Peter Alrichs was born in Nykerck, Groningen, in the Netherlands, about 1637. Alrichs was the son of a Peter Alrichs, and was the nephew of Jacob Alrichs, Director of the Dutch colony on the Delaware. Peter married Susanna Wessells in 1664; they had five children: Sigfridus, Hermanus, Jacobus, Wessell, and Peter. (Bendlar, "Colonial Delaware Assemblymen 1682-1776," 1989) Elsewhere, the wife of Peter Alrichs (Allricks) is listed as Marie. (Hutton, "Seventeenth Century Ancestors." 1987) My interests are in clarifying the name of the spouse of Peter Alrichs, knowing the parents of the Wessel wife of Peter Alrichs, as well as learning the names of descendants of Alrichs who lived on Delmarva Peninsula in the colonial period.
