||The records of New Amsterdam show that he and a fellow craftsman, Auke Jansen, were appointed, March 10, 1653, by the Burgonmasters and schepens of New Amsterdam to view a house, about the building of which there was some litigation. These records further show that he was frequently appointed a referee during the next four or five years. And he is shown to have contributed towards the strengthening of the city wall on October 15 1655. He is also said to have been with the force sent out from New Amsterdam, September 5, 1655, against the Swedes and Finns on the south (now Delaware) reiver, at Fort Christiana. On his return to New Amsterdam he was appointed January 18, 1656, a fire warden, in place of Johan Paul Jacquet, who had resigned and "removed to the South Rvier in New Netherlands." On April 17 1657, he was admitted a "Small Burgher" of New Amsterdam, an honor which carried with it the freedom of trade and a right to memership in the respective guilds of the town, and conferred upon natives of the city, residents there one year and six weeks before the date of the charity, burgher's sons-in-law, city storekeepers, salaried servants of the company and all paying the sum of twenty-five guilers. On August 1, 1657, Christian Barentine, carpenter, was granted by Peter Stuyvesant, director general of New Nethrland, a lot in New Amsterdam, by the Land Gate, (now at Broadway and Wall streets) for a house and garden. he also owned several other properties in the neighborhood some of which are said to have covered a part of the present Trinity churchyard. Probably as a result of his trip to the Sourth river, Christian Barentise and Joost Rugger and possibly others obtained a grant of land on the south side of None Such creek, a tributoary of the Christiana, near the present site of Wilmington, Delaware, and began the erection theeon of a tide water mill. According to Amos C. Brinton, who has given much attention to the ancient mill sites of Delaware Barentise and Rugger, he began the erection of this mill in 1656. From the dates previously given, however, as well as from other records, it would appear that the date of Christain Barrenise, removal to the Delaware was sometime in the year 1657. Contemporary records also refer to the mill as a "horse mill," the truth of the matter being most probably that the horse mill was set up to serve until the tide water mill was completed. The low marshy nature of the land and the turning up of the mud to the sun caused an epidemic from which Benentise died July 16, 1658. A letter written by Vice-Director Jacob Alricks, from New Anistel (New Castle) to Stuyvesant, under date of September 5, 1658, and published in documents relating to the Colonial History of New York, vol. xii, p. 224, relates entirely to the affairs of the widow and childen of Christian Bareentse. It states that the widow had requested within three days of the burial that she desired to return to New Amsterdam, and that the property which he left be sold and that though he consents thereto he "advised and proposed to her that it would be for her best to remain in possession, she should be assisted in completing the mill, with income whereof which through the grists she would be able to diminish the expenses and live decently and abundantly with her children on the surplus, besides that she had yet three or four cows with sheep and hogs, which also could help her to maintain her family, she and her children should have remained on and in her and the father's estate, which was in good condition here, wherin the widow with the children could have continuted reputably and in position to much advantage; but she would not listen to advice. * * * that she was to be restricted in her inclinations and well being which I shall never think of, much less do." The wife of Christian Barentse was Jannetje Jans, and it is probable that they were married before coming to America, as the baptism of their eldest child is not recorded in the New York church. On December 12 1698 Jannetje Jans, wisow and executrix of Christian Barents, presented an inventory of his goods and chattels in the court at New Amsterdam, and requested that vice-Dicector Alricks, "Director of the City's Colony on the South River, where her husband died, be written in order that the chattels which are there may be sent from the South river to this place." The widow married on September 12, 1658, Lourens andriessen Van Boskerk, who was born in Holstein, Denmark. He was a member of Bergen court in 1667, its president in 1682, a member of the goernors council for many years. [Source: Davis, History of Bucks County] ||Christian Barendise

||Bucks County Miscellaneous Deed Docket Book 1, #192, 1791, says "John Booz of Bristol Township and Mary Atkinson of Bristol Township gave entered into a marriage contract and agree to keep their estates separate." His Orphans Court record says that he was married three times; having nine children by his first wife, no children by his second wife and five children by his third wife. It appears, to me that the third wife Mary could not have been Mary Atkinson, as his oldest child by her was Amos, and he had just reached the age of 14 in 1821. Bucks County Miscellaneous deed dockets Book 12, page 305 & 500, lists his children, husbands of children, and children of deceased children. ||John Booz
