HENDRICK HOPPE(N), son of Andries Willemszen Hoppe(n)(#1) and Geertje Hendricks, was b. in New Amsterdam, and bap. there on 9 Jan 1656, at NY RDCh. He moved across the Hudson River to the settlement at Bergen (now Jersey City, NJ), with his mother, step-father, and family when he was about six. He lived there until after his marriage as his first child was b. in Bergen, and bap. there in Dec 1680. Soon after, they moved to the new settlement at Hackensack where their next seven children were born. On 22 Sep 1694, "Hendrick Hoppe" joined the Hack.RDCh.(p.2). The family lived in the south-west section of what is now Hackensack/Hasbrouck Heights, then know as "Polifly." By deed dated 17 [May?] 1694, "John Berry of Bergen Co" conveyed to "Hendrick Hoppen of Essex Co., NJ" for £40, "...a certain parcel of Land lying between the Hackensack River and the Saddle River now in the possession and occupation of him, the said Hendrick Hoppen, containing in Breadth nine chains and six Links, running that breadth through a great swamp on a west-north-west course until it comes to the fresh meadow lying on the northwest side of the said swamp and from thence on a north-west course unto Saddle River. Breadth aforesaid one hundred forty four chains twenty lynks (sic) containing one hundred ninety acres English measure more or less" ... Also and another tract adjoining of 100 acres and a third of 320 acres of meadow . By this same indenture Hendrick bound himself and his heirs to pay also "a yearly quit rent of twenty two shillings" and in testimony thereof he signed his mark (Brg.Co. Deed A-89). Some of the deed in the microfilmed copy at Brg. Co.Courthouse is no longer readable, but was abstracted earlier by Nelson (p.344). This deed was referred to in a later deed, da. 18 Mar 1726, Hendrick Hoppen of New Barbadoes, Brg.Co. NJ, sold to Garret Hoppen of same [his son], for £150, land which Hendrick Hoppen had purchased "from Maj. John Berry 17 May 1694," bounded by the land of Hendrick vander Linde, the Saddle River, the line of Abram Ackerman and the line of Hendrick Brass.(Hendrick Hoppe(n) signed with his mark)(Brg. Co. Deed B-19). This property was to be owned by his descendants for many generations. The will of "Hendrick Hoppe of Bergen County in New Barbadoes, Freck(lin) County of Bergen in the Eastern Division of the Province of (New Jersey) yeoman, being of good health".was da. 26 Sep 1737 and was unrecorded (see next page for entire will). He mentioned: children of my eldest son Andries Hopp deceased, unto John hopp, unto my doughter Trintie van allen, unto my doughter Leah Zabowisko, unto my doughter Geertie Zabowriji and unto the children of my doughter Rachel Deceased, Six children or their heirs to divided equally £150 lawful money of this province - that is each "five and twenty pounds" to be paid by Longest [youngest] son Gerrit Hopp (the money is the payment of my Plantation in the Pollvley he bought of me in full); To grandson Hendrick Hoppe, the eldest son of my eldist son Andries Hopp Deceased the Sum of three shillings ... as his Provagatiif [prerogative] of his fatherss Birth Right. .. .All the remaining of the estate to be divided equally among my seven children or their heirs. Unto mij two Doughters Leah and geertie Zabouriski - ... my doughter Leah one silver cup and unto my Doughter geertie I do give one fleson(?) [apparently hard to read in the original or unknown] kelder called in Duch, to be their own without arguement. Signed with his mark. With banns on 14 Mar 1680, at Brg.RDCh.(mar.#42), "Hendrick Hoppe, y.m. (from New York) and Maria Jans, y.d. (from Bergen) were m. by the preacher at Bergen." Marritje Janse Van Blarcom, dau. of Jan Lubbertszen (Van Blarkum) also known as Jans Captain and Magdaleentje Jans Theunis. She was b. in Bergen and bap.as "Marritie" on 30 Dec 1661, at the NY RDCh.(p.63). "Mary Janse," along with Geertie Hoppe, Willem Hoppe and Hendiktie Arents were among those on a list of the thirty-three original members of the Hackensack RDCh. in 1686 (p.1). Her surname is given in church records most often as the patronymic Jans, Janse, or Jansen, but also as Van Blerkum and Van Blerckum. In 1712, when she wit. the bap. of Gerrit Dirckse Van Dien's child Willem she was "Marie Van Blerckum, wife of Hendrick Hoppe" (Hack.RDCh. p.101). The last record of her was on 27 Dec 1724, when "Hendrick Hoppe and Maeytje Hoppe" witnessed the bap. of their gr.son at Hack.RDCh.(p.143), she apparently d. before the 26 Sep 1737 will of her husb.
