About Maria Richard

Conveys "A Certaine Tract or Parcell of Land upon this Island Manhatans lying and being to ye North of ye Great Creeke or Kill Stretching in Length from ye said Creeke alongst ye Ryver comonly called and knowne by ye name of Hudsons or ye North Ryver 800 r. and from ye said Ryver stretching in depth or breadth from ye length aforementioned into ye woods 250 r., conteyning in all by estimation about acres or Margen."

Johannes van Brugh, the wealthiest of the patentees, acquired the southerly 150 acres of the land lying along the Great Kill, undoubtedly the most desirable farm. Jan Vinge got 150 acres, more or less, north of Van Brugh's land.

Maria van Brugh, a daughter of Johannes van Brugh, who owned the 150 acres at the southerly end of the patent, married Stephen Richard, July 23, i6g6. Her son, Paul Richard, was born April 11, 1697. In 1713, the farm was still spoken of as the land of Trintje ver Brugge. (See the R. B. Norton farm.) (in Stokes' Iconography)
