  • CLAUDE LE MAITRE (Delamater)1, the ancestor of all who inherit the name in the United States, was a native of Richebourg, in Artois, France, and had sprung from an old family in Picardy, originally from Brittany. In relation to these ancestors, and a narrative of the motives which induced him to leave his native land, and other particulars, the reader is referred to the introduction to this volume, which will be found quite full and specific on many points. On the 24th of April, 1652, Claude married at Amsterdam, Holland, Hester, a daughter of Pierre Du Bois, of that city ; though late of Canterbury, England, where Hester was born. Du Bois, like Le Maitre and others, had been prompted by the religious intolerance of France in those times to seek that freedom abroad, which was not then secure at home. The spirit of adventure invited them across the sea.
  • Claude and Hester Le Maitre came to America and made their home at Flatbush (Midwout), from 1652 till 1662 ; where four of their children, Jan, Abraham, Isaac and Susanna were born. They then removed to Harlem, where two others, Hester and Jacobus, were born.
  • This became their home the remainder of their days.
  • .... His death occured about 1683. Hester, his widow survived him many years. Their children were :
    • 1 i Jan (John)2, b. at Flatbush, 1653 ; m. Ruth, a daughter of Resolved Waldron, and operated extensively in real estate. He d. 1702, leaving

    • 3 iii Isaac Le Maitre2 b. 1658 ; m., about 1681, Cornelia Evarts, of Albany ; he served the town in various offices ; his home was in Harlem, where he raised an interesting family ; their children were: i.

  • A son of Jacobus, Isaac, and a daughter of Isaac, Rebecca in intermarrying, in 1717, became the parents of a large family, of which some branches have furnished pretty full records for this volume. It will be remembered that their descendants sustain the same relation to both Jacobus and Isaac, sons of Claude Le Maitre and their descendants.
  • This intermarriage of three of the sons of Isaac Le Maitre with three daughters of Johannes Kip, in 1752, and 1765; eventually occasioned the consideration of interests which have led to the accumulation of many records, which are to be preserved in this volume.

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,

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.

  • Sometime prior to 1693, Simon Van Ness married Rachel Van Duesen, daughter of Melchert Van Deusen and Engeltje Rutgers Van Schoender- woert of the Albany area. Their first child, Anna, was baptized on March 26, 1693 at the Albany Reformed Church. Simon's parents were the witnesses.
  • Apparently Simon's wife Rachel died in New Jersey circa 1700, for he returned to New York City to marry on Jan. 15, 1701, Hester DeLamater, daughter of Isaac DeLamater and Cornelia Everts. She had been baptized at Albany in 1683 but was living with her parents at Harlem at the time of marriage. Simon probably had known either Hester or her parents in New York City or Albany.
