(Van Vliet Gen.) Landing at New Amsterdam 13 June 1662, he shortly appeared in the records of "the Esopus" (Kingston). By grant and purchase he became owner of several land parcels in Kingston and adjacent parts of Ulster Co.
 In the Indian attack of June, 1663, one of his daughters was captured with other settlers, but they were soon recovered.
 Adrien apparently had died by 1 Sep 1689 when there are records that his sons either signed or did not appear to sign the oath of allegiance.
