First, the *only* documentation found to date [that I am aware of]
providing a name for the wife of Albert Albertse, the immigrant is as follows:
Tuesday, 16th October 1663, Court Minutes of New Amsterdam
Abraham Pietersen Corbyn, arrestant and plaintiff, v/s GEERTJE
DIRCKS TERHUNEN, the ribbon weavers wife, defendant and
arrested. Plaintiff's wife appearing demands from defendant
thirty-three guilders ten stivers balance according to a/c saying
she still has an old a/c, which her husband has with him,
whereby something else is also coming to her.
Defendant produces a counter account. The W. Court refers
the matter in question to Hendrick Jansen van der Vin, Old
Schepen of this city, and Hans Stein, to take up parties a/c to
decide and settle the same, to reconcile the parties if possible, if
not to render their report to the Court, the attachment remaining
so long valid, until parties shall agree among themselves.
The above identifies her as d/o Dirck 'somebody'...
There is no record of the given name Dirck among the first three
generations of DeNYSE (TYSSEN) family so it doesn't seem likely that
she was of that family.
Those who claim Geertje to be a DeNyce identify her as the d/o Teunis
Nyssen DeNyce and Femetie Jans Seals. But there is no record of a daughter,
Geertje. Furthermore, the dates simply don't compute.
Hope this helps...8^)
