His father Jan Rinckhout was a baker in Albany. (138-4) Jurrian was a freeholder here at an early date. In his will made Feb. 2, 1703, he spoke of his wife Maria Idessen, to whom letters of administration were issued March 30, 1704; — of his father, Jan, and several children. (138-5) He gave to his wife the use of his real and personal estate here and in New York during her lifetime, — his father to be maintained out of the estate; son Teunis to have the farm at Schenectady at a fair price; Ida when he comes of age "to have the farm, near New York as made over by his father-in-law Tennis Idesse.

After Jurrian's death his widow married John McIntyre, June 17, 1704, and the family was not afterwards mentioned in the records.
