About Coenraedt Ten Eyck

one of the signers of the petition to surrender New Amsterdam


  • *Revised history of Harlem (city of New York). Its origin and early annals, prefaced by home scenes in the fatherlands; or, notices of its founders before emigration. Also, sketches of numerous families and the recovered history of the land-titles .. (1904)
  • Joseph Waldron, "living near the hoeck of Passenger Street," in Amsterdam, and on the eve of his second marriage, appeared before the orphan master, May 12, 1649, according to custom, and gave bonds for the maintenance of his two children by his late wife, Aeltie Hendricks; as "the children by the former marriage had no property." One of these perhaps was left at Amsterdam with its grandmother, Maria Goverts, since it is not named in our records here, and Waldron was wont to order part of his salary to be paid his said mother. The last time noticed was on August 30, 1661, being two months' wages, 48 florins. He was butler to the garrison, and had charge of the magazine of the company. Waldron died in 1663. Just before his end, sending for a notary to draw up his will, he said "there would be nothing left, of his widow, who intended to leave for the Fatherland." Upon these representations and it appearing that there were "six minor children, two of whom are of a former marriage," the orphan's court of New Amsterdam, December 10, 1663, at the desire of the widow Annetie Daniels, appointed Resolved Waldron, "her husband's brother," and Hendrick Jensen Vander Vin, "who is her oldest and most intimate friend," as gardians of her surviving children. It is uncertain whether she visited Holland, as she was married here, in 1668 to Harman Smeeman, and again, in 1682, to Coenraet Ten Eyck. Joseph Waldron's children known to us were Sarah, Daniel, Mary, Anna, Deborah and John. Deborah died in infancy, and John, when not quite 8 years old was accidentally killed in his step-father's mill, January 23, 1669. Sarah, born about 1646, at Amsterdam, married, in 1662, Jan Gerritsen Van Voorst, and in 1666 Laurens Jansen Colevelt, by whom she had children whose descendants are yet found. Mary, born 1652, married Hendrick Gerritsen Blauvelt (see page 363), and Anna, born 1657, married John Delamontagne. To her son Daniel and son-in-law Delamontagne, Annetie Daniels, then for the third time a widow, conveyed some city property, May 10, 1688. She was afterward allowed pay by government "for tending sick soldiers." Daniel Waldron, born 1650, at Amsterdam, married, in 1673, Sarah Rutgers, daughter of Rutger Willemsen. .... etc.

Castello Plan Notes

Block D; No. 18

Coenraet Ten Eyck, the tanner, bought the land from Burger Jorissen, before 1651, [2] on which he built this house. In 1686, Derick Ten Eyck, also a tanner, lived in it.-Selyns's List, in N. Y. Hist. Soc. Collections, 1841, p. 395. To him was entrusted the care of the well mentioned in No. 17 (ante). In 1791, Abraham Ten Eyck's heirs sold the property to Benjamin Seixas.-Liber Deeds, XLVII: 529-34. In this deed, the dimensions in English feet and inches agreed perfectly with the Dutch measurements made one hundred and forty years earlier. Site: 76 Broad Street.

For Coenraet Ten Eyck, see Block C, Nos. 28 and 31, as follows.

Nos. 28, 29, 30, AND 31
Coenraet Ten Eyck, tanner and master shoemaker, built these four houses. His tan pits and the tannery sheds in the rear are not pictured, although they are mentioned in the real estate records as early as March, 1658, and as late as April, 1665.-Liber Deeds, A: 126-7; Patents, II: 43 (Albany).
The northerly house (No.3 I) and the lot between Nos. 30 and 31 were sold to Daniel Tourneur, May 3 I, 1660.-Liber Deeds, A: 219. Therefore, Nos. 28 to 30 were owned by Ten Eyck, and NO.3 1 by Tourneur, at the time of the Plan. Coenraet Ten Eyck retained his lots until 1683.-Liber Deeds, XIII: 21, 60. At the time of his death, Ten Eyck lived in the large house on the north-east corner of Coenties Slip and Pearl Street, shown on the Burgis View of 1716-18 (Plate 25). His will, dated November 5, 1688, was made when he was" sickly abed." He died" soon after the making .of the will." This instrument is not of record in New York County, but is in the possession of Mr. Ten Eyck's descendants.
