ate Hist, ricai Socle c.\
JbLAVrN'G, while engaged in gathering materials for
a genealogy of the Bergen family, procured much
information relating to others of the early settlers of
Long Island, at the request of some members of the
Van Brunt family, I have been induced to put in
shape and prepare for publication a genealogy of said
family. There are gaps in the work, which from the
lack of information and time I am unable to fill, branches
of the family having removed and become scattered
over the middle and western states of this Union,
consequently difficult of access. It is to be hoped that
this effort of mine will induce some one or more of
the members of the family to take an interest in the
matter, and make more full and complete what I
have begun. As time progresses, old papers and records
by accidental and other causes are destroyed and lost —
knowledge which our ancestors possessed passes away;
and this will continue to be the case in the future,
unless the present generation make efforts to prevent
it by gathering up and recording this knowledge, and
by multiplying their records for the information and
benefit of posterity. The contents of these pages are
derived from family and church records, old papers,
tomb-stones, public documents, and the early history
of the country. They are intended to be accurate
and reliable; but in a work of this kind errors are
apt to creep in, and, no doubt have crept in, in spite
of all efforts to prevent it. Their imperfection is there-
fore admitted, and forgiveness and pardon asked for all
unintentional errors and omissions.
To the members of the family and others who have
kindly allowed the examination of their records and^
papers, and afforded me the information they could
gather or possessed, I would return my sincere thanks.
As a general thing the genealogy of the family is in-
tended to be carried out to the year 1862, to which date
researches were made.

THE VAN BRUNT FAMILY.
Rutgers JOESTEI^ van brunt, or Hutger the
son of Joosi or George, the common ancestor of the Van
Brunt family in this country, emigrated from the Nether-
lands in 1653, and was among the first settlers in New
Utrecht, on Long Island in the present state of New
York, in 1657. From whence the name is derived is
involved in uncertainty, there being no place in the
Netherlands named Brunt, the nearest approach being
"Bruntinge, a hamlet in the province of Drenthe, three-
fourths of an hour's travel south of Westerbork, contain-
ing seven houses and fifty inhabitants." The Honorable
H. C. Murphy, while U. S. Minister at the Hague, on
diligent inquiry and examination of the directories of the
principal cities, failed to find a single individual of the
name in the country. He, however, obtained a copy of an
arithmetic published by J. Brunt, of which five editions
had been issued, the title of the third being " continua-
tion of the rudiments of arithmetic, composed in ques-
tions and answers for the use of schools, by Jan Brunts in
his lifetime schoolmaster at Leyden, by M. & S. Bevel,
master in the liberal arts, and doctor in philosophy,'
printed in 1824 at Leyden.'' From Jan Brunt not having
the prefix of Van to his name, it may be inferred that
Brunt is a proper surname, and not derived from the
place from which Rutger Joesten emigrated.
RuTGER Joesten was an agriculturist, holding large
tracts of land, and one of the most influential citizens of
the newly begun village of New Utrecht where he con-
tinued to reside until his death which occurred prior to
2 GENEALOGY OF THE
1713, the exact date not having been ascertained. He died
intestate leaving his grandson Nicholas ^ his heir-at-law.
Dec. 19th, 1721, letters of administration were granted by
Governor Burnet on his personal estate, to Joost,^ his son,
Nicholas^ being dead and Cornelius' having renounced
his right. By a deed dated Aug. 8th, 1717, recorded in
the office of the register of Kings county in liber D, page
153, of Conveyances, it appears that at this date a division
was made of Rutger Joesten's real estate. On the settle-
ment of the village of New Utrecht, Rutger Joesten
was allotted a double lot lying on the east side of land of
Thomas Jansen, and on the west side of Jan Gerritse,
being in breadth 48 rods, and in length 600 rods, contain-
ing 48 morgen (about 100 acres) ; also a double house or
building lot in the village, lying east of the lot of Nica-
sius de Sille, and west of Cornells Beeckman, in breadth
20 I'ods, in length 30 rods, on which he erected his dwell-
ing house, one of the first three built in the village.
Afterwards on the further division of the common lands
of the town he obtained several other large plots, among
which were two lots known as numbers 11 and 12, at the
Yellow Hook, now Bay Ridge, described as lying by the
"fontein,*' at present the homestead farms held by Rulif
and Daniel Van Brunt^ his descendants, and he also pur-
chased several tracts.*
*Among the conveyances to Rutgert Joesten are found the following : Willem WlUemse
Van Engen to Rutger Joesten^ dated May 9th, 1661 ; conveys a lot m New Utrecht with
house, barn and valey, being lot No. 16, bounded E. by Gerrit de Mof, and on the W.
by the purchaser, for the sum of 650 guilders in good strong wampum. Thomas Jansen
(van Dyck) to Rutgert Joesten, dated Oct. 28, 16T7; conveys a patent from the director
Gen. Petrus Stuyvesant to Thomas Jansen, dated Dec. 26, 1661, for land in N. Utrecht,
bounded on the N. W. side of Rutger Joesten, on the S. E. of Tennis Idesse, stretching
N. E. a little Easterly in length 600 rods (7350 ft.), in breadth 24 rods (294rt.}, contains 24
morgen (48 acres) ; a piece in the meadow No. 14, in size 2 morgen and 160 rods ; a
house plot on the N. W. side of Claus Claessen (Smit), on the S. E. side of the cross road,
in breadth 12 rods, in length 25 rods. Hanse Hamiansen (Van Barkeloo) to Rut Joesten,
da. April 4, 1685 ; conveys a plot in N. Utrecht in rear of the house plot of John
Kierson, Cryn Janssen (Van Materen), and Daniel Voorvele, in size between 4 and 5
morgen, known by the name of "comp" (field). Hanse Harmanson (Van Barkeloo) to
Rut Joesten da. Apl. 4, 1685 ; conveys a parcel of woodland lying in the rear of the

conveys all his interest in the two rights of commonage or woodland unlaid out adjoin-
ing unto Utrick, Flatbush and Flatland, and is lying upon North side of Gravesend,
belonging unto the two lotments Nob. 21 and 36, for ^685. Thds purchase was immediately
assigned to Cornells and Joost, sons of Rutger Joesten. Achias Van Dyck of Brooklyn,
Jan Van Dyck of N. Utrecht, Carl Van Dyck of New Utrecht. Pieter Staets of Brooklyn,
Arie Bennet of Brooklyn, children and heirs of Jan Thomasse Van Dyck to Rutgert
Joesten, dated May 25, 1695 ; conveys two half lots lying in N. Utrecht, between the
lands of Jan Van Cleef and Rutgert Joesten, containing about 23 morgen (46 acres). This
was the old farm of Jan Thomasse adjoining the house plots, sold at public auction Jan.
5, 1695, for which Rutger Joesten paid SSOOgl. Peter and Jaques Cortelyou to i?M«
Joesten, da. Dec. 3d, 1696: conveys a corner of land lying on ihe S. W. side of the
road leading to the hills (Irom village of N. Utrecht to Ft. Hamilton and Bay Ridge),
in size as in fence.
TAN BRUNT FAMILY. 3
On the 6th of February, 1660, the director general
Petrus Stuy vesant with the fiscael (attorney general) Nica-
siusde Sille, visited the village of New Utrecht, on which
occasion he admonished the residents each to erect a suit-
able dwelling, to keep a man-servant able to bear arms,
and also to inclose the village with good heavy palisades.
On this occasion the inhabitants had the Prince's flag
(given to the town by the fiscael) hoisted on a high pole
in the centre of the village and unfurled to the breeze,
and RuTGER Joesten assisted by his neighbors prepared a
public entertainment or dinner in as good a style as the
place could afford, at which the director general and fiscael
were guests. During the troubles in 1663 and the begin-
ning of 1664, and prior to the English conquest of New
Netherlands,* when the towns of Hempstead, Jamaica,
Newtown, Oysterbay and Gravesend (whose settlers were
mostly English), entered into a "combination,*' as they
termed it, to manage their own affairs, but in reality to
throw off the Dutch yoke and join the English, and
employed Capt. John Scott (a bold and unprincipled adven-
turer who had been banished by the Parliament from Eng-
land for his misdeeds), to manage their affairs and fight
their battles — the valiant captain at the head of his 160
followers, after marching to Brooklyn ferry, Flatbush and
other localities, and frightening the peaceable farmers with
his antics and warlike display, marched into the quiet
village of New Utrecht. There, among other singular
feats he dismounted the small cannon in the block-house
erected for defense against the Indians, and then remounted
it in another port-hole which he called the King's port
and fired a salute. At the house of Rutger Joesten,
one of his valiant band, an Englishman from Hempstead
plains, a smith by trade, came along making considerable
noise and uproar, inquiring for Matthys Pickstaert,
threatening to run Tryntie Claes, Rutger Joesten's wife,
through with a sword which he held in his hand, and
pointed three different times at her breast, calling out.
Where is the man? so that eventually all the Englishmen
came into her house and stilled the fury, and relieved her
of the dread and peril in which she was placed. On the
establishment of a court of schepens (justices of the
peace) in the town of New Utrecht on the 22d of Dec,
1661, Jan Tomasse (Van Dyck), Rutgert Joesten, ^ud Jacob
Hellekers (Swart) were appointed to the office, which
position Rutgert Joesten held in 1665, and probably during
4 GENEALOGY OF THE
the intermediate years. In 1678, 1679, 1680, and 1685 he
was one of the opzienders (overseers), the principal magis-
trates of the place, an office established in 1665, after the
conquest of the New Netherlands by the English. It is
probable he held this office for a much longer period, the
records being very meagre and imperfect. In 1675,
Rutger Joesten was assessed for 1 poll, 5 horses, 4 cows,
13 sheep, and 1 hog, valued at <£144 IO5., and 72 mor-
•gen of land and valley valued at £144. In 1683 he was
assessed 2 polls, 200 acres of land, 8 horses and 24 cows.
In 1693 he was assessed for 2 slaves, 100 acres of land, 4
horsey, 12 cattle, 5 house plots, 1 house, 1 barn, 1 mill
and 1 brewery. On a census of 1698 he is entered, 1
man, 1 woman and 5 slaves.
He married 1st in 1657, Tryntje Claes or Claesen, widow
of StofFel Harmenson, cloth shearer, who was killed by
the Indians in the attack of 1655, leaving surviving a son
at the time twelve years old.* Tryntje was born about 1618,
and living fi-s late as 1688, in which year there is an entry
on the church books of her paying 12 guilders to the
church fund. He married 2d Greiian who was proba-
bly living in 1721, Rutger Joesten's estate being allowed
at that time two women's places in the church.

The following is a fac simile of his signature :
* The following is a copy of the minuteB of the orphan's court of New Amsterdam, which
throws light on this subject : " Whereas Tryntje Cmsen, wid. of the deceased Stoffel Har-
mensen, cloth shearer, killed in the year 1655 in the attack of the Indians, intends to enter
again the married state with Rut. Joesten van Brant, bachelor, and a little stepson about
if years old is left by the above named Tryntje Claesen and Stoffel Harmensen, and
it appears bv the will of said Stoffel Harmensen dated 10th July, 1649, executed at
Amsterdam before the notary Indrieq van der Vin and certain witnesses, and exhibited
to the worshipftil Orphan Masters of this city that the said little boy should receive the
just half of his father's goods and effects ; and it is accordinglv necessary that examina-
tion and proof be made of the said child's just share by impartial persons, either by perti-
nent inventory or estimate of the estate left by said Stoffel Harmensen ; Therefore
have the worshipful Orphan Masters requested and commissioned as their worships
hereby do, Messrs. Johannis Neflus, and Jaques Cortelyou as guardians and tutors over
the said minorishild, after examination of the estate, means and effects which have been
left, to agree with the said Tryn tie Clasen about the child's just share, and then to make
the same known here at the orphan chamber, and to secure the same by mortgage on the
lands or other real estate, so that the aforesaid child may obtain his just paternal share.

obtained as her portion all the land along the Narrows
and bay of New York from and including that occupied
by Fort Hamilton to the farm formerly of George Dur-
yea, deceased. Her son Jaques Denyse by her second
husband appears to have obtained possession of this pro-
perty, to the exclusion of her son by her first husband.

from 28th street to the line between New Utrecht and
Brooklyn. Willem Adrianse is the common ancestor of
the Bennet family in New Utrecht and Gowanus. Cornells
Ruigersz d. about 1748, and his wife probably in 1738, his
will being dated July 25, 1748, and proved and recorded

13, 1754, his sons BuigerP and Nicholas^ being his executors.
In his will he devises his Gravesend lands (the Pennoyer
patent), to his son Ruigeri^ and also a farm adjoining the
old Bath road, with village plots in New Utrecht. To his
son Nicholas^ a farm in New Utrecht lying on the westerly
side of the tract devised to Rutgert, with a dwelling house
and house plot, and also a tract of land adjoining the bills,
and his undivided right in the land in said town by the

1707, and from 1714 to 1743 inclusive, except in 1721, when
Peter Cortelyou was elected, and may have held the

years; was commissioned as ensign of militia, by Gov. Leis-
ler in 1689, and by Gov. Fletcher in 1693, as captain by
Gov. Cornbury in 1705, and afterwards as lieutenant

loan officer of the county, and in 1791 one of the com-
missioners to rebuild the court house in the town of
Th6 Lombardy poplar being introduced into the coun-
try about this period, Col. Van Brunt propagated them in
nurseries, and planted more than a mile of the frontage
of his farm on the road leading from New Utrecht to
Gravesend, and also both sides of the lane leading to his
dwelling house, with the young trees, placing them 12 feet
apart, intending when of sufficient size to use them as a
substitute for fence posts. The experiment on being tried,
when the trees had arrived at a sufficient size after his
death, proved a failure, the sap oozing out of the holes
cut in the sides of the trees to admit the insertion of the
rails, together with the dampness, caused the inserted end
of the rails in a short time to decay, and the rail to drop
or be easily displaced by cattle. These steeple-shaped
trees which some years ago gave this road a picturesque
appearance, have about all disappeared.
At the time when these trees were young, the appren-
tices of Col. James Cropsey, a master carpenter, com-
monly known as Boss Cropsey, a resident of the locality
in New Utrecht known as Union ville, on returning at night
from a ball in the village of Gravesend, out of mischief
broke down several of the young poplars. Col. Van Brunt
on discovering the damage next day, knowing of the ball
and ascertaining who were present, soon divined who had
done the mischief. Calling upon Boss Cropsey, he in-
formed him of his suspicions ; on which the Boss took a
singular method to ferret out the culprits. He went into
the shop where his apprentices were at work, and pro-
ceeded to make a bat in their presence, they having spied
the colonel, looking upon his actions with distrust. On
completing the bat, he walked up to one of the most timid,
and, without saying a wprd, commenced whaling him on
his bottom ; after two or three blows the frightened ap-
prentice roared out, " Oh, stop Bossy, stop Bossy, and I will
tell you all about it ! *' The Boss ceased his blows, and the
boy made a fall confession, in which the others joined.
The offenders having been brought before the colonel, the
punishment he meted out to them was to come the next
day and pull flax all day, a laborious job. The boys after
having performed their penance, said they did not so
much mind pulling the flax, as the being compelled at
noon by the colonel to come into the house and dine with

independence, Adrian Van Brunt was captain of the militia
of the town, favoring the separation from Great Britain.
It was on the farms of J.rfnan Van Brunt and that of Isaac
Cortelyou, the British, on the morning of the 22d of Au-
gust, 1776, landed 15,000 men with 40 pieces of cannon,
in command of Lord Howe, under cover of the guns of
a portion of their fleet, intended to put down the rebellion
in the state and colonies, which effort, however, proved to
be a signal failure. After the battle of Long Island and
the occupation of the island and the city of New York by
the British, Adrian with his neighbors, were compelled
either to take the oath of allegiance to the king, to leave
the country, or suffer the pains and penalties of a refusal.
Not being prepared to emigrate, and unwilling to run the
risk of suffering and starvation,' he and nearly all the
farmers of Kings Co., in November, 1776, took the oath
and protection, and remained under the British govern-
ment until the end of the war. On the 13th of June, 1778,
Wm. Marrener with Lieut. John Schenck and twenty-eight

militia-men from Middletown point, N. J., landed from
two boats on New Utrecht beach, and after having called
upon their friends, with a portion of their force marched
to Flatbu8h with the intention of making prisoners of
Mayor Matthews of N. T., Miles Sherbrook, Major Mon-
critfe and Theophylaet Bache. The attempt on the two
former failed on account of their absence, but succeeded
with the others, and in addition, Capt. Forrest was cap-
tured, who were all safely carried oft' from their beds,
marched to the beach, and taken to New Jersey. The
British authorities rightly supposed that it was impossible
for Marrener's party to have marched to Flatbush in the
evening without having been seen by some of the inhabit-
ants. Those who knew of or had seen the party, and
failed to give the alarm, by law, were guilty of treason.
Col. Rutgert Van Brunt, of Gravesend, and his brother
Adrian^ and Rem Van Pelt and his brother Aert, of New
Utrecht, were arrested on the 16th of June, on suspicion,
and confined separately in the provost jail in New York.
The colonel who had money, managed to bribe the sergeant
who had charge so as to obtain a midnight interview with
his fellow prisoners, at which it was arranged to deny all
knowledge of the affair. When examined separately,
they all agreed in their story, and no proof appearicg
against them, they were discharged. During the war,
Adrian appears to nave been the leading man in the town,
his name appearing at the head of addresses, commit-
