  • Joseph and Resolved Waldron, sons of Resolved Waldron, of Amsterdam, were book printers. The family was English; the name, of repute in England from the time of the Conqueror, had spread through nearly all its southern tier of counties. But born and raised at Amsterdam, these brothers had acquired all the characteristics of Hollanders, having also married Dutch wives, the sisters Aeltie and Rebecca Hendricks, whose father, Hendrick Koch, was a respectable Amsterdam burgher. It is stated on pretty good authority that Resolved had made the voyage to Brazil, but of this we will not speak further here. Having the misfortune to lose his wife, he married again, on May 10th, 1654, a lady of thirty years, living near the West India House, Tanneke Nagel, daughter of Barent Nagel, deceased, of Groningen. Resolved was living at this time in the Teerketels-steeg, a short street just north of, the Dam; but the same year sailed with his family for America. His brother, Joseph Waldron, had preceded him to this country by two years, according to his son's reckoning. He also was accompanied by a second wife, Annetie Daniels, but twenty-five when he married her, at Amsterdam, April 4, 1649, she and Resolved's wife being of the same age.

  • .... The first of whom we have record is Baron Resolved Waldron, son of Count Johannas VonWaldron, who was born in 1610, in Amsterdam, Holland. He was well educated in Latin, French and English. He was an extensive traveler in Europe and South America, spent some time in Brazil and returning to his native land, Holland, in 1645, married Rebecca Hendryx in 1647. She died 165-. He afterward became acquainted with Lady Tanneka Neigle, daughter of Baron Von Neigle, and was married to her May 10, 1654. Resolved Waldron joined the staff of Governor Peter Stuyvesant in May, 1647, and continued to serve the Dutch government during Stuyvesant's administration until James, Duke of York, sent four ships of war during time of peace in 1664 and robbed the Dutch of all their possessions in America.
  • Resolved Waldron acted as ambassador to all the petty English courts in New England, Virginia and Baltimore. He with two others obtained the first grant from Stuyvesant for New Harlem in 1654, of that portion of Manhattan Island lying between 82d and 109th Streets, extending from North River to East River. He established the first ferry and erected the first Dutch church in that town. He also built himself a stone mansion on East River (called by the Dutch "Helengate," or "roaring water"). The Indian name was "Sevandican," or "mad water." The Indian name for the land or bowery was "Rachewanas," or "crooked land." This bowery or plantation was about a mile along the water. Here Waldron lived a number of years until his sons grew up and married and then, while chief magistrate, he removed to Kingsbridge.
