ANNALS OF THE VREELAND FAMILY Compiled and Arranged By LOUIS BEACH VREELAND Hartman Michielsen Vreeland (32). The record of his baptism in the church at New Amsterdam: October 1, 1651. Michiel Janszen, Fytje Hartmans, child, Hartman. Witnesses Thomas Hall, Lysbeth Thyssen. His wife was Maritje, daughter of Dirck Claase Braecke, whom he married 1672. (Bergen record). They lived at Rechpokus on part of his wife's inheritance from her father. Her mother's maiden name was Echtje Jacobs. April 4, 1678 he purchased from Captahem Peeters, the Indian Sachem, "a great Island lyeing in the River Pisaick near by Aquickanunk by the Indians called Menehenicke." The English called it Hartman's Island. He obtained a patent from the East Jersey Prop r i e t o r s for t h i s island, January 6, 1685, in consideration of the yearly payment of "the chief or quit rent of one f a t t henn" , forever if demanded. This island contained about nine acres. February 16, 1679-80 he purchased from Christoffel Hoogland two t r a c t s of land adjoining the island at "Haquickuenock" containing 150 and 128 acres. This l a s t purchase was known as " S t o f f e l ' s Point." I t was a long time after that he received a deed for t h i s purchase. April 23, 1696, deed from Dirk Hogeland of New York City, mariner, son and heir of Christopher Hogland of the same place, merchant, d e c ' d . , and his mother, Catharina Hoogland, to Hartman Macheelson, of Qumunepa, farmer, confirming conveyance by his father of February 16, 1679-80, under patent of July 15, 1678. (Liber F, page 585, N. J. Archives vol.21, First Series). Hartman shared t h i s t r a c t with three of his brothers as we see from the following deeds: April 26, 1698, Hartman Macheelsie of Bergen t o Elias Macheelsie of Achquickenunck, Essex County, for one-fourth of the land conveyed to him by Christopher Hoogland, etc, Liber F, page 588. •21= April 28, 1698, Hartman Macheelsie of Bergen to Cornelius Macheelsie of the same place, for one-fourth of the t r a c t bought of Christopher Hoogland. Liber F . , page 602. April 28, 1698„ Hartman Macheelsie to Johannes Macheelsie for one=fourth of the same t r a c t. The Legislature in 1692 appointed him one of the commissioners to receive taxes in Bergen. In 1700 he was one of the signers of the p e t i t i o n to the king for redress against the East Jersey Proprietors. 1693 Writ of election for a General Assembly, with return of Captain William Lawrence for Hackensack, Hartman Michielsen and Edward Earle, Junior, for Bergen; by John Edsal, Sheri f f . Liber C. page 160, reversed page 213, N„J.Archives, vol. 21. September 1, 1696, a deed of p a r t i t i o n , Hartman Macheilse, Johannes Macheilse, Cornelius Macheilse, dividing the real estate of Derick Claes Braecke, deceased, with the consent of Maritie Derickse Braeke, Metie Derickse Braeke and Claese Derickse Braeke, daughters of said Derick Claes. Hartman took a home lot at "Comunipan, next to F i t i e Hartmans, a lot adjoining I t , a third home lot next to Johannes Micheilse, the island of Reckpokus and a parcel called the Bush land. I do not think Hartman ever resided at Acquackanonk. If he did, he made i t his home for only a few years. He i s always described as of Gemoenepa or Bergen and represented Bergen in the General Assembly in 1693. His l a s t years were certainly spent at Gemoenepa. He died January 18, 1707 and was buried at Bergen, the one hundred and eighteenth person to be buried with the p a l l . It was a curious custom of the old church that the pall belonged to the congregation. Those who could afford i t were buried with the pall thrown over the coffin, and in the record of burials kept by the o f f i c i a l s of the church careful note i s made of the use of the pall at a funeral. He was a member of the Bergen Church October 2, 1682, Hartman died i n t e s t a t e and his family apparently waited unt i l a l l the children were of full age before a division of the property was made. Maritje, his widow, sold to her youngest son, Michiel Hartmanse Vreeland, July 13, 1723 the same t r a c t , called Reckpokus, where she lived. It had been a part of her f a t h e r 's land. The sale price was £ 450, (Winfield = Land T i t l e s ), June 16, 1724, inventory of the estate of Hartman Michaelson Vreeland of Bergen County (£ 103;12;6) made by his eldest son, Claes Hartmanson Vreeland with the consent of his younger brothers •22= and s i s t e r s and appraised by John Sip and Wander Diedericks, July 30, 1724, administration granted to Claes and Derrick Vreeland of said county, July 30, 1724 bond of Claes and Derrick Vreeland both of Bergen County as administrators, (N.J.Archives vol, 23, page 484), And, most interesting in t h i s connection, is an unrecorded deed dated August 22, 1724 by Claes Vreeland and Dirk Vreeland of ACQUACKANONK, and Michiel Vreeland, of GEMOENEPA, to Enoch Vreeland, of ACQUACKANONK, conveying to Enoch the island granted to Hartman Michielsen by patent of January 6, 1685 and the land conveyed to him by Hoogland, except such portions as Hartman had disposed of. (Nelson- Hist, of Paterson). Through t h i s we learn the disposition of Hartman's land. His eldest sons, Claes and Dirk settled in Acquackanonk on his portion of the Acquackanonk Patent. His third son, Enoch, received the land described in t h i s deed, that i s the remainder of the land which Hartman had purchased at Acquackanonk independent of the Patent, while the youngest son, Michiel, remained at Gemoenepa, In a l l probability the sons had lived for years on the parcels which they took in severalty at t h i s time, as our people, and I presume the Dutch families in general, when their sons grew to manhood settled them on some portion of the family holdings, and in many cases the children did not receive t i t l e to those acres until many years l a t e r . There are very many instances of division of r e a l t y by a f a t h e r ' s will which confirmed arrangements made and carried into effect long years before the parent's death.
