John Wanser1

b. circa 1832, d. before June 1870
  • John Wanser was born circa 1832 at Queens Co. (now Nassau Co.), New York, (son Theodore's death cert says, born in Port Washington).1,2
  • He married Sarah Ann Hults before 1854.1
  • John Wanser probably died before June 1870 as he is not found in the census records and his family is scattered.
  • He appeared on the census on 26 June 1860 at North Hempstead, (then Queens Co.), New York, (Roslyn Post Office). John Wanser, age 28, an Oysterman; wife Sally, age 26; children John Jr. (6), Theodore (5), Mary I. (2), Solomon J. (8 mos.) all members of the family were born in New York.3
  • John Wanser seems to have disappeared from the record during the decade of the 1860s. During the time when the nation was in the midst of the Civil War. As he would have been about 28 years of age at the onset of the Civil War, it is conceivable that John enlisted and perhaps lost his life during the conflict. Two records of a John Wanser have been found in the Annual Reports of the Adjutant General of the State of New York (for years 1893 and 1903). In the 1903 report on p. 985, regarding the 119th Infantry, is found John F. Wanser, his age is not known, who enlisted on 13 Aug. 1862 at Hempstead, New York to serve 3 years. He was mustered in as a private in Co. H on 5 Sep. 1862, and deserted on 29 Oct. 1864 from a hospital in Washington D.C. The second reference is to a John H. Wanser in the 1893 report on p.689, regarding the 2nd Cavalry. John H. Wanser is age 26, he enlisted on 27 Aug. 1862 at Oyster Bay, and was mustered in as a private, unassigned on 29 Aug. 1862 to serve 3 years, no further record. It is possible that either one of these records may pertain to this John Wanser.4,5

Abraham was a proprietor of the Queensbury Patent (which includes present day Glens Falls, New York), however, he seems to have sold his land shortly after receiving it and never settled there. His name appears in the records there as Wanzer. In 1744 he was appointed Lieutenant of the train band at New Fairfield.6
  • His will was dated on 27 April 1783 probated in 1784 in Danbury, Connecticut.5

Jan Jansen Wanshaer1

b. 1621, d. before 10 April 1674
  • Father*: Jan Wansaer1
  • Jan Jansen Wanshaer was born in 1621 at possibly Cadzand, Zealand, Netherlands, as he gave his age as 27 on 28 Sep 1648.2
  • He married Baertje Hendricks Kip, daughter of Hendrick Hendricksen Kip and Tyrntie Lubberts, at Reformed Dutch Church, New Amsterdam, on 17 January 1649; "Jan Janszen, j.m. Van Tubingen, en Baertje Hendricks Kip, j.d. Van Amsterd."3
  • Jan Jansen Wanshaer died before 10 April 1674 ; when his name no longer appears in the tax lists and he not named on a list of 16 sloop captains (certainly by Dec 1677 when his widow remarried).4
  • Also known as Jan Janszen Van St. Cubis (bapt. record of son Abraham).5
  • Also known as Jan Janszen Van St. Ubus (bapt. record of son Johannes, 1651).6
  • Also known as Jan Van Tubingen.7
  • Also known as Jan Van Sara.8
  • Also known as Jan Jansen Van St. Obyn (and by various other place and occupation names).9
  • Also known as Jan de Caper.10
  • Descendants are found with the name Wanzer; or Wanser.
  • Also known as Jan Kipshaven.11
  • Wanzer Family in America describes Jan Jansen Wanshaer as the first and only person of that name to come to America. He is first recorded in New Amsterdam (now New York City) on 11 Sep 1642 when Power of Attorney by Jan Jansen (Wanshaer) was given to Wintje Peters to receive money due from the East India Company at Amsterdam. He is also named on 10 Sep 1644 when he gave Power of Attorney to Peter Ria also for money due from the East India Co. (Calender of Dutch Manuscripts 1:20, 29). His place of birth, or at least origin before arriving in New Amsterdam, as Cadzand (Casant), Holland is taken from New York Colonial Mss. 2, p. 134, 17 Nov 1644 where is found, "Which pieces in silver in case Jan Jansen should happen to die on the voyage, the aforesaid Jacob Strofflelsz shall deliver to his father, called Jan Wansear, dwelling at Casant" (original in Dutch). In accordance with the Dutch patronymic naming system, Jan would have been known to those in the community of early New Amsterdam as Jan Jansen (i.e. Jan son of Jan) and indeed his name appears that way in the records of 1642 and 1644. His father, Jan Wansaer, could possibly have been the son of Wanse or Wanne (a Frisian name, the Frisians having settled along the Flemish coast near Artois, France). Another possibility is that Wansaer may be a place name, perhaps indicating origins in the Friesland town of Wanswerd, also known as Wansert. Efforts by William David Wanzer in the early part of the 20th century to trace the family in Holland were fruitless. In his marriage record he is called Jan Jansen j.m. (unmarried man) Van Tubingen (from Tubingen, a town in Suabia in the present day region of Württemberg, Germany). Perhaps his origins are there. In the baptismal records of his children he is variously called Jan Jansen Van St. Cubis; Van St. Ubis; Van St. Obyn (the location of St. Obyn or St. Obin has not been learned); Jan Van Sam; Jan Wanshaar; Van St. Berrers; Jan Wanshaer (sometimes Manshaer); and Jan de Caper (Jan "the sailor"). He was admitted to the rights of a burger in New Amsterdam on 18 Apr 1657. Both he and his wife are recorded as members of the Dutch church there in 1649 and 1660. Jan resided on Brouwer St., now that part of Stone St. (called such because it was the first street to be paved with stone in New Amsterdam) between Broad and Whitehall. He was apparently a ship merchantman. On 26 Nov 1644, Jan, along with Anthony Carol, Christopher Pieterson, and Abraham Philip, purchased the frigate La Grace which he sailed as a privateer under letters of the Dutch Government. His targets were primarily Spanish and Portugese ships, countries which the Netherlands was at war with during the time, although privateers were known to raid ships of other countries as well. Jan's exact role in privateering is not known, but the records of New Amsterdam do indicate that he was away for long periods of time and that during his absences he deposited considerable amounts of property with prominent citizens of New Amsterdam, taking receipts for it which are entered in the records of the Colony. Jan sold his interest in the ship in 1646. His sons Abraham and Anthony were probably named for his partners. Jan is also known to have been the pilot of the slave ship Gideon which arrived at New Amsterdam in August 1664 with a cargo of 290 African slaves, only weeks before the English wrested the Colony from the Dutch. He was in effect a sometimes pirate and transporter of slaves, possibly a slave trader, occupations that in today's times are regarded as quite reprehensible. In the context of the times when he lived however, his occupations were accepted and Jan was apparently recognized as a respected man in the New Amsterdam community. On 6 Jun 1662 Jan De Caper's (Wanshaer) sloop departed for the "south river," as the Delaware River was then known, with nine soldiers, making Jan Jansen Wanshaer the first (or one of the first) navel officers in America. Jan Jansen is recorded as one of 204 residents of New Amsterdam in 1657. He is found in the directory of New Amsterdam in 1665 as Jan Jansen Van St. Obin, residing on Brouwer St. A will has not been found in the records of New York City. His name appears frequently in the court records of New Amsterdam regarding various civil matters (usually the collection of monies due), and he was one of the first signers of the petition requesting Dir. Gov. Peter Stuyvesant to surrender New October 1664. He swore allegiance to the English as Jan Wanshaer Van St. Aubin on 21 Oct 1664. After the capture of New Amsterdam from the Dutch, the English impossed law requiring that all citizens take a surname. At this point in time Jan consistantly appears as Jan Wanshaer (or some variation thereof) in the records of (what is now) New York City.1,12
  • He witnessed the baptism of Hendrick Kermer , son of Abraham Kermer and Metje Davids, on 6 January 1658 at Reformed Dutch Church, New Amsterdam, (sponsors Jan Janszen Van St. Obyn, Maryken Kip).13
  • Jan Jansen Wanshaer witnessed the baptism of Marie Duycking , daughter of Evert Duycking and Hendrickje Simons, on 31 March 1659 at Reformed Dutch Church, New Amsterdam, (sponsors Corn. Theuniszen Ten Bos, Jan Janszen Wanshaer, Abraham Clock, Marritje Ten Eyck).14
  • Jan Jansen Wanshaer witnessed the baptism of Petronella Van der Heul , daughter of Abraham Janszen Van der Heul and Tryntjen Hendricks Kip, on 31 October 1668 at Reformed Dutch Church, New York City, New York, (sponsors Jan Nanshaer, Catalyntie Kips).15
  • Jan Jansen Wanshaer witnessed the baptism of Johannes Kip , son of Isaac Hendricksz Kip and Catalyntje Hendricks Snyder, on 20 January 1669 at Reformed Dutch Church, New York City, New York, (sponsors Jan Wanashaer, Susanna Willems).16
  • Descendants of Jan Wanshaer have variously spelled the surname as Wanzer, Wanser, Wonser, Wansor, and Wanzor.
