Especially due to the recent activity around the Hendrick I. Lott house of late, I have scanned several actual documents concerning Hendrick and his surrounding family.  As time permits, I will be adding to the commentary.


This is a complaint written to Johannes Lott b. 5/11/1692, Rem Remsen (not sure who he married), Andries Onderdonck, Jr. (husband of Gertrude Lott b. 5/4/1688), Hendrick Lott (not sure which one), and Johannes Schenck (husband of Maria Lott b. 10/31/1693), written by Dirck Hooglandt.  This Johannes Lott is the Grandfather of Hendrick I. Lott.
