23) NICOLAS SNEDEN

b: ABT 1640 d: 1677

FLUSHING, NY (10GGF)
Thank you to Pat Wardell for the following:
23a) "Although there is no proof as yet of the family's
precise European ancestry, it seems likely that the
Sneden family once thought to have been of Dutch
descent, probably originated in England, perhaps Wales,
and found it's way to the American colonies via Amsterdam.
It has been suggested that the name might be derived from
 Mt. Snowden, in Wales, or from the vicinity of Schelten,
or Skelton, in Cumberland, England.
23b) Claes Sneden along with his brother, Jan Sneden,
and Jan's wife; Crietje and their two children. (their
only son, Carsten, apparently left no children), was the
 first American Sneden settler, sailing from Amsterdam
in December of 1657 to New Amstel on the Delaware.
Claes (Nicholas), and later his children, are found in New
Amsterdam, Flushing, and Hempstead, Queens County,
New York, from about 1662 (and perhaps as early as Jan
1658), until 1698 or later. Snedens began to settle around 1690-
1710, in Westchester County, on Western Long Island (Oyster
Bay and vicinity), and in Southern New Jersey in Salem
(and later Cymberland) county.
23c) Snedens (or Snethens), as this branch seems to have
spelled the name, from southern
New Jersey, began to remove to Pennsylvania and further
west and south before the Revolution. These Snethens pioneered
 the settlement of Kentucky, Ohio, Missouri, Indiana, Iowa,
and points furtherNorth, South, and West.
23d) During and after the Revolution,
 several of the New York Snedens, being Loyalists, settled
in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. Someof these families
or their descendants later moved back to the United States,
settling in, among other places, New York, northern
 New Jersey, North Carolina, and Massachusetts.
By 1850 those of the name were widely dispersed, and
 few with the surname remained in Westchester County,
NY, and Cumberland and Salem Counties, NJ.
23d) On December 23, 1657, Claes Sudeich (Snedich), his
brother Jan, and Jan's wife and children, set sail from
Amsterdam on teh "De St. Jan Baptiste", under Captain
Symon Classen, (Claeson), bound for the Dutch settlement
of New Amstel (later called New Castle) on the Delaware
River. Jan and his probably younger brother, Claes, are the
founders of the Sneden family in America. They were
 thought to be descended from a family who were said to
 have lived for many years in Amsterdam. The only clue to
 this assumption seems to have been that Jan, Claes,
 sailed from Amsterdam. It now seems likely however
 that the family may have originated in England and
specifically perhaps in Wales.
