THE DE WITT FAMILY, OF ULSTER COUNTY. NEW YORK. 



13^87^8 



i. The first mention in this country, of Tjfrck Claessen De Witt, the 
ancestor of the De Win family,* is found in the " Trouw Boeck " or Regis- 
ter of Marriages of the Reformed (Collegiate) Dutch Church, of New York 
City, where it is recorded that on the 24th day of April, 1656, " Tjerck 
Claessen De Witt var Grootholdt en Zunderlandt," married " Barbara 
Andriessen van Amsterdam." Zunderlandt has not been definitely located, 
but it is probably Sateriand, a district of Westphalia, on the southern bor- 
der of East FrieslandL 

Whether or not a=y of his family emigrated to America with him has 
not been ascertained, "rut it is probable that they did, for in 1662 his sister 
Emmerentie De Witt married Martinus Hoffman, at New Amsterdam, and 
in 1699 his brother Jaa Claessen De Witt died unmarried at Kingston. 

For a short time after his marriage he lived in New York (his first 
child, Andries, was bom there), but in the spring of 1657 he removed to 
Albany, where he had purchased a house and lot 

In September, 1660, he exchanged his Albany property with Madame 
de Hutter, for land in Wiltwyck (now Kingston), " possession to be given. 
May I, 1661.". He probably took possession at that time, as in Septem- 
ber, 1661, he appears as plaintiff in an action at law before the Schepens 
Court of Wiltwyck, znd on October nth the same court ordered the 
Sheriff (Roeleff Swarmmt) to pay him three and a half schepels of wheat 
in eight days aDd sevea more in one month. 

■ From this time ntdl his death, he resided in Kingston and Hurley, and 
some of the land whica he purchased is still in the hands of his descendants. 

That he was a maa of considerable means is shown by the fact that in 
.1661 he was taxed 125 guilders (about $50) to pay for. building a church 
in Esopus. ... .'•„.--; 

"In 1662 he owned No. 28 of the "new lots." 

June 7, 1663, when Kingston and Hurley -were almost entirely de- 
stroyed by the Indiars, his eldest daughter, Taatje, was taken prisoner, but 
was soon rescued. Sie afterward married Captain Matthys Matthyssen. 

" During the wirter of 1664 there was much sickness in Esopus 
[Kingston]. Fever took hold of the people and prostrated half the place. 
But this did not prevent men from gathering their money. Roeloff Swart- 
wout sold a horse to Tjerck Claessen De Witt, which was taken to the tat- 
ter's barn, but the ex-sh,eriff, becoming dissatisfied, took it away secretly. 

• Tjerclc Claes=eH De Win«js tbe son, as the name would indicate, of Claes or Nicholas De Wilt, and. 
judging rpom the custom ptevuent at that time of naming children alter grandparents, it is probable that 
his mother's firM name ns Tsaz^. tor his eldest daughter bears that name, as does also a daughter of 
Xummerenbe Hoffman, his sjctt—, and furthermore be had a sister nam^^ Taarje, bring in Holland. 



He was sued for the property." [From unpublished" History of Ulster 
County."] 

June 25, 1672, Governor Lovelace deeded him "a parcel of b^ish-land, 
together with a house, lot, orchard, and calves' pasture, lying near Kings- 
ton, in Esopus." 

October 8, 1677, Governor Andros deeded him a piece of woodland, 
containing about fifty acres, at Kingston in Esopus, "to y c west of y c towne." 
v February n, 1679, he was one of the signers of a renewal of the Nichols 
treaty with the Esopus Indians. 

In 1684 he signed "the humble petition of the inhabitants of Esopus 
in the County of Ulster," praying that there might be " liberty by char- 
ter to this county to choose our owne othcers to every towne court by 
the major vote of the freeholders." This petition was addressed to Col. 
Thomas Dongan, Governor-General. It greatly offended the authorities, 
and the signers were arrested and fined. Thus early in the history of the 
country arose the questions of local self-government and the right of suf- 
frage. They were easily answered then. 

February 13, 1685, one hundred and eighty-nine acres of land were 
conveyed to De Witt by the Trustees of Kingston. 

June 6, 1685, he claimed two hundred and ninety acres of land lying 
upon the north side of Rondout Kill, and known by the name of " Moni- 
boccus" (in the town of Rochester) in Ulster County. This was laid out 
for him by Phillip Welles, surveyor, and was granted to him by patent, 
May 14, 1694. . 

March 4, 1689, he was chosen one of the magistrates of Ulster County, 
having previously held other offices. 

Tjerck Claessen De Witt died at Kingston, February 17, 1700. By his 
will, which bears date the 4th day of March, 1698, and which is written in 
the Dutch language, he leaves his property to his wife for life ; at her death 
one-half to go to his oldest son, Andries, and one-half to his youngest son, 
Tjerck, in trust, " provided that the same shall be appraised by impartial 
persons on oath," and divided into twelve equal shares, one share to be 
given to each of his children, their heirs or assigns. In addition to the 
equal share he gave to Andries some lands at Koksinck and Kleine Esopus, 
to Jan and Jacob each five hundred bushels of wheat, and to Lucas the one- 
half of a sloop which he had built the year previous. The legacy to his 
daughter Rachel is subject to the condition " that my said daughter's share 
shall be decreased one hundred pounds for the benefit of my heirs, which 
is what my daughter's husband, Cornelius Bogardus, owes me for the one- 
eighth of a brigantine, desiring, however, that the child of the said Bo- 
gardus, named Barbara, shall receive, out of the aforesaid hundred pounds, 
fifty 'pieces of eight." The legacy to his daughter Jannetie, the wife of Cor- 
nelius Swits, is " with these conditions, that if my aforesaid daughter shall 
die without leaving any children, then all the said part shall be the prop- 
erty of my heirs, to be equally divided between them." 

His wife Barbara is appointed executrix, and the witnesses are Jacob 
Rutsen, Abraham La Meter, and William De Meyer. The will is recorded 
in the Ulster County Clerk's Office at Kingston, in Book AA of Deeds, p. 
252, and in the New York Surrogate's Office, Lib. 7 of Wills, p. 601. The 
translation from which the above is taken was kmdly furnished bv George 
G. De Wi'j, Esq., of New York City. 

Barbara Andriessen De Witt died on July 6, 17 14, and afty her death.
