    Notes 
    • 2 Apr 1648 Hendrick Jansz Westerkamp(Westercamp); received permission to seek a living in Rensselaerswyck (Albany) by day labor or otherwise and soon seems to have established himself as a baker.

      1 Apr 1650 Hendrick was granted the garden between the first and second creeks formally occupied by Capitaijn [Willem Juriaensz, the baker].

      They were living at Beverwyck near Fort Orange (now Albany, New York) by the summer of 1652. Hendrick died between 1653, when he appeared as witness in a court case, and 1654, when Femmetje appears in court and is called a widow. One of his dying wishes was that his daughter (either Grietjen or another unknown daughter) be released from her indenture. In September of 1654, Femmetje was successful in fulfilling this wish.

      Court Minutes of Rensselaerswyck (Albany)

      Thursday April 2 1648 Hendrick Westercamp is granted permission and consent to support himself in the colony by day-labor or otherwise. He may therefore select a place, whereupon we shall resolve further.

      Extraordinary session, March 16 1652 - Hendrick Westerkamp says that at the request of Commissary J. Dyckman he made an affidavit concerning the former brickyard, a little south of the first kill, in which he declared that the same belongedhe company and that they had a small house there.

      Extraordinary Session, August 20, 1652 Jan Labatie, plaintiff, against Hendrick Jansz Westerkamp, defendant, on account of 8 beavers which the defendant owes to Philip Geary, according to a note of the 16th of August of last year.

      The court orders the defendant to pay the aforesaid eight beavers in specie to the plaintiff, by virtue of his power of attorney, within the space of ten days, on pain of execution

      We dont know much about Hildebrand and Femmetje, but Jannetie must have found her way to New Amsterdam somehow.

      Femmetje was an interesting character who ran her deceased second husbands bakery and appears in numerous court disputes in the records of several towns in New Netherland.

      1659 First Esopus War - Peter Hillebrants is among those kidnapped and later released

      1663 Second Esopus War - Grietjen Hendricks Westercamps husband was killed. Greitjen and her three children were kidnapped and later rescued.
