He was probably a brother of Philip and is first mentioned as a member of the church in 1701.

On the 10th March, 1706/7, the trustees of Schenectady conveyed to "Jan Philipse, bachelor, a lot of ground in Schenectady, on the south side of the street that leads by the church [State street], having to the east six feet of ground adjoining to the lot of Cornelis Slingerland, south the town stockades, west ye vacant ground belonging to the town, — breadth on the street three rods and four feet [40 feet], — behind the same, depth on east and west sides two nods and four feet [28 feet], Rynland measure." (137-2) This lot was on the south-west corner of State street and Water street alley, — in 1713, this lot then having a depth of fifty feet, was conveyed by Arent Bratt, brewer, who lived opposite, to Hendrick Vrooman, Jr., weaver, who, in 1721 mortgaged it to Philip Livingston, merchant of Albany.
