During the Revolutionary war John Vernon, a young English- 
man, came to this country and settled in Philadelphia. When 
Philadelphia was in possession of the British forces Vernon was 
"pressed" into the service of the EngUsh army, and being a 
capable teamster he was sent to Hempstead, L. I., from whence 
it was his duty to convey provisions to the English ships which 
lay at anchor near Lloyd's Neck, L. I. One dark night Vernon 
deserted and found a home with a Quaker family named Jack- 
son, of Syosset, L. I. After the war John Vernon married 
Letitia Pool, of Brooklyn, and began farming, and subse- 
quently purchased the farm in East Norwich where he lived 
the remainder of his life.

noon, about 4 o'clock, appeared before me, Derick Schelluyne, 
Notary Public, in the presence of the witness hereafter men-

in the village of Bowerych, and well known to us Notary, and 
witnesses ; the said Anneke Jans laying on her bed in a state of 
sickness, but perfectly sensible, and in full possession of her 
mental powers, and capable to testate; to which state of mind 
we can fully testify: the said Anneke Jans, considering the 
shortness of life, the certainty of death, and the uncertainty of 
the hour of time, she, the said Anneke Jans declared, after due 
consideration, without any persuasion, compulsion, or retraction. 


this present document to be her last will and testament, in 
manner following: First of all; recommending her immortal 
soul to the Almighty God, her Creator and Redeemer, and con- 
signing her body to Christian burial, and herewith revoking and 
annulling all prior testimony, dispositions of any kind whatever: 
And now proceeding anew, she declared to nominate, and in- 
stitute as her sole and universal heirs, her children; — viz. Sarah 
Roelofsen, wife of Hans Kierstead; Catrina Roelofsen, wife of 
Johanis Van Brough; also Jannelye, and Rachel Haitgers, the 
children of her deceased daughter, Fytge Roelofsen, during her 
life-time the wife of Peter Haitgers, representing together their 
mother's place ; also her son Jan Roelofsen ; and finally, William 
Cornelius, Jonas, and Peitre Bogardus ; and to them to bequeath 
all her real estate, chattels, credits, monies, gold, silver coined 
and uncoined, jewels, cloths, linen, woollen, household furniture, 
and all property whatsoever, without reserve, or restriction of 
any kind, to be disposed of after her decease, and divided by 
them in equal shares, to do with the same at their own will and 
pleasure, without any hindrance whatsoever: Provided, never- 
theless, with this express condition and restriction, that her four 
first-born children shall divide between them out of their 
property, the sum of looo gilders, to be paid to them out of the 
proceeds of a certain farm situated on Manhattan Island, bounded 
on the North River; and that before any other dividend takes 
place : and as three of these children at the time of their marriage 
received certain donations, and as Jan Roelofsen is yet un- 
married, he is to receive a bed, and a milch cow; and to Jonas 
and Peitre Bogardus, she gives a house and lot, situated to the 
westward of the house of her the Testatrix, in the village of 
Beverwick, going in length until the end of a bleaching spot ; 
and in breadth, up to the room of her the Testatrix's house- 
besides a bed to each of them, and a milch cow to each of them, 
the above to be an equivalent of what the married children have 
received. Finally, she the Testatrix gives to Roeloffe Kierstead, 
the child of her daughter Sarah, a silver mug ; to Annatre Van 
Brough (the child of her daughter Catrina) also a silver mug; 
and to Jannelye and Michael Haitgers (the children of her 
daughter Fytge) also a silver mug : all the above donations to be 


provided for out of the first monies received, and afterwards the 
remainder of the property to be divided and shared as aforesaid. 
The Testator declares this document to be her onl}^ true last will 
and testament, and desiring that after her decease it may super- 
sede all other testaments, codicils, donations, or an}^ other in- 
strument whatsoever; and in case an}- formalities may have 
been omitted, it is her will and desire that the same benefit may 
accrue as if they actually had been observed ; and she requested 
me, Notary Public, to make one, or more lawful instruments, 
in the usual form of this, her Testatrix's last will and desire.

Jan. 28, 1658, Nicholas was made a Great Burgher.

about the following year to New Amsterdam, where he married 
Catharine, dau. of Caspar Varleth, in 1657, and owned a house

"Jan. 26, 1654. Cornells van Tienhoven in quality as Schout 
of this City of New Amsterdam, appeared in Court and made an 
ex officio complaint of the illegal proceedings of the Court of 
Gravesend in setting up and affixing the bans of matrimony 
betwixt Johan Van Beeck and Maria Verleth, both of whom 
have their domicile in and about this City of New Amsterdam, 
and are not published, in accordance with correct practice of 
the ecclesiastical and civil order in this City, so that the afore- 
said proceedings greatly tend to the infringement on the good 
policy of our Fatherland and the privilege and jurisdiction of 
this City, and prepare a way, whereby hereafter some sons 
and daughters, unwilling to obey their parents and guardians, 
will, contrary to their wishes, secretly go and get married in 
such villages or elsewhere; he requests, that the Court give 
heed hereunto, and take such action as their Worships shall 
judge proper, to maintain jurisdiction and prevent unlawful 

"The Court referred the matter to the Honble Director 
General and Supreme Council of New Netherlands." 

Letter to the Court at Gravesend: 
" Kind Friends: 

"Whereas on this date the lo"" of Feb 1654. by petition pre- 
sented to our Court by Johannes van Beeck, he requests, that 
his bans with Maria Verleth may be entered and be properly 
proclaimed here, and we have understood, that the sam^e Jo- 
hannes van Beeck and Maria Verleth had previously to this made 
proclamation of their bans through your Court at Gravesend, 
which (under correction) is contrary to the style and laws of our 
Fatherland, it is our request to your Honorable Court, in case 
such a circumstance should hereafter occur, that we may be 
informed thereof in order to prevent on one side and the other 
all improprieties, which we on our part engage to do in like 


manner, especially as it is usual, according to the custom of our 
Fatherland, that every one shall have three publications at the 
place, where his domicile is, and then he may go and be married 
wherever he pleases : wherein we are and remain 

"Arent van Hatten. 

"By order of the Burgomasters and Schepens of the City of 
N. Amsterdam. 

"Jacob Kip, 

"Feb. i6, 1654. Caspar Verleth and Johannes Van Beeck 
appeared in Court, and prayed most earnestly, that disposal 
may be made of the petition and remonstrance concerning the 
marriage between Joh van Beeck and Maria Verleth, presented 
to the Burgomaster and Schepens. As the Bench is not com- 
plete, it is postponed until Thursday next, so as in the mean- 
time to notify the other gentlemen." 

"Feb. 19, 1654. Johannes Van Beeck appeared in Court 
and requested as before, that action may be had on his petition, 
offering furthermore in time and on occasion, if necessary, to 
affirm at all times under oath what he has stated in his petition 
respecting the private conversation with the Honorable Petrus 
Stuyvesant. Burgomaster and Schepens of this City having 
seen and examined the petition presented to our Court on the 
10"* and 16"' of Feb, regarding the bans of matrimony between 
Johannes Van Beeck and Maria Verleth, therefore it being noted 

"First. Who in the beginning instituted marriage; also, 
what the Apostle of the Gentiles teaches therein. 

"Secondly. The proper and attained ages of Johannes van 
Beeck and Mary a Verleth. 

"Thirdly. The consent of the father and mother on the 
daughter's side. 

"Fourthly. The distance and remoteness of places between 
this and our Fatherland, together with the difficulty between 
Holland and England. 

"Fifthly. The danger that in such circumstances, matters 
by long delay might come to be disclosed between these afore- 
said young people, which would bring disgrace on both families, 
as well on one side as on the other. 


" 'T is true that our Theologians say, and that correctly, that 
we must not tolerate or permit lesser sins, in order thereby to 
avoid greater ones. 

"Therefore we think (with due submission) that by a proper 
solemnization of marriage (for the Apostle to the Hebrews calls 
the marriage bed honorable) the lesser and greater sins are 

"Therefore the Burgomasters and Schepens of this City are 
of opinion, that the proper ecclesiastical proclamations of the 
aforesaid young people ought to be made at the earliest oppor- 
tunity to be followed afterwards by their marriage. 

"Done at the session aforesaid in the City Hall, New Am- 
sterdam, in New Netherlands this 19. Feb 1654." 

Signed by seven members of the Court.
