Vrooman

There were three early settlers of this name in Beverwyck and Schenectady. (Picture of Vrooman arms [small view | large view])

PIETER MEESE, settled in Beverwyck; m. first …… and secondly, Volckie Pieterse, widow of Gerrit Jan Stavast. In 1677 he lived in Joncker Street near the church; d. in 1684. His widow m. Adriaan Appel, June 28, 1685. Pieter Meese had but one son, Matthys, who with his wife, Maria Arnoutse Viele, made a joint will in 1684, in which they spoke of only one child Geertruy.

JACOB MEESE, carpenter and surveyor of Beverwyck, m. Elisabeth, wid. of Teunis Cornelise Swart of Schenectady. He made his will July 20, 1691, proved Sept. 22, 1691, wife Elisabeth executrix; spoke of no children; his wife was to occupy "my house by the bridge formerly Domine Schaets."

HENDRICK MEESE, the third brother of this name, was living "behind Kinderhook" in 1670; same year leased of Robert Sanders the long island called Steenraby, for six years; 1677 moved to Schenectady, where his home lot was on the north side of State Street, extending from Centre Street to, and including the Central R. R. depot. His bouwlandt was a portion of Van Curler's land; the engine house of N. Y. Central R. R. Co. southwest of the city, now stands nearly in the centre of his land; 1678 he mortgaged his house and barn lying opt voorste ende van t' Dorpe Shaenhechtady, &c. In the massacre of 1690 he was killed, with his son Bartel and two negroes. He left two sons, Adam and Jan.

ADAM, son of Hendrick Meese, b. in 1649 in Holland, was naturalized in the province of New York in 1715; in 1670, by consent of his father, he bound himself for two years to Cornelis van den Burgh to learn the millwright's trade for 80 guilders and a pair of new shoes the first year, and 120 guilders the second year; 1683 built a mill on the Sand kil where the Brandywine mills now stand; 1688 bought lands of the Mohawk sachems at Fort Hunter; in 1690, when Schenectady was attacked and burned by the French and Indiana, he saved his life by his bravery in defending his house which then stood on the west corner of Church and Front Streets; on this occasion his first wife Engeltie, with her infant child, was killed, and his two sons Barent and Wouter were carried away captives to Canada; 1697 went to Canada with an embassy to try to obtain the release of his sons (one of whom had turned Catholic), his brother (Jan?) and cousin (son of Pieter Meese of Albany), all carried away in 1690; 1703-1708 obtained a patent for the Sand kil and adjacent lands for mill purposes; 1714 obtained a patent for lands in Schoharie upon which he settled in 1715; some of the Palatines attempted to drive him off. He commenced a stone house 23ft. square by help of his sons, and had proceeded as far as the second story floor beams, when one night his unruly neighbors, led on by one Conrad Weiser, entirely demolished it. He then retired to Sehenectady and petitioned to the governor for redress. The governor commanded the sheriff of Albany to arrest said Weiser, and succeeded, it is presumed, in stopping the opposition to Vrooman's cultivating his land. [Doc. History, III, 412.] In 1726 he received an additional patent for 1,400 acres for his son Pieter; made his will September 12, 1729, proved June 13, 1730, spoke of the following children, save Christina and Jannetie, d. on his farm in Schoharie Feb. 25, 1730, and was buried in his private burying ground No, 36 Front Street.
