    On July 23, 1664-7 [sic], Cornelius Barentsen Slecht had a deed of confirmation from Gov. Nicholls of 40-50 acres of land at Esopus (N. Y. Land Papers, I., p. 23) - Cornelis Barentsen (Borensen) "convicted upon oath and affirmance for taking of arms in a riotous and illegal manner upon the 16th of Febr., 1666, to awe, terify and supress his Majesty's English Garrison established at Esopus" "deserves to be put to death" but the Governor sentences him "to be banished for three years, giving him liberty to sell his estate at the Esopus."

    Source: Ulster County Probate Records I:32-33 notes to " BARENTSEN, TRYNTIE, wife of Cornelius Barentsen. Testamentary disposition, dated Aug. 17 (year not mentioned), and written in Dutch." Note inserted "Baptism and Marriage Registers of the Old Dutch Church at Kingston (Hoes 1891) show that at time of marriage (p. 507, No. 70) of Cornelis Barentz Slegt, widower of Tryntie Bos. and Elsie Jans, she was widow of Hendric Jochemz (Hendrick Jochemsen Schoonmaker no doubt) and not the widow of Adrien Peterson (Van Alcmaer) as stated at bottom of p. 33. It would seem that the footnote to p. 114, Vol. 2 is correct and that Elsie Jans m, (1) Adriaen Petersen (Van Alcmaer), (2) Jochem Hendricksen Schoonmaker, and (3) (as his third second wife) Cornells Barentsen Slecht or Slegt. See also Baptismal records in above which show that children of Hendrick Jochemsen and Elsje or Elsjen Jans were baptised as follows (in addition perhaps to others) : Hendrick and Volkert 17 May 1665 (Jan Jansen Van Breestee was a witness); Engeltjen 18 Mar 1663; Hilletie 30 Oct 1669. Therefore, if she m. Cornelis Barentsen Slecht after 36 Sep 1584 she could not have m. Hendrick Jochemsen (Schoonmaker) as his 3rd wife and had the above children by him in the 1660's. D.S.P.
