I am researching the decendants of Antony Janse VanWESTBROOK, s. of Jan THEUNISZOON & Eychgan BOSCH of Westbroek, Holland. Antoni contracted with Kiliean VanRensselaer for employment in the colony of Rensselaerwijck, now Albany, N.Y. Antoni adopted the name "WESTBROOK,WESTBROOKE,WESTBROECK,WESTBROEK" when required to distinguish himself from at least two other contemporary Antony Jansen's, when the British took control of the colony. Antony came to this country at the restoration and accession of Charles II to the throne of England in 1660. He married ORRSELTIEe DIRCKS abt. 1658-9 and they had three children; Dirck, Johannes & Anna. I have a lot of Antony's decendants already included in my family tree and am directly descended through Antony's son Johannes Westbrook, who married MAGDALENA JANSE DEKKER, May 12,1687.
Any information that you wish to share would be greatly appreciated and, of course, I am willing to share any of my information.
