This is a full text transcription of the well known genealogical resource
enumerating many of the early colonists, and their families, of Kings County, N.Y.
To the best of my knowledge, this is the ONLY transcript of this important resource.
On the internet I have found two sites presenting scanned images of this book.
The 'Google' source is flawed with two pages totally missing.  I do plan to

PREFACE.
	HAVING in my researches among the ancient and musty
records and papers in possession of the old families of King’s
County (who have kindly favored me with the use of the same),
gathered much genealogical and other information worthy of
preservation and of use to future genealogists and historians,
I take this method of endeavoring to effect that object, and
of preserving the same for the use of the public, hoping that
it will prove acceptable. To make the work more complete,
the records of the state, county, towns, and churches have
been carefully examined, and the name of every resident,
and of landholders not resident therein found, inserted.
That the work is so perfect as to contain the names of all
such, the names of all their children, with correct dates in
all cases, is not pretended, but an honest effort has been made
to effect this object. Surnames and names of parents are in
many cases enclosed in brackets.

     ! Throughout this work the second name inserted of an individual is the
name of his father, as “Abel Stoffel Jansen” represents Abel the son of
Stoffel Jansen, or Abel Jansen, son of Stoffel Jansen. At the period of
the early settlement of this country it was customary for individuals to add
to their names that of their father, and omitting their surnames (many
had none). On these pages the compiler has affixed to the names of
individuals the names of their fathers, although in many cases not used
by said individuals, for the purpose of aiding in identifying persons.

a patent Apl. 5, 1642. This deed bears date prior to Besch-
er's patent, land at that period being often occupied and
rights disposed of prior to dates of patents. In Bescher's

Cornelise Smit," and in Gov. Kieft's patent to Cool they
are bounded on the N. by land of "Jan Pietersen." This
patent appears to include the farms late of Peter and John
Wyckoff, Henry Story, and Winant Bennet on Butts' map

   The following curious entry is copied from Lib. 3 of Gd
rec.: "The record of mee James Hubbard: To Certifie
mine or any other of his brethren William: John: Henry &
Margret wth him selve ye youngest of leaven sonns &
Dafters: yet butt five known of here, of our father Henry

	Allowing 30 years for a generation, this would carry the
genealogy of the family back over 4000 years, or to about
the time of Noah's flood. If there is any foundation for the
123 generations, the inference would be that the ancestors
of the Hubbard's were Jews, for they alone through the
Bible trace from Noah to the days of our Saviour, and are
the only race who could be supposed to make a pretence of
tracing from that period to the present time. There was a
James Hubbard, ag. 27, who emigrated from London to St
Christopher's in 1635, as per p. 80 of Hotten's Emigrants.

end of L. I., lying within the present bounds of N. U. and

dated May 27, 1643. Feb. 9, 1660, he sold his patent to
Nicholas Stillwell for 1600 gl. and the fee of plantation-lot
No. 29 in Gd, with the buildings and improvements thereon,
which plantation-lot Anthony sold Dec. 1669 to Fernandus
Van Sickelen, his son-in-law. After this he appears to have
removed back to N. A., where he died. Anthony's patent
during this period was known as "Turk's plantation," from
his being designated as "Turk" on some of the old records.
Stillwell sold said patent Feb. 28, 1664, to Francois de
Bruynne, after whom it was called Bruynnsberg. June 4,
1665, De Bruynne sold a part of the patent located on the
main road from the village of N. U. to Gd, and on the old
Bath road or lane, to Jan Janse Ver Ryne. Dec. 10, 1678,

ney, to Barent Joosten and Jan Hansen (Van Noortstrand).

12, 1702-3, Barent Joosten of N. U. sold to said Albert Coer-
ten his one half of the same, as per p. 261 of said Lib. 2, thus
making Albert the sole owner of the whole of the patent,
except the part sold to Ver Ryne. May 9, 1747, Albert
Coerten conveyed to his son Coert Voorhies, and Oct. 5,
1756, Coert conveyed to his sons Coert and Barnardus said
premises. In 1879, in levelling the sand-dunes on the up-
land on the edge of the bay a little S.E. of the buildings of
Mr. Gunther at Locust Grove, which dunes had been blown
up from the beach, and which had been gradually extending
back with the abrasion of the shore or coast, the remains
of two separate pieces of stone wall about 2 ft. high and 1
ft. wide, made mainly of unbroken fleld-stones laid in clay
mortar, with a clay floor between them, were exhumed.
These remains were covered with from 4 to 10 ft. of sand,
and are probably those of the barn or other farm buildings
of Anthony Jansen, it being customary in the early settle-
ment of this country to construct their threshing-floors of
clay, of which specimens existed and were in use in this
country in the younger days of the author, their roofs being
made of thatched straw instead of shingles, as at present.

MODY or MOODY, LADY DEBORAH, (dau. of Walter Dunch
of England and wid. of Sir Henry Mody,) and her associates,
to avoid persecution in Massachusetts and New England, left
said locality and came to New Netherlands, settling in 1643 in
Gd among the more tolerant Hollanders. In Oct. of that year
she and her settlers were driven off by the Indians to Amers-
foort (Flds), where they remained to the end of the Indian war
and then returned to Gd. Her name, with that of Sir Henry
Mody her s., Ensign George Baxter, and Serjeant James Hub-
bard, appears on the patent of Gd of Dec. 10, 1645, and in 1646,
on the laying out of the plantation-lots, she was allotted a
bouwery. She appears to have owned and occupied a farm ad-
joining that of Robert Pennoyer, since of Van Brunt Magaw and
late of Judge Samuel Smith, and, as near as can be ascertained,
covering the farms late of Jacobus Lake and that late of Der-
ick Stryker. Nov. 22, 1648, she let all her "broken up"
(cleared) land, excepting one piece she reserved for her own
use, for 3 years to "Thos. Cornewill," she furnishing him with
4 oxen and 4 cows; he to pay 10 skipples of wheat per annum
rent for the land and 60 gl. per annum for the use of the ani-
mals. A dispute having arisen between her and her tenant
about the "breaking up" (clearing) a piece of land, and left to
arbitrators, they decided May 5, 1650, that Cornewill should
be allowed to crop the land next year, and that she should pay
him 15 gl. on the surrender of the same, as per Gd rec. She
-p. 208
d. in 1659, and there is a tradition that she was buried in the
burying-ground in said village, with a common small field-
boulder at the head of the grave to mark the same.
By an agreement entered into at "Amersfoort" while Lady
Mody and her associates were located there during the Indian
war, as per Lib. 2 of Gd rec., it was concluded that in the set-
tlement of Gd each associate should be accommodated with a
certain quantity of land within a certain fence to be erected,
which said land should be divided into 28 shares or parts, each
to receive a part and also a building-plot. Under this in 1646
plantation-lots were granted to
	Richard Gibbons,        John Ellice,
	Cornelius Swellinant,   John Tilton,
	John Morrice,           William Wilkins,
	Edward Browce,          Richard Uzell,
	Lady Deborah Mody,      Thomas Cornish,
	Serjeant James Hubbard, Thomas Spicer,
	Lieut. Baxter,          Ambrose London,
	John Ruckman,           (2 names illegible,)
	William Browne,         William Thorne.
Of the "certain fence" referred to, each of the above-named
persons was required in Dec. 1646 to keep 20 poles, and in
addition the following persons, who had had plantation-lots
assigned them, were also required to keep 20 poles of said
fence, viz.:
	Jamess Grover,      Rodger Scott,
	Ralph Cardell,      Robert Pennoyer,
	Richard Stout,      James Ellice,
	Thomas Applegate,   Thomas Greedy.
	Henry (s. of Lady Mody), b. 1606. His name appears on
Gov. Kieft's patent of Gd of 1645, to which place he probably
came with his mother. May 11, 1659, as heir of his dec.
mother, he sold a double lot with buildings, known as Nos. 9
and 10, (she having a patent for the same from Director or Gov.
Kieft,) to Jan Jansen Ver Ryn for the use of his s. Abraham
Jansen Ver Ryn, as per Gd rec. Litigation occurred between
Mody and Ver Ryn about the payments for these premises.
Sept. 6, 1660, he sold John Bowne the plantation and build-
ings which previously belonged to Edward Brouse, known as
No. 24, as per Gd rec. After this he appears to have left Gd
and settled in Va., where he died at the house of Col. Mowrit-
son. Signed his name "Henry Mody."

gate and of N. A. was the father of Adriaen Andries, and
there is some reason to suppose that the Andries Andriese
the Swede was the same person. Issue:- Andries (or An-

other by inlets or guts now closed. The westernmost one
was known as Coney I., the middle one as Pine I., and the
easternmost one as Gisbert's or Gysberts I., so named after
Gisbert Opdyck. At a later period the easternmost one was
also known as Johnson's I., from Barent and William John-
son at one period owning the tillable land (about 60 A.) on
the same. About 1670 the inhabitants of Gd at a town

PENEWITS, THOMAS. His name appears on a remonstrance

trary government, as per p. 171 of Wood's L. I.
PENNOYER, ROBERT, of N. A. as early as 1642, and among
the early settlers of Gd in 1643, where he obtained a patent
from Gov. Kieft for 80 morgens dated Nov. 29, 1645, lying
between the land of Lady Mody and that of Anthony Jan-
sen from Salee, for which patent there was an agreement
of sale dated Apl. 1, 1653, by Wm Goulding as his attorney,
to Arent Van Hattem, as per p. 371 of Cal. of Dutch Man.,
but of which the papers do not appear to have been signed.
In addition to this patent, he appears to have owned other
-p. 223
lands in Gd (his patent being outside the original boundary
of the town), for in Sept. 1647, John Ruckman and Richard
Uzell bought of Roger Scott a plantation formerly of Rob-

James Hubbard & my selfe did bestowe on ye town of
Gravesende & was hired yearly as by there Records bear-
ing date ye 7th December 1653," etc. This abstract from
the Gd rec. appears to refer to Pennoyor's original patent
obtained from Gov. Kieft, which patent, judging from the
letter of Gov. Stuyvesant to Lady Mody referred to on p.
141 of the Cal. of Dutch Man., he sold prior to Sept. 3,
1654. He made his mark to documents, and probably left
descendants.

* It is claimed by some of the Schenck family that Jan and Roelof
Martense Schenck are sons of Marten Schenck of Nydack or Nydeggen,
a town about 18 miles southeast from Aix-la-Chapelle; that Marten's
father was Peter Schenck of Nydack, b. in 1547 at Goch, a small town
about 10 miles south of Cleves, m. in 1580 Johanna Scherpenzeel; and
that this Peter was a brother of the celebrated Marten Schenck, a soldier
of fortune and an officer of distinction in the wars of the Low Countries.
Without the evidence which has been gathered in Holland of the genealo-
gy of the family, the name would imply a relationship to the soldier and
warrior, but it is singular, if this account is correct, that the name of
Peter does not appear in the family until the fourth generation, when it
is well known that it was the custom of the Netherlanders to perpetuate
the names of their ancestors, which custom prevails among many of their
descendants in this country to this day. These Schencks, according to
tradition, owned vessels which traded with the Netherlands, which often,
by way of Rockaway Inlet, came into Flatlands or Jamaica Bay to de-
liver or receive goods from their owners.
	There was a "Wessel Schenck" among the members of the company
chartered Oct. 11, 1614, for an exclusive trade of three years with the
New Netherlands, as per p. 149 of Vol. I. of Doc. of Col. His.

North Holland in the Netherlands; and New Lotts as "Oostwoud," from
a village of that name near "Midwoud." The other towns in Kings Co.
(except Bushwick) being named by the first settlers after the localities in
the fatherland from which some of them came, the inference appears to
be a fair one that it was also the case with Flatbush, especially since at
least one of its early settlers came from Hauwert or Hoogwoud, a village
in the vicinity of "Midwoud" and "Oostwoud." The earliest document
on which Flatbush is designated as Midwout, which has come to the
notice of the compiler, is on a grant of land to Jacob Corlaer of Oct. 7,
1652, on p. 129 of Cal. of Dutch His. Man. The name on the early
colonial and town records is generally written "Midwout." The princi-
pal exceptions, caused by the peculiar methods of spelling of different
town-clerks and others, are that from 1660 to 1680 it appears on the town
records as "Midewout," "Midwoudt," "Middewout," "Middwout,"
"Middelwoudt," "Middlewout," and "Midelwout;" from 1700 to 1712
as "Midwoud;" afterwards as "Midwout" (with the exception of 1760,
in which year at least in one case Jeremias Vanderbilt, the town-clerk,
wrote it "Midderwout "). See pp. 30 and 71 of Lib. A of Flh town rec.;
pp. 4, 8 1/2, 17, 19, 30, 31, 42, 43, 45, 49, and 79 of Lib. B; and p. 115 of
Lib. AA of do. From about the period of the Revolutionary war the
town has been known as "Flatbush," the former name having been
dropped. The name "Flatbush" was, however, occasionally used at an
early date; as an instance, it appears on a deed of Nov. 24, 1654, of Dirck
Jansen to Cors Van Ruyven, of premises "in Flatbush, otherwise called
Midwout," as per p. 58 of said Cal. of Dutch Man. The name of
"Vlachte Bos" and "Flackebos," the Dutch for flat woods or level woods,
was also occasionally used.

	Nicholas, the emigrant and ancestor of the Stillwells of
this vicinity (English), came to this country about 1638
from Holland, and settled at first on Manhattan I. He m.
1st Abagail dau. of Robert Hopton; m. 2d Ann Van Dyke
of Holland; d. Dec. 22, 1671, at Dover, S. I. His wid. m.
2d Wm Wilkins. In 1639 he located a tobacco plantation on
Manhattan I., and in 1643 purchased a house and lot on the
present Beaver St. in N. A. When the Lady Mody in 1643,
accompanied by several Englishmen from Massachusetts,
undertook the settlement of Gd ("Graoenzande"), he with
other Englishmen who had previously settled on Manhat-
tan I. joined her and took up lots in the new settlement.
In the Indian war which took place shortly after the com-
mencement of the settlement, and caused its temporary
abandonment, as Lieut. Stillwell he defended the place, and
afterwards appears to have returned to N. A. In 1648 he
bought of Richard Dunn the village lot in Gd which Dunn
had bought of Ralph Cardell, this being the first account
of his owning land in said town after its abandonment
during the Indian war, his name not appearing among the
associates who in 1646, '47, and '48 were allotted plantation-
lots of 50 A. Oct. 6, 1649, he bought of George Homes, for
his s. Richard, Homes's plantation-lot, for which he agreed
to pay 900 lb. of good merchantable tobacco. This planta-
tion he agreed Oct. 10, 1650, to sell to Richard Cluffe for
the use of Thomas Doxsey. By O'Callaghan's Register he
was a mag. of Gd in 1650 and '51, a mag. of Flds in 1654
and '55, where he probably resided at that date, and a mag.
of Gd in 1657 and '64. Dec. 27, 1657, he sold to John
Bowne 12 A. lying on the "Cellers Neck" (Sellers Neck),
being part of plantation-lot No. 40, which lot No. 40 he
bought Aug. 25, 1654, of the agent of William Hallet. Aug.
29, 1659, he sold John Wilson a part of plantation-lot No.
40 - all as per Gd rec. Feb. 9, 1660, he bought of Anthony
Jansen from Salee his patent of 100 morgens. Apl. 2, 1660,
he sold to Richard Aste 12 A. of the E. end of the planta-
tion he bought of Anthony Johnson, as per Gd rec. Jan. 15,
1663, he sold to Mr. Francoys de Bruynne, for 700 gl. in
wampum, the balance of said plantation; reasonable satis-
faction to be made by said Francoys to "my son in law
Nathaniell Brittanie at or upon the 25th of March next for
the house and housing which hee the said Nathaniell built
upon said land." All the above Gd and N. U. purchases

Stillwell is entitled to credit for never swerving from his
allegiance to the Dutch government, which is more than
can be said of many of his English neighbors, who, on what
they supposed to be the first favorable opportunity, proved
themselves to be traitors to the colony to which they fled
from persecution, and to which they were indebted for pro-
tection and the enjoyment of religious liberty. In 1663 he
was an ensign in the Esopus expedition against the In-
dians, and the same year commissioned as lieut., as per Col.
Man. He finally removed to Dover, S. I., where he d. Dec.
22, 1671, his will being da. Dec. 22, 1671; pro. June 17, 1672;
and rec. p. 161, Lib. 1, N. Y. surr. off. His wid., Ann Still-
well of Dover, bought June 21, 1672, of Jan Jansen Ver
Rhyn plantation-lot No. 18, with the buildings in Gd, as per
town rec. Issue by 1st w., as per Memoirs of Stillwell
Family:- Richard, b. 1634; Nicholas 2d, b. 1636; (by 2d w.)

Elias. Made his mark to manuscripts with a bungling
reversed "N," in no manner resembling that which would
be made by a scholar with his left hand, who had had the
misfortune of losing his right one as has been claimed.
Dr. J. E. Stillwell of N. Y., in behalf of the claim that
Nicholas made his mark in consequence of the loss of his
right arm, has exhibited to the compiler of this work an
original and genuine document (stating that he had seen
another) on which his name was subscribed in full in a good
and legible hand. Against this evidence are documents of
a prior date, with numerous ones later, with the bungling
mark, from which it may fairly be inferred that the name
on the document exhibited had been written by some other
person at Nicholas's request, as is occasionally done at the
present day.

on tradition, on p. 76, etc., of said Vol., of the shipwreck of a
Dutch ship on Sandy Hook; of the crew and passengers
leaving a sick young Dutchman and his wife there while
they went for relief; of the Indians tomahawking the man,
mangling the wife and leaving her for dead; of her recover-
ing and crawling into a hollow log and subsisting for several
days on berries, and then being discovered and taken pris-
oner and her life preserved by an old Indian, ransomed by
the Dutch of N. Y., where she married Richard Stout, being
at the time in her 22d year and he in his 40th. They settled
at Middletown, where the old Indian often visited her, and
on one occasion, by informing her of a plot to massacre the
-p. 287
whites, put them on their guard and saved the settlement
from destruction. This woman, whose maiden name was
Penelope Van Prince, lived to the age of 110 years, her pos-
terity numbering 502 at the time of her death. The com-
piler gives this tradition as he finds it, having little
faith therein. Issue (per Rev. G. C. Schenck):- John;
Richard; Jonathan; Peter; James; Benjamin; David; De-
liverance; Sarah; and Penelope, whose descendants are

'82, as per p. 109 of Strong's Flh. In Jan. 1669 (as per p. 157
of Lib. D. of Flh rec.) he appears to have been in possession
of the school-lot and premises of that town, for on that date

hoff) encroaching on the premises. There being an agreement
entered into Dec. 25, 1666, N. S., with a schoolmaster and

bout, and that he commenced his services at Christmas 1666,
continuing them until about Nov. 15 1670, 0. S., when Jacob
Joosten commenced, and was succeeded by Jan Gerretse Van
Marcken, who was discharged Mar. 2, 1681. Nov. 4, 1681, Jan

of allegiance in said town, of which place he was a mag. in
1687 and '88, and justice of the peace in 1689 and '90. From
this it is evident that the old Van Duyn house, in which it
is supposed he resided and which was demolished a few

pears from an affidavit made by Gerrit Gerritse and Geesje his
-p. 341
w. before Justice Joseph Hegeman at Flh on the Oct. 26,
1696, as per p. 227 of Lib. A of Flh rec.
VAN GIESEN, REYNIER BASTIAENSEN, probably from Gies-

teach school, perform the duties of court messenger, to ring
the bell, keep the church in order, perform the duties of
precentor, attend to the burial of the dead, and all that was
necessary and proper in the premises, for an annual salary
of 200 florens exclusive of perquisites. This agreement was
signed by Adriaen Hegeman, Willem Jacobse Van Boerum,
Elbert Elbertsen, Jan Snediker, Jan Strycker, and Pieter
Cornelise, probably as mag. of Flh and Flds, and by Johannes
Theodorus Polhemius, Jan Snediker, Jan Strycker, and

on the one part, and by Reinier Van Giesen (omitting the
"Bastiaensen" which is inserted in the body of the instru-
ment), of the other part, for which see p. 24 of Lib. B of Flh
rec. Strong on p. 109 of his History of Flh places Adriaen
Hegeman as the first schoolmaster of the town, and as serv-
ing from 1659 to '71, omitting Van Giesen from his list. The
above agreement shows this to be an error; and that Van
Giesen was probably the first schoolmaster. Jan. 6, 1663,
he sold to Jan Strycker a house and lot in Flh, styling him-
self in the deed "court attendant," as per p. 117 of Lib. B
of Flh rec. He probably finally removed to Bergen, N. J.,

found a Rynier Michealse prior to 1713, and who was prob-
ably a s. of the schoolmaster. Issue:- Jacob, bp. Jan. 16,

May 1, 1667, on condition that the lessor during said term
clear 3 morgens of land and enclose the same in a post and
5-rail fence, for which the lessor is to do the carting; the
lessee with his neighbor to fence in the meadows at the cost
of the lessor; the lessor to furnish and let to the lessee 2
milch-cows, of which he is to be entitled to one half of the
increase and 16 lbs. of butter annually for each cow; also
10 sheep, of which he is to be entitled to one half of the in-
crease and wool, following the custom of the country. If
after the lessee has been a year on the land he finds it
necessary to have a pair of draught oxen, the lessor to fur-
nish them, for which a reasonable compensation to be given.
If the lessee in the last year of the term sows any of the land

2 sows, for which he is to be annually entitled to one half
of the increase. The lessor sells to the lessee a canoe, for

purchase at the market price in preference to his selling to
others. If it occurs that the lessor during the continuance

reside on the premises, if not damaging to the lessee, the
lessor to be entitled so to do. The above is a translation of
the main part of the record in Dutch of this lease, as
recorded on p. 91 of Lib. D of Flh rec., and is given as a
specimen of an ancient lease showing the customs of the
times. The plantation referred to is the one occupied by.
