Pieter Quackenbosch, Born: 1614, Holland, was the founder of the Quackenbush family in America, was a brick maker in Albany, New York. Although early records of Albany contain several references to him as Pieter Quackenbosch, he is also frquently found undr the name of Pieter Bont, and and sonetimes as Pieter (or Piet) Bout. The use of a second suname, or alias, was commonly found among the early Dutch settlers of New Netherland, as well as the frequent use of the Patronymic.

Pieter Quackenbosch probably left Holland for New Netherland in May of 1653 aboard the ship GRAFT. The following letter from Edward Man and A. Pater, Directors of the West Indies Company, to Pieter Stuyvesant tell of the passengers on this ship:

"A" 1653, the 7th of May.
Honorable, Vigorous, Pious,
Dear and Faithful.

In the ship 'Graft' goes over Mr. Johan De Hulter, partner in the Colony of Renselaerswyck, and his family who takes with hime a goodly number of free people, among them soe artisans, especially a bery good brickmaker, and many other mentioned in detail in the list, to settle either in said Colony, or elsewhere and assist in the cultibation of the soil there. As it is not yet quite decidedm where he may begin and as he may settle on Manhattans Island, where we believe it would be best, we have deemed it proper and just upon his request for a recommendation, because not known there, to direst you to favor him as far as possible without prejudice to the Company's interests and kindly assist him in everything; and if he should conclude to remain upon Manhattans or Long Island to allot for him so suitable a place, as his circumstances and the fitness of it for a brickyard require. Hereupon relying etc. etc.

Amsterdam

the 7th of May 1653 To Directeur Stuyvesant in New Netherland.

THE DIRECTORS OF THE W.I. COMPANYEDWARD MAN. A. PATER.


Assumming this brick maker was Pieter Quackenbosch, he most likely did not settle in New York City but instead accompanied Johan de Hulter to Albany, then known as Beverwyck. The first mention of Pieter Quackenbosch in the Albany records occurs the following year, 1 December 1654, in the court minutes of Fort Orange and Beverwyck, where it stated that "Jan Gouw cut Piet Bout across the hand," evidently in the course of a fight.

Johan de Hulter established various businesses in Albany, including a brick kiln and a tile kiln, but died just several uears after his arrival. De Hulter probably put Pieter Quackenbosch in charge of the operation of the brick kiln, as evidenced by the following excerpt from the Fort Orange and Beverwyck court records of 29 May 1657:

"Pieter Bont, Plaintiff, against Pieter Boxboom, defendant.

The plaintiff says that the defendant is bound to burn brick for him for the period of ten months, exhibiting a contract made between Mr t'Hulter, deceased, and the defend.

The defendant on the other hand produces an absolute release from Madam Johanna, Widow of the said Mr De Hulter, deceased.

The court, having examined the contract and the release, adjudge that the defendant is released from his contract by virtue of the release."

Pieter is first mentioned as "Pieter Quackenbosch" in the court minutes of Fort Orange and Beverwyck on 20 August 1657, again as a plaintiff agains Pieter Bosboom. Still another complaint was filed against Bosboom on 8 Febuary 1658, this time by "Pieter Bout's wife."

n 7 November 1657, Johanna de Hulter announced her intention to sell at public auction her brick kiln, tile kiln, house, barn, pasture and other pieces of property apparently left to her by ber husband. The brick kiln was sold to the highest bidder, Adrian Jansen Van Ilpendam, for the sum of 1,100 guilders. At the same time, At the same time, Madame de Hulter also sold "at public sale, the house where Piet Bout dwills" to Aernoldus Van Curler for the sum of 740 guilders.

Pieter Quackenbosch probably continued to operate the brickyard for a number of years, despite its sale to Adriaen Ban Ilpendam. In 1668, Pieter purchased the brickyard from Van Ilpendam, as shown by the following deed:

"Appeared before us, undersigned, commissaried of Albany, etc., Adriaen Van Ilpendam, who declares that in true rights, free ownership, he grants, conveys and makes over to Pieter Quackenbos in the brickyard according to the fence thereabout set, lying here in the colony and by said Pieter Quackenbos occupied according to the right and ownership of the ground which he bought and paid for, of madame, the widow of the late Johan de Hulter, now wife of Jeronimus Ebbinck, according to release, of date the 20th of August 1664, on condition that said Quackenbos pay yearly a rent of two Carolus guilders to the Heer director of the colony according to the tenor of the contract therefor, of date the 11th of November 1657, to which reference is herein made; and therefore giving said Quackenbos, his heirs and successors or assigns, full power to dispose thereof as he might do with his patrimonial effects; also acknowledging that he is fully paid and satisfied therefor and therefore promising to protect and free the same from all trouble and claims as is right, and never more to do now suffer anything to be done against the same, in any manner, on pledge of this person and estate, nothing excepted, subject to all laws and judges.
Done in Albany the 21st July 1668. ADRIAEN VAN ILPENDAM"

Pieter Quackenbosch's wife, Maritje Ariens (Dochter), was also closely involved in the operation of the brickyard, as shown by her frequent appearance in the Albany court records in matters dealing wth its operation. The following Albany court record from the year 1684 illustrates her heavy involvement in the brick business:

The plaintiff's wife on behalf of her husband demands according to settlement of accounts 7 1/2 beavers for bfick delivered.

The defendant claims that she did not deliver the brick according to the agreement, having delivered soft brick among the gable brick. Also that he had to wait for brick, to his great loss, for which he demands damages.

The oath being deferred to the plaintiff;'s wife, she swears that according to the last settlement of accounts there was due to her 7 1/2 beavers.

The honorable court condemn the defendant to pay the plaintiff the sum of 7 1/2 beavers demanded, cum expensis." [This court record contradicts the assumption in the 1909 genealogy of the family that it was Maritje who died in 1682 when Pieter paid for the use of the large funeral pall.]

In 1683, "pr Quackebos" pledged two "pieces of 8" toward the annual salary of the Dominie [Minister] Godefridus Dellius. Immediately following Pieter's name are listed the names of Wouter Pieterse, Jan Pieterse and Reynier Pieterse, no doubt Pieter's three sons, shown using the patronymic. According to this record in the court minutes of Albany, they all lived "outside the North gate, up the river."

The fact that Pieter Quackenbosch and Pieter Bont were the same person is proven several years later when Pieter traded his house and pantile shed for a house in the city of Albany:

"Know all men whom it may concern that on the fourth day of the month of January 1686/1687, appeared before me, Jan Becker, notary public, Pieter Quackenbosch, residing near the city of Albany, in the colony of Renselaarswyck, of the one part, and Jacob van Vorst, residing in the city of Albany, of the other part, who declared that they had deliberately and amicably agreed about a matter of purchase and exchange, as follows. The aforesaid Quackenbosch declares that he has sold to and exchanged with the aforesaid van Vorst his house, pantile shed and land, as far as it belongs to him and is occupied and possessed by him, saving the lord's right (except a certain small parcel of land which belongs to Mr. Jan Hendryck Bruyn), and all that is fastened thereto by earth and nail nothing in the world excepted, but the burnt brick which at present are in the kiln shall belong to Quackenbosch. The aforesaid buildings and land stand and are situated in the colony of Renselaarswyck and are at present occupied by him; they will be delivered to the purchaser on the conditions hereinbefore written buring the ensuing month of March anno 1686/1687, provided and upon the express condition that the aforesaid van Vorst shall then also deliver to the grantor his unincumbered, saving the lord's right, with all that is fastened thereto by earth and nail, nothing in the world excepted, and in addition thereto twenty beavers or the falue theof in silver money; and they promise to deliver to each other a proper deed and to free each other from further claims, all without guile or deceit, for which they bind their respective persons and properties, present and future, without any exception, subjecting the same according to law. In witness of the truth they have signed and sealed this at the house of the aforesaid Quackenbosch, situated in the colony of Renselaarswyck, on the date above written, being in the second year of riegn of his Royal Majesty of Great Britain.

Pieter Bont
otherwise called Quackenbosch------------[seal]
This is X the mark of Jacob van Vorst------[seal]"
In 1669 and again in 1680, in court cases involving the operation of the brick kiln, a Pieter Quackenbosch is mentioned using patronymic, first as "Piter Piterse Quackenbos" and later as "Pieter Pieterse Quackeboss." Several family researchers in the past have assumed this Pieter was a son of Pieter the Immigrant. This researcher fails to find any evidence in the early New York records that Pieter the Immigrant had a son named Pieter, raising the possibility that this reference was to Pieter the Immigrant himself. If so, Pieter the Immigrant's father was also named Pieter Quackenbosch (or Pieter Bont).

Adriana Suydam Quackenbush, in her 1909 genealogy of the family, identifies the Immigrant Pieter Quackenbosch with the student Petrus Quackenbosh at the University of Groningen in 1695. This connecton, however, was made prior to the discovery that Pieter Quackenbosch also used the name of Pieter Bont and was in the New World as early as 1654.

The children assigned to Pieter the Immigrant in this genealogy vary womewhat from the children assigned to Pieter in the 1909 genealogy of the family. The primary reason for these differences also derives from thediscovery that Pieter the Immigrant was in New Netherland as early as 1654. We also know from the 1674 marriage record of Pieter's son Reynier that Reynier was born in Holland. An analysis of the families of the other children of Pieter the Immigrant suggests that Reynier was probably among the younger children of the family and therefore several of Pieter the Immigrant's children were probably vorn in Holland. Assuming that a child was born to Pieter and Maritje every few years, it is possible that they were married as early as 1640. Dutch men of that period married, on the average, at about the age of 26 and women at about the age of 23. Applying these averages to a marriage date of about 1640 implies that Pieter was born about 1614 and Maritje about 1617.

The birthdate for Maritje, wife of Pieter the Immigrant, of about 1617 means that she was approaching the end of her childbearing years by the mid 1660's. It is unlikely, therfore, that she was the mother of the sons Pieter and Adriaan listed in the 1909 genealogy of the family. It is far more likely that Pieter and Adriaan were her grandsons through her son Jan.

The naming of the children of Pieter and Adriaan (as well as the sponsors at the children's baptisms) also suggest that Pieter and adriaan were sons of Jan and Machteld (Post) Quackenbosch rather than of Pieter the Immigrant and his wife Maritje. Just as the patronymic system governed the use of second names in the early Dutch families, a similar system determined the first names of the children born to a Dutch family. Under this system, the first-born son was given the first name of the child's paternal grandfather. The second son was given the first name of the maternal grandfather. For the daughters, this pattern was reversed: the first-born daughter was given the name of the child's maternal grandmather and the second daughter the name of the paternal granmother. Under this system, successive children were given the names of their great grandparents. This naming sustem was reinforced by the Dutch Reformed Church, where the person whose name was given to the child usually served as the baptism sponsor. If this person could not be present at the baptism, a close relative was usualyy substituted.

It should also be noted that the three sons of Pieter the Immigrant as shown in this history of the famly reflect the age-old tradition of "three brothers who came from Holland" that is found in many early sources, including Jonathan Pearson's Contributions for the Genealogies of the First Settlers of the Ancient County of Albany, rom 1630 to 1800 (1872).

Johannes and his wife, Machteld Post, were listed as members of the Reformed Dutch Church of Albany, NY, in 1683. Not long thereafter, Johannes, along with his brother, Reynier, settled at Canastagione on the North bank of the Mohawk River. This settlement at Canastagione was made by seven men and their families: Johannes and Reynier Quackenbosch; Jean Forte, a Frenchman; Jean Rosie, another Frenchman often employed as an interpreter on the missions to Canada; Dirck Arentse Bratt; and the brothers Gerrit Ryckse and Maas Ryckse Van Vranken. Carved out of the wilderness, the seven farms were located in a row along the river, each having about the same frontage. The nearest neighbors were across the river, some three miles distant, and at Half oon, on the same side, about five miles to the east. The following deed records the transfer of the land from the Mohawk Indian Chiefs to Jan (or Johannes) and Reynier Quackenbosch:

"Know all men by these presents that we, the undersigned, Roode and Sagodiogquisax, both sachems of Cagnewage and Canagere, being also empowered to act for Thodorasse, declare that we have heretofore sold and granted a certain parcel of land of woodland, we are now inclined to convey, because we are old people and it may perhaps be a long time yet before we have a governor general in the land, owing to which unfortunate absence of the governor general no grant can now be had; therefore, we declare that we have sold, granted and conveyed as we hereby do sell, grant and convey to Rynier and Jan Quackenbos of their heirs, a certain parcel of woodland lying on the Kanistagajoensse River, beginning at the old marked black bark oak tree where Claes van Bockhoven's claim ends, which tree stands on the side of the aforesaid river, running thence from the river to another white bark oak tree which is marked with the wolf, standing near the dwelling of Jan Quackenbos aforesaid, being by estimation bout two thousand paces long and so far into the wooks northward as all the other neighbors have privilege; for which aforesaid parcel of woodland we acknowledge that we have been fully paid and satisfied, desiring therefore furthermore that when a governor general shall have arrived it may please his excellency to grant a patent for the aforesaid parcel of woodland to the aforesaid Reynier and Jan Quackenbos, or their heirs. In witness whereof we have subscribed this with our own hands and marks and sealed in Albany this 25th of September 1689.
Was signed:
The mark X of Roode, made with his hand
These marks X were X made by Sagodiogquisax with his own hand.
Signed and Sealed in presence of ---- pr. Schuyler, Justice
Signed and Sealed in presence of ---- Dirk Wessells, Justice
Recorded ye 4th September 1700."
In 1703, Jean Fort unsuccessfully petitioned the governor for a patent on the wild land behind his farm. Three years later the seven farmers entered into an agreement with colonel Peter Schuyler to secure a patent for the land lying bhind their farms and one mile in depth. In return, they agreed to pay Colonel Schuyler 50 pounds upon delivery of the patent. The patent was finally granted on 20 April 1708 and the next year the parties released to each other one-senenth of the whole.

Machteld Jans Post has been traditionally assumed to be the daughter of a an Post. This assumption is apparently derived from the baptism record of her son Isak, where she and her husband are listed as "an Quakkelbosch and Magtelt Jansz." It is possible that the "Jansz" after her name should have read "jans," meaning "belonging to Jan" (referring to her husband), rather than "daughter of Jan." Instead, it now appears that Machteld's parents were Captain Adriaen and Claartje (Moockers) Post, who came from the Hague in the Netherlands to Staten Island in 1650 and were among the founders of the Bergen Colony in 1655. They had also lived for a time in Brazil. If Machteld was their daughter, it is likely that she was born during their stay in Brsil. This theory of the parentage of Machteld Post is supported by the Dutch naming customs, where the first born children are named after their gtrandparents. If so, Jan and Machteld's son Adriaan was probably born before their son Johannes.

Johannes I and his son Johannes II, were listed as freeholders in Canastagione in 1720.

Peter was listed as a Freeholder in Schenectady in 1720. He settled on Scott's Patent agout 1722, not long after it was secured by Captain Scott, and occupied the old Leslie Auries place on Auries Creek, Wesr of Fort Hunter.

Red: QFH&A, p. 35; Lists of Inhabitants of Colonial New York (1979), p. 19.

"David, son of, pieter Quakkenboxch and Machteld Quackenbosch, did not make advances on any of his accounts. He had not presumed on any advantageous matches; but his fortune and happineww was secure. His son John, born about the year 1725, was the first white child born on the South side of the Mohawk - West of Fort Hunter, and East of the German settlements some distance above."

After David and Anna settled on Scott's Patent where David carried on the family tradition of brick making. Their sons also worked in the brick business, as shown by a bill presented by David to Sir William Johnson in 1769. The statement, for a total of 45 pounds, itemizes the labor and materials required by David and his sons, Abraham, Peter D., John Scott and Jeremiah to produce bricks in Sir William Johnson's kiln and later to lay the bricks.

WILLIAM QUACKENBOSS was a farmer in what is now Montgomery County, New York. He probably served several terms of duty in Colonel Frederick Fisher's Third [Mohawk] Battalion of the Tryon County Militia during the Revolutionary War. William is shown at various times in Captain Jacob Gardinier's First Company in Captain John Fisher'a Fourth Company and in Captain Emanuel Defraff's Seventh Company, all of the 3rd Battalion.

In his will dated 4 March 1815, William mentions his three sons John, Peter and Cornelius, his daughters Maria, Rachel and Catharine, and his grandchildren William Putman, Cornelius Putman, Margaret Putman and Eliabeth Sternbergh. wife of Jacob F. Sternbergh. The inventory of his estate in 1818 lists a variety of notes payable to William, including notes from Hendrick Vanderver and Henry N. Gardinear. William and Catharina are buried at the Florida Graveyard, Minaville, New York.

Because no baptism for William has been found, there is no proof that he was the son of Abraham and Maria (Bowen) Quackemboss #113. Hoever, William's middle initial of A indicates that his father was named Agraham and the only Abraham Quackenboss in the Mohawk Balley during the early 1700's was Abraham #113.

I spent 35 years without a birth record and finally in 2001 traced/tracked down my records. In all the research I have done other than my birth record the only mention of my birth name is from 01/30/1968 in an obit. in the chicago tribune which I can not access so here I sit trying to find someone who knew Robin QUackenbush born 08/31/1966 that can clue me in as to who I am and where I belong in this family tree as I seem to have landed on the ground without the feathers to fly.
