My ancestor, Willem Jansz van Borckelloo, married Cornelia van Salee in Brooklyn, 1658. Your ancestor was my ancestor's first father-in-law, who was married to Grietje Reniers, the first prostitute of New Amsterdam. If you want a fictional treatment of these people in New Amsterdam, read The Drowning Room, by Michael Pye, unfortunately, not a book that sticks to the facts as closely as one would wish. There is a lot of factual information about van Salee in New Amsterdam in The Washington-McClain Ancestry, by Charles A. Hoppin, vol. 3.
