From http://vanblar.com/9_Lubbert-Gysbertsen-VanBlarcom

Lubbert Gysbertsen was born in Blaricum, about 12 English miles southeast of Amsterdam, in the district called Gooiland.1 By trade, Lubbert was a rademaecker (wheelwright and wagon maker). He was husband to Divertje Cornelis and father of Gysbert, Thys and Jan. Lubbert and his family came to New Netherland on contract with Kiliaen van Rensselaer, the patroon of Rensselaerwyck in New Netherland (on both banks of the Hudson near Fort Orange, now Albany, New York).1 Upon arrival Lubbert would have a 3-year period to repay expenses to van Rensselaer. During this time, Lubbert could not quit his trade and he could not work for others except through the patroon's agent.1

Early on, the family lived on a farm at Bethlehem, just south of Albany on the west side of the Hudson River. Later, Lubbert was given a Dutch patent for 50 morgens (100 acres) of land on Bergen Neck, now in the Greenville area (just south of Jersey City).1

Lubbert would meet his demise some time between December 5, 1654, when his patent was granted, and May 1, 1656, when his widow and son-in-law requested permission to open a tavern. It is assumed he was killed during an Indian raid on New Amsterdam sparked by a Native American who was killed for stealing fruit from the orchards. During this time occupants of these lands were driven out of Bergen Neck and into Staten Island, which was also in ruins.

From THE FIRST VAN BLARICUMS IN NORTH AMERICA

"On 15 Apt. 1634 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, Kiliaen van Rensselaer, the patroon of Rensselaerwyck in New Netherland (on both banks of the Hudson near Fort Orange [now Albany], New York), signed a contract with Lubbert Gysbertsen van Blaricum , a 33-year old rademaecker [wheelwright and wagon maker] under which Lubbert was 'to betake himself with his wife and three children at his own expense,' the patroon to pay expenses to the Wester Indian Company for passage on the ship de Eendracht [The Unity], then being made ready to sail to New Netherland.

The contract provided for reimbursement of these expenses over a three-year period, which was to begin upon Lubbert's arrival in New Netherland. During this period, he could not quit the agreed-upon service, could not work for others except through the patroon's agent, and could not enter into private trading in furs, etc.

Lubbert's place of residence was to be chosen 'with the advice and consent of the patroon's agents where he can most conveniently perform his work, namely his trade as a wagon maker or wheelwright, for which he shall take all the necessary tools with him from here at his own expense' (VRBM 285ff).

"Lubbert's birthplace of Blaricum is about 12 English miles southeast of Amsterdam, in the district called Gooiland. The Van Rensselaer records give the name of his wife and the names and ages of the children at the time they left The Netherlands; but for his wife, Divertje Cornelis, we do not have a birthplace nor her age in 1634 or at any other time.

The eldest son, Gysbert, was ten years old in 1634, and had been born 'Uij't de Beemster in Noordt Holland.' This is the district north of Amsterdam along the IJsselmeer [Zuider Zee]. Thys was six, and had been born in 'de Rijp in Noordt Holland.' Jan was one and a half years old, and had been born in dam. These last two birthplaces are within the Beemster area, so it seems safe to assume that, although Lubbert was born in Blaricum, he had lived during his married life in the Beemster area. It is likely that his wife had lived there before their marriage.

"The last lighter with supplies and people for Rensselaerwyck left Amsterdam on 24 Apr. 1634 and sailed up the IJsselmeer to the Texel--the southernmost on the West Frisian Islands, at the mouth of the IJsselmeer. A total of six men, one women and three children were bound for Rensselaerwyck when de Eendracht sailed with favorable winds from the Texel early in May 1634.

"If the ship followed the usual route, she sailed down the North Sea and through the English Channel to Plymouth or some other port in southern England. There her water and other provisions would be replenished and she would sail south until she entered the northeast trade winds. This route continued south, past the Madeira and Canary Islands, 'until the butter melts,' as one rule of thumb had it. This point was usually on or near the Tropic of Cancer. Thence the course was west, sailing before the trades.

About a month after entering the trades, having reached a point about north of the Lesser Antilles, the ship would be turned northwest to the North American mainland and New Netherland. Passengers slept in the hold or on a pallet on deck. Passengers usually had to provide their own food and the means for preparing it. Occasionally, the diet could be varied by catching a fish."

"Lubbert's account at Rensselaerwyck was opened on 20 July 1634 which indicates that the trip from the Texel to Fort Orange took about two and a half months. The patroon had promised Lubbert 'the fourth farm to be established,' but we cannot tell from available records where Lubbert first lived or when he moved onto a farm. Later he did live on a farm at Bethlehem, just south of Albany on the west side of the Hudson River.

We know very little about the life of his family at Rensselaerwyck, but he must have found it to his liking, for he stayed long beyond his stipulated three years.

"His account with the colony was closed in 1647, having run a total of 13 years. Divertje, his wife, witnessed the baptism of young Halmagh Roelofsen Van Houten in New Amsterdam on 25 June 1648. From these facts we may safely conclude that Lubbert and his family moved from the vicinity of Albany to New Amsterdam in late 1647 or early 1648.

"On 5 Dec. 1654, Lubbert Gysbertsen was given a Dutch patent for 50 morgens [100 acres] of land on Bergen Neck, below Cavan Point now in the Greenville area south of Jersey City, NJ. Just south of him was his son-in-law, Jan Cornelis Buys, with 25 Morgens, and then his son Jan Lubbertsen, also with 25 morgens.

Just when these farms were first occupied is not known, but Lubbert Gysbertsen and others were living in New Jersey, presumably on this same land, before the patents were granted. An evidence of this is the fact that Lubbert's granddaughter Tryntje Oosteroom, who was baptized in New Amsterdam on 16 Aug. 1654, was given in her marriage record as born in New Jersey.

"On 15 Sep. 1655, after an Indian had been killed in New Amsterdam for stealing fruit from an orchard, a large war party of Indians terrified the occupants of New Amsterdam for several hours, all of the Dutch soldiers being at the time on the Delaware, fighting the Swedes. The Indians then went across the Hudson where, within a few hours, they burned the Dutch bouweries and plantations and killed or captured everyone who had not fled. They then moved down Bergen Neck and over to Staten Island, which was also devastated. The following account differs slightly from some earlier reports:

' . . . in three days time about 50 Christians were killed and murdered, more than one hundred, mostly women and children, captured, of whom we afterward ransomed 60 to 70 at great expense, the rest being still in their hands, 28 bouweries and some plantations and about 12 to 15 thousand schepels of grain burned, 500 to 600 head of cattle either killed or taken by the barbarians;

. . . [they] have suffered through these barbarous Indians a damage of more than two hundred thousand gilders and more than 200 persons besides those who were killed or are still in captivity, have lost their possessions and have nothing left to procure food and clothing for themselves and their families must be a charge upon this city. (CDNY 13:50, 31 Oct. 1655)

"It seems probable that Lubbert was killed during this Indian raid, for the following entry appears in the minutes of the Court of Schepens and Burgomasters of New Amsterdam under date of 1 May 1656:

'Jan Corns. Buys, alias Jan Damen, and Lubbers Gysbertsen widow, request permission to tap, as they have been driven from their houses by the last trouble with the Indians. Whereon is endorsed: --Petitioners' request is granted like others.' (RNS 2:93).

"At least, he died sometime between 5 Dec. 1654, when his patent was granted, and 1 May 1656, when his widow and his son-in-law requested permission to open a tavern. Lubbert was about 55 years old when he died, and seems to have been the leader of the group that settled Bergen Neck, as he received twice as much land as his companions, who were mainly his sons and sons-in-law."
