|v.||PEITER RINGO, b. 1689; d. 1730, Hunterdon Co., NJ.|
Notes for PEITER RINGO:|
Never married. 11 v. Pieter Ringo(41) was born in New York, New York County, New York before 15 SEP 1689.(42) Pieter died 1730 in Hunterdon County, New Jersey, at age 40.(43) He was baptized 15 SEP 1689 in New York, New York County, New York.(44) PIETER (Peter) RINGO, son of Albertus Ringo and Jannetje Stoutenburg, was baptized at the Dutch Reformed Church in New York City on September 15, 1689. Godparents present were Lucas Stoutenburg and Adriaentie Cornelis. The latter was probably a relative of Geertje Cornelis and it has been suggested that their family name, if they had one, might be Trommels, but this has never been proven out by the records.
Peter moved with his parents in 1706 at the age of seventeen from New York City to the Falls of the Delaware (later to become Trenton) in West Jersey. His father apparently taught him the trade of shoemaker and he must have helped out in the shop there until his brother, Philip, opened his mill on Stony Brook in Hopewell Township in 1718.
In Hopewell he probably made his home with his brother, plying his trade as both a shoemaker and gunsmith with those who brought grain to the mill. Since no record has ever been found of his ownership of land, it is also possible that he occasionally "whipped the cat" by riding horseback with tools in his saddlebags and attending to the needs of the settlers in the back country.
He was a popular figure throughout the township as attested to by his being elected to the office of Assessor in 1723 and Collector in 1724. He earlier had been commissioned as Lieutenant in the Hopewell Militia.
He died intestate in the summer of 1730 in Hunterdon County, New Jersey, where the records call him "Cordwainer and Gentlemen," before reaching his forty-first birthday. He never married.
On August 30, 1730 his brother, Philip, was appointed by the court to be the
administrator of his estate. His inventory made September 30, 1730 by Alexander Lockart and Philip Ringo, was witnessed by the mark of John Hunt and the signature of his brother Cornelius Ringo. It showed a value of 18 pounds, 7 shillings, and 6 pence, and included as follows:
"Apparel, a Chist, an old Sadel and bridles, a parcel of gone smiths toolls, a set
shoemakers tooels, a chaff bed and 2 blankets, a brown horse and old area horse, a small mare and A Cowe."

Notes for JANETJE RINGO:|
13 vii. Jannetje Ringo(46) was born in prob New York City before 21 MAR 1694.(47) She was baptized 21 MAR 1694 in New York, New York County, New York.(48) She became Albartus Van De Water's godparent at his baptism 8 FEB 1708 in Kings, Saratoga County, New York.(49) JANNETJE RINGO, the daughter of Albertus Ringo and Jannetje Stoutenburg, was baptized in the Dutch Reformed Church in New York City on March 21, 1694. Her Godparents were Isaac and Neelje Stoutenburg. She was still in New York on February 8, 1708 when she served as Godmother of Albartus Van de Water, her nephew. No further information has been found on her.
|vii.||CORNELIUS (JUDGE) RINGO, b. Bef. May 02, 1695, New York City, NY, USA; d. 1768, Maidenhead Twp, NJ; m. FRANCES.|
Notes for CORNELIUS (JUDGE) RINGO:|
He apparently received a good education along with his brothers at the Collegiate
School there of which his father was a deacon. He was approximately eleven years old when he moved with his family to West Jersey. It is thought that he also learned his father's trade as a shoemaker.
Cornelius stayed behind in Maidenhead Township, when his brother, Philip moved to Hopewell in 1718. In the little village, later to be called Trenton, he worked at his trade and early on began to take an active part in the activities there. He was commissioned August 25, 1725 at the age of twenty to be an Ensign in the Hunterdon County Militia.
In 1730 he witnessed the inventory of his deceased brother, Peter, and in the same year is mentioned as being owed an account from the estate of Maurice Trent. In 1733 he bought a half acre of land in Trenton (probably before the death of his father, Albertus) from James Trent. In that year he is also mentioned as a creditor of the estate of John Severns of Trenton.
After their father's death the two Ringo brothers advertised his property for sale on March 28, 1734 and again on May 13, 1736, and on both occasions prospective buyers were advised to contact Cornelius Ringo in "Trentown." He was certainly there in 1734 and apparently attending there in 1736; but on January 6th of the latter year he sold his half acre lot to William Atlee of that town. Cornelius in that deed is shown as a Cordwainer living in Amwell.
Apparently Cornelius Ringo had decided to try the country life and become a
Gentleman farmer, while still pursuing his trade in the less competitive atmosphere near his brother, Philip. On April 28, 1737 he gave a mortgage to the County Land Office on a 100 acre "plantation" adjoin" William Lummix in Amwell, and just a short distance southeast of the crossroads, where Philip Ringo kept Tavern.
He was in Amwell though at least to 1744 for he is mentioned in the estate records of Lummix and of William Dawles, who kept a mill about a mile south of Ringo's Tavern. It was during this period that he was made a Justice of the Peace of Hunterdon County.
By 1746 when he was reappointed to this position Cornelius had sold his farm to Johan deel Bergh and moved back to Maidenhead Township. When the King that year granted Trenton a charter covering parts of two townships there, Cornelius Ringo was made a Member of the Burgess (Councilman) of the new Borough of Trenton.
Cornelius continued to hold his position as Justice and took an active role in the
affairs of the court of Hunterdon County. On May 28, 1751 he, along with his brother, Philip, and other Justices signed a protest to the King against the treatment of William Morris.
Two years later Cornelius Ringo shows up as owning a farm in the Tax List of Hopewell Township, where he was apparently living. In 1754 he was, as had been his brother, Philip, made a Judge of the Court of Common Pleas of the County of Hunterdon.
It was also during his stay in Hopewell that he joined with John Hart (later to become a Signer of the Declaration of Independence) in filing a complaint with the Overseers of the Poor of the township.
The date he sold his place in Hopewell is not known but by 1767 he was back in
Maidenhead witnessing the will of Abigail Hunt and the farm was in possession of Joseph Moore, son of Nathaniel of that township.
At some time in his life he had married, for when he died early in 1768 his wife,
Frances, was his executrix and heir. Cornelius Ringo, throughout his life, had been an active member of the Presbyterian churches at Trenton, Maidenhead (Lawrenceville) and Hop swell (Pennington) and it is thought that he would be buried at one of the first two, but those records available do not confirm this.
A minor notation of a contribution by a "Miss Ringoe" to the minister's fund in
Hopewell about the time of their residence there might give credence to the possibility that Cornelius Ringo and his wife, Frances, may have had a daughter, but it is doubtful as she is not mentioned in his will proved February 13, 1768 in Hunterdon County, New Jersey. (Certainly she was not the Deborah Ringo mentioned in the Introduction to the "Letters of Moore Furman" (Frederick H. Hitchcock, New York, 1912), whose name was Ring or Rings.

|viii.||CATHRINA RINGO, b. 1691, New York City, NY, USA; d. 1750.|
Notes for CATHRINA RINGO:|
She married Elyse Bird before 1717.(100) (Additional notes for Elyse Bird(101)) CATHRINA RINGO, the daughter of Albertus Ringo and Jannetje Stoutenburg does not show up in the Dutch Reformed Church baptismal records for reason suggested earlier. It is estimated that she was born between May 16, 1691 and September 1, 1692. She apparently married Elyse Bird before 1717 but no record of the marriage is found in the church records; however, a son of theirs was
baptized in that year for whom Willem Van de Water and his wife, Aefje Ringo, were sponsors. No information has been found of additional children or of the date of their deaths in the New York City Dutch Church records.
Cathrina Ringo and Elyse Bird had the following child:
32 i. Jacobus4 Bird(102) was born before 30 OCT 1717.(103) He was baptized 30 OCT 1717.(104)
Child of CATHRINA RINGO and ELYSE BIRD is:
i. JACOBUS11 BIRD, b. October 30, 1717.
