Geertje, wife of Albert Albertsze Terheunen, was NOT a Denyse!
First, the *only* documentation found to date providing a name for the wife of Albert Albertse, the immigrant is as follows:
"Tuesday, 16th October 1663, Court Minutes of New Amsterdam
Abraham Pietersen Corbyn, arrestant and plaintiff, v/s GEERTJE DIRCKS TERHUNEN, the ribbon weavers wife, defendant and arrested. Plaintiff's wife appearing demands from defendant thirty-three guilders ten stivers balance according to a/c saying she still has an old a/c, which her husband has with him, whereby something else is also coming to her...."
The above identifies her as daughter of OR widow of Dirck 'somebody'...
Those who claim Geertje to be a DeNyce identify her as the d/o Teunis Nyssen DeNyce and Femetie Jans Seals. But there is no record of a daughter, Geertje.
Furthermore, the dates simply don't compute.Geertje was having children in the 1650s... Teunis N. DeNyce & Femmetje were ALSO having children in the 1650s!!! It just does NOT compute.
