Pieter Pieterzen m. Tryntje VAN DE LANDE
Pieter Pietersen b. Vytrecht, Holland, Netherlands, christened at Amsterdam Lutheran Church on 7 March 1657.On April 15, 1660, the Dutch ship De Bonte Koe (The Spotted Cow) set sail from Amsterdam with soldiers and supplies for the Dutch colonies along the Hudson River in North America.Of the 18 soldiers on board, only Pieter Pieterzen, progenitor of the Ostrander family in America and a cadet in the army of the Dutch republic, was accompanied by his wife, Tryntje, and three children: Pieter, Tryntje and Geestje.Two months later, the ship arrived off New Amsterdam, Dutch colonial capital at the tip of Manhattan Island.Shortly afterward, the Pieter Pieterzen family was among the 70 or so settlers at the farming community called Esopus, about 90 miles upriver on the Hudson.
After England took over the Dutch colonies on the Hudson River in 1664, Nieuw Amsterdam was renamed New York, Esopus became Kingston and Nieuw Dorp became Hurley. The family gave up the Dutch patronmic naming system about 1700 and adopted the surname Oostrander or Van Oostrander and other variations, meaning 'from the east bank', resumably referring to a locale in Holland.
Surname spelling variations: Ostrander, Ostranda, Ostrande, Van Noortstrande, Van Noorstrant, Van Nostrandt, Van Nostrant, Va Noortstrand, etc.
He married Rebecca Traphagen 19 Jan. 1679 in Kingston, Ulster Co., NY.
He died in 1739 or 1740 in New York.
