  • Matthys Cornelissen Van Horne (Cornelissen meaning son of Cornelius) came to the Long Island (called Flat Lands at the time) New York Dutch towns ca. 1663. About 30 years later he married Fytie Brouwer, b. 1656/59 daughter of Adam Brouwer and Magdalena Jacobse Verdon. They’re marriage intention is dated, 20 Feb 1692 at Flatbush, New New York.[1] Fytje was the widow of Evertt Hendricksen or Evertt Hendricks Van Gelder, m. ca. 1676. Fytie and Evert Hendrickson (Van Gelder) had the following children: Adolph, Jacobus, Altje, Hendrick, and Jannitje. Matthyse and Fytie had two sons who became Cornelius and Abraham Van Horne first of Monmouth County New Jersey and later Hunterdon County New Jersey.
  • New Amsterdam was seized by England in 1664 from the Dutch and was renamed New York.
  • Mathias took the Oath of Allegiance to the Britsh in September of 1687 and was entered as a resident of Brooklyn, New York and had resided in New Netherlands for 24 years. [2]
  • Mathias was listed on the Tax Assessment roll of New Utrecht in 1693.
  • Mattyse was a landowner in Brooklyn who purchased 223 acres of land in Middleton Township, Monmouth County, New Jersey from Obadia Browne, son of Capt. Brown of the famous Monmouth Patent. He deeded one half of the Middleton land to each of his two sons. This may be the reason Abraham, his brother, Cornelius, and their half sister, Sarah, moved to Monmouth County about 1718. [3]
  • Matthyse never used the surname Van Horne.

  1. Cornelius m. Catharine Cox, Elizabeth Lawrence, Hannah Seabrook
