Luykas Wyngaert was born in November 1686. He was the youngest son of Albany baker and trader Luykas Gerritse and his wife, Anna Van Hoesen Wyngaert. He was sometimes referred to as "Luykas Wyngaert, Jr."
In 1709, he was left a house in Albany and one in Kinderhook in the will of his parents. He was instructed to make five payements for the benefit of his brother and sister.
Like his father, Luykas was a baker. He appears to have lived with his parents in their first ward house.
A Luykas Wyngaert was mentioned in the community record in July 1748 when that person was ordered by the city government to make a new bridge over the Ruttenkill and to help repair broken down bridges in Albany.
We seek additional information on the later life and passing of this individual.
