Barent Egbert Family

I. Barent Egbert, (aka Egbert Teunise Egbert, or Sanderson, Metselaer, Egbertsen) son of Paumelus & Lemniken (Gerrits) Egbert, will 6/7/1684, d. ca. 1687 at Albany, NY, m. 11/1657, Aechji Albert (in Genealogies of 1st Settlers of Albany the last name is Egbertse) came to New Amsterdam, 4/16/1663, from Schutterop, Germany with wife and 2 ch., ages 1 & 3yrs., on the ship ‘Spotted Cow.’  Granted "Burgher right" & living in New Amsterdam 1657. Settled in Beverwyck, (Albany) NY in 1641. On 4/1/1655 Solomon LaChair’s wife hired him, in Netherlands, to work for her husband as tailor in New Amsterdam. He is recorded as alderman in New Amsterdam, 4/13/1657. (possibly the trip on the Spotted Cow with his family was his second voyage to New Amsterdam) on assignment roll of British 1675, on 8/1/1678 he bought woodland called ‘Kruypel Bosch’ from Garret Stoothoff for 6000 gl. 25 morgens.  Signed his name to documents as Barent Egberssen. On assignment rolls of Breuklen, 9/1676 with 1 poll, 1 cow, & 3 morgans of land totaling 68£. Barent also said to be a mason brought over by Killian Van Rensselaer. His name appears in “Settlers in Rensselaerwick.” also in “Books of Monthly Wages and Other M.S.S., 1641) He is recorded as Councilman for North Ward beyond the bridge.  By 1674 Barent & his friend, Dr. Thomas Spry, had moved to New Castle Co., DE, surveys being made for them 5/28/1675 and patents issued to them 11/5/1675. The survey made for Barent, called "BlackSmith's Hall," suggests he may have changed his occ. when he moved. Barent made a will 10/20/1674, shortly after arriving in DE, proved 6/6/1677 by Dr. Spry, and letters of admin. were granted to the widow, Rebecca. This suggests Barent married a 2nd time to Rebecca --- ca. 1663 since they have 3 ch. listed after that date.  Rebecca remarried Dr. Thomas Spry after Barent's death (after 1677) and d. pre 4/6/1685, the date of Dr. Spry's will. Rebecca & Dr. Spry had no ch. In 1688 records show Ann Egbert Green & Abiah Egbert Garretson were mentioned as co-heirs of the estate of Barent Egbert.   (See Jelte Egbert Family Outline)
