History of Ancient Families of New Amsterdam and New York. Edwin R. Purple. Between 1875 and 1879, Edwin Purple contributed several articles to the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record on the first three or four generations of some of the ancient families of New York. Those articles, collected in this volume, feature the surnames Van Schaick, Siecken, Tymens, Brevoort, Varleth, Gouverneur, and those of other ancient and allied families.
