Hendrick Andersson Coleman1

ID #15311, (c 1640-a 1696)

Family: Bright Lightning b. c 1658

Biography

  • Hendrick Andersson Coleman was born c 1640, in Finland.1
  • He was usually called Henry.1
  • He was an Indian Interpreter - he spoke 5 languages.1
  • He married Bright Lightning, daughter of Big Thunder, c 1674 in Upland, New Sweden (Delaware River Valley Area).1
  • Hendrick Andersson Coleman died a 21 Dec 1696 in Carkoens Hook, Gloucester County, New Jersey.1
  • After arriving in New Sweden and eventually marrying, he and his wife would have spent their lives in the Delaware River Valley.

    "When the Swedes arrived in the Delaware Valley in 1638, they referred to the whole area of eastern Pennsylvania, southeastern New York State, New Jersey, western Long Island and Northern Delaware, as "Lenapehocking" or "The Land of the Lenape." The Lenape were willing to sell some of their land to the Swedish settlers and Supplied them with maize, fish, venison, and some furs." (Source: Lenni-Lenape (Delaware) Indians' History, Culture and Food, Nancy Baulis, 1-4-2006 (Before Penn: Swedish Colonists in the Land of the Lenape, Zoriana E. Siokalo, 1988, p. 17))

    In 1669, an insurrection broke out, headed by one Marcus Jacobson, generally known as the "Long Finn," who gave out that he was "the son of Coningsmark," heretofore one of the king of Sweden's generals. One of his confederates was Henry Coleman, also a Finn, and a man of property. Coleman had "left his habitation, cattle and corn" to reside among the Indians, with whose language he was well versed, where also the "Long Finn" generally kept. No treasonable acts are charged against these convederates except "raising speeches, very seditious and false," tending to the disturbance of his Majesty's peace and the laws of the government.

    On the 2nd of August 1669, Governor Lovelace issued a proclamation for the arrest of the parties, with an order to confiscate the property of Coleman, in case he did not surrender himself in fifteen days. The principal in the insurrection was soon arrested, and upon information of that fact being communicated to the governor and council, they expressed their great satisfaction on account "of the prudence and careful management" of the officers on the Delaware, "in circumventing and securing the prime mover of this commotion."

    He is described as the Swede at Delaware, and very well versed in the Indian language. (Pennsylvania Archive, Series 2, Vol. 7, pages 723-724, Papers Relating to the Dutch and Swedish Settlements On The Delaware River.)

    "Hendrick Andersson Coleman, brother to Lars was one of the principals accused in the Long Finn Rebellion, for which he drew a fine of 930 guilders. On 2 August 1669 the governor issued an order for his arrest, noting that Henry Coleman, well versed in the indian language, had abandoned his plantation, including cattle and corn, and was hiding out with the indians." (Source: 1671 Census of Delaware, Dr. Peter Stebbins Craig, JD., 1999, p. 25 (NYHM, Delaware Papers: Dutch, 283; Jeannette Eckman, Crane Hook on the Delaware, 28))

    What became of Coleman is not certainly known. He probably remained among the Indians for some years, when his offence was overlooked by the government.

    In 1676, by virtue of a warrant from Governor Andros, one hundred acres of land in the south part of Darby township was surveyed to "Hendrick Coleman" and Peter Pullen. Coleman was probably the same person. (Source: Delaware Lands, Secretary of States Office, Albany.)

    "Lars Andersson Coleman, a Finn, died unmarried in Gloucester County in 1693 when his brother Hendrick was named administrator of his estate." (Source: 1671 Census of Delaware, Dr. Peter Stebbins Craig, JD., 1999, p. 24 (New York Patents, 3:155))

    After the death of his brother, Hendrick Coleman moved to Gloucester County to live on the farm he inherited. He died about 1697, survived by his wife Anna and one daughter named Anna. (Source: 1671 Census of Delaware, Dr. Peter Stebbins Craig, JD., 1999, p. 25)

    "The 1693 Census Of The Swedes On The Delaware, Family Histories of the Swedish Lutheran Church Members Residing in Pennsylvania, Delaware, West New Jersey", (1993, Peter S. Craig, SAG Publications, Winter Park, Florida, Coleman, pages 76 & 86, for Coleman family.)

    1696, 4m (June), 9, Pennsylvania, Chester Court, present John Hendrix, Robert White, Henry Colman, Johanis ffriend, for being drunke for near three days at John Kocks house; present John Kocks for selling licker and letting men be drunk for neare three days together in his house. (Court 1:379-380.)

    1696, 7m (September), 8, Pennsylvania, Chester Court, John Hendrixson, Johanis ffriend, Henry Colman, Robert White pleaded not guilty; Hendrixson & ffriend fined 5 Shillings each; Colman discharged. (Court 1:391.)

    Henry Coleman conveyed his share of the same land in 1696. (Source: Recorder's Office, Chester County, Book A.)1
