Pieter Loockermans, Jr.
Stefan Bielinski

Pieter Loockermans, Jr. was the son of Pieter and Maria Donchesen Lookermans - pioneer settlers of Beverwyck. He was called "the younger" throughout the 1660s.

He appears to have come of age by 1660 when that name appeared on a list of Beverwyck-area fur traders petitioning for more liberal access to sources of furs.

Over the years, he appeared before the Albany court, served as a referee, juror, and baptism sponsor. He was a member and supporter of the Albany Dutch church.

He probably did not marry and appears to have left no descendants.

He may have been the Pr. Lokermans listed on a census of Albany householders taken in 1679. He was listed with the church members living outside the North Gate in 1683. In 1689, his name appeared on an assessment roll with the farmers in Marte Gerritse's Company.

The name of Pieter Loockermans, Jr. was not listed on the Albany or Rensselaerswyck census taken in 1697.
