  • Notes 
      1. The book “Genealogy of the Family of Longstreet with Its Related Families…,” by Edward Mayes (Tuttle Antiquarian Books, Inc., Rutland, VT; 1989?), p. D35-D36:
      “Frederick Van Lieuwen (or Van Liew, as it was sometimes spelled) immigrated to New Amsterdam in 1612; which, as remarked in connection with the first Longstreets, was the year in which the Dutch Admiral, Van Tromp, sailed the English Channel with a broom at his mast-head, was seven years after the appointment of Peter Stuyvesant to the Directorship of the Province, and two years before the organization of the first religious congregation on Long Island. He was the first of our related families to come over, preceding the Langestraets by five years, and the Lanen van Pelts by eleven years. Not much is known of him. He came from Utrecht, having been probably, at one period, a resident of Leuwen. a village in Gelderland, on the river Waal. He brought his family with him, and settled in the village of Jamaica, on Long Island. He had in all nine children, many of whose descendants are still to be found in Somerset Co., N. Jersey. Their names are not all known, but among them were the following:
      (1) Jan Fredericks. Jan Fredericks was probably the oldest child; born in Utrecht about 1647-48. He marred Aeltie Jans, daughter of Jan Jansen. Was on the assessment rolls of Brooklyn in the years 1675. '76, ’83, and '93; deacon in the Reformed Dutch Church there, in 1683; took the oath of allegiance, there, in 1687. Issue: Jan, bapt. Dec. 9. 1677; Margriet, bapt. Mar. 14, 1680; Abraham, bapt. July 9, 1682; Grietje, bapt. Apl. 20, 1685; Dina. bapt. Mar. 25, 1687; Esje, bapt. Nov. 10, 1689: Hendrick. bapt. Apt. 30, 1694: and Elizabeth, bapt. Dec. 13, 1697 -- All in the Kings County Churches.
      (2) Catharina, of whom next.
      (3) Hendrick. ___ Hendrick was baptised Oct. 14, 1683: married. 1st., ApI. 18, 1713, Geerje Corteiyou of New Utrecht (at which place he probably resided at one time); married, 2nd, Marya ___, and had by her a son, Jurien, who was bapt. Aug. 26, 1721, in New Utrecht.
      Catharine Van Lieuwen, wife of Dirck Langstraet, was one of the oldest children, probably the second. She was born about 1648-1650, and in Utrecht, in the Netherlands, in all probability must have married about 1669, as her family began to be born about 1670. We have no indication of the date of her death, further than this: that one of her sons was born about 1680, and her husband married a second time in February, 1690; so that she must have died between those dates. It was probably after 1685.”
