Do not confuse Lambert Huybertsen Moll documented in this profile, with the Lammert or Lambert Huybertsen van Wagening (called Brink) who immigrated aboard the 'de Trouw' on Dec 13, 1660. That person according to the Ships passenger list of ' de Trouw', sailed from Amsterdam on either 13 December 1660 [NWI], or 24 December 1660 [JJ], and arrived New Amsterdam before May 1661. Captain Jan Jans Bestevaer --- Lammert Huybertsen, from Wagening(en), and Wife and two children[1] Based on New Amsterdam and Kingston baptism and marriage records, the wife's name was Hendrickje Cornelis, and a child Cornelis (born at sea aboard De Trouw) and Huibert (van Wageningen). Of particular interest is the similarity of this Lammert|Lambert's origin (Wageningen) and family names to the Lambert Huybertszen (Clomp) who married Tryntje Pieters. Could they be somehow related but a generation apart? Lambert Brink's wife Hendrichje or Hendrickje Cornelis in many genealogies is mentioned as third wife for this Lambert Huybertszen (Clomp/Klomp) quite confusing and she should not be added back to or get re-attached to this profile (!)



Lambert Huybertsen Moll was born between 1595 and 1615 in the Netherlands. He was the son of Hubert Lambertsz Moll and Geertgen Cornelisdr. Lambert sometimes was named Clomp) he was a shipscarpenter. On 7 Sept. 1641 he received a Patent for a „plantation", 25 morgen large, in Brooklijn (thans Willemsburgh, district), he was a small burgher(citizen) of Nieuw-Amsterdam, on 13 April 1657
According to Dutch records Lambert Huybertsen Moll was married twice [2]:
  1. His first wife was Maria (Margaretha), unknown. Did Margaretha die in Nieuw Amsterdam after the birth of the first child in 1625[3] ?
  2. His second wife was Tryntje Pieters (van Couwenhoven), born after 1626-
    Tryntje died after 1688, and Lambert Huybertszen Moll died between 8-Sep-1674 and 22-Oct-1679.[4][5]
Very little can be found for both wives. The only documented evidence of his marriage to Tryntje Pieters is from the 1652-1659 membership records of the Reformed Dutch Church of New Amsterdam, where she was identified as his wife. A Problem is the determination of the spouses of Lambert Huybertsen Moll and thus : Who exactly is the biological mother of his children ?
Lambert Moll and probably his second wife) Trijntje Pieters in 1660 were members of the Dutch reformed Church ar Nieuw-Amsterdam. He took „the oath of allegiance to the English in 1664". Lambert's children were born both in the Netherlands and at New Netherland:
  1. Maria|Marie|Marritje Lamberts Moll, Uyt N. Nederlt [Possibly New Utrecht, LI, NN], was b. ca 1625-1635 [No NARDC baptism Record found]; m. Gerrit Hendrickszen, jm van Deventer on May 7, 1646. [6]. Marritje d. bef. Oct 22, 1679 [7]

    [A Hendrick Laambertsen took the oath of allegiance in Brn in 1687. He may be son of Lambert Huybertsen Moll.[10]] :Children of Hendrick and Catharine include: 1. 1666 June 21; Hendrick Klomp, Catharina Kuickhorst; Hendrick; Harmen Van Hoboken, Sibertie 2. 1686 Apr 28; Henderik Lambertsz; Catelyntje; Henderik Roosenboom, Willemje Schermerhoorn (Albany RDC)/ Hendrick Lambertse Moll, j.m. van Amsterdam, huwt 20 Nov. 1660 te New York Catharina Kingsfort, van Sandwich, Engeland.

  5. Abraham Lambertse Moll, bapt. 23 March, 1642 New York, married 16 Dec. 1662 New York Jacomijntje Jacobs Dartelbeeck, j.d. van Utrecht. They have following children:
    1.Susanna Moll, ged. New York 10 Februari 1664 (get. Lambert Huyberts, Geertje Lamberts) huwt 13 Dec. 1682 New York. Hieronymus hendrickse van Bommel, j.m. van New York en huwt 2e, 26 Juli 1699 Willem Willemse van New York;
    2.Sara Moll, ged. 15 Oct. 1666 New York;

  6. Geertje Lambertszen Moll, bp. Sept. 6, 1648. Baptism was recorded at the Reformed Dutch Church of New Amsterdam, NN.[13], m1. July 29, 1668, Hans Jacobse Harty[14]; m2. [15] [It is possible that Geertje had a twin, who died at birth and was not named at the baptism]
Some of his children according to their marriage records, were born at Arnhem, Gelderland, Netherlands, a city and municipality, situated in the eastern part of the Netherlands. It is the capital of the province of Gelderland and located on both banks of the river Nederrijn as well as on the Sint-Jansbeek, which was the source of the city's development, or at New Netherlands.
Lambert Huybertszen was known to have built a house, on the site of the Sampson Building, 63 Wall Street, NY, and had a shipyard in Smith's Valley on Manhattan. and resided at at Bushwick [now a district in Brooklyn, NY], Kings County, New York, circa 1668. Occupation: a ship builder on Manhattan Island. His sons Huybert Lambertszen and Abraham Lambertszen were also a ship builders, and according to Dutch Colonial records Huybert built a ferry boat...for which he was sued.
His name is sometimes written "Lambert Huybertsen Klomp". In 1674, he resided on Pearl Street, and was estimated to be worth $500.


Lambert /Hubertsen Mol or Moll/ He and his son Huybert were also styled Clomp, or Klomp.
Lambert Huybertsen /Moll/[4] [16]


Lambert Huybertsen was born ca. 1600 (between 1595 and 1610)
1595, Amsterdam, Amsterdam, Noord-Holland, Netherlands
1595, Ny Dutch, Nassau, New York, USA[4]
1600 New York[17]


Arrival Date: 1641 New York, New York[18]


Lambert Huybertsen Moll married:
  1. Maria (Margaretha), unknown. Did Margaretha die in Nieuw Amsterdam after the birth of the first child in 1625 (LINK: see Marretje Lambertse Blauvelt-Moll) ? Was she left behind in The Netherlands ? [No record of her found yet in NA records.
  2. Tryntje Pieters [Note that daughter Geertje, bp. Sept. 6, 1648, named her first child, b. 1670, Tryntje, this suggests that the child was named after Tryntje's mother. Note: Geertje's bp. record does not name her mother.] We do know that Tryntje was Lambert's wife in the mid 1650s.


This paragraph from the The Iconography of Manhattan Island mixes the two Lamberts: Lambert who wed Tryntje Pieters did not own land in Ulster County, the other Lambert removed to Ulster County before 1663, had children there, and continued to live there.
Property#8: Lambert Huybertsen Mol, a ship carpenter, built this house, on the site of the Sampson Building, 63 Wall Street. He was sometimes known as Lambert Huybertsen Klomp (Cal. Hist. MSS., Dutch, 47); he was in the colony as early as 1641 (Liber GG: 42, Albany) [not found online] and as late as 1674 (N. Y. Hist. Soc. Collections, 1841, pp. 387-8) [not found online]; and was apparently still living in 1696, when he is mentioned as owning land at Hurley.-Ibid., 1892, p. 464. Always a useful and respected citizen, Mol built gun-carriages for the Fort, and had a ship-yard in the Smith's Valley. He was, unfortunately, a heavy drinker, and this habit got him into many scrapes, which are quaintly set forth in the Records of New Amsterdam (III: 209, 212; IV: 137, 205, 208). [19]
63 Wall Street is located on Wall Street, in the block bounded by Pearl Street, Beaver Street, Hanover Street and Wall Street.

Hi Cynthia,

Do you mean we now have it wrong and they are in fact one and the same ?

We had them as one and the same at first, but see also the profile for Lambert Huybertsen van Wageningen (Brink) ...

I agree they look similar of course, but It's extra difficult /confusing because of all the repeated names and patronymics, there were quite a few Lambert Huybertses (Clomp, Brink, Bont) during the same time in the Netherlands and New Netherland it's hard to make sure, prove if and why these were perhaps the same or if they were all different people..

So if you have some convincing evidence (records / links to sources) perhaps you could share and add or post it here ? We are all working on our worldwide tree and want it to be as accurate as possible, so if you have some prove that would be great and if we all agree we will of course correct everything that needs to be corrected.

Thanks for your help, it's of course appreciated ! Bea

It's very easy to make this mistake since new York says he was born there and netherland souces say he was born there I have researched him for years, he is my 9th great grandfather, it's one man that records mistakenly list twice, two wives listed twice also. I had him listed as two different men forever. Hope this helps you figure out the truth instead of the "myth", I think this happens when immigrants made it to new York, have seen it a few times.
