Gerrit, the youngest son of Evert (1620-ca. 1702) and Hendrickje (Simons) Duyckinck, was baptized into the Dutch Church in New Amsterdam on April 11, 1660. As early as 1679 he was referred to as "Schilder" (painter), and in 1698/9 he is called a "Limner" ("The Burghers of New Amsterdam, 1675-1866," 1885, P. 73).
