a springy blue animated arrow.

 

2) Though not proven, many DEWOLF descendents

believe the De Wolfs belonged to the oldest

aristocracy of Flanders, Saxony and Livonia

(the Baltic Provinces of Russia). According to

legend, the origin of the name DeWolf is

practically the same in every country. Frederick

DeWolf's first known ancestor, Louis De Saint

Etienne, of the French noble family of that

name, was one of King Charlles the fifth's

attendants on a hunting expedition. During

the chase, a wolf cub crossed the King's path;

Charles threw his lance at the cub, mortally

wounding it, and breaking the weapon against

a tree. An enormous she-wolf, seeing her cub

wounded, rushed from the forest, pouncing

upon the King, who had nothing but a

hunting knife with which to defend himself.

Louis De Saint etienne rushed between the

wolf and the King and dispatched it with his

sword, thus saving the King's life. As a reward,

the King Knighted Louis, who from this time

on was called De Loup, and was ancestor

of teh noble Frennch famiily of that name.

13a) (Controversial theory): Marriage to Alice Peck

Recorded in "Dolphs and DeWolffs" V 1 & 2, by

Carol Maginnis 351 Farnum Rd, Media, PA 19063

(and on Broderbund WFT V 6, Ed 1, Tree # 1667,

date of Import; Apr 2 1998: Carol theorizes that

 

13b) Alice is identified by her ownership

of land in Saybrook,

 

13c) The close relationship between Joseph Peck

and the DeWolfs

 

13d) And the fact that only the Pecks believed

a woman should own property in their own right.

 

13e) Few men who could give Alice a dower in

Saybrook were old enough to be her father

 

13f) And she was not found in the lines of the

14) a) The DeWolf "Arms"; Three wolves

heads, erased sable borne on the breast

of an imperial double-headed eagle,

sable - beaked, or, a coronet of baron

of the Empire.

 

14b) The DeWolf "Crest"; A Ducal

Coronet, a Demi-Wolf, jewels,

holding in dexter paw, a fleur-de-lis.

a springy blue animated arrow.

 

15) The original family name was DeWolf.

(some now use Dolf), This name is undoubtedly

of the continental origin. William DeWolf is

mentioned among the followers of William the

Conquerer in the year 1066, and the DeWolf

family appears in English history from that time

forward. "Burke's Complete Armory" gives

the DeWolf coat of arms, showing that the

family is, and has been for many years, and

English family.

 

a springy blue animated arrow.

 

16) That Balthazar was English appears from

his penmanship, which is clearly used by

educated Englishmen, and from the family

given names which are all English. It is also

seen in the fact that his children intermarried

with those of the best familiies of the English

settlers, a thing which would have been

impossible had he not been of English origin.

17) Balthazar's marriage to Alice Peck is also

recorded in; "The Ancestors of Alex Lorenzo

Tremble" (FTM Gen Site) "Deacon William

PECK born 1601 Near London, died Oct 4th in

Lyme, New London, or New Haven, CT. He

married Elizabeth HOLT, born 1587-1609/died

Dec 5th 1683 in Lyme, New London, CT. They

had the following children; 1) Jeremiah born

Jan 1622/23... 2) Alice, born abt 1625 in England,

died 1689 in Lyme, NL, CT, married Balthazar

DeWolf abt 1645 in Guilford, CT. 3) Elizabeth

a springy blue animated arrow.

 

18) There is a Court Record ( CT Colony

Records 15 Jun 1659 of Hartford Quarter

Court of 05 Sep 1661) which tells of an

indictment in Lyme, Ct of one Nicholas

Jennings of Bride Plaine who was arrested

and charged with Witchcraft in; causing the
