    Notes 
    • The words van der Heyden signify "from the heather." At an early day some Dirk van der Heyden may have been so called to distinguish him from another Dirk, perhaps Dirk van der Berg (from the hill) or Dirk van der Beng (from the city). There are peculiarities about the derivation of Dutch surnames that make it extremely difficult to trace the genealogy of many of the old Dutch families. The first Van der Heyden in the Hudson valley was Jacob Tyssen, who came from New Amsterdam to Bever Wyck in 1654. In 1676 he was over sixty years old. He married Anna Hals, in Amsterdam, Holland. They had a son Dirk.

      Jacob lived in Albany, New York and was a tailor and fur trader. He came from New Amsterdam to Beverwyck 1663

      Hudson & Mohawk Valleys p 683, gives date from New Amsterdam to Beverwyck in 1654; in 1676 over 60 yrs old.
