Records of the First Reformed Dutch Church of Newtown, Long Island New York Preface & Communicants 1741

The following is a transcription by Peter Divine, July 2001, from LDS Microfilm #17803. This is a microfilm of a typewritten transcript. Newtown, later known as Elmhurst, is now a part of the Borough of Queens in the city of New York.

Notes from Peter Divine:

  1. "do" means "ditto", used in place of re-writing the surname of the previously mentioned individual.
  2. Notes and question marks that I inserted are enclosed in brackets [?].
  3. All other notes and question marks, including those in parentheses (), were found on the microfilm.
  4. The manuscript on the film was partially translated from Dutch to English. I have translated a few additional words such as "widow" and have converted the dates into the modern mm/dd/yy format.
  5. I have carefully used commas as placeholders.

Preface & Communicants 1741
Through the kindness of Dr. Edward Niles, the pastor, the records of the First Reformed Church of Newtown were loaned to the Long Island Collection. This copy has been made under the editorial supervision of the late Richard Gosman DeBevoise. He brought to this task the experience gained through many years work with the genealogy of the early Dutch and English families of New York.

N.B. [Nota Bene]
A.D. 1802
Some of these both Elders & Deacons as well as of the other communicants were probably from the Church of Jamaica, as it was customary in former days and continued so at my settlement as Pastor of the Churches of Newtown and Jamaica, R.D. and for some years afterwards for some of the members of both Churches to commune together whenever the Lords Supper was administred in either Church.

The foregoing record was translated from the Dutch into the English language and the Nota Bene added by Me Jacob Schoonmaker Paster of the Churches of Jamaica and Newtown A.D. 1848.
