Biography

Grietje was named as their child and as the wife of Peter Claessen of Amersfoort, in a document dated 21 March 1664 where Cornelis secured the property for their children of his first wife, Mayeke Hendricx van den Burghgraeff. [1]

Grietje Van Ness from "The Wyckoff Family in America"[2]

The Wyckoff Family in America, A Genealogy in Two Volumes, 3rd !Edition, Volume One !Descendants of Nicholas Wyckoff, Published by The Wyckoff House and Association, Inc. Gateway Press, Inc. Baltimore, 1934/1980.

Grietje Van Ness, the mother of this great family, should also have consideration. She contributed much to the family she helped to found. Even among the Dutch of that time there were distinctions of station, and she ranked high. Many of the plain people carried no family name. With them there was the coupling of the name of father and child, like Pieter Claesen, meaning Pieter, son of Claes. Others of higher social or property advantages carried a family name from one generation to another. Grietje Van Ness was of this latter class. She was the daughter of Cornelis Hendrick Van Ness and Maycke Hendrieux van der Burchgraeff. Cornelis was the son of Hendrick Gerritse Van Ness of Ameland, Holland.

Maycke was the daughter of Hendrick Adriense van der Burchgraeff and Annetje Janse of Laeckervelt, Holland. These surnames indicate that these families were of high rank and some wealth. The will of Annetje Jans, widow of Hendrick Adriens, dwelling at Laeckervelt, divides her estate between her son and her daughter Maycke, and provides that Maycke shall have the use of this estate during her lifetime, and that it shall then be divided among the six children of said Maycke, whom she names as follows

  1. Gerritie Cornelis, wife of Roeloff Cornelissen
  2. Hendricke Cornelis, wife of Jan Jensen van Dothout
  3. Hendrick
  4. Gerrit
  5. Jan
  6. Grietje Cornelis, wife of Pieter Claesen of Amersfoort, Long Island

Maycke died before her husband, but he carried out her wishes. Thus Grietje Van Ness, when she married Pieter Claesen, brought to him wealth as well as rank. Grietje outlived her husband, who died in 1694. She died between 1699 and 1703, and was buried beside her husband in Flatlands, Long Island.

Pieter Claus Wyckoff married Grietje Van Ness, daughter of Hendrick Van Ness, circa 1649. Children of Pieter Claus Wyckoff and Grietje Van Ness:

Note H206 A Hendricks Family supplement shows Grietje married to Pieter Claes Wyckoff. My research shows Claes Cornelissen but I suspect she was married twice. The Long Island Dutch records in H icksville, Long Island New York Public Library are my source.[O'Bryan extended Family tree.FTW]

I saved the data to the bios. Disregard the alternate death September 11, 1689 because that date instead belongs to her sister Gerritje in Jersey City, it is sourced on her gravestone as I recall, and these data points have been conflated between these sisters repeatedly in the numerous source trees. Thanks!

Van Ness-136 and Van Ness-32 appear to represent the same person because: By the marriage date, I think it is clear that she was intended to be the same as this woman, but with a confused husband. He can either be detached or merged away later into the correct husband, but let's merge her profile into the established NNS PPP, to get rid of this pointless match. Thanks!

I saved the data to the bios. This match has a marriage date March 1645 which is worth keeping, and it also appears to be a 1645/1646 double date from the olde calendar, which explains the 1646 date on the other profile. So I would inclied to eventually keep it as March 1646, because that would match the majority of months in the later part of the year by our modern calendar. Thanks!

A couple issues here:

1) Gerritie Cornelis Van Ness : This instead is the name of the older sister. This woman who married Pieter Claesz Wyckoff was named Griteje. I am going to change the name before merge to avoid confusion.

2) Born about 1624 in Of Flatbush, Brooklyn, Kings, New York : That early date seems more for the older sister Gerritje, than this Grietje, born 1627. And Brooklyn is unlikely.

3) Died September 11, 1689 in Flatlands, Aermsfoot, Long Island, Ny. The 1689 date is for the older sister Gerritje, who died and is buried in Jersey City, New Jersey.

Despite these confusions from the original import, I left the profile as a match for Grietje, because she seems to have husband and child attachments for the Pieter Wyckoff line, and not for Gerritje's NJ van Houtens
