Notes for Willem Abrahamse TIETSOORT
Willem was an emigrant.930

Willem Abrahamse Tietsoort “was in Schenectady as early as 1681, but soon after removed to Dutchess county.”968

As of 28 Nov 1687, Tietsoort was a member of the Reformed Nether Dutch Church in Schenectady and an obligation to the church was noted in the consistory minutes.969

“His lot in the village [Schenectady] was on the north side of State street… Tietsoort was in quiet possession of this lot in 1690, when the village was burned and afterwards sold it to Willem Appel, innkeeper of New York; his writings having been burned, Tietsoort, on the 14 April, 1704 requested Reyer Schermerhorn, the sole surviving trustee, to give a new deed to Appel, which he did. This lot was then 55 feet wide front and rear, 348 feet long on the east side and 292 feet deep on the west side, Amsterdam measure.”970

In 1715, Willem Abrahamse Tietsoort purchased a pasture lot from Evert Bancker. The lot was located in Schenectady, east of Teunis Swart’s lot, between Front Street and the Mohawk River opposite John Street and contained about 2 ½ morgens of land.971

“Willem Tietsoort of Dutchess county made his will Dec 11, 1716, proved May 26, 1726, in which he spoke of his wife Neeltie, daughter of Teunis Swart and of ten children, four sons and six daughters.”967
