Origin of the surname “Van Noy:”
7 Cornelius Vernooy
Resided at Vernoy in France.
6 Cornelis Cornelissen Vernooy
Cornelous Corneliseen Vernoy
Note: early settlers of Dutch ancestry often signed their names with the name of their father and the name of the town they were from, or sometimes their trade. The Van meant “from.” So, this is Cornelis, son of Cornelis, from Vernoy.
Cornelius was a French Huguenot who immigrated from Holland to America on 20 January 1664 aboard the sailing ship De Trouw. He had previously fled from the town of Vernoy in France to the palatinate (a state of the old German Empire along the Rhine). In America he settled at Escopus (now Kingston), Ulster County, New York prior to 1665. In 1671 he obtained a patent for lands in Brabant, Ulster County in company with Jacob Burhaus and Jan Osterhout. Of interest: “History of Ulster County,” published 1880 by Peck, page 212 records that “the old VerNoy homestead was across the creek opposite the parsonage of the Reformed Church. It was built in 1731. A portion of the walls constitute a part of the present house. This place has been in the VerNoy family from the earliest settlement, and is now occupied by David VerNoy. The old Joachim Schoomaker house of 1700 was on the knoll near the old burial ground – across the creek from VerNoy.”
