In 1660 he returned to Holland; 1661 as agent for Dirk De Wolfe, merchant of Amsterdam, he erected a salt kettle on Coney Island, which being claimed by the inhabitants of Gravesend, he brought a suit before the governor and council to make good his claim to it, and being beaten, abandoned the enterprise; 1663 leased his bouwery at Schenectady to Symon Groot for 6ys., at 500 guilders rent; 1664 Harmen Vedder, William Teller and Sander Leendertse Glen petitioned Gov. Stuyvesant to have their lands surveyed at Schenectady; 1668 being in Holland with other merchants from the province of New York, he purchased goods and chartered the ship King Charles and petitioned the king of England for permission to send the same to New York, which was granted; 1667 he lived in Albany in a house belonging to Dirk De Wolfe of Amsterdam, who, having returned to Holland, Gov. Nicolls ordered the house and lot to be confiscated; his village lot on the north side of Union Street, was the same as occupied by the late Doct. Alexander G.
