William Holmes, son of George Holmes and Jeen (…), was born probably shortly before his baptism at Reformed Dutch Church, New Amsterdam, New Netherlands, 3 August 1644.1 He died before 12 July 1731, when his will was proved.2,3,4,5

William married Lysbeth Claes Wipp, daughter of Claes Wiip, at New York City, New York Co., New York, 9 June 1675.2,6

William Holmes left a will dated 18 September 1705, and proved 12 Jul 1731, leaving his entire estate to his wife Elizabeth, for life, and after her death half is left to son George, and the other half to daughters Brochie, Yanike, Judith, and Priscilla.

Although he described himself as sick and weak, he apparently survived until probably shortly before his will was proved.3,7,4
