Thank you, Hans!
Unfortunately, there is still a small problem: since I need also table head
and table tail, and sometimes also vertical lines, I use \starttables.
With the following example, the first page begins a little bit lower and
overwrites the first footnote:

\setuplayout[height=8cm]

\starttext
\bgroup
\let\postponefootnotes\relax
\starttablehead
\HL
\NC command     \NC meaning     \NC\SR
\HL
\stoptablehead
\starttabletail
\HL
\stoptabletail
\starttables[|l|l|]
\NC \tex{NC}    \NC next column\footnote{first footnote}\NC\FR
\dorecurse{10}{\NC \tex{MR}     \NC middle row  \NC\MR}
\NC \tex{LR}    \NC last row\footnote{last footnote}\NC\LR
\stoptables
\egroup

\stoptext

I tried some negative \vskip in the beginning, but without success...

Greetings, Peter
