Generation 5 - Maggie’s great grandfather Simon Van Arsdalen. (1732)

Maggie’s Great grandfather

Simon Van Arsdale was born about 1732. He was the son of Symon Van Arsdale and Antje Dorland. i

Simon Van Arsdalen was a Captain in the New York Militia

Again, From The Star and Sentinel, Gettysburg, PA., January 8, 1884" - 30 page manuscript in the Ponna Archives:
I must speak of their patriotism. The Dutch were staunch friends of liberty. The struggles of their forefathers had been signal. The glorious cause owes large debts to Holland. It was impossible that sons of the Dutch and the Hugenots should not walk in the steps of their fathers. Accordingly we find that in the Army of the American Revolution the Dutch soldier had no inconsiderable place. I have not been able to ascertain just how many of the Conowago colonists were in those ranks. The names of by far the most of men who achieved our independence have passed, I suppose irrcoverably (sic) into oblivion. But on page 121 Vol. XI of the Colonial Records of Pennsylvania, the following entry is to be found in the proceedings of the Council of Safety, Philadelphia, Feb. 4, 1777.
"Capt. Bickham was directed to pay Capt. Simon Van Arsdalen, $2140 for subsistence of his Company of Col. MacPhersons Battalion of York County Militia, to be charged to Congress."
Captain Van Arsdalen’s Company was in all probability largely made up of his own people, but in addition to these, there are traditions of a Captain William Houghtalin, under whom his brother Abraham served as a private and of a Captain Brinkerhoff."

Simon married Catherine Voorhees in Flatbush in 1753

Simon married Maggie’s greatgrandmother Catherine Voorhees, on 17. Nov. 1753 at Dutch Reformed Church, Flatbush, Kings County, New York.ii

He was a baker and then later a bleacher (bleaching laundry on a grassfield in the sun).

Marriage of Wolphert Gerretse Van Kouwenhoven and Aeltje Jansdochter

Wolphert married Aeltje Jansdochter on 17 January 1604/5 at Dutch Reformed Church, Amersfoort, Utrecht, Netherlands.. Marriage banns for Wolphert Gerretse Van Kouwenhoven and Neeltgen Jacobsdochter were published on 9. Jan. 1605 at Amersfoort, Utrecht, Netherlands.

Neeltgen’s parents estate settled in 1611

The first reference to Wolfer Gerritse is recorded on 15 December 1611 when Wulphert Gerrits signed an agreement with his stylized A. According to the terms of that document, he agreed to assume the property and debts of the deceased parents of his wive Neeltgen Jacobsdr from the other heirs for 100 guilders. Her brother Herman Jacobsz also signed this document as well as her brother-in-law Willem Dircx who was married to Aeltgen Jacobs Petergen Petersdr, the underage daughter of her brother Peter Jacobsz, who had already received 50 guilders.

Wulphert and Neeltgen sold a “bleach camp” in 1612 and the last payment was 4 ½ years later

On 22 March 1612 Wulphert Gerritsz and his wife Neeltgen Jacosdr sold a bleach camp outside the Coppelpoort of Amersfoort to Hendrick Janss and his wife Hasgenb Thonis for 1,200 Carolus guilders, the occupation of Wolfert is not disclosed in this document. On 28. Oct. 1616 Hendrick Janss and Haesgen Thonis made the last payment on the bleach camp which they had purchased from Wolfert Gerretse and Neeltge Jacbsdr, and the property was made over to them.

Wolphert’s occupation was declared as a Baker in 1612

In the settlement of the estate of Wolfert's wife in Amersfoort, it was declared before the court that his profession at the time was baker on 8 August 1612 at Amersfoort, Utrecht, Netherlands.

Wolphert’s business dealings trying to recover a bad debt or other obligation from a German named Herman Zeibloltz is recorded in 1615

On 14 April 1615 Wolphert took part in a curious agreement with Herman Zieboltz of Amsterdam, before Johan van Ingen an officer of the court of Utrechet. The name of the Amsterdammer suggests that he was a German or that he was of German descent. His name is also spelled Syboelt and Zyeboltz in those documents.
According to a "donatiaq iner vivos" (gift to a living person) Ziebolz gave Wolphert two morgans of turf ground near Cologne in recognition of services rendered (but not payment for them). No monetary amount is mentioned for the services or the turf ground.
In a second document of the same date issued by the same officer of the court of Utrecht, Ayeboliz made a debt owed by him by Henrick Adrianesz and Adriaen Adriansz over to Wulpher Gerrits baker and Cornelis Wynantsz inkeeper. This second document authorized Wulpher Gerritss and Cornelis Wynantsz to assume ownership of the two morgens of turfground mentioned in the first document.
These documents create the impression that Zieboltz was unable to pay Wolfert money that he owed him, that the Amsterdammer made over a debt on which he had not been able to collect, and that Wolfert may have agreed to these vague terms because he would otherwise not be able to retrieve anything from his business dealings with the Zieboltz.

Wulpher Gerritss, baker, testified in a tax evasion case in 1616

On 16 May 1616 Wulpher Gerritss baker appeared as a witness before Johan van Ingen officer of the court of Utrecht, in a case in which Willem Gerritz miller testified that Griet Maes was evading the city grain tax. The document does not specify that Wulpher and Willem were brothers, and if such were the case, it is likely that this would have been discussed in the document.

Wolphert Gerretse Van Kouwenhoven purchased a house in Amersfoort and mortgaged the property 3 times

On 30 January 1617 at Langegraft, Amersfoort, Utrecht, Netherlands Wolphert Gerretse Van Kouwenhoven purchased from Aert van Schayck and his wife Anna Barents a house on the Langegraft in Amersfoort which lay between the hosue of the aforesaid Aert on the one side and that of Henrickgen Barents widow of Aelbert Conrneiss on the other side, while the breadt of the house lay on the Lieverrouwestraet (Dear Lady Street). Wolphert was listed as a baker.

NOTE: The Barents name also appears in our family history in New Netehrland
  • On 30 May 1658, Hendrick Kip bought plots from Christian Barents in New Amsterdam
  • Barent Gerritse Flaesbeeck’s daughter are referred to by the surname Barents and marry in the DeForest line of “Forest Hills” New York
Within a short time, between about February and July 1617, Wolphert placed three mortgages on this house. Perhaps the transactions with Zieboltz were unprofiatble, and this was one of the causes for his need for money.
  • On Feb 15, 1617, Wulpher Gerritss baker and his wife Neeltgen Jacobsdr borrowed 100 guidlers from the Armen of Amersfoort on which he agreed to pay 6 guilders per year.
  • On May 16, 1617, Wulpher Gerritss baker and his wife Neeltgen borrowed 200 guilders from Cornelis Baecx van der Tommen at a yearly interest of 12 guilders.
  • On Jul 25, 1617, Wulphur Gerritss baker and his wife Neelttgen Jacobsdr borrowed 250 guilders from Anna Goerts widow of Franck Frandkss at 15 guilders interest per year.

With 2 partners, Wulphert Gerritsz and his wife Neeltgen Jacobs purchased a bleach camp outside the Coppelpoort of Amersfoort in 1618 with the terms of the mortgage financing clearly recorded

On 3 January 1618 Wulphert Gerritsz and his wife Neeltgen Jacobs purchased a bleach camp outside the Coppelpoort of Amersfoort with Hubert Lambertsz Moll and his wife Geertgen Cornisdochter as thier partners. They borrowed 500 Carolus Guilders from Ghijsbert Cornelisz van Cuijlenburch, a citizen of the city of Utrecht, at an annual interest of 25 guilders and 20 stivers. In addition, Hubert Lamberts and his wife Geertje Cornelisdochter contracted a special mortgage of 400 Carolus guilders with the consent of Wulffert Gerritsz and his wife.
On the north side of the property lay the River Eem, on the east the city moat and on the south and west the heirs of Gerrit van Speulde. This propety came with two other mortgages: 200 guilders to the Poth and 600 guilders to Jo. Catharina van Morendael not yet conveyed to her. In a codicil, Wulpher Gerritsz, baker, and his wife Neeltgen Jacobs become party to the mortgage of Hubert Lambertsz Moll and his wife Geertge Cornelis for 400 guilders with interest on Ghijsbert Cornelisz van Culenborch with restriction that Wulpher would pay 150 guilders in the year 1618 and thereafter be free of oblicgation.
In the margin is a notation that Dirck van Cullenburch as heir of his father Gysbert van Culenburch acknowledged that the obligation on the mortgage was fully paid on Mar 5, 1628.

The bleach camp business in the 1600s was specialized, seasonal, labor intensive and operated on low margins

In the seventeenth century, a bleach camp was a capital intensive, seasonal business which required the labor of relatively many workers. Profits were meager because the buyers of the finished product and the suppliers of raw matierials such as lye were generally the same persons, and they acted to keep their costs and thus the profits of the bleachers low.

Wolphert’s family may have specialized in whole cloth bleaching, as opposed to yarn or clothing

There were three types of bleaching activities, and the skills and experience reqiuired of workers was generally so high that each bleachery specialized in but one sort of material: Yarn (garenblekerij), woven cloth (lijnwaadblekerij), or clothing (klerenblekerij). In all three cases, the material was first generally cooked in a lye solution and later spread out on green grass for many weeks in small fields surrounding the bleach house where it was kept damp. Later, it was cookled in a solution of wheat meal before being again spread on the field for a lenghtly period, the entire process requiring about three months. The consequences of this long procedure was that only wealthy people were the customers of clothing bleachers because only they could afford to part with many items of clothing for so long a time.
No equipment of the bleach camp listed in the purcahse document for Wolphert are given. So no indication of what type of bleachery Wolphert purchased. The bleach camp he sold in 1612 included a bleach table meaning it may have been a cloth bleach camp.
Wulphert Gerritss baker and his wife Neeltge Jacobs again mortgage the home in 1618, perhaps due to market forces causing a recession in the weaving trade that passed through to impact bleachers
On 17. Sep. 1618 Wulphert Gerritss baker and his wife Neeltge Jacobs contracted a mortgage with Coenraet Fransz, former mayor of the city of Amersfoort, for 100 guilders at an annual interest of 6 guilders, with the house of Wulphert on the Langegracht as security, which house lay between the house of Aert van Schayck and that of Hednrickgen Speldemaeckster.
It does not appear that Wolferts endeavor as bleacher met with great success, and this may have been caused by a general malaise in the weavers trade in Amersfoort in this period, which in turn lay on a lack of capital. Because Wolfert's work was dependent on this industry, he was limited as a businessman by the lack of sucess of the parent industry.

In 1622 Wolphert became guardian of his brother Willem’s children in a document that establishes his Couwenhoven identity

On 5. Nov. 1622 Wolphert was appointed guardian over the five under aged children of Willem Gerritsz Couwenhoven (From NYGBR).
Wulffer Geridtz, bleacher residing by the Coppelpoort and Harman Willemsz citizen of Amersfoort as "bloetvoochden" (blood guardians) of the five sons of Willem Gerridsz Couwenhoven, namely Gerridt, Willem, Jan, Harmen, and Willem the Younger, none of whom had yet reached the age of majority, made an agreement with the mother of the children Neeltgen Willemsdr the widow of Willem Gerridtsz assisted by the owner of Cowenhoven the honorable Johan de Wijs.
This document indicates that Wolfert Gerritse had a brother Willem and that he was the tenant of the farm that was owned by Johan de Wijs. This document indicates that Wolfert is connected to the Couwenhoven by Hoogland. It is at the same time possible that he was also linked to the Couwenhoven near Woudenberg because he was a son of Gerrit Willemsz van Couwenhoven, but documentation for this has not been discovered.

In 1623 Wulphert the bleacher gets into a scuffle at the Coppelpoort bridge over possession of some fish caught by Beermt van Munster

On 24 March 1623 Beermt van Munster made a deposition under oath before the lieutenant, the schout, and the schepenen Dam and Bronchorst at the request of the (police) officer. He stated that the previous Saturday afternoon he had caught a bucket of fish by the Coppelpoort bridge and had given half of it to Wulphert the bleacher according to an agreement which they had made, and that Beernt had caught a small number of fish threafter. Wulpher and Harmen Teut then took these fish from Beernt, and they would not divide them with him. Wulpher took the net and tried to give it to his wife. Harman hit Beernt in the eye with a weight in the net, but by then, it was ripped. Beernt then went to the defense of his wife, and Wulpher drew his knife and threatened him without harming him. Dirck Gerritsz, stevedore, using well-chosen words, separated the people from each other. On April 1 1623, Dirch Gerrisz was heard at the request of the officer and made a similar deposition under oath.

In 1623 exits the bleach camp business, setting the stage for the family to emigrate to New Netherland

On 11 June 1623 Hubert Moll and his wife Geertgen Cornelis sold a bleach camp to Wulpher Gerritsz bleacher and his wife in which they had been residing. This was situated in Amersfoort outside the Coppelpoort. The property description differs slightly from that given for the land transaction of 1618, but the mortgages are the same. It is likely that this is the same ground that Wulpher Gerritsz and Hubert Moll purchased then. On the date of purchase in 1623, Wulpher Gerritss sold this property to Monsieur Jacques Chiese Cuirass(ier) of the company of his Princely Excellency (Maurits) and the purchser assumed the mortgages.
This is the last document pertaining to Wolfert Gerritse that has been discovered in the archives of Amersfoort.

Wolfert and Neeltgen emmigrated in 1625 as part of a Dutch West India Company expedition to New Netherlands

Wolfert immigrated between June - July 1625 to New Amsterdam, New York County, New York. He and Neeltgen Jacobsdochter immigrated in Jun. 1625 to New Netherlands; or July 1625, with his wife and family on a ship of the Dutch West India Company that sailed in the expedidition that was comprised of the ships Mackerel, Horse, Cow and Sheep. On 1629 Wolfert returned to the Netherlands.

Wolfert was under contract to Killaen van Rensselaer and correspondence with the Patroon indicates that Neeltgen was unhappy in New Amsterdam

On 24. May. 1630 He returned from the Netherlands on board "De Endracht" (the Unity).
There is reported to exist a letter from Killaen van Rensselaer to Wolfert which I have to get from sources. At this time Wolfert was in the Netherlands and the letter had to do with terminating Wolfert's contract with van Rensselaer and mentions that Wolferts wife was unhappy living in New Netherlands. In the letter van Rensselaer states he would not want someone who was not happy working for him to remain in his employ under the circumstances. It was a friendly letter. According to the source there are several letters to Wolfert from Van Rensselaer.

In 1636 Wolphert Gerretse Van Kouwenhoven established the "plantation" Achterveldt, the first kown white settlement on Long Island, on property acquired from the the Kestachau tribe; this became thefocal point for New Amersfoort (Flatlands)

On 30 June1636 Wolphert Gerretse Van Kouwenhoven purchased "Keskateuw" located on Long Island from the Indians. Here was established the first kown white settlement on Long Island. Wolphert called his "plantation" Achterveldt, shown on the Manatu Map of New Netherlands as farm No. 36 near the Indian long house to the Kestachau tribe. Wolphert's house surrounded by palisades, was the focal pont of the village of New Amersfoort, later called Flatlands.

On 18. Apr. 1657 Wolphert got "Small Civil Rights"

The rights referred to are most likely the “small burgher rights”. The great burgher right and the small burgher right were established chiefly with a view to protection from itinerant traders who would come in on a seasonal basis to sell the furs and thus had lower overhead than the year-round residents. To block these outside traders a residency qualification was established. The small burgher right was conferred on all native born citizens on the husbands of native born women and on all who had been residents of the city for a year and six weeks.

In 1661 Wolfert Gerritsen Van Couwenhoven is named in a property dispute

On 20 October 1661 Wolfert Gerritsen Van Couwenhoven was named in a suit filed by Frans Jansen regarding a dispute over a contract in which Jansen was to buy land from Wofert. This was the first time the name Van Couwenhoven was mentioned in reference to Wolfert.

Death of Wolfert Gerritsen Van Couwenhoven

Wolfert Gerritsen Van Couwenhoven died between 2 March 1662 and 24 June 1662 at New Amersfoort, Kings County, New York.

In the October, 2004 the New York Genealogical & Biographical Society Review, published an article titled “Wolfert Gerritse in the Netherlands: Further Thoughts About the Van Couwenhoven Family
This article follows:

WOLFERT GERRITSE IN THE NETHERLANDS: Further Thoughts About the Van Couwenhoven Family
BY WILLEM VAN KOUWENHOVEN
The purpose of this article. Several years ago, I made a study using documents about Wolfert Gerritse van Couwenhoven which Marcel Kemp had sought out at my request in the archives of the district Amersfoort in the Netherlands.[1] The New York Genealogical and Biographical Society was kind enough to publish this in THE RECORD as "Wolfert Gerritse in the Netherlands." (2] During the intervening time, I have developed several points of criticism about the article which pertain to the views which were expressed there about Wolfert's first wife Aeltge Jansdochter, the birth order of Wolfert and his brother Willem, the date on which the tenancy of Willem's son Jan on the farm Kouwenhoven was terminated, and the projected picture of Wolfert's childhood.
Wolfert Gerritse in recent literature. Additional information has been published in the meantime by Marcel Kemp and Gerard Raven as "Boerderij Kouwenhoven en de familie Van Kouwenhoven 1400-1650" in De Bewaarsman,[3] the publication of the Historische kring Hoogland, the Historical Society' of Hoogland. (The farm Kouwenhoven is located in the neighborhood Coelhorst within the former district Hoogland, which is now a part of the district Amersfoort.) Gerard Raven was co-editor of De Bewaarsman when the article was published. In addition to information about the early history of the farm that appeared in Kemp's article "De herkomst van Wolfert Gerritsz, stamvader van de Amerikaanse familie Van Kouwenhoven" in the 1996 Jaarboek van bet Centraal Bureau voor Genealogie[4] and in the above-mentioned article in THE RECORD, the article in De Bewaarsman contains information about a tenant on the farm in 1536, insights into the lives of the tenants in the period 1620-1650, and a report of the construction of a brick manor house on the farm during the eighteenth century by a new land owner, as well as the history of the farm to the present day. Only the material that pertains to the critique of the article in THE RECORD will be dealt with in this discussion.

Information about Kouwenhoven, its neighborhood Coelhorst, and the local Chapel Coelhorst were included in the booklet "Hoogland-West," the issue of De Bewaarsman for April 2001.

Wolphert’s 1st wife died without any surviving children

Aeltge Jansdochter was Wolfert's first wife, that she died shortly after their marriage without bearing any children who survived, and that Neeltje Jacobsdochter, who is shown as his wife in the documents from the Amersfoort archives, was his second wife and the mother of his known children.

Implications of the “Guardianship” terms

If one of Willem's five sons was but a few months removed from attaining his majority, it would seem that it could have been arranged in one way or another that he become the tenant of the farm, if he was in other respects a suitable candidate for this work. That this did not occur suggests that the oldest son was several years removed from his majority, and this is the tenor of the agreement which the "blood guardians" Wolfert Gerritse and Harmen Willemsz. of Amersfoort (respectively the brother of Willem and the brother of Willem's widow) made with the mother of Willem's children on 5 November 1622. She was to care for the children and let them attend school and learn to read and write. Such stipulations suggest that some of the children were too young to have learned basic literacy skills at the time of their father's death.

Wolphert left the Homestead early

Wolfert is thought to have left the homestead early in his life, even though it was customary in Hoogland that the oldest son succeed his father as tenant. Wolfert sought to survive in the business world of Amersfoort, where he already resided as a married man when he was twenty-one years old according to the entry in the marriage register of the Reformed Church of Amersfoort, which was located in the St. Joriskerk (St. George's Church).

As a third point then, there is no need to change the view which was expressed in THE RECORD article of 1998 regarding Jan's death date, but it would appear that the family's tenancy on Kouwenhoven likely had already ended by 1646, ten years earlier than was presented in that article.

There is no document in which Wolfert is listed as a resident of Kouwenhoven or as its tenant farmer. Yet, he used the name Van Couwenhoven, and he worked as a farmer and as a farm supervisor. It is reasonable to assume that this farm was his home and work place for a time during his early years.

It is best to be cautious about drawing an easy conclusion that Gerrit, the father of Wolfert and Willem, succeeded his father on Kouwenhoven and that the family can be found on this farm much further back into the past.

Religious life in Wolfert's childhood, the neglect of the Coelhorst Chapel, and it’s impact on the Kouwenhoven family

A discussion of religion and worship can be added to the treatment of Wolfert's childhood. The Coelhorst Chapel, which was built about 1350, stands just around the corner from the farm Kouwenhoven. This proximity evokes a picture of Wolfert trudging on Sunday mornings with other family members and residents of the neighborhood Coelhorst through the snow to worship services in this building. Yet, the historical story differs greatly from this.
About 1350, the residents of Hoogland no longer had to attend mass in Oud-Leusden, which was several miles south of Amersfoort while their hamlet then stood several miles northwest of the more northerly city. They received their own chapel, which was dedicated to St. Nicholas, who was not only the patron saint of farmers in areas that had just been placed under cultivation, but also the protector from floods. During the following two centuries the chapel became endowed as the result of the income from several farms.
The Reformation brought a step backward to this little settlement. In 1580, Catholic services were forbidden by the provincial parliament of Utrecht, and the church was closed. It seems to have been the intention of the Protestants to hold their own services in this building, but a pastor could not be found. It was not until 1655 that it could be arranged that Reformed pastors from the region would hold services in turn in the chapel. In the meantime, itinerant priests had offered the mass for the faithful without interruption at other places in the neighborhood such as the manor house Hoogerhorst, until Hoogland was again assigned its own priest in 1640.
Ill feeling was likely generated when the chapel was closed and its income was not used for many decades for services in that building or for pastoral care for the local residents. Perhaps as a result, the Protestant families gradually departed from Coelhorst in the seventeenth century so that the hamlet was almost exclusively Catholic in the eighteenth century as is noted in another source. This remained unchanged in subsequent years.
As for the impact of these dynamics on our own family, none of Wolphert Gerretse Van Kouwenhoven children are to be found in the baptismal registers of Amersfoort or Leusden. We do not have an account of the reason why. It may have been a lack of outreach by the church. It may have involved a lack of interest on Wolphert’s part.
In a later period when Wolphert cultivated contacts with Reformed businessmen such as Killiaen van Rensselaer. He may have found it expedient to affiliate with their church. Perhaps it is for this reason that he is listed on 13 August 1651 as a witness of the baptism of Albert, son of Albert Albertszen, at the Reformed church in New Amsterdam. Additionally, the function of the church in the extended family may have been more pronounced at this time.
