Lineage of the Brink Family
from Olde Ulster Magazine

THE Brink Family in America (except those who have come with the recent Holland emigration since 1846) are descended from Lambert Huybertse (Brink), who arrived in New Amsterdam in December, 1659, with the Geloove (Faith). The entry upon the ship's books is " Lambert Huybertsen from Wagening [Wageningen], wife and two children." To these must be added a son, Cornelius, born on the voyage. Wageningen is a town on the right bank of the Rhine in Gelderland. It is about twelve miles from Arnhem. It contains the state agricultural college and the school for forestry. These are beautifully situated on a bluff. The Van Wagenen family of this county came from this town and take their name therefrom.

A correspondent of OLDE ULSTER writes from Holland that the father of Lambert Huybertsen (Brink) must have died within a year after the emigration of his son to America as he finds a protocol on record of which he sends the following translation

"Protocol van Vestenisse Wageningen 1660. Enjoined at the Archives of the Kingdom at Arnhem.

"Jantsen Joosten, widow of Huybert Lambertse, assisted by Claes Jansen, chosen by her as her representative in rights, for one moiety, and Lambert Huyberts, Peter Huyberts and the above named Claes Jansen as the husband and the representative in right of his wife Gysbertjen Huyberts and also representing the minor brothers and sisters of his wife, all heirs of the late Huybert Lambertse, their father, for the other moiety, declare to have sold, transported and given in plain possession to Gerrit Hindercamp and Aeltjen Foenissen, his wife, and their heirs, a certain house and garden situated on Dolderbrinck, in the neighborhood of Wageningen, etc." Here follows the description. It is declared to be a free and heired estate." It is dated 28 November, 166o.

The Lambert Huyberts mentioned must have been the one who emigrated to America during the previous year. The family seems to have come to Wageningen from Harderwyk, in the same province of Gelderland, a score or more miles north.

The Brink family is very numerous in the Netherlands. The name is in various forms as van den Brink (of the Brink); van Brink (of Brink); Ten Brink (the Brink); Brinkhuis (Brink house); Brinkhorst (Brink grove); Brinkenberg (mount Brink); Brinkerhoff (a paved square); Dolderbrink (valley Brink).

The word Brink means " park, square or village green." The correspondent writes farther:

" There are many country seats and villas in Holland with the name de Brink or den Brink, among others a magnificent country seat near Arnhem called de Brink (the park).

Frederik de Brincke and his sister Christina gave goods to the church of Keppel, in Gelderland, in 1349. Lambert Brinck is mentioned in a charter of Duke Arnold of Guelder in 1437. In 1503 another Lambert Brinck was master of the Sanct Crucis Guild at Harderwyk. This family dwelt in .the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries principally at Harderwyk, and several members were Burgomasters there, viz:

1515. Barthold Brink.

1526. Alphert Brink.

1529. Alphert Janz Brink.

1552. Lambert Brink.

1597. Alphert Brink, LL.D.

1620. Ernst Brink.

1650. Johan Alphert Brink.

1683. Engelbert Brink.

Ernst Brink was the son of Dr. Alphert and was a very learned man and celebrated antiquarian. He was born in Harderwyk in 1381. From 1612-15 he was the secretary of the Dutch embassy at Constantinople, and from 1618-48 librarian of the University of Harderwyk. His sister Elizabeth married Lambert van Domselaer." The name of Lambert was a favorite one in the family.

The arms of the family are thus described:

"d'argent an boeuf de gueules, corne'd'or, marchant surune terrassede sinople. Bourlet et lambrequens d'argent et de gueules. Cinier: une corbeille d'or en sortent des flamines de feu." 

Arriving at New Amsterdam Lambert Huybertse (Brink) had the son born at sea baptized Cornelis and then came to the Esopus. In 1662 he leased for five years certain lands at Hurley, and at the expiration of he lease in 1667 he purchased these and other parcels, here and in Marbletown. His name frequently appears in the records of the Schout's Court in various capacities and he is a Witness to the Indian treaty made in Hurley in 1677 upon which the New Paltz Patent is based. His name is also signed as witness twice to the renewals of the celebrated Indian treaty negotiated in 1665 by Governor Nicolls. He was one of the protesting burghers at what Governor Nicolls called "the mutiny at the Esopus" in 1667 and one of the inhabitants of the Esopus who petitioned Governor Sir Edmond Andros in 1680 that a minister be sent there. His wife and three children were captured at the burning of Hurley by the Indians June 7th, 1663, and were captives three months, and he served as a soldier in Captain Henry Pawling's company in 1670.

He had charge, for some time, of the lands in the Esopus of Director Petrus Stuyvesant, and at one time leased one of his farms there. The homestead farm of Lambert Huybertse Brink was the farm of the late Peter P. Brink, west of the creek at Hurley, and during these two hundred and forty-four years since it came into the possession of the family has never passed out of it. Across the road lies the farm of the late James D. Wynkoop which, like the Brink lands, has never passed from the family since 1662.

On April 27th, 1689, he " makes over" to his sons Huybert and Pieter three hundred and twenty-four acres of land in " Horley " and on the 9th of March, 1702, he conveys to Cornelis Cool, his son in-law sixtythree acres of land " at Horley, along the Esopus."

On the 12th of February, 1696, Lambert Huybertse (Brink) made and executed his last will and testament, which will was proved on the 11th of April, 1702. The will is written in Dutch from which the below is translated. The old cemetery in Old Hurley contains some very ancient slabs of redstone adjacent to the graves of generations of the family on which may be traced initials of the early members of the family dying more than two hundred years ago.


The following is a translation of the will of Lambert Huybertse (Brink), of Hurley, the ancestor of the Brink family in America, who came from the Netherlands in 1659 and was one of the earliest settlers of 'Hurley, Ulster county, New York. He settled on the farm on the west side of the Esopus creek still in possession of a descendant bearing the family name. The will is recorded in the office of the county clerk of Ulster county and is translated from the original Dutch.


Be it known hereby to everybody, that to-day, the 12th day of February in the year of our Lord 1695/6, 1, Lambert Huybertse, of Hurley in the county of Ulster; well in body and in full power and use of my mind and memory, (praised be the Lord), considering the shortness and frailty of human life, the certainty of death and the uncertain hour thereof, and desiring to set everything in order, make this my last will and testament, in manner and form as follows: Revoking, annulling, declaring null and void, all and every testament and testaments, will and wills, heretofore made and passed, either verbally or in writing, and this alone to be taken far my last will and testament and no other.

First, I commend my soul to God Almighty, my Creator, to Jesus Christ, my Redeemer, and to the .Holy Spirit. my Sanctifier, and my body to the earth, whence it came, to be buried in a Christian manner, and there to, rest until my soul and body shall be reunited on the last day and enjoy the eternal joy of immortality, which God in his grace has promised and prepared by the only merits of our Saviour, for all who truly repent and believe in him. Concerning such wordly state of houses, lands, money, goods. accounts or what further belongs to my estate, which the Lord has been pleased to grant me beyond my merits, I order, give, and dispose thereof in form and manner following:

First, it is my wish and will, that all my honest debts shall, in due time, be paid.

Secondly, I give to my youngest son, Pieter Lambertse two horses, also, that the house in which he lives, shall be finished in garret, floor doors, win- dows, &c., out of my estate without anything being paid therefor to my other heirs. I further give to my said son, his order, heirs, or administrators, one just fifth part of my whole estate.

Thirdly, I give to my sons, Huybert Lammerse and Cornelis Lammerse, and to my sons-in-law, Cornelis Cool and Arien Gerretsen, one just fifth part of my whole estate, to dispose, each for himself, of said fifth part of my estate, as he pleases, only under this condition, that Arien Gerretsen shall have and enjoy the just fifth part of my land, lying next to the land belonging to him, and that in consideration of the fertility of this land my other four heirs shall have and enjoy in ownership my house, barn, &c., without paying therefor anything to said Arie Gerretse. but they shall divide in equal shares all other movable estate among themselves

Fourthly, I appoint as executors of this my last will and testament my said heirs, to-wit, Huybert Lammertse, Cornelis Lammerse, Pieter Lammerse, Cornelis Cool, and Arie Gerretse, demanding this my foregoing testament shall be fully obeyed and carried out. Thus done at Kingston on the day and year as above.

Before signing and passing this it is my wish that my son-in- law Cornelis Cool shall have in one piece two shares of the land occupied by me, to wit, the one now made over to him, and the other bought by him from my son Lammert Huybertse.
