Birth*circa 1800Nancy 'Annie' Scott was born circa 1800 at Northampton Co, VA.1 
Marriage*1 July 1819She married William W. Scott, son of William (of Azariah) Scott Jr. and Elizabeth Moore, on 1 July 1819 at Northampton Co, VA. Sarah Scott was the security on the M.L.B. of William W. Scott and Nancy Scott. (NOTE: The proof that Nancy was the daughter of George (of Baily) Scott and his wife Sarah Kemp is based on the assumption that this Sarah Scott was the mother of Nancy Scott. However, Sarah Scott, who outlived Nancy, did not name Nancy's children in her will dated 18 Jan 1839, but her granddaughter Elizabeth A. Dix witnessed her will, and Sarah's son George, who also outlived Nancy, did not name Nancy's children in his will, which seems odd since he did name his deceased brother Thomas' children. It has been suggested that Nancy Scott was the daughter of Benjamin Scott and his wife Sally Nottingham, but after Benjamin Scott died without a will his land was divided between his son Benjamin N. Scott, his daughter Elizabeth N. Scott and his grandson John T.P. Scott, a grandson, the son of his dec'd son John N. Scott, without any mention of a daughter Nancy 'Annie' Scott.)1 
Death*14 September 1822Nancy 'Annie' Scott died on 14 September 1822 at Northampton Co, VA. She died giving birth to her son Azariah Francis Scott.2

Birth*circa 1600Metje Boonen was born circa 1600 at Holland.1 
Marriage*circa 1624She married (-----) Wessells circa 1624 at Holland.1 
Married Namecirca 1624 As of circa 1624,her married name was Wessells. 
Anecdote*1653 In 1653 Warnaer Wessels, his brothers Harmanus and Dirck; sisters Henrica, Christina and Maria along with their mother Metje (Boonen) Wessels emigrated to New Amsterdam. While we do not know the exact date of their passage, Warnaer is first identified in the court records of New Amsterdam in December of 1653.2 
Anecdote1655 Little is known about her early life or the date of her passing. She was an independent business woman who operated a tavern in which much public business was negotiated. Two 19th and two early 20th century writers describe the location of the tavern as being on Pearl Street. Wakeman in his book the History and Reminiscences of Lower Wall Street and Vicinity described the tavern as bearing the name "Aunt Metje Wessells Tavern." When he wrote the description in 1914 he placed the tavern as having been at the current address of 73 Pearl Street. The four writers noted above tended to be fanciful in their descriptions of life in New Amsterdam, raising the question of historical accuracy. That said, the following is an excerpt from a published paper read to the New York Historical Society on June 2, 1874. The paper by James Watson Gerard is entitled The old streets of New York under the Dutch: "We may for a moment picture to ourselves an assemblage of the good people of New Amsterdam, gathered together at the widow Mietje Wessels' tavern on Pearl Street, near Broad, on the celebration of some festival day… The assemblage embraces all classes of citizens… from the snowy whitewashed walls of Madame Wessels' large assembly room, the fresh sand is arranged in gay festoons around the well scraped floor, carefully prepared by the widdow's daughters… while on the benches around the room sit many of the dignitaries and high officials of the settlement…" The description goes on to name numerous luminaries of the period who are in attendance. In addition to the tavern, she also owned rental property. Her personality was far from retiring. Between 1665 and 1675 she appeared in court as both a plaintiff and defendant a total of one hundred times. A colorful moment for her occurred on June 22, 1660 when she appeared as a defendant regarding payment of a debt. Her response to the magistrate's inquiry was: "…she will not listen to anything more about it, as her head is already too much bothered by it: and if the magistrates so decide, she will take the oath in a righteous case, saying it is paid, so sure as the light shines." After taking the oath she went on to say, "it was a gross malice on the part of van der Walle and the Magistrates to keep me waiting so long."3

The court records for January 13, 1657 the Schouts, Burgomasters, and Schepens of the City of New Amsterdam arrange for the stamping of barrels, and cans, weights, ells and skepels, in order to prevent all disputes arising therefrom and insuring equal justice; "Therefore their Worships, for the promotion thereof, have appointed and accepted, as Gauger and Assizer of this City, Warnaer Wessels, inhabitant of this City…". In that same year, he was named small burgher. On November 16, 1669 court records state: "It is this day Ordered that Warnaer Wessells shall be Constable of this Citty during the Mayority of Mr. Mayor Steenwyck…". In his capacity as Farmer of the Excise, Gauger and Assizer, and Constable, Warnaer appeared in court over three hundred times between 1653 and 1672. The impression of Warnaer from this first appearance suggests a man with an irascible personality. This is born out in later court records in which his quick temper did not always serve him well. The records also give us a glimpse of a man who was resourceful and entrepreneurial in nature. In addition to his municipal jobs, he bought and sold property and was a tapster.4 
Anecdote1655 Records indicate that circa 1655 Warnaer Wessels rented the house which he would later purchase. The 1660 survey depicted on the Costello map indicate that Warnaer was located in a house on block E Lot #3, which is on a cross street (possibly Winkel Street) between Brouwer Straat (Stone Street) and Brugh Straat (Bridge Street), facing the West India Company house and storage row.5 
Anecdote1663 Subsequent to the loss of New Amsterdam to the British on September 8, 1664, it appears that Warnaer and Elizabeth sailed for Holland. His last entry in the New Amsterdam court records for that year was November 8, 1664. Church records in Emmrich, Germany, a town on the Dutch border, record a baptism on December 17, 1664 of Anna Catharina, daughter of Warnaer Wessels and Anna Elisabeth Masschop. Why Warnaer took a pregnant wife to Holland at that time remains a mystery. To add to the mystery are two listings of a ship's passenger list. Each lists the same group of passengers. One dates the voyage as April 17, 1664, the other January 20,1664 (most likely a transcription error). The ship is The Sacred Heart with Captain Dirck Jacobsz De Vries. The passenger of interest is "Wander Wessels (Added on Dr.) Nota. His wife was coming out but died in Texel." Wander was among four passengers listed as "Came out at the cost of the company." If this is our Wander (Warnaer) Wessels then two facts are in dispute. The date of departure is not right. If the year is incorrect making the transit in 1665 rather than 1664 puts his departure date one day before Warnaer is in the court records, April 18, 1665, for the first time since November 8, 1664. The second possible error is naming his wife as having died on Texel. It is possible than daughter Anna Cathrina was mistaken for her mother Anna Elizabeth in the records. If this is our Warnaer, then this scenario fits with the New Amsterdam records. (The Island of Trexel was a gathering point for regional ships to bring travelers to board trans-atlantic vessels bound for America and other distant locals). The court records reflect an absence for Warnaer of a little less than six months, sufficient time for a quick round trip.6 
Anecdote19 April 1665 In court records for April 19, 1665, Warnaer is listed as living on High Street, with no specific address given.7 
AnecdoteApril 1672 In April of 1672 circumstances appear to have become grave for Warnaer. On the 5th of the month, Secretary Nicolaes Bayard lodged a complaint against Warnaer Wessels contending "that the sd. Wessels is a Conciderable summe of Monny indebted to the Towne as p.r. acc.t produced in Court. The sd. Wessels doth not only refuse to make payment thereof, but in Contempt of the Authority & in affront to the Magistrates did give very filthy speeches…". Warnaer's final appearance in court was in follow-up to the appearance of April 5th. On April 30, 1672 "The Court having heard ye Excuse & supplication of Waernaer Wessels, Concerning ye Seditious words spoken in affront & contempt to ye Magestrates; ye Court for severall Reasons & Considerations have remitted ye punishment which according to the merit of this fact ought to be Inflicted upon him & do Condemne him only to pay to ye use of the poore of this Citty a fine of 20 Gilders together with Costs. The fact that this reduced sentence comes at the end of his court involvement is likely not coincidental. It is difficult to judge form these notes what Warnaer might have been experiencing during this time of his life. It is possible his health was failing. While we do not know the date of his death, his widow remarried to Francois Rombouts on August 8, 1675.8 
Death*between 30 April 1672 and 8 August 1675Warnaer Wessells died between 30 April 1672 and 8 August 1675 at New Amsterdam, NY.9

Baptism8 April 1657He was baptized on 8 April 1657 at New Amsterdam, NY.1 
Anecdote*February 1683 When Gerardus left New Amsterdam is unknown. He would have been about eighteen years old when his mother remarried in 1675. Since he appears in Delaware and Maryland records as Chirurgeon, it is likely that he apprenticed in New York with his uncle Harmanus. Most likely at the urging of his uncle, Peter Alricks, he moved to Delaware where he became naturalized in February 1683.2 
Anecdote*5 May 1683 An unusual agreement found in the Sussex County, Delaware Land Records dated 5 May 1683 describes Doctor Gerrardus Vessell of Boston, New England, merchant forming seven year agreement with Reynier Vander Colen of New Castle, Pennsylvania, merchant. The agreement is for the combining of income and estates of both parties with the exception on one house owned by Gerrardus's wife in Boston and two houses owned by Reynier's wife in New Castle. Had he spent time in Boston, his footprint was faint since he shows up in no records of that era. The location of his residence was most likely Delaware, since Kent County, Delaware records indicate that he held the position of Justice of the Peace in Kent County on October 22, 1684. When and to whom he married we do not know. Inference might be drawn as to his wife's name based on the wax seal on his will. The impression was most likely made by the gold seal ring he left his son James in that will. The society for heraldic studies in England identified the impression in the wax as the crest of the arms of the Meinsma family. This was a family from the Freisland region of Holland. Protocol allows for the husband of a woman whose family has a coat of arms to use her arms. It does not permit the right to be passed on to future generations. If this is the origin of the crest on the seal of Gerardus's will, then it is likely that his wife's surname was Meinsma, though no record of this surname exists in the records for New Amsterdam, Delaware or Maryland.3 
Lived*16 September 1686He lived on 16 September 1686 at Langford's Bay, Kent Co, MD.4 
Land bought*16 September 1686He bought land on 16 September 1686 at Kent Co, MD. It was on this date that he purchased for 200 pounds lawful money a tract of land surveyed for 600 acres from Mary and John Hillyard.4 
Anecdote1694 The records show that Gerardus Wessels and his wife had a son James, daughters Elizabeth, and Ann. The earliest reference in the records to James occurred in the Maryland Assembly Proceedings September 20-October 18,1694 "An Act for the Naturalization of…Gerardus Wessells and James his son….5 
Anecdotebetween 1694 and 1709 Between 1694 and 1709 Gerardus was mentioned in the Maryland Probate records as receiving payments from the estates of the deceased eleven times. He served as an appraiser for estates twice and once administered an estate.6 
Land sold*12 August 1701He sold land on 12 August 1701 at Cecil Co, MD. It was on this date that "Gerrardus Wessills of the same county, chirurgeon, sold a parcel of land called Corrola at Worton Creek…contaning 150 acres" to Charles James. Again in 1702 Gerrardus Wessels of Cecil County, chirurgeon sold 100 acres of land called Cuckold's Hope in Cecil County on the south side of Fendalls Creek to Jacob Gibson of Newcastle County, Pennsylvania.7 
Anecdote1704 In 1704 Arnold Goodwin and Barbary Goodwin his wife of Cecil County, laborers, bind themselves as servants to Gerardius Wessels of the same county, chirurgeon, to serve from 10 October next for a full term of 4 years. Evidence of Gerardus' acceptance in the community can be inferred by the power of attorney granted him by the widow Jane Meekes who "makes her well beloved friend Dr. Gerrardus Wessells, surgeon of Cecil County, to be her attorney.8 
Will*21 January 1706/7Gerardus made a will on 21 January 1706/7 at Kent Co, MD. He leaves to James his "novo dwelling Plantation… one Seale gold Ring & one Silver Snuff box & also my wearing apparill." To his daughters Elizabeth and Ann he leaves land and additional gold rings to be divided between them. The only property that is named goes to Arano Goodwin composing 100 acres called Cockolos hope. It would appear that Cockolos hope refers to the same tract of land recorded as sold by Gerardus in 1702. While this is confusing, it is not germane to the significance of his mentioning the name of the property since doing so places Gerardus in Cecil County. Also worth noting is the naming of executors William and James Harris "in trust." Suggesting that James was not yet twenty one years of age.9 
Death*before 23 April 1709He died before 23 April 1709 at Kent Co, MD. It was on this date that his will was probated and James Wessells, having come of age, was th executor. Testamentary proceedings for 20 Feb 1709 suggest that conflict exists between he and his sister, Ann over the disposition of Gerardu's estate. On that date, William Latimer, Ann's second husband, acting on her behalf said in court that "James has wasted the estate and is about to depart the province." This resulted in an attachment for James to render the accounts.9

Anecdote*20 February 1709 It was on this date that testamentary proceedings suggest that conflict exists between James and his sister, Ann over the disposition of Gerardu's estate. On that date, William Latimer, Ann's second husband, acting on her behalf said in court that "James has wasted the estate and is about to depart the province." This resulted in an attachment for James to render the accounts.3
