About Magdalena Dirkse Dircks

  • Born on the Vigne Bouwerie farm, a little north of Wall St. (Brooklyn, King Co., N.Y.).

[This is "fact" is self-conflicting, Vigne Bouwerie is north of Wall St. which is in Manhattan NOT Brooklyn - Alex Moes]

  • Nicknamed 'The Flying Angel' because of the trouble she got into & the tavern that she & her husband owned.
  • Name aka 'Maddeleen Dircks'.

Harmon arrived in New Amsterdam sometime during the mid-1600's and married the widow Magdalena Dircks Van Dort there in early 1657.

On their wedding day, Magdalena (who was possibly slightly inebriated) made fun of an innkeeper who also happened to be a political appointee (the fire warden). The innkeeper took offense, brought charges against the pair, and had them deported to Holland. Harmon received a discharge from his military obligations by a special act of the Council, and was sent back to Holland with his new wife.

Fortunately for the many thousands of us living here today, Harmon and Magdalena were allowed to return to New Amsterdam in June of 1658. They were not permitted to remain in New Amsterdam. They settled in Mombaccus, near Kingston, NY, and took up farming. Today, Mombaccus is known as Rochester Township
