Biography

Niclaas was baptised February 1, 1685 in the Reformed Dutch Church of Kingston, New York. The record names his parents as Hendric Claasz and Debora Davidtz (his wife),[1] but Hendric was not his actual father. Debora identified the baby's father as "Dirrick Wootin Legg." Analysis indicates that Dirrick Wooden Legg was Dirck Van Vliet, who had only one leg. Hendrick Claasz Van Schoonhoven divorced Debora in 1687 and made a will leaving only "an English Schilling" to this man.[2]

Probable site of birth was Ulster County, NY.

Niclaes was the second generation born in New Netherland, and was the first generation to have primarily used the more English surname tradition.

He appears to not have used his patronymic name during recorded church events and dropped the surname "Van Schoonhoven" in favor of "Schoonhoven" by 1714.

As Navarro points out, this man's biological father was not Hendrick Claasz van Schoonhoven, but instead was Dirck Van Vliet. The father was identified as "nonbiological," but that data qualifier does not display on this page (unlike "uncertain").

I changed the father from Claassen-323 to Van Vlied-3. I marked this as "uncertain" because a different data qualifier is required in order to remove "nonbiological," and I don't know enough of the story to be comfortable selecting "confident."

Dirck Van Vliet was the fathr NOT Claes Van Schoonhoven as shown in references in the Schoonover Master Tree

Schoonhoven-100 and Schoonhoven-38 appear to represent the same person because: Clear duplicates
posted by Tom Quick
Schoonhoven-38 and Schoonhoven-100 are not ready to be merged because: Schoonhoven -100 has an error confusing Wtntje Quik with Wyntje Langue

The schoonhover profiles need close examination and correction.

posted by Tom Quick
Niclaas|Niclaes did not use the "van" prefix to Schoonhoven for his 3 marriages. He only used the prefix "Van" for the baptism of the children of Neeltje. He did not use the prefic "van" for the baptism of his remaining children.

At no point did he use the surname Schoonover for his church events.

Schoonhoven-100 and Schoonhoven-38 appear to represent the same person because: Both profiles represent the same person. They should be merged.

Please see the discussion on http://www.wikitree.com/g2g/74599/van_schoonhoven-surnames for LNAB. (I agree that Van_Schoonhoven-23 be merged INTO this one, Schoonhoven-38.)

Van Schoonhoven-23 and Schoonhoven-38 appear to represent the same person because: Investigation indicates that they are the same person. Van Schoonhoven-23 needs be merged into Schoonhoven-38, for best LNAB for his generation.
posted by Tom Quick
Your right, let's merge Van_Schooven-23 into Schoonhoven-38. Niclaas used "Schoohoven" for all church events after 1714. He was of course a second generation American and we were no longer Dutch after 1664. "Shoonhoven" appears to be the best LNAB for his generation. His contemporary Schoonhovens also dropped the "Van" for church events occurring during the same period. Thank you for your advice.
