Notes for Ahasuerus Marselis:
SOURCE: http://www.nysm.nysed.gov/albany/bios/m/marselis.html Marselis by Stefan Bielinski
"The Marselis family of early is descended from legendary New Netherland pioneer Marcellus Jans Van Bommel who came to Beverwyck before 1664 and also from Hendrick Marselis - an Albany resident of the seventeenth century. By 1697, the two Marselis pioneers and two sons were listed in separate
households on the city census. The lines of both first settlers were represented further by the marriages of their daughters into other early Albany families. In 1720, Gysbert Marselis was a freeholder in Albany's second ward. In 1756, four Marselis households were listed on the census of Albany
householders. In 1790, three Marselis-named households remained in the city. The family became prominent in Schenectady as Gerrit and Ahasuerus, sons of Marcellus Jans and Anna Gerrits, moved there before 1700! A reconstitution on the Marselis family was begun by a project intern in 1989. At that time, seventy-three individuals met the criteria for inclusion in the early Albany community population!"
Notes: Sources: This profile is derived chiefly from community-based resources. Readily encountered, online resources appear to be derivative of the work of Jonathan Pearson. Albany-born Marselis women married members of the Hooghkerk, Van Zandt, and Yates families. Hendrick Marselis's daughters married Matthew Hooghteeling and Patrick Mc Gregory. was the son of New Netherland pioneers Marselis Janse and Anna Gerritse. He was known by the surname Marselis. He grew up in Albany but married Sara Heemstreet of Schenectady in December 1697. Their twelve children were baptized between 1698 and 1723 in the Dutch churches of Albany and Schenectady. Ahasueras or "Swear" was a member of the Albany church and a frequent baptism sponsor. Even prior to his marriage, he lived separately in a first ward house. During the late 1690s, he had some unpleasant experiences before the Albany court. After 1700, these Marselises relocated to Schenectady where he was known as a cordwainer. He retained his Albany home for several years. Perhaps he was still alive in 1727 when he was paid (along with two sons) for work done at Oswego!
