States that no further record of Abraham is found after the baptism of his last child in 1728. Ledley adds a son William #84, to the family of Abraham, for whom he states there is no evidence of his existance. William #84 is "created" by Ledley and made a father of William Bennet #217, who left a will in 1790 and was married twice (Catherine Ware and Mary Prall). In his 1790 will, William mentions his brothers Jacob and Hendrick, and brother-in-law Walter Hires. Walter Hires (Hyer)'s wife was Angenitje Bennet. Ledley finds no baptism records for any of these Bennets. However, baptism records for siblings Jacob, Hendrick and Agnietje are found among the children of Johannes Bennet #77 and Agnietje Bennet (both of who's parents Ledley mis-identifies). William Bennet #217 is more probably a son of Johannes Bennet #77 and Agnietje Bennet, and there is no reason to assume the existance of William Bennet #84.

  • He married first before 1696 Barbara Vonk, daughter of Cornelis Vonk and Magdalena Hendricks.3
  • Adriaen Adriaense Bennet died between 6 October 1742 and 17 November 1743 at Middlesex Co., New Jersey; (date of will and deed of heirs).
  • Also known as Aurie Bennet.4
  • He was listed as an Elder of the Six-Mile-Run Dutch Church in Somerset County, New Jersey, although his children were baptized in the Freehold-Middletown Dutch Church. "Aurie" Bennet and his wife Barbara, marked "Removed," were listed as members of the Freehold-Middletown Church probably at its organization about 1709 (undated paper GMNJ 22:3).3
  • He and Barbara Vonk were members of the at Reformed Dutch Congregations, Freehold and Middletown, Monmouth Co., New Jersey, circa 1710 (removed).5
  • Adriaen Adriaense Bennet was Elder of at Six-Mile Run Reformed Dutch Church, (Franklin Twp.), Somerset Co., New Jersey, on 15 November 1710.6

  • He was made an executor of the will of Jacob Van Doorn on 24 April 1719; proved 21 Mar 1720. Jacob van Dorn of Freehold, Monmouth County, yeoman. Wife Marytye. Children: Aria, Angletye, Christy-Ian, William, Jacob, Angenyettie, Catharine, Abraham, Peter, Isaac. Real and personal estate. Executors: Garret Schank and Aria Bennet. Witnesses: Jacob Zutven, Jan Sutven, Will'm Lawrence junior.9
  • Adriaen Adriaense Bennet witnessed the baptism of Barbara Bennet , daughter of Cornelis Bennet and Engeltje, on 7 August 1720 at First Reformed Church (Church of the Three-Mile Run), New Brunswick, Middlesex Co., New Jersey, (sponsors Arie Bennet and wife Barbara).10
  • His will was dated on 6 October 1742 apparently unrecorded and not found, but mentioned in a deed of 17 Nov 1743. In which he devised land to his wife Barbara, as long as she was his widow, and at her death it was to go to his sd. son Arie.11
  • On 17 November 1743 Cornelius Bennet, William Bennet, Isaac Bennet, Agness Bennet, Catharine Bennet & Barbara Bennet, all living & surviving children of Arie Bennet, late of Middlesex Co., NJ, dec'd quit claim land to Arie Bennet, also another of Arie Bennet, Sr.'s children. Whereas, Arie Bennet, Sr., dec'd, was seized of a tr. of land in Middlesex Co., by deed from Coert Van Voorhees & Sarah, his wife, dated 10 Apr 1740, which beg. on n. side of Cranberry Brook by William Robinson's, by Thomas Wetherill's land, to land form. of Daniel Harcuts but now of James Wilson, being 400 a.

Recorded 10 April 1751 (East Jersey Deeds, G2:460-462).11,12
  • W. V. Ledley (NYGBR 94:37) states that Adriaen possibly married as his second wife, Catherine, and that he died intestate in Brooklyn in 1731. This is incorrect as evidenced by a deed of 17 Nov 1743 which states that Arie Bennet wrote his will 6 Oct 1742, and his wife, Barbara, was mentioned in it. Ledley was apparently unaware of this deed.
  • Jan/John Bennet is placed as a son of Adriaen Bennet and Barbara Vonk by Wilson V. Ledley ("Wilem Adrianse Bennet," NYGBR 94 (1964):37,165), who states his birth as "about 1696, probably in Kings County," but offers no explanation or reason for this placement. No record of baptism is found for a son named Jan, and there is no named Jan as a party in the deed of 1743 by which heirs of Adriaen Bennet, by quit-claim deed, acknowledged property to their brother, Arie Bennet (a Jan Bennet did witness the deed). There is no evidence that supports the placement of a son named Jan (John or Johannes) in the family of Adriaen Bennet and Barbara Vonk.13,14

However, there is no record of baptism for a son, Jan (John) of Adriaen and Barbara (Vonk) Bennet. In addition, Ledley was apparently unaware of the 1743 deed in which Adriaen's heirs quit-claimed property to one of their siblings (Arie, Jr.). The deed makes no mention of a son Jan, and makes no mention of heirs of a son Jan. Placement of Jan Bennet, a.k.a. John Bennet (#49) in the family of Adriaen Bennet (#10) and Barbara Vonk is lacking proof.. Hereinafter cited as "Willem Adriaense Bennet of Brooklyn."

Aeltje Bennet1,2

b. 28 October 1722
  • Aeltje Bennet was baptized on 28 October 1722 at Reformed Dutch Church of Port Richmond, Staten Island, (Richmond Co.), New York; sponsors Philippe Cazier, Catharina Hooghland.3
  • She probably married Christoffer Van Pelt on 2 December 1751 at New Jersey (date of lic.).4,5
  • Also known as Artilly Bennit.5
  • Aeltje Bennet witnessed the baptism of Aaltye Van Pelt , daughter of Alexander Van Pelt and Jannetje Heyer, on 10 August 1760 at Reformed Dutch Congregations, Freehold and Middletown, Monmouth Co., New Jersey, (witness: Aaltye Bennit, wife of (___) V. Pelt).6
  • Ledley (NYGBR 95:25) states that Aeltje married, as her first husband, Jan/John Merrill. Evidence for this marriage is lacking and is more likely that Aeltje was married only once, to Christopher Van Pelt. The Aeltje Bennet who did marry Jan/John Merrill was more likely the daughter of Jan Willemse Bennet and his third wife, Antje Van Sicklen.

Aeltje Bennet1

b. circa 1722
  • Aeltje Bennet was named in her father's will dated on 6 May 1743.4
  • She is probably the Aeltje Bennet who married Jan/John Merrill. Ledley (NYGBR 95:25, #235 ) claims that the Aeltje Bennet who married Jan Merrill was a daughter of Jacob Bennet and Elizabeth Brouwer, and she later married Christopher Van Pelt. That claim does not appear to be likely, and the sponsors for the baptism of Aeltje's first child, Jan Merrill, would support the case for Aeltje, the daughter of Jan Willemse Bennet, as the wife of Jan/John Merrill. Aeltje then married, secondly, Pieter Haughwout.

Family 1: Jan Merrill b. b 1720, d. b 19 Oct 1747
