There is some confusion as to where he was born; some historians state in New Amsterdam, others in Amsterdam, Holland, and still others on the boat between on one of the families many trips to Holland. In 1695 Matthew owned a farm at Carles Neck, Staten Island, New York, near the Freshkills. He had a cattle mark patented there on 13 April, 1704, and on 07 April, 1705 he owned a home, and lands near a road in Staten Island. He appears in the Staten Island census of 1706, and he was listed as a Cooper at this time. He was a member of the North Militia company in 1715, and was listed as 36 years old in the 1706 census. On 12 May, 1712 he conveyed land to John Depuy at Carles Neck at the Freshkill, and on 19 May, 1718 Lambert Garrison conveyed land to Eve Decker, the widow of Mattheus. This land was comprised of 3 acres.
