In Reply to: Canadian Van de Water Family by Willie Armstrong of 413

As you may already be aware, but maybe not, the original Canadian Vandewater is the son of Peter Vandewater and his second wife Aagje de Lange. Peter is the son of Jacobus Vandewater and Helena Losee. Jacobus Vandewater is the son of Benjamin Vandewater and Engletje Lieverse. Benjamin is the son of Jacobus van de Water and Engletje Andrieszen. Jacobus is the son of Benjamin van de Water and Lisjbeth de Meersman. This Benjamin was the first of this line of Van de Waters to arrive in the New World. (Emphasis is placed on this line as Benjamin was preceeded by Hendrick to whom he is not related.) Benjamin arrived around 1651 as a merchant and passed away in January of 1653,either as the result of illness or more probably foul play.
