I am submitting this information in case anyone is searching for descendants of the original John. I have seen a genealogy book on this family, but apparently did not see anything further back than Andries Anderson.
My ancestor Joseph Hedges married Catherine Stalcop/Stalcup who was born in 1685 in New Castle, Delaware; she died in 1740 in Frederick/Carroll Co., Maryland.
Catherine was the daughter of John Stalcop/Stalcup, who was born in 1650 in Lucas Point, New Jersey, where he also died. John was married to Anneke (Anna) Ericksen.
John was the son of Jan Stalcop/Andrieson, who was born in 1617 in Sweden; he died in 1685 in New Castle, Delaware. John was married to Christina carrols, who died in 1687 in New Castle.
Jan was the son of Andries Anderson and Christina Goolbrant.
For anyone who might not have seen the explanation of the name change - I have read that when Jan Andrieson/Anderson came to this country he wore some type of cape on board ship. He was given the nickname "Steel Cape" and decided to use it as his surname. (I don't think I've read why he did not want to use his own name, maybe it was too "common."
I am interested in exchanging information on any of these lines.
