NAME: [GB39] Although sometimes spelled de Jong or D’Jong, it is almost always spelled De Jongh in judicial archives and as signatures. This is true in extracted documents from old family wills preserved in Gorinchem, a few miles from Herwijnen, where the family name was almost invariably spelled De Jongh. The name Adrian is also found in practically all branches of the family, and records in Gorinchem reveal “Adrian De Jonghs” earlier even than Herwijnen.

HX: [GB39] I have tried in vain to trace the origin of this De Jongh family back to the De Jonghs of Ghent and Bruges, where the arms were registered as early as 1280, one of the patrician families in Flanders. It is my belief, however, that we do spring from that origin, where the letter “h” in our name had its origin. The families of the name of Holland origin rarely used the letter “h”. In Herwijnen, and elsewhere, these De Jonghs generally held official positions where they resided.

NOTE 28752-Adrien De Jongh

[GB39] On 11 January 1631 Adriaen Evertsen GROOT, heir of Jan Adriensen GROOT, conveyed land in Herwijnen to Adrian Adriensen Joriszoon De JONGH-Adrian, son of 28572-Adrien, son of 57488-Joris, son of 114976-Adrian De JONGH, which again throws the De JONGH ancestry of that locality back to Adrian De JONGH born not later than 1500.

On 26 April 1632 Joris Adriensen De JONGH made a conveyance of land in Herwijnen, and gave as security for the contract his interest in the estate of his grandfather, Joris Ariensen De JONGH; this document proves that the conveyor above was, as early as 1632, in Herwijnen, had a great grandfather Adrian De JONGH, who must have been born about 1500 or earlier, and who was probably the great great grandfather of Wilhelmina Ariens De JONGH

NOTE 3594-Adrian Meertomen

[GB39] On 3 March 1660 Alert Hymensen ROOSA, living in Herwijnen, conveyed in Hellouw in the seventeenth century half of a tract of land as yet undivided between the heirs of Govert Ariensen De JONGH, in Hellouw (a mile or so from Herwijnen), and again he pledged his interest in the estate of the late Arien Meertensen De JONGH as security for the fulfillment of the contract; it is further proof that the wife of Alert or Aldert Hymensen ROOSA was the daughter of Arien Meertensen De JONGH; the De JONGH family owned large fowler preserves

NOTE 3594/3595-2 Arien Ariensen De Jongh

[GB39] on 29 June 1664 conveyed land in Herwijen to Peter Jans BEUSCHEM, by virtue of power of attorney given him by Alert Hymensen ROOSA

{1796-Aldert Heymans Roosa} on 28 February 1660 and the security given to bind the transaction was Alert Hymensen’s interest in the estate of the late Arien Meertensen De JONGH {3594-Adrien} to assure the buyer that any taxes on the same back as far as 1626 would be paid; 3594-Adrien was the owner of land as early as 1626 [GB41] Martin Adriaen de JONGH, son of Adriaen de JONGH and Josanna TROS, bap. 19 May 1707 in Zalt Bommel, Netherlands (in the immediate neighborhood of Herwynen)-this is branch of same family as Wyntje Ariens de JONGH; Coat of arms (no crest) showing a saltire between 4 marlets (pictured in article), probably used by Adriaen de JONGH in his capacity of a schepen and might conceivably been used by the brother of Wyntje of that name who was a schepen and burgomaster of Herwynen.

[GB39] A grandson of Adrian Meertensen De JONGH, the father of Wilhelmina De JONGH, namely Dominus (Reverend) Martinus Adrianuse De JONGH, born in 1704, became a very noted Dutch Reformed minister and was the minister of the Dutch church in London for many yaers, and a son, a grandson and a great grandson were all great preachers in their day

[GB41] Family fled on account of religeous persecution from the town of Roosa in Spain-this pedigree originated at a time when the majority of the Dutch families preferred a descent from foreign lands rather than acknowledge their less illustrious hard-working Dutch forebears who by their industry had made their more opulent descendents ancestor-conscious, and thus this must be questioned, and rather family possibly was originally named de Roos, which had lived for many generations at Herwynen

[NYSo] Roosa: This is a very old Dutch family, early identified with the history of Southern New York, and still has numerous representatives scattered all over the region. It appears very early in the settlement of Kingston, and Ulster County owes much of its development and progress to the industry, intelligence and enterprise of this family.

[UCBR] Biography of Hyman Roosa, M.D.S.

Albert Heymansse, farmer, with wife Weyntjen Ariens came from Herwijnen, Gelderland, Holland with their eight children, ages two to seventeen, in the “Bunta Koe” (“Spotted Cow”); settled in Esopus township, Ulster County, which then embraced Kingston and Hurley; died 27 February 1679; appointed one of the three Schepens by Governor Stuyvesant, who gave the name to Wiltwyck; elder of old Dutch Church of Kingston; large man posessed of great energy and magnetic power which made him both heard and felt in the councils of leading men of the community; ten children [EASc]

Came to America in 1660 with his parents

[KiHx] p 485 Albert Heymans, from Gelderland, is registered as having sailed in April 1660 in the ship the Spotted Cow with his wife Wyntje Ariens and eight children; settled in Esopus, assumed the name Roosa and became the ancestors of the Roosa families in the vicinity

p 27 Evert Pels, Cornelis Barentse Slecht and Elbert Hymans Roose were by charter designated as the first board of schepens

[GB41] Aeldert Heymans Roosa, b. 1621, from Herwynen, arrived 1660 with wife Wyntje Ariens de Jongh;

[DPHG] original emigrant Aldert Hymanse came with wife Wyntje Ariense and six children in 1660 from Gelderland, Holland in the “Spotted Cow” and settled at Hurley, Ulster County, NY; built a residence that stood until 1885 where some of their descendents still reside

[FILB] Arrived New Netherlands 1620-1664 Ref 9135 page 10

NOTE 1796-Albert (continued)

[OU12] from Harwyen, also spelled Herweyen, in Gelderland, Holland on Waal River, five miles from Bommel. Or it may be the present Heywennen, a short distence east of Bommel in Gelderland or the present Herwen in Gelderland twelve miles southwest of Arnhem; with him came his wife Wyntje (Lavinia) Allard or Ariens and eight children (Heyman, Arie, Jan, Ikee/Aaghe, Maritje, Neeltje, Jannetje, Aert) in the ship “Bontekoe” (Spotted Cow), Captain Peter Lucas, April 15, 1660; settled in Wildwyck, district of Esopus, now Kingston, Ulster County, New York.

From the fact that in Gelderland at the present time the language of its people is interspersed with Spanish words and idioms it has been supposed that many religeous refugees from Spain during the first years of the Inquisition settled in this particular Province of Holland, among whom may have been ascestors of Albert Heymanse; if so this can account for the spelling of the name, by the Hollanders- Roose- which then would produce the same sound as Rosa, his name in Spanish

On December 25, 1660 with wife, Anna Blom, Jacob Joosten, Jacob Burhans, Mathias Blanchan and wife, Anton Crespel and wife, Andries Barentse and wife, Margaret Chambers, Gertruy Andries, Roelof Swartwout and wife and Cornelise Sleght and wife participated in first administration of Lord’s Supper at the Esopus or Wildwyck.

Aldert Heymanse Roosa was a wealthy man for those days, bringing with him considerable property from Holland; sreedily occupied an influential position in the early making of Kingston. On 4 March he joined other in a contract guarenteeing the salary of Rev. Hermanus Blom, who had been called as pastor of the Dutch Church at Wildwyck; (see Col. Hist N.Y. Vol XIII

pp 130-194)

Of this church he was for many years an elder; and because of the energy with which Domine Blom and he sought to conserve the surplus of the estates of deceased persons for the benefit of the poor of the village he was sometimes called “the Consistory” pf the church (Court Proceedings of Wildwyck publ by NY State hist. Assn; Col Hist. NY Vol VIII, pp 311 and 318)

On 5 May 1661 appointed commissary at Wildwyck (with Evert Pels and Cornelis Barentse Sleght) and took their oath of office and on 16 May 1661, these three were named schepens by Peter Stuyvesant; New lots laid out at Wildwyck AH being alloted # 24 and his son Jan #30

On 6 April 1662 permission was given to lay out a new village at the Esopus, called Nieuw Dorp, now Hurley, at which place his sons-in-law Anthony Crespel and Louis DuBois settled the same year. Immediately after this warnings were received and sent to New Amsterdam of pending troubles with the Indians at the Esopus (see Col. Hist N.Y. Vol XIII pp 227-228)

On 11 October 1662 AH was commissioned to proceed to New Amsterdam to obtain 100 pounds of Powder and 200 pounds of lead for the protection of the old and new settlements [from the Indians] (see Col. Hist N.Y. Vol XIII pp 227-228)

Aldert Heymanse must have been among of the earliest settlers of the new village because on 30 March 1663 he, Jan Joosten and Jan Garretsen were appointed to lay out and fortify the new village with palisades for protection against the savages (Sylvester’s Hist Ulster County, p 36)

[OU12] On 7 April 1663 Aldert Heymanse and fellow commissaries reported to Governor that savages would not allow the building of palisades or fortifications because land was not included in treaty of 1660 and had not been fully paid for; and praying that the gifts promised to the savages the previous autumn be sent at once and that the new place and village be assisted with a few soldiers and ammunition, at least until the new settlement should be put into a proper state of defense and inhabited by a good number of people on 7 June 1663 Indians attacked New Village and Wildwyck, burning 12 dwellings, killing 18 persons, and carring away 10 persons from Wildwyck and New Village was burned to the ground with most of the inhabitants taken prisoner (including 2 children of AH) or killed-only a few escaped including Roosa, Blanchan, Crespel and DuBois; martial law was declared and AH appointed one of the commissaries as well as being a corporal of the Burgher Guard;

History of Albany NY

[AANY] Although French traders were in the area in the mid 1500’s, it wasn’t until 1609 that Dutch fur traders arrived and established a trading center and a fort. The first permanent settlement was founded in 1624 by 18 Walloon families, French Protestants who left the Spanish Netherlands seeking religeous freedom. The settlement was called Beverwyck until it was transferred to the English and renamed in honor of the Duke of York and Albany.

NOTE 3598-Symon Symorse Groat (continued)

[ACHx] p 294-295

The sagacity of the Dutch settlers is shown in their selection of lands, and the tenacity with which they held possession of them. They rarelyoccupied the hills. Their native Holland was a flat country, abundant in water, lying by the sea, and traversed by rivers and canals. The early colonists planted their homes, usually upon level tracts, upon the rich aluvium of the Hudson River, or other streams that ran into it. These they were apt to leave to their heirs.

List of patents of lands located in or near Albany County by the Dutch Government from 1630-1634:includes many names including Kiliaen Rensselaer 1631-1649 (large tracts, most of others are lots only) Jan Michelesen 1650, many in 1652-1653 including Thomas Chambers 1653, fewer in 1654-1664. Of note are:

Cornelis Teunissen a lot in Beverwyck 23 April 1652

Symon Symonz Groot, a lot, Beverwyck, May 11, 1663

[SPHx] p 25 signed the Indian Deed and First Patent For the Township (of Schenectady) in Albany on 10 October 1702

p 80 The situation of this (Fonda’s) Island is best described in the patent to Simon Simonse Groot, of date Aug. 9, 1694, “to confirm to him a small island in the Mohawk river within the town of Schenectady posessed by him for twenty-seven years, to wit, a certain small island in the Mohawk river lying to the north of the Hoek, or point of Reyer Jacobsen’s [Schermerhorn], and to the southward of the island belonging to Joris Aertsen [now Guise’s] and to the westward of the island lately belonging to Sweer Teunise deceased,-containing five morgans or ten acres.

p 120 came to New Netherland ca. 1645, as boatswain of the ship Prince Maurits, and purchased a house of Jacob Roy in New Amsterdam; about 10 years later became a resident of Beverwyck where he purchased a house lot and remained until 1663, when he hired a bouwery of 25 or 30 morgans at Schenectady of Gerrit Bancker and Harmen Vedder (The lease ran for 6years at a rent of 500 guilders and included with the land, a dwelling house, barn, ricks, six draft horses including a mare, six milch cows, two sows, etc.

p 120 sons Symon, Abraham, Philip, Dirk and Claas captured by the French and Indians, and taken to Canada; the following year they were redeemed.

p 120 home lot in the village, was on the northerly side of Union Street 100 feet westerly from Church Street; fifty feet front and extending through to Front Street more than 400 feet; it remained in the family several generations (Deeds III: 324)

p 120 In 1654 he had a claim against the Dutch West Indies Co for services rendered of 684 guilders (see Deeds II: 43, Albany Co Records 207). 1659, owned a lot in Beverwyck next south of Uldrick Kleyn’s (Albany Co Records

268). 1659, offerred same for sale-size 4 rods x 7 1/2 rods, house 20 sq. ft (Albany Co Records 274). 1660 had a lot south of Pieter Vrooman’s on the Third kil, Albany (Albany Co Records 283). 1662 proposing to remove to Esopus he empowered Jan Withart to sell his house and lot in Beverwyck

(Not. Papers I: 79, 271). 1667, 2 may he had a patent for a lot without the town which passed into the possession of Jan Withart (Albany Co Records 145)

NOTE 3598-Symon Symorse Groat (continued)

[ScFS] p 80-81 Symon Symonse Groot, the first settler (of Patent and City of Schenectady) came early to New Netherlands in the service of the West Indies Company, as a boatswain of the ship Prince Maurice. In 1645 he bought a house and lot of Jacob Roy, in New Amsterdam. Soon after he came to Beverwyck, where he purchased or built a house, which in 1654 he offerred for sale. He had lately withdrawn from the service of the West Indies Company, against whom he then held a claim for services of 834 guilders. In 1662 being about to remove to the Esopus, he empowered Johannes Withart to sell his house and lot; but it is evident that he changed his purpose, for in 1663he hired a bouwery of 25 or 30 morgans, of Gerit Bancker and Harmen Vedderen, at Schenectady, and still retained posession of his house in Albany as late as 1667. His home and lot in Schenectadt was on the north side of Union Street, 100 Amsterdam feet westerly from Church Street, running through to Front Street, and remained in the family more than a hundred years. He m. Rebecca, daughter of Philip Du Trieux (Traux), court messenger of New Amsterdam, and had the following children: Symon; Abraham; Philip; Dirk; Cornelis; Claas; Susanna, who m. Isaac Cornelise Swits; Marie, who m.

He came from Settin Germany and took for his spouse Jannetje Symens. Kept a store in Wiltwyck for a few years and then moved again for Ponckhockie where he continued trade.

He left that for Albany. By definition of the name is furred coat or petticoat. It is anciently quite fashionable to trim coats and the bottom of petticoats with fur, hence Evert de Pels.
