  • Name  Jacques Cortelyou 
    Gender  Male 
    Person ID  I39413  L C Earle's Family
    Last Modified  10 Sep 2000 

    Family  Neeltje Van Duyn,   d. Bef Dec 1695 
    Married  1655/56 
    • Just when, where and how Jaques Cortelyou became acquainted with
      Neeltje Van Duyn we do not know. Their marriage date can only be
      approximated, and few details concerning Neeltje's background are
      available.

      The circumstances connected with Neeltje's coming to New Netherlands were
      a little unusual, for she and her brother, Gerrit Cornelise Van Duyn,
      seem to have come to the Dutch Settlements as unmarried young people,
      unaccompanied by their parents, some three years before Jaques arrived.
      Bergen (ELKC, p. 331) sates the Gerrit Cornelise (Van Duyn), the common
      ancestor of the family, emigrated in 1649 from Nieuwkerk, in Zeeland.
      This date is no doubt correct, for Gerrit, when taking the oath of
      allegiance in 1687, declared that he had arrived thirty-eitght years
      earlier.

      Neeltje presumably crossed the Atlantic with her brother. Where she and
      her brother lived until her marriage to Jaques, around 1655-56, is not
      known. Gerrit did not marry until October, 1663."
