Subject: Re: [D-Col] Arendt Van Corlaer and his "wives"...some confusion
The two children were:
1. "Tall Eagle Correlar's Daughter"
The NYG&BR had an article called "Arendt Van Corlaer Children" +which stated: "...we know from Albany court record, that he had a half-Indian daughter. At court held in Albany on 4 April 1676, the sherriff, as plaintiff, accused the defendant, Gerrit Teunisse (Van Vechten) of having "taken away three guns from the Indians", upon which the defendant denied this and requested "that a squaw, Correlaer's Daughter, may appear personally to be heard".
(Van Laer, A.J.F. "Court Minutes of Albany, Rensselaerswyck and Schenectady" vol.II, page 86)
This the court ordered, but there is nothing further in the
record concerning this case. The use of the word 'squaw' suggests that the daughter was at this time a grown woman, and, since Van Corlaer did not arrive in America until 1638, she was probably between the ages of 30 and 40 at the time of the trial."
2. Benoni Van Corlaer, born about 1662, who married Alida Elizabeth Vander Poel, widow of Sybrant Goosen Van Schaick.

Arendt Van Corlaer had no legitimate children by either of his marriages.
I am descended from his son Benoni by his liason with Anneke Schaets, daughter of Domine Gideon Schaets.
The problem arises with which of the actual wives of Arendt Van Corlaer was the widow of Jonas Bronck.
Antonia Slaghboom was the widow of record when Arendt Van Corlaer died.
Believe that to be Jacob van Corlear, frequently recorded in and around the Islands in the mid 1600s. Arent van Corlear(aka van Curler), from the story you mentioned, was an official at Rennsalaerwyck, a cousin of Killaen van Rennsalaer, and spent most of his time around the Albany area. He was reported to have spent as much time with the Indians as he did with the settlers. Although Arent married a Dutch girl, his only son, Benoni, was
noted to be half Indian in a court case not long after his father's death.
From email dated 11 Dec 2001 from Van
on the D-Col List
"1Antonia Slaghboom was the widow of Jonas Bronck in 1643, when
she was betrothed to Arent Van Curler. She resided in Schenectady from the first settlement of that place in 1662 till her death in 1681. In 1672 she was licensed to trade at Schenectady in consideration of the loss of her husband in 1667 in public service, and of her house, barns, and corn by fire. It was thought also that her license would stop the quarrels of the other two tapsters, Cornelis Corn. Viele and Akes Corn. Guatsh [Van Slyck] the Indian--Order in Council, p. 127."
Collections on History of Albany, page 444
The wife of Arendt Van Corlaer also appears as "Teuntje Jurians", who is, unfortunately also given as the widow of Jonas Bronck.
Scandinavian Immigrants in New York 1630-1674 (excerpts)
Teunte Jeurians married Van Curler, probably in 1643 (1646 according to Appleton's Cyclopaedia of American Biography). He was a gifted person, and only eighteen years old when he sailed from Holland to New Netherland, at the end of December 1637. He was a cousin of Kiliaen Van Rensselaer, became secretary and bookkeeper of the Colony of Rensselaerswyck. In 1644 he sailed for Holland, but returned to New Netherland, probably in 1647. He was now appointed Gecommitteerde. For a while he was trustee of voluntary contributions for the erection of a school. He learned to speak early (p. 227) the tongue of the Iroquois Indians. In 1650 he was chosen to go on an embassy to the Maquas.
Van Curler and his wife, after returning from the Netherlands, lived on their farm near West Troy, NY. Here he worked for peace with the Indians and for checking the sale of "fire water". He may be considered the "real founder of that Dutch policy of peace with the Indians that was afterward followed by the English..."
His uncle, Kiliaen Van Rensselaer, sent him many a word of admonition and censure, and asked him to follow the advice of older people. In 1643 he wanted to know to what extent Van Curler was intemperate, as he had heard rumors about his drinking, and participating in attendant evils. In the same year he was displeased at his having contributed to the erection of a church.
After the death of (her first husband Jonas) Bronck, his widow married Arent Van Curler who sold the Bronck property to Jacob Jans Stoll...the Bronx thus remained for some time in the hnds of a person of Danish blood."
"[p.171] Returning to the subject of our article, the wife of Jonas Bronck, Teuntje Jeurians, seems to have been a relative of Marritje Pieters of Copenhagen, who appointed, on August 15, 1639, "Teuntje Jeurians of [New] Amsterdam or Jacob Bronck, her present husband, as heirs" (See article "Marritje Pieters." Part II.)
Teuntje Jeurians page 226
Teuntje Jeurians (Sofia, Antonia), who came to New Netherland in 1639 or before, was the wife of the Dane, Jonas Bronck, [p.226] who died in 1643. Bronck married her in Europe, perhaps in Denmark. She was probably Danish, as Marritje Pieters of Copenhagen mentions Teuntje in her marriage contract, as an heir. The fact that she mentions Teuntje first and Bronck second, would indicate that the relationship existed between the women."
I have never been able to interpret why the (Sofia, Antonia) is given after the name Teuntje Jeurians. Could these two rather dissimilar names refer to the same woman?
The "Corlaer" after whom the fort was to be named was Arendt Van Corlaer, First Superintendent of the Colony at New Netherland. His title is given in several versions, but essentially, that is what he was.
There were several Van Corlaers/Van Curlers in the area, but he was by far the most influential and highly esteemed, and, as your material states, was drowned on Lake Champlain about 1667.
He was born about 1612 to Henrich/Hendrick Van Corlaer and Nellie Willemsz in Nijkerk, the Province of Gelderland, the Netherlands, and was from a wealthy and very influential family.
His mother Nellie Willemsz was the daughter of Engeltie Van Rensselaer, and Engeltie the daughter of "The Patroon" Kiliaen Van Rensselaer, who chose Arendt, who was only eighteen at the time, to come here and supervise the colony.
His mother was Nelle Willemsz, daughter of Engeltie Van Rensselaer, who WAS the daughter of Kiliaen Van Rensselaer, but this was not "The Patroon".
That was Kilian Van Rensselaer the son of Engeltie Van Rensselaer's brother Hendrick and Maria Pafraet.

Note: She was banished from her father's church after this incident, but her father sued members of the
congregation for slander and won the suit, but the magistrates banned her from Albany. In 1670, her father sent her to NYC, with her son, to start a new life. There she met and married David Kikebell.

As Goosen arrrived in March 1637, and was employed in Rensselaerwyck on 8 April 1637, I would guess his birthdate to be around 1612-1617, possibly earlier. Did Gerrit Goosense die in 1630 as I have seen mentioned? When did Marritje marry her second husband, Ryer Elbertse?
