Origin of the surname “Van Allen/Van Alen:”

 

The earliest families with surname Van Alen existed in the middle ages in the area of Germany that borders Oldenzaal, Holland – and perhaps elsewhere.  The immigrant(s) who brought the van Alen family name to America in the mid-1600s came from Oldenzaal, Holland, settling in the Albany and Kinderhook areas on the Hudson River frontier.  Members of the similar sounding Van Halen/Hallen family came to America from Utrecht, Holland about the same time, but settled further south in the Kingston, New York and Hackensack, New Jersey regions.  First names like Laurens and Peter were common to both family groups, which has caused confusion tracing ancestors back to their European origins.

 

 

Van Allen Cemetery: Many of Lucina’s direct ancestors were interred in the Van Allen (also called New Boston) Cemetery in the Town of LeRay, Jefferson County, New York.  This cemetery is located on the west side of Drake (New Boston) Road about 5 miles south of Route 441 and about ½ mile east of Interstate Route 81 (exit 49), where Drake Road intersects with Pink School House Road.

Note: Given the similarity in dates, spelling of the surname, and the names given to children, William J. Hoffman and other scholars through the years have felt the Laurens van Alen and Pieter van Alen found in early Fort Orange (now Albany) and Kinderhook, New Netherlands, were most likely the sons of Johannes van Alen of Oldenzaal, Holland.  However, records in New Netherlands do not name the parents of Laurens and Pieter of Kinderhook, so that cannot be proven.  In fact, it has not been shown conclusively that Laurents and Pieter were even brothers.

 

 

9   Laurentius/Laurens van Alen, Jr.

 

1. Biographical notes:

 

Perhaps the same Laurents van Alen, son of Johannes van Alen, Jr. of Oldenzaal, Holland (gen 11, above), who was born at Oldenzaal in 1631/32.  If so, he was baptized at Oldenzaal 14 March 1632; sponsored by Joannes van Alen, Sr.  Will dated 4 March 1712 at Kinderhook, now Columbia County, New York and proved 27 October 1714; probably interred on his farm at Kinderhook, New York.  Immigrated to New Netherlands and settled at Beverwijck (now Albany, NY) before 25 May 1660, when he and others (including presumed brother, Peter van Alen) petitioned local authorities.  Leased a house and lot in Albany on 8 August 1661.  Purchased land at Kinderhook (south, southeast of Albany) on 7 October 1669.  Held several public offices at Albany.  Referred to as "of Kinderhook" on 4 May 1697 when he purchased a house with garden and orchard and 2 parcels of land at Grootstruck in Kinderhook Township.  A Van Allen house at Kinderhook that dates from roughly that time is still in use there, maintained by the Historical Society of Kinderhook, New York.  Also on the property is a school house said to be the inspiration for Washington Irving’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.
