ROOSEVELT GENEALOGY 



1. CLAES MARTENSZEN VAN ROSEN VELT arrived in 
New Netherland, now New York, in one of the most memorable 
years in the history of his time, for it was about 1649, when the 
Dutch government was seriously embarrassed. A contest had 
been waged between the people and the Sovereign of England, 
as it had long before been carried on in the Netherlands. Oppo- 
sition had been succeeded by revolt and civil war. Charles the 
First was beheaded in front of his own banqueting hall, and 
England declared a republic. The shock which troubled Europe 
was felt in America. In that year Winthrop died. The Dutch 
and other traders were forbidden to trade with the New England 
savages. Arms were brought to New Amsterdam from Holland, 
the people fearing that war would break out with the savages. 
Public opinion was running strong against Stuyvesant. Food 
was scarce. The winter was so cold that "ink froze in the pen." 
About this time a Burgher government was demanded, and dele- 
gates were sent to Holland. Katskill and Claverack were settled. 
Stuyvesant opposed the reformers. Fort Nassau was demolished. 
Esopus (N. Y.) and Newtown (L. I.) were settled. The Burgher 
government was conceded to Manhattan. War was declared be- 
tween the English and the Dutch nations. The Dutch built forti- 
fications across New Amsterdam. In 1652- 1653 all business 
was at a standstill, and the people were under arms, not knowing 
when an attempt would be made against the Colony. The next 
year the Dutch found danger still greater, as Cromwell had dis- 
patched a fleet to America, and as the fleet was leaving New 
England for New Amsterdam it was met by a vessel bringing 
news of peace between England and Holland. Later, in 1655, 
the Colony awoke one morning to find itself in possession of the 
Indians, but Stuyvesant established quiet by presents instea.d of 
by arms. 

Claes Martenszen van Rosenvelt was among the numerous 
Holland colonists who came over to New Amsterdam in 1649 or 
1650, undoubtedly bringing with him his wife, Jannetje Samuel — 
Thomas. In Munsill's American Ancestry, Vol. VI., p. 19, we 



4 ROOSEVELT GENEALOGY. 

find the statement that he emigrated to New Amsterdam, with his 
wife, in August, 1649. No record of their marriage in New- 
Amsterdam has been found, but it is a matter of record in the 
"Court Minutes of New Amsterdam, August 6, 1655," that "Jan- 
netie Hamel, wife of Nicholas Martensen, declares," etc. The 
baptismal records of their children in the Reformed Dutch church 
of New York City are signed by their parents as Claes Martenszen 
van Rosevelt — Jannetje Samuels — Jannetje Thomas, as shown by 
the records herein given, 

Styntie Claes Rosevelt was admitted member of the church 
November 28, 1678. Claes Rosevelt was admitted December'4, 
1679, to th^ Reformed Dutch church of New York, where they 
and their descendants have attended for 250 years. 

Their children were :

about 1712 at Tappan, where he had served as 'voorleser.' " (Riker's 
History of Bap. records copied from Church records, Harlem, p. 532.)

1699, and in 1700 he was Assistant Alderman for the South 
Ward." (Valentine's History, p. 332.) "Mr. and Mrs. Meyer 
were members of the Dutch Church in 1686." (Church Records.) 

"Hendrick Jillish Meyer was the son of Jillis (or Gillis) 
Pieterszen (Meyer), commonly called Pieterszen van der Grouw, 
or van der Gonda — the ancient town of Gonda or Tergrouw in 
Holland, his birthplace. House carpenter; came to New Amster- 
dam in 1633. On the i6th of April, 1639, at the age of 27, in 
company with Jacob Stoffelson and Tymen Janszen, he makes

Ill 1728, Mr. Jacobus Rosenvelt bought ten lots, each being 
25x120 feet, "in the swamp near cripple Bush," for iio each. 
The swamp was originally very low ground, covered by bushes, 
and was known as the "Cripple Bush" or tangled briars, through 
which, a few years later, Roosevelt street was opened. Lots were 
marked off, and it became the seat of several tanneries, and it is 
still monopolized by the leather business. He afterwards bought 
the whole of the "Beekman Swamp" for iioo, through which he 
opened Ferry street. The "Beekman Swamp," in the vicinity of. 
Ferry and the neighboring streets, embracing the blocks between 
the present Nassau and Pearl streets, on the east and west, and 
from Fulton on the south, to the swamp which furnished its 
northern boundary, came into requisition for building purposes 
and became the present Beekman street. (Valentine's Hist. N. 
Y., p. 285 : Old Merchants of N. Y.) 

"A stream called 'Wreck Brook' ran from the 'Collect' to the 
East river, through a meadow ; it emptied into the river at the 
foot of what is now Roosevelt street. The 'Collect Pond' was a 
large body of fresh water, said to have been seventy feet deep, 
situated in the basin in the site of which is now occupied by the 
Tombs."

. Isaac Roosevelt was admitted freeman September 27, 1748. 
His business was that of sugar refining. He built the old sugar 
house, the first erected before the Revolution, and worked during 
the war and for forty years after. His store was originally on 
Wall street. His house faced on Queen street, now Pearl, in 
Franklin Square. Harper Bros, now own this property. On the 
rear of his house and in the center of the block was the old sugar 
house. On the 25th of -April, 1772, he removed to St. George's 
Square, and he issued the following advertisement : "Isaac 
Roosevelt is removed from his house in Wall Street to the house 
of his late brother. Jacobus Roosevelt, Jr., deceased, near the Sugar 
house, and opposite to Mr. William Waltons, being on the north- 
west side of Queen Street, where his customers may be supplied 
as usual with double, middling and single refined loaf sugars, 
clarified, muscovado and other molasses, & etc." 

The Chamber of Commerce was organized in 1768 and kept up 
by the resident merchants during the war. Isaac Roosevelt was 
one of its first members. (Mem. Hist. N. Y., p. 15, Vol III.) 
His name is found among the original incorporators of the first 
public hospital in New York, 1770. 

Mr. Isaac Roosevelt enlisted as private in the Sixth Regiment, 
Dutchess County Militia (Land Bounty Rights: N. Y. in the Rev- 
olution, p. 250). He was elected April 22, 1775, a member of the 
Provincial Congress "On Sunday, April 23, 1775, at noon, a 
dusty, travel-stained horseman dashed into the city with the news 
of the affair at Lexington, in a twinkling copies of the dispatch 
he bore were posted at all places of public resort." 

"On May the ist, 1775, the following gentlemen were among 
those chosen a general committee for the county and city of New 
York in the present alarming crisis. 'Isaac Roosevelt, 'Nicholas 
Roosevelt,' at the same time chosen deputies of the other counties 
in the Provincial Congress, May 22. Isaac Roosevelt." (N. Y. 
Mem. Hist., Vol. II., p. 480.) 

He was one of the most noted Whigs of the time. On the 
entry of the British he withdrew from the city. His sacrifices 
were rewarded by the confidence of his countrymen. Mr. Roose- 



ROOSEVELT GENEALOGY. 27 

velt was one of the General Committee of One Hundred to take 
control of the government. He represented the city of New York 
in the convention at Kingston, Ulster County, N. Y., to form a 
constitution for this State, April 20, 1777, and of the New York 
convention at Poughkeepsie, June 18, 1788, to deliberate on the 
adoption of the Constitution of the United States. 

The men of 1776 had found out long ago that to carry on war 
successfully money was needed, for they had to pay for powder 
alone £30 or £40 per 100 wt. ; hence the last issue of paper money 
was soon drawn out of the treasury. About the same time New 
York applied to the Continental Congress for a loan of £45,000, 
which was refused, and the Committee of Safety, sitting during 
the adjournment of the Provincial Congress, ordered, January 6, 
1776, that Isaac Roosevelt get an emission of paper money ready 
as quickly as possible. Delays, however, arose. March 5th the 
House adopted the report of the Committee for the issue of 
£55,000, 213,400 bills in denomination of 1-8, 1-6, 1-4, 1-3, 1-2, 2-3, 
I, 2, 3, 5, 10, to be redeemed or sunk in three yearly installments, 
beginning March i, 1779. (Mem. Hist. N. Y., Vol. IV., p. 339.) 
The Bank of New York was establised early in 1784, largely 
through the efforts of William Duer and General Alexander Mc- 
Dougall, who was its first president until his death on 8th June, 
1786, when Mr. Roosevelt succeeded him. Mr. Roosevelt was 
State Senator, 1786-90. 

The freeholders and freemen of the city met at the Exchange 
on March 6. On that day a Union flag with a red field was 
hoisted on the liberty pole, at 9 o'clock, when the people rallied in 
large numbers and marched to the Exchange, where they author- 
ized the committee to nominate eleven deputies, for the sole pur- 
pose of choosing delegates to the General Congress, such election 
to be held April 25. The committee nominated deputies for the 
city and county of New York in the Provincial Congress. They 
were Philip Livingston, John Jay. James Duane, John Alsop, Isaac 
Low, Francis Lewis, Abraham Walton, Abraham Brasher, Alex- 
ander McDougall, Leonard Lispenard and Isaac Roosevelt.

New York State convention, called to meet at Poughkeepsie, 
June 17, 1788. Isaac Roosevelt was one of the seventeen State 
Senators under Governor Clinton. 

In 1784 Mr. Roosevelt resumed his business of sugar refining,

Commerce Rec.) 

In the diary of General George Washington the following 
lines are written about Nov. 14, 1789 : "Received an invitation to 
attend the funeral of Mrs. Roosevelt (the wife of a Senator of 
this State), but declined complying with it, first, because the pro- 
priety of accepting an invitation of this sort appeared to be very 
questionable, and secondly (though to do it in this instance might 
not be improper), because it might be difficult to discriminate in 
cases which might thereafter happen." (Mem. Hist. N. Y., Vol. 
III., p. 57. 

"She departed this life on Fryday, 12 o'clock ye 13 Nove 1789

180. NICHOLAS (Jacobus"), bap. December 27, 1767, in 
New York City. "Was carefully educated. His connection with 
the invention of the Vertical steamboat paddle wheels is best de- 
scribed by John H. B. Latrobe, in his 'Lost Chapter on the His- 
tory of the Steamboat' (Batlimore, 1871). Mr. Latrobe's investi- 
gations show that, soon after the evacuation of New York by the 
British, Roosevelt returned to New York from Esopus, where he 
then resided, and where he had made a small wooden boat, across 
which was an axle projecting over the sides with paddles at the 
ends, made to revolve by a tight cord wound around its middle by 
the reaction of hickory and whalebone springs. In New York he 
engaged in manufacturing and inventing ; subsequently he became 
interested in the Schuyler copper mines in New Jersey, on the 
Passaic river, and from a model of Josiah Hornblower's 
atmospheric machine completed a similar one, built engines 
for various purposes, and constructed those for the water works 
of Philadelphia. He was also at the same time under contract 
to erect rolling works and supply the government with copper 
drawn and rolled for six 74-gun ships. In 1797, with Robert 
Livingston and John Stevens, he agreed to build a boat on joint 
account, for which the engines were to be constructed by Roose- 
velt, and the propelling agency was to be planned by Livingston. 
This experiment failed, the speed attained being only equivalent 
to about three miles an hour in still water. On September 6, 1798, 
Roosevelt had fully described to Livingston a vertical wheel, 
which he earnestly recommended. This is the first practical sug- 
gestion of the combination that made steam navigation a com- 
mercial success, although four years later Robert Fulton believed 
that chains and floats were alone to be relied on. Livingston, 
however, had replied to Roosevelt's proposition on October 28, 
1798, that 'vertical wheels are out of the question.' But in the 
Spring of 1802, Livingston having communicated Roosevelt's plans 
to Fulton, they adopted the former's view, and in January of- the 
next year launched a boat that was propelled by Roosevelt's ver- 
tical wheels. Roosevelt in the meantime became greatly embar- 
rassed financially, the government failed to fulfill its contract with 



ROOSEVELT GENEALOGY. 39 

him, and he was unable to put his plans in operation. In 1809 
he associated himself with Fulton in the introduction of steam- 
boats on the western waters, and in 181 1 he built and navigated 
the "New Orleans," the pioneer boat that descended the Ohio and 
Mississippi rivers, from Pittsburg to New Orleans in fourteen 
days, he having previously descended both rivers in a flat boat to 
obtain information. In July, 181 5, he applied to the Legislature 
of the United States for protection as the inventor of vertical 
wheels, for which he had obtained letters-patent from the United 
States in December, 1814. The Legislature, after discussion, de 
cided that 'it was inexpedient to make any special provision in 
connection with the matter in controversy before the body,' and 
there the matter rested. Roosevelt's papers came into the posses- 
sion of Richard S. Cox, his executor, from whom they were ob- 
tained, in 1828, and from these, with others from the papers of 
Chancellor Livingston, a case was prepared and submitted to 
Roger B. Taney, which had been already submitted to William 
Wirt, and, both opinions being favorable, a suit was about to be 
begun, when the consideration of the great expense involved in its 
prosecution caused the whole matter to be abandoned. ^ 

"Roosevelt had by this time retired from active life, residing 
with his family in Skaneateles, Cayuga County, N. Y. 

"In the case submitted for Mr. Wirt's opinion it is said that 
Fulton never made oath to the application for a patent for vertical 
wheels over the sides ; and that the application itself was signed by 
another person — a statement that would seem to be corroborated 
to a great extent by Fulton's own account of his invention in an 
interview with B. H. Latrobe on February 7, 1809, when the latter 
was endeavoring to bring about what subsequently took place — 
a connection between Fulton and Roosevelt in regard to the intro- 
duction of steamboats on the western waters. T have no preten- 
sions,' said Fulton, 'to be the first inventor of the steamboat. 
Hundreds of others have tried it and failed. Neither do I pretend 
to the right to navigate steamboats, except in New York. . . . 
That to which I claim an exclusive right is the so proportioning 
the boat to the power of the engine and the velocity with which 
the wheels of the boat, or both, move with the maximum velocity 
attainable by the power, and the construction of the whole ma- 
chine.' In the same conversation Mr. Fulton said : 'As to Mr. 
Roosevelt, I regard him as a noble-minded, intelligent man, and 
would do anything to serve him that I could.' " (Appleton's 
Cyclopedia of American Biography. Vol. V., pp. 317-318.)

in 1819, and studied law, but was prevented by delicate health from 
practising. He never married, and the fortune that he inherited was not 
large, but by investments in real estate and a simple, unostenta- 
tious manner of living, he accumulated the sum that he intended from 
his early manhood to leave for some charitable object:. By the terms 
of his will he left the principal part of his estate to found a noble hos- 
pital in New York City, which bears his name, and was formally opened 
2d November, 1871. The property left by him was valued at about one 
million but in the interval of eight years between his death and the open- 
ing of the hospital the estate had been so administered by his trustees 
that the principal aggregated at least one million, exclusive of the 
ground upon which the buildings were erected in West 59th street. The 
buildings themselves represented an expenditure of $950,000. The prop- 
erty in 1888 was worth $2,000,000. On the tablet that is placed to his 
memory in Roosevelt Hospital is inscribed: " To the memory of James 
Henry Roosevelt, a true son of New York, the generous founder of this 
hospital, a man upright in his aims, simple in his life and sublime in his 
benefaction." (Appleton's Cyc. Am. Biog.)

gust 7, 1829, in New York City, bap. Robert Barnhill, was admit- 
ted to the bar in 1850. While in practice he also contributed to 
the magazines. Was an enthusiastic sportsman, and organized 
several clubs to restrain the indiscriminate slaughter of game. 
During the Civil War he was an active Democrat, and a founder 
of the Allotment Commission and the Loyal National League. 
He founded the New York State Fishery Commission in 1867, 
and was appointed one of the three Fish Commissioners, on which 
he has served without a salary. The reports of the body were pre- 
pared chiefly by him, and have led to the appointment of similar 
commissions in other States. His first experience in politics was 
in the organization of the citizens' association at the time of the 
"Tweed Ring" administration in New York City. He was a 
founder of the committee of seventy and was first vice-president 
of the "Reform Club." With Charles G. Halpine, he edited the 
"Citizen," the organ of that association, and after Mr. Halpine's 
death succeeded to the sole charge of the paper. He served in 
Congress from 1873 to 1875. Although the pressure of anti- 
Tammany Democratic organizations forced Tammany Hall to ap- 
prove his nomination, he denounced the measures of the corrupt 
clique. In May, 1880, he was appointed United States Minister 
to the Netherlands, whereupon he resigned the office of Fish Com- 
missioner, giving in his letter to the Governor a review of what 
had been accomplished during his twenty years of service. He 
was instrumental in the establishing paid fire and health depart- 
ments of New York City, and was commissioner of the "Brooklyn 
Bridge," and for many years served as president of the "Fish Cul- 
ture Association," of that for the protection of game, of the New 
York Sportsman's Club, of the International Association for the 
Protection of Game, of the Holland Trust Company, a founder 
of the Lotus and Arcadian Clubs, and a member of the American 
Association for the advancement of science. Was vice-president 
of the Sons of American Revolution, first president of the Hol- 
land Society. He has published "The Game Fish of North Amer- 
ica" (New York, i860) ; "The Game Birds of the North" (1866) ; 
"Superior Fishing" (1866) ; "Florida and the Game Water Birds"
