About Jan Lubbertsen

Lubbert Gysbertsen and his wife Divertje Cornelis had seven children, including

    3.  Jan Lubbertsen:

            Jan was born about 1632 in Edam, a seaport town on the Isselmeer about twelve English miles north of Amsterdam, coming to America with his parents when he was two year old.  He married 7 June 1659 Magdaleentje Theunis “van Voorsthuysen.”  Huisen, her home town, is a seaport village a mile or so from Blaricum in Gooiland, North Holland.  Magdaleentje sailed to America 12 Feb. 1659 in de Trouw [The Faith] from the Netherlands arriving at Port Orange, New Netherlands less than three months before her marriage.  Since she came from a small village in the same area as where Jan’s father was born, it is probable that this was an arranged marriage.  In some records she was shown as Magdaleentje Janse, but her patronymic was Theunis, as shown on the passenger list and her marriage record.  The Janse comes from the not entirely unusual custom of a wife’s using a patronymic based on her husbands’ given name.  She died on 4 Sept. 1711 and was buried two days later as Magdelena, wife of Jan Lubbertsen Van Blarcum and so recorded in the Old Bergen Church records.  This appears to be the only known use of Van Blarcumn not as a last name, but as a way to identify his birth place.     This would suggest that Zabriskie, the author of the article on this family, was from this line.  However, I did not follow this any further.  Jan Lubbertsen and his wife Magdaleentje Theunis had eleven children as shown in the decendacy chart above.  The date of his death is not known.
