I am impressed. How can you send that much factual information that fast.
The Rev Jacob Fabritius is an interesting man. He was my grandma's second
husband. No issue found from second marriage.
You wrote <Ethel, Rev Jacob Fabritius was not a model citizen, and you may
wish to surgically remove him from your files.> No, he will fit in with a
lot of the other rascals I have in New Amsterdam.
You outdid yourself. I didn't know The History of the Vanderburgh Family
was on line. Will get to than one tomorrow.
Thanks again. Between you and Liz, it's coming together.

>From my Notes:
Following the death of Lucas Dircks Vanderburgh circa 1669:
If all her children were still living when Lucas died, Annetje
(Cornelis) was left with seven children under the age of 17. Not
remaining long a widow, Annetje remarried to Jacob Fabritius, a German
Lutheran minister. Rev. Jacob Fabritius had come from Holland in 1669
and was given a church at Albany, NY. While there, he was suspended by
Gov. Lovelace for conduct unbecoming to his calling. During that year
or early 1670, he had met and married Annetje. They were definitely
married by 13 Apr 1670, when Gov. Lovelace wrote instructions to Capt.
Carre, responding to a request by Fabritius:
Upon ye Request of Magister Jacob Fabritius pastor of ye Lutheran
Confession comonly called ye Augustan who by the Dukes Lycence hath a
Congregation here I have graunted my Passe to him & his wife to goe to
New Castle of any place in Delaware Ryver. I pray show him all civill
respect when he comes amongst you & take care he receives no affront
there & I prsume he will comport himselfe wth that Civillity &
moderation so as to give no just occasion of offence to othrs. I am
Yor very Loving friend.
Fort James in New
York this 13th day of
Gov. Lovelace was sensitive to the problems that Capt. Carr might face
with Fabritius, when he added the following to his instructions:
I doe recommend to you a suite wch ye Magistr will have there on behalfe
of his wife. She was ye widdow of Lucas Dircks van Bergh of this place
who sould a house & Lott at New Castle to Reyneer van Eyst whose widdow
is now ye wife of ..... Baroone. There was formerly obtayned in
execution agt ye buyer of ye house for non payment of nyne hundred
Guilde ye summe of wch it was sould besydes Coste, as will appeare upon
ye Recorde. I Doe think it just & reasonable that ye former execution
be offered or renewed so that ye persons concerned be no longer delayed
from ye receipt of their moneys due to them.
Aprill ye 13th 1670."
"Documents Relating to the Colonial History of New York," Volume XII
"Documents Relating to the History of the Dutch and Swedish Settlements
on the Delaware River,." By Berthold Fernow. Albany. The Argus
Company, Printers. 1877. Page 473. "Letter from Gov. Lovelace to
Capt. Carr, informing him of Dome Fabricius' intention to remove to
Delaware, and recommending him to the Captain's attention."
Numerous court appearances followed, involving Frabritius and his
drunkeness. See the index in RNA, primarily records from Volume 7 of the
Court Minutes in 1674.
By the end of 1674, Fabritius had worn out his welcome in New York and
was again removed from the pulpit, with permission to go to Delaware.
While in Delaware in 1675, he immediately had difficulties with the
civil authorities. While serving as a minister at New Castle, he was
arrested for disturbing the peace and sent back to New York to stand
trial on 15 Sep 1675. As a result, he was suspended from the ministry.
Fabritius next appeared in the Wiccacoe Church [now Gloria Dei] at
Philadephia in 1677. Five years later, he became blind, and apparently
continued there until his death around 1691-93.
Annetje's whereabouts after her appearance in the New Amsterdam Court
Records are uncertain. She was probably in New Castle Delaware for a
short time in 1674 or 1675. She was still married to Fabritius in 1683
when a New York court decided against her on 6 Oct 1683 in her suit
against Luke de Paw for recovery of land at Newtown, Long Island.
