   Notes for Wilhelmina (Wyntje){Wintje} Ariens DE JONGH

 

Contributed by Dirk P. De Young, Avenel, NJ. Former American consul
at Amsterdam, Netherlands.
The October, 1938, issue of "The New York Genealogical and
Biographical Record" contains an article on the Roosa-De Jongh
families of America, of interest to all who descend from Aldert or
Alert Hymansen Roosa and his wife Wilhelmina De Jongh, early settlers
of Ulster County, New York. I have noted references to this family in
previous issues of "The Record", with some confusion regarding
"Wojntje Ariens", the wife of Alert Hymensen Roosa, and her maiden
name De Jongh. I am therefore of the opinion that some official
records I have gathered on the subject will be of interest, inasmuch
as I have authenic data on the ancestry of the wife of Alert Hymansen
Roosa going back to 1500 or further. As this is a branch of President
Franklin D. Roosevelt's lineage also, it is more interesting. These
records have been gathered in an extended research over a period of
years, at considerable expense, because my own De Jongh ancestry is
out of the same locality.
The "Wijntje Ariens" lineage, as I shall endevor to make clear from
documentry records later, is as follows:
5. Adrian De Jongh, born about 1500
4. Adrian De Jongh, born about 1530
3. Meerten Adrians De Jongh, born about 1560-1570
2. Adrian Meertensen De Jongh, born about 1600
1. Wilhelmina (Winjntje) Ariens De Jongh, born about 1630, Wife
of Alert Hymansen Roosa. Arien Ariensen De Jongh, her brother, was
the Burgomaster of Herwijnen, and held the power of attorney of her
husband, Alert Hymansen Roosa.

To prove this line I have the following records extracted from the
"Gerechtelijke Archieven van de Gerichtbank van Tuil", Province of
Gelderland, 1588-1681, the juidical archives of the District Court of
the district that embraces Herwijnen.

(1) June 29, 1664. Arien Ariensen De Jongh (this was a brother of
"Wijntje Ariens") coveyed land in Herwijnen to Peter Jans Beuschem, by
virtue of a power of attorney given him by Alert Hymansen Roosa
(husband of Wijntje) on February 28, 1660, and the security given to
bind the transaction was Alert Hymansen Roosa's interest in the estate
of the late Adrian Meertensen De Jongh, to assure the buyer that any
taxes on the same back as far as 1626 would be paid.

The estate mentioned was apparently that of the father of Wilhelmina
De Jongh, wife of Alert Hymansen Roosa, as he would have acted for
her. This document also indicates that Adrian Meertsen De Jongh was
the owner of the land as early as 1626, and it reveals that the father
of Adrian Meertensen De Jongh was Meerten.

(2) March 3, 1660. Alert Hymansen Roosa, living in Herwijnen,
conveyed half 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 pleged his interest in the estate of the late Adrian
Meertensen De Jongh as security for the fulfillment of the contract.
It is further proof that the wife of Alert or Aldert Hymansen Roosa
was the daughter of Adrian Meertensen De Jongh. The De Jongh family
owned large fowler preserves in Hellouw in the seventeenth century.

(3) March 20, 1637. Jan Corneliuse Van Munster conveyed land in
Hellouw to Meerten Adrien's De Jongh, from which we infer that Meerten
De Jongh was the father of Adrian Meertensen De Jongh, the father of
Wilhelmina (Wijntje) Ariens De Jongh.

(4) April 26, 1632. Joris Ariensen 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 above conveyer 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. Other De Jongh
families in Holland claim that. (Reference: "Nederlandsche Leeuw",
1922, page 283, and Volume 1, page 457).

(5)January 11, 1631. Adrian Evertsen Groot, heir of Jan Adriensen
Groot, conveyed land in Herwijnen to Adrian Adriensen Joriazoon De
Jongh-Adrian, son of Adrian, son of Joris, son of Adrian De Jongh,
which again throws the De Jongh ancestry of that locality back to
Adrian De Jongh born not later than 1500.

Although the name of the family of De Jonghs was sometimes spelled
"de Jong", or "D'Jong", in the judicial archives it was almost always
spelled "De Jongh", and the signatures were invariably written "De
Jongh". I have also extracted numerous documents from the old wills
preserved in Gorinchem, a few miles from Herwijnen, where the family
name was also 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 in Herwijnen and
in our branch of the family as late as my grandfather the given name
"Adrian" prevailed.

I have tried, so far in vain, to trace the origin of this De Jongh
family back to the De Jongh family of Ghent and Bruges, where their
arms were registered as early as 1280, one of the patrician families
of 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 in Holland origin rarel;y used the letter "h". In
Herwijnen, and elsewhere, these de Jonghs generally held official
positions where they resided.

A grandson of Adrian Meertensen De Jongh, the father of Wilhelmina
Ariens De Jongh, namely Dominus (Reverend) Martinus Adrianuse De
Jongh, born in 1704, became a very noted Dutch Reformed minister and
was the minister of Dutch church in London for many years, and a son,
a grandson, and a great grandson of his, were all great preachers in
their day. The great grandson of said Ds. Martinus Adrianuse De Jongh
has quite a story on the family in "Navorscher", published in 1904. He
states that he has a silver signet with the family arms and a silver
cachet of some antiquity on which the name "Adriaen De Jongh" is
wriotten. In that article, written by M. J. De Jongh, is described
the physical characteristics of his forefathers as large and
well-built type, keen-minded men, of zealous and crusading nature.
Longevity he states also was common among them, and they had a fiery
delivery as ministers. That corresponds with other data I have
collected on other branches of this De Jongh family of Herwijnen and
even in my own branch longevity and zealousness in a cause have been
outstanding traits.--Carol Johnson.
