    • (1) Fish, Stuyvesant, "Peter Stuyvesant," An Address Delivered at the Annual Meeting of the Order of Colonial Lords of Manors in America, April 21, 1930, Baltimore, MD: 1930, p. 25:

      BALTHAZAR LAZARUS STUYVESANT, the oldest son of the Governor, was baptized Oct. 13, 1647; he was one of the signers of the petition to surrender the city to the English 1664. (N. Y. Colonial Doc. II, 249, 423.) He was furnished with a plantation at Cura??ao in the West Indies by his father, and he arrived there Dec. 11, 1664; (Calendar of Dutch MSS, page 334). He made frequent visits to New York and was in the City May 24, 1674. Family tradition states that he was dissatisfied with the surrender of the Province to the Crown of England. He removed to the Island of St. Thomas, W. I., and died at Novis before his mother made her will Jan. 29, 1678. (Valentine's Manual, 1851, p. 444). He married in the West Indies and had two daughters born at St. Eustace.

      [i] Judith, borne [sic] 1674, married _____ Edsall

      [ii] Catharine, born 1675, married Thomas Tassamaker.

      Wife's name unknown. He died before Jan. 29, 1678. (N. Y. Hist. Soc. Col. 2d Series, I, 455; Dunlap's History of New York, Vol. II, Appendix, page 39).

      As regards the daughters of Balthazar Stuyvesant, it seems likely that they returned to New York after their father's death.
