  1. [S302] Miner Descent, online minerdescent.com, Aert (Aart) Jacobsen was born in 1620 in Wagenengin, Gelderland, Holland. He is the ancestor of all the families mentioned in the earliest town and church records of Ulster and Dutchess Counties, NY., under the names of Van Wageninge and Van Wagenen, came from [Van in Dutch meaning "from" or "of"] Wageningen, a town near the Rhine, ten miles west of Arnheim in Guelderland. Later his children, in accordance with the custom of the early Dutch settlers, adopted the name of that town (Wageningen) as a surname. Interestingly, he his called Van van Achtienhoven in a 1663 bond and his daughter Neeltje was said (in her marriage record) to have been born in the small village of Achtienhooven (meaning “eighteen farms”) in South Holland, a few miles northwest of Woerden (there is another village of the same name just north of Utrecht. ) Maybe he lived in both places.

    His father was Jacob Aertse AERTSE Wagenaar. He married Annetje GERRITS VanDen BURG in 1648 in Achtienhooven, Holland.

    The records of the Reformed people of Achttienhoven in the province of Utrecht are to be found in the Westbroek church books. The marriages records do exist for the time frame 1611-1666 in Westbroek. Up to 1640 the book of Westbroek is hard to read, but we’re very lucky, because: “den 31. Maij 1640 Aert Jacobs j.g: van Acht-thienhoven EV. Annetien gerrits van Schaijck j.d: mede van Acht-thienhoven tot West broeck bevesticht den 21. Junij 1640.” (DTB Westbroek 197/53). According to the church book, they both lived in Achttienhoven and married on June 21st 1640 in Westbroek.

    Aert arrived from Holland, probably about 1650. He was the first of definite record, 21 May 1653, when with Evart PELS (his son Jacob’s father-in-law) and others he took the oath of allegiance to the patron at Fort Orange. He purchased land in Esopus, 17 Sep 1660. Aert died before 1668 in Kingston, New York.
