Volkert, son of Symon Volkertse, married Jannetje, daughter of Reyer Schermerhorn, in 1698. They had twelve children, seven of whom are mentioned in his will made August 4, 1733, and proved February 21, 1760. He died 12th August, 1733. He lived on the north corner of Ferry and State streets, on a lot received from his father, 120 ft. front, to which his father-in-law added about 60 ft. more on the west, as a bequest to his wife Jannetje.

This lot was divided into three equal shares and devised to his three sons, Symon, Hendricus and Johannes — to each a lot of about 60 ft. front. He also owned a lot on the south side of State street, east of the lot of the Young Men's Christian Association Building, which he devised to his wife.

In 1729, he had an interest in the mill-right, for which he paid a quit rent to the town of 30 boards. (207-2)
