  • Notes 
    • He immigrated from Zeeland in the Netherlands and settled in New Amsterdam, (New York City) on what was known as "Rutger's old farm" which was just north of the Brooklyn Bridge. At the time of his landing there were hardly 500 white persons on Manhattan Island. The agricultural immigrants of that day would have sneered at the present day attempts to aid the farmers for in Claes' day the West India Company supplied the colonist not only with free land, but with horses, cattle and provisions as well, to be returned at the farmer's convenience. After allowing him ten years to establish his farm, they collected as a rental one-tenth of his produce.
