According to the record of baptisms at the New Amsterdam Reformed Dutch Church, Wyntie, daughter of Pieter Stoutenburg and Aefje Van Tienhonven, was baptized at the General’s Bouwerij (farm) in 1662. The General was Peter Stuyvesant who was Director-General on behalf of the Dutch West India Company.
Pieter (Peter) Stoutenburg was born around 1613 in Amersfoort, Utrecht Province, Netherlands. No details of his early years are available and he was said to have arrived in New Amsterdam the same time as Governor Kieft, March 28, 1638 however, this is uncertain.
By reason of our descending from Pieter Van Stoutenburg and Aefje Van Tienhoven, we can get qualified as ancestors of the Presidents Roosevelt and Eleanor Roosevelt. Anyone of Engeltje Stoutenburg’s brothers or sister will be a collateral line.
Eleanor’s early life was quite sad. Eleanor’s parents had both died by the time she was ten. She was a shy, private girl who wasn’t attractive like her parents. When Franklin was struck with polio, she forced herself to change to help support his political ambitions.
