        Stoffel ChristopherVan Sandt (1670-1749), the eldest son of Garret and Lysbeth
        VanSant, was born in 1670 in New Utrecht (aka Brooklyn, New York). At the age of seventeen
        he took the oath of allegiance to Britain. In 1692 he married Annetje Stoffels and they had at
        least two children, a girl named Jannetze (1693) and a boy named Garret (1695-1700). Annetje
        died in May 1695. In 1698, Stoffel moved, along with his dad and siblings, to Bucks County,
        Pennsylvania, and there in 1705 he married Rachel Corsen. A year later he purchased 300 acres ofland in Middletown, Bucks County, Kentucky and became a member of the Bensalem Dutch
        Reformed Church.

        Stoffel was active in the political affairs of the Colony. He was Justice of the Peace for
        Bucks County and later became a representative to the Pennsylvania assembly from 1710-1714,
        and again in 1719. Over those years the Quakers, who administered the government, and the
        non-Quaker settlers became embroiled in heated disagreements over land distribution, political
        patronage, and Quaker monopoly of commerce. Fortunately, peaceable relations were
        maintained with the Lenape, Conestoga, and Iroquois Indians. Stoffel died in Middletown,
        Bucks, Pennsylvania on June 4, 1749. He was 79.
