REGISTER OF ANCESTORS 



REGISTER OF ANCESTORS 

The Society of the Daughters of Holland Dames is unique 
In that it accepts as members only women whose Ancestors 
were born in Holland and came to America before 1700. This 
limitation prevents its referring to the records of many illus- 
trious men who served loyally under the Dutch Crown in this 
country. 

The men sent out by the " Dutch West India Company " 
to the new Colony had offices awaiting them, while those who 
followed in their wake waited years to have their abilities 
recognized — indeed it was more often the second generation 
that produced the most notable men. 

To give its first " Record Book " a character in keeping with 
that of the Society, the Editors have used the original Dutch 
spelling of names of persons and places as far as possible, de- 
parting from it only when the orthography itself varied with 
the different periods of ancestral service. 

Of the provinces mentioned In the Register of Ancestors the 
following, enumerating them from north to south, are in Neder- 
land, or what we call Holland: Gronlngen, Friesland, Drcnthc, 
Overyssel ; North Holland, containing the cities of Amsterdam 
and Haarlem; South Holland, containing Leyden and Rotter- 
dam, Utrecht, Gelderland, Zeeland, North Brabant, LImburg; 
and the following are in what Is now Belgium, but was at one 
time a part of Holland : West Flanders, East Flanders. 

NIeuw Nederland comprised the territory between the Con- 
necticut River on the east and the South River (Delaware) on 
the south, and northward extended as far as the present city 
of Albany, which was an Indian Trading Post In 161-1. 

65 



The Dutch West India Company Charter bears the date 
1621. Fort Orange was built in 1623. 

Beverwyck and Rensselaerswyck were so called from their 
early settlement in 1637 until 1664, when the English took 
possession and named the united settlements New Albany. The 
city received its charter in 1686. When the Dutch recaptured 
Nieuw Nederland, they renamed New York " Nieuw Orange," 
and the Fort, " Willem Hendrick." They also renamed New 
Albany " Willemstadt," and gave the name of " Swaanenburg " 
to Kingston. 

Esopus bore its Indian name until Governor Stuyvesant 
called it " Wildwyck " in 1661. When the English began their 
rule, all names were Anghcised and this hamlet assumed the 
name of Kingston, which it bears at the present time. 

On Long Island, Breuckelen was the original name of Brook- 
lyn (under the English rule, Brookland), Boswyck of East 
Brooklyn, Waelboght (Wallabout) of the district on the East 
River, Midwout of Flatbush, Middleburg of Newtown, Vlissingen 
of Flushing, Amersfoort of Flatlands, 's Gravesande of Graves- 
end, and Heemstead of Hempstead. 

The Colony on the Delaware was called Suydt Rivier. 
A word as to the significance of some of the Dutch titles of 
offices mentioned throughout these records may be of interest. 
A Schout was a Sheriff. 

A Schout-Fiscal discharged the duties of Sheriff and At- 
torney General. 

Burgemeesters and Schepens were city magistrates who suc- 
ceeded the " Nine Men " on the incorporation of Nieuw Amster- 
dam. 

Orphanmasters were officers appointed by the Burgemeesters 
and Schepens to guard the interests of orphans and minor 
children, and to administer their property. V. V. H.
