Hendrick Mandeville left a will on 4 August 1709 at Pacquenac (now Mountain View), Passaic County, New Jersey.

He is called Hendrick, or Henrick. His middle names include Jilliszen, Gillis, or Gillise. His last name is listed as Mandeville, Mandeviel, Mandeval, Mandefell, de Mandeville, or Mandevel.

BIRTH-QUESTION: ahkw; Hendrick was the eldest son of the original immigrant Yellis (w) at the time of his father's will in 1701. There might have been an older brother who either died or stayed in the Netherlands because in Dutch naming conventions, the 2nd son is named for the maternal grandfather; Since Hendrick's mother's name was HENDRICKS, it seems likely that this was her father's name, and so Hendrick was the 2nd son. He was either born in or near Garderen in 1646/7 (a), 1649/50 (hkw), or 1653 [1] He was probably born the youngest date, especially since his 1st marriage was 1680. His sister Trintgen was listed as the 3rd child, and by Dutch naming conventions, she would have been the 2nd daughter. If there were to have been an older brother, he may have been at least the 4th child.

IMMIGRATION-CONFLICT: hkmw; Sailed on "de Trouw" from Netherlands with his parents, some sources state that this was when he was 9 yrs. old, arriving on Feb. 12, 1659 [2] , but might have been one of the younger of the immigrant children. [3] Media Reseach Bureau cites arrival in 1647, but this seems in error. [4]

He married first Annetje Scholl. Marriage banns to Annetje School published in New Amsterdam 6 June, 1680; "Hendrick Jilliszen de Mandeviel, j. m. (bachelor), Uy(")t Gelderl. & Annetje Pieterse Scholl, j. d. (maiden), woonende d Eerste op Noortwyck, & twede op Hempstede, ingeshreven v. Iuni. 1680, getrouwt den 18 Iul. op N. Amersfoort." [5] They were married 18 July 1680. [6] [7] [8]

LAND: Hendrick lived in New Nordwyck, Greenwich and Flatbush (Hempstead), Long Island, NY with his parents. He married there and inherited the farm there (Hempstead, Heemstede). March 18, 1684, he bought 50 acres from Adam Mott, Jr. in the south woods at Hempstead, Long Island. [9] June 14, 1684, Peter Johnson Scoll gave 50 adjoining acres to "his beloved son-in-law, Hendrick Mandefell". [10]

LAND: j; He purchased 3,500 acres at Pompton Plains (Morris Co., New Jersey) & Pacquenac (now called Mt. View); "May 11, 1659, having purchased Indian title to the same, Major Anthony Grockholst and Capt. Arent Schuyler in behalf of themselves and associates, including Samuel Bayard, George Ryerson, John Mead (Jan Meet), Samuel Berrie, David and Hendrick de Mandeville, obtained a patent for 5500 acres at Pacquenac, or Pompton Plains, NJ from the East Jersey proprietors" [11]

Hendrick was about 49 yr old when he joined in the purchase of the Pequannock and Pompton Patents; He and his wife Elizabeth Janse Berry (sister to Samuel Berry) settled in 1699 on the east side of the old Indian path just opposite Jan Mead. [12] Their lands can be seen on the 1707 Survey map as lot numbers 9 & 12. [13]

He married second Elizabeth Jans Berry or Herris. [14] [15] [16] [17]

He may have moved from Pompton Plains about 1700/1701, but in 1703, Hendrick Gillise, perhaps Mandeville, was living in New York. In Pompton Plains he lived in the stone house on the east side of the road, opposite the brick yard. [18] Paid wampum & other goods and merchandise to the value of 240 pounds. (j)

WILL: His will was written 2 August 1709, and proved 8 December 1732. He mentions sons David, by a first wife, Hendrick, Johannis & Giles. He was ill at time of writing. [19]

DEATH-CONFLICT: aghkw; Death dates are in conflict, but 1712 is most prevalent, perhaps 8 December 1712. [20]

"Today the beautiful old Giles Mandeville house built by a descendant is used as parsonage for the Pompton Plains Reformed Church and stands as a fitting monument to this early settler."
