Biography

HENDRICK Heyndrix GULICK aka Heyndrick Heyndrix Van Gulick

Hendrick (Heyndrix) Gulick, a seaman, thought to be the son of Hendrick Gulick; and born at Nes (at Ameland, an island before the Dutch Frisian coast) widower to Jude Lubben. Hendrick married, on December 19, 1643, Geertie Jochems, widow to Pieter Janszoon, born at Meldorp. [1][2]

  • H.L. Kruime's letter is as follows: "Another remarkable marriage register is the register No. 460, folio 158,dated December 19th 1643: HEYNDRICK Heyndrix, born at Nes (at Ameland, another island before the Dutch Frisian coast) widower to Jude Lubben, to GEERTIE JOCHEMS, widow to Pieter Janszoon, born at Meldorp. Heyndrick Heyndrix was a sailor as well.".[3]
  • Meldorp is now known as Meldorf. Meldorf lies just inland from the North Frisian Islands; about 50 miles northeast of Hamburg, Germany. Hamburg is still the largest city within a 100-mile radius from Meldorf.

Hendrick Gulick emmigrated to New Amsterdam, New Netherland [now New York City] before May 1653, but died before 11 September 1653[4].; Hendrick Gulick was married to GEERTRUYT WILLEKENS (Jochem) of Hamburg, Germany.

Hendrick Gulick came to New Amsterdam as early as 1653. There are two pieces of evidence that support 1653 as the year of immigration. First, Hendrick Gulick sponsored the baptism of Cornelis, the son of Lucas Dirkszen, in New Amsterdam in May of that year (Baptisms from 1639 to 1730 in the Reformed Dutch Church of New Amsterdam and New York, Thomas Grier Evans,ed., p. 34). Second, Jochem Gulick, the son of Geertruyd Willekens and Hendrick Gulick, had been in the colony 34 years when he took the Oath of Allegiance in 1687 (Documentary History of the State of New York, b. E.B. O'Callaghan, vol. 1, p. 661). (Amicucci, 29)

  • Hendrick Gulick, Willem Beecker and Marritie Corne served as sponsors for the baptism of Cornelis, son of Lucas Dirckszen on 11 May 1653 (Theodore Brassard, Baptisms at the Reformed Dutch Church of New Amsterdam (1639-1730).

Hendrick Gulick died shortly after his arrival in New Amsterdam, when his widow married Claes Claeszen[5].

Geertruyd Willekens came from Hamburg in Germany. She appears in the New Amsterdam records only twice; the first with her marriage to Claes Claeszen in 1653 and the second as a passenger on the Faith (De Trouw)[6][7] which sailed to New Amsterdam from the Netherlands in Feb. 1659 (New World Immigrants by Michael Tepper, vol. I, p. 173). Here her name is given as Geertruyt Jochems. Jochems is probably her patronymic, therefore we may assume that she is the daughter of a Jochem Willekens. According to Tepper, Geertruyd travelled with two children, ages 4 1/2 and 7 years (Amicucci, 29). The children are felt to be Neeltje Claesz the daughter of Claes Claezen, b. 21 March 1655 and then age 4 1/2), and Jochem Gulick who would have been 7 years of age.

  • [Why was she sailing from the Netherlands to New Amsterdam in 1659, when she was already recorded as married to Claes, a New Amsterdam in 1653, this needs further investigation. However, the record of arrival Feb. 1659 clearly describes her.
  • Note: Neeltje Claes is the only known child of Claes Claeszen and Geertruyd Willekens. Neeltje was baptized on 21 March 1655[8], and therefore she must have been the 4 1/2 year old child who accompanied Geertruyd Willekens on the Faith. (Amicucci, 30)

Geertruyd was married second in 1653, per marriage intentions registered 11 September, 1653, to CLAES CLAESZEN, a blacksmith or "smit" from Amersfoort in the Netherlands; he died between 24 August 1684, when "Klaas Smit" witnessed the baptism of his grandson, Abraham Goulder, and September 1687, when he did not take the Oath of Allegiance (Amicucci, 31). Geertruyd was the daughter of Jochem A Willekens.

By 1655 Claes Claeszen and Geertruyd Willekens were living within the city of New Amsterdam, along the Waterside near the anchorage ground. Their house was located on modern day Pearl Street near Hanover Square, just below Wall Street. Claes Claeszen rented his house, garden, and orchard from Andries Jochemsen who owned three adjoining houses which were built by Claes Hendricksen, master carpenter (Amiccuci, 30).

Geertruyt probably died before 1678 since she did not appear as a sponsor for any of her grandchildren's baptisms; she may have died as early as 16 January 1665 when she was not identified in a deed executed by her second husband Claes (Amicucci, 31).

Gulick-73 and Van Gulick-1 appear to represent the same person because: they were in an unmerged match & the New Netherland Settlers Approval System (http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:New_Netherland_Settlers_-_Approval_System) now has them marked "Green" (NNS Category) and "Orange" (Merge Pending), indicating that the two are ready to be merged. Thanks! (P.S. New Netherland Settlers project includes van/Van in LNAB field when the person used van Gulick, for example, which differs from guidelines of the EuroAristo project.)
