A Walloon in New Amsterdam: The Story of Adriaen Vincent and his Wife Madaleen Eloy

Adriaen Vincent and his wife Madaleen were Walloons, meaning French speaking protestants from Belgium, who settled in New Netherland in its early days.

Adriaen was accused in court of being a bigamist and I hoped that research in Amsterdam records would reveal the truth. Thus my search in available Amsterdam records began. Some of the mysteries were solved. Others were not. This book is the result of my Amsterdam research. New facts were found about Adriaen and his wife (including her full name), and the baptisms of children in Amsterdam were discovered. These are fully explained in the book and images of records are provided for interested descendants.

Information about Adriaen and his family in New Amsterdam is also included and I hope that descendants will enjoy their story as much as I enjoyed researching it. The book also straightens out the confusion in two Vincent families - Adriaen Vincent and Francis Vincent (and his siblings). Researchers have confused the two for years and have assigned children to Adriaen that are not his. Proof of family relationships is provided and all sources are footnoted.

It is 94 pages set in the historical context of the early Dutch settlement in New Netherland (now New York). The history of New Netherland, customs, religious practices, and settlement of Fort Orange (Albany) are discussed in depth. An explanation of the patronymic system of naming, the barter system of paying for goods and the English translation of common Dutch words used in church records is also provided.

Hand-drawn maps complete this book which is part of the New Netherland Settlers series.
