Willemtje Claesje (?)

F, b. circa 1640
     Willemtje Claesje was born circa 1640 probably at New Amsterdam (Manhattan), New York. Unfortunately, no substanciating evidence has been found.1 Willemtje Claesje married Gysbert Elbertszen Uyt ten Bogaert, son of Elbert Uyt ten Bogaert, circa 1660 in New York. No marriage record has been found for Gysbert & Willemtje. It is possible that they married before they immigrated to this country.


Gysbert Elbertszen Uyt ten Bogaert


  1. [S54] John Albert Bogart, Bogart Family: Tunis Gysbert Bogaert and His Descendants, pages 12-13 - Gysbert Elbertsen Uyt Den Bogaert came to this country in 1660 and settled in New Amsterdam where he married Willemtje Claesje Swits. [Note: No other source has been found that lists her surname as Swits. She is always listed as Willemtje Claes. As for the Swits family - nothing can be found on a Willemtje. klm]
