  • Notes 
    • Also called Hopper. In New Netherlands as early as 10 Sep 1651. He was a merchant, a freighter, and a trader in a variety of goods, including beavers, "zeewan" (wampum), tobacco, pottery, deerskin, elk hides, linen, brandy, grindstones, and florins and guilders.

      "There is evidence that the surname Hoppe (Hoppen) existed in Holland as early as the 16th Century. However, we can not be certain that he was Dutch, though it is likely that he, like his wife, was from Holland. George Olin Zabriskie pointed out that their youngest child was named Matthys Adolphus, and Adolphus is not a Dutch name. In typical Dutch fashion the child would have used his father's patronymic Andriesen as his middle name, yet none of his children appeared to follow that tradition. Andries always appeared in records with his surname listed as Hoppe or Hoppen, and never as simply Andries Willemszen, as was usual in those times. In fact his patronymic Willemszen was only used in one church record." [The Hopper Family, citation details below.]

      "Shortly before his death, he contracted to buy a large tract of land known as Broncks Land, and later known as Morrisania. After a complicated and long legal battle the property was finally purchased by Andries' widow, but it was sold again the next day, and then acquired by Capt. Richard Morris, for whom it was named." [Hopper Family]
