    Notes 
    • "aka van Schalckwyck, 'afterwards called Ostrom, van Oosteroom and van Ostrum.'

      "The identification of 'Oosterom' with 'van Schalckwyck,' here first made, determines the Oosterom ancestor and gives the baptismal dates of two of his children, Jan and 'Trintje. Van Oosterom owned land at Flushing, L. I. (Bergen's Early Settlers, 217), and at Bergen, N. J. (Winfield's Land Titles, 69, 70, 127, 270, 272, 314)."
      Hendrick Jans Ostrum was one of the two first settlers of Poughkeepsie, New York (Baltus Barents Van Kleeck was the other). He signed a lease in Albany on 9 Jun 1687. His son Jan Hendricks "bought a farm on the north side of Main, between the modern Innis Avenue and Pershing Avenue. That farm ultimately became the Glebe of the Church of England in Dutchess County and the Glebe House, built in 1767, is now the property of the City of Poughkeepsie."
