    Notes 
    • Jacob (alias Hellakers), emigrated to this country from Amsterdam as early as 1634; was b. in 1612; m. 1st, in Europe, (???)(???), by whom he had 3 children; m. 2d, in this country, Truytje Teunisse, sometimes called Truytje Jacobs, wid. of the father of Teunis Idesse. Truytje m. after the death of Jacob, Jan Strycker of Flh. There was a Jacob Swart in N. A. in 1638, a soldier, who July 28, 1639, was found guilty of mutiny, as one of the ringleaders in refusing to work on the fort, and was banished. It is possible that this may have been another Jacob. Jacob Swart was a master-carpenter, residing in N. A., who in 1652 sued Wm De Kay for 48 beavers for building a saw-mill in the Virginias. In 1657 he appears to have resided in Gd, and was entered on the records of said town as having 17 A. under cultivation, from whence in that year he removed to N. U., where he was among the first settlers, and in which place he built the first house. Apl. 21, 1661, he obtained from Gov. Stuyvesant a patent for 24 morgens in N. U., lying between the lands patented to Claes Claesen (Smit) and those patented to Jaques Cortelyou. This patent is to "Jacob Swart," but in the body of the instrument his name is entered as "Jacob Swarwout." He was a mag. of N. U. in 1661 and '64, and on the patent of 1668. In 1679 he appears to have resided in N. Y., and is referred to by the "De Labadiests" on p. 286 of Vol. 1 of the Memoirs of the L. I. His. Soc.
      Signed his name "Jacob Hellakers."
