Ghysbert was his father's only son, and so the only descendant to carry on the Bogart surname to further generations.

Born in Brooklyn, he moved over to Staten Island about1689 and settled at Fresh Kills, where he purchased 250 acres of land and where his seven children were born.

By 1699, when his father died, Ghysbert had bought or otherwise obtained most of his property at Wallabout, Bushwyck, Brooklyn Village. He removed to the Flatlands, where he served as deacon in the Dutch Reformed Church starting in 1706.

Ghysbert served as the quartermaster to the cavalry troop of Kings County, a regiment of 250 men under Colonel Stephen van Cortlandt. In 1711 he was a member of the Brooklyn militia; later he became a captain.

He died sometime after 1732, when he was named administrator of the estate of his son Cornelius.
