    • (1) Purple, Edwin R., "Contributions to the History of the Ancient Families of New York," New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, vol. 8 (1878), pp. 11, 12-13:

      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. . . .

      ANNEKEN [ANN] LOOCKERMANS, j. d. Van Turnhout, married Feb. 26, 1642, OLOFT STEPHENSZEN [VAN CORTLANDT] j. m. Van Wyck in Duurstede. She probably carne out with her brother Govert, on his return to New Netherland in Nov., 1641, her name first appearing in the records as one of the witnesses at the baptism, Dec. I, 1641, of his eldest dau. Marritje. In the Members Book of the Dutch Church in New York, her husband's name is recorded Adolph Stephenszen Van Courtlt, and at the baptism of their children, Olof Stephenszen Van Courtlant and Van Courtlandt. The name is now spelled, we believe, by the family, Van Cortlandt.

      Olof Stephenszen Van Cortlandt came to New Amsterdam in the. ship Haring in 1637, a soldier in the West India Company's Service. He was promoted by Gov. Kieft, and in July, 1639, appointed Commissary of Cargoes, at a salary of thirty guilders ($12) per month. In 1645 was elected one of the Board of Eight men to adopt measures against the Indians, and in 1649, one of the Board of Nine men, of which body the following year he was President. He was elected Schepen of the City in 1654, and in 1655 was advanced to the higher position of Burgomaster, an office he held during the years 1656-58-59, 1662-63 and 1665. He was Alderman in 1666-67, 71, and succeeded Mr. Isaac Bedlow, upon the death of that gentleman, in the same office in 1673. His place of residence was in the Brouwer Straat, now Stone Street, where he was also engaged in business as a Brewer, in which occupation he became wealthy. "He had the character of being a worthy citizen and a man most liberal in his charities." He died April 4, 1684, having survived his wife about a year.
