Emigrant in 1662 from Amsterdam to New Amsterdam and then to Esopus aboard the De Vos, with 2nd husband and 5 children

Maycken Hendricks VAN DER OEVER travels to the new world with her children (by CROM) and their step-father Jan Joosten VAN METERSEN in 1662. "In 1662 the family emigrated on the ship The Fox (d'Vox) ... What happened next is known to us from a 18 Nov 1664 court proceeding in which Director-General Peter Stuyvesant sued Jan Joosten for "passage money for taking him, wife, children and baggage in schepels of oats, 5 1/2 schepels of summer barley, 4 schepels of summer wheat, and for the loss of horses, butter from two cows for two years, all part of Jan's contract with the West India Company to assist his settlement at Kingston." "They Settled in the New Village (Hurley), which was attacked by the Esopus Indians in 1663 and Maycken and two of her children, Gysbert and Geertje, were among those taken captive and held in the Indian Village for three months. Captain Martin Cregier led an expedition against the Indian forts in September of that year and all the captives were returned to their homes.
