In addition to what I sent off-line, I found the Philip I mentioned. This was shared with us by Dorothy Henion (Mrs. Harley). It is a baptism from NYG&B Record Vol. 28 p. 94. Philip Heyning and Catharina Adams bp. Sophia 26 April 1758. Sponsors were Johannes Hootz and Sophia Jong zhv. A Jong/Young family also shows up at the Lutheran Church in Mahwah, NJ, where both Hemions and Henions baptized children.
I note that 4 Dec 1661 Claes Heynen and Marritie Claes bp. a Gerrit. He may be the Claes Jansen Van Heyningen who later married Anneken (Ackerman) Hennion's stepsister Jannetje Kiersen d/o Kier Wolters. (Anneken Ackerman was the wife of Nathaniel Pietersen Hennion and her mother Lysbeth Ackerman, widow of David, m. 2nd Kier Wolters.) Claes and Jannetje bp. 4 Jan 1681 a son Johannes Claesen Van Heyningen who appears to have married Marritie Ellessen 26 Sep 1706. Other children of Claes and Jannetje were: Jannetje m. Matthys Louw; Marytje m. Evert Van Wagenen; unknown child bp. 1683; Hillegond m. another Evert Van Wagenen; Cornelia; Cornelius; and Sara perhaps married to Jacob Tietsoort. A couple of the daughters lived at or near Kingston, NY, and a couple lived in Dutchess Co., NY.
I don't know if there is any relationship between these people (Philip Heyning & Claes Jansen Van Heyningen) at all but note that the names John and Nicholas appeared frequently in the Hemion family. The similarity of the spelling of the surname doesn't mean much as people we know to be Hennions appeared a few times in early records with their name spelled Hennigen.
I read that Claes Jansen Van Heyningen was also known as Claes Jansen Tuynier. I have wondered if one name was a place name and the other had to do with an occupation.
One Henion family member, R. Henion Kramer, visited Holland and found the name of a town on a map (France or Belgium) spelled d'Enghien which when pronounced in French sounded like Hennion.
Would like to hear more about those who became Heermance at Kingston, NY, and Herman at Tappan, NY.
