Have you ever seen "Genealogies of the First Settlers" of the "Ancient County of Albany" from 1630 to 1800 by Prof. Jonathan Pearson
Genealogical Publishing Co.Inc. Baltilmore 1976
There is a nice little write up on Roeloff Gerritise .
I have recently found out my gggrandmother was Alida Van Der Werken b. in Waterford, N.Y. ?? m. David Earle and moved to N.Y.C.
I am wondering if she could be the same Alida b. 1758 to Johannes (son of Gerrit Roeloffse, son of Roeloll Gerritse).
Any help finding out if this is her family and anything else about her will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
Rosalie in Bar Harbor, Me.

Hi Rosalie,

I responded to your message on the Netherlands. I need to check my records to the VDW that I have found in Maine. I believe I have very little. And as to Alida, my records conflict with yours, which means nothing, just a new puzzle to work out.

Will get back to your.

Hello,

I'm also trying to find out more about the Roelof Gerritse Van Der Werken; suspect that I found the same reference as you did but was unable to follow the thread back to the Netherlands. Did you ever have any luck with this?

Thanks for your help,

Kris, I was excited to see your message on the Van Der Werken family. I descend thru Roeloff G. Van Der Werken and Geertruy Jacobse Van Oostrant's daughter, Maritie Roeloffse Van Den Werke, who md Jan Kidney (Cittene) "Van Barbados". Where did you get the ref to the ship and the date they came to America? I had never seen this before!!! Did it come from Gen. of 1st Settlers of Ancient Co. of Albany by Prof. Jonathan Pearson? I'm in SLC, UT . If so, I could likely find it at the Fam. Hist. Libr. here. I am too looking for some record of the immigrant's birth since he was an exact town in the Netherlands in 1642. Please email me .Tks Steve M. Hall

I, too, am decended from Maritje Roeloffse. She married John {not Jan] Kidney in New York on May 1, 1698. their first child was Roelof Kidney. I am decended from their fourth child, Robert.
I am having trouble finding Nelson Kidney, son of John B [or Peter] Kidney, son of Peter Kidney, son of Robert Kidney, son of John Kidney and Maritje Roeloffse. Any info?
