The materials of which this book is composed were 
gathered daring the last few years while engaged in tracing 
the ancestry of my children. In the course of that undertak- 
ing I proved the descent of my grandmother, Elizabeth 
Margaret Cayler, from Hendrick Cnyler, the founder of 
the Cnyler family in America, and in doing this I dis- 
covered so mnch new and hitherto nnpnblished matter 
concerning the early Caylers in Holland and America that I 
determined to make a book of it. 

Mnch remains to be done to make the history of the 
family in anyway complete, bnt I trust that, even in its im- 
perfect form, this work will prove of some value and interest 
to the numerous Cuyler descendants. 

It is a noteworthy fact that only one man of the name 
ever emigrated to America, Hendrick Cuyler, the founder, 
and that every Cuyler in this country and in England cor- 
rectly claims descent from him and is entitled to bear or 
quarter his armorial device. 

The name Cuyler is of great antiquity, dating back 
authentically to 1387, an unusual thing in the history of 
Dutch surnames, and the coat-of-arms is found as early as 
1602 in use as an official seal. The unbroken records show 
that for five hundred years the Cuylers played an important 
and honorable part in every generation, and a study of a 
genealogical chart giving the descendants of Hendrick 
Cuyler and his wife, Annetje Schepmoes, shows that there is 
scarcely a Dutch family of consequence in New York who 
are not related to them by consanguinity or affinity. 

I wish to acknowledge my indebtedness to Mr. Panl J. 
Kapteyn, archivist of Amsterdam, for his painstaking re- 
searches in Holland, to Mr. Teleman Cnyler for his generous 
contribution of material relating to the southern branch 
of the family, and to Mr. Alexander James Wohlhagen of 
The New York Historical Society for his intelligent and 
careful assistance in the compilation of this book.

The EncyhptBdia Britannica says: *' The best if not the only 
safe evidence for the origin of armorial bearings is that afforded 
by seals." 

The earliest record of the coat-of-arms is in 1502 when 
" Thyman Koylert/' Alderman of Hasselt, used it as his official 
seal. The armorial device of that seal is identical with the 
Cuyler coat-of-arms which is taken from impressions of Hendrick 
Cuyler*s own seal with which his wife Annetje Shepmoes Cuyler 
sealed her will. He mentions the seal in his will March 21, 1690, 
as follows: '* My youngest son Henry shall have my seal/* and 
his wife making her will July 3, 1702, says that all the provisions 
of her husband's will shall be carried out. She sealed her will 
with two clear impressions of his seal which she had in her 
keeping for their son Henry. There is no motto on the im- 
pressionSy but the motto belonging to the similar Cuyler arms 
in Holland is: 

" Ik vertrouwt op Gott niet op Pyien." 
(I trust in God not in arrows.) 

In all probability the original bearer of this name was an 
arbalister or crossbowman, and in course of time he or his 
descendants, being empowered or assuming the right to bear 
arms, placed upon their shield a quarrel or cross-bow bolt (keil in 
old German). The bolt or short arrow shot from the arbalist or 
cross-bow (as distinguished from the shaft or long arrow shot 
from the long bow) was in general use throughout Europe during 
the middle ages, and is first mentioned in a manuscript of the 
nth century. The name Cuyler, Keiler or Keyler, as it was 
spelled in 153a, may be considered as equivalent to our English 
surname Archer or Bowman. 

Blazoning of the seal on the will: 

The shield bears a bolt or quarrel in pale with the point 
upwards between the letters H. C. The crest is three quarrels, 
the centre in pale, the two others pilewise all points upward on a 


helmet barred affront^. There is a mantling of the debased 17th 
century type. 

Blazoning of the Coat-of-Arms of Cuylaert of Amsterdam:

tive or Rynier would not have inherited from him.) 50 caroli guil- 
ders of his mother's property when of age. 100 Golden guilders for 
rent owed by the hospital. The guardians of Arentgen, daugh- 
ter of Engbert Koylert owe him 59 golden gulden for his share in 
the house on the Veerstege (now sold)." "This money has been 
received by Marrichien and her son-in-law Jurrien Vellebier, and 
they have satisfied Reyner." "Thilman Wichers holds for Rey- 
ner Koylert a hat band with gilt letters and buckles, a silver 
mug, a silver rapier handle, 2 dozen silver buttons and 2 square 
purses." March 24, 1597, "Reynier has received this silverware 
from Thilman Wichers' sister in the presence of Jan Adriaens ten 
Oever and Wolter Claes Rey vers, and has receipted for it." Item 
about some clothing and one more silver spoon still in Marrien 
Isebrants' possession. "The goods of Reynier and his sister hav- 
ing been divided, the guardians consent that Marrien Isebrants, 
the mother, shall have the rents till Reynier is of age, but she 
must support him till then." (He was about 18.) This inventory 
was signed March 34, 1597, before the Aldermen Willem Egbers 
and Harmen Gheryts. March 11, 1600, Jan Adriensz ten Oever 
proposes to audit the accounts of this inventory as soon as Ise- 
brant Reyners shall return from Amsterdam. (Reyner is now of 
age.) This Isebrant Reyners could have been a first cousin of 
Reyner Koylerts, the son of his mother's brother. He could not 
have been an uncle as he would then have been called Isebrant 
Isebrants; nor the grandfather Ysebrant Reyniers, as the latter 
died about 1578, at the time of, or shortly after Reyner Koilert's 
birth. (Vol. 3202, folio 23.) July 2, 1604, testimony of Lysbet 
Jans Tonslegers concerning a grave she is to be buried in beside 
her husband's body, "the white tombstone by the middle gate."

ing a legal certificate and marriage articles between Reyner 
Koilert, Claesien Jans and Jan Henrix Koopman, the parents of 
Reynier*8 wife. Jan Henrix is now deceased. Claesien Jans is 
also called Reyner's "aunt." She might have been the wife of 
one of his mother's brothers or of his deceased uncle, Engbert 
Koilert, before she married Koopman; or she could have been 
Claesien Jans, a daughter of Jan Claes van Marckell, possibly sis- 
ter of Reynier's aunt, Grieten Jans van Marckell and called 
"aunt" by courtesy. (She was not a Cuyler or an Isebrant.) The

42. Hendrick Cuyler born in Hasselt, emigrated to America. 
He was a tailor by trade. He married about 1660, Anna Schep- 
moes. Riker's Harlem (1904), p. 364, says: "Hendrik Cuyler 
married Anna Schepmoes at New Amsterdam and about 1664 
went to Albany, where he acquired property. He eventually re- 
turned to New York, and with his wife united with the church by 
letter, November 29, 1688. He died soon after, in 1690." In 1664, 
he bought a lot of land on the east side of North Pearl Street, 
Albany, near State Street. In 1669 he was in New York, for he 
stood sponsor with Lysbeth Pieters, his wife's aunt, in that year 
for the child of Hendrick Aertzen and Aeltie Claes. (D. C. B. 

* Tailor. 

t Between the years 1637 and 1648 the baptismal register was lost. At the 
time of his marriage Reynier deposed that he was 25 years of age. He was 
therefore born in 1642. 



The Earliest Cuylers in Holland and America 13 

Vol. I, p. 95.) In 1675 he made his brother, Reynier Cuyler, 
''cnoopemaecker tot Amsterdam" (button maker of Amsterdam) 
his attorney to receive certain property of Pieter Nicholas 
Gouvemeur, then residing in Amsterdam, Holland. In 1677 
Hendrick Cnyler and his wife were in Amsterdam, Holland, 
where on November 4, they stood sponsors for the child of 
his brother, Reynier Cnyler, and Petronella Wouters, his wife. 
In 1680 he owned a lot on the south side of State Street, 
''near ye fort," in Albany, which after his death passed into 
the possession of his son-in-law, Peter van Brugh. The latter 
applied for permission to build a home upon the said land. 
On January 2, 1680, in Albany, Nicholas de Meyer made a 
contract as agent for Hendrick Cuyler of Albany, with Jan 
Nagel Jan Dyckman, Arent Bussing, Adolph Meyer and Jan 
Delamater to "hew timber for Hendrick Cuyler's house, to be de- 
livered in the ensuing May; part to be delivered at the water side 
and part in New York at the Burgher's Path for which they were 
to receive 1300 guilders and J4 ancker of rum, to wit }i in silver 
money or sewant, }i in good winter wheat, and yi in goods at 
such price as he (de Meyer) sells at his store for currant sewant." 
It would seem from this that he built his house in New York and 
brought the timber down the Hudson. In 1683 he and his 
wife were members of the church of Jesus Christ, Albany, N. Y. 
On October 14, 1685, he was commissioned Lieutenant of a Foot 
Company for the county of Albany, of which John Wendall was 
Captain. On October 20, 1685, he was commissioned a Justice 
for the town and county of Albany. On August 16, 1686, he was 
licensed to purchase a certain piece of land called Adorguta, near 
to Clausgrowen hook, in the neighborhood of Schenectady, con- 
taining about 30 acres of lowland and 50 acres of upland. On 
September i, 1686, he petitioned for a license to purchase a piece 
of land near Schenectady. A patent for land above Schenectady 
was granted to him on March 30, 1687. License to purchase land 
of the Indians at Long Reach, below Bsopus, was granted May 
4, 1687. He was commissioned Major of all the Foot Companies 
in the city and county of New York on December 16, 1689, at the 
time of the French and Indian War. Documents Relating to the 
Colonial History of New York^ Vol. 3, has the following mentions 
of Hendrick Cuyler: Alderman of Albany 1687; Lieut, of Capt. 
DePeyster's company; complains of Capt. Nicholson in 1689; de- 

14 The Earliest Cuylers in Holland and America 

livers Ft. James to the Leislerians 1689; Captain of the Fort 1689; 
his affidavit transmitted to England 1689; substance of his affida- 
vit; mentioned as Major in 1689; one of Leisler's Council 1689; 
drags Mr. Tudor to the Fort. 

His will in low Dutch in his own handwriting is dated March 
21, 1690. It was translated by Abraham Gouvemeur September 7, 
1690. His wife took out Letters of Administration on it Novem- 
ber 17, 1690. It was witnessed by Capt. Gerrit Duyckinck and 
Ensign Pieter de Mill. He named his children in the order given 
below; directs that "his seal, his gold ring and one silver spoon 
shall be given to his youngest son Henry/' that the underaged 
children shall be taught to read and write; and he appoints as 
guardians to his children his brothers-in-law, John van Giesen, 
Johannes de Wandelaer and Gerrit Hardenberg. He was dead 
on May i, 1690, for on that date his widow Anna appeared in 
Albany in a law suit. His will is filed in the Surrogate's 
Office, City and County of New York. Liber 14 A, p. 124. 

Annetje Schepmoes, his wife, was baptised in the New York 
Dutch Church February 16, 1642, witnesses: Marjrn Andriaeszen, 
Lysbeth Thys. She was the daughter of Jan Janse Schepmoes 
and Sarah Pieters. The Register of BetrothtnentSy Archives of 
Amsterdam has the following: "December 27, 163 1, appeared 
(before the the commissaries of the marriage matters) Jan Jansz 
Schepmoes of Delft, seafaring man, 26 years of age, orphan, 
residing in the Brouwerstraat and Saara Pieters of Hoorn, 22 years 
of age, orphan, living in the Moriaansteegje, assisted by her 
sister Lysbeth Pieters. Requesting their three proclamations 
in the church," etc. On May 18, 1643, a grant of land was made 
by the West India Co. to Jan Janse Schepmoes; it was near Fort 
Amsterdam. When Sara Pieters remarried she mortgaged this 
land and the house on it, describing it as: *'The house and lot 
at New Amsterdam, south of Fort Amsterdam, in the Parel 
straat, occupied by Jacob Strycker." She also set aside 800 
carolas guilders for her children, 100 guilders for each child. 
Jan Janse Schepmoes died in New Amsterdam in January, 
1656, and on October 7th of the same year his widow married 
Willem Cook, at which time Pieter Cornelius Van Veen and 
Isaac Greveraat were appointed guardians of her children as 
follows — Anna, Abraham, Aeltje, Dirck, Orseltie, Sara, Jaepie 
and Willem.

In the autumn of 1768, just after his father's death, he emi- 
grated on account of his health, to Savannah, Georgia, and 
settled there. He died Sept. 29, 1772, of dropsy, and was 
buried in the Old Burying Ground (now Colonial Park), 
Savannah, where his tombstone now stands, inscribed as follows: 

" In Memory of 

Teleman Cuyler 

Who departed this 

Life September the 

29, A.D. 1772 in the 

42 year of his age. 

On Nov. 13, 1772, John Somerville was named administrator 
of his estate by Governor James Habersham, and the inventory 
and appraisement of the same was £21$^ 10 sh. Debts were 
owed him to the amount of ;^2i3, 11 sh., 10^ pence. Alexander 
Phoenix owing him j£^ 15 sh., 6 pence. Teleman Cuyler is 
called a mariner and captain in these papers. He married 
Jeanne Latouche. She was bom in New York City, July 14, 
1738, and was baptized on the 30th of the same month in the 
Bglise du Saint Esprit; sponsors: Jacques Fauvi&res and Jane 
Haynes. Her descent is as follows: Pierre Latouche and Jeanne 
Bardin of Villeneuve in Agenois de Guyenne, had Isaac, a Hugue- 
not refugee in England, who married Esther Guillemetton, 
daughter of Estienne Guillemetton of Charente, and Jeanne 
Goyon. Their son Jdrdmie was baptized at the French Church 
in Bristol England, June 9, 1694, and was brought to America 
by his parents who settled near New Rochelle, N. Y. He mar- 
ried Jeanne, daughter of Simon Soumain (a goldsmith) and 
Jeanne Piaud, "la veuve Piaud," who fled from St. Sauveur, 
La Rochelle, to England, in 1681. Their daughter was Jeanne 
Latouche. Jeremie Latouche was a prominent merchant in 
New York City; he exported wheat, was on the grand jury and 
owned much land, some of it (now Nos. 48, 50 and 52 Pine street) 
he bought from Thomas Bayeux and built upon, in 1745. He 
died in 1746 and his will dated Sept. 13, 1742, was proved Aug. 5, 
1746. He divided his property between his son Isaac and his 
daughter Jeanne, who subsequently bought her brother's half; 
here she lived with her husband till they moved to Savannah. 

30 The Earliest Cuylers in Holland and America 

She is said to have been a very extraordinary woman, a gresit 
beauty and finely educated and accomplished for those days. 
She was a talented musician and spoke several languages. A 
family tradition describes her as tall with a white skin and dark 
eyes, hair that touched her knees, small hands and feet, an im- 
perious temper, great vivacity and a keen wit. She was a friend 
of Lafayette and some of his visiting cards, his letters and 
presents to her are still preserved by the family. In local history 
she was known as *^the patriotic Mrs. Cuyler of Georgia," and 
her name has been compared to Nancy Hart's. Meetings were 
held by the patriots at the Cuyler house on the comer of Bull 
and Broughton streets in Savannah, and at one of these the 
resolution was passed which afterward formed the basis of the 
action of the Provincial Congress in declaring Georgia's ad- 
herence to the revolting colonies and her purpose to join with 
them in armed resistance to the authority of the English crown. 
At the fall of Savannah Jeanne Cuyler was taken to Charleston 
under an escort of Continental troops, as Sir James Wright, the 
English Governor, had offered a reward for her capture and 
delivery to the British authorities, and after Charleston had 
surrendered the Commissary General caused her to be trans- 
ported to Philadelphia, where her expenses were paid by the 
Commonwealth of Georgia in recognition of her valuable services 
to the patriots' cause. She lived to an old age in the family of 
her brother-in-law, Henry Cuyler, Jr., in or near Amboy, New 
Jersey, and died in September, 1799, and was bur. ''Sept. 22 or 
23" in the Middle Dutch Church, N. Y. City. Children:

The portraits of Col. Abraham Cuyler and his wife are now 
in the possession of Jacob Glen Cuyler of South Africa. On the 
back of the portraits is an inscription written by his son Jacob 
Glen Cuyler, which is as follows: 

88 Thb Earliest Cuylbrs in Holland and America 

''The portraits within this frame of the late Col. Abraham 
Cuyler, formerly Mayor of the City of Albany, Province of 
New York, N. America, and Mrs. Cuyler, were sketched by the 
unfortunate Major John Andr^ in 1776, at the time a prisoner 
at Albany to the Americans. Col. Cuyler was shortly after, for 
his attachment to and support of the British against the American 
cause, made prisoner and sent to Hartford in Connecticut— 
whence he made his escape and Joined the British Army under 
the Command of Sir W. Howe at New York; when he was 
declared an outlaw and his property confiscated and sold by 
the Americans. 

When Greneral Burgoyne surrendered at Saratoga, 30 miles 
above Albany, in Oct., 1777, Mrs. Cuyler and her four children, 
of whom the writer was the youngest and an infant in his 
mother's arms, proceeded in an open boat down the Hudson 
River, 160 miles to New York to join her husband. 

The subsequent fate of the hapless Andr^-is but too well 
known. These pictures were at the time of Mrs. Cuyler's flight 
from Albany left with her elder brother, Mr. John Glen of 
Schenectady, where they remained till his death some 40 years 
after — ^when Mrs. E. Holt came into possession of them and sent 
them to her brother at the Cape of Good Hope.

that the Cuyler Sugar House was used by the British soldiers as 
a prison during the Revolutionary War, but proof of this state- 
ment is lacking.

At the outbreak of the Revolution Henry Cuyler was a 
Loyalist and removed to New Jersey where in July, 1776, he 
was ordered to remove from his house in Newark, ' but in 
consideration of his serious sickness,' the Provincial Congress 
directed him to give bond with security in ;^iooo for the faith- 
ful observance of his parole. He never recovered from this 
sickness, for he left a will dated July 17, 1776, at Newark, which 
was proved Aug. 28, 1777, at New York. This will was found 
among the unrecorded wills in the N. Y. Surrogate's Ofl&ce, and 
an abstract is published in the Collections of the N. Y. Historical 
Society for 1902, page 197. After the Revolution his property 
was confiscated. 

On July 24, 1780, Gaine's Mercury contained the following: 

"To be sold a public vendue, on Monday, the 14*** day of 
August next, 

The Sugar House, 

With all the utensils and out houses, belonging to the estate of 
the late Henry Cuyler, deceased, situate in the north ward of 
this city. An inventory of the utensils to be seen at H. Gaine's." 

On Aug. 14, 1780, the Mercury had the following: 

"The Sale of Mr. Cuyler's Sugar House, is postponed until 
Thursday, the 17*** inst., when the Vendue will begin at XI o'clock 
in the Morning on the premises. 

• . • The Creditors of Henry Cuyler the Elder and younger,

Margaret Elizabeth Clarendon was his only child and an 
heiress for her day, known as " Pretty Peggy Clarendon." She 
was a toast in fact in her native town on account of her beauty 
and her portrait is still extant. 

On May i, 1782, Smith Clarendon conveyed to Henry Keall 
and William Stephens, trustees for Margaret Clarendon, his 
wife, two lots in Savannah, Ga., for life, then to Margaret Eliza- 
beth, their daughter. In 1784 Smith Clarendon is called Inn- 
keeper of Savannah in a suit brought by John McKenzie against 
Smith Clarendon over an order drawn by one John Davies and 
accepted for payment by Smith Clarendon. Clarendon's name 
was on the bill of attainder though subsequently erased. Mar- 
gherita Meek Clarendon was buried in Laurel Grove Cemetery.
