Capt. James Bollen Ann Vauquellin 1664 Monmouth New Jersey


According to the Mormon church records, her name may be spelled VAUEGUELLIN and from France. Married to James in 1858?


Evidence that this is the wife of James Bollen is weak, but this is widely included in web genealogy.

From http://www.users.interport.net/k/a/kadekds/Richard1w.html :

March, 1664 - King Charles II grants land to his brother James, Duke of York. The territory included all of the land from the west side of the Connecticut River south to the east side of the Delaware River, and also included Maine, islands off of the coast of New England, and Long Island.

April, 1664 - The Duke of York commissions Col. Richard Nicolls to take possession of the land and to serve as Deputy-Governor. Dutch authorities at the town of New Amsterdam (New York) surrendered to Col. Nicolls and his fleet of four ships. Nicolls took up his post as Governor of the Duke's lands at that site.

June, 1664 - The Duke of York grants a portion of his land that Nicolls is governing to his long-time friends and supporters - Sir George Carteret, from the Isle of Jersey, and Lord John Berkeley. The Duke names the province New Jersey.

February, 1665 - Sir George Carteret and Lord John Berleley sign "The Concessions", a constitution they wrote for the province of New Jersey. On that same day, they commission Carteret's distant cousin, Philip Carteret, to govern their province, and Robert Vanquellin, of the city of Caen, France, to be New Jersey's Surveyor-General.

April, 1665 - Philip Carteret sets sail for America from England in his ship, 'Philip" with about thirty passengers. There is no surviving passenger list. However, it is known that the passengers included Robert Vanquellin and his wife as well as James Bollin, Secretary of the Province of New Jersey. A later gift of land to those servants 'who came over with Carteret' identifies eighteen male indentured servants who would also have been on-board, including Richard Skinner. Some were of French extraction and probably from the Isle of Jersey, Sir George Carteret's home. Philip Carteret had been on the Isle of Jersey with Robert Vanquellin at about the time of their commission. They arrived in England in January, 1665 and proceeded on to East Jersey. Three French women who appear early in New Jersey records, probably servants like their male counterparts, were likely also on-board, including Susannah Poulain. Susannah's only mention in New Jersey records is her marriage to Richard Skinner.

June, 1665 - Philip arrives in Virginia where he spends many weeks. In a letter he sent from Virginia to Governor Winthrop in New England, Philip makes mention of a plan to ship equipment to make salt to New Jersey, with the profits to be shared by Philip, Sir George, and an English merchant. In return for assistance in getting the salt works underway, Philip offered the governor a share of the profits. The English merchant, Samuel Hutchinson, also wrote to Governor Winthrop concerning the salt works plan and the need for Philip to have some assistance, and said - "Capt Cartret hath brought over sondry ffrench men that know the making of salt in ffrance." Thus, the early intentions of the two Carteret's and the make-up of the indentured servants may have revolved around a plan to make salt.

Although nothing more is known of the salt works plan, Governor Winthrop's reply to Philip provides a hint that the idea was probably not worthwhile - "Salt is brought in by ships for ballast, &c ___ from Turtugas."

Per an internet source that I did not record, the ship 'Philip' actually grounded in the Chesepeake Bay while there.

July 29, 1665 - Per Governor Nicolls, Philip Carteret arrived at New York on that day. A prime topic of conversation would have been that Governor Nicolls had not been aware that his superior, the Duke of York, had sold the New Jersey lands to Berkeley and Carteret. Not realizing that fact, Nicolls had approved the sale of two large tracts of land in New Jersey to two groups of Long Islanders.

probably early August, 1665 - Philip Carteret arrives as New Jersey's first governor. It is likely that he headed straight for those Long Islanders that had begun to populate their land purchase - they would have represented the only English presence in New Jersey at the time. Philip's exact arrival date is unknown, but on September 8, he purchased the shares of one of the Long Island principals. In so doing, he legitimized their land purchase, though theoretically, all of New Jersey should have belonged to Philip's superiors - Berkeley and Carteret. Philip retained the right to govern and to settle the lands within the framework of the constitution ("The Concessions") handed to him by Berkeley and Carteret. Philip eventually named the first settlement Elizabethtown, in honor of the wife of Sir George Carteret, and it is from there that he governed.

The Long Islanders had desired to quickly populate their land purchase. This was in line with the goals of Berkeley and Carteret, whose liberal constitution was designed for a rapid population of the land, both for their own gain and to solidify the English presence in the Americas. Their efforts were successful, for the eastern portion of New Jersey, beginning with the lands owned by the Long Islanders, was very quickly populated by emigrants from settlements throughout New England and representing many different religious persuasions.

from http://genforum.genealogy.com/ackman/messages/11.html :

18. James BOLLEN was born 25 Jun 1643 in England, and died 27 Mar 1682 in NJ.

19. Anne VAUQUILEN was born ABT 1645, and died ABT 1683 in NJ.

Child of Anne VAUQUILEN and James BOLLEN is:

9. i. Hannah Anna BOLLEN was born ABT 1664 in Woodbridge, Middlesex, Co, NJ, and died 1749 in Hopewell, Hunterdon Co, NJ. She married Jonathan STOUT Capt 27 Aug 1685 in Middletown, Monmouth, Co, NJ, son of Richard STOUT and Penelope Mrs VAN PRINCESS KENT. He was born 1650 in Gravesend, Long Island, King, NY, and died 24 Nov 1722 in Hopewell, Hunterdon, Co, NJ.

GEDCOM Note

Uncertain Family {{Collateral Huguenot |name=Anne Vanquellin|addinfo=
In April, 1665 Anne's father Robert set sail for America from England in Philip Carteret's ship, 'Philip," with about thirty passengers. There is no surviving passenger list. However, it is known that the passengers included Robert Vanquellin. Robert then settled in northeastern New Jersey, under British rule (since Sept. 1664) ofthis part of New Netherland as it was in dispute for the next decade until full Dutch capitulation in 1674. It is thought that Anne came with her husband on that same ship. }}

Biography

The wife of Capt. James Bollen has been reported as Anne Vauquellin, said to have been a daughter of Robert and Jeanne Vauquellin. Robert Vauquellin has been reported to have been of Caen, Lower Normandy, France. This supposed marriage of Capt. James Bollen and Anne Vauquellin originated with Orra Eugene Monnette who said on p. 794 of his "First Settlers of Piscatatway and Woodbridge":
There is evidence that the wife, Anne of James Bollen, was the daughter of Robert Vanquellen [sic] of Woodbridge; to whose will in 1673, James Bollen appeared as a witness."
He produced no evidence. This statement shows that James Bollen was awitness to Vauquellin's will, nothing more. Being a witness to somebody's will does not necessarily imply that the witness was related to the testator. Probably because this was in print, it was repeated by others, and thus began the spreading of Monnette's so-called evidence.Monnette's spelling -"Vanquellen"- is incorrect and would indicate that he was Dutch. He was French and his name has received twenty-two variations, of which "la Prairie" was the most common. some others were Laprairie, Leperary, Sieur des Prairies, de la Prairies, Laprairy, Laparary, Le prerie, La Prei, Delaprary, Delepray, Deleprierre, delapairs, Delapierre, Vauquelin, Vauquellin, Vauguellin, Van Quellin, Van quillen, Voclin, Voclan, Vorklan. (Rev. Edwin F. Hatfield, History of Elizabeth, New Jersey, p. 97)
Joe Klett, archivist and former editor of Newsletter of GSNJ wrote: "Monnette's work is so terribly flawed that genealogists past and present rue the day he was ever published."
In an article by Dr. Neil D. Thompson in The genealogist, Vol. 1., No.1, Spring 1980, p. 228: Thompson says:.....The debunking of the original source for the marriage of James Bollen to Anne Vauquellin should be enough to disprove it, but there is further evidence to show that this marriage never existed."
