 Includes NotesNotes for Evardus Bogardus:
Some names are disguised in a Latin dress. The practice prevailed at the time of the emigration to our
country of changing the names of those who had gone through the university and received a degree from plain Dutch into sonorous Roman. The names of all our early ministers were thus altered.
Johannes or Jan Mecklenburg became Johannes Megapolensis; Evert Willemse Bogaert became
Everardus Bogardus; Jan Doris Polheem became Johannes Theodorus Polhemius. The last was the
founder of the Polhemus family of Brooklyn. The records here show that he was a minister at Meppel
in the province of Drenthe, and in 1637 went as such to Brazil under the auspices of the West India
Company, whence he went to Long Island. Samuel Dries, who by the way was an Englishman, but
who graduated at Leyden, was named Samuel Drisius. It may, therefore, be set down as a general
rule that the names of Dutch families ending in us have thus been Latinized.
