Claes Martenzen van Rosenvelt arrived in New Netherlands, now New York, in 1649 or1650, undoubtedly bringing with him his wife, Jannetje Samuel-Thomas. (In the Dutch surnames, "van" means "from", and the next word is the name of the place, therefore "Rosenvelt" indicated a certain village in Zeeland, Holland, from whence they came. "Claes" is Dutch for "Nicholas". The middle name, written on records, "Martenzen", signified that his father's given name was Marten. The spelling of the surname was soon changed to Roosevelt and the "van" omitted. Roosevelt or Rosenvelt means "filed of roses".
