Bording Family [Gen. 1 & 2]

Bording Family:
 

First Generation

1.  Claes Bording1 was born (date unknown).

Claes Bording and Marritje/Maery Symons1 were married before 1615 in probably Denmark. estimate; no source Marritje/Maery Symons1 was born (date unknown).

Claes Bording and Marritje/Maery Symons had the following child:

              2              i.   Claes Claeszen Bording, born 1615–1620, possibly Denmark; married Susanna Lies, 8 Aug 1649, Reformed Dutch Church, New Amsterdam, New Netherland; died Oct 1679–May 1680, New York City, New York, British America.

Second Generation

2.  Claes Claeszen Bording13 (Claes-1) was born in 1615–1620 in possibly Denmark.2 He died in Oct 1679–May 1680 at the age of 64 in New York City, New York, British America.2 The birthplace of Claes Bording is open to much debate. His marriage record states he was from Ravox. [Roubaix, France on the Belgian border?]. Bording, Ringkobing Province, Denmark has also been suggested. He was of Bloemendaal, North Holland, The Netherlands in notorial recods of 1646/47. Danzig, Demark has appeared in numerous sources. Overlooked here is that Danzig is now Gdansk, Poland. Claes has also been shown as being from Danzig, then part of Prussia.

From the Half Moon Series: Papers on Historic New York [edited by Maud Wilder Goodwin, Alice Carrington Royce, Ruth Putnam, Eva Palmer Brownell, 1897, 2nd series, G.P. Putmnam's Sons, p. 223] New Amsterdam Family Names:
It seems that Claes Bordingh came from the the neighborhood of Danzig on the Baltic, and that his name was derived from his occupation as a lighterman....for in this East Prussian dialect "bording" means boatman or lighterman.

: BORDING, Klaus - aus der Gegend von Danzig, wohlhabender Burger in New York. (from the neighborhood of Danzig, prosperous citizen of New York).

Bording may have been born in Denmark or Danzig, but he was apparently a Dutch resident, or working as a mariner for the Dutch West India Company, when he arrived in New Amsterdam. His mother was residing in Amsterdam as late as 1647.

The first record of Claes Claeszen Bording appeared in the Minutes of the Amsterdam Chamber of the Dutch West India Company on 8 September 1636 when he was engaged as mate on the ship Sutphen, at 36 guilders per month. This would suggest that Claes was probably 18 to 21 at the time, placing his birth between 1615 and 1618.

He probably arrived in New Amsterdam in the fall of 1646 with Seger Teunissen. Teunissen was master of the Unity (Eendracht) and made a trip to New Amsterdam in 1644, returning to The Netherlands in 1645. He returned in October or November of 1646. Teunissen and Bording "of Bloemendaal" borrow 600 guilders from Olphert Dircksz to fund a ship and cargo to New Amsterdam. Seger was killed by Indians on a voyage up the North [Hudson] River in July 1647. Claes failed to repay the loan and Dircksz took him to court on 16 March 1648. 

Claes made an arrangement with Hendrick Jansz Backer and Pieter Jansz Kool on 11 August 1647 to have cargo [including 70 beaver pelts valued at 600 guilders] shipped to "Maery Symons mother of Claes Claeszen Bording" in Holland. On 29 September the ship wrecked and Backer, along with the cargo were lost. It is possible that the pelts were intended to pay off the debt to Dircksz, with Claes' mother acting for him.

Bording, with his yacht, the Juffroutien, conducted a trading operation along the South [Delaware] River as far north as Fort Orange. In 1648 and 1653, he was accused of dealing in contraband articles and smuggling.

Claes was involved in numerous court cases. He dissolved a partnership with Aryn Jansen. [6 November 1648] Claes and Pieter Jacobsen Marius gave power of attorney to Pieter Cornelissen to collect debts owed them at the South River. [24 March 1651] Bording successfully sued Willem Albertsen for seven beavers due him. [18 August 1653]  He successfully sued for 100 guilders on 13 April 1654. Claes and six others signed a petition to have the court order Jacob Stevensen and Mary Joosten, his wife, to leave New Amsterdam, or be punished, for their "wicked, enormous, beastly, dreadful and immoral lives." Bording and Marius, evidently business partners, were again in court in 1656, 1658 and 1670

Both Claes and Susanna were witnesses to numerous baptisms during their lifetimes.

Claes was listed as a cadet on the Muster roll of companies of the Burgher Corps of New Amsterdam in 1653.

Bording is mentioned in some sources as a "politician of some influence." That influence did not go far enough to get him elected. There is no record of Claes having held any offices.

He and Susanna Lies were married on 8 August 1649. They were shown as members of the Dutch Reformed Church in New Amsterdam in 1659 and 1673. By 1664, Bording had acquired a house on thesouth side of Pearl Street, west of Whitehall.

The Bordings made a joint will on 31 October 1679. The survivor  was to have the estate for life. It was then to go to the five surviving children Tryntje [wife of Lucas van Thienhoven], Marritje, Annitje [wife of Cornelis 'Cregoe'], Symon and Hester. The will was proved 5 May 1691. Witnesses were Pieter Jacobs Marius [Claes' lawyer and business partner] and John Vandeventer.

A court document from 1680, undated, but immediately following an entry for 8 June, stated that Susanna was the "Relect of Claes Bording" who had sent some goods to Boston "during his life Tyme in June last past..." If Susanna was a "Relect" or widow in June 1680 and both she and Claes were alive at the end of October 1679, then Claes died during that seven month period.

Susanna was living in 1686, when she appeared on the church membership list, and had died by May 1691, when the will was probated.  



Claes Claeszen Bording and Susanna Lies were married on 8 Aug 1649 in Reformed Dutch Church, New Amsterdam, New Netherland.1,4 Susanna Lies12, daughter of Maturijn Lies and Marij/Marritje Symons, was born circa Apr 1631 in Amsterdam, North Holland, The Netherlands.5 She was baptized on 6 Apr 1631 in Amsterdam, North Holland, The Netherlands.5 She died on 22 Dec 1690–5 May 1691 at the age of 59 in New York City, New York, British America.12 Susanna was a woman of many names. She appeared as Lies [Lees, Lues, Elias], Marsuryans [Martyrns], Vreught [Vreucht] and assorted variations of all three surnames in the New Amsterdam records.

Susanna was the daughter of Maturin Lies and Marij [Marritje] Symons. Her baptism took place on 6 April 1631 in Amsterdam. There is no further record of her father.

She probably arrived in New Amsterdam in 1647, when her step-father, Peter Vreucht, was appointed by the West Indies Co. as a surgeon for the Dutch colony. Vreucht died that year, leaving a wife, step-daughter and a son or step-son, Willem.

Susanna married Claes Bording in 1649. She was a member of the Dutch Church in 1686, shown as the widow of Claes Bording. Her name also appeared among the list of those owning money to merchant Asser Levy that same year.

Susanna died between 22 December 1690 and 5 May 1691, when the Bordings' joint will was probated.
