For those who descend from the marriage of Hendrick Martenzen Wiltsee/Hendrick Marten Van Coppenhagen and wife, Margaret Meyers/Margariet Meyrinck, from the book "New York Historical Manuscripts: Dutch, First Book of Records 1660-1752, Translated and Edited by A.P.G. Jos van der Linde, Published under the direction of the Holland Society of New York, reprinted by Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc. 1983. On page 75,77 and 79, is the probate record for Margaret,s mother Teuntie Straetsman. I would be interested in knowing if additional info is on pages 76 and 78? It lists orphans Laurens Haf and Anna Tieneman. Also mentioned is a Barentie Straetsman. Does anyone know who he is? There is a interesting letter to Tieleman Jacobsen about Teuntje Straetsman's several marriages on page 79 and 81. A letter from Hendrick Martenzen Van Coppenhagen is signed with a fancy mark for a signature is on page 186 and 187 where he acknowledged receit of goods from the late Teuntie Straetsman. There is more information on Hendrick Martenzen Van Coppenhagen and the Straetsman family on pages, 253,175,177,179 and 181. I would be interested in knowing what others have for family group records on Hendrick Martenzen Van Coppenhagen/Wiltsee and his wife's linage.
Marriage intention recorded in the Duth reformed Church on 10 January 1660.
His name given in the marriage register as Hendrick Martenszen, a previously unmarried man who was born in Copenhagen. When more information becomes available it will be placed here.
Notes for HENDRICK MARTENSEN WILTSIE:
Hendrick Martensen (Wiltsie) was probably born in Copenhagen and was in New Netherlands in the military service of the Dutch West India Company in or before 1658. The first known record concerning Hendrick was on 23 July 1658, when he was sued at Fort Orange (now Albany) by Pieter Bronck for beer and wine received. Hendrick denied the debt and said it was his partner who bought it. Bronck was ordered by the Court to prove the debt.
On 13 August 1658, at Fort Orange, 15 Mohawks requested that someone who spoke French well accompany them and their French captives to assist them at Trois Rivieres in New France (now Quebec) in their negotiations on exchange of prisoners as well as a general peace. In response to a public offer of "one hundred guilders for the trouble," Hendrick Martensen (called "a soldier named Henry Martin in a letter he carried") agreed to make the trip. The Indians agreed to return Hendrick to Fort Orange within 40 days after their departure from Fort Orange on 16 August.
By 10 June 1659 Hendrick was back at Fort Orange and was being sued for beer and brandy received. He admitted the debt, but claimed to have paid part of it. The Court ordered payment of the balance within one month.
The last known record of Hendrick in the Albany area was dated 20 August 1659.
On that date in Fort Orange for "goods to his content and satisfaction (portion missing)..., Hendrick Martense van Copenhagen transferred to Lucas Dirckse "the sum of fifty guilders to be received in fatherland for his monthly wages and subsistence due him...." The notarial document was signed "This is the mark of Hendrick Martensen with his own hand set." Hendrick moved from Fort Orange to New Amsterdam (now New York City) at this time or shortly thereafter. The first known record concerning him there is his marriage intention recorded in the Dutch Reformed Church on 10 January 1660. His name is given in the marriage register as Hendrick Martensen, a previously unmarried man who was born in Copenhagen.
Hendrick's first wife was Margrietje/Margaret Meijering/Meyers, widow of Herman Jansen van Lenneps, by whom she had a son, Jan Hermansen. Margrietje was the daughter of Jan Meyers and his wife Teuntje Straitsman. She was born in Brazil. Shortly after their marriage, Hendrick (on 16 March 1660) and Margrietje (on 13 April) were in the New Amsterdam Schepens Court obtaining redress from Herman van Borssum for damages to their canoe.
Hendrick soon joined the military garrison at Kingston in Ulster County, an area known to the Dutch at various times as Esopus, Wiltwyck, and Swanenburg. Here, Hendrick and Margrietje's first four children were baptized in the Dutch Reformed Church. In early March 1661 Hendrick was assigned No. 2 of the New Lots at Esopus (now Hurley). His name appears on a muster roll of 15 June 1661. On 18 April 1662 Hendrick was sued by Anthony Cruepel for wages due, and on 12 December 1662, by Jan Broersen for six month rent due.
On 7 June 1663, the Esopus Indians attacked Wiltwyck and killed, wounded or took captive many of the residents, burned some of the houses, and destroyed the "new Village." Among those taken captive was one child of Hendrick Martensen. His children at that time were his daughters Sophia, three and a half years old, and Jannetje, six months old, and probably Jan Hermansen, his step-son, five years old. Among those reported killed was "Hendrick Martensen, soldier, on the farm"; however he was captured - not killed. Hendrick and his child were probably among the captives taken from the Indians in September 1663.
On 29 December 1663, he was sued by Tjerck Claesen de Witt for "ten guilders, heavy money, balance of the minister's salary for the year 1662." Hendrick said he was not required to contribute to the minister's salary as "he is in the service of the Company..further..he has nothing to pay with, having been taken captive by the savages." The Court disagreed on both points and ordered him to pay "for though in the service of the Honorable Company he nevertheless has a house and lot here." Hendrick's service as a soldier was terminated when the English captured New Netherlands in 1664, however, he was a corporal of the burgher-guard in 1665. On 28 April 1668, he signed a deposition as one of the burghers at Wiltwyck. This is the last known record concerning him in the Ulster County area.
The four youngest Wiltsie children were baptized in the Dutch Reformed Church in New York City. About November 1669, Hendrick Martensen located in Newtown in the vicinity of the Hellgate soon after his departure from Wiltwyck. His name appears on the Newtown (Long Island) Rate Lists for 1675, 1678, and 1683.
The Town Records of Newtown show that, on 15 September 1681, he purchased a farm of 38 morgen (about 77 acres) near Hellgate, with "housis build orchards gardens medowes, pasturs & Cominage" on which he was then living. According to historian Riker, he sold the property to his son Theunis in 1706.
Hendrick Martensen was one of the patentees mentioned in Dongan's Patent to Newtown, dated 25 November 1686. In 1700 he and others were involved in an argument over the title to common lands at Hellgate Neck (now Steinway, L.I.).
It seems evident that Hendrick lived in Newtown from about 1669 until after 1700, and probably until his death.
On 31 May 1674 "Margriet Maijers, wife of Hendrick Martenszen" joined the New York Dutch Reformed Church. Hendrick was a Lutheran. The marriage intention of "Hendrick Martensen, widower, and Steentje, widow, were recorded on 10 June 1705, in the New York Lutheran Church. On 26 June 1705, "at the house of Mr. Pieter Woglum, Hendrick Martensen, widower, and an old widow, Steentje," were married.
We cannot be sure of the dates of death of Hendrick or either of his wives, or of his or their places of burial. Hendrick and Margaret witnessed a baptism in the New York Reformed Church on 6 July 1701. On 29 May 1707 "Hendrick Wiltzen and Stijntje Arianse" witnessed a baptism in New York.
Family tradition states that Hendrick died in 1712 and that may be correct.
