[NOTE.--The maiden name of Helena Cooper was Helena Fell. She married John Le
Montes, September 26, 1686. After his death she married Robert Griggs. After
he died she
married Caleb Cooper. The lot left to her son John, is now No. 78 Pearl
Street, and No.
44 Water Street. This was a water lot granted to Francina Hermans, who sold
it to John
Le Montes in 1687. It was afterwards owned by Governor Cadwallader Colden,
who gave
it to his daughter, who married Peter De Lancey. The lot on Broad Street is
now No. 80,

Vincent; Simon;
Jan Gerdyn, Maria de Vos.

The next child of Adriaen Vincent is
Hester Baptism records for 1645: 16 Jul; Adriaen Vincent; Hester; Isaac de
Hester Simons. (hester Simons was the wife of Pieter Wolfeszen Van
Couvenhoven) She
shows up a few times in the different baptism of the Vincent family. I don’t
know what her
relationship is, but I have a hunch that she may be related to them through
the generation
before Adriaen Vincent (maybe a grandmother on the side of Adriaen’s wife).
Hester married Jan Gerdyn prior to 1666 and they baptized a son, Johannes
Baptism records for 1668, 8 Aug; Jan Gerdyn, Hester Vincent; Johannes; Adriaen
Vincent, Isa_ beth de Potter. and Johannes Gerdyn, Jr., married Dirckje Jans

The next child would be Jan Adriaens Vincent who was bp 1651, 15 Jan; Adriaen

He married 23 May 1673 (banns posted) to Annetje Jans (Staats), daughter of
Pieters and Jan Pieterszen.
Their first child was Charles (The records say Cornelis, but I believe it
should be Charles
for the following reason (Baptism records for 1674,14 May; Johannes Vincent,
Jans; Cornelis; Cornelis Ewoutszen, Gabriel Mouvelle.) There is no Cornelis
Vincent to be
found, but Charles shows up all over the place. He was married to Rachel
Vermelje, who
was the daughter of Johannes Vermelje and Aeltje Waltron. Information from
the Will of
Rachel and her mothers Will

Pieter Janszen, Neeltie Jans.

The last child I have for Adriaen Vincent is
Francis Vincent born between 1640 and 1655, Going by the abstract of his Will
one can
put together a pretty good showing of his family.
First here is the
Abstracts of Wills Vol III 1730-1744, pages 97 & 98:
Page 490.--In the name of God, Amen. I, FRANCIS VINCENT, of New York,
This 11 day of September in the 6 year of George II, "being ancient and sick.
I leave to my
son Samuel, 6 shillings, and debar him from any further claim as eldest son
heir-at-law. To my daughter, Ann Gilbert, all my bed, sheets, pillows, etc.
"Also my
picture which was drawne to represent my person for ever." I leave to my
Francis Manny, the son of James Manny, deceased, my gun, sword, and watch. To
grandson, Stephen Maynard, part of my wearing apparell. All the rest of my
estate is to be
sold and the proceeds divided among my son Samuel, my daughter Ann Gilbert, my
daughter Elizabeth Maynard, my daughter Esther Salter, and my grand-daughter,
Madeline Manny. I make my daughter, Ann Gilbert, and Dr. John Dupuy, and
Leddell, pewterer, executors.

Witnesses, Abraham Jouneau, C. De Peyster, S. Johnson. Proved, April 10, 1733.

First we have daughter Ann, who was married first to James Manny prior to
1707 when
their son Francis, Baptism records for 1707, 6 Apr; James Manney, Anna
Franson; Jeremiah Maney,(James’ brother) Elizabeth Mainerd.(Anna’s sister
Vincent, who was married to Daniel Meynard). Now James Manny had a brother
Manny, who was married to Anna’s sister, Margreta Vincent.
Jeremiah Manny and Margreta Vincent had the following children baptized:
Jeremiah Manny born 1707 Baptism records for 1707, 30 Apr; Jeremiah Maney,
Finsang; Jeremias; Fransoa Finsang, Magdalena Maney.
Anna Magdalena Manny born 1709, Baptism records for 1709, 29 May; Jeremias
Margreta Fincang; Anna Magdalena; Daniel Odee, Anna Fincang wife of Jaemes
Now this Anna Magdalena Manny was mentioned in Francis Vincent Will along
with Anna
‘vincent’s son, Francis. (This Francis married Annetje Kip in 1734)

According to the Will of Francis there was a daughter hester, married to a
Also a son, Samuel and then from the baptism records we find a
John Vincent, Jr, married to Lea De Voe, daughter of Frederick De Voe and
John Vincent, Jr had a daughter, Anna, baptized Baptism records for 1706, 10
Feb; John
Vinsang Jr., Lea de Vow; Anna; Levi Finsang, Johannis Dykman, Anna Finsang
wife of
James Manny.
>From the baptism records you can see that the two families tie in. I don’t
know about the
Levi Vincent, who was married to Lea De Voe’s sister, Hester. But I have a
hunch that he
was not a son of Francis Vincent as he or his daughter, Sussannah Vincent,
who married
Cornelius Spier, son of Fran Spier and Dirckje Cornelise Van Houten. were not
in Francis’ Will. Here is a little note on the Spier family
The Early Spier Family by Janet C. Riemer
Cornelius Spier, son of Fran Spier and Dierckje Cornelise Van Houten, was
born 20
January 171_ and died 25 June 1785 (bible rec., Gardner Coll., RUL). He
Susanna Vincent who was born 3 February 1711, and died 13 December 1797, the
daughter of Levi vincent and Hester De Veaux (Bible rec.). The banns were
announced on
28 February 1735 (Ac) with the marriage on 18 March 1735 (Bible rec.).
Susanna was the
widow of Johannes Van Giesen, whom she had married on 29 April 1731 (Ac)
served in the Revolutionary War as a captain in the 2nd Reg. of the Essex
Co., Militia
(SJR page 411). His wil, dated 15 May 1784 and proved 15 Nov. 1785, names his
Susannah, daughters, Derrickye, widow of John Pier, Rachel, wife of Thomas
and Garetye, widow of Brant Jacobusse. His grandson, Jacob Pier, is also
named. Land in
the mountains of the Notch and on the Plain "had of late father" is described
Derrickye, born 27 July 1738 (bible)
Rachel born 6 Aug 1745 (bible)
Geerrje born 3 Oct 1748 (SRCR).

Now you all have discussed marritje Adriaens prior to this posting pretty
good and I don’t
have anything to add that would prove that Adriaen Vincent would be her
Although what Howard was hinting at her and Annetje Vincent being half
siblings to the
younger Vincents, but there is really not enough to go on there.

I know I went out on a limb with Charles Vincent being the son of Jan
Adriaens Vincent
and Annetje Jans, (and I hear the saws running already), but I have always
thought that is
was better to have something to prove wrong than not a thing to work withl.
