LAMBERT HUYBERTSE1 married HENDRICKJE CORNELISSE while in the Netherlands and before his emigration to America,

In 1689 the Progenitor Lambert Huybertse gave a total of about 324 acres of land at Hurley to his oldest son Huybert Lambertsen, who was about 34, ond to the youngest son Pieter, who was but 19 years old at that time. The other son to whom Lambert gave property was Cornelius "part of the home farm" in Hurley—which Cornelius' son Egbert eventually inherited. Lambert had probably also financially supported Cornelius in purchasing property in Saugerties (in 1688).

It is supposed that Pieter sold out his share to Huybert and left to buy property on the New Jersey side of the Delaware. But in any case, for some reason Son Pieter was lured to the vast fertile land available on the Jersey Flats along the Delaware River,where he probably had visited when dreaming of farms of his own choosing—would he have made that choice if he had any premonition of the tragic end of his life there (and also of his grandchildren)? Pieter, and Huybert's sons Roelof and Thomas, along with Nicholas Schoonhoven, brother of Thomas' wife Fransyntjen Schoonhoven, were the first Brinks to explore that country and eventually settle along the Delaware in New Jersey.

it is assumed that Huybert's sons Roelof and Thomas were 31 and 30 years old at Huybert's death in about 1714 or 1715; Roelof was born in 1684 and Thomas was born in 1685. By 1720, Pieter had ten children and was lured to this land that was 100 miles south. He and Anthony Westbrook bought a large tract of land at Millville in Montague

where Pieter settled and continued to raise his family there. His oldest son, Matthew inherited the land, then it went to his grandson, Samuel, and eventually part of it was sold to Capt. Abram Shimer, where it is still known as the Shimer property.


The following is a translation of the will of Lambert Huybertse (Brink), of Hurley, the ancestor of the Brink family in America, who came from the Netherlands in 1659 and was one of the earliest settlers of 'Hurley, Ulster county, New York. He settled on the farm on the west side of the Esopus creek still in possession of a descendant bearing the family name. The will is recorded in the office of the county clerk of Ulster county and is translated from the original Dutch.


Be it known hereby to everybody, that to-day, the 12th day of February in the year of our Lord 1695/6, 1, Lambert Huybertse, of Hurley in the county of Ulster; well in body and in full power and use of my mind and memory, (praised be the Lord), considering the shortness and frailty of human life, the certainty of death and the uncertain hour thereof, and desiring to set everything in order, make this my last will and testament, in manner and form as follows: Revoking, annulling, declaring null and void, all and every testament and testaments, will and wills, heretofore made and passed, either verbally or in writing, and this alone to be taken far my last will and testament and no other.

First, I commend my soul to God Almighty, my Creator, to Jesus Christ, my Redeemer, and to the .Holy Spirit. my Sanctifier, and my body to the earth, whence it came, to be buried in a Christian manner, and there to, rest until my soul and body shall be reunited on the last day and enjoy the eternal joy of immortality, which God in his grace has promised and prepared by the only merits of our Saviour, for all who truly repent and believe in him. Concerning such wordly state of houses, lands, money, goods. accounts or what further belongs to my estate, which the Lord has been pleased to grant me beyond my merits, I order, give, and dispose thereof in form and manner following:

Secondly, I give to my youngest son, Pieter Lambertse two horses, also, that the house in which he lives, shall be finished in garret, floor doors, win- dows, &c., out of my estate without anything being paid therefor to my other heirs. I further give to my said son, his order, heirs, or administrators, one just fifth part of my whole estate.

Thirdly, I give to my sons, Huybert Lammerse and Cornelis Lammerse, and to my sons-in-law, Cornelis Cool and Arien Gerretsen, one just fifth part of my whole estate, to dispose, each for himself, of said fifth part of my estate, as he pleases, only under this condition, that Arien Gerretsen shall have and enjoy the just fifth part of my land, lying next to the land belonging to him, and that in consideration of the fertility of this land my other four heirs shall have and enjoy in ownership my house, barn, &c., without paying therefor anything to said Arie Gerretse. but they shall divide in equal shares all other movable estate among themselves

Fourthly, I appoint as executors of this my last will and testament my said heirs, to-wit, Huybert Lammertse, Cornelis Lammerse, Pieter Lammerse, Cornelis Cool, and Arie Gerretse, demanding this my foregoing testament shall be fully obeyed and carried out. Thus done at Kingston on the day and year as above.

Before signing and passing this it is my wish that my son-in- law Cornelis Cool shall have in one piece two shares of the land occupied by me, to wit, the one now made over to him, and the other bought by him from my son Lammert Huybertse.
