ChartsAncestors of Edward Ambrose Cooke
Marytje Boeckholt, daughter of Pieter Boeckhout and Elsie (…), died at New York, New York Co., New York, before 1738.1,2

Marytje married Elias Anderson, son of Jochim Anderson and Emmetje Jans, before 1685.1,3

Marytje (with her maiden name as usual with the Dutch) and her husband are named in the baptism record of three children, 26 August 1696: Andries, Pieter, and Jannetje. Among those children, Jannetje does not seem to be among his surviving children at his death in 1738. If this Pieter is also the husband of Cornelia Holmes, he would be at least 16 years her senior, which makes this identification somewhat questionable and the Mitchell Ancestry reports that our Peter was born 17 May 1699, so perhaps frst Peter probably died before then. See below for a note about Adries Allbody.

Their children are identified in an sale notice and subsequent deed:
"To be sold at publick Vendue the estate of Elias Andrise, Consisting of the House above Tortoise Bay, known by the name of the Union Flag, and the personal Estate left by Marytie Andrisen; on the 10th of February next, for Title andd Conditions of Sale enquire of Jacob Anderson, at Turtoise Bay on the Rock." N. Y. Journal, 6 Feb 1738.

On 25 Feb 1738, the heirs conveyed the property to Jonathan Hardman, Vintner:
Eleacom Anderson, of the City of New York, yeoman and Mary, his wife; Anderow Allbody, of the City of New York, yeoman and Annetie, his wife; Pieter Anderson, of the City of New York, Carman and Conellia, his wife; Aberam Anderson, of the City of New York, Cordwinder and Elisabet, his wife; Lucas De Witt of Crosswicks, New Jersey, yeoman and Engeltie, his wife; Samuel Stride,of the City of Boston, carpenter and Annie, his wife; James Roberson, of the same place, carpenter and Selvie, his wife, grantors of property described as, " all that messuage or tenement, dwelling house and barn and lot of land situate, lying and being to the north east of Dewtell Bay, being in breadth by the river side 40 r. and in length by the land of Mangell Janse Roll 107 r., 5 ft. and 1/2. Bounded by the N. W. by the land of Aberam Anderson from thence with a square towards the N. W. 12 r., 4 1/2 ft: bounded by the commons, and to the S. W. by the land of David Devoor. Containing 29 Acres.4

It is worth noting that Jacob Anderson, the contact named in the sale notice, is not named among the grantors. Perhaps he is a brother to Elias, but Anderson is a common name.

The farm they sold is the same as that previously owned by Peter Boeckhout and his wife Elsie. As Elias' wife is named Marytje Boeckholt in the baptism record given above, Peter and Elsie are almost certainly her parents.

In this account of Elias' children, Andrew Allbody with wife Annetie, is presumed to be the son of Elias. In Riker's Harlem,5 and Stokes' Iconography.6, by 24 July 1738 (just 5 months after the above deed), Andrew, who later took the surname Anderson, is married to Hannah de la Montayne, the widow of John Buys. In his unrecorded will, he calls himself Andries Albody, alias Anderson, and names his brother Peter as one of his executors.
