Olive Tree Genealogy is happy to announce another New Netherland Settler book available on Amazon. This book about Captain Adriaen Crijnen Post & Claartje Moockers,  is Volume 9 in my series



New Netherland Settlers: Captain Adriaen Crijnen Post & Claartje Moockers (Volume 9)

8.5x11" 66 pages Available on Amazon.com or Amazon.ca

The Dutchman Adriaen Crijnen Post and his wife Claartje (Clara) Moockers are found in Recife Brazil in 1646. By the time Brazil fell to the Portuguese in 1654 Adriaen and his femily had left for the Netherlands. From there they sailed to New Netherland.

As a representative of Baron van der Capellan, Adriaen established a thriving colony on Staten Island. The colony was burned to the ground in the Peach Tree War in 1655 and 23 colonists were killed by Indians. Adriaen, his wife, 5 children and 2 servants were among the 67 colonists taken prisoner.

This book follows Adriaen and Clara in New Netherland and also provides information on their children and grandchildren. You may also read more about Adriaen on my website at The New Jersey Dutch Post Family
