Descendants carry and records indicate these variant surnames: Enyart, Enyard, Enyeart, Inyart, Inyard, Enjart, Inniard , Inniart, and perhaps others.

YELLIS INYART was a son of Carel Enjart and his wife Antje, and is assumed to be one of the three children who accompanied Carel Enjart, from Flanders, who traveled to New Netherland on D'Eendracht (The Concord) on 17 April 1664 with his wife and three children, ages 12, 8, and 4. [1] If he was one of those children, he was born in Flanders between about 1652 and 1660.

He married (1) Elsje van Woggelum, daughter of Jan Pieterszen van Woggelum and Styntje Jans, in about 1686. Her name was sometimes anglicized as Alice. She was the mother of Yellis's first three children (born before 1692) and probably the next two children after those.[2]

Elsje appears to have died, and around Yellis married (2) Tryntje Thys Vlierboom, the widow of Gerrit Bastiaensen, as his second wife. The only known child of this marriage is Matthys, born about 1702 and named for Tryntje's father. [3]

Yellis died before 11 March 1708/9, when his will was proved.

Disputed Marriage Information

Several researchers have assumed that the wife Tryntje named in the will of Jellis Inyart was his only wife, and because of indications that John and Ary Woglum were his brothers in law, it was assumed that Tryntje was a member of the Van Woggelum family. Barbara Barth presented this information in the first installment of her multipart article "Those Easy-Going Van Woggelums Again," published in the The New York Genealogical and Biographical Record in January 1999, but revised her interpretation in the second installment, published in April 1999. Jellis Inyard his wife Alice executed a mortgage document in 1692, indicating that there was a marriage before his marriage to Tryntje. Naming patterns identify this first wife as a van Woggelum, named Elsje. Jellis's wife Tryntje (his second wife) is now identified as Tryntje Thys Vlierboom, and Barth suggests that Tryntie Van Woggelum did not exist. [4]

Enyeart-193 and Inyart-3 appear to represent the same person because: It appears that these two profiles represent the same person, Yellis, whose surname changes among descendants and records to be varied: Inyart, Inniard, Enyart, Enyeart, Enyard, Inyard, and others.
Inyart-3 and Enyard-15 appear to represent the same person because: Believe these two profiles are the same person. The profiles of the wives on their pages seems to be the only conflicting information.
