Barent Jacobsen Kool was born in Holland about 1610. He died about 1676 in Kingston, Ulster Co., New York. Barent Jacobsen Kool was the son of Jacob Arendsen Kool and Aeltje Dirckse. Jacob Arendsen Kool was born 1580 in Vyfretch, Holland. His son Barent Jacobsen Kool came to America in the services of the West-India Company. He was married in 1637 in Holland to Marretje Leendertse De Graeuw, the daughter of Leendert Arentzen and Leuntie Alberts (Lydecker) De Graeuw, a member of one of the Walloon families who were the first settlers of New Amsterdam. The baptisms of their nine children all appear on the records of the Reformed Dutch Church of New Amsterdam, except that of his eldest son, Jacob Barentsen Cool, who was born in 1639. The De Graeuws came to America in 1638 in the ship Dolphin.
It is possible. that Barent Jacobsen Cool came over with Peter Minuit in 1625. However, beginning with 1633, he can be traced through civil records, and, beginning with 1640, he can be traced through church and civil records down to 1665. Barent Jacobsen Cool sailed to New Amsterdam, on one of his sailings possibly from Amsterdam as a sailor in late 1632 on the ship Soutberg, which arrived in April 1633 with 140 soldiers. At that time, New Amsterdam, now New York City, had a population of only 400 to 500 people. On June 8, 1633, he and six others signed a treaty with the Sickename Indians for purchasing land on the Connecticut River. Barent's group also built a trading house called "The House of Good Hope" and fortified it with several cannons. This was done to halt English exploration of the land.

Vande Cuyle-1 and Van de Cuyl-3 appear to represent the same person because: I am convinced now that this is the same man. No tree conflicts. My earlier reservations about the conflicting sons Corenlis with the bad patronymic and questionable birth date have been resolved. See Comments on the profiles. I saved data to the bios. Thanks!

I think this was intended to be the same man as Barent Van_de_Cuyl-3, although the dates and patronymics on the match are a a bit of a muddle, so I would hold off on the merge.

The wife looks to be the same, but I need to look at it more closely.

The son Cornelius has the right patronymic to be the son of Barent. But the matching son Cornelius is from a later generation, and also has the wrong patronymic, Theunis, so he cannot be the son of Barent.

Let's just leave it all Unmerged Match until we get better clarity on this line.

Another New Netherland Kool line starts here in the 1610s with this ancestor

It looks to be a completely independent line, because I cannot spot any common descendants, ancestors, or patronymics between them, and the dates in the tree there all appear to be orderly as well.
