    The Lane stock was Walloon, descendents from the Gallic Belgae. "What impresses the writer...is the fact that the Lanes have certain characteristics belonging to the Walloons;....The Walloons are always described as powerful in limb, many being quite tall; having dark hair, deep-sunk eyes, which are dark brown or blue; and they are usually skillful and industrious, in a word a very solid people." Honeyman, "The Lane Family," p. 112.

    Matthys was a soldier under Capt. De Swart, like his in-law Adriaen Lambertse Smeets, in the Gelderland. Though baptized in the Catholic Church (St. Martins), it appears he converted to the Protestant faith before joining the Dutch army. It is not unlikely he moved north with Capt. De Swart's company around the time of his mother's second marriage in 1640.

    He was married in Tuil in 1640 and had two sons baptized there. It appears the family then moved to Buren, just north of Tuil after 1646. Koenig (p.11) suggests that Matthys and Teunis emigrated to America in 1663 because of the floods in Dec. 1662. According to the records, there were big floods of the River Waal in 1651, 1658, and then Dec. 1662.

    The Lane family left Amsterdam on 15 March 1662/63 on the "Rooseboom" (Rose Tree), and landed in New Amsterdam. Matthys emigrated with his wife Marijken, who died on the passage over and was buried at sea, and four children. He married Adriaentje Hendricks shortly after arriving in the New World.

    Matthys was a farmer and he settled in New Utrecht, Long Island, NY, Long Island. He signed his name "Thys Jansen Van Pelt," but all his children dropped the "Van Pelt" and used "Laenen." Beekman says "The Lane, Tysen or Tice, Pietersen and Giberson surnames are all derived from the VanPelt progenitor."

    His descendants moved to northern New Jersey, where many of them still lived in the early 20th century. "The number of Lanes in this county and vicinity a century and a half ago was probably greater than that of almost any other family and today their descendants are exceedingly numerous...about one out of every eight of the subscribers to the "Quarterly" is a Lane, or a descendant of a Lane,..." Honeyman, p.110.

    Honeyman (p.114) mentions a son Anthonie Thyssen (Teunis), b. about 1646 , but he is guessing this is the 17 year old who emigrated with Matthys on the Rose Tree. That 17 year old was actually Gysbrecht. Not sure how this Anthonie Thyssen fits in, if at all.
