"Cornelis Hendricksz van Nes (van Es); was in the colony [Rensselaerswyck] in 1641, and probably came with Andries de Vos, on den Eyckenboom. From 1642, he is charged with tithes of a farm at Bethlehem, which he seems to have occupied till the fall of 1648, when van Slichtenhorst brough actions against him for calling him a liar and a cheat and for throwing oat straw on the dump heap out of spite against the director and to the detriment of the next lessee. In April 1649, he made preparations to leave the colony, but for some reason stayed and Aug. 25, 1650, he leased, for eight years at f225 a year, a farm in Greenbush, formerly occupied by Teunis Cornelisz van Vechten, together with six morgens of land belonging to the adjoining farm of Teunis Dircksz van Vechten. Van Nes served as raets persoon (councilor) of Rensselaerswyck, at an annual salary of f50, from 1652 to 1658, and again in 1660, 1661 and 1663. He lived with his wife Maijgen Hendricksen, at Vianen, province of South Holland, in 1625, and owned land at Scherperswyck, near Leksmond, in the neighborhood of Vianen, as late as 1661."
Cornelis Van Ness was born 1599/1600. Was of Vianen Holland. He emigrated to Rensselaerswyck, New Netherland, in 1641. He was alive in 12 Nov. 1684. In 1664 he married as a second wife Marritje Damen widow of Dirk VanEpps and widow of Hendrick Andriessen VanDoesburg.
In March of 1663, Cornelis van Es paid for the use of a large pall,  and that's likely when his first wife, Maijgen, died.

Cornelis Van Ness was born in Holland about 1630. He emigrated to New Netherland about 1641.
He appears to have married twice. In April 1654, he wed Anneke Wessels in New Amsterdam. In 1664, he married a widow born Marite Damens. That marriage produced seven children. An affidavit dated November 1665 identified him as her husband and guardian. In 1670, Maritie was able to take possession of her land at Canestagione.
Traditional sources tell us he was a brewer who had a house in Beverwyck and a house, lot, and brewery in Greenbush and that he died in New Jersey in 1679 or about 1682.
However, in 1697, the home of a Cornelis Van Ness in the Manor housed two men.
In any event, the name of this Cornelis Van Ness dropped from Albany area rolls by the end of the century.
notes Sources: The life of Cornelis Van Ness is CAP biography number 887. This sketch is derived chiefly from family and community-based resources. We seek more definitive information on his origins and passing.
