  • JOHANNIS MICHIELSEN VREELAND2 (MICHIEL JANSEN1) was bap. Oct 01, 1656 (RDC New Amsterdam record; wit: Nicholas Backer, Samuel Etsal, Anna Elizabeth Maskop), and died Jun 26, bd. Jun 29, 1713 (RDC Bergen record #226). He married CLAESJE DIRCKSE BRAECKE May 14, 1682, after banns published Apr 30, 1682 (RDC Bergen record #51), daughter of DIRCK BRAECKE and NEESJE JACOBS. She was bap. Mar 07, 1658/59 (RDC New Amsterdam record; wit: Thomas Hall, Geesje Steeds).

    Children of JOHANNIS VREELAND and CLAESJE BRAECKE are:

    1. CHILD VREELAND3, b. Abt. Mar 08, 1682/83, bd. Mar 8, 1683 (RDC Bergen record #66).
    2. MICHAEL VREELAND, b. in Acquackanonck, NJ; bap. Sep 14, 1684 (RDC New Amsterdam record; wit: Dirck Claeszen, Fytie Hartmens); bd. Jan 27, 1709/10, 132nd w/ pall, along w/ sister, Seitje (RDC Bergen record #213).
    3. DIRCK JOHANNES VREELAND, b. in Hackensack, NJ, bap. Oct 11, 1686 (RDC Bergen record #168; wit: Metje Dirckse, Elyas Magielse Vreelant); d. May 30, 1773; m.

    4. ENOCH VREELAND, b. in Communipaw, NJ; bap. Oct 28, 1688 (RDC New Amsterdam record; wit: Enoch Michielszen, Marritje Dircx); bd. Nov 9, 1688 (RDC Bergen record #97); {NGV & Winfield both say he married "Mercy ____," but this cannot be, if the "son" buried in record #97 is, indeed, Enoch. Child #1 died at birth; #2, Michael, was buried (by name) w/ sister, Seitje; #3 Dirck lived into adulthood; and there are no other sons that we know about. We have no idea exactly where this marriage to Mercy came from, except that there is an Abraham Vreeland, son of Enoch Vreeland (grandson of Enoch Michielsen, and married to Rachel Spier) who married Mercy Badgely. But such an odd error!!}
    5. FITJE [SEITJE] VREELAND, bap. Oct 28, 1688 (no RDC Bergen or New Amsterdam record); bd. Jan 27, 1709/10 (RDC Bergen record #213, 132nd w/ pall, along w/ brother, Michiel) (unmarried, as per Winfield).

    10. JOHANNIS J. VREELAND, b. Jul 01, 1705 in Gemenopa, NJ, bap. Oct. 8, 1705 (RDC Bergen record #400); d. Feb 11, bd. Feb 13, 1783 (RDC Bergen record #560); m. ANTJE DIEDRICKS, 1726, in the Old Bergen Church (RDC Bergen record #202); b. Oct 27, 1700 (RDC Bergen record #355), daughter of WANDER DIDERICKX and AELTJE GERRITS; d. Sep 19, bd.

  • CORNELIS MICHIELSEN VREELAND2 (MICHIEL JANSEN1) was bap. Jun 03, 1660 (RDC New Amsterdam record), and died ?May 02, 1727. He married METJE DIRCKSE BRAECKE w/ certificate to NY May 11, 1681 (RDC Bergen record #44), daughter of DIRCK BRAECKE and NEESJE JACOBS. She was born Jun 03, 1657, and died May, 1717 (or 1727? RDC Bergen record #232 blurred).
    Winfield states that Cornelis m. (2) Lysbet Jacobs, wid., Apr 7, 1692. RDC New Amsterdam mentions her as a widow of Cornelis Michielse (see link to New Amsterdam marriages, on the home page). This is the SAME Cornelis who married Niefje Ysbrants, and had children between 1680-1685 (see bottom of this page), while Cornelis & Metje were still having children. We believe, therefore, that neither Lysbet Jacobs nore Niefje Ysbrants ever married Cornelis Michielsen Vreeland.

    Children of CORNELIS VREELAND and METJE BRAECKE are:

    1. AAGTJE CORNELISSE VREELAND, bap. Apr 18, 1682 (RDC Bergen record #106; wit: Dirck Claesen Braak, Freytie [sic] Hertmans); m. ROELOF HELMIGSE VAN HOUTEN, Apr 21, 1701, following banns published Apr 6, 1701 (RDC Bergen record #141); he was b. Jun 11, 1677 (RDC Bergen record #47) and bap. Jun 13, 1677 (RDC New Amsterdam record; wit: Pieter Magelyn, Gerritie Cornelis), son of HELMIGH ROELOFSE VAN HOUTEN and JANNETJE PIETERSE MERSELIS; d. 1770.
    2. FITJE VREELAND, b. in Gemenopa, NJ, bap. Jul 22, 1685 (RDC New Amsterdam record; wit: Herman Michielszen, Marritje Dircx); d. Oct 19, 1756, Bayonne, Bergen Co., NJ; bd. Constable's Hook Graveyard, NJ; m. LAURENS ANDRIES VAN BUSKIRK, Oct 09, 1709, following banns published Sep 18 1709 (RDC Bergen record #173); b. 1687; d. Dec 15, 1752.
    3. JANNETJE CORNELISSE VREELAND, b. Nov 21, 1688; d. Apr 12, 1769; m. DANIEL [WALICHS] VAN WINKLE, Sep 03, 1709; b. Jul 28, 1681; d. 1757.

    5. METJE VREELAND, b. Oct 03, 1698 (Bergen RDC record #329); m. RYNIER VAN GIESEN; b. Aug 06, 1694.

    Note: Some books have listed the following 3 children as belonging to Cornelis:
    • MICHAEL VREELAND, bap. Aug 02, 1685; d. infancy.
    • MICHAEL VREELAND, bap. Feb 23, 1686/87.
    • NEELTJE VREELAND, bap. Jul 23, 1690.
    However, they are listed by RDC New Amsterdam as having the parents Cornelis Michielszen & Niefje Ysbrants -- clearly a different family!
