  • "The earliest known Aten is Hendrick, born in Holland about 1590. His son Adriaen, the father of Annetje, came to America in 1651."
  • Annetje Aten, wife of Thomas Skillman and mother of his children, was a communicant member of Newtown (Ref. Dutch) Church, 1741. Her parents, March 20, 1696, made a joint will, dividing their estate at death equally among their children, except that that Maritje (bap. at Flatbush Dutch Church, March 31, 1678) was given a double portion, she remaining unmarried and having chief care of the father and mother, perhaps. The will of Thomas2 Skillman (Records of Kings County and Queens), dated Feb.13[note 1], 1739, witnessed by Barnadus Van Zandt, John Rapalje, and Cornelis Berrien, Jr., probated July 4, 1740, names his wife, Ann, and all their then living children. Two had died young.

    • The loss of the early Flatbush records is undoubtedly the reason why we cannot find dates of baptisms of any of the children of Adriaen by his first marriage, but we know them to have been (order, however, not certain): ...
