The following was transcribed from the Compendium of Local Biography (1899) Sequatchie & Bledsoe County:

Philip was born and reared in the city of Amsterdam, Holland, and was a graduate of one of the leading universities of the same city. He was a member of a family of great respect, and a descendant of some royal family of the kingdom who had done distinguished service for the crown, both in the Army and Navy. Evidences of these facts were known and perpetuated in the coat of arms or seal held by Philip at his death. One of the Characters represented on the seal was two single females of the family, who at some critical period of the nation singly and alone successfully held a fort during siege of the same, and for this patriotic success they were permitted, when marring, to retain the name of Hoodenpyl. One other device on the seal represented a brother in command of a fleet or ship, who had also performed meritorious acts on the sea. Philip treasured this seal as a memento of the illustrious family from which he descended, and always represented to his children and grandchildren that there was a large fortune at Amsterdam due his Naval brother from the crown for the distinguished service performed by him; that his brother was supposed to have been lost on the seas and had died without issue, and the estate would be held for a period of years by the crown and then distributed to his brothers and sisters; that he would likely die before the time or limit expired, after which any of his children could, with the seal or coat of arms, recover his portion of this vast fortune. But in the eventful and destructive events of the Civil war this coat of arms was lost or destroyed. Searching and persistent efforts have failed to discover its existence. Since that time a notice of this estate and inquiry for the heirs of Philip Hoodenpyl was published in one of the journals of Amsterdam, but to this date no effective efforts of recovery have been made.

Note: Keep in mind that Philip was born and reared in Rotterdam, Netherlands; NOT Amsterdam.

Other Notes:

James Martin Hoodenpyle (Lubbock TX) remembers;

Ernest Franklin Hoodenpyle telling him that he thought that the coat of arms burned in a house fire in the l930s somewhere around Weatherford, Tex.

Others have said that (A.J.) had the "Family Seal" which was later lost. Is this Andy? son of Peter son of Philip G. Hoodenpyl.

Father of Philip Hoodenpyl: Pieter Hodenpijl . Mother of Philip Hoodenpyl: Isabella Dinsdale.

Keep in mind that the Dutch tradition was to name the first born son (Peter) after the Paternal Grandfather and the first born daughter (Isabella) after the Maternal Grandmother.

I have REMOVED these updates. They do NOT belong to our Philip Hoodenpyl that came from Netherlands and went to the United States. They belong to another lineage of Hodenpijls ; whom I do believe connect to our Hoodenpyls, but no document has been found to prove it. --- pbt
