About Patience Cornelius


Patientia (Patience) Patrick was a daughter of Daniel Patrick and Anneken Van Beyeren, born circa 1636.

She married Arent Cornelius.[1] They married some time before 19 May 1662. The will of her grandmother, created on that date, identifies her as "Patientia Patrick, wife of Arent Cornelius of Flushing Zeeland, and living in Flushing, Long Island, New Netherland."[2] In several published sources, Patience is erroneously identified as the second wife of Arent Cornelius.[3]

They resided at Flushing, Long Island, New Netherland (later New York).

Her husband made his will on 25 November 1694 and died at Flushing, Long Island, New York, some time before 30 July 1696, when his estate was divided among his children.[2]

Children (last name Cornelius) of Arent Cornelius and Patience Patrick were:

  1. John, married at Flushing on 7 August 1682 to Mary Yates, daughter of Francis Yates.[4] He was the eldest son and proper heir.
  2. Ann, died 28 February 1695.[5] Birth est. 1664.
  3. Daniel.[5]
  4. Elias married circa 1701 to Sarah Harned or Hanchet; died circa 1718.[5] Born est. 1675.
  5. Mary, was residing at her widowed mother's household in Flushing, New York, in 1698.[6]
