Anthony also married a woman of the immigrant family Grevenraet that had been in New Amsterdam for a few years > Metje Andries Grevenraet sometime after 1669. They had no children.

Anthony died March of 1676 in New Amsterdam (New York).

"Anthony Jansen van Salee is a Turk, a rascal and a horned beast." -- Hendrick Jansen voicing the common view of his neighbor's character in 1638.

"New Amsterdam was a litigious place, and Anthony was involved in more than his share of lawsuits. Within five years, Anthony was hauled into court for stealing wood, paying wages he owed with a dead goat, allowing his dog to kill a neighbor's hog, pointing a loaded pistol at the overseer of the West India Company's slaves, threatening a debt collector with bloodshed if he insisted on the money owed and slandering any number of people."

"Following numerous legal disputes, including with the church, Anthony was ordered to leave New Netherland, but on appeal to the Dutch West India Company, was allowed to settle on 200 acres (0.81 km2) in what would become New Utrecht and Gravesend, Brooklyn. This made him now one of the largest and most prominent landholders on Long Island. He was the neighbor of Lady Deborah Moody, of whom he was on good terms with, although he had disputes with her husband Sir Henry who filed speech charges against him."

-Anthony "The Turk" Jansen van Salee (as recorded by Diane Foust Hubbard)-

Most famous were the notorious Abraham Jansz and Anthony Jansen van Salee, a mulatto giant of prodigious strength later nicknamed "the Terrible Turk."

Both followed their father’s double life as a pirate and adventurer, and both later chose to join the early settlers of New Amsterdam (later the city of New York) in the New World.

According to a "historian of the African diaspora" named Mario de Valdes y Cocom, Anthony Jansen van Salee's rumored famous descendants include Cornelius Vanderbilt, Jackie Kennedy (whose swarthy father was known as "Black Jack Bouvier"), and Humphrey Bogart.

For anyone interested in the location of Anthony Jansen's Brugh Straet house - the "footprint" of the original lot still exists, though the lot is a small parking lot now. It is on Bridge Street, just west of Broadway if memory serves me, adjacent to the White Horse Tavern (which incidentally was open in the mid-1600s though at a different location). (as recorded by Brian Smith)

Anthony Janszoon van Salee was a prominent early Dutch settler in the English settlement under Dutch rule in Gravesend, Brooklyn, Kings, western Long Island, after 1645. Gravesend is now a neighborhood in south-central Brooklyn, along the shore of Gravesend Bay and Coney Island. In 1609 Henry Hudson landed his ship the Half Moon there at the island known by the natives as Narrioch (Coney Island). In 1643 Gravesend then became one of the original towns founded in the Dutch colony of New Netherland when Governor Willem Kieft granted a land patent to the Anabaptist Lady Deborah Moody, as a site where that English sect could settle free from religious persecution. Clashes with the natives delayed the town for two more years, until December 19, 1645

Anthony Janszoon van Salee (1607–1676) was the son of famed Dutch pirate Jan Janszoon van Haarlem. Anthony was an original settler of and prominent landholder, merchant, and creditor in New Netherland, and may have been the first Muslim in the New World.

From The History of the Van Sickle Family in the United States of America by John Waddell Van Sickle:

Antony Jansen is supposed to have come from Fez or Salee in Africa, and was probably a son of Jan Janse, of Haerlem in Holland, "a freebooter and pirate, who settled in Salee in MOrocco, where he married, turned Turk or Mohammedan, deserting his lawful wife and children, whom he had left at Haerlem." Was a pirate with his father. Emigrated to New Amsterdam. Gave Ferdinandus his deed to a plantation in 1661

Name: Anthony Van Salee formerly Jansen

Born in Amsterdam

Marriage

In 1624, Anthony was in Salé, Morocco with his father, leaving in 1627 for Algiers with his family. Van Salee was living near the harbor in Amsterdam when he obtained a marriage license on December 15, 1629 to marry 27-year old German-native Grietse Reyniers two days before his ship to the New World left. Husband of Grietje Reyniers — married 1629 in on board ship

Immigration

In 1630, at the age of 22, he immigrated to New Netherland, along with his bride, as a colonist of the Dutch West India Company.

Children

He had four daughters with Reyniers who married into respectable colonial commercial families: 1. Eva Antonis, who married Ferdinandus van Sycklin, an original immigrant to New Netherlands for whom Van Siclen Avenue in Brooklyn is named for. He was a descendant of a crusader and banker named Simon van der Sicklen, whose family possessed the domain of Nazareth, Belgium during the medieval ages and founded the town of Seclin, now in France. The family's original surname was de la Faucille. 2. Cornelia, who married William Johnson 3. Annica, who married Thomas Southard. Annica and Thomas's daughter Abigail was the great-great-grandmother of Cornelius Vanderbilt 4. Sara, who married John Emans. They are fifth great-grandparents of Warren G. Harding.

2nd Marriage

Grietse died in 1669, and Anthony married Metje Grevenraet, before dying in 1676 after passing his final years at his home on Bridge Street. Some say that Metje was a Quaker who helped Anthony tolerate the church, but it is doubtful that Metje was a Quaker have come from quite a different Dutch background.


Biography Anthony Janszoon van Salee was a prominent early Dutch settler in the English settlement under Dutch rule in Gravesend, Brooklyn, Kings, western Long Island, after 1645. Gravesend is now a neighborhood in south-central Brooklyn, along the shore of Gravesend Bay and Coney Island.

In 1643 Gravesend then became one of the original towns founded in the Dutch colony of New Netherland when Governor Willem Kieft granted a land patent to the Anabaptist Lady Deborah Moody, as a site where that English sect could settle free from religious persecution. Clashes with the natives delayed the town for two more years, until December 19, 1645. Anthony Janszoon van Salee (1607–1676) was the son of famed Dutch pirate Jan Janszoon van Haarlem. Anthony was an original settler of and prominent landholder, merchant, and creditor in New Netherland, and may have been the first Muslim in the New World. "Antony Jansen is supposed to have come from Fez or Salee in Africa, and was probably a son of Jan Janse, of Haerlem in Holland , a freebooter and pirate, who settled in Salee in Morocco, where he married, turned Turk or Mohammedan, deserting his lawful wife and children, whom he had left at Haerlem"[1][2] Anthony came to New Amsterdam and bought land about 1630, on what now is lower Manhatten of New York City, New York. Perhaps due to an ego brought on by his background, or a natural aversion to friendship, he was widely known as a very disagreeable fellow. He was considered a prosperous farmer but as a result of his hostile disposition was eventually banned from New Amsterdam. He eventually moved to Gravesend, Long Island but continued to deal in New Amsterdam real estate for the rest of his life. Antony Jansen Van Salee was the son of a Dutch buccaneer, Jan Jansen (born in Amsterdam in the late 1500's) and a Moroccan mother. Antony was born in the port of Fezbut lived in Sale before he immigrated to New Amsterdam in 1630. This tall, dark, and muscular rogue, who was wild and forceful, was known as "The Turk" or as the "Troublesome Turk" in some historical documents. He married Dec.15, 1629, Grietje Reiners (Reyniers)(Egberts?) a bar maid from Amsterdam who arrived in New Amsterdam in 1633 on the 'Southberg'. History paints them as an extremely colorful couple with questionable reputations. They were involved in ma ny petty slander suits. However, their four daughters were quite respectab le and married into prominent families. Anthony was the son an admiral in the fleet of the Sultan of Morocco and since the Dutch built ships for the Sultan, the Dutch Court of New Amsterdam went out of the way to defer to the Admiral's son until both he and his wife became intolerabley arrogant and insulting to both the Court and his neighbors. "A Hollander; from Salee, a seaport in Africa to new Amsterdam patentee and pioneer, Gravesend and New Utrecht; his home called "Turks Plantation" Anthony had secured a bouwery (farm) near Fort Amsterdam by 1638 he had been in New Amsterdam between one and four years. The farm was called Wallenstein and occupied the area from Broadway to the East River between Ann Street and Maiden Lane. He sold this farm to Barent Dircksen on May 7, 1639. In August of 1639 Governor Kieft had "given and granted to Anthony jansen of Salee 100 morgens (200 acres) of land lying on the bay of the North river upon Long Island opposite Coney Island, stretching along the shore... " This property was between what would become Gravesend and New Utrecht, NY. On May 24, 1643 he bought additional a lot and house in New Amsterdam, it was described as the third lot facing the East River on the westerly side of the present Bridge Street. In February 1660 he sold his Gravesend plantation as a result of an Indian uprising, to Nicholas Stilwell in a deal he would soon regret. On February 9, 1662 he petitioned the courts to be released from the sale on the ground that it was sold to cheap. He was not to win the case but the property continued to be referred to as the Turk's Plantation for years to come. :Anthony had received property from Stilwell as part of the original deal and also acquired more land on the western part of Coney Island. He continued to live on this property till about 1669 when upon the death of his first wife and second marriage he moved back to New Amsterdam and moved into the property on Bridge Street, which he had owned there for years and remained in residence there till his death in 1676. At this time he conveyed to his son-in-law, Ferdinandus Janse van Sicklen the property on Long Island. Anthony converted his Bridge Street house into an Inn which he and his second wife operated in their elderly years. Although his real estate was no longer extensive Anthony was listed among the wealthy men to be assessed in the 1674 tax list of New Amsterdam. In his later years Anthony was at times "summoned because of his being an aged and worthy man esteemed for his knowledge of the old boundaries of land on Long Island. " Anthony was described as a "man of prodigious strength" and as "a man of great vigor.": [3] Name Anthony Janszen "the Turk" Van Salee Anthony Van Salee formerly Jansen[4] [5][6][7][8][9][10] Anthony Jansen Vansalee[11] Birth 1607 in Salee or Fez in Morocco or in Cartagena, Spain or Van Felt, Netherlands Abt 1610 Amsterdam | Holland Anthony was born in 1607.

The records of the Gemeente-Archief in Amsterdam show that on 26 September 1626 Grietje Reyniers of Amsterdam, aged twenty-four years, parents unnamed, assisted by her cousin, Heyltge Gerrits Schaeck,married Aelbert Egberts, from Haarlem, a tailor, aged twenty years, having no father, and assisted by his mother, Hillegond Cornelis.
