Bush Family


1-Hendrick Albertus Bosch Jr.(ter BUSH) a sword cutter, appears to be the origin of this family. He came to America in 1659 or 1661 with his two sons and second wife on the ship DE TROUW "FAITH" which left Leydon, Holland. His house was located on the north side of Pearl Street in New Amsterdam in 1665. His son Albert was granted a lot on November 19th 1863, opposite his father's, next east of Fraunces Tavern. All were members of the Dutch Reformed Church and all children were baptized there.

He married first Ann Marie Rembach daughter of Coenraad Jurrien Rembach and Catherina Pietedr (daughter of Pieter) Van Der Waert on April 06, 1643 in Leyden Holland. They were apparently German and Lutheran. In the register of marriages at city hall, in Leiden Holland the following is recorded:

"Hendrick Bosch, born in Randerhousen in Denmark, occupation Swaertveger ( Sword-cutter) momentarily living in the Houtsrraat, appears before the city council on the 6th of March, 1643, to announce his marriage to Anna Maria Rembach, born in Leiden, also living in the Houtstraat. The marriage took place on April 6, 1643."

Hendrick Bosch and Anna Marie had at least seven children born at Leiden. Only one, Albertus, born about 1644 reached maturity. Anna Marie must have died in 1656 because a registar of funerals indicates that the wife of Hendrick Bosch was buried in December of that year.
