About Jan Pieterszen van Huysen

Jan Pieterszen van Huysen (Staats)

Jan Pieterszen Van Husum (also known as Jan Pieterszen Van Huysen) was born in 1605 and around 1638 emmigrated from Husum in Kreis Nordfriesland, Schleswig, Germany.

Jan (pronounced like the English John) lived and farmed in New Amsterdam until 1642 when he bought farmland in Gowanus(Brooklyn) - which was still part of New Netherland. He, his two sons Pieter Janszen Staats and Jan Janszen Staats and their children contributed to the building and prosperity of New Netherland until the English wrestled it away from the Dutch in 1674.



Jan never actually went by the Staats surname. His two sons, Pieter Janse and Jan Janse, were using the Staats surname by the time they took the King of England's Oath of Allegiance in Kings County in 1687.
