This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you.

PREFACE. 



Having in my researches among the ancient and musty 
records and papers in possession of the old families of King's 
County (who have kindly favored me with the use of the same), 
gathered much genealogical and other information worthy of 
preservation and of use to future genealogists and historians, 
I take this method of endeavoring to effect that object, and 
of preserving the same for the use of the public, hoping that 
it will prove acceptable. To make the work more complete, 
the records of the state, county, towns, and churches have 
been carefully examined, and the name of every resident, 
and of landholders not resident therein found, inserted. 
That the work is so perfect as to contain the names of all 
such, the names of all their children, with correct dates in 
all cases, is not pretended, but an honest effort has been made 
to effect this object. Surnames and names of parents are in 
many cases enclosed in brackets.

\ Throughout this work the second name inserted of an individual is the 
name of his father, as " Abel Stoffel Jansen' represents Abel the son of 
Stoffel Jansen, or Abel Jansen. son of Stofifel Jansen. At the period of 
the early settlement of this country it was customary for individuals to add

had none). On these pages the compiler has affixed to the names of 
individuals the names of their fathers, although in many cases not used 
by said individuals, for the purpose of aiding in identifying persons.

Allowing 30 years for a generation, this would carry the 
genealogy of the family back over 4000 years, or to about 
the time of Noah's flood. If there is any foundation for the 
123 generations, the inference would be that the ancestors 
of the Hubbard's were Jews, for they alone through the 
Bible trace from Noah to the days of our Saviour, and are 
the only race who could be supposed to make a pretence of 
tracing from that period to the present time. There was a 
James Hubbard, ag. 27, who emigrated from London to S^ 
Christopher's in 1635, as per p. 80 of Hotten's Emigrants.

Nicholas Stillwell for 1600 gl. and the fee of plantation-lot 
No. 29 in G**, with the buildings and improvements thereon, 
which plantation-lot Anthony sold Dec. 1669 to Fernandus 
Van Sickelen, his son-in-law. After this he appears to have 
removed back to N. A., where he died. Anthony's patent 
during this period was known as ** Turk's plantation," from 
his being designated as " Turk" on some of the old records. 
Stillwell sold said patent Feb. 28, 1664, to Francois de 
Bruynne, after whom it was called Bruynnsberg. June 4, 
1665, De Bruynne sold a part of the patent located on the

Bath road or lane, to Jan Janse Ver Ryne. Dec. 10, 1678,

his one half of " Turk's plantation," containing 100 A., as 
per p. 98 of Lib. 2 of Con., and on the same date Joosten and 
Hansen conveyed the one half of said plantation to Gerret

Gerret Coerten of N. U., as per p. 203 of said Lib., sold ta 
Albert Coerten his s. one half of said plantation, and Feb. 
12, 1702-3, Barent Joosten of N. U. sold to said Albert Coer- 
ten his one half of the same, as per p. 261 of said Lib. 2, thus 
making Albert the sole owner of the whole of the patent,, 
except the part sold to Ver Ryne. May 9, 1747, Albert 
Coerten conveyed to his son Coert Voorhies, and Oct. 5, 
1756, Coert conveyed to his sons Coert and Barnardus said 
premises. In 1879, in levelling the sand-dunes on the up- 
land on the edge of the bay a little S.E. of the buildings of 
Mr. Gunther at Locust Grove, which dunes had been blown 
up from the beach, and which had been gradually extending 
back with the abrasion of. the shore or coast, the remains 
of two separate pieces of stone wall about 2 ft. high and i 
ft. wide, made mainly of unbroken field-stones laid in clay 
mortar, with a clay floor between them, were exhumed. 
These remains were covered with from 4 to 10 ft. of sand, 
and are probably those of the barn or other farm buildings 
of Anthony Jansen, it being customary in the early settle- 
ment of this country to construct their threshing-floors of 
clay, of which specimens existed and were in use in this 
country in the younger days of the author, their roofs being 
made of thatched straw instead of shingles, as at present.

MoDY or Moody, Lady Deborah, (dau. of Walter Dunch 
of England and wid. of Sir Henry Mody^ and her associates, 
to avoid persecution in Massachusetts and New England, left 
said locality and came to New Netherlands, settling in 1643 in 
G^ among the more tolerant Hollanders. In Oct. of that year 
she and her settlers were driven off by the Indians to Amers- 
foort (Fid"), where they remained to the end of the Indian war 
and then returned to G^. Her name, with that of Sir Henry 
Mody her s., Ensign George Baxter, and Serjeant James Hub- 
bard, appears on the patent of G'^ of Dec. 10, 1645, and in 1646, 
on the laying out of the plantation-lots, she was allotted a 
bouwery. She appears to have owned and occupied a farm ad- 
joining that of Robert Pennoyer, since of Van Brunt Magaw and 
late of Judge Samuel Smith, and, as near as can be ascertained, 
covering the farms late of Jacobus Lake and that late of Der- 
ick Stryker. Nov. 22,1648, she let all her "broken up" 
(cleared) land, excepting one piece she reserved for her own 
use, for 3 years to " Thos. Cornewill," she furnishing him with 
4 oxen and 4 cows ; he to pay 10 skipples of wheat per annum 
rent for the land and 60 gl. per annum for the use of the ani- 
mals. A dispute having arisen between her and her tenant 
about the ** breaking up" (clearing) a piece of land, and left to 
arbitrators, they decided May 5, 1650, that Comewill should 
be allowed to crop the land next year, and that she should pay 
him 15 gl. on the surrender of the same, as per G** rec. She

d. in 1659, and there is a tradition that she was buried in the 
bi^ying-ground in said village, with a common small field- 
boulder at the head of the grave to mark the same. 

By an agreement entered into at " Amersfoort" while Lady 
Mody and her associates were located there during the Indian 
war, as per Lib. 2 of G** rec, it was concluded that in the set- 
tlement of G*^ each associate should be accommodated with a 
certain quantity of land within a certain fence to be erected, 
which said land should be divided into 28 shares or parts, each 
to receive a part and also a building-plot. Under this in 1646 
plantation-lots were granted to 

Richard Gibbons, John EUice,

persons was required in Dec. 1646 to keep 20 poles, and in 
addition the following persons, who had had plantation-lots 
assigned them, were also required to keep 20 poles of said 
fence, viz. : 

James Grover, Rodger Scott, 

Ralph Cardell, Robert Pennoyer,

Henry (s. of Lady Mody), b. 1606. His name appears on

mother, he sold a double lot with buildings, known as Nos. 9 
and 10, (she having a patent for the same from Director or Gov. 
Kieft,) to Jan Jansen Ver Ryn for the use of his s. Abraham 
Jansen Ver Ryn, as per G*^ rec. Litigation occurred between 
Mody and Ver Ryn about the payments for these premises. 
Sept. 6, 1660, he sold John Bowne the plantation and build- 
ings which previously belonged to Edward Brouse, known as 
No. 24, as per G** rec. After this he appears to have left G*^

The present Coney I. was, on the first settlement of this 
country, composed of 3 separate islands, divided from each 
other by inlets or guts now closed. The westernmost one 
was known as Coney I., the middle one as Pine I., and the 
easternmost one as Gisbert's or Gysbert's I., so named after 
Gisbert Opdyck. At a later period the easternmost one was 
also known as Johnson's I., from Barent and William John- 
son at one period owning the tillable land (about 60 A.) on 
the same. About 1670 the inhabitants of G^ at a town 
meeting directed the division of the tillable land, which ap-

* It is claimed by some of the Schenck family that Jan and Roelof 
Martense Schenck are sons of Marten Schenck of Nydack or Nydeggen, 
a town about 18 miles southeast from Aix-la-Chapelle; that Marten's 
father was Peter Schenck of Nydack, b. in 1547 at Goch, a small town 
about 10 miles south of Cleves, m. in 1580 Johanna Scherpenzeel; and 
that this Peter was a brother of the celebrated Marten Schenck, a soldier 
of fortune and an officer of distinction in the wars of the Low Countries. 
Without the evidence which has been gathered in Holland of the genealo- 
gy of the family, the name would imply a relationship to the soldier and 
warrior, but it is singular, if this account is correct, that the name of 
Peter does not appear in the family until the fourth generation, when it 
is well known that it was the custom of the Netherlanders to perpetuate 
the names of their ancestors, which custom prevails among many of their 
descendants in this country to this day. These Schencks, according to 
tradition, owned vessels which traded with the Netherlands, which often, 
by way of Rockaway Inlet, came into Flatlands or Jamaica Bay to de- 
liver or receive goods from their owners. 

There was a * ' Wessel Schenck " among the members of the company 
chartered Oct. 11, 1614, for an 'exclusive trade of three years with the 
New Netherlands, as per p. 149 of Vol. I. of Doc. of Col. His.

North Holland in the Netherlands; and New Lotts as •'Oostwoud," from 
a village of that name near " Midwoud." The other towns in Kings Co. 
{except Bushwick) being named by the first settlers after the localities in 
the fatherland from which some of them came, the inference appears to 
be a fair one that it was also the case with Flatbush, especially since at 
least one of its early settlers came from Hauwert or Hoogwoud, a village 
in the vicinity of "Midwoud" and *'Oostwoud." The earliest document 
on which Flatbush is designated as Midwout, which has come to the 
notice of the compiler, is on a grant of land to Jacob Corlaer of Oct. 7, 
1652, on p. 129 of Cal. of Dutch His. Man. The name on the early 
colonial and town records is generally written "Midwout.'' The princi- 
pal exceptions, caused by the peculiar methods of spelling of different 
town-clerks and others, are that from 1660 to 1680 it appears on the town 
records as '* Midewout," "Midwoudt," "Middewout," " Middwout," 
"Middelwoudt," ** Middlewout," and " Midelwout;" from 1700 to 1712 
as "Midwoud;" afterwards as "Midwout" (with the exception of 1760, 
in which year at least in one case Jeremias Vanderbilt, the town-clerk, 
wrote it " Midderwout"). See pp. 30 and 71 of Lib. A of Fl** town rec; 
pp. 4, 8i, 17, 19, 30, 31, 42, 43, 45, 49, and 79 of Lib. B; and p. 115 of 
Lib. AA of do. From about the period of the Revolutionary war the 
town has been known as "Flatbush," the former name having been 
dropped. The name "Flatbush" was, however, occasionally used at an 
early date; as an instance, it appears on a deed of Nov. 24, 1654, of Dirck 
Jansen to Cor' Van Ruyven, of premises "in Flatbush, otherwise called 
Midwout," as per p. 58 of said Cal. of Dutch Man. The name of 
" Vlachte Bos" and " Flackebos," the Dutch for flat woods or level woods, 
was also occasionally used.

Stillwell is entitled to credit for, never swerving from his 
allegiance to the Dutch government, which is more than 
can be said of many of his English neighbors, who, on what 
they supposed to be the first favorable opportunity, proved 
themselves to be traitors to the colony to which they fled 
from persecution, and to which they were indebted for pro- 
tection and the enjoyment of religious liberty. In 1663 he 
was an ensign in the Esopus expedition against the In- 
dians, and the same year commissioned as lieut., as per Col. 
Man. He finally removed to Dover, S. I., where he d. Dec.

misfortune of losing his right one as has been claimed. 
Dr. J. E. Stillwell of N. Y., in behalf of the claim that 
Nicholas made his mark in consequence of the loss of his 
right arm, has exhibited to the compiler of this work an 
original and genuine document (stating that he had seen 
another) on which his name was subscribed in full in a good 
and legible hand. Against this evidence are documents of 
a prior date, with numerous ones later, with the bungling 
mark, from which it may fairly be inferred that the name 
on the document exhibited had been written by some other 
person at Nicholas's request, as is occasionally done at the 
present day.

Jacominaor Jacomynchy Jacobs Swarts of N. A.; d. in 1706. 
Was a carpenter and wheelwright by trade, and Apl. 9, 
1658, while a resident of Br** was fined for refusing to pay 
towards Do. Polhemius's salary. Aug. 10, 1670, he ob- 
tained permission from the director-gen. to return to Hol- 
land, and with his wife kept house at Zwolle in Overyssel, 
but not prospering he returned in 1679 in the ship The 
Charles, the vessel in which were embarked Pieter Sluyter 
and Jasper Dankers, De Labidists, whose interesting 
journal was procured and has been translated by the Hon. 
H. C. Murphey and published by the L. I. His. Society. 
He finally settled on a farm partly in N. U. and Fl^, con- 
veyed to him by Jacques Cortelyou, his brother-in-law, as

this it is evident that the old Van Duyn house, in which it 
is supposed he resided and which was demolished a few

necessary and proper in the premises, for an annual salary 
of 200 florens exclusive of perquisites. This agreement was

Van Noort Brook, Pieter Jacobse, probably from 
" Noordbroeck/* a village in Groningen, leased Feb. 7, 
1667, of Tomas Fransen his plantation at Gowanus, lying 
on the S. side of that of W. Poules Vander Beeck, with 
house, barn, and barrack thereon, for 3 years commencing 
May I, 1667, on condition that the lessor during said term 
clear 3 morgens of land and enclose the same in a post and 
5-rail fence, for which the lessor is to do the carting; the 
lessee with his neighbor to fence in the meadows at the cost 
of the lessor; the lessor to furnish and let to the lessee 2 
milch-cows, of which he is to be entitled to one half of the 
increase and 16 lbs. of butter annually for each cow; also 
10 sheep, of which he is to be entitled to one half of the in- 
crease and wool, following the custom of the country. If 
after the lessee has been a year on the land he finds it 
necessary to have a pair of draught oxen, the lessor to fur- 
nish them, for which a reasonable compensation to be given. 
If the lessee in the last year of the term sows any of the land 
with winter grain, the lessor to allow what is reasonable for 
the same. In addition the lessor to furnish the lessee with 
2 sows, for which he is to be annually entitled to one half 
of the increase. The lessor sells to the lessee a canoe, for 
which he is to deliver to the lessor on the shores of Man- 
hattan I. 2000 pieces of wood in the month of June of this 
year. The lessor must also, on the edge of the land of Mr. 
Poulus, where there, stands a 3-rail fence, change it to a 5- 
rail one, an increase of about 50 rails. It is also expressly 
understood that such firewood as the lessee may cut to sell 
at the Manhattans the lessor shall have the privilege to 
purchase at the market price in preference to his selling to 
others. If it occurs that the lessor during the continuance 
of the lease from any cause should conclude to build and 
reside on the premises, if not damaging to the lessee, the 
lessor to be entitled so to do. The above is a translation of 
the main part of the record in Dutch of this lease, as 
recorded on p. 91 of Lib. D of F*l^ rec, and is given as a 
specimen of an ancient lease showing the customs of the 
times. The plantation referred to is the one occupied by 
Simon De Hart when visited in 1679 by the De Labidists, 
as set forth in Vol. i of the Transactions of the L. I. His. 
Soc, late the farms of Simon and John S. Bergen at Gowa- 
nus. The adjoining plantation of Vander Beeck is the one 
lately occupied by Garret Bergen. He made his mark to

Van Werckhoven, Cor'nelis, a member of the West India

had, among other large tracts, purchased for him from the 
Indians what is known as the Nyack or Najeck tract in 
N. U. for 6 shirts, 2 pairs of shoes, 6 pairs of stockings, 6 
adzes, 6 axes, 6 knives, 2 scissors, and 6 combs, described as 
" land lying East of the North River in the Hoof den 
(Heights), so as said land previous to this to the Noble 
Company was sold and once more paid for; said land ex- 
tending in the rear of M*" Paulus land (the late Garret 
Bergen and Schemerhorn farms at Gowanus) named Gewa-

marked out," etp., and for which Van Werckhoven procured 
the Indian deed on Nov. 22, 1652. This description appears

hoven commenced a settlement on his Nyack lands, on 
which he built a residence and secure retreat, returning to 
Holland in 1654 for the purpose of obtaining the requisite 
, number of settlers to entitle him to full feudal privileges on 
his purchase, which number he failed to furnish, leaving 
Jacques Cortelyou, the private tutor of his children, to man- 
age his colony and affairs during his absence. He died in 
Holland in 1655, leaving surviving a wid. and minor chil-

what is known as the Duke's laws. Singularly by Thomp- 
son and nearly all of our historians, he is designated as 
" Younger Hope," the " Younger" being probably derived 
from "Joncker," which means young mister or junior, but 
how "Vosch" or "de Vosch" became transformed into 
" Hope" is not so easily explained, especially when the 
English of the Dutch word " Vos" is " Fox." Jan. 16, 1665, 
he bought of Claes Claesen (Smit) a plantation in N. U., be-
