Gideon Merlitt or Mellott arrived in New Amsterdam on 12 October 1662 on the ship the Church Pumerland, or "De Purmerlander Kerck", with Captain Benjamin Barentsz in command. The passenger lists "Gideon Merlitt, wife and four children ages, 15, 8, 6 and 4 years old. This was copied from the Holland Society of New York's Yearbook of 1902, page 22.

This French Hugenot family had fled to Holland earlier because of religious persecution. Children of Gideon Mellott and Marie Martin are:

1. John Peterson Mellott, born April 18, 1658 in Manheim, Germany; died 1704 in Middlesex County, New Jersey; married Marie Bellmain.

2. Paul Mellott.

3. Josias Mellott.

Gideon was married in the Walloon Church at Leiden to a woman named Marguerite Martijn on 21 August 1644. According to their marriage record, Gideon had arrived at Leiden from Gouda in the Netherlands during the month of December 1643, while Marguerite had come from the Limburg region in the southeast part of Holland and northeast Belgium. Gideon was a carpenter by trade.

In about 1650, Gideon and Marguerite left Leiden and moved to the City of Mannheim in the Palatinate of Germany (now the State of Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany), where they remained for nearly twelve years. Gideon, his wife, Marguerite, four sons aged 15, 8, 6, and 4, Gideon's uncle, Philip Merlet, and his wife's cousin, Jeanne Martijn, later emigrated to America, arriving in the Dutch colony of New Amsterdam (now New York City, New York) on 12 October 1662 aboard the ship "De Purmerlander Kerck."

Sometime later, Gideon and Marguerite appear to have moved to Piscataway in the Province of East Jersey (now within Middlesex County, New Jersey), where they resided for the remainder of their lives. Marguerite is believed to have died at Piscataway on 25 August 1681, while Gideon died there during the month of February 1682/83.

"Received as member of the Church of Leide December, 1651, Merlet, Gedeon, and Marguerite his wife, according to the records of Paris."

"Baptized in the Church of Mannheim the 7th of February, 1656, Merlette, Abraham, son of Gedeon and Marguerite Martin."

"Baptized in the Church of Mannheim (The French Huguenot Church) May 2, 1658 Merlet, Jean Pierre, son of Gedeon and Marguerite Martin."

"Member of the Church of Leide, Merlet, Gedeon, and his wife, part of the record of March 15, 1664."

[Please note: Although Gedeon and Marguerite (Martin) Merlet had emigrated to New Amsterdam in 1662, while it was still in the control of the Dutch, they evidently were still considered members of the Church at Leyden, Holland.]

!Betrothal: Wallon Church of Leyden, Holland, Betrothalbook N, p. 114: "Aenget. de Augusti 1644. Gedeon Merleth, timmerman, jongman van de Rousy, wonende op de Santestraet, vergesz. met Philip Merleth, sijn oom, wonende mede aldaer. Margriet Martijn, jongedr. van Limborch, wonende op de Langegraft, vergesz. met Jenne Martijn, haer nicht, wonende mede aldaer."

Translation is as follows:

Entered August 6, 1644. Gedeon Merlet, a carpenter from Rousy, dwelling in "Sand Street", accompanied by Phillipe Merlet, his uncle, also living there with Marguerite Martijn (Martin) from Limbourg, accompanied by Jenne Jeanne) Martijn, her cousin, also living there.

Gedeon Merlet and Maguerite Martijn (Martin) were married in the Walloon Church of Leyden on August 21, 1644. There are baptismal reccords there for their children on these dates:

"September 17, 1645: Josias (Josue), son of Gedeon Merlette. The witnesses were Claude Marcy, Jean Martijn, Jeanne Martijn, and Clasinne Tertelim."

"November 11, 1646: Marie, daughter of Gedeon Merlette. Witnesses were Daniel Fromavesijn, Francois Charret, Jacquemine du Lon, and Catherine de la Tour."

"July 26, 1648: Esechias, son of Gedeon Merlette and Marguerite Martin. Witnesses were Paul Merlette, Augustin Goftin, Marie Cordies."

After living in Leyden from about 1643 until the 1650's, Gedeon, Marguerite and the first three children moved to Mannheim, in the German Palatinate, an area known as a haven for French Huguenots at that time. There two more sons were born and baptized, namely Abraham and Jean Pierre MERLET, MERLETTE, MARLETTE or MARLET.

From the records of the French Huguenot Church of Mannheim, Germany:

"On February 7, 1656, was baptized in the Church of Mannheim, Merlette, Abraham, son of Gedeon and Marguerite Martin."

"On May 2, 1658 was baptized in the Church of Mannheim, Merlet, Jean Pierre, son of Gedeon and Marguerite Martin."

Evidently the family returned to Holland between 1658 and 1662. They resumed their membership at the Walloon Church of Leyden.

From SHIP PASSENGER LISTS: NEW YORK AND NEW JERSEY (1600-1825), edited and indexed by Carl Boyer, 3rd (Self-Published: Newhall, CA, 1978), p. 130.

"October 12, 1662. In De Purmerlander Kerck Gedeon Merlitt, wife and four children, 15, 8, 6, and 4 years old."

[The four sons were Josue or Josias; Poulus or Paul; Jean Pierre or John Peter; Abraham.]

[Note that Gedeon's children Maria and Eseschias Merlet had died before the family emigrated from Holland in 1662. One more child, Anne Merlet was born after arriving in New Amsterdam.]
