Hello Van Salee Cousins,
My husband is related to the Van Salees through Cornelia ANTHONISDOCHTER JANSZ Van Salee. Actually he is related to her husband, Willem Jansen (Jansz) Van Borckeloo. Our line comes from his second wife, Leybeset Jansen Claezen.
Your family history is SO interesting, wish we were related. I do have a bit of info. You all probably already have it but here goes:
Anthony Janse Van Salee Called "The Turk". He was called in an action of the case in New Amsterdam, June 1, 1654, as MULLATO FARBIG, i.e.swarthy.
Bergen, in his EARLY SETTLERS OF KINGS COUNTY, NEW YORK, states
"Anthony, from Salee, Vaes or Fez (Theunis Janszen Van Salee, in Dutch)
emigrated at an early date to New Amsterdam where he resided from 1633 to 1639, owning a town lot and a bouwery (farm). He died about 1676, intestate. In April, 1639 he and his wife were banished from New Amsterdam in consequence of their being slanderous and troublesome persons (disturbers of the peace).
He, however, appears to have managed to remain in the town until Aug.3, 1639, when on petition he was granted by the Director General or Governor Kieft, 100 morgens on the west end of Long Island, lying within the present bounds of New Utrecht and Gravesend, to which he removed...His father, probably a Hollander, was named Jan. Local designations Van Salee and Van Vaes indicate that he lived in Morocco long enough for them as his home. His father could have been Jan Jansen Van Haarlem, a sea rover. Anthony was erroneously called "The Turk".
His farm on Long Island was designated as "Turk's Plantation". Sometime before 1669, Grietse died and Anthony married Metje Grevenraet. In that year
(1669) the Jansens became residents of former New Amsterdam, then under English rule and, of course, called New York. They lived in a house on Bridge Street until Anthony's death in 1676. Metje continued to live there another ten years.
Does anyone have the names of Antomy children, dates of birth and death. I have found two different lists.
Children of ANTHONY VAN SALEE and GRIETJE REYNIERS are:
i.JAN VAN SALEE
ii.JANNETJE VAN SALEE m. JAN BERENTS VAN DRIEST
iii.ANNETJE VAN SALEE m. THOMAS SOUTHWARD; b. , Hempstead.
iv.CORNELIA ANTHONISDOCHTER JANSZ VAN SALEE.
v.SARAH VAN SALEE m. JOHN EMANS.
vi.EVA ANTONIS JANSEN VAN SALEE, b. 1641, Kings Co., NY; d. Bet. 1665 - 1735.
My other list has three of these people and several differnet others. HELP!!!
Thank, Norma House
