About Roeloff Hendricksen

Roeloff Hendricksen was the brother of Hilltje Hendrickse, Femmetje Hendrickse (van Mepple) and Annatje Hendricks. He was not the brother of Mackye van den Oever.


Femmetje's sister, they say, was named Hilletje, and their brother's name was Roeloff. Hilletje, widow of the soldier Andries Barentsen, married Albert Jansen of Steenwyck in 1664. Later that year, Roeloff (now a carpenter) married Aeltje Lubberse of Elburgh. Also in 1664, Femmetje and Joost's daughter Maertje was baptized; the witnesses were Roeloff, Hilletje, and Albert Jansen. Not till Joost married Lysbet four years later was there any authenticated tie between these siblings and Maycken—other than their all hailing from Meppel, and having fathers named Hendrick.

Femmetje Hendricks husband was Joost Adriaensen Vermeulen aka Pynacker. Joost made a will 26 Sep. 1665 naming his wife Femmetje Hendricks, dau Marietje (bapt. 13 Jul. 1664) and makes "Albert Janse van Steenwyck and Roeloff Hendrickse BOTH his brothers in law" executor.

Typical fare was 36 florins; half that for young children; and nothing for nursing infants. FN 1

These accounts that they were made up from the records of the West India Company, by order of the English rulers after the confiscation of the Company's property in New Netherland, and as assets of or debts due the Company, and to be collecte d by the English. The list seems to stop with the Eendracht which arrived on 19 July 1664. (The English took over in Sept 1664 so that may have been the last passenger ship to arrive before that date.)
