Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1635
Huizen Municipality
Noord-Holland, Netherlands
Death: Feb. 7, 1709
Dutchess County
New York, USA

Pieter Pieterse Lossing arrived in the United States in August 1659 aboard the ship De Verguide Beever, sailing from Husum in Schleswig-Holstein. Pieter's sponsor was Volckert Janse Douw. Shortly after his arrival, Pieter ran away from Mr. Douw, who sent after him in Hartford, Connecticut.

In 1675 in Albany, New York, Pieter married Catharina Willemse Hoffmayer. Pieter and Catharina had children: Gerrtruyt, married Servaes Vlierboom; Pieter, married Cornelia Rees; Johannes, married Margareta Jansen Van Orden; Mariabap, married (1) Pieter Jansen, married (2) John Witthoul; Isaac, married Sara Buys; Willem, married (1) Martie Schouten, married (2) Elizabeth Bogert; and Lourens, married Liesabeth Hoogtelling.

In 1671, in partnership with Goosen Gerritse Van Schaick, Pieter purchased the brewery of Harmen Rutgers in Albany. He later sold his half interest in it to Sybrant Goosen Van Schaick. In 1685, Pieter lived near Kingston in Ulster County. About 1687 he moved to Dutchess County where he may have been one of the first European settlers (his son Willem was called the firstborn white child in the area). Pieter was called "Peter the Brewer" in Col Peter Schuyler's patent.

The burial records of the Lutheran Church of New York City report that on 7 February 1709, "Pieter Lassen died in his house, old and tired of living, and was buried in his orchard."
