Biographical Sketch of Pieter Stoutenburg

Pieter Stoutenburg, the founder of this family, who died March 9, 1698-99, was one of the early Dutch immigrants in New Amsterdam, now (1910) New York. He arrived probably before 1649. He was a schoolmaster. The marriage connections of his family and the offices held by them, show that his family was one of good standing, and he had a house and a large garden on the east side of Broadway, just north of Wall street. He is stated to have been aged eighty-six at his death. His name is sometimes spelled Stoutenburgh. He married, the banns being recorded in New York, July 25, 1649, Aefje van Tienhoven, a near relative, perhaps a sister of Cornelis van Tienhoven, the secretary and treasurer of the colony.
