  • Aert, or, Aart Jacobsen., the ancestor of all the families mentioned in the earliest town and church records of Ulster and Dutchess Counties, N Y., under the names of Van Wageninge and Van Wagenen, came from [Van in Dutch meaning "from" or "of"] Wageningen, a town near the Rhine, ten miles west of Arnheim in Guelderland.
  • Later his children, in accordance with the custom of the early Dutch settlers, adopted the name of that town (Wageningen) as a surname. The first appearance of the name after its adoption as a family name is in the baptismal records of the Dutch church at Kingston. which commence in 1660. There it is given as Van Wageninge, from about 1675 to 1700. After this it appears as Van Wagenen and at present. there are a good many variations in the name, as Van Wagner, Van Wagoner, etc., among some branches of the family. Jacob’s brother Benjamin was first in this line to use the surname Van Wagenen.
