The Huyck family came to America in the person of John (Hanse) Huighen (Huygh, Huyck) in company with Peter Minuit, the commander and director of the Dutch West India Company and the real founder of the city of New York. In 1891 Mr. A. A. Vosterman Van Oijen, genealogist and Heraldisch Archief, residing at The Hague, made investigations that gave many facts concerning the Huycks in Holland. They showed that while the family belonged to the burghers, they had occupied positions of trust and honor as far back as the sixteenth century. Copied from the registers of births, baptism, and marriages found there appear the same names that occur in the American family. Among Dutch publications is a well-known romance in two volumes entitled Ferdinand Huyck, which has made the name Huyck a familiar one in many homes of that country. The arms of the Huyck family are: "The escutcheon; in argent, a demi-lion of sable. The helmet; a patrician one. The crest; a demi-lion of sable. The mantling; argent and sable."

(I) This record is traced from Henrie Huyck, a merchant from Roemond, who in 1616 became a resident of Nymegen, Holland, and took the oath for himself and eleven children, of whom Jan (John) became grootstraat in 1617, while Henrie, the second son, became burgomaster of the town and left a numerous offspring.

(II) Jan, son of Henrie Huyck, chieftain of the grootstraat, Nymegen, Holland, April 18, 1617, emigrated from Wesel, a strongly fortified town on the Rhine. Here his youthful days had been spent and he had risen to some prominence, being a deacon or an elder in the church. He took passage on a small Dutch vessel, the "Sea Gull," in company with his brother-in-law, Peter Minuit, who was the first director in the New World of the Dutch West India Company. Jan was the "koopman," storekeeper, for the company. They landed May 4, 1626, after a voyage of four months, on the island of Manhates, now the site of the present city of New York. A small colony composed of thirty houses had been established there, a fort had been staked out and a stone building thatched with reeds erected as a counting house for the use of the company. Here the director and Koopman took up their residence, transacted business and exerted every energy to advance the interests of the company. Not having an ordained minister in the colony, two "Zercken Troosters," comforters of the sick, were appointed who should read the Scripture, the Creed and a sermon on the Sabbath. John (Jan) Huyck was one of the two appointed. The following year a minister having arrived, a church was organized with Peter Minuit and John Huyck, elders, they having been in Holland, one a deacon, the other an elder. John Huyck was an honorable, intelligent and reliable man, and during his permanent settlement at New Amsterdam has honorable mention. His wife was Lizabeth Peters, who survived him and married (second) July 5, 1657, Dirck Weijerts.

(III) Andries Hanse, son of Jan and Lizabeth (Peters) Huyck, was of New Amsterdam, Kinderhook and Albany. He was the owner of a large estate at Kinderhook, New York, which he obtained by a patent from King James II., dated March 14, 1636, and much of this is still in the possession of a descendant. Andries Hanse and his wife were among the first members of the old Dutch church in Albany, mentioned in 1683, all previous records of this church being lost. He made his will, August 23, 1707. His wife was Cathalin Lammerse Van Valkenburgh, of Kinderhook, who was living in 1705 and is mentioned in his will with ten children:

He seems to have been a man of stirring business faculty as well as a devout Christian. He was deacon of the original Dutch Reformed church at Kinderhook, in 1722 and 1723, probably serving many years. He married, August 28, 1707, Annalie Ratcliff (Radcliff), of Albany, New York, born January 10, 1686, daughter of Jan Radcliff and his wife Rachel Lambertse Jochense Van Valkenburgh. Children:

His pastor, Rev. John Gordon, wrote of him, "All who have been in any way interested in our village during the last half century will remember his kind face, his ready smile, his warm sympathy, and his activity in every good work. He came to the village in early manhood and has ever since been so identified with its interests, that all must feel his loss. He was always most active in educational matters, one of the supporters of the Academy in its most prosperous days. Many of our citizens are indebted to him in a measure for that education that enabled them to succeed in life and always to be found boldly on the side of morality. His influence in the community cannot be too highly estimated. A constant attendant at the Presbyterian Church, he felt a deep interest in its welfare." John S. Huyck married, April 2, 1834, Isabella Conkling, born July 9, 1809, died at Brooklyn, New York, April 11, 1874, daughter of Daniel Conkling, of Rensselaerville, New York.

In the early fifties he went to California with his friend, Dr. Harvey Hyde Wickes, settled in Nevada City, that state, where for ten years they carried on a successful drug business. In 1864 he located in Syracuse, New York, where he engaged in the wholesale drug business. He was a member and trustee of the Presbyterian church of that city, and a Republican in politics. "A true man and without guile, all who knew him were his friends." Children:

(IX) Francis Conkling, son of John S. and Isabella (Conkling) Huyck, was born at Rensselaerville, New York, July 10, 1838, died in Albany, New York, July 4, 1907. He was educated in the Rensselaerville and Canandaigua academies, and during his long and busy life was a woollen manufacturer. In 1872 he became a member of the firm of H. Waterbury & Company, manufacturers of papermakers' felts with plant at Rensselaerville. This firm continued until 1880, when Mr. Huyck withdrew and in association with C. E. Argersinger established a plant at Kenwood for the manufacture of the same class of goods as made in the Rensselaerville plant. Their mill was destroyed by fire in 1894 and never rebuilt. Mr. Huyck in association with his sons formed the firm of F. C. Huyck & Sons and built a new mill at Rensselaer, continuing there the manufacture of papermakers' felts. He remained in active business until his death, leaving to the care of his sons the business with which he had been so long connected. Although his home was in Albany, he continued to make Rensselaerville his summer home, and took the liveliest interest in the prosperity of this village. One of his benefactions was the gift of a public hall and a library to his native village. He was a man of great public spirit, liberal and broad-minded and of strictest integrity in all his dealings with others. He was a member of the Presbyterian church of Rensselaerville, the Holland Society of New York, and of the Albany Chamber of Commerce.

(The Conkling Line)

Isabella Conkling, wife of John S. Huyck, was of the sixth generation from Annanias Conklin (Conkeline), an early settler on Long Island, New York.

(I) Annanias Conklin and his brother are mentioned in Savage's Genealogical Dictionary as being early settlers of Salem, Massachusetts. Annanias was made a freeman at Salem, May 18, 1642. This meant that he was of lawful age and a member of the church, none others being allowed to vote or hold office. He had three children baptized at Salem. In 1650 he removed to East Hampton, Long Island, his brother John going farther down the island, settling at Southold, where he died. An old gravestone reads: "Here lieth Captain John Conkelyne, born in Nottinghamshire, England, and died at Southold, Long Island, April 6, 1794, aged 64 years." This establishes the English home of the family, although Annanias the elder may have been born in some other part of England.
