Also see . . . Anneke Jans Bogardus (1608-1663). Her second husband was the well-educated Domine Everardus Bogardus born in 1607 in Worden, Holland. He arrived in New Amsterdam in 1633 and married Anneke in March of 1638. After the death of her second husband, Anneke and her children moved to Beverwyck (now Albany) New York. Anneke died in February, 1663 at her home in Beverwyck that was located near what is now State and James Streets in downtown Albany. Descendants of Anneke Jans Bogardus are estimated in the millions and many have had dreams of great wealth over the disputed 62 acres of land she inherited from her first husband, Roelof Jansen. The land, located in Manhattan, includes parts of Greenwich Village, So-Ho and Tribeca and is considered to be worth “billions”.
