Johannes Stryker-Cornelia Vanderveer Family Bible Records

Copies of several family records have been recently received by the Genealogical Society of New Jersey that shed light on the descendants of Johannes Stryker and Cornelia Vanderveer. These records were found among church pew receipts in a chimney closet. [Although the church is not specified, it is likely to have been the Dutch Reformed Church of Flatbush, Long Island, New York, where many of these family members resided.]

Additional notes by the submitter
The parents of Johannes Stryker: An earlier publication of Strycker Family Bible records, (Oct 1923, volume LIV of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, "Bible Records, Suydam, Ditmas, Rhinelander and Strycker", contributed by Josephine C. Frost.) documents Johannes Stryker as the son of Jan Strycker and his first wife, Margarita Schenk. This Bible record states that Johannes Stryker was the second son "onse twede zoon" born Feb 12/1707 on Friday at 8 o'clock in the morning. The first child "onse eerste kindt" was Pieter born on September 4, 1705 on Thursday afternoon.
Given the Dutch tradition of naming children after alternate paternal and maternal family members, it is interesting to determine the origin of Johannes and Cornelia's children's names. It is my belief that Johannes Strycker and Cornelia Vanderveer named their third and fourth children after his mother and his paternal grandfather, Pieter. It is unusual that no child was named Jan (or John) after Johannes' father. Perhaps an infant, older than Pieter, perhaps even by other wife, died and was not recorded.
The parents of Cornelia Vanderveer: It is reasonable to conclude that 1) Dominicus and Marya (Maria) are family names from Cornelia Vanderveer's side. 2) Cornelia herself is likely named for a grandmother or great-grandmother. And 3) given her birth year of 1711, Cornelia's parents were almost certainly born before 1692. The most likely candidates for Cornelia's parents are Dominicus Cornelisse Vanderveer (baptized 16 November 1679 in the DRC of Flatbush, Long Island, New York), and Maria Margaretta Van Noortwyck, (born ? in the Netherlands, died 21 September 1712 in Flatbush). This couple was married in the DRC of Flatbush soon after their marriage license was granted on 28 January 1702/03. Their first child Cornelius was born about 1704. Maria Van Noortwyck's parents were Adrianus Van Noortwyck and Cornelia Van Wesel -- Cornelia Vanderveer's maternal grandmother. Any proof or dis-proof of these conclusions would be deeply appreciated.

(19) Jan Strycker (son of Pieter Strycker and Annetje Barends) was born August 6, 1684, married (first) Margarita, daughter of Johannes Schenck, of Bushwick, Long Island, in 1704. She died August, 1721. He married (second) Sarah, daughter of Michael Hansey Bergen, of Brooklyn, Long Island, February 17, 1722. She was baptized June 2, 1678, died July 15, 1760. He died August 17, 1770. He was one of the Sachems of the Tammany Society. He was a member of Captain Domenicas Vandervere's company, Kings County Militia, in 1715. He resided in Flatbush and seems to have had considerable landed property there. Jan Strycker and Margarita Schenck (his first wife) had a son, Johannes (44), born February 21, 1707, married Cornelia Duryea [Wrong -- Cornelia was not a Duryea but a Vanderveer -- Webmaster], 1733. His will is recorded February 7, 1785. He settled about three-fourths of a mile from Harlingen, thirteen miles from New Brunswick, about half way between the Sourland mountains and the Millstone river. He increased the share of land given him through the estate of his grandfather, Pieter (9), by the purchase of large tracts of land from Dollun Hegeman, March 26, 1750, and from Hendrick Van Dyck, December 22, 1757.On 19 Apr 1704 when Jan Pieterse was 19, he married Margrita SCHENCK,1,3 in Kings County, New York.

(9) His [Jan Stryker's] son, Pieter, born November 1, 1653, in Flatbush, married Annetje Barends, May 29, 1681, died June 11, 1741. She died June 17, 1717. He was one of the patentees of the town of Flatbush named in the Dongan patent, November 12, 1685. He was high sheriff of Kings county, Long Island, commissioned November 2, 1683; judge of the court from 1720 to 1722. On December 27, 1689, we find him a captain of foot militia. His residence in Flatbush, torn down about forty years ago, was a stately Holland brick building in quaint Dutch style, with the letters "P. S. 1696" over the doorway, and certainly its appearance indicated a home of genuine hospitality. Garret Stryker (528) lives on this property today, it having never passed out of the family. (See Vanderbilt's Social History of Flatbush, p. 214.)
On June 1, 1710, he purchased of the three brothers, Aert, Matthew and David Aerson, of Brockland, Kings county, New York, the four thousand acres on Millstone river in Somerset county, New Jersey, which they had received by a patent from the proprietors of East Jersey, January 9, 1702. This deed is still in existence.
It does not appear that he ever lived on this property, but his sons, Jacob and Barent, and his grandsons, the four sons of Jan (19), removed from Flatbush and settled in Somerset county, New Jersey.

Cornelius Janszen Van Der Veer b. 1622 or ~1642 d. before 22 Feb 1703Posted by Jerry D. Vandiver on June 7, 1999:14
He arrived in the America on Feb 17, 1659 on the ship De Otter, landing at Midwout, what is now Flatbush, NY. In Feb 1678 he purchased a farm in Flatbush for about 2600 guilders or $1274 current US dollars. In 1683 The Assement Roll of Midwout lists him as having 100 acres. This land became known as the 26th and 32nd ward of Brooklyn and was owned by his descendents until 1906. He and his son-in-law Daniel Polhemus, erected a grist mill on Fresh Kill in Flatbush, which came into the hands of his son Dominicus, and later his grandson Cornelius. He died in Feb, 1703 in Flatbush, NY.
In 1672, he married Tryntje [Grietje] De Manderville b.1654 in Guildeland, Holland, daughter of Gillis De Manderville and Eltje Hendrickson. She died in Flatbush, NY. She arrived the America in 1659 with her parents. Different records refer to her father leaving Holland 12 Feb 1659 on the ship De Trouw ( Faith) or arriving on Apr 1659 on the Moesman (The Market Gardener). A ship listing of the Moesman in Apr 1659 show Gillis Mandeville as a passenger.

The origins of Cornelius Van der Veer is in question at present, one version based on the book "The Van Der Veer Family in the Netherlands" Louis P. DeBoer - Published 1913 and work by John J. Van Der Veer in 1912, which indicates that Cornelius came from Allkmaar, Holland, The Netherlands. While DeBoer's book is a good match for the movements of the Dutch people during the colonial period, the connection to the Van Borsselen family is probably optimistic. Curious is that the village of Borssele is just a few miles from Kloetinge where the other opinion indicates he's from. The second opinion is that he may have been called Cornelius Jansz Dominicus based on a document from Dordrecht, The Netherlands dated 20 Jun 1706. This document states that Dominicus Domincussen Van Der Veer of Midwout, New York is to recover monies owed his father Cornelius Dominicus by a brother named Jacob Dominicus living near the city of Goes. Clearly within this document it refers to Cornelius Van Der Veer's family in New York and lists him as using the name Cornelius Dominicus and Cornelius Leeuw. Cornelius used the name Cornelius De Seeuw on several occasions in New York, but the use of Leeuw is somewhat of a question however since that translates to Cornelius Lion and Cornelius Seeuw translates to Cornelius of Zeeland. Zeeland being a providence in south part of the Netherlands, containing the villiages of Veere, Kloetinge, Goes, Welmelding, and Borssele, all of which have been associated with the Van Der Veer and Dominicus names. From other unconfirmed references I have recently found, Cornelius Dominicus of Kloetinge, did have a brother Jacob Dominucus of whom was selling land on Cornelius Dominicus's behalf. In a reference to a land transaction dated 15 Feb 1658 in Wemeldinge, it refers to Cornelius being out to the county and in another reference it refers to his being out of the country and his property was heavily in debt. This may have prompted him to leave for Niew Amsterdam to seek his fortune. I have yet to find a record to indicate where Cornelius Dominicus left for. Veere is approx 25 miles away from Kloetinge and therefore quite possible that Cornelius Dominicus adopted Van Der Veer in favor of Dominicus in Niew Amsterdam.

1. Cornelius Jansen (Dominicus) Vanderveer was probably born around 1640 in the Zeeland Province of The Netherlands, and died around 1703 on Long Island. He arrived aboard "the Otter" in 1659, and probably married Tryntie Mandeville around 1762-5. They had 6 children that reached maturity - Neeltje, Jan Cornelise, Dominicus, Maria, Hendrickje and Jacoba. For details see The New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, Vol. LXVIII, No. 3, July 1937, "Early Generations of the Vanderveer Family" by Lester Dunbar Mapes.
2. Jan Cornelise Vanderveer was born around 1665 on Long Island. He married Femmetje Bergen on 9 January 1695, and had died by 29 November 1732 in Flatbush, Kings Co., New York. They had 10children - Catryntje, Cornelius, Michael, Teunis, Jacobus, Jan, Hendrick, Johannes, Femmetje, and Sarah. A deed dated 29 Nov 1732 was signed by each of his children, which also indicated where they resided. Tunis was a resident of Monmouth Co., New Jersey, and Jacob, Hendrick and Catryntje (Van Nuys) resided in Somerset Co. Of these 4, the article mentioned above only details the family of Tunis, from this point the only references I have are Wills.
3. Jacob Jansen Vanderveer was born 6 March 1703/4 in Flatbush, and died at Bedminster, Somerset Co., New Jersey before 12 February 1777. I don't know who his wife was, but he was well to do and owned large amounts of property in New Jersey, Maryland and Virginia. He had 6 children - Joseph, John, Femmetje, Lawrence, Jacobus, and Elias. John died without children by 1771, and was not listed in his fatherís Will, though he was executor for his brother Joseph. Jacobís Will (along with the initial donations to churches) gives the following information about land:
New Jersey Wills, Liber 18, pgs 558-9. "To the elders or trustees of the Low Dutch Churches at Raritan, Readington, Sowerland and New Shaneck ... to my grandson Jacob, son of my son Joseph, the house and lot in Mecklenburg in Virginia, which I bought of Thomas Thornburg and 100 acres near Swearingerís Ferry in Maryland at Potomac river in Frederick Co. which I purchased of David Shepherd ... to my granddaughter Femmetye, daughter of my son Joseph the lot in Mecklenburg, Virginia which I bought of Shaplin and 62 acres in Frederick Co., Maryland ... to my son Lowrens 430 acres on which he lives ... to my son Jacobus the land over the river (Hunterdon Co.) ... to my son Elias, my dwelling land, 435 acres and 20 acres over the river ... to son Lowrens 300 acres in Virginia ... to daughter Femmetje land in Virginia bought of Jacob Van Meter, 97 acres ... to son Elias land in Virginia bought of Edward and Robert Lucas ..."
The Will does not indicate the size of the property in Hunterdon County given to his son Jacob, but I would assume it was equivalent in value (if not size) to the properties he gave his other children.
6. CORNELIUS JANSE (DOMINICUS)6 VANDERVEER (JAN CORNELISSE5 DOMINICUS, CORNELIUS4, DOMINICUS3 JANSSE, JAN2 ADRIAENSE, ADRIAEN1 JANSSE) was born 03 Mar 1622/23 in prob. Zeeland, The Netherlands, and died c. 22 Feb 1702/03 in Flatbush, Kings Co., NY. He married TRYNTIE MANDEVILLE c. 1669 in Flatbush, Kings Co., NY, daughter of JILLIS MANDEVIELL and ELSIE HENDRICKS.Between about 1666 and 1672 Cornelius Janse married Tryntie MANDEVILLE,5,6 in Flatbush, Kings Co, New York.5,6

The remaining 6 names above match existing evidence. There are 3 primary references which establish the adult children of Cornelius and Tryntie:
1) In the Documentary History of New York by E. B. O'Callaghan, MD, volume 3, page 137, a "Census of 1698 at Flatbush (Midwout)" lists the following:Men Women Children Cornelius Vanderveer 1 1 4 Jan Vander Veer 1 1 2Since Neeltje married in 1685 to Daniel Polhemus, and there are no other listings of Vanderveers, the number of children at 6 checks out.
2) On 5 May 1704 an agreement is filed between John Cornelisse Vanderveer, "Minikes" Vanderveer, Daniel Polhemus (husband of Neeltje), John Durlant (husband of Marykje), Hendrickje and "Coba" Vanderveer with "Tryntje Vanderveer, widow and relict of Cornelius Vanderveer, late of Flatbush, Kings Co." This matches the 6 children listed.
3) The document dated 20 June 1706 which is cited as proving Cornelius Janszen Vanderveer was known as "Dominicus" in the Netherlands, is signed by the following:
Treijnte Jillis, widow of Cornelius Jansz. Dominicus, commonly called Cornelius de Zeeuw
Jan Dominicus (son)
Daniel Polhemus, and his wife Neeltie Dominicus
Jan Dorlant, and his wife Maria Dominicus
Isaack Remsen, and his wife Hendericje Dominicus
Jan Cowenhoven, and his wife Jacoba Dominicus
giving power of attorney to "Dominicus Dominicussen van der Veer" to collect 3,200 guilders from "Jacob Jansz. Dominicus," his father's brother, which has been owing to his father "Cornelius Jansz. Dominicus" since 24 Mar 1671 for a sale of land. Interestingly, the document was indirectly enclusive of all 3 names by which Cornelius was known - Dominicus, de Zeeuw and "van der Veer". This list of 5 children giving power of attorney to the 6th again matches the list above.

Tryntje [Grietje] De Manderville b.1654 in Guildeland, Holland, daughter of Gillis De Manderville and Eltje Hendrickson. She died in Flatbush, NY. She arrived in America in 1659 with her parents. Different records refer to her father leaving Holland 12 Feb 1659 on the ship De Trouw ( Faith) or arriving on Apr 1659 on the Moesman (The Market Gardener). A ship listing of the Moesman in Apr 1659 show Gillis Mandeville as a passenger.22 Rev. Adrianus VAN NOORTWYCK.1,5 Born about 1660.
