    S.R. Durand:
    "Claes Jansen Stavast was frequently called simply Claes Jansen or Claes Janszen. His name appears for the first time in the records of New York in 1664, but it is not known if he had been a resident there for some time or had arrived only at that time. No records of his baptism, of his children or of his marriage have been found in the Reformed Dutch Church of New York, so it is thought he and his wife, Aefje Gerrits, had been married in Holland and their children had been born there before coming to America. In the record of the marriage of their daughter, Jannetje, it states that she was from Kuynder in Overyssel, so it is thought the family came from that town in Holland.
    Claes Jansen Stavast and his wife, Aefje Gerrits, were received into membership of the Reformed Dutch Church in New York on April 6, 1664. This was just four months before the English captured New Netherlands. In Valentine's History of New York, it is stated that the Stavasts were residents of Hoogh Straat in 1664, but left the city the next year. They moved to Albany and there are many records of them while living there.
    In 1682 they apparently returned to New York, because on November 9th of that year Claes Jansen Stavast and Eva Gerrits, his wife, were again enrolled as members of the Reformed Dutch Church. They were on a list of communicants of this church in 1686. On the rolls of this church there is a memorandum that Claes Janszen Stavast died at N. Albany on August 6, 1687.
    I know of only two daughters, our ancestress, (177) Thysie Claesen Stavast and her sister, Janettje Claes Stavast, who was married November 17, 1671 to Evert Wessels. She died in 1726."
