Notes for Arent Theunissen Van Heugel:
RYNERSON: Information taken from the Somerset Count Historical Quarterly, Somerset, New Jersey. V.5 pp. 285-287 V.6 pp. 55-58. Note: notes on family from unpublished information by Edward Kinsey Voorhees, Evanston,

Name started as Van Hengel from Dutch family from Hengel in Holland changed to by his son Reynier Arentsen (Reynier, son of Arent). His descendants took the name of Renierson. Other spellings of the name include: Reynearson, Rynearson, Rynerson.

Arent, his wife Tryntie, and their 3 children came from Hengel in Gelderland, Holland. They came over in 1653 and settled on Staten Island. Arent was probably killed in the Indian uprising on Staten Island in Sept. 1655. Tyntie, his widow, then married Severyn Laurenszen on May 25, 1656. He was from Rootsisill, in Denmark.

Tryntie died prior to August 5, 1671, because on the date Laurenszen married Greitje Hendricks, Widow of Focke Jansen. Tryntie is mentioned in Colonial Documents of N.Y., Vol. XIII, and in La Chair's Register, Vol. 11, reprinted in Holland Society Year Book of 1900.

Notes for Jan Snedeger:
Notes taken directly from "The Book of Snedekers":
Jan Snedeger (Snedeker) was born in Amersfoort, Holland that is located fourteen miles south of Amsterdam. He came to Nieuw Netherlands, (later Nieuw Amsterdam) now New York City about 1639. Records show that he was a cadet when he came to the New World. His station as a cadet indicates that he was a fairly young man at the time. He must have been an industrious and public-spirited young man, for he rose in the esteem of those in authority in the colony, and was sent as a delegate from Midwout, which he founded, to a convention in New Orange (now Albany, NY) in March, 1674.

Jan was one of the original patentees of Midwout - - now Flatbush - - Long Island in 1652. He was appointed Magistrate March 30, 1654 by Governor Peiter Stuyvesant, and was one of the "Twelve Men"
who were recognized by the title "Original Proprietors" in the New Netherlands. (See "First Families of America" page 764; also "History of Flatbush, Long Island", by Strong.

In the early years, he lived just outside the fort of Nieuw Amsterdam, on the spot where the Customs House now stands.

In the month of July, 1645, Jan was granted a patent for a double lot south of the fort in Nieuw Amsterdam, and on September 5, 1645, he was granted another lot on Pearl Street. Part of his land was described as fronting on Flatbush Avenue, and running East for a half mile to what is now Utica Avenue.

On the double lot south of the Fort, he owned and operated a tavern and tap room (likely the very first in the New World!). It is known that in 1652, Jan was living in the residence on Pearl Street prior to moving ti the Midwout homestead depicted in the sketch. In 1656, he petitioned for compensation for the loss of certain lots, as a result of a new layout of the village of Flatbush. The petition was granted.

His will was dated December 12, 1677, and recorded in Liber "D" on pages 336/7. Only his son, Gerret, and his wife, Egbertje, are specifically named, but the will left bequests to his son's sisters.

On January 10, 1681, the Widow Egbertje, along with her Hendrickse children and the Snedeger children agreed to the settlement of the estate. The Snedeger children referred to above were: Anna, Peter C. Luyster (second husband of Jannetje), Gerret and Styntje. (See "Bancker Families", pages 29 - 31.)
