Abstract
Photo of an 1865 painting of a house that was occupied by the same Dutch family from 1699 to 1926. It is believed to have been built by Nicholas Varleth (or Varlett) and/or Balthazar Bayard in 1664, shortly after the founding of the village of Bergen where it stood at the corner of Bergen Avenue and Newkirk Street until it was moved to Westfield, N.J. in 1926. In 1699 it was purchased by Jan Arianse Sip and occupied by his descendants for over 200 years. In 1776 Major General Cornwallis spent the night here as he pursued General Washington. This depiction shows how little the area had changed as late as the mid 19th century, when the Dutch language was still commonly heard.
