Among the oldest of my oddities, these are both sides of the same piece of paper.
The first, in Dutch, is a fragment of a patent granted by Pieter Stuyvesant to
Gillis Jansen.  The second, in Dutch, is a conveyance, 1667,  by Gillis Jans to
Theunis Hillebrants, of the patent on the verso, in the village of Amesfort.
Same side, in English, 16 June 1694, a conveyance:
at the west side of Cornelis Jans at the
west side 12 7/10 rodd at the east side 11 4/5 rodd
at the north? side 16/7 4/5 rodd by Hendrick Wyckoff,
Marrike Wyckoff his wife, xxxxxxxxx
Unto Dirck Jans Amentman? as appeared by a bill
of sale last ???? the date as above ????

Presumably the same piece of property.
Obviously, I could use a little help with this.
