      P. 121 THE HENDRICKS OR HENDRICKSON FAMILY. Daniel and Wilm Hendricks, as they wrote their names and were called among their own folks, were brothers and sons of Hendrick Hendricks by his first wife. They came from Flatbush, in Kings county, Long Island, to Monmouth county, about 1692 or 1693, and settled on a tract of land at what is now Holland in Holmdel township. This land has been in the continuous owner ship and occupation of the descendants of Daniel Hendricks, the pioneer settler, down to the present year 1900, or over two centuries. The late Hon. William Henry Hen- drickson, who twice represented Monmouth in the New Jersey Senate, was born, lived, died and was buried on this homestead farm, as his father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, (who was the youngest son of the first settler) had been before him. I therefore take up Daniel Hendricks and his posterity before his brother William, because the latter has no descendants living in this vicinity. We find Daniel Hendrickson first mentioned in Book C of Deeds, p. 78, in our county clerk's office. An agreement dated September 23, 1693, is here recorded between Daniel Hendrickson and "John Gibbonson" as name is spelled, of Flatbush, Kings county, L. I., of the one part, and William Whitlock of Middletown, Monmouth county, of the other part. It seems they had on September 22d, 1692. leased of Whitlock 104 acres of land, described as partly bounded by Mahoras brook, and they now agree to pay him £25 in yearly installments until whole is paid by 10th of March, 1697, and Whitlock agrees to convey it when whole sum is paid. Daniel Hendrickson conveyed 28 acres of this tract to Gy- bertsen or Guisbertsen as name is spelled, who with Ester his wife, by deed dated December 22d, 1701, conveys it to John Ruckman. This Guisbertsen was the progenitor of the Giberson family as name was afterwards spelled, and I think was really a VanPelt. In Book I of Deeds, p. 166, Secretary of State's office, Trenton, N. J., is the record of a deed dated May 16, 1698, from John Whitlock and Mary his wife, late of Middletown township, but then of Freehold, to Daniel Hendrickson. conveying 104 acres for the consideration of £164. This land is described as situated at Strawberry Hill, now occuppied by Daniel Hendriekson, bounded south by lands late of William Whitlock, east by lands of Thomas Whit- lock, north by a small run coming from the hills, and west by another small brook; which 104 acres John Whitlock with other tracts of land got from the proprietors of East Jersey by patent dated January 20, 1676. Also another tract bounded northerly by James Wall's land, westerly by John Whitlock's land, southerly by land late William Whitlock, and east by Mahoras brook. Also 13 acres of salt meadow at Shoal Harbor, bounded north by the creek. In this same Book I of Deeds, p. 184, etc., is record of a deed dated February 5, 1706, from Thomas Cooper of London, England, a merchant, to Obadiah Bowne, Garret Wall, Gershom Mott, James Hubbard, James Grover, James Cox, Jaseph Cox, Richard Stout, Daniel Hendricks, Obadiah Holmes, William Law- rence, James Lawrence and Benjamin Lawrence, all of Middletown township, in Monmouth county. Cooper, for the consideration of £260 conveys to them one full equal half propriety, or 48th part of all lands taken up or to be taken up in the Eastern Division of the Province of New Jersey, excepting only 5,000 acres already taken up by said Cooper in right of first division, and 86 acres taken up in right of second division of said half propriety or 48th part of said Eastern Division of New Jersey. and which are already sold by said Thomas Cooper. He also conveys by this deed 600 acres of land at Barnegat, in what is now Ocean county. On page 194, etc., of this same Book I of Deeds, is record of a deed from Obadiah Bowne and rest of grantors aforesaid except Daniel Hendricks, to said Daniel Hendricks, dated February 5, 1706. It recites that said grantors with said Daniel Hendricks, purchased of Thomas Cooper one-half propriety or 48th part of the undivided Eastern Division of New Jersey, and also 600 acres of land at Barnegat; and by this deed they convey to said Daniel Hendricks, his heirs and assigns, a tract of 141 acres and right to take up 184 acres more under the second and third divisions. They also convey to him 21 acres of land and marsh at Barnegat. In this same Book I of Deeds, p. 376, is record of a deed dated December 7, 1709, from Richard Hartshorne and Margaret, his wife, to Daniel Hendriek- son, John Schenck, Garret Schenck, Cornelius Couwenhoven, Peter Wyckoff, all of Middletown, in Monmouth county, conveying to them three tracts of land at a place called by the Indians "Conescunk. The First tract containing 200 acres and lays next to bay. The second tract contains 70 acres and is situate on west side of "Conescunk Neck." The third tract is made up of several pieces of meadow containing in all 50 acres. Minutes of Monmouth county courts labelled No. 1. 1688-1721. show that Daniel Hendriekson was a grand juror at March term, 1699. He was again summoned to serve on grand jury March 26, 1700, when the new judges appointed by Governor Andrew Hamilton, took their seats for the first time. As has been already explained Daniel Hendrickson with many others of the Middletown people refused to serve or to recognize the authority of these judges. For this he was fined $10 and the sheriff was ordered to make the money by seizure and sale of his personal property. His brother, William Hendricks, is named among the men who broke up the court March 25, 1701, and held Governor Hamilton, the county judges and other officers prisoners for four days. The surrender by the Proprietors of the right of government to the English crown in 1702, brought about an entirely new condition of affairs, and settled for a time their old quarrels and animosities. Daniel Hendrickson* was appointed _______________ * Teuntje Thysa Laen VanPelt, the mother of Daniel Hendrickson's wife, came to Amer- ica with her father and settled at New Utrecht. L. I. Her brother Guisbert married Jannetje Adraanse Lambersen, and removed to Mon- mouth county. He wrote his name or was known as "Gisbert Laen." and he and his wife are among the organizing members of the Dutch church in 1709. He had the follow- ing children: Adraan, b.____, married Marytje Smak (Smock). Janntje. b. ____, died single. He was one of the constables of Middletown township in 1704-5 and three years later sheriff of the county. He was the first Netherlander to hold this office. We also find him and his wife, and his brother William and wife among the organizing members of the Dutch church in 1709, and a few years later he was an Elder. He was also ap- pointed captain of the militia of Mid- dletown township. Daniel Hendrickson married in Brook- lyn Catherine, daughter of Jan Janse VanDyke and Teuntje Thyse Laen Van- Pelt, his wife. Daniel Hendrickson died in January, 1728, leaving his widow and 11 children surviving

      Roelof Schenck no only owned the lands around what is now the Marlboro Brick church, but he lived and died in his dwelling house near this spot. He also married the daughter of Daniel Hendrickson, who was one of the principal organizers of the Dutch church of Monmouth county, and one of its earliest elders. His name and the name of his wife, Catharine VanDyke, appear among communicants of this church as early as 1709. Daniel Hendrickson came from Long Island and settled on the farm now owned by his great-great grandson, Hon. William Henry Hendrickson at Holland in Holmdel township. He was the first person of Holland descent to hold the office of high sheriff of this county, and he was also an officer of the county militia. He was very active in all church work, and often conducted service on the Sabbath in absence of any regular clergyman. The late Rev. G. C. Schenck had in his possession a sermon printed in Dutch language which had been written and delivered by this Daniel Hendrickson. Roelof Schenck married Geesie, one of his daughters, and Jonathan Holmes married Tuniche, another daughter. Their names also appear among communicants of this church on pages 86- 87 of Wells' memorial address. Roelof Schenck and Jonathan Holmes, his sons- in-law, were appointed executors of his will and settled up his estate. Hendrick, a son of Roelof Schenck. married Catharine, a daughter of Jonathan Holmes, his own cousin, and his and her children were therefore doubly the grandchildren of this Daniel Hendrickson.

      Roelof Schenck and his wife, Geesie Hendrickson, together with their son, Hendrick Schenck, and his wife, Catharine Holmes, are all buried in the Scheck-Couwenhoven burying ground in Pleasant Valley, Holmdel township.

      The following is a certified copy of his will recorded in Book No. 2 of Wills, p. 491, etc. The scrivener who wrote it was evidently ignorant of the Dutch language as he has given the English names for some of the children, while he has spelled others according to sound. Tryntje is Dutch for Catherine, but in writing the name of Daniel Hendrickson's wife he spells it "Taytye."

      Daniel's will is dated Nov. 16,1727 and recorded Jan 29, 1727 which does no make a lot of sence. It is more probable that Daniel's will was recorded in Jan. 1727/1728.
