["In 1820 there are said to have been 7000 Demarests, who were Huguenots, mostly in Bergen and Rockland counties." .... "Our common ancestor was David desMarets, born in 1620 at Beauchamps, near Amiens, in the district of Cambray, France. He was the son of Jean and Margrieta deHerville desMarets. They moved to Middleburg, on the island of Walcheren off the west coast of Holland (because of the religious persecution of Protestants), then to Germany and in 1651 were living within the German Palatinate at Mannheim. With a number of other French families from Mannheim they sailed down the Rhine, and after a short stay in Amsterdam came to New Netherlands on the ship Bontekoe (The Spotted Cow), skipper Jan Bergen, and the date April 16, 1663 may have been that of departure from Holland, or arrival in America. The passenger list includes David deMaire from Picardie, his wife and children." Bold added by M. Stone.]
