    Notes 
    • Johannes Van Yderstyn/ John Van Iderstine was born in Bergen County, New Jersey. Due to missing records it has been impossible to find a record of his birth or who is parents were. He appears to have been a descendant of Michael Tades who settled first on Manhattan Island as early as 1644. He then purchased a house in New Amsterdam in 1652 where he owned a tavern. Court records state that Michael Tades was a native of Yderstee a peninsula on the west coast of Sleswick which later became part of Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. Iderstee was founded in 1621 by a group of Dutch settlers who had been forced to leave Holland because of religious persecution. It seems likely that Michael or his descendants may have changed their last name to VanIderstine after coming to America to commerate their last home in Europe. In 1664 he took an oath of allegiance to England.
      John VanIderstine was stationed on Staten Island during most of the American Revolution. On 18 September 1782, John VanIderstine deserted his regiment according to Loyalist military records. No doubt he returned home to his wife and son. The Loyalist newspaper " Rivington's Gazette" contains the following entry from October 23, 1782: "John VanIderstine, another deserter from the British Army, is at this time under sentence of death, at Morristown New Jersey.” John VanIderstine's desertion is found in the British records but as Morristown was in American hands at this time it appears that the Americans captured him and tried him as a traitor. It is unknown how John escaped his death sentence and left New Jersey with his wife and young family. They sailed for Shelburne, Nova Scotia with other Loyalist families where they stayed for a year. In 1786 they came to Vernon River, Prince Edward Island where John and his family were given 340 acres near the headwaters of the Vernon River. Here the family grew and then spread out across North America over the last two centuries. It is interesting to notes that many of his descendants left Canada for the United States.
