David K. Conover:
" 'This day, date underwritten, before me Cornelis Van Tienhoven, secretary, in the presence of the undersigned witnesses, appeared Wolphert Gerritsen and Gerrit Wolphertsen, as guardians of Lambert Cornelissen Cool, and at the request of said Lambert Cool, have permitted him to go with his cattle to his brother-in-law Claes Jansen, in order to take up together some plantation or farm, and we the principals in the capacity aforesaid have consented hereto as we are bound in the place of father and mother to promote the above named Lambert Cool's interest and we cannot perceive that he will earn anything, much less prosper so long as he remains with his father, Cornelis Lambertsen. We have therefore considered it advisable to permit him to do something for himself in company aforesaid. Done at Fort Amsterdam the 22 of August 1639.

This is the mark X of Wolphert Gerritsen
This is the mark X of Gerrit Wolphertsen
Maurits Jan and Frerick Lubbertsen ; witnesses'

'Consent of the guardians of Lambert Cornelissen Cool to let Cool remove his cattle and take up a farm with his brother-in-law Claes Jansen' 'Copied with slight variations from E. B. O'Callaghan's manuscript translation of the original in the New York Colonial MSS., Vol. I, p. 155, which was destroyed in the Capitol fire of March 29, 1911, Albany, October 4, 1933 ;signed A.J.F. van Laer' on Aug 22, 1639.

On March 11, 1647, Gerrit Wolphertson (van Kouwenhoven) received a patent for "a certain piece of land, gouat the (Ma) Rechawieck, both the maize and woodland, on the marsh of the Gouwanus Kil, between the land of Jacob Stoffelsen and Frederick Lubbertsen, extending from the aforsaid marsh till into the woods, till to the land of said Frederick, till to the land of Andries Huddle, northeast by north, a little northerly, 148 rods: behind through the woods, till to the land of the aforesaid Jacob Stoffelsen, southeast by east 80 rods next to the land of Jacob Stoffelsen aforesaid, till to the aforsaid marsh, southwest a little westerly 165 rods, along the marsh to the place of beginning 60 rods, with an oblique outpoint: amounting in all to 29 morgens, 341 rods." Patents, GG, 172

This plot evidently fronted on the main road leading from Flatbush, through the village of Breuckelen, which was located at this point, to "the Ferry," and is included in lands marked as G. Martense's on Butt's map. Wolphertsen sold this property to Nicholas Jans, baker, of New York on Mar 11, 1647.

Gerret, oldest of the three sons, settled in Midwout (Flatbush) near Achterveldt on 50 morgens of land, deeds for which are dated January 26, 1638 and September 16, 1641. In 1643, Gerret was one of a group sent to the Staats General in Holland to present the forlorn and defenseless condition of New Nederland settlers due to Director Wilhelmus Kief's inciting war amongst the Indians. Grandsons of Gerret; Cornelius, Albert, Peter, and Jacob--settled in Monmouth County, New Jersey about 1700. Another grandson, William, remained in Flatlands."
