Jannetje Teller Schuyler


Jannetje Teller probably was born before 1664. She was the daughter of New Netherland pioneers Willem Teller and Margaret Donchesen Teller.

In November 1684, she married Arent Schuyler at the Albany Dutch church. By 1700, six children had been christened in Albany and New York. In March 1685, they filed a joint will. Jannetje was named heir and executor of their estate.

These Schuylers initially made their home in Albany's second ward. But by the mid-1690s, they had re-located to New York.

Jannetje Teller Schuyler probably died shortly after the birth of her last child in 1700. Arent Schuyler re-married at the end of 1702.
