  • Note:
    Tryntje Jonas served as the official midwife for the West India Company in New Amsterdam. On 26 November 1635 the Amsterdam Chamber of the West India
    Companyrecorded in its minutes that a letter had been received from her, requesting an increase in wages and some necessaries to.... [The sentence was not
    finished and nothing was said about the action taken.]. We can surmise that she had probably served at least a year before asking for an increase in wages. For the
    lack of a more exact date, we assume that she began serving by the second halfof 1634. We do not know when she stopped serving or when she died. She appears
    to have served until her death or the onset of her terminal illness; for on 11 August 1647, as Domine Bogardus was about to sail to the Netherlands, Dirck
    Cornelissen van Wensveen, husband of Marritje Jans, gave Domine Bogardus, the other son-in-law of Tryntje Jonas, a power of attorney to collect from the West
    India Company the sum of 254 guilders, 2 stivers and 8 pennies as appears on the Book of Monthly Wages, No. F. folio 17, which was due at the death of Trijn
    Jonas van Maesterland, in her lifetime, midwife here in New Netherland.
