THE WYCKOFF FAMILY

THE BODINE FAMILY
is an honored one in the history of France, but, moderate as were the
advices of Jean Bodin, the wise counselor of Henry III., his relatives
were afterwards compelled to flee, with other Huguenots, to Holland,
whonce they ultimately came to Stateu Island, at least as early as 1701.J
From the mouth of the Raritan they ascended to its sources. Among
the settlers of this region there were at least five of this name, all of
whom left a largo number of descendants.
* His Dutch Bible, with the family record, is in the possession of Rev.
Abraham Thompson. The homestead is now owned by James N. Pid-
coek, though recently modernized and remodeled,
| Ho waa known as " Pluto,"â€” a namo probably given him by some
schoolmaster, â€” from bis broad shoulders. It was commonly shortened
by his uwBochitea, unacquainted with the Greek philosopher, to "Plate."
% The earlier history of tho Bodin family liua been traced by the Rev.
Dr. Charles W. Baird, of New Rocbello, N. Y., for his forthcoming work
on the Huguenots of America.
John Bodine had a plantation, early in the laBt century, on the west
side of the North Branch. Immediately north of it was the Ammermau
tract, and immediately north of that the Du Mont tract. This John
Bodine had a sou Abraham, who married Mary Low, and had John,
baptized April 15, 174S; Judick, baptized March 31, 1745, married Sam-
uel Willemsen; Mary, probably the Mary that married Thomas Cooper;
Cathelyntje, baptized Sept. 3, 1749; Sarah, baptized Aug. 10, 1755 ; Cor-
nelius, baptized November, 1755, married Margaret Sutphen, of Six-Mile
Run, born 1754, and had Abraham, Peter, John, Cornelius, Gilbert,
Isaac, Charles, and George, all deceased.
Isaac Bodine had eleven children,â€” eight by his first wife, Cataleyn,
and three by his second wife, Jaunetje. These children, with dates of
baptism, were Jan, Nov. 19, 1703 ; Jantien, April 30, 1707; Frederick,
April 26, 1709 ; Mareyken, April 25, 1711 ; Kataleyn, Aug. 8,1713; Isaac,
April 5, 1715 ; Abraham. July 31, 1717 ; Elizabeth, Oct. 31, 1719 ; Hester,
Dec. 25, 1723 ; Isaac, Aug. 16, 1730; and Jannetje, Aug. 16, 1730.
Peter Bodine had two children by his first wife and one by his second,
Margrita. Their names and dates of baptism were Jau, April 30, 1712 ;
David, April 3, 1717 ; Mareytje, Oct. 15, 1738.
Jacob Bodine's wife was named Elizabeth. They had six children, â€”
viz., Jan, St. Jantien, Jacob, Catharine, Cornelius, and Antje.
Abraham Bodine married Adtiantje Janse, and had nine children,
among whom were Catriua, baptized April 14, 1725, and married Lode-
wyk Haydenbrook; Peter, baptized December, 172G, and twice married
(first, Mareytje; second, Widow Williamson); John, baptized Dec. 5, 1730,
married Femmetje Vorhees; Abraham, and Judick. The last named
was born March 17, 1735, and ultimately married John Thompson. (See

Ireland, as well as Scotland and France, contributed to build up the
Dutch settlement and church in this vicinity.
Joseph Muir Head was born at Strabane .Ireland, in 1727, and came to
America in 1747. He served in the French and Indian war in Col. Peter
Schuyler's battalion of New Jersey volunteers. He was in the battle of
Ticonderoga, and the flint-lock musket which lie carried, bearing his
initials, " J. M. H.," graven by his own hand, is still in possession of his
grandson, Joseph Thompson. He was a weaver by trade, and the carved
oaken box in which ho brought to this country the fine linen products of
his handicraft is still preserved by hiB great-grandson. John Ward Thomp-
son, of Oakland, Bergen Co , N. J.g
How he came to Aniwell does not appear, but he was often in the em-
ploy of Adriaen Aten, and in 1767 married his daughter Jude. She was
considered an heiress in her day; she was born July 9, 1735, and died
July 22, 1819. With $300 which he had saved he bought a house and lot
in Amwell, where his four children were born. In 1778 he bought
34 acres adjoining the pond of what are now Higgius' Mills, on the
South Branch, whence, in 1795, he removed to the farm (150 acres, pur-
chased of Simon Wyckoff) upon which ho died (April 12, 1819), at the
village of Readington, and upon which his son John, and afterwards his
son John, and John the third, lived until 1876.
His daughter Sarah Ann died in 1821, unmarried. His third child,
Elizabeth, married John Thompson, || and his fourth child, Mary, married
John Schamp. The descendants of all three are numerous throughout
the townships of Readington and Branchburg.

John, born July 28, 1771, died Aug. 13, 1844, married first (1799) Sarah
Van Syckol, who was born Nov. 5, 1779, and died Jan. 14, 1838. He lived
and died near the head of the " Brookye." Ho afterwards married ( 1839)
Olive Ann Hixon, daughter of George and Hannah Hixon, and now the
wife of Aaron L. Stout, of Readington. His only child was John, born in
Readington, March 14, 1804, died Aug. 25, 1849 ; married Sophia Van Dorn,
who died Nov. 14, 18G4. Thoy had Sarah Ann, wife of Jacob Vroom; Hetty
Maria, married John Ammorman ; Joanna (died June 30, 1853), married
Dr. A. T. B. Van Doron ; and John, married Mary, daughter of Aaron C.

Mary, born Sopt. 6, 1777; died at Pleasant Run, in 1870; married the
late John Schamp, and had Elizabeth Elisheba, Mary Ann, Peter I.,
Margaret, Joseph, and Sarah.

ing, and that his daughters made carpets when over eighty years of ago.
