Wilhelmus Bennet1

b. circa 1737, d. 7 November 1776
  • Wilhelmus Bennet was born circa 1737 at probably Gowanus, Kings Co., Long Island, New York.2
  • He possibly married Maria Van Pelt on 19 March 1761 at New York (date of lic.).3
  • Wilhelmus Bennet died on 7 November 1776.2
  • He was named in his father's will dated on 21 December 1755.4
  • On 19 Feb 1763, William Bennet and his wife Maria sold a farm of seventy acres in Gowanus to Tunis Bergen. In addition he mortgaged a farm of 67 or 74 acres in Gowanus, the mortgage also bought by Tunis Bergen. After William died, and his son and heir, William, went to Nova Scotia, the mortgage was foreclosed. The son William returned in 1788 and attempted to redeem the mortgage, but his suit was denied and upon his failure to pay the costs, he was imprisoned for a short time. In 1834, some descendants, believing that they had been defrauded of the property, took forcible possession but were soon ejected and ordered to pay the costs of the suit.2
  • Benjamin Bennet is a possible son of Wilhelmus Bennet.5

Willem Willemszen Bennet1

b. 1638 or 1639, d. between April 1689 and 1698
  • Willem Willemszen Bennet was born in 1638 or 1639 at New Amsterdam.2
  • He married Gertrude Van Mulheym at Reformed Dutch Church, New Amsterdam, on 9 April 1660.3
  • Willem Willemszen Bennet possibly died between April 1689 and 1698 when he is mentioned on a deed, and when is not found on the Brooklyn census.
  • Also known as Willem Willemse.4
  • On 18 Dec 1658, a suit was initiated by Thomas Verdon before the Orphan Master's Court at City Hall, New Amsterdam, "Mr. Paulus Van der Beek appears in the place of Tomas Verdon's son and is (directed), that when Tomas Verdon comes, he is to make a settlement of his wife's (Mary Badies's) estate." Apparently this was not completed, and four years later on 8 Feb 1663, Adam Brouwer (for his wife Magdalena Verdon), Thomas Verdon, and Arien Willemsen (Bennet) again appeared before the Orphan Master's Court and requested action in that Paulus Van der Beek should be ordered to let them have "their father's property." A week later on 15 Feb 1663, their mother Marritie Tomas (Mary Badie) made her deposition before the Orphan Master's Court. The Orphan Master's Court decided that the property and persons were not within their jurisdiction and suggested that the petitioners address themselves to the Director General and Council of New Netherlands. On 1 March 1664, a petition by "Willem Willemsen Bennet, Thomas Verdon, Adam Brouwer, and Adriaen Willemsen (Bennet), coheirs of Thomas (error for Jacob) Vardon, praying that Paulus van der Beecq, husband of said Vardon's widow (Mary Badie), may be obliged to account for their paternal estate." This was followed on 10 May 1664 by a warrent to "Sheriff Hegeman to put Adriaen, William, and Marietje Williamsen Bennet in possession of a portion of their late father's lands, pending their suit against Paulus van der Beecq, their stepfather."5,6
  • Willem owned a farm in Gowanus which later belonged to Cornelis W. Bennet. He was the ancestor of the Bennets of New Utrecht, Bushwick, and of one line in Monmouth County, New Jersey. At an earlier time in his life, however, it appears that he lived in New Amsterdam. He is called "Van Amsterdam in N. Nederlt" on the record of his marriage, and on 25 Dec. 1661 he was admitted as a member to the Reformed Dutch Church in Brooklyn with a letter from the Church in New Amsterdam. In 1676 he was on the assessment roll of Brooklyn (of which Gowanus was then a part) with 1 poll, 2 horses, 2 horses of 1 year, 2 oxen, 5 cows, 4 cows of two years, 3 cows of one year, valued at £99:10 and 13 1/2 morgens of land valued at £27, total £126:10. He is certainly the "William Bennings" in the Brooklyn Assessment of 1683 where his total holdings incresed to £149. Willem's original holdings were presumed to be from his share in the distribution of Bennet lands resulting from legal action taken by him, his brother Adriaen, and his Verdon half brother and sister against Paulus Van der Beek, their common step-father. Van der Beek, in the right of his wife, their mother, had continued to hold the Bennet property after the children came of age.7
  • He and Gertrude Van Mulheym were members of the at Old First Dutch Reformed Church, Breuckelen (Brooklyn), Kings Co., Long Island, New York, on 25 December 1661 with an attestation from the "Church of Amsterdam in New Netherland."8
  • New Netherland surrendered to the English invasion fleet in early September 1664. The New Amsterdam Court records of 13 Oct 1664 show that "Willem Willemszen and Thomas Verdon, inhabitants of Gowanus, appearing with them Thomas Fransen, carman, complain of the great injury inflicted on them by some English, about twenty persons in number from one of the ships lying in the Bay...The above named Willem Willemszen declares that they took away his powder, lead, and gun; also the stocking and shoes from his feet; further six to seven pounds of rolled tobacco just spun; and a young hog together with a red under-waistcoat. And with a hanger they severly struck Tomas Verdon's wife, whilst the above-named Verdon was out with the above-named Tomas Fransen, and inflicted a blood wound on her arm. (They also) took the goods out of the chest and strewed them over the floor, keeping watch at the door, so that he should not run out to call the neighbors; and when they missed him, because he climbed out through a back window, they hastily took the goods from the chest and strewed them over the floor, as already declared."9
  • Willem Willemszen Bennet and Thomas Verdon, were both nominated as candidates from Gowanus for the positions of elder and deacon to the Reformed Dutch Church at Brooklyn. The third candidate was Jan Pietersen., 27 February 1664.10
  • On 13 May 1670 Willem Willemsse Bennit, elder, witnessed the confirmation of Dirck Storm, Jan Pieterssen Mackelijck and Stijntien Janssen, his wife, as members of the Breuckelen Reformed Dutch Church.11
  • Willem Willemsen is listed among the "Old Members" and as an Elder of the Brooklyn Reformed Dutch Church on 12 March 1677, and again on 11 June 1677. Either he, or his son of the same name, took the oath of allegiance in Brooklyn in the fall of 1687. Only one Willem Bennet took the oath, and although he was old enough, the son if still living with his father, would not have been required to. In a deed dated 20 April 1689 from his mother, Mary Badie to his brother Adriaen, Willem Willemse Bennet's land is referred to in a fashion that indicates he was alive at the time. Only one Willem Bennet appears on the 1698 census in Brooklyn, with five children, and so is more likely the son.9,12
  • Willem Willemszen Bennet and Gertrude Van Mulheym were members of the at Reformed Protestant Dutch Church, Flatbush, Kings Co., Long Island, New York, in 1677 at Gowanus.13
  • In November 1677 At Brooklyn, Anthonis Gijsbertz Boogaard was elected elder in place of Willem Willemsz Bennet.14
  • Willem Willemszen Bennet and Gertrude Van Mulheym were members of the at Reformed Protestant Dutch Church, Flatbush, Kings Co., Long Island, New York, on 19 November 1679 (at) Gowanus.15
  • Willem Willemszen Bennet witnessed the baptism of Willemtje Schaers , daughter of Johannes Christoffel Schaers and Marritje Willemse, on 27 February 1681 at New Utrecht, Kings Co., Long Island, New York, (sponsors Willem Willemsz Bennet, Agnietje Jans van Dijck).16
  • Willem Willemszen Bennet was Elder of at Brooklyn, Kings Co., Long Island, New York, on 19 November 1684 in place of Jan Damen.17
  • Ledley (NYGBR 93:203) includes in the family of Willem Bennet two additional daughters, Geertruyd ("probable") and Aeltje ("perhaps"). No evidence exists for either. Ledley mention baptism sponsor appearances for a Geertruy/Geertruydt Bennet, who most certainly is Gertrude Van Mulheym under disguise of her married name. The Aeltje Bennit, in the 1696 Brooklyn Church members list, was the wife of Jan Willemse Bennet.18

Ledley states that he was "probably born about 1711 in Kings County." However, if he is the William Bennet found on the list of inhabitants at Flatbush in 1738, which actual date was 1731, with four children under age 10, then he could not have been born as late as 1711. He more likely was born ten or more years earlier. Hereinafter cited as "Willem Adriaense Bennet of Brooklyn."
  3. [S119] Notes:Possible marriage. That Willem Bennet's wife was name Antje is certain. That she was Annatje Holsaert is less certain. The placement of Annatje Holsaert as the wife of William Bennet is based upon the fact that William Bennet, called "brother-in-law" administered the estate of Johannes Holsaert in 1732. It is recognized that there are multiple ways in which two men can be related as "brother-in-law" and this is only one of them.

  • William Bennet was baptized on 7 April 1734 at Reformed Dutch Church, New Utrecht, Kings Co., Long Island, New York.2

  • In 1780 William Bennet resided at Oyster Bay, Queens Co., Long Island, New York.3
  • His will was dated on 7 October 1780 William Bennet, of the township of Oyster Bay, Queens County. My debts to be paid out of my moveable estate, if not sufficient then my Executors to sell such of my real estate as to discharge my debts and nomore. If my moveable estate should be likely to overpay my debts my Executors to save the best of my household goods and let my family have the use of them till my youngest daughter be eighteen then living. If after said sales there should be some "overplush" money after my debts are paid, then it to be put at interest for the benefit of my children. I order my Executors to sell my real estate when my youngest daughter is eighteen or when my youngest child is eighteen or twenty, as life is uncertain, the proceeds to be divided as follows: To my beloved wife Elizabeth, one third of the money; to my son Henry, £50; the remainder equally divided between all my children, Elizabeth, Abigail, Phebe, Henry and Sarah, at the time my place is sold; also the household goods that my family have the use of to be divided between all my children living when my place is sold. I make my friend, James Carpenter, Executor, and my neighbors, William Mudge, Isaac Coles and Jordan Coles, all of the township above mentioned, my Executors, they to be reasonably paid for their time and expence. Dated 7th day of the 19th month 1780. Witnesses, James Armstrong, Robert Russel, Jacob Coles (of Oyster Bay, yeoman). Proved at Queens County, 9 December 1785.3
  • The style in which is will is dated (7th day of 10th month 1780), and the fact that baptism records for children are not found in the Oyster Bay Dutch Church, may imply that William was a Quaker.

William Bennet1

b. 21 March 1744
  • William Bennet was baptized on 21 March 1744 at Reformed Dutch Church, Churchville, Bucks Co., Pennsylvania; sponsors Willem Bennet and Geertje Suydam.2
  • He is said to have married Elizabeth Wynkoop before 1768 (proof of the identity of William Bennet's wife is lacking).3
  • William Bennet was a Revolutionary War soldier. Served as a Trooper in the Light Horse of Bucks County, commissioned 10 May 1778.3
  • The wife of William Bennet, and mother of his three children is stated to be Elizabeth Wynkoop, sister to Gerardus Wynkoop who was the husband of William's sister Elizabeth Bennet. This as stated by Ledley in NYGBR 94 (1963):213. The baptism records of the three children do not record a mother (probably because the mother was not baptized herself and was not a member of the church). The sponsor for two of the baptisms was an Elizabeth Wynkoop. The identification of Elizabeth Wynkoop as William Bennet's wife is questionable.

Lived in Bucks Co., Pa. until after his father's death. In the latter's will he was left his blacksmith's tools and initially followed that trade. William moved to Long Island probably before Nov 20, 1758, when he obtained a New York license to marry Maria Van Deventer (No. 221 in The Van Deventer Family, page 227). Maria Bennet, sister of Jacobus Van Deventer of Flatbush was named in his will dated 4 Oct 1799. Barnet Bennet of Jamaica refused to serve as executor (Kings Co. Will Abstracts 2:30).
