Jochem Gulick

JOCHEM GULICK (Hendrick), son of Hendrick Gulick and Geertruyt Willekens, was born circa 1652; he died in Gravesend, Kings County, New York, probably shortly after 20 December 1711 when he made his will "very sick" but certainly and before 26 August 1723 when it was proved; he was married circa 1676 or earlier to JACOMYNTJE TEUNISSE "JAQUIMYNTIE" VAN PELT (Teunis Jansen, Jan, Barthomeus, Jan), daughter of Anthonius "Teunis" Jansen Lanen van Pelt and Grietje Jans. Jacomyntje probably died before 19 December 1719 when a granddaughter, Jacomyntie/Jemima Gulick (Pieter, Jochem, Hendrick), was born and named in her honor before the girl's maternal grandmother had been honored. For more information on the Lanen Van Pelt family, see New Netherland Connections 4:1 and 5:1.

Jacomyntje was sometimes identified as Magdalena: She [Jacomyntje] appears as Magdalena Teunis (403), as Jacamijntie theunesse (441); and record on p. 437 has Jacomina van Pelt with Jacomina crossed out and Magdalena written above. She was called Jacomyntie in the 1700 deed and in the will of her husband. (Parsons, footnote on p. 16, citing Voorhees) One wonders if the clergyman originally recording these events confused Jacomyntje with Magdalena Joosten, the wife of her brother, Anthony Teunissen [Lanen Van Pelt]; they were married before 1679 and resided in New Utrecht (Parsons, 15).

As shown above, Jochem's half-sister, and perhaps his step-father, were already residing in Gravesend in 1676 when Jochem settled there:

In 1687, Jochem Gulick stated that he had been in the New Netherland colony 34 years when he took the Oath of Allegiance (E.B. O'Callaghan, Documentary History of the State of New York, vol. 1, p. 661). This would put his arrival at 1653, which is consistent with his fathers arrival.

In 1689, "Joghem Gulick" was the "Ensign of foot Niclaes Stilwells Company" in Gravesend ("Second Annual Report of the State Historian of the State of New York," New York Colonial Muster Rolls, Vol. I [1897], 408). On 25 June 1705, "Jochem Gulick" was comissioned as Capt. in the Gravesend militia of Kings County ("Second Annual Report of the State Historian of the State of New York," New York Colonial Muster Rolls, Vol. I [1897], 430).


Joachim Gulik married Jacomyntie (Magdalena)Tunissen van Pelt, daughter of Tunis van Pelt, circa 1676 or earlier.


Joachim Gulik and Jacomyntie (Magdalena)Tunissen van Pelt had the following known children:
  • Hendrick GULICK, b: ABT 1677 in Gravesend, Long Island; d. after 1 Oct 1747 when he made his will and before 6 Jan 1758 when his will was proved; received birthright in father's will as the eldest son; m. CATHERINE DERICK AMERMAN, bapt. 2 April 1677, dau. of Derick Janse Amerman; resided in Monmouth and Somerset Counties, NJ.
  • Catalyntie GULICK (Eldest daughter) b. ca. 1677 or earlier; m. ca. 1697-98 WILLEM WILLEMSEN, b. ca. 1676 or earlier, eldest son of Willem Willemsen and Mayken Pieters Wyckoff (Pieter Claesen) of Gravesend.
  • Geertuyd GULICK, no further records found.
  • Grietje GULICK, m. CORNELIS WILLEMSEN, b. ca. 1687, third son of Willem Willemsen and Mayken Pieters Wyckoff of Gravesend.
  • Teunis or Tennis GULICK, no further records found.
  • (Blank) Gulick, b. Jan 1, 1681[1]
  • Samuel GULICK, b: 1685 in Gravesend, Long Island[2] He was bap. Amersfoort on 5 April 1685 as the son of Jochem Gulick and "Jacomina Magdalene van Pelt," witnesses "Aard Teunisz van Pelt" and "Jannetje Van Borkelo" (Voorhees, 437); died, probably before 23 Feb 1705 when a son of his brother Henrick, Samuel, was baptized and presumably named in his honor; he was not named in his father's will.
  • Jochem GULICK, b: Feb 06, 1687 in Gravesend, Long Island, NY[3]; d. probably after 1756; m. by 1709 GEERTJE JANSE.
  • Peter GULICK, b: SEP 04, 1689 in Gravesend, Long Island, NY[4]; d. Somerset Co., NJ 4 Dec 1774 "age 85; m. 25 Oct 1718 EVA VAN SICKLEN.
  • Jacomyntje GULICK, b: 1693 in Gravesend, Long Island; m. DANIEL GRIGGS (John 3-2-1 ), son of John and Martha ( ) (Wilkins) Griggs of Gravesend.
  • Johannes GULICK, b: ABT 1695 in Gravesend, Long Island; d. Rocky Hill, Somerset Co., NJ between 24 March 1731 when he made his will and April 1732 when an inventory of his estate was taken; m. RENSJE "REMGE" "RENIGE" "RANTSHA" VAN SICKLEN (Ferdinandus 2-1 ), Rensje being a diminutive of Laurensia.
Note: Johannes, Hendrick, Jochem, Peter, Teunis, Catalyntie, Grietie, Gertruyd, and Jaquamintie were named in their father Jochem's will of Dec 20, 1711. Samuel was not, and is presumed to have died before Dec 20, 1711.

Will of Jochem Gulick

In the name of God, Amen. December 20, 1711. I, Jochem Guylick [sic], of Gravesend, in Kings County, being very sick and weak. I leave to my loving wife Jaquimyntie, all my estate of houses, lands, and meadows within the town of Gravesend, with all liberties and privileges, during her natural life, without any interruption or molestation of any person. After her death, my son Johanes shall have all my estate, to him and his heirs and assigns forever. And in consideration thereof he shall well and truly pay to my 8 children, Hendrick, Jochem, Peter, Teunis, Catalyntie, Grietie, Gertruyd, and Jaquamintie, £655, in 5 years after he comes of age. And he shall further pay to my son Hendrick, £7, which is a gift from me for his birthright. And as he hath already received £50 of his portion, my son Johanes shall pay him only £40. And as my son Jochem hath received his full portion, he hath no more to demand. And my son Johanes shall pay to my 4 daughters, each £90. And my son Johanes shall pay to my sons, Peter and Teunis, each £124. If my son Johanes dies without issue, then all of my estate I leave to my son Peter, houses, lands, and meadows, upon the same conditions. If any of my unmarried children shall marry, each is to have a decent setting out, from my estate. I make my wife executor. And I appoint my brother, and my friends, Aert Van Pelt, William Willemsen, and Samuel Gerritsen, guardians and overseers of my wife and children. (Abstracts of Unrecorded Wills, Vol XI, pages 93-4; Surrogates Office, City of New York)

Jochem's will was witnessed by Samuel Hubbard, John Lake, and Nicholas Willemsen; it was proved before Governor William Burnet in New York until 26 August 1723.

Aert Van Pelt and John Lake were Jochem's brothers-in-law. William Willemsen and Samuel Gerritsen were half-brothers to each other; their mother, Mary, was the wife of Willem Gerritsen and Gerrit Remmersen; two of William Willemsens's sons married two of Jochem's daughters. Nicholas Willemsen was another son of Willem Willemsen and Mayke Pieters Wyckoff.

Given the fact that Jochem's unrecorded will was proved on 26 August 1723, the following record is most curious: Whereas Jochem Guzlick [sic], of Gravesend, died intestate, Letters of Administration are granted to his son, Johannes. [Dated] 4 Sep 1723. (Abstracts of Wills...1708-1723; Collections of the New York Historical Society [1893], Vol. 2, p. 272)


Jochem Gulick died Dec 20, 1711, at Six Mile Run, Middlesex, New Jersey, United States. [5]

DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Jochem by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA. However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line. It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Jochem:

Hi Michael, Gulick-286 is the son of Gulick-29. I think the merge that needs to be done is between Gulick-287 and Gulick-29..

Gulick-74 and Gulick-29 appear to represent the same person because: This is the oldest paternal ancestor in this chain in need of a merge. No tree conflicts. These matches have been reviewed by the New Netherland Settlers Merge Approval System, and the "Green" destination NNS profile is protected as PPP, and the "Merge Pending" profile is now ready and able to be merged into it. I saved the data to the bios. Thanks!

Gulick-29 and Gulick-74 are a match so why isn't it being merged? Some things on WikiTree I have yet to understand. I was glad to see that Steve Mix saw this same problem and had suggested a merge.

The birthplace for Joachim Gulick is another one of those flukes in the OLD Family Tree Maker ie when another county had a city with the same name it would be automatically added. It needs to be corrected from Gravesend, Livingston County, New York to Gravesend, Kings County, New York. Thanks Bill
