Research notes

Parents

It was originally concluded, even by Hoffman, that Eva was the daughter of Pieter Rudolphus de Vries. This was based on the fact that there was no baptism record for Eva. It was also based on the assumption that Frederick and Margaret's son Philip was baptized in 1664, leaving no room for the birth of Eva.

Hoff gave several reasons for why Eva was undoubtedly the daughter of Frederick:

The record of Philip's baptism in Barbadoes has since been discovered and he was in fact baptized in 1663, leaving plenty of room for Eva.

Every other record that pertains to Eva points to her father being Frederick.

  • Frederick referred to Eva as his oldest daughter in his will.
  • She received the same inheritance from Frederick as his other daughter.
  • She used the patronym of Fredricx at the baptism of her first child.
  • Her first son was named Frederick.

Eva was also likely named for Frederick's mother, Ebel/Ibel Feddricks.

It is unlikely that the daughter of Pieter, Maria, would have changed her name completely to Eva. It is not clear if Pieter's daughter Maria survived beyond childhood.

This profile is confusing. The research notes indicate that Peter Rudolphus de Vries is the father of Eva, but now it is showing as Frederick Philipse. Add to that confusion that the profile is DeVries-2, yet there appears to be no relation between her and any DeVries. This should either be marked as "in progress" or should be fixed to remove all the confusion. Thank you.
