van der Heyl, Claes
- (d. 1591).In “The Diary of Alonzo Typer,” a member of a strange Dutch family who lived in Holland in the later sixteenth century and kept a diary between 1560 and 1580 telling of his strange delvings into the supernatural. His descendant, Hendrik, came to New-Netherland (i.e., New York state) in 1638 in search of a nameless “Thing.” Dirck, now settled in Albany, N.Y., built a house near Attica around 1760. He married a woman from Salem, Mass., and was the father of Joris (b. 1773), “that frightful hybrid,” and of Trintje, who would later marry Adriaen Sleght.
