The following is the lineage from Jan Barentse Wemple, fourteenth proprietor. He was an inhabitant of Beverwyck as early as 1643. Having purchased the interest of Martin Maurice Van Slyck in 1662, he recovered, as joint owner with Martin Maurice's brother, Jacques Cornelise, a patent for the Great Island, lying immediately west of Schenectady, which interest was subsequently owned by Swear Teunise Van Velsen, who had married Wemp's widow. Wemp also had a house lot in the village, on the west side of Washington Street, a little north of State Street, with a front of 200 feet on Washington Street, running down with equal width to the strand on the main Bennekill. He died in 1663, and left the following named children surviving him, viz:

Myndert, born in 1649, married Deborah, daughter of Evert Janse Wendell of Albany. He was appointed a justice of the peace of Schenectady, by Leisler, in 1689. He was killed in the massacre of February, 1690, and his son John, with two of his negro slaves, was carried into captivity. This son John, after his return, married Catalina, daughter of Ryer Schermerhorn, June 15th, 1700, and secondly, on the 16th of October, 1709, married Ariantje, daughter of Isaac Swits. He was one of the trustees of the Schenectady patent.

Barent, the second son of Jan Barentse, born in 1656, married Folkje, daughter of Symon Volkertse Veeder. He was appointed captain of a company of infantry, by Leisler, in 1690, and died in 1705, leaving a numerous family of children, from whom many of the inhabitants of this valley are descended.

Maria, his daughter, born in 1688, married Hendrick Vrooman.

Engeltie, his daughter, born in 1695, married Nicholas Hansen.

Margaret, his daughter, born in 1697, married Simon V. Veeder.

Anna, a daughter of Jan Barentse, born in 1653, married Captain Alexander Glen of Schenectady, a son of Alexander Lindsey Glen of Scotia.

Alida, another daughter, married Jan Cornelise Van der Heyden of Beverwyck.
