This Research page contains material which may not be included in my manuscript The Falkenburgs
An American Colonial Family: Chapter 2 Colonial Roots
. In There are two reasons this material does not appear in the manuscript. First, in an effort to manage the size of the book or the flow of the story, I decided that some details should be relegated to research notes. In other cases, I simply don't know all of the facts needed to make a coherent presentation. Those notes are found here. In many cases they are notes to myself and may not represent fully explored and documented fact. If you have navigated to this page from a Google search, and you have not seen my manuscript, you may wish to follow the link below for a more complete story of the colonial roots of the Falkenburg/Falkinburg family.

Link to a summary document of Henry Jacobs Falkenburg Deeds.

The deeds summarized in this volume include lands in upper Burlington along the Delaware River as well as the original deed to the property in Little Egg Harbor. I believe that this is earlier than most have reported Henry's move to the coastal community.

If you explore resources like you will find more than one genealogy for our ancestor Penelope Stout who married Jacob Henry Falkinburg. I have done and analysis of the data, and explain why I have chosen to list Penelope's ancestry as I have in the book. The Ancestry of Penelope Stout.
