Cornelis Teunisse Bos, it was said, came to Beverwyck*, USA, in 1631 as hind to Cornelis Maase Van Buren. His wife was Maritie Thomase Mingael who, after his death in 1666, married Jurriaen Janse Groenwout. Around that time they had one daughter, Wyntie, living.

The next year he was again arriagned for a similar offence against William Teller.
