Hendrick Jacobsson was born in Sweden and recruited as a soldier for the 1654 trip of the Örnen (the Eagle) to New Sweden, which arrived at Fort Christina on 22 May 1654. [1] Soon after he married Gertrude and lived in Calcon Hook. [2]

"About 1676 Hendrick also acquired a half-interest in 100 acres on Crum Creek owned by Nils Mattsson and was living at that location in February 1683/4 when he and his son Jacob Hendricksson posted bond for his wife Gertrude's good behavior. Like Nils' wife, she had been accused of witchcraft."[3]

Hendrick then moved his family to New Castle County where, in 1686, he acquired 100 acres (surveyed in 1703 as 238 acres) on the south side of Brandywine Creek. [4] Hendrick Jacobsson's will (dated 5 May 1704, proved 6 June 1704) and property records identify seven children, surnamed Hendricksson: [5]

  1. Jacob, b. by 1656
  2. Catharine, b. c1658, m. John Anderson Cock
  3. Hendrick, b. by 1662
  4. Maria, m. Charles Springer
  5. John, b. by 1666
  6. Anna
  7. Wiliamke

Hendrickson-270 and Jacobsson-23 do not represent the same person because: No compelling reason to match.

Hendrickson-270 and Jacobsson-23 appear to represent the same person because: It appears that Hendrickson-270 originated as an attempt to create a father for John Hendrickson. His correct father is Hendrick Jacobsson, i.e., Jacobsson-23.
