"Four persons of the name of Hoogland emigrated to this country during the Dutch rule. These were:
CORNELIS DIRCKSEN HOOCHLANDT, found here as early as 1638, and previously of Amsterdam, as various records show;
CHRIST0FFEL HOOGLANDT, from Haarlem,whose name first appears upon our records in I655;
DIRCK JANSEN HOOGLANDT, who came out in 1657 from Maerseveen; and
CORNELIS ANDRIESZEN HOOGLAND, who emigrated from the Hague in 1658.
We have found no direct evidence of blood relationship between any of these persons; though the name Dirck, common to three of them, might seem to indicate it. And as Christoffel (or Christopher) called his eldest son Dirck, that was probably his father’s name, and the father of Dirck Jansen being named Jan, the two fathers
(said Dirck and Jan) could have been brothers also of Cornelis Dircksen—and all this in harmony with dates and fixed rules of Dutch nomenclature. But while this is possible, such agreement touching Christian names, so much in use as were these, may be merely accidental; and there is not observed that friendly intercourse between the several families, and especially that between Christopher and the others, which would be expected where so close a relationship existed. As to the friendship afterwards subsisting between Dirck Cornelissen (son of Cornelis Dircksen) and Dirck Jansen, as shown in their business dealings with each other, it may have come about very naturally through marriage, by which means they did become related, and Dirck Cornelissen, though the younger of the two, became an uncle to Dirck Jansen. Furthermore. Cornelis Dircksen and Christopher had different ways of spelling their name (the one Hoochlandt, the other Hooglandt), which docs not favor a near relationship."2
