The Iroquois called him kora-kowa, "The Great Corlaer" which became a title of honor used for all great leaders. He is called "The founder of Schnectady and Stien Hocke or Watervliet, New York".

Immigrant's Children: BR Frances Jaycocks Born 1618 in Waarwickshire, England. Said to have married Thomas Champion, 1640 in Ashford,Kent, England. Died 1686-1687 in Hempstead, Long Island, New York. Thomas Champion's wife given as Frances Jacocks, "bap 4 Jan 1618 in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire,England" This has been disputed by others. BR Thomas Jaycocks bpt. in Stratford-on-Avon, England 20 March 1619, died at Passayunk (now Philadelphia County) PA before 11 September 1677 leaving widow Ruth. BR William Jacocks bpt. Stratford-on-Avon 12 August 1627. He died in Hempsted, Long Island before 14 December 1694, when his son David referred to his father, deceased. BR Grace Jacocks-she appears on various Hempstead documents BR Other children mentioned in IGI
Notes: Francis Jaycocks (spelled also Jacocks, Gecockes, Jacox, Jecocks and many other ways) was one of the original settlers of Hempstead, Long Island, New York. Emigrating from England, accompanied by sons Thomas and William, and a daughter Frances. Other children remained in England. The earliest mention of Jaycocks in Hempstead that I have found William and Thomas Jaycocks, the sons of Francis, who both appear on the 1657 Hempstead cattle census. Francis owned one of the original lots in Stratford, Fairfield, CT ca 1660, but appears not to have lived there. His early descendants lived in Stratford and New Haven Connecticut, and in North Carolina. By the early 1700s descendants appear in Dutchess County, New York.

Notes: Jacob Jansen came from the town of Etten, six miles from Breda, in the province of North Brabant, Holland and to distinguish him from the numerous other Jansens, according to the usual Dutch custom, he was given the suffix Van Etten. Worked as head farmhand to Aert (Arthur) Pietersen Tack/Tach. Took Jacob Jansen came to America in 1658 or before & Peter Stuyvesant was the Governor of the Dutch Colony of New Netherlands (now New York State). Upon arrival on this continent, Jacob settled at Wiltwyck (now Kingston) on the Hudson River. Oath of Allegiance to England in 1689. Lived in Marbletown, NY. First appears in records as "Van Etten" in 1670 when son Adrian, their third child, was baptised. Marriage record: "1665, 11 Jan. Jacob Jansen, young man of Etten in Brabant and Annetje Arians of Amsterdam, deserted wife of Aert Pietersen Tack, both residing here (in Wiltwyck now Kingston). First publication of Banns, 28 Dec. 1664; second 4 Jan., third 11 Jan. 1665." I have a copy of the article "The Divorce of Annetje Arians" from Olde Ulster, vol. 7, 1911 (Reel #897082, page 207-212) - article refers to Aert T. Tach being accused of bigamy, having a wife in Amsterdam, Holland and Annatje Arians, his first wife, in New York. "On which ground Annenken Ariaens, his first wife, has petitioned your honours for a decree of divorce and permission to marry someone else… Annetje Arians (Annatje) (Adriaensen, Adrians, Gelvins), b. c1632, Amsterdam, Holland. Jacobus died c1693, Hurley (Kingston) Ulster Co, NY, USA. Annetje of Amsterdam: Deserted wife of Aert Pietersen Tach/Tack. Two children by Aert Tack: Cornelius Tack, chr 14 Aug 1661 & Grietze Artze Tack, (Grietjen), chr 16 Aug 1663, Reformed Dutch Church, Kingston, Ulster Co., NY Aert deserted his wife some time between December 12, 1662 and January 23, 1663. His wife, Annetje was carrying her second child at that time. Aert probably returned to Holland, where he married another woman. Annetje was granted a divorce from Aert Tack August 21, 1664 at Fort Amsterdam. Any information on this family would be appreciated. I have a lot of information on the Van Ettens in NY and in Ontario, Canada. I am looking for information on JOSEPH VAN ETTEN b. c1761, NY, USA, bapt 17 Oct 1761, Port Jervis, NY, USA, mar.

Notes: John Woolley and Joseph Woolley were not born in New York state. They may have been born in England prior to emigration, or one or both could have been born in New England. Their father, Robert Woolley first appears to have settled in Fairfield, Connecticuit in 1639 before relocating to Setaukett, L.I. in March of 1649/50, and later relocated to Southampton, L.I. in 1657. His sons John & Joseph remained there until their deaths. Robert & second family, including Robert Jr. are later listed as Etown Associates who drew Westfield Lots (Etown later became Elizabeth, New Jersey) they are Etown founders identified in the Woodruff family history book. Robert Woolley died "intestate" and his estate was settled in Hempstead, L.I. in 1712. (I find it difficult to believe that Robert Woolley actually died intestate because he was a witness listed on many other wills). If he died in New Jersey, he might have had an unfound will there and he might also be buried in the old burying ground of the First Presbyterian Church at 42 Broad Street, Elizabeth, New Jersey.
