Children by Angenietie Gillis Ten Waert
1.Gillis bapt. 18 Sept 1650 New York, NY d. young
2.Jesse bapt. 6 Apr 1653 New York, NY d. young Notes: Jean first appears in the records in Leyden as a student of medicine. He accompanied Jesse De Forest and other Huguenots on a trip to South America to explore sites for a colony in 1623. Jesse De Forest started a journal of the trip which Jean proably completed after Jesse's death in Guiana. Back in Leyden, Jean returned to the university (1626) and roomed with Jesse's widow, Marie Du Cloux. On 12 Dec 1626 he married Jesse's daughter, Rachel. In 1628 they sailed for Tobago. Rachel returned to Leyden in 1631, Jean in 1633. He returned once more to the university. On 25 Sept 1636, the De la Montagnes boarded the "Rensselaerwyck," a ship owned by Rachel's uncle, Gerard De Forest, and Kiliaen Van Rensselaer. After six months, they arrived in New York. Jean established a practice as a physician and a chandler. Rachel's brothers, Henry and Isaac, had a tobacco business. Henry died and Jean took over his end of the enterprise. Kieft appointed Jean to his council. Jean also served on Stuyvesant's council from 1647 to 1655. Rachel died in 1643. On 18 July 1647 Jean asked the council for permission to marry Angenietie Gillis Ten Waert, widow of Arent Corssen Stam, who was lost at sea. Jean was appointed Vice Director of New Netherlands by Stuyvestant with special responsibility for Albany. He served in the post until the English removed him in 1664. He may have accompanied Stuyvestant to Holland the next year to defend the surrender of the colony. It is not known where he died. His son, Jean, stopped using "junior" on his signatures in 1670, so he may have died in that year.

The last record of the couple is when Catherine witnessed the baptism of a granddaughter on 6 Aug 1712 as the wife of Bourgon.

Immigrant's Date & Place of Death: bef. 18 Dec. 1658 Probably New Amsterdam
Immigrant's Spouse: Geertje Hendricks
Source of Information: Church Records, Court Records, George Olin Zabriskie
Immigrant's Children:
1. Tryntje HOPPE, bapt. 10 Sept. 1651 New Amsterdam Reformed Dutch Church, New York. (Witnesses: Jan Van de Bildt, Wyntie Elberts, Rentje Gerrits)
2. Willem HOPPE, bapt. 29 March 1654 New Amsterdam Reformed Dutch Church, New York. (Witnesses: Joris Stephenszen, Stoffel Andrieszen, Cornelis Arentszen, Beelitie Hendricks) Married Meynou Paulus Jurcksen.
3. Hendrick HOPPE/R, bapt. 9 Jan. 1656 New Amsterdam Reformed Dutch Church, New York. (Witnesses: Cornelis Aertszen, Belitje Hendricks) Married 14 March 1680 Marretje Jans VAN BLARCOM Bergen Reformed Dutch Church. (Now Jersey City) Died after 26 September 1737 New Barbadoes, Bergen County, NJ. THIS IS MY LINE.
4. Matthys Adolphus HOPPE, bapt. 3 March 1658 New Amsterdam Reformed Dutch Church, New York. (Witnesses: Lambert Huybertszen Mol, Arie Corneliszen, Christina Harmens, Engeltje Wouters.) Matthys's name is incorrectly transcribed in this baptism as Mattheus Abbertus. Matthys married Anna Paulus Jurcksen

Notes: Andries Willemszen Hoppe/Hoppen is the progenitor of the HOPPER family. Andries was probably in New Netherland as early as 11 July 1651 when two deeds were witnessed by "Andries Hopffa" (his signature) and definitely by 10 Sept. 1651 when his daughter was baptized in New Amsterdam. It is not known when he arrived or from where he emigrated. There seems to be some evidence that the surname Hoppe (Hoppen) existed in Holland. However, we cannot be certain that he was Dutch, as George O. Zabriskie pointed out that their youngest child was named Matthys Adolphus and Adolphus is not a Dutch name, and in typical fashion the child would have born his father's patronymic Andriensen as his middle name. Andries always appears in records with his surname listed as Hoppe or Hoppen and not as many of the Dutch were simply as Andries Willemszen. In fact Willemszen is used only in one church record.

In 1653 or 1656, Andries had been granted the right of "small burgher" of New Amsterdam, which meant he was a citizen entitled to certain privileges, such as the right to trade, or operate a business or practice a profession. From the Court Minutes of New Amsterdam and the Minutes of the Orphanmasters, after his death, it is learned that he was a merchant, trader, and freighter. He died sometime after 25 March 1658 when he appeared in court, and 18 December 1658 when his wife appeared in the Orphanmasters Court. His widow married secondly, Dirck Gerritszen, whose descendants came to be known by the surname VAN DIEN.

Teuntje and her Van Huyse children probably immigrated after Ide died. She married second in New Amsterdam Jacob Hellackers/Swart. She married third Jan Stryker 22 Apr 1687 Flatbush, NY. In 1679, two Labadists, Dankers and Sluyter, who were visiting New Amsterdam, stayed with Teuntje and Jacob Swart. The Labadist described the couple as "the good old people, with whom we lodged, who indeed, if they were not the best on all Manathans, were at least among the best, especially the wife..." The Labadists describe Rebecca and Adriaen Van Schaick's tavern where they met Jan Vigne about whom they wrote that he was "the first male born of Europeans in New Netherlands." Willem they described as "...a carpenter by trade, a little rough and course, but otherwise not an unjust kind of person..."

They immigrated to New Netherlands with their family on the Pummerland Church which left the Netherlands 12 Oct 1662. With their oldest daughter, Maria, they joined the church at New Amsterdam on 1 Apr 1663. They settled in Harlem. In 1663 Isaac commanded a military company that went to the rescue of Wiltwyck (now Kingston, NY) when it was attacked by Esopus Indians. Abraham was killed during this relief operation. In 1666 Isaac was appointed magistrate by the English and served two terms.

Notes: Marritje Sijmons was born 1632 at Amsterdam, the daughter of Sijmon Floriszen and Claertje Arents. Her elder sister Jannetje Sijmons born in 1624 married Evert Evertsen Pels of Stettin Pomerania in 1641 at Amsterdam DRC and was transported by Kiliaen van Rensselaer in 1642 to Rensselaerwyck where Evert Evertsen Pels became the beer brewer. In 1659 Evert Pels redeemed the indenture of his wife's sister Marretje at the previously Swedish colony on the Delaware River. The place and date of her marriage to Jacob Kool is unknown, but is assumed to be Kingston NY. By 1661 their first child was baptized at Kingston DRC, and Evert Pels and wife Jannetje Sijmons were godparents. I would like to know where Sijmon Floriszen was born. He married Claertje arents in 1616 at Amsterdam.

Notes: I am a descendant of Matheus VAN DUSEN and Helena ROBERTS. All of the children were born in Albany, New York.

7.Derick m. Annetje before 1699 Notes: The descendants of Matthys use Van Pelt, Lane, Tyson, and Tice for last names. His children usually used Laenen. Matthys and his family accompanied his brother, Teunis, and his family to America on the Rosenbloom. Matthys' wife died on the voyage and was buried at sea. Matthys remarried soon after his arrival and the family settled on Staten Island. They later moved to Brooklyn, and finally in 1675, to New Utrecht. I cannot determine with certainly the name of Hendrick's wife. At the baptism of her daughter, Mayke, on 23 Apr 1692, Brooklyn Church records give her name as Marritje Vanderbeek. Honeyman says she is Marritje Bennet, widow of Johannes Christoffel Schaers and daughter of Willian Adriaense Bennet. Are they by chance the same person? What was her relation to the wife of Wouter Van Pelt, Mary Johannes Schaers?

Notes: William Thorn/e is considered the progenitor of the Thorn/e family in America. He was a Puritan with Anabaptist leanings, who first arrived in the Massachusetts Bay Colony between 1635 and 1638. He was one of seventeen English families to establish Flushing, Long Island, New York in 1645 and Gravesend in 1643. He was the third signer of the Flushing Remonstrance of 1657. This Remonstrance of 1657 was a petition to the Dutch Governor, Peter Stuyvesant, to lift his ban on religious meetings by Quakers. The real result of this document was that it was used over one hundred years later as the basis for the cornerstone of our current Bill of Rights, the guarantee of religious freedom without fear of persecution.

It is generally believed that William Thorn came from Dorsetshire, but there is no evidence to support this. On 2 May 1638, William was made a Freeman of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, which indicated that he was a landowner and a man of at least modest means. He was a man of tremendous political and relious convictions, which led him to be at odds with the status quo from the outset. Both William and his wife, Susannah were buried in the Quaker Cemetery, Flushing, Long Island, New York.
