    • (1) Purple, Edwin R., "Contributions to the History of the Ancient Families of New York," New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, vol. 8 (1878), p. 11:

      AMONG the early settlers of New Netherland were five persons bearing this name?Govert, Jacob and Pieter Janse Loockermans, and their sister Anneken, and a Balthus Loockermans. The modern form of the name is Lockerman, but in the early records of thee family it is spelt Loockermans. . . .

      PIETER JANSE LOOCKERMANS was in New Amsterdam in January, 1642, and we find traces of him here as late as Oct., 1648. In 1656 he was a citizen of Beverwyck (Albany,) and purchased there, Nov. 16, of that year, a house lot of Hendrik Gerritse (Van Wie or Verwey). In April, 1658, he was a boatswain in the West India Company's service. He probably had the following children :

      i. PIETER LOOCKERMANS. . . .

      ii. MARIA LOOCKERMANS, who married, 1st, Pieter Van Alen, of Kinderhook, widower of Maria Teller, and, 2d, in 1677, Gerrit Van Nes, of Greenbush.

      iii. HILLETJE LOOCKERMANS, who married, prior to 1682, Cornelis Stephense Muller, of Greenbush, 1663; of Claverack, 1720.

      iv. CAATJE LOOCKERMANS, who married, prior to 1683, Jan Salomonse Goewey, of Albany.

      v. ANNA LOOCKERMANS, who married, 1st, prior to 1684, Adam Winne, of Albany, and, 2d, Oct. 18, 1691, Jacob Teunise Van Woert, widower of Catryn Claas, of the same place.

      (2) Getty, Innes, "The Van Alen Family in America," New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, vol. 81 (1950), pp. 4, 9-10:

      Pieter Janse Loockermans, native of Turnhout, province of Antwerp, Belgium, was in New Amsterdam as early as 1642. He had brothers, Govert and Jacob, and had married Maritje ?. In his marriage contract, dated Apr. 19, 1664, Willem Teller names his living children by his first wife, Margariet Donckesen, and appoints as guardians, Hon. Sander Leendertse Glen and Pieter Janse Loockermans, uncles of said children (ERA:I:345). The former sailed with his wife, Catalyn Donckesen on Den Harinck in 1639 (VRBM, p.821). She was a sister of Margariet Donckesen, the first wife of Willem Teller, and it is probable that Maritje, the wife of Pieter Janse Loockermans, was Maritje Donckesen; if so, Pieter Janse Loockermans would likewise be uncle to the children. It is possible, however, that Maritje, the wife of Pieter Janse Loockermans, was Maritje Teller, sister of Willem, and so have been uncle to the children.

      Children: 5 (order and dates of birth unknown):

      i. Pieter Loockermans mar. Maritje Lambertse.

      ii. Maria Loockermans mar. (1st) Peter Van Alen . . . , as his second wife; mar. (2nd) Gerrit Van Ness Feb. 14, 1677.

      iii. Hilletje Loockermans mar. Cornelis Stephense Mulder (Rec. v.74, p. 150).

      iv. Catlyntje Loockermans mar. Jan Salomonse Goewey.

      v. Anna Loockermans mar. (1st) Adam Winne; mar. (2nd) Jacob Teunis Van Woert.

According to that source, the wife of Willem TELLER was Margret/Margrieta DUNCANSON, b. perhaps at Stirling and bap. Alloa 17 Mar. 1618, d. Beverwyck (Albany) between 1659 and Apr. 1664, m. Amsterdam 6 Feb. 1639 Willem Taillier or Teller. He was b. ca. 1619/20 and d. New York City 1701.]

      (3) According to the Ancestral File, Pieter Janse LOOCKERMANS was born in Turnhout, Antwerp, Belgium in about 1612. According to other sources, Turnhout is or was in the Netherlands; however, the compiler has been unable to find a populated place named Turnout in the present-day Netherlands. Turnhout, Antwerpen, Belgium is located near the border with the Netherlands.
