About Cornelius Jansen van Texel

Biography

Among the very early settlers in the New Netherlands region of what was later known of as New York, was the Van Texel family. The head of the family was generally known as Cornelis Jansen, that is, Cornelis son of Jan.

Cornelius Jansen Van Texel, also known as Jan Cornelius Van Texel, was born circa 1600 in Schoonderwoert, near Leerdam, South Holland; according to the listing of "Original Places of Residence in Holland, Belgium, and Germany of the Pioneer New Netherland Settlers." Earlier, his family was probably originally from the Island of Texel (The Texel), S.W. of the Frisian Islands.

The year of his coming cannot be exactly fixed, but his son was born at Fort Amsterdam in 1625, so he couldn't have arrived in this country later than 1624. He must have come over on one of the Dutch vessels that began trading with the Indians after Henry Hudson in 1609 sailed up the river that bears his name.

When Cornelius Jensen Van Texel came to the New Netherlands he went to Long Island, where he resided, so far as known the rest of his life. He was selected to represent the Long Island Indians before Commissioners appointed to settle the wars between the Peqots, Narragansetts and other tribe and was present at meetings of the Commissioners held at Boston and elsewhere.

Around 1624, Wyandance, Sachem of the Montauk an Indian Tribe on Long Island , gave him his daughter, Catoneras, in marriage. She was one of fourteen Indian women taken into captivity by Ninigret, chief of the Narrangansetts,and afterwards ransomed throughthe intervention of Lion Gardiner. Of this marriage, one son was born in 1625 at Fort Amsterdam, Manhattan Island, and named after his father, Jan Cornelius Van Texel.

No record has been found as to the date of decease or place of burial.

Life Sketch

The Van Tassel family, prominent in parts of Long Island during the colonial period, points with pride to a Montauk Indian princess on its family tree. The romantic story is that Cornelius Jensen (jenezan) Van Texel (as the name was originally spelled in new Amsterdan) born in south Holland, in Europe, about 1600, migrated to America as a comparatively young man.

It was while on a fishing expedition to Montauk, before there were any white inhabitants in that part of the island, that Cornelius and companions landed somewhere east of Amagansett. There they met a beautiful Indian maiden named Catoneras whose father, according to the Van Tassel genealogy, was a Montauk Sachem. In the National Archives there is a record that he was the Grand Sachem of all the tribes on Long Island, and that he had two brothers who were lesser sachems. The records give their names and the name of the mother of Catoneras.

It seems that Cornelius managed to obtain the Sachems' consent and took the maiden to New Amsterdam where they were married in the Dutch Reformed Church. One son of this union named Jan married Antje Alberto, a daughter of Pietro Alberto, who was Long Island's first Italian resident and of whom we have written previously.

It was the Dutch/Indian Jan and his Italian Dutch wife who in 1684 sailed up the Hudson and founded the village of Peekskill, thus establishing the Van Tassel family in Westchester County, New York.
