Name, Bef 1625. 548 The original form of the family name, "Van Texel" - of Texel <>indicates that the general ancestor was born, or for a time resided on the well known island of that name, situated off the coast of Holland.

Emigration, Between 1609 and 1625. 548 The year of his coming cannot be exactly fixed, as the records of that time are incomplete. But he must have come over in one of the Dutch vessels which commenced trading with the Indians shortly after Hendrick Hudson, in 1609 sailed up the River which bears his name, and could not have arrived in this country later than 1624.
