"GERRIT HENDRICKSEN (BLAUVELT)
Early in November of 1637, two little ships sailed from Gottenburg in Sweden; the 'Fogel Grip' and the 'Kalmer Nyckel'. They were bound for the 'New World' where a Swedish colony was to be established under the direction of Pieter Minuet, former governor of the Dutch colony of New Amsterdam.
A terrific storm swept the North Atlantic that winter. It nearly wrecked the two small crafts, and they were forced to put in at the Texal, in the Netherlands, for refitting and repairs.
Kiliaen Van Rensselaer had aqcuired, by grant from the West India Company, a vast tract of land, approximately 1,400,000 acres, on the banks of the Hudson River, in the New Netherlands, in the vicinity of what is now the city of Albany. This he was endeavoring to colonize, and he now had six colonists, and some much needed stores which he wished to send over. He had long known Peter Minuet, and on the strength of this friendship he induced Peter to take these people and supplies on board to be delivered at New Amsterdam, and from there to be transported by such means as offered up the Hudson to Rensselaerwick.
The little ships were again ready to sail on December 20th, but the bad weather continued, and on the 29th Van Rensselaer wrote his cousin, Wouter Van Twiller, then the governor of the New Netherlands - "This uncertain weather and the tarrying of my people make me so stupid that I hardly know what I am doing."
Finally, on December 31st, the 'Kalmer Nyckel' set sail on her long and weary journey across the Atlantic, bearing Rensselaer's six passengers. One of these was a Dutch boy known only as Gerrit Hendricksen, (Gerrit, son of Hendrick). Van Rensselaer said this boy was a shoemaker by trade, and for various reasons we believe him to be the son of a Hendrick Gerryts and his wife Geertje, or Grietje, and to have been baptised in the old cathedral in Deventer, Province of Overyssel, on April 9th, 1620.
It apparently was late in march when Gerrt and his companions were finally put ashore in New Amsterdam, and started on the last lap of their journey up the Noirth River to Rensselaerwick, wher Gerrit was supposed to be employed in the cultivation of tobacco 'under Albert Andriessen, if it (the planting) has succeeded well, otherwise with the farmers.'
The records of Rensselaerwick show that Gerrit was employed there from April 2nd, 1638 until April 2nd, 1641, at wages ranging from the equivalent of $16.00 to $40.00 a year.
Of Gerrit's movements from the time when he faded from the records of Rensselaerwick to May 1646, we know not a thing, but it seems quite obvious that he retraced his steps back to New Amsterdam, and employed at least a part of his time in a successful courtship, for, under the date of May 7th, 1646, we find this entry in the records of the New York Dutch Church - 'Gerrit Hendricksen, j.m. van Deventer, en Marie Lambertse, j.d. uyt N. Nederld'. (Gerrit Hendricksen, young man from Deventer, and Marie Lambertse, young daughter out of New Netherlands.)
Marie, or Marretje, as she usually appears in the records, was the daughter of a hard-headed, hard-drinking, hard-fisted, but withal a hard-working and prosperous shipbuider on Manhattan Island, named Lambert Huybertsen Moll, who lived at what is now 253 Pearl Street, New York City, and who, in spite of his failings, seems to have been a public-spirited citizen and a man of considerable importance in the little community.
If we believe the church record statement that Marretje was 'out of,' (born in) the New Netherlands, she must have been one of the first white children born on Manhattan, for it is safe to assume that she was at least sixteen years of age at the time of her marriage in 1646. That would make her birth date not later than 1630. I rather question this, for I fail to find any mention of her father in the recors prior to 1641.
On December 6th, 1646, over the signature of William Kieft, Gerrit received a grant of 25 morgens of land (approximately 50 acres) on Manhattan Island. This farm, or bouwerie, was of irregular shape, but roughly it extended fromwhat is now the Bowery, east to Avenue B, and from a little below the present Houston Street, north to about the middle of Tompkins Square, although the frontage on the 'Bouwerie Lane' was only from First to Fourth Streets.
Gerrit had good neighbors, for later the land on either side of his farm was owned by no less a person than Director Pietrus Stuyvesant, the governor of the New Netherlands. It was Pietrus who built a small chapel on his farm where St. Mark's Church now stands, and we have reason to believe that some of Gerrit's children were baptised in this chapel.
On May 13th, 1654, Gerrit's grant was converted into a fee, and under date of May 3rd, 1664, he also received a grant for a stretch of meadow land extending to the East River.
Valentine's Manuel tells us that in 1663 Gerrit had a home site, or ton house, on Broadway six and four fifths rods south of the present Maiden Lane. I doubt if he owned this, for I have failed to find anything to indicate his possession of it.
During the next forty years we find little concerning Gerrit. There are a few references to him in the sale of land adjoining his, and he makes his quite regular appearance in the records of the New York Dutch Church at the baptism of his children, and occasionally as a sponsor at the christening of a child of someone else. Apparently, he was just a plain, unassuming citizen going quietly about his own business of making a modest living for himself and his increasing family.
After bearing thirteen children, Marretje passed to her reward sometime between September 8th, 1674, and October 22nd, 1679; for on the former date she and Gerrit were witnesses at the baptism of their first grandchild, and on the latter date, Gerrit took unto himself a second wife, in the person of Josyntje Janse, widow of Pieter Wesselzen. By her he had two more children.
On November 28th, 1683, Gerrit, 'lying sick in bed, but of perfect sound mind and memory', made his last will and testament. That he did not survive too long after that is shown by the fact that on March 4th, 1685, Josyntje took unto herself a third husband, in the person of one Anthony Sarley."
"HUYBERT GERRETSE BLAUVELT (son of Gerrit Hendrickszen Blauvelt & Marretje Lambertse Moll) was born in New York and baptised in the New York Dutch Church May 13, 1657. On April 15, 1679, while living at Stuyvesant's Bouwerie, he married Willemtje Ariaense Smith, daughter of Ariaen Lambertse Smith and Dirckje Cornelis, who we believe was born at Thuyl at Gelderlandt, Netherlands, about 1660. He was one of the Tappan patentees, and, since he was one of those who made the journey into the wilderness to negotiate with the Indians and also to Elizabeth for the interview with Governor Carterett, it would appear that he was one of the moving spirits in the project. He was one of the first to take up residence on the patent, and it would appear that he settled south of the present village of Tappan, and over the line in what is now New Jersey. He took the Oath of Allegiance in 1687. Just when he died, we do not know. His last child was born in 1690, and when the patent lands were divided in 1704 his portion was conveyed to his surviving children, thus signifying he had died prior to that time."
"GERRIT BLAUVELT (son of Huybert Gerretse Blauvelt & Willemtje Ariaense Smith) was baptised August 21, 1680 (New York Dutch Church, New York City, New York). He marriedJanuary 12, 1704, Tappan, New York, KATRINA MEYER (daughter of Johannes Meyer & Annetje Van Vorst) baptised February 4, 1680 (New York Dutch Church, New York City, New York)."
"HUYBERT BLAUVELT (son of Gerrit Blauvelt & Katrina Meyer) was born October 14, 1716, baptised October 29, 1716 (Tappan, New York). He married ALIDA VERVEELEN (daughter of Bernardus Verveelen & Evertie Delameter) baptised January 14, 1714 (Tappan, New York)."
"JANNETJE BLAUVELT (daughter of Huybert Blauvelt & Alida Verveelen) was born September 3, 1748, baptised October 2, 1748 (Tappan, New York), died April 29, 1826 (buried in Saddle River, New Jersey). Her Will was dated March March 12, 1825. She married DAVID ACKERMAN (son of David Ackerman & Jannetje Vanderbeek) born March 6, 1743, baptised March 27, 1743 (Hackensack, New Jersey), died January 29, 1825 (buried in Saddle River, New Jersey). His Will was dated May 25, 1824, and probated April 23, 1825."
