Before I begin with my genealogy of the Post Family, let me take a minute to DEBUNK THE MYTH OF THE POST LINEAGE.

Debunking The Post Family Genealogy Myth

Let me DEBUNK THE MYTH of the POST family, and the completely erroneous 'lineage' published in The Genealogical Magazine of New Jersey, Vol. X, No. 1. January 1935, under the title "The Post Families of New Jersey" by Dirk P. De Young.

This article sets forth a completely unsourced and non-viable lineage for Adriaen Crijnen Post. Mr. Young did give more than one disclaimer in his article:

"it [the lineage presented] must be accepted with the usual reservations until documentary proof of the connection is forthcoming"

However, this disclaimer is widely overlooked by researchers, and the suggested lineage has been repeated and sent forth into the genealogical community for so many years that many Post researchers accept it without question.

Let's take a critical look at Mr. Young's theory:

He suggests that Adriaen Crijnen Post was the son of Pieter Adrian's [sic] Post who died in The Hague in 1637. The major flaw in this proposed father for Adriaen is the patronymic of Crijnen which is attached to Adriaen. If he were indeed the son of Peter his patronymic would be Pietersz. (or variations such as Pietersen, Pieterse).

The second flaw is that the author presents no baptismal source to substantiate his proposal. I suspect Young simply found some promising POST names in The Hague area and tried to slot Adriaen into the family.

What we do know is that Adriaen Post, who may have been from The Hague, Netherlands, resided in Brazil in the West India Company's colony with his wife Clara (Claartje) Moockers. Their names are found in the baptism record for Adriaen's daughter Maria who was baptised in Recife Brazil in June 1649. [Source: Doopregister der Hollanders in Brazilie 1633 - 1654] At this baptism Adriaen's patronymic of Crijnen is recorded.

The author of the incorrect lineage, does, in his favour, state very clearly

"That Capt. Adrian Post was a son of Peter Adrian's [sic] Post who died in the Hague in 1637 is inferred only, from circumstances"

This disclaimer is unfortunately overlooked by many Post descendants who continue to use this flawed lineage as if it were fact.

If we look at the author's 'circumstances' for inferring the fatherhood, there are 3 extremely weak arguments:

  1. "Capt. Adrian Post must have been born about 1600"[Lorine's note: "What is his source and/or reasoning???"]
  2. ".. and he came to America from The Hague" [Lorine's comment: That is rather like saying that all people with the name of xxx who lived in any_city, Netherlands are related].
  3. "Moreover according to Dutch custom he was probably named after his grandfather"[Lorine's note: Adriaen is a very common name]

The most glaring flaw in Young's proposed genealogy is that of his suggested grandfather for Adriaen Crijnen Post. Young gives the line as:

"Adrian Pieter's son [sic] Post b. about 1500 as father of Pieter Adrian's son [sic] Post who died in The Hague 1637"

Some mental math will reveal that a man born in 1500 would be pushing the limits to have a son who died in 1637. Assuming an age of 50 for the birth of Adrian Pieter's son, that would make the supposed son, Pieter Adrianse 87 at his death. Yes it is possible (unlikely in my mind) - but Young gives no baptismal records to substantiate his claim.

I think the most revealing flaw (and this in itself should be enough to make the entire proposed genealogy suspect!) is Young's outline of Pieter Post, son of Gerrit, b. ca 1300. The next generation is given as

"__ Post. A generation *assumed*, particulars unknown" (starred word is mine and given for emphasis).

Then Young continues with a Pieter Post born about 1360-75 who he gives as the s/o ____ Post.

Without sources, it is all guesswork. Without sources it is simply bad genealogy and should be discarded as quickly as possible.

And now... on to my article, which is fully sourced:


The Post Family

by Lorine McGinnis Schulze 1998

My 9th great-grandfather, Adriaen Crijnen (possibly Quirijnen), Post was most likely from The Hague, Netherlands. He and his wife Clara or Claartje Moockers, resided in Brazil in the West India Company's colony. Adriaen's daughter Maria (my 8th great-grandmother) was baptised in Recife Brazil in June 1649. By the time Brazil fell to the Portuguese in 1654, the family had left for the Netherlands. On 30 June 1650 the ship "New Netherland's Fortune" sailed, arriving in New Netherland on 19 December 1650.

Adriaen and his family were on Staten Island by 1655. Adriaen was a representative of Baron Hendrick van der Capellen, the owner of one-third of Staten Island. As the superintendent of a group of twenty people who were to farm Staten Island, Adriaen set up a colony which flourished

.

In the summer of 1655 the Peach Tree War began over Hendrick Van Dyke's shooting of a Native woman stealing peaches from his trees in his orchard in Manhatten. As a result, the settlements on the lower Hudson River and around New York were destroyed by Iroquois attackers. On 15 Sept. 1655, the colony on Staten Island was burned to the ground by the Natives from Hackensack. Twenty-three people were killed and sixty-seven taken prisoner, among them Adrien, his wife, five children, and two servants. [Lorine's note: Although this statement about 5 children was taken from Christoph's book, I have not been able to find 5 children born to Adriaen and Clara before 1655. My research indicates Maria, Lysbet and possibly Adriaen were born pre 1655. Can any reader help me solve this puzzle of the two missing children who had to be born BEFORE 1655!!]

In Oct. 1655, Adriaen was released by the Hackensack chief Penneckeck to bargain with Petrus Stuyvessant for the release of prisoners. Adriaen made the journey between Manhattan and the Native headquarters at Paulus Hook, New Jersey several times before an agreement was reached. Fifty-six captives were released in exchange for powder, lead, guns, blankets and wampum. Among those freed were Adrian's wife and children.

Returning to Staten Island Adrian was ordered by Van der Capellan to gather survivors and erect a fort. Trying to keep the group fed, he found a few cattle that the Natives had overlooked roaming in the woods That winter Adrian and his family camped in the company of some soldiers in the burnt-out settlement. They butchered some of the cattle they had found and obtained milk from others. Stuyvessant recommended to Post that he and "his people" and cattle move to the stockade on Long Island but Adrian stayed. By Spring of 1656 Adrian was ill and unable to perform his duties, so Clara Moockers Post requested that someone else be appointed as van der Capellen's agent. In April of 1656 Clara petitioned Stuyvessant asking that the soldiers be allowed to stay, but Stuyvessant decided that since there were only 6 or 7 people on the island, a garrison was not required and they should all move to Long Island.20

Adrian regained his health and between 1657 and 1663 he had three children baptized at the Reformed Church. He was in the New Amsterdam courts often, being sued by creditors of Van Der Cappellen. He eventually left Staten Island and settled on the mainland of present-day Bergen, New Jersey. Fourteen original settlers of the Haqueaqununck [Acquackononk] Tract were

  • Hans DIEDERICKS,
  • Garret GARRETSEN,
  • Walling JACOBS,
  • Elias MICHIELSEN,
  • Hartman MICHIELSEN,
  • Johannes MICHEALSEN,
  • Adriaan POST,
  • Urah TOMASEN,
  • Cornelis ROELOFSEN,
  • Symon JACOBS,
  • John Hendrick SPEARE,
  • Cornelis LUBBERS,
  • Abraham BOOKEY, taking possession in 1683.

On 22 November, 1665, he took the oath of allegiance to the King as an ensign in the Bergen Burgher Guard. In May 1666 New Jersey governor Philip Carterett asked Adrian to be the interpreter at a meeting with the sachem Oraton to discuss a proposed land purchase. In May 1671 he served on a jury at an Admiralty court at Elizabethtown. On 7 June 1673 Adrian was elected one of Bergen's two representatives to the New Jersey General Assembly. In 1675 he was made a Lieutenant in the Bergen Militia. He died and was buried 18 Feb. 1677 in the village of Bergen NJ.

In March 28 of 1679 "Captahem PEETERS, the Native Sachem and Chief, in the prescence and by the aprobation of Memiseraen, Midnenas, Ghonnajea, Natives and Sachems of said Country, and in consideration of a certain parcel of Coates, Blanketts, kettles, Poweder, and other goodes" conveyed the Tract known by the name of Haquequenunk unto Hans DIEDERICKS, Garret GAREETSEN, Waling JACOBS and Hendrick GEORGE.

From "The Records of New Amsterdam From 1653 to 1674" edited by Berthold Fernow:
