Gerrit2 Janszen Van Wicklen


       Picture of Dutch Church, Wijckel, Holland, where Gerrit2 Janszen was baptised.

        At age five Gerrit Janszen accompanied his parents to New Netherland, and two years later was named in the orphanmasters proceedings following his mothers death.  He probably grew up in Flatlands and was the Gerrit Jansz who joined the church there June 1681, [see "RECORD" of NYGBS 128:83-88.]

       When pressed to adopt a permanent surname towards the end of the 17th century, took the name of their native village and became "Van Wicklen."
