Eva Antonis, who married Ferdinandus van Sycklin, an original immigrant to New Netherlands for whom Van Siclen Avenue in Brooklyn is named for.[18] He was a (suspected) 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.[1][19][20]

From information by Christine Ghesquire:

The first member of this family to come to America from the Netherlands was Ferdinandus VanSickelen; born 1635, came to New Amsterdam (New York) at 17, then after a year or more settled at Flatlands, Long Island. The homestead was still around in 1901 near the VanSicklen Station on the Brooklyn elevated railway.

According to E. Hamm in his book entitled "Early Families of New York", Ferdinandus, after settling in Flatlands, Long Island soon had a large farm and was doing a profitable business with the people of Brooklyn and New Amsterdam. He married Eva Antonise Jansen by whom he had three sons and five daughters. These children were strong and sturdy and must have been of invaluable service to their parents. In the Dutch families at that time the boys aided the father upon the land and with the livestock, while the girls helped the mother in the care of the house, the management of the poultry-yard and dairy, and in spinning, weaving and dyeing.

The father of Eva, wife of Ferdinandus, was Antony Jansen, known as Antony Jansen van Salee and sometimes as Antony Jansen van Fez, from his having lived for sometime in Morocco at the cities of Salee and Fez. He was said to be a freebooter and pirate and settled in Morocco where he became a Turk and turned to the Mohammeden religion. He was said to have come from Salee or Fez, Africa, to New Amsterdam, N.Y. about 1633 where he lived until 1639 at which time he and his wife Grietje Reiniers were banished from there in consequence of their being slanderous and troublesome persons. In 1634 he was granted land where Bensonhurst, Long Island now stands. He sold this in 1660 and moved to New Amsterdam where he died in 1676. He was called "The Turk" and his property was referred to as "The Turk's Plantation". He made his mark "A1" to documents.

It was his daughter Eva Antonis Jansen who married Ferdinandus VanSickelen, the original VanSickelen immigrant from Europe. From Ferdinandus (1635) and his wife Eva are descended all the VanSickelens in America.
