    Notes 
    • The founder and patriarch of the family in North America was Johannes
      Verveelen, a brewer from Amsterdam, the Netherlands, who arrived in
      New Amsterdam in 1657 with his wife, Anna Jaarsvelt, daughters Anna
      and Maria, and his widowed mother, Anna Elkhout. His son, Daniel, had
      preceded him here five years earlier. His ancestors were from the
      Rhineland, his grandfather and father, the latter a shopkeeper, having
      moved to Amsterdam in 1610 to escape the oppression of Calvinists at
      Cologne.
      With a partner, Isaac de Forest, Johannes founded the Red Lion
      Brewery in New Amsterdam on what is now Beaver Street in downtown
      Manhattan, New York, two blocks south of Wall Street and east of
      Broadway. Subsequently, in 1661, he became one of the five original
      land grant recipients and residents of New Haarlem (now Harlem). He
      was the proprietor of the first inn in Harlem. He also operated
      ferries east across the Harlem River at what is now 125th Street and,
      later, across the Spuyten Duyvil Creek to the north (Map). Later he
      served as Harlem Constable, Magistrate, and Delegate to the General
      Assembly at Albany, New York.
