CLAES MARTENSZEN VAN ROSENVELT arrived in New Netherland, now New York, in one of the most memorable years in the history of his time, for it was about 1649, when the Dutch government was seriously embarrassed. A contest had been waged between the people and the Sovereign of England, as it had long before been carried on in the Netherlands. Opposition had been succeeded by revolt and civil war. Charles the First was beheaded in front of his own banqueting hall, and England declared a republic. The shock, which troubled Europe, was felt in America. In that year Winthrop died. The Dutch and other traders were forbidden to trade with the New England savages. Arms were brought to New Amsterdam from Holland, the people fearing that war would break out with the savages. Public opinion was running strong against Stuyvesant. Food was scarce. The winter was so cold that "ink froze in the pen." About this time a Burgher government was demanded, and delegates were sent to Holland. Katskill and Claverack were settled. Stuyvesant opposed the reformers. Fort Nassau was demolished. Esopus (N. Y.) and Newtown (L. I.) were settled. The Burgher government was conceded to Manhattan. War was declared between the English and the Dutch nations. The Dutch built fortifications across New Amsterdam. In 1652-1653 all business was at a standstill, and the people were under arms, not knowing when an attempt would be made against the Colony. The next year the Dutch found danger still greater, as Cromwell had dispatched a fleet to America, and as the fleet was leaving New England for New Amsterdam it was met by a vessel bringing news of peace between England and Holland. Later, in 1655, the Colony awoke one morning to find itself in possession of the Indians, but Stuyvesant established quiet by presents instead of by arms.

Claes Martenszen van Rosenvelt was among the numerous Holland colonists who came over to New Amsterdam in 1649 or 1650, undoubtedly bringing with him his wife, Jannetje Samuel-Thomas. In Munsill's American Ancestry, Vol. VI., p. 19, we find the statement that he immigrated to New Amsterdam, with his wife, in August, 1649. No record of their marriage in New Amsterdam has been found, but it is a matter of record in the "Court Minutes of New Amsterdam, August 6, 1655" that "Jannetie Hamel, wife of Nicholas Martensen, declares," etc. The baptismal records of their children in the Reformed Dutch church of New York City are signed by their parents as Claes Martenszen van Rosevelt-Jannetje Samuels-Jannetje Thomas, as shown by the records herein given, Styntie Claes Rosevelt was admitted member of the church November 28, 1678. Claes Rosevelt was admitted December 4. 1679, to the Reformed Dutch church of New York, where they and their descendants have attended for 250 years.

Isaac Roosevelt, born, 1726, who was one of the most active American patriots in New York during the whole period of the Revolution, was at least one half German by blood, as three of his four great-grandfathers were German, as well as at least one of his great-grandmothers.

 ISAAC (Jacobus), b. December 8th old style and 19th new style, 1726 (from family Bible). Baptized December 18, 1726, in the Reformed Dutch Church of New York; m., Septem-ber 22, 1752, new style, Cornelia Hoffman, b. August 13, old style and 24 new style (from family Bible), 1734, at Kingston, N.Y., daughter of Colonel Martinus Hoffman and Tryntie, daughter of Robert and Cornelia (Roos) Benson. Son of Nicholas Hoffman of Kingston, Ulster Co., N. Y., and his wife Jannetje, daughter of Antonie Crispell, a Huguenot, and one of the patentees of New Paltz, Ulster Co., N. Y.

Isaac Roosevelt was admitted freeman September 27, 1748. His business was that of sugar refining. He built the old sugar house, the first erected before the Revolution, and worked during the war and for forty years after. His store was originally on Wall Street. His house faced on Queen Street, now Pearl, in Franklin Square.  Harper Bros. now owns this property. On the rear of his house and in the center of the block was the old sugar house. On the 25th of April, 1772, he removed to St. George's Square, and he issued the following advertisement: "Isaac Roosevelt is removed from his house in Wall Street to the house of his late brother, Jacobus Roosevelt, Jr., deceased, near the Sugar house, and opposite to Mr. William Waltons, being on the north-west side of Queen Street, where his customers may be supplied as usual with double, middling and single refined loaf sugars, clarified, muscovado and other molasses, & etc."

The Chamber of Commerce was organized in 1768 and kept up by the resident merchants during the war. Isaac Roosevelt was one of its first members. (Mem. Hist. N. Y., p. 15, Vol III.) His name is found among the original incorporators of the first public hospital in New York, 1770.

Mr. Isaac Roosevelt enlisted as private in the Sixth Regiment, Dutchess County Militia (Land Bounty Rights: N. Y. in the Revolution, p. 250). He was elected April 22, 1775, a member of the Provincial Congress "On Sunday, April 23, 1775, at noon, a dusty, travel stained horseman dashed into the city with the news of the affair at Lexington, in a twinkling copies of the dispatch he bore were posted at all places of public resort."

"On May the 1st, 1775, the following gentlemen were among those chosen a general committee for the county and city of New York in the present alarming crisis. 'Isaac Roosevelt, 'Nicholas Roosevelt,' at the same time chosen deputies of the other counties, in the Provincial Congress, May 22. Isaac Roosevelt." (N. Y. Mem. Hist., Vol. II., p. 480.)

He was one of the most noted Whigs of the time. On the entry of the British he withdrew from the city. His sacrifices were rewarded by the confidence of his countrymen. Mr. Roosevelt was one of the General Committee of One Hundred to take control of the government. He represented the city of New York in the convention at Kingston, Ulster County, N. Y., to form a constitution for this State, April 20, 1777, and of the New York convention at Poughkeepsie, June 18, 1788, to deliberate on the adoption of the Constitution of the United States.

The men of 1776 had found out long ago that to carry on war successfully money was needed, for they had to pay for powder alone L30 or L40 per 100 wt.; hence the last issue of paper money was soon drawn out of the treasury. About the same time New York applied to the Continental Congress for a loan of L45, 000, which was refused, and the Committee of Safety, sitting during the adjournment of the Provincial Congress, ordered, January 6, 1776, that Isaac Roosevelt get an emission of paper money ready as quickly as possible. Delays, however, arose. March 5th the House adopted the report of the Committee for the issue of L55, 000, 213,400 bills in denomination of 1-8, 1-6, 1-4, 1-3, 1-2, 2-3, 1, 2, 3, 5, 10, to be redeemed or sunk in three yearly installments, beginning March 1, 1779. (Mem. Hist. N. Y., Vol. IV., p. 339.) The Bank of New York was established early in 1784, largely through the efforts of William Duer and General Alexander McDougall, who was its first president until his death on 8th June 1786, when Mr. Roosevelt succeeded him. Mr. Roosevelt was State Senator, 1786-90.

The freeholders and freemen of the city met at the Exchange on March 6. On that day a Union flag with a red field was hoisted on the liberty pole, at 9 o'clock, when the people rallied in large numbers and marched to the Exchange, where they authorized the committee to nominate eleven deputies, for the sole purpose of choosing delegates to the General Congress, such election to be held April 25. The committee nominated deputies for the city and county of New York in the Provincial Congress. They were Philip Livingston, John Jay, James Duane, John Alsop, Isaac Low, Francis Lewis, Abraham Walton, Abraham Brasher, Alexander McDougall, Leonard Lispenard and Isaac Roosevelt. (Meni. Hist. N. Y., Vol. II., p. 443.)

(Printed in "The Packet" throughout the Summer of 1788.)

New York State convention, called to meet at Poughkeepsie, June 17, 1788. Isaac Roosevelt was one of the seventeen State Senators under Governor Clinton.

In 1784 Mr. Roosevelt resumed his business of sugar refining, in partnership with his son, under the firm name of Isaac Roosevelt & Son. Mr. Roosevelt continued president of the bank until 1791, when he retired and was succeeded by Gulian Verplank. "He was the fourth President of the Society of the New York Hospital, 1790-1794. He died October, 1794, aged 68, beloved and honored as a tried, true and constant parent." (Chamber Commerce Rec.)

In the diary of General George Washington the following lines are written about Nov. 14, 1789: "Received an invitation to attend the funeral of Mrs. Roosevelt (the wife of a Senator of this State), but declined complying with it, first, because the propriety of accepting an invitation of this sort appeared to be very questionable, and secondly (though to do it in this instance might not be improper), because it might be difficult to discriminate in cases which might thereafter happen." (Mem. Hist. N. Y., Vol. III., p. 57.

"She departed this life on Fryday, 12 o'clock ye 13 Nove 1789 being then 55 years 2 ms and 19 days of age" (from family Bible in possession of John A. Roosevelt, Hyde Park, N. Y.).

Notes for FRANKLIN DELANO ROOSEVELT:

Source:  "Franklin D Roosevelt's Colonial Ancestors," by Alvin Page Johnson

Named Franklin Delano in honor of his mother's uncle, Franklin Hughes Delano.

President-elect

Franklin D. Roosevelt will be the first President descended from some of the small number of German settlers who came to New Netherland while it was under Dutch rule.

He will also be the first President with any considerable amount of French blood, being descended from Philippe De la Noye, Anthony Crispel, Mary Lobel, the wife of James Cole, John Coombs, and by two lines from Hester Mahieu, the wife of Francis Cooke.  This is remarkable, as the number of French among the early settlers was very small.

The fact that Franklin D. Roosevelt will be the First President descended from any of the early Swedish settlers is another instance of the wide variety of people from whom his descent is traced.
