PIETER CLAESEN WYCKOFF'S ENGLISH ANCESTORS

by Emily M. Durham

To those of us who find fascination in delving among the records of the past, and to those others who may experience delight in a faded coat-of-arms and the "Knights of Old"...we are told that King Harold of England, who died in 1066 in the Battle of Hastings, was not just the son of Earl Godwine of Wessex, in England, but of the true Saxon royal house of England, from King Aethelred I, older brother of King Alfred the Great and grandson of King Egbert, who died 839.

In the Wyckoff Genealogy, under Chapter I, "European Progenitors," Dr. Gustave Anjou [WARNING: Gustav Anjou is infamous for fradulent research and for falsifying lineages! -- Webmaster], tells us that Pieter Claesen Wyckoff was seventeen generations removed from Godwin, Earl of Wessex and Kent, England, and his wife Gytha, through their son Harold, King in England, 1035-1040, and his daughter Gyda.

The line runs as follows:
1. King Egbert, died 839.
2. King Aethelwulf, d. 858.
3. King Aethelred I, brother of King Alfred the Great,
Aethelred d. 871, Alfred 899.
4. Earl Aethelhelm d. 898.
5. Earl Aethelfrith, d. 924.
6. Earl Eadric, d. 949.
7. Earl Aethelweard I, the Historian, d. 1002 and his wife
Aethelflaed.
8. Earl Aethelmaer, d. c. 1017; and his wife Aethelthrith.
9. Thegn Wulfnoth of Sussex, d. 1015.
10. Earl Godwine of Wessex, d. 1053 and his wife Gytha.
11. Harold Godwinesson, d. 1066.
The above information comes from a long article in the January, 1957 Quarterly of the New England Historical and Genealogical Society, pages 30-38, written by Lundie W. Barlow and communicated by the Committee on English and Foreign Research and is thoroughly documented and substantiated by two pages of references to English Wills, Deeds, Domesday entries, Anglo-Saxon Wills and Writs, Royal Charters, etc.

The following is taken from the Wyckoff Family in America(2).

EUROPEAN PROGENITORS

The Roots of the Wyckoff Family run deep into Scandinavia, and, like most lines in the sixteenth century and earlier, have no sharp racial definition. The two generations immediately behind our earliest ancestor in the New World, Pieter Claesen (Wyckoff), were
[Page 573]
linked by marriage with Holland, validating the claim of Dutch descent. But back of these female connections is a long line of coastal traders who trace through Swedish and Danish ancestors who were more truly citizens of the world than subjects of organized nations. It is not strange, therefore, that the line of Old World progenitors becomes increasingly unsure with each stage of the voyage back into that dim and largely uncharted past.

Somewhere in the late 1920's, William Forman Wyckoff engaged Dr. Gustave Anjou [WARNING: Gustav Anjou is infamous for fradulent research and for falsifying lineages! -- Webmaster], who was going abroad for genealogical research for other families, to give some time to following back the line in which Pieter Claesen descended. The report turned in, like that of many another similar quest, begins plausibly and then proceeds from the known to the unknown with no clear break between the two. Not every member of a Scotch clan could claim blood relationship with "the Head" whose name spread like a mantle over his loyal followers. It is quite as untenable to assume that we have established consanguinity by merely matching names in times when nomenclature was largely personal and patronymics generally non-existant. Dr. Anjou's report [WARNING: Gustav Anjou is infamous for fradulent research and for falsifying lineages! -- Webmaster],, condensed to a skeleton genealogical line, follows; but few will accept it in toto as more than a fantastic possibility; certainly not as the water-tight line of descent of a single family.
