      ANNETJE (2), eighth in the family of Luur Jacobsen Van Kuykendaal was baptized May 17, 1700, at Minisink, N. J. The record of her marriage to Roeloff Brink is found in the Kingston church register of marriages and reads, Married, "Sept. 27, 1718, Roeloff Brink, y. m. born in Horly (Hurly), and Antjen Kuykendaal, j. d. born in Menissing (Minisink), Banns registered Aug. 31." In this translation we have a mixture of English and Dutch. The letters j. m. and j. d. are for young man and young "dochter," (daughter). The expression "banns registered" brings the old custom of the Reformed church, requiring candidates for marriage to publish their intentions, three Sundays before the event was to take place. This announcement was made in the presence of the congregation, and was called "publishing the banns." The banns were not only published from the pulpit in this way, but were put on record in the church registers, to show that the custom of the church had been carried out.

      We have in this instance the first marriage of a Kuykendall and a Brink, though there were many afterwards. As the great great grandmother of the writer was Elizabeth Brink, the wife of Johannes Kuykendall, baptized at Minisink, Jan. 19, 1713, and a large number of descendants are now widely scattered over the country, perhaps a brief account of the origin of the Brink family will be interesting to many living Kuykendalls.

      The first of the Brink family to come to America, was Lambert Huybertson Brink and his wife, Hendrickje Cornelis. They came across the Atlantic in the ship "Truow," with two children, and a third child was born on the ship on the way.

      They came from Wageningen, Gelderland, a province of Holland, the same region that the Kuykendall ancestors came from. Wageningen is beautifully situated on the bluff, and overlooks the valley of the Rhine spread out below. The father of the Brinks who came to America soon died. "The old gentleman owned a certain house and garden situated in the neighborhood of Wageningen?a free and hired estate." These facts appear in a protocol bearing date of Nov. 28, 1660. The Brinks landed in this country and proceeded up the Hudson, to the Dutch settlements at Wiltwyck (now Kingston). Four years later, June, 1663, Wiltwyck was attacked and burned by the Indians and almost utterly destroyed.

      There was a great slaughter of its inhabitants, and a large number were taken captive by the Indians. Among these latter were the wife and children of Huybertsen Brink. They were later rescued, and the family moved a short distance out from Kingston, to Hurley. Here they lived until their children grew up and married. All the children took the name Lamberts, except Peter Lamberts Brink. Huybert had a son named Roeloff (Ralph), baptized at Kingston, 1684. Huybert's wife who bore this child was Henrdickje Swartwout. This Roeloff was the one that married Annetje Van Kuyukendaal. The name Brink signifies in Dutch, almost the equivalent of the English park or mead.

      This account of the origin of the Brink family is mostly taken from "Olde Ulster," a magazine that was published for ten years, in Kingston, N. Y., by a genial gentleman, Benjamin Myer Brink, whom I met in that city, in the summer of 1914. He is one of the descendants of the immigrant Brink mentioned in the account given above.

      The children of Annetjen Kuykendall and Roeloff Brink were:

      Hendrickjen (6), baptized Sept. 27, 1719;

      Margriet (6), baptized June 4, 1721;

      Johannes (6), baptized Feb. 3, 1723;

      Huybert (6), baptized April 8, 1726;

      Gerrit (6), baptized Oct. 20, 1728;

      Isaac (6), baptized July 12, 1741.

      The baptism of all the foregoing took place at Kingston, N. Y.

      The Walpack church was below the Minisink Islands where Jacob and Matthew Kuykendall lived for many years. The Brink family lived in the Walpack precinct not far from the church. As before mentioned, Thomas Brink was a warm friend of the Walpack church, of which he was an elder. The deed that he and Nicholas Schoonhoven gave to the tract of land for the church site, says they gave it "for their love and affection for the people of Walpack and the people about there."
