"His daughter and only child," sans Bensen, "married Herman Rutgers, the ancestor of the respectable family of the name among us." De Hooges died in 1658. The well-known promontory in the Highlands was called Anthony's Nose, after him. (New World Immigrants - A Consolidation of Ship Passenger Lists and Associated Data from Periodical Literature, Michael Tepper, Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., I, 22, 1979.)

He arrived in the colony of Rensselaerwyck on 4/10/1642. At the time of his death he was secretary of the colony. (Arthur James Weise, M.A., The Swartwout Chronicles 1338-1899 and The Ketelhuyn Chronicles 1451-1899, Two Directory, Printing and Bookbinding Co., 1899.)

DEHOOGES, Anthony, came to New Netherland in 1641, and next year succeeded Arent Van Curler as superintendent of the Colony Rensselaerswyck, and town clerk. His lot in Beverwyck, was on the north corner of Beaver St. and Broadwar=y. He died about 1656. his wife Eva Albertse Bratt, after his death, married Roeloff Swartwout of the Esopus in 1657. DeHooges left the following children, all living in 1657: Maticken, Anneken, Catarina, Johannes, Eleanora, being minors, they probably removed with their mother to Esopus. (Joel Munsell, Collections on the History of Albany, from its Discovery to the Present Time. With Notices of its Public Institutions, and Biographical sketches of Citizens Deceased. Albany, N.Y., by the author, Albany, New York, IV, 1865, Collections on the History of Albany, from its Discovery to the Present Time, with Notices of its Public Institutions, and Biographical Sketches of Citizens Deceased, J. Munsell, Albany, N. Y., 1871.)

-------------------- Anthony de Hooges was baptized 14 Dec 1620 in the Nieuwkerk (New Church), Amsterdam, North Holland, Netherlands, the son of Johannes de Hooges and Maria Tijron, Anthony left for the colony of Rensselaerwyck in New Netherland in 1641 on "der Connick David". Anthony had been sent to Rensselaerwyck as the assistant to Arent van Curler and later became the Secretary of the Colony. Kiliaen Van Rensselaer, the patron, seems to have had a great deal of concern and respect for Anthony.

Anthony married Eva Albertsz Bradt. Eva was baptized 9 January 1633 in Amsterdam, North Holland, Netherlands. She was the daughter of Albert Adriessen Bradt and Annetje Barents Van Rottmer. She arrived at New Amsterdam with her family in 1637 on the "Rensselaerwyck". Eva had five younger brothers, Barent, Storm (Vanderzee), Adries, Jan, Dirk, and two younger sisters, Engeltje and Gisseltje. Anthony is believed to have died on or about 11 October 1655. Eva married second Roeloff Swartwout 13 August 1657 in Albany, Albany, New York. Roeloff became the Sheriff of the Esopus in 1660. Eva must have died before 22 Nov 1691 because Roeloff is found remarrying in Bergen, New Jersey then. -------------------- Immigrated: 30 JUN 1641 Texel, Noord Holland, , THE NETHERLAND
