Louwerens Van Cleef


Children:

1. Cornelius Van Cleef

2. Jacob Van Cleef

3. Femmetje Van Cleef

4. Elizabeth Van Cleef

5. Jannetje Van Cleef

6. Laurens Van Cleef

7. Marya Van Cleef

8. Isaac Van Cleef


NOTES: Mrs. John (Mabel) Spell, New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, Vol. 84, pages 70-81, has Jannetje Lane married to Laurens Van Cleef, son of Benjamin Van Cleef and Hendricke Sutphen. There has been a great deal of confusion regarding the marrige, probably due to the number of Louwerenses, Benjamins, and Corneliuses in the family. Ledly, The Van Cleef Family, (Polyanthos, New Orleans, 1976), indicates that the marriage and paternity as given herein is correct. After spending weeks examining all the known marriages of the various Laurens Van Cleefs, as well as the proposed parents of Mary Van Cleef, I feel that the line set out here is correct. Other marriages result in 14 year-old mothers, 60 year-old fathers; nothing impossible, but far enough out of the ordinary to make them suspect. Further evidence is supplied by the pension applications of two of Marya's children, noted above, and by the will of Cornelius Van Cleef, the eldest child of Louwerens Van Cleef. In this will, Cornelius' wife is give 100 pounds and life interest in his estate. Also named are Mary Conelly, wife of Nicholas Wyckoff (son of William Wyckoff). Most importantly, provision is made for the children of three of his sisters; Elizabeth Hageman, Mary Van Arsdale, and Phebe (Femmetje) Suydam. This ties Cornelius and three of his sisters together incontrovertibly. Further evidence is supplied by the traditional Dutch naming patterns, which reflect the Van Cleef and Lane families.

Children:

1. Jan Van Cleef

2. Jacobus Van Cleef

5. Maria Van Cleef


NOTES: Cornelis is on the assessment rool, New Utreacht, 1693. In the 1698 Gravesend census he is listed with a wife and two children (other children may have been in a different household at the time of the census, or there may be errors, as the will of Isaac Van Cleef ties together all the children except Maria (mentioned in Van Deventer), as well as tying them to Jan and Phebe (Femmetje). Gravesend Record 64:238 - bought land in Gravesend from Paulus Dircks Ammerman, 1700. Kings County Deeds 1:77 - sold two acres of land in New Utrecht to Anthony Holsart for 130 pounds.

13. Cryten (Seytie) Van Cleef


NOTES: Ledley; Alfred Stokes Andrews, Andrews, Capp, Stokes, Wright, Van Cleve Genealogies, (Cleveland, 1970). Andrews details the descent of Orville and Wilbur Wright from Isbrandt Van Cleef. Engeltie, or Angelica, Louwerens is sometimes listed as another child, presumably born c1680 (based on her 1701 marriage to John Emans). It is generally thought that this is the widow, not the child, of Jan Van Cleef. All of John Emans' children were born of his previous marriage. Jan used a capital 'v' in his signature - fairly unusual in New Netherland.
