ALLARD HEYMANSEN ROOSA arrived in the harbor of New York on 15 Apr 1660 aboard DE BONTE COE (The Spotted Cow) with his wife and eight children. He married WYNTJE ARIENS DE JONGH born about 1630; daughter of Adrian Meertensen De Jongh. They settled at Wiltwyck (now Kingston NY) and Allard became a prosperous farmer on the rich land. He was a man of considerable means as evidenced by a Power of Attorney appointing Adrian D'Jong to manage his assets in the Netherlands; this was dated shortly before his departure for North America. This document names him as "yeoman at Herwynen". Allard died 27 Feb 1678/9 Hurley NY.
