Maria Egberts was born in February 1714. She was the daughter of Benjamin and Anna Visscher Egberts. She grew up in a merchant's home on Pearl Street. Traditional sources[1] tell us that she was known as "Polly."

In November 1742, she was twenty-eight when she married Jacob J. Lansing at the Albany Dutch church. By 1759, the marriage had produced nine children - the last born when Maria was forty-five-years old.

These Lansings lived in the North End in a landmark house on Market Street from where Jacob was a well-known silversmith. In 1762, she was left 1/6 of the remaining estate of Jacob Visscher - the widower of her childless aunt.

Maria Egberts Lansing died in March 1771. She had lived for fifty-seven years. She did not live to see the outstanding marriages of her three daughters. Her husband, however, survived until 1791.
