About Marritje Sybrantsz

IMPORTANT NOTE: the parents of Marritje Pieters are currently unknown (2021).

According to Hoffman, the following three women were probably sisters: "There were three sisters named Pieters from Hoorn: Sara, wife of Jan Janszen Schepmoes from Delft; Elizabeth, wife of Dirck Mayers from Hoorn; and Marietje. (...) Details (...) are mainly based on part of unpub. Mss. captioned "Colonists from Hoorn," by William J. Hoffman, in library of New York Genealogical & Biographical Soc." Source: de Halve Maen, XLIV, no. 2 (July, 1969).

It is improbable that any of these Pieters women is a child of Pieter van Naerden. Please disreguard the occasional connections being made by copy-and-paste genealogists with the van Naerden family.

According to page 301 of volume 2 of the Iconography of Manhattan Island, Claes Sybrantsen de Veringh owned lot 15 in block M. His widow, who remarried with Brant Peelen, was mentioned as the owner of the property after Claes' death.

After Marritje's death, Jan Jansen Schepmoes, husband of Sara Pieters, became the guardian of her two children, Sybrant Claeszen and Aeltje Claes.
