Jan Baerdan1

M
     Jan Baerdan was (an unknown value) at weaver.1 He From an old Historical Discourse, by Rev. William B. Van Benschoten , of Wyckoff, N. J. , published in The Bergen County Democrat, March 5 , and 12, 1869 , we learn that two brothers of the Berdan family came from Hackensack , to Upper Preakness , some time between 1715 and 1720 , and bought 400 acres of land there at eighteen cents per acre. One of these brothers was married, and the other not. The unmarried brother, having a wife in view, began to build a log house, but died before it was finished; when the married brother finished and occupied it; and he became the progenitor of all of the name in this section. If, therefore, Van Benschoten is correct in his statements, the Berdans may be the oldest Preakness family in existence.
However, we cannot yet by any means substantiate these declarations. There is probably no question but that the first Berdan, Jan , who spelled his name Baerdan , after the revocation of the edict of Nantes, in 1685 , came to this country, in the latter part of the seventeenth century, as a Huguenot refugee from Holland , and that with his wife and only son, who was also named Jan , or John , he settled somewhere on the present site of Brooklyn . Baerdan 's wife soon after this died, when he married again, and by his second wife had two daughters. Jan, Jr. did not get along very well with his stepmother, and in the course of a few years, quite early in life, left home. This second Jan , or Jan, Jr. , the only son of the first Jan Baerdan , appears to have been the progenitor of all the American Berdans. He first married Eva Van Siclen May 20, 1693 , at Flatbush, Long Island , by whom he had at least eleven, and perhaps twelve, children. The oldest of the children, a daughter, Marretie , who first married Joris or George Doremus , of Lower Preakness , was born at New Amersfoort, (Flatlands), Long Island ; but all the rest of his children were born and baptized in New Jersey . Shortly after the birth of his first child, Jan moved to Hackensack, N. J. His third child, and second daughter, Eva , married Cornelius Kip , also afterwards of Lower Preakness , a partner of George Doremus (and now also his brother-in-law), in a Jan , the father of these children, about forty years after the first one, occurred November 6, 1733 , when he married Vrouwtjen Van Dien , widow, at Hackensack . He owned several parcels of land about Hackensack , particularly in the region of what is now Maywood , certainly one also at Slotterdam , and 362 acres in Upper Preakness , on Singac Brook , which last parcel he bought of the heirs of Thomas Hart , November 18, 1720 , and for which he paid £72 and 10s., or just fifty cents per acre. If Jan himself never lived on this land, in Preakness , surely one or more of his sons did. His fifth child and third son, Albert , born January 17, 1702 , and baptized January 25 , at Hackensack , who, September 29, 1727 , married Divertje Banta , (bap. May 24, 1710 ), owned this land in his day, and lived on it; and he had a son Jacob , born March 28, 1746 , as well as a son John , who both likewise owned the same land in their day, and apparently lived on it,-the latter selling some of it, his share, no doubt, to Edo Marselis , in 1769 ; while the former, that is, Jacob , held what belonged to him, and handed it down to his posterity. A part of the original 362-acre tract, at any rate, is still in possession of the family (1902 ), in the person of a great grandson of this Jacob , son of Albert , viz: James D. , who is in the sixth generation from Jan, Jr. , or the seventh from the first Baerdan in the country.
Jan Berdan, Jr. , who married Eva Van Siclen , in 1693 , was Justice of the Peace in Bergen County 1716, 1720, 1721, 1723-7, 1731 , and probably later, as well as it may be, between all these dates; although, in regard to dates later than these, it may have been a son, or grandson, of the same name, who was Justice 1741, 1743 , as well as Freeholder 1745-8 .
We will give next what we have from the records concerning this Jan Berdan and his family:
First marriage at Flatbush, Kings Co., Long Island , May 20, 1693 , Jan Berdan and Eva Van Siclen ; second marriage at Hackensack, N. J. , November 6, 1733 , Jan Berdan , widower, and Vrouwtjen Van Dien , widow. (Maiden name, Verway .)

Note.-The three Kips here mentioned were brothers.
Of the children of Albert Berdan 's son Jacob , of Upper Preakness , who was born March 28, 1746 , and who married Rebecca Ryerson , we mention only two.
1. Albert , (b. 1767 , d. 1837 ), who married Mary Ackerman , (b. 1771 .)
2. Polly , or Mary , who married Uriah Van Riper , the great grandfather of Mrs. Andrew P. Hopper , and Mrs. C. H. Post .
Albert Berdan , (b. 1767 ), who married Mary Ackerman , had children:
1. Jacob , (b. 1790 , d. 1875 ) who married Catharine Demarest , a daughter of the Rev. John Demarest , of Ponds . These were the parents of the present (1902 ) James D. Berdan .
2. Christina , b. 1793 .
3. Rebecca , b. 1801 , who married Garret Berdan , of Lower Preakness , a second cousin of her father's.
Jacob and Catharine (Demarest) Berdan 's children, were Sarah , Maria , Rebecca (1), Caroline , Albert , Rebecca (2), Margaret , John , James D. , Elizabeth , William .
Rebecca (2) was struck by a locomotive at Hackensack, N. J. , and killed, July 28, 1900 .
Harry M. Berdan , son of James D. , who married Elizabeth Berdan , of Paterson , has been Freeholder, Township Clerk, etc.
The site of the log house, on the Berdan property, in Upper Preakness , was just back of where the barn buildings of the present James D. stand . The first story of the main part of the old house now occupied by the family was built, (according to the father of William Roome , of Butler , who was a surveyor), in 1792 , either by the son or grandson, Jacob , of the first settler, according to whether that first settler was Jan , who married Eva Van Siclen , or his son, Albert , b. January 17, 1702 . The second story of the house was built by Albert Berdan , b. 1767 , the grandfather of the present James D. , and the son of the original builder. In his time, that is, in Albert 's time, the Indians used to have a summer encampment across the little brook north of the house; while, in the winter, they would go to Bloomingdale , as it is now, and make their winter quarters in the thick woods there. From these Indians, with whose children the said Albert played, when he was a boy, has been handed down the name Pra-qua-less , or "quail woods."2
Jan Baerdan was also known as Jan Berdan.3 He lived in 1685 at Flatlands, Kings, New York, USA.1
