bullet  General Notes:

From Bean: Arents Klincken, who came from Dalem, near Creyfelt, in

Holland, to this country in 1683, having known William Penn in Holland. He built the first two-story house ever raised in Germantown, Penn having been present and partaken of the raising-dinner. It stood near the southwest corner of Main and Tulpehocken Streets. Arents Klincken served several years as burgess of Germantown, but finally, in 1691, declined longer service for conscience' sake. He died at the age of eighty,

leaving a son, Anthony, a noted hunter, who spent a long life in such

exercises in the vicinity, and from whom the traditional name of Anthony has since been perpetuated in the Williams family.
