      The genealogy lineage was obtained beginning with the ancestor fromthe Netherlands to America and the subsequent generations listed inthe book to c.1882 A.D. Even though the book is well over a hundredyears old and the copyright laws are now somewhat laxed with it'susage, only excerpts were noted in this work. The full lineage forthose that are interested is available on the Internet site listedabove.
      START, (Page 18): "EVERT JANSEN WENDEL, the first ancestor of thename who came to these shores, was born in the year 1615, in the cityof Embden, East Friesland (now Hanover), upon the confines of theUnited Provinces of Holland. It was from thence that he emigratedunder the Dutch West India Company to New Netherland, in America,reaching that province in 1640. He was resident at New Amsterdam, onthe island of Manhattan (the present site of the city of New (Page 19)York, for nearly five years subsequent to his arrival, at the end ofthat time removing to the growing settlement upon the Mauritius (asthe Dutch called the Hudson), which had risen around the early tradingpost of Fort Orange. The exceptional facilities for traffic with theIndians inhabiting the great tract of forest country extending thencefar into the interior, made this place, commercial centre of the greatPatroon estate of Rensselaerswyek, a most attractive location for suchsettlers in the new province as came thither for the purpose of traderather than with agricultural intent, although great encouragement wasalso offered to this interest through the efforts of the Patroon.Here Wendel settled, and obtained the requisite license to deal withthe Indians in beavers and peltries, his first habitation beingevidently one of the few houses gathered closely under the guns ofFort Orange. These first dwellings, constituting the earlier portionof the settlement, were removed by order of Governor Petrus Stuyvesantin 1652, when he claimed all land within "two hundred and fiftyRhynland rods" of the fort, as the property of the Dutch West IndiaCompany.
      Due compensation, however, to the owners of the confiscated propertywas not omitted, as new patents of land were thereupon granted themupon the site of the later settlement, where now stands the city ofAlbany. From the records of that city, we ascertain that the grant toWendel at the time by the worthy governor consisted of "a certainlotte of grounde situate lying and being on ye South side of ye Citty,on ye East side of ye Hill, abutting to ye North of ye Land andOrchard belonging to Isaac Casperse." It is stated by ProfessorPearson that his residence was at a later period in a house situatedat the corner of James and State (then Yonker) Streets, in Albany, ator about 1700. He lived in the town during a long period of years,closed by his death in 1709, at an advanced age, and was, we believe,buried under the old church then stand- (Page 20) ing at the junctionof Yonker and Handelaer Straats (the present State Street andBroadway) in Albany. It was his fortune to fill various offices oftrust and station in the settlement, among which were the positions ofRegerenden DiJuken of the Reformed Protestant Dutch Church, in 1656,and Magistrate of Fort Orange in 1660-61.
      Evert Janse Wendel was married (July 31, 1644) by the DominieEverhardus Bogardus, in the Reformed Protestant Dutch Church at NewAmsterdam, to Susanna, the third daughter of Philip Du Trieux,"Marshal of New Netherland," and his wife Susanna, of Smit's Valley,in New Amsterdam, and by her he had issue six children, from whom,together with the offspring of his second subsequent marriage, throughmatrimonial alliances formed in succeeding generations, may be tracedthe lineage of the present representatives of the name, and othersaffiliated therewith, through New England and the Middle States.Issue:" As Listed. (Page 21) "His first wife dying, Evert JanseWendel was again married (1663) to Maritje Abrahamse Vosburgh ofBeverwyck, widow of Tomas Jansen Mingael, by whom he had furtherissue, to wit:" As Listed. "Upon the death of his second wife, EvertJanse Wendel, according to the records, married Ariaantje ________,but left no issue by her."
