2150. Peter Janse LOOCKERMANS
was born about 1630 in Antwerp, Belgium. Pieter Janse Loockermans was a
native of Turnhout, Antwerp Province,
Belgium. He was in new Amsterdam as early as 1642. He had brothers
Govert and Jacob. In his marriage contract dated 19 April 1664, Willem
Teller names his children by his first wife Margariet Donckessen and
appoints as guardians, Sander Laendertse Glen and Pieter Janse
Loockermans, uncles of said children. It is important to note that
while the Van Alen Family genealogy concludes that this means that
Pieter Loockermans was married to Maria Donckessen, that is not true:
he was married to Maria Teller, the sister of Willem, and thus an
uncle to Willem's children. SOURCE: Early Records of Albany:I:345;
