Ledley includes Janneka/Jane twice in the genealogy. The first family in which she is listed is the family of "Eleanor Bennet and John Bennet." Ledley is unable to place John Bennet and is of the assumption that Eleanor is a daugter of Isaac Bennet (#73) and Elizabeth Aerson. In actuality she is Helena Van Pelt, the wife of Johannes/John Bennet (#234) who is a son of Jacobus Bennet (#91) and Elizabeth Brouwer. Helena is recorded with her married name (Elena Bennet) in the baptism record of her daughter Janneka. Hereinafter cited as "Willem Adriaense Bennet of Brooklyn."

  • He married Agnietje Bennet, daughter of Isaac Adriaense Bennet and Magdalena Joosten, before 1732.5
  • Johannes Bennet was named in his father's will dated on 14 September 1702 (third son mentioned).6
  • His baptism was either delayed, or he was a second son named Johannes born posthumously (with the first Johannes being named in his father's will).

  • Johannes Bennet witnessed the baptism of Jannetje Bennet , daughter of Abraham Bennet and Jannetje Suydam, on 11 September 1743 at Reformed Dutch Congregations, Freehold and Middletown, Monmouth Co., New Jersey, (witnesses: Joh: Bennit, Agnietje Bennit).10

Ledley, "Willem Adriaense Bennet of Brooklyn, N.Y., and Some of His Descendants", New York Genealogical and Biographical Record Vols.93, pp. 193-204; 94, pp. 34-41, 107-114, 156-169, 205-213; Vol. 95, pp. 10-27, 155-165, 204-207 (1962-1964): 94:158, #112, and 95:206 where his is given #113. Ledley admitts that he is uncertain about Johannes' life as an adult. His explanations and reasoning regarding Johannes seem to create more confusion. Mentioned is a Johannes Bennet married to a Magdalena Bennet. This Johannes Bennet was likely #85, son of Abraham Bennet and Jannetje Folkerts. It was his first marriage and Magdalena lived only a few years afterwards. Johannes #85 married as his second wife, Styntje Suydam. Johannes #85 and Magdalena, who is most likely #53, daughter of Adriaen Bennet and Barbara Vonk, had a daughter, Jannetje, baptized in Bucks County on 25 Sep 1748. Based upon a deed dated 14 Nov 1768 in Bucks County, a second child, Isaac, is added to the family of Johannes Bennet #85 and Magdalena Bennet. Finally Ledley mentions the baptisms of three children (Maria, Jan and Permelia) to a Johannes Bennet in the Reformed Dutch Church at Churchville for whom no mother is recorded. The baptisms occur in 1757, 1759 and 1760, the last having a Sophia Bennet as sponsor. Ledley is unsure as to why a mother was not mentioned. From reviewing all the baptism records in the Churchville RDC, it appears that when a mother is not mentioned it is because she is not a member of the church and is probably of English ancestry. It may be that this Johannes is John Bennet #164 who was married to Anna Jones in Bucks Co. in 1761. Their marriage may not have been recognized by the church until she became a member. In conclusion, there is no evidence that any of the above mentioned families or situations apply to Johannes Bennet #112/113.. Hereinafter cited as "Willem Adriaense Bennet of Brooklyn."

John Bennet1

b. circa 1718
  • John Bennet was born circa 1718 at probably Brooklyn, Kings Co., New York.3
  • He married Annatje Remsen at Reformed Protestant Dutch Church, Flatbush, Kings Co., Long Island, New York, on 19 August 1746.3,4
  • "It appears that John removed from Kings County to the vicinity of Six Mile Run in New Jersey where his two children of record were baptized. In those records the mother was named Annatje, and Mr. Eardeley in his manuscript on the family in the Long Island Historical Society state that she was Annatje Remsen whom he married on Aug 19, 1746. While this is somewhat late in comparison with his presumed date of birth, it is not unduly so, and fits well with the birth years of known children at Six Mile Run."1
  • Ledley lists only two children for John Bennet and Antje Remsen (Isaac and Neeltje). Others per Mike Morrissey (e-mail August 24, 2012).
  • Ledley (NYGBR 95:26) places John Bennet (#240) as a son of a Jan Bennet (#92) and a supposed wife named Anna. This placement appears to be incorrect.2
