This day, date underwritten, before me Cornelis Van Tienhoven, secretary, in the presence of the undersigned witnesses, appeared Wolphert Gerritsen and Gerrit Wolphertsen, as guardians of Lambert Cornelissen Cool, and at the request of said Lambert Cool, have permitted him to go with his cattle to his brother-in-law Claes Jansen, in order to take up together some plantation or farm, and we the principals in the capacity aforesaid have consented hereto as we are bound in the place of father and mother to promote the above named Lambert Cool's interest and we cannot perceive that he will earn anything, much less prosper so long as he remains with his father, Cornelis Lambertsen. We have therefore considered it advisable to permit him to do something for himself in company aforesaid. Done at Fort Amsterdam the 22 of August 1639.
This is the mark x of Wolphert Gerritsen

"Copied with slight variations from E.B. O'Callaghan's manuscript translation of the original in the New York Colonial MSS., Vol. I, p. 155, which was destroyed in the Capitol fire of March 29, 1911, Albany, October 4, 1933; signed A.J.F. van Laer."
On March 11, 1647, Gerrit Wolphertson (Van Kouwenhoven) received a patent for "a certain piece of land, gouat the (Ma) Rechawieck, both the maize and woodland, on the marsh of the Gouwanus Kil, between the land of Jacob Stoffelsen and Frederick Lubbertsen, extending from the aforsaid marsh till into the woods, till to the land of said Frederick, till to the land of Andries Huddle, northeast by north, a little northerly, 148 rods: behind through the woods, till to the land of the aforesaid Jacob Stoffelsen, southeast by east 80 rods next to the land of Jacob Stoffelsen aforesaid, till to the aforsaid marsh, southwest a little westerly 165 rods, along the marsh to the place of beginning 60 rods, with an oblique outpoint: amounting in all to 29 morgens, 341 rods." Pattents, GG, 172
This plot evidently fronted on the main road leading from Flatbush, through the village of Breuckelen, which was located at this point, to "the Ferry," and is included in lands marked as G. Martense's on Butt's map. Wolphertsen sold this property to Nicholas Jans, baker, of New York.
↑ Erik Rasmussen had death as January 24, 1635 in Flatlands, Kings County, Brooklyn, New Amsterdam; most others have 1645; 1647 patent shows he was alive at that time.
