    Notes 
    • Jan Jansen Junr, b. about 1643; m. Adriana (???); settled in Flh, of which place he was a mem. of the R. D. ch. in 1677, and where he took the oath of allegiance in 1687, and where in 1676 he kept a tavern. From a map on file in the off. of the Sec. of State at Albany, made by "Ja. Cortelyan," without date and filed Aug. 8, 1681, of 6 farms in Flh, it appears that "John Ditmarsen" owned "a double lot" on the W. side of the main road or "highway to the ferry," nearly adjoining the Flds boundary and S. of the land of "Klyn Dirk" (Dirk Janse Hoogland), "Broad before 56 rods 7 foot" (about 692 ft. 7 in. English measure) "after 64 rods 5 foot (about 788 ft. 8in.), long 600 Rod" (about 7350 ft.), cong. about 60 morgens. Apl. 24, 1681, "Jan Janse Ditmarsen" bought of Gerret Lubbertsen a farm in Flh on the W. side of the highway, S. of Hendrick Janse Oesterstroem, N. of the Flds boundary, stretching W.S.W. 600 rods, broad 27 rods and 5 ft., cong. 27 morgens and 300 rods, as patented by Gov. Stuyvesant May 17, 1662, with meadows, as per p. 49 of Lib A of Flh rec. This purchase covers a portion of the land on the above-referred-to map of Cortelyan, which land remained in the Ditmars family until about 1825, when Maj. John Ditmars's share (the owner of a part of the same) was sold to David Johnson, since which it has been sold in parcels, and on it is located the main portion of Greenfield or Parkville.

      Signed his name "Jan Jansen Van Ditmarsen."
