  • Arien Willemsen Bennet witnessed the baptism of Angenietje Bennet , daughter of Jacob Adriaense Bennet and Barbara Verdon, on 8 September 1700 at Old First Dutch Reformed Church, Breuckelen (Brooklyn), Kings Co., Long Island, New York, (witnesses: Arje Bennet, Angenietie his wife).23
  • Arien Willemsen Bennet witnessed the baptism of Jacob Van Doorn , son of Jacob Van Doorn and Maria Adriaense Bennet, on 27 April 1703 at Old First Dutch Reformed Church, Breuckelen (Brooklyn), Kings Co., Long Island, New York, (sponsors Arien Bennet, Angenietje Bennet).24

  • Adriaen did not leave a will, and there are gaps in the Brooklyn Dutch Church records during the period in which his children were born, so a precise record of his family is difficult to construct. The last confirmed record of Adriaen is 7 Oct 1703, when he was a baptism sponsor.26
  • W. V. Ledley (NYGBR 93:199-200) assigns two additional sons, Willem (no. 8) and Cornelis (no. 13) to Adriaen Bennet, calling them "perhaps." No evidence that either existed has been found.27

Incorrectly places Daniel as a son of Effie Amack and Joseph Davis, citing Ledley, "Bennet" (note 101), RECORD 95 (1964):20-21. Ledley apparently did not consult the complete will or probate file of Jacob Bennet, but instead relied upon the abstract in NJA First Series vol. 41, Wills, vol. 12, page 32, which is in error.
