      • Van Pelt: The Lane family (original name Laenen) were known under the names of Laenen, van der Laen, de la Lanen, etc. The imigrants put the "van Peelt" (or van Pelt) after Laenen, as a rule, by which it is to be understood that, while their
        real surname was "Laenen", they were also "from the Peel," expressed in Dutch by the words "van Peelt." The Peel is a tract of country in the nature of a morass, located both in the southern part of Holland and the Northern part of Belgium. In
        Belgium "the Peel" is in the province of Limburg. Directly contiguousto that province is the province (we should say county) of Leige, whose capital is the large and prosperouscity of Liege. The suppposition is that Teunis Jansen Laenen van
        Pelt and his brother were Walloons and not Hollanders, which seems to be well founded. Walloon is a semi-French language, as the Walloons were a semi- French and semi-Teutonic stock. The Walloons have always remained a separate and distinct
        people in what is now the northern and eastern portion of modern Belgium and constitute about one-fourth of the population of that country.
      • The Van Pelt Manor House was built in the town of New Utrecht around the 1670s, in the Original King's Highway Section, Brooklyn, New York. The house was used by American soldiers, including George Washington, during the Revolutionary War. The house was sold to the city and made a historic landmark in the first half of the twentieth century. It was torn down following a fire in 1952.
